This Grant Application (the “Grant”) seeks funding to facilitate comprehensive reporting, research, and analysis for Band Protocol (“Band”).

Revelo Intel’s established track record of delivering high-quality analytical work further bolsters the credibility and potential impact of this proposal. By fostering an educated user base, this project directly supports Band’s mission, benefiting existing users and facilitating the seamless onboarding of new participants to the protocol.

The ultimate goal is to create an educational framework and contribute to the continuous growth and development of Band.

The envisioned impact will be realized through several deliverables, including:

Comprehensive Report: Revelo Intel will produce a consolidated and structured report of Band. This overview will contain all essential information about Band that DeFi users and investors require to make informed decisions. As part of this Grant, we will create one Comprehensive Report that will be continually updated in accordance with Band’s updates.

Performance Reports: Revelo Intel will deliver transparent reports highlighting critical trends, metrics, and pertinent data points. These reports will also shed light on user activity within Band. As part of this Grant, we will create 6x 30-day Performance Reports (6 months).

Event Coverage: Revelo Intel will actively cover all significant events, AMAs, interviews, Twitter Spaces, etc., related to Band. By providing in-depth coverage, the project will keep DeFi users and investors well-informed about the latest developments and opportunities within the protocol. As part of this Grant, we will create Contextualized Summaries of all significant events for 6 months.

7. What are the project goals?
Our educational initiative holds the potential to foster a more engaged, knowledgeable, and committed user base for Band. By supporting our Grant, Band significantly contributes to its own continuous growth, ensuring its competitive edge amidst the dynamic and evolving decentralized oracle landscape.

The impact of this initiative is far-reaching, benefiting existing users while facilitating the seamless onboarding of new participants. By providing users with the tools they need to make well-informed decisions, our work directly supports Band’s objectives of driving mass adoption; both retail and institutional.

We firmly believe that through this educational effort, Revelo Intel can make a significant positive impact on Band. By granting us the support we need to execute this initiative, Band will take a significant step toward securing a more sustainable, educated, and vibrant protocol.

8. How does this project bring value to the Band Ecosystem?
Our deliverables are designed to yield valuable outcomes for Band. Through our Comprehensive Report, Transparent Performance Reports, and Event Coverage, we aim to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Informed User Base: By offering in-depth and accessible educational content, we will empower DeFi users and investors with the knowledge to make informed decisions about Band.
  • Transparency and Insights: Our Performance Reports will provide a clear view of protocol performance, contributing to transparency and building credibility within the community.
  • Up-to-date Knowledge: We will keep our resources updated to reflect the evolving nature of Band, ensuring users always have access to accurate and relevant information.
  • User Engagement: We will keep users engaged with the latest developments and opportunities within the protocol through event coverage and summaries.

In summary, our deliverables will cultivate an educated, engaged, and strategic user base, enhancing the overall value, adoption, and success of Band.

9. Can you provide a project implementation plan with milestones?
Our deliverables and timelines are as follows:

  • Comprehensive Report: a Report to be published within 4 weeks of Grant approval
  • Transparency Reports: a Report to be completed monthly, 5 days after period-end. A Band-specific reporting template will be created and will require 3 weeks post-grant approval to set up.
  • Event Coverage: a detailed, contextualized Summary will be created within 48 hours of content airing

10. What budget are you requesting? (In dollars or BAND)
For this work, we are requesting $10,000 USD (or BAND equivalent)

As our deliverables require significant manpower, the Grant will be used entirely to subsidize this manpower.

The Grant will be approximately allocated as follows:

  • Comprehensive Overview: 50%
  • Transparent Reporting: 30%
  • Event Coverage: 20%

The requested funding and the breakdown of the funding are derived from an in-depth understanding of the time, expertise, and team resources necessary to successfully complete the proposed deliverables. Each deliverable requires a specific allocation of skilled analysts, researchers, and content creators. Additionally, the dynamic nature of the DeFi landscape necessitates continuous monitoring, updating, and communication to ensure the accuracy and relevance of the educational materials.

Our team’s extensive experience in providing similar services to the DeFi industry has enabled us to estimate the personnel and time investment required for each deliverable. This estimation takes into account the creation, review, refinement, and continuous updates of content over the 6-month period. By extrapolating the resources needed across all deliverables, we arrived at the requested funding value that would enable us to provide high-quality, consistent, and up-to-date educational content to the Band community.

After these 6 months, should Band wish to extend our support to their educational initiatives, we would be prepared to discuss and propose a similar arrangement.

Please treat this proposal as exploratory - we are happy to support Band through any combination and duration of coverage.
