The purpose of this discussion post is to gauge community feedback/thoughts.
Quick one-line summary:
Should the Moonbeam Foundation have “sector experts” that focus on the growth of the different sectors ( DeFi, gaming, SocialFi, NFT, etc.) in the Moonbeam ecosystem?
There are different sectors in blockchain ( DeFi, gaming, SocialFi, NFT, etc.) To have a great ecosystem, we need to have a lot of successful dApps in each sector. There is an increase in dApps that want to build on Moonbeam. There are different pain points for building dApps in different sectors.
Should the Moonbeam Foundation have “sector experts” who aim to analyze the pain points and growth of dApps in each sector?
The sector experts can help identify critical issues in specific sectors. For example, a gaming sector expert could find it hard for developers to build games on Moonbeam because of xyz reason(s). The ecosystem expert can report to the Moonbeam Foundation and provide details on the progress of each sector. This way, strategies can be better developed to grow each sector. This will benefit the entire Moonbeam ecosystem.
The ecosystem experts would be responsible for talking to teams of each Dapp in their particular sector. If you are a sector expert for gaming, you should speak to the teams of each gaming dApps. The sector experts could even identify if specific dApps would add more value to their respective sectors than others.
In other words, the sector experts are the “boots on the ground.”
What would be the requirements to be an ecosystem expert ?
- Can dedicate a minimum of 10 hours per week to being sector experts. This includes talking to teams, developing KPIs, analyzing pain points, and reposting findings to the Moonbeam Foundation.
- The sector experts should have some background experience in the sector they are applying to.
Should “sector expert” be a paid position, and if so, how much?
I am looking forward to hearing the feedback of the community.
