Thanks for submitting this DeFi Slate team.

Couple of feedback comments:

  • Happy to have DeFi Slate team attend our existing monthly call (we have one tonight btw: https://twitter.com/dHedgeOrg/status/1374070767118323725)

  • Content creation that leads to conversions and increase in TVL is key, looking forward
    to what you’ll be up to. Please make sure to do what you can to measure it so the impact can be evaluated.

  • For sponsored links or podcast sponsorship, please consider it your organic posting rather than sponsored ads. While dHEDGE EcoDAO will be happy to support such contributions, in this case I don’t think this is a marketing campaign offer, your reward should be an encouragement to continue supporting organically rather than considering DeFi Slate as a commoditized marketing agency. If possible to weave it organically it’s preferred.

The branding is dHEDGE (All uppercase after the first ‘d’)

Happy to review your responses and then support this proposal.



Gotcha. We will include our own experiences of creating, managing, and investing in dHEDGE pools to encourage organic engagement. Rather than podcast sponsor, we will refer to dHEDGE as our decentralized asset management protocol of choice (which it is). This will be the case for all tweets, articles, blog posts, video content, etc. as well.

Edited post to emphasize organic engagement rather than sponsored marketing. Also, fixed dHedge → dHEDGE. Thanks for the heads up :slight_smile:

Thank your for your proposal.

With respect to feedback, I largely agree with @exponent points.

I think it is fine to position this arrangement as a sponsorship in some cases. For example, if you are doing a Podcast and discuss dHEDGE - you could mention dHEDGE as a sponsor of the show. Many DAO’s engage in this kind of top of funnel brand awareness/marketing activity such as AAVE with Bankless.

Given that DeFi Slate has a growing audience and a reputable brand - I would be comfortable to give you creative reigns over how you believe you could be market dHEDGE. Then at the end of each month, you would be required to provide a brief summary of your marketing activities to receive the contributor reward and then roll over arrangement into the next month.

For example, it would be great if at the end of each month your team could provide metrics on brand awareness/engagement on all dHEDGE related content so we can try to quantify engagement.

Outside of this - I plan to the proposal. Thanks again!
