HUMAN community newsletter #4
Spearheaded by a strong and growing interest in the HUMAN grant and ambassador programs, resulting in a high volume of applications, we have seen a growth of 56% in page visits over the past two weeks.
HUMAN Protocol is interacted with by hundreds of thousands of users per day. The HUMAN App is not, at this point, the primary vehicle of HUMAN Protocol work, but remains a proof of concept to demonstrate how work could be accessed and distributed. The process of building out the App has been one we have learned from. The App, and the underlying open-source technology, are being designed for long-term success; it will continue to be iterated upon and evolve to optimize the user experience.
Due to the current high fees, we’ve decided to move withdrawals from the Ethereum to the Polygon network. To claim withdrawals, a Polygon wallet address must now be provided. It is advised that users hold their private key, as many exchanges do not support HMT on the Polygon network.
Pending withdrawals will be automatically switched from the Ethereum to the Polygon network after the user has provided their Polygon address.
We are currently accepting registrations from new users using the “Start earning HMT” button. New users will not be able to request withdrawals until the backlog of payments has been cleared, however; an email will be sent once withdrawals are activated.
HUMAN technology is designed to be open-source; it is through community participation that we achieve our vision of achieving a better future of work. HUMAN Protocol provides the means to address many challenges, and we’re making it as easy as possible to leverage it. Read more about the open sourcing of HUMAN technology in our blog piece.
With the popularity of the HUMAN grants program, we’re taking the opportunity to explain who the grants program is for, and which use cases may benefit the most from the Protocol. Read more in this ML-startup case study.
Since the official launch of the HUMAN ambassador program, we have received roughly 500 applications. We are incredibly proud that so many people want to be a part of the HUMAN community, and we look forward to welcoming the first wave of ambassadors and emissaries in the very near future.
Also, the release of the HUMAN DevBounty program is imminent. It will provide an open-source opportunity for developers to contribute to the building – and improvement – of HUMAN Protocol. Through it, we will regularly issue tasks on Gitcoin, with a predefined bounty set for each task. More details to follow in the coming weeks.
This month, the HUMAN team was in Lisbon at the Solana Breakpoint conference. It was a busy and productive week, and, in the coming months, we’ll be announcing new partnerships that we are really excited about. Stay tuned.
On the 18th of November, HUMAN's Technical Advisor and delegate judge Tom Mloduchowski conducted an online workshop covering the history of CAPTCHAs, the challenges of building fair, distributed Web 3.0 systems, and the design principles of Proof of HUMANity (PoH).
The purpose of the workshop, which was live-streamed and recorded, was to inspire the DAO GLOBAL Hackathon participants to build upon the work already conducted, and create a tool for building better DAOs. The proposed tool involves using PoH, HUMAN Protocol, and HMT to weave together a framework to ensure that Aragon Court judges are human, and not bots.
Watch Tom speak with Gitcoin about the issues of bot blocking in Web 3.0, and what is involved in designing secure systems.
