Ambassador Program Season 2 - Discussion

As Season 2 approaches, what are our goals? As ambassadors, you play a vital role in supporting DappRadar’s marketing initiatives. The team consists of ambassadors who provide PRO members with newsletters, others who showcase DappRadar on Twitter to expand our reach, and some who contribute to the ecosystem by listing dapps and projects.

As Season 1 is nearing completion at DappRadar, we have a few weeks left before embarking on three months of planning and work for the ambassador program.
Over the past six months, we’ve managed only one meeting (DappRadar x Ambassador), though much more was necessary. Although we organized a couple of spaces, we did not continue with that initiative. Meanwhile, I, Alex, remained actively engaged with the ambassadors and many other team members. So, we will hold a Spaces call before the end to discuss what has happened and address any difficulties, laying the foundation for Season 1.

What are the necessary requirements?

  • Budget: 1.8 million RADAR, plus an additional 200K RADAR for bonuses and rewards.
  • Duration: 6 months
  • Limitations on external tools

Expected outcomes of the discussion:

  • A structural plan outlining 6 months (Season 2).
  • A task plan detailing each person’s responsibilities.
  • Methods for calculating task outcomes.
  • Key Performance Indicators to assess the program’s effectiveness.
  • We’re planning to increase the allocation for ambassadors to 15. However, this could stay as 10 based on our discussions.
  • We’ll provide an opportunity for those no longer able to participate in the program to leave gracefully, so please prepare for that transition.

Alex, I’m very much looking forward to Season 2 of The Ambassadors, and I think we have a good chance of scaling both the number of ambassadors we work with and the game as a whole, by making incentives more in line with the results.

I like the separate bonuses and rewards budget, maybe we can even increase it, let’s see - it depends on the number of ambassadors, so that the total allocated budget is not changed.

But what I’m saying is that we can reward exceptional performance and exceptional results. The more I think about it, it doesn’t even have to be quantified into a KPI, because it can be a qualitative result, or a breakthrough into new ecosystems etc. For example, if an ambassador is active in other DAOs and promotes DappRadar DAO there, resulting in a new partnership, or a new quest, or even a grant - then that would be an action worthy of rewards and treasure chests!

And the treasure has to be aligned with the achievement!

I appreciate our Ambassadors immensely, they are our front line and our connection to crypto twitter and more. I want them to understand how much we value them by rewarding smart efforts, concrete achievements and advancements made for DappRadar DAO.



Hey Guys! I’m loving doing the Pro Newsletter and trying to improve the best i can. I hope people are enjoying. Trying to be present on X at least 2 times/week. I think this is working smoothly and we can improve. I’m gonna take a time to think about new kpis and what we can improve together. DAO Events sounds good. Let’s keep building


Another suggestion is that we start the next season before the end of the year. End of the year seems like end of times :rofl:


i think your a good ambassador, the news letters are good i don’t sit and study them like but they are informative from what i seen and layed out very well and you are active =D i always put a thumbs up and pro when i notice them =D

Also notice your presence on Twitter and you say stuff about your self as well as promote DappRadar as well often so im glad your with us =D

If we start in August this year and it lasts 6 months means Last month is in Jan which isn’t too bad at all considering at x mas time a lot of us will be busy with holidays and stuff. (if are last month is on x mas that’s not good lol as around that time things can be unpredictable tho i’d still like too see some x mas events go off for sure =D )

And also on top of that giving us 3 months to sort out the ambassador program gives us plenty of time to sort out what is expected cuz me personally i feel we are everywhere and there’s no order as such to things we are not coordinated enough this isn’t ideal some of the ambassadors are basically doing nothing >.>

I want us to be put in teams if anything id like to suggest more ambassadors put us in teams. (it can almost work like the league) 5 teams of 5 people.

1:team leader and the other 4 (the team are given the tasks that we already have but its up to the team how they do these tasks and who does them ect)

Team leaders job is to make sure all the tasks gets done if possible and if not give a reason as to why not and write up a report every 2 weeks or 1 a month on what the team has done. I would also like to suggest that the DappRadar team writes back a review report on how the teams are doing and give feedback on what can be improved or if they would like a certain team to aim for something a little different ect this would help alot.

AI says this about the thing i suggested:

Ambassador Teams Structure:

  1. Team Formation: Ambassadors are organized into teams consisting of five members each. Each team is led by a designated team leader responsible for task delegation and coordination.
  2. Task Assignment: The DappRadar team assigns tasks to ambassador teams, outlining objectives and expectations. These tasks could include community engagement, content creation, event organization, and outreach initiatives.
  3. Team Autonomy: Teams have autonomy in deciding how to approach and execute assigned tasks. They can distribute responsibilities among team members based on individual strengths and interests.
  4. Team Leader Responsibilities: The team leader’s role is to oversee task execution, ensure deadlines are met, and provide support to team members as needed. They also compile regular progress reports on behalf of the team.
  5. Reporting and Feedback: Teams submit progress reports bi-weekly or monthly, detailing completed tasks, challenges encountered, and future plans. The DappRadar team reviews these reports and provides feedback to enhance performance and alignment with organizational objectives.

This structured approach fosters collaboration, accountability, and efficiency within the ambassador program. It allows for better task management, clearer communication channels, and more targeted community engagement efforts.

5 teams of 5 is alot tho that’s 25 ambassadors.
Might be better just starting off with 3 teams of 5 i guess be easyer to keep track of that way and not turn into a overbearing work load.

Also means you have to only check 3 reports every month or every 2 weeks as well and tell the 3 teams what u would like of them (makes this part alot easyer on you guys who are part of that aka alex)


I agree with this. Giving out bonuses based on the impact of the work done to DappRadar makes sense.


I am enjoying reading the newsletter! Kudos on your efforts researching those infos for us.


Thank you! it feels great that it’s valuable!


If we did it in teams what would be the tasks that needed doing by the teams and we have 10 ambassadors at moment so if we mix and match us between 3 teams of 5.
We can work out what are weakness and strengths are in the teams before the season starts ect

But if we could find out what would be expected of a team each month that would be nice.

Hello everyone!

First of all, I’d like to thank every single one of our Ambassadors for their efforts and contributions in Season 1. And @Alex-Mammoth , you did a great job with planning and managing the whole program. Kudos to you all!

For Season 2 of the Ambassador Program, I believe that we should come up with a brand new approach based on our previous learnings and future product plans. As you all know, with the establishment of the DappRadar Foundation, we reached an important milestone towards the progressive decentralization of DappRadar. As the next step, we are working on different work streams to function with the DAO. In this sense, I believe that the Ambassador Program should also be a part of those work streams. This means pausing the idea of the Ambassador Program for now and starting to work on activating a community work stream where people can start contributing to DappRadar through the DAO.

Also, there is a need for a scalable tool to have a larger and more efficient Ambassador Program. Currently, we are deeply focusing on gamification on DappRadar, and I believe that the tools and products we are building for it will be important assets for this program. We are coming to the end of Season 1 of the gamification, and we have already started working on scaling it with Quests and more gamified features on DappRadar. This will allow ambassadors to engage and grow the community not only on social media and community channels but also directly on our platform. We should give room to all those developments and come back with a stronger approach.

I believe that in the end, this will bring more dynamism and excitement to the program, as well as more benefits for the Ambassadors.

I’d like to hear your thoughts on that.


Gm, really like this so far @ayseguls.

It’s been great being able to grow and engage with the different Ambassadors over the past months. As a member of the Progressive Decentralization Workstream (PDW), part of our mandate is to help get more community-based contributions, and the Ambassador program plays a big part in making that possible.

We still have 4 months left of the current PDW budget, and it makes sense to use our mandate and budget to onboard some Ambassadors during this time, rather than making a whole Proposal to pay them directly through the DAO treasury.

In these four months, we can:

  • work on maintaining the Ambassadors’ role in the DAO
  • rewarding the Ambassadors that have been the most active
  • and then working out the next structure for the Ambassadors as a workstream and on the product level too.

I like the idea of adding more gamification to the Ambassadors’ role too. Especially as future roles will be aligned with levels, and XP leads to rewards, I agree that it’ll make the Program more fun and rewarding for all involved. For example:

  • Listing on the platform could provide Ambassadors with XP.
  • Perhaps a Quest can be made for Content Creation, then Ambassadors and content creators could submit content and be rewarded with points too.
  • And lastly, a Quest for community contributions could be created, where Ambassadors could get points for being active in the community, using Discord, Forum, and social media APIs to extract that engagement data.

Looking forward to evolving these ideas.


like this idea of giving me 4 more months nathan <3 and the others who have stuck around =) before it turns npc =) i hope i can keep up…lmao… and i hope I’m wrong about turning npc but i can see it.

which ever way wind blows…

sounds like some good ideas long as it helps radar grow im all for it long as DAO treasury grows im all for it.


Thank you all for the comments.

After discussions and consideration about the program, I have concluded that “Ambassador” equates to “Outreach.” Based on our program’s development so far, it has been a mix of outreach and contributions. While outreach is a type of contribution, our focus has primarily been on internal contributions to the ecosystem rather than bridging the outside to the inside. Therefore, I suggest we move away from the concept of “Ambassador” and adopt a “Contributor” model.

We have discussed this in Season 0 and Season 1 and mentioned multiple times that Ambassadors would be a significant part of the DAO community.

With that in mind, here is what I am proposing and I want to hear your thoughts:

  • Step away from the idea and name of “Ambassador.”
  • Establish a workstream OR an initiative within a workstream.
  • Select contributors from the Ambassadors under a certain budget in the DAO to join and contribute to specific tasks.

The tasks I am considering, which are non-outreach but rather contributory, include:

  • Community support
  • Dapp listing
  • Content creation for Twitter and PRO newsletters

We will start this way and pause the Ambassador program until further developments. The aim of the Ambassador program in the future will focus solely on outreach, with a large-scale and automated process to ensure it is highly effective.

If all is well and we receive positive feedback on this, we can scale the discussion and start working on the plans, transformation process, and its implementation.

Note: Contributions in this case aim to either scale data, scale community performance, or scale content to the community. We will need to clearly define this.

Do you agree with moving from the “Ambassador” model to the “Contributor” model?

if you feel it needs to change i agree with it, I love the ambassador title lmao do i want it changed to contributor NO but still lmao of course i can i dont mind at all… i want to keep my community knight spot and my room on discord (for when i need help or to say something)

I’m glad we are transitioning to Contributors. Contributors are also regarded as Ambassadors who are actively involved in the growth internally and externally as well as models who unifies the community and the DAO.

If the Ambassadors become Contributors then we do not need the Ambassador programme anymore and it should be scrapped instead of paused.

Moving to a contributor model with our ambassadors is in the spirit of the DAO, as we’re starting to implement the contribute2earn model. But this has to be done is such a way that the wider community and people outside the community will see that the contribute2earn model works, is successful and may adhere to it as well. So the new Contributors would play a big role in that, in making the market see how any why they should also contribute to the DappRadar ecosystem.

Of course, Contributors’ responsibilities would be higher than Ambassadors’. @vandynathan we’ll have to fit this in the different contributor roles we defined in the governance.


just changed my profile on twitter from ambassador to contributor.


i been thinking about this subject and if you want me to be reaching out to projects and stuff I’m changing my title back to ambassador because it carries more weight than the title contributor. (if I’m trying to promote the contribute to earn scheme I’m going to keep the title contributor) just to let you all know. >.>

No as i mentioned, we won’t focus on outreach with the current contributors. If we will it will be an ambassador program on a large scale.


Thank you, Bayar, for joining the planning session. We will start planning after the poll posted previously has received successful votes for seven days.
