HUMAN community newsletter (#8)

2 min read

Highlights

As a result of our various marketing and community-engagement campaigns, we saw significant channel growth this month. This included our well-received NFT campaign, which remains open to submissions until April 1st. We’re also thrilled to announce that the first two grants have been awarded, which we’ll be sharing details about in the near future. The release of new tasks on the HUMAN App is also imminent. Stay tuned for an announcement.

Meanwhile, there’s the usual: great new content pieces, interviews with the team, events, and the building of our partner network.

The HUMAN App

The development team has been busy completing the integration of the first job exchange, hCaptcha, with the HUMAN App. This integration brings new data-labeling tasks to the App, and new earning opportunities to the 800,000 users that have already registered. 

Community and Growth

This month, we’ve sought to engage with our community in new ways, to support contributions to the project. This includes our first NFT campaign, which has seen overwhelming participation. It’s open to submissions until April 1st – so if you know any aspiring NFT designers, spread the word! 

We’ve also been working on creating new partnerships with popular YouTube and Telegram communities. More to come in the near future. 

As a result of our campaigns, which were focused on increasing awareness of the HUMAN brand and products, we saw some significant channel growth. 

Discord:

  • Total members grew by 56% compared to last month

Twitter:

  • Net follower growth ↗️ 257%
  • Total engagements ↗️ 17.7%
  • Post link clicks ↗️ 68.9%

Content and conversations

This month, we interviewed Andreas Schemm, our Head of Ecosystem and Development. In our discussion, he shared his insights on the programs, their progress, and shed some light on how HUMAN plans to scale this year. 

With all the grants program developments, it has been helpful for us to share example use cases of those who could apply to – and benefit from – our grants. To add to a rolling series of blog posts, we wrote a piece highlighting HUMANs application in the world of NFTs.

Next, we looked at two ways to understand the scaling potential of HUMAN Protocol. First of all, we took a look at our different approaches to scaling – from scaling through tech, to collaboration, and adoption. And secondly, we look at how HUMAN’s network effects can lead to an ever-increasing utility.

We are also delighted to introduce a piece by our first community contributor, Zac, who has written a great piece on the challenges of scaling AI.

Ecosystem 

We are very excited to announce that the first two grants have been awarded. We are looking forward to sharing a lot of content featuring these two amazing projects in the upcoming weeks.

The DevBounty program is picking up speed again, and we will be hosting our first digital hackathon in the first weeks of April. More information will be released closer to the event.

Partnerships 

We’re in the late stages of finalizing a number of exciting partnerships. These include a partnership with Harmony, which we’re aiming to use as a sidechain to support withdrawals and the requesting of jobs. 

We’ve also been creating new connections. Our attendance at the world’s biggest blockchain and tech events has been part of a drive to create new partnerships, as well as nurture existing ones. These conferences afford us the opportunity to extend our network, and share HUMAN’s progress and vision with blockchain and non-blockchain projects alike. 

Events 

We participated in the SXSW event, meeting with developers and projects from across the tech space, and organized a get-together to celebrate the bravery of Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistleblower.

We will also be attending AIBC Dubai next week, which brings together projects in FinTech, blockchain, cryptocurrency, exchanges, influencers, and policymakers. We’ll be meeting with our existing partners, and introducing ourselves to new projects, sharing HUMAN’s progress and vision. 

Coming up next, we’ll be attending WBS Dubai, ETH Dubai, and BTC Miami. We’d love to be connected to projects that may benefit from HUMAN Protocol and its products; if you know any, reach out. And if you’re in attendance, we’d love to chat.
