Want to bring value and participate in the crypto and Web3 ecosystem but not sure how? Besides coding, you can also contribute by writing, aggregating content and much more.
Bringing Value To Crypto And Web 3
- Taking notes
- Sharing thoughts
- Aggregating content
- And many more opportunities are ripe for the taking.
Writing Digestible Crypto and Web3 Content
Additionally, one has to consider that developers may not make for the best writers. There is a massive difference between writing lines of code and writing a text that explains what that code does. Developers focus on building and can offer insights for writers to document the protocol and its importance in the crypto and web3 industry.
Another popular writing option is noting down your thoughts and opinions on projects, ideas, concepts, and future trends and sharing those with the public. Many platforms help you share your writing, including Medium, Substack, or starting your own website/blog. Sharing this information in a Twitter thread can also be useful, as it allows for reaching a big audience and engaging with them through the same platform.
Content Aggregation Is a Good Option
Aggregating content has become relatively easy, either through a blog or running a Telegram channel. Some even combine their findings in Twitter posts, either as infographics, short threads, bumpers, etc.
To aggregate content, you can easily look up the information yourself — social media, blogs, news sites, etc. — or use spreadsheets to fetch RSS feeds, among other tools. Of course, there is no limit to aggregate data regarding crypto and web 3, but putting it in a concise and bite-sized format can be challenging.
Create Proposals for Protocols
Found a crypto or web3 project you are passionate about? Good! These protocols will undergo constant evolution and upgrades, primarily due to ideas submitted by community members. In addition, nearly all projects have a social channel or forum where users can contribute ideas or things they think the developers need to improve upon.
Writing up a proposal for a protocol does not require in-depth technical knowledge or top-notch writing skills. A good understanding of English can go a long way toward submitting some thoughts on how protocols perform today and how you think the team can optimize it. Sharing these ideas with the community ensures an open dialog — both feedback and constructive criticism — and may spark new ideas of improvements for the team to work with.
While not all ideas or proposals will receive feedback immediately, there is no wasted effort when sharing personal views on a project or protocol. Moreover, it may lead to valuable insights to clarify misunderstandings or help others understand your train of thought.
Participate in DAOs
However, some DAOs focus on helping newcomers navigate the waters of crypto and web3. Examples include the Odyssey DAO and Scribe DAO, both of which serve as educational DAOs, rather than representing a specific project or protocol in the industry. Nevertheless, educating newcomers on the industry, its jargon, new projects and applications, and other aspects are essential for enabling mainstream adoption of these technologies.
Start a Youtube Channel or Podcast
There is a huge market out there for podcasts and YouTube content regarding crypto and web3. In fact, there may be more creators in this space than ever before, yet no one has the same take on industry developments, new projects, educational content, and so forth. If you feel like you can contribute something — either as a one-off or an ongoing venture — it is always worth exploring these options and see what kind of response you may receive.
