2. Nature of the event
At OSOM we launched a podcast where we try to educate our customers, and anyone who’s interested, more about crypto and are coming up on our 25th Episode. We’ve sort of figured out our rhythm now and have about 300 listeners by episodes as of late.
Listeners seem to like it and we often get praised from outside our customer base.
We would like to celebrate the 25th episode and reward those who listened, gave feedback & shared it, acknowledge the middle of the bear market, and find a way to start engaging the listeners more broadly to do more co-creation of the content.
And POAPs - which I’ve been following for a while - seemed like the best idea to do so.
So we’d like to issue a commemorative POAP
Especially since that will likely drive some folks to try to setup a non-custodial wallet for the first time, which is one of our ultimate goals but not that easy to make happen.
We believe this is in line with the spirit of “Wen POAP?” . The idea is to “acknowledge the non-material (and yet, invaluable) contributions that members of a community contribute”, and to use it to enable more contribution.
As we go forward, we plan on baking the issued POAPs into community building and content creation but issuing a POAP for a milestone episode will likely be a one-off.
The next POAPs we would issue would instead most likely be for live on-line or f2f events & meetups we do around the podcast. But we feel like starting with the few podcast listeners we currently have is a good to kick start the process.
3. Distribution plan
The idea is to distribute the POAP using a Website.
While the guidelines state that websites are not ideal for on-line events and that for Audio events the “secrets” is better, we are of the opinion that the Website represents the least friction.
Using Secrets requires the downloading of an additional app, which we fear many people won’t want to do.
Seeing our listenership is currently small and that we will only give out the link in the podcast (and not the text description) we are not worried about people trying being able to unjustly claim the POAP. And we don’t think any of our listeners would leak the info.
When it comes to the timeframe, we understand that the advice is to keep the window open for a short timeframe.
However, we encourage SLOW news consumption, and put out only 2 episodes a month (on average) and actively advocate that people shouldn’t be “too glued” to short term news. And we don’t want to penalize anyone who would wait 2 weeks to listen to the episode. Hence, for this time and this time only, we ask to be allowed to keep the window open for the entire month (which is until the next “market monthly” episode comes out).
300 POAP should cover all out monthly active listeners. We don’t want more than that.
4. Why do you believe this petition is being held?
I seem to have understood that it’s not “being held” so much as “appealing” is part of the standard process now. I didn’t understand at first because I only relied on the help centre & website (which make no mention of that as far as I could see).
While waiting for an email signaling “white smoke” I looked around in the community and found this post which states " unless you’ve specifically submitted a request through Discourse, there should be no expectation that the request will be reviewed." . So here I am, asking for a review
For any question, please feel free to reach out to me here email@example.com or through here on Discourse, of course.
An thank you for this awesome “primitive” for Web3
