The Proposal

This proposal, presented at Project Catalyst’s FUND12, consists of a free webinar, in Spanish, that will cover the fundamentals of blockchain technology.

The applicant’s goal, for this webinar, is to introduce the audience to the Cardano ecosystem, while explaining how blockchains work and why they were created, what problem they are trying to solve, and how they are trying to achieve it.

This is not content to teach how to install a wallet, the objective is that at the end of this webinar, which lasts more than an hour, the audience acquires a solid base of knowledge about this technology, and why Cardano differs from the rest.

The proposal seeks to promote inclusive and equitable quality education, and equal learning opportunities, and reduce inequality within and between countries.

While the content is for beginners, it will delve into some topics.

It is proposed StreamYard to stream the webinar. StreamYard is a professional in-browser recording and live-streaming studio that records content or streams it live to Facebook, YouTube, and other platforms.

The webinar will be open and free and broadcast live once a month for six months on different days and times. 

It will consist of six sessions, with a limit of 100 attendees per session, which will be recorded and hosted on YouTube and Odysee, so that anyone can watch later, whether they have been an attendee or not.

Participants will be able to ask questions at the end of each module. Once the 13 modules have been completed, a contest will be held with a prize, and USD 100 in ADA will be distributed among the three participants with the highest score. It will use Kahoot! for the contest, which is a Norwegian game-based online learning platform, making learning fun and engaging through competitive quizzes.

Each session will have 13 modules. The webinar is expected to last just over an hour, and extend to more than two hours, with questions from participants and the final questionnaire.

The Applicant

Martin Ungar, the actor in this proposal, participated in a Space X explaining it to the Spanish-speaking audience.

He says he has been in the crypto space since 2013 when he started mining Litecoin, a decentralized and open-source blockchain that launched in October 2011, which was created by Charlie Lee, a former Google employee, as an alternative to Bitcoin with lower fees and faster mining process.

He is currently the operator of the Chichen Itza stake pool (ticker ITZA), Cardano ambassador, and creator of educational content on blockchain technology in Spanish.

Martín’s chronology on Cardano:

SPO of Chichen ITZA since epoch 256 (March 2021)

Cardano content creator from April 2021

Cardano Ambassador from July 2022

Adapulse writer, with more than 30 articles written to date

Cardano Summit in Buenos Aires co-organizer

The Interview

LiberLion: Hi Martin! I would like to tell the readers that we have known each other for a while now, and we also share a common space in AdaPulse, where we write articles. Please tell the readers a little about yourself.

Martin: Hi LiberLion! Thanks for covering my proposal in Project Catalyst Fund 12. Like you say we’ve known each other for some time now, meeting in one of Cardano’s telegram groups. I’ve been involved in Cardano since 2021, as a content creator of educational videos and writing articles about crypto. I’m also a stake pool operator and Cardano Ambassador.

LiberLion: How did you find out Cardano and what do you expect from this ecosystem?

Martin: I found Cardano in 2018 when I was researching new crypto projects. I was originally drawn to it by its academic and formal approach to its development. I used to mine Litecoin back in 2013, so the idea of ordinary people being able to operate a stake pool was an important feature to me. I may be too idealistic, but my expectation as a whole for crypto and Cardano in particular is that it has the potential to be a tool for safeguarding individual freedoms in an ever increasing authoritarian world.

LiberLion: I think this is your first proposal in Catalyst, correct me if I’m wrong, but what are your expectations?

Martin: This is actually my second proposal. I presented and got funded back in fund 9 with the proposal title “Onboard New Hispanic Ethereum Users” in which I produced 9 videos to onboard Ethereum users to Cardano. I hope to get funded again this time to be able to bring this webinar to life.

LiberLion: Oh great! I think you will be elected again with your new proposal. Briefly, what would you propose to evolve the Cardano ecosystem?

Martin: Again, I might be too idealistic, but I think that the community is missing the forest for the tree. When I started actively participating in the Cardano community the goal was to take Cardano to the margins, be the financial operating system of the world and have liquid democracy. But instead it seems we are just building a plutocracy for entrenched insiders to get richer.

I thank Martin for his time.
