Applications are now closed, please follow along in the public materials link (coming out November 1st, 2021).
OurNetwork contributors and the Dune team are partnering up to bring to fruition Web3's first learn-to-earn data program. We'll spend 30 days teaching a cohort of 30 students how to analyze data in Web3 and communicate their work publicly.
The program uses an application system, so there's no buying your way into this cohort. Even if you don't make it into the cohort, all material will be released publicly on Mirror for anyone to follow along with. We'll go into the specifics soon, but first...
Let's break down this program more intentionally:
I hope you're as excited about this as we all are. It's time to dive into the details and people behind this program👇🏽
The course will be staffed by six OurNetwork contributors alongside two Dune team members, shown below:
As mentioned, the course will be taught over a 30 day period, starting on October 25th and ending on November 24th.
All content will be released publicly with one week delays as Mirror entry editions (NFTs). For each lecture, if you collect the corresponding edition then you'll get access to extra content on glass.xyz. If you collect all 8 lecture NFTs, there may or may not be some special reward for you. 😉 All proceeds from collecting those entries will go directly to the teachers through the use of splits.
There will be 2 lectures a week, with focus groups an hour a day to work through queries and dashboards. We may adjust this if the pace is too fast/difficult for everyone.
Week one: Learning to become an Etherscan detective, no using premade tables yet!
Week two: Making sense of smart contracts, specifically learning to work with composability!
prices.usdto get to more informed data tracking.
Week three: Putting it all together, to become an open-source query Dune Wizard!
nft.tradesand NFTs more generally
Week four: Dashboards and Storytelling, really connect with the community behind the data!
A data course is nothing without good data. We could have chosen the protocol datasets arbitrarily, but we wanted to build a deeper relationship between students and protocol teams. As such, we have created protocol sponsorships with some of the top teams on Ethereum that have shown a strong history of data analytics and storytelling.
These protocols will be the primary focus for all course content and work published by students. They will appear on all course material as well, and have special access in our discord to work with students. All the ETH from sponsors will go directly to bounties for students - none of it goes to the teachers, Dune, or OurNetwork.
We have 1 ETH commitments from three protocol sponsors who we're super excited to work with:
For our final sponsor, we're going to do an open auction starting at 0.5 ETH. Once the first bid is in, the auction will last for three days. If you want to be a sponsor and have any questions about the program, feel free to DM me. Please note you should only bid if you are a protocol on Ethereum Mainnet or Polygon.
Now you're probably wondering, how do I get into this program?
We've created a short application form which you can find here. We're not looking for technical experience, we're looking for someone who is genuinely interested in using data for the good of the Web3 community and comes from a diverse background. So think of creative ways you can showcase all that, in this form or otherwise!
We'll be reviewing the applications up until October 20th 6pm EST. On October 22nd 10 AM EST we will release the admitted list on Mirror, where students will be able to claim their membership with an NFT.
Best of luck to you all, we look forward to welcoming our first class very, very soon. ❤️
