We are very excited to announce the launch of the Cardano Ambassador Program!
Cardano Ambassadors are people in the community who go above and beyond and provide regular, consistent and positive contributions to the project. This may be helping translate information on Cardano into other languages or organizing meetups in their local area. Whatever it may be, this program helps us recognize and acknowledge their good work! Furthermore, this program will help raise awareness and promote the Cardano project around the world.
At the time of this launch, we have identified four roles that will help grow and foster the Cardano community. These are:
- Meetup Organizers
- Content Creators
You can find the details on these roles including the criteria of actions that need to be fulfilled on the Ambassador Program webpage. On this page, you will also find a nomination form. Please use this form to nominate yourself or others in the Cardano community that you think should be considered. These will be used by the community team alongside the listed criteria at a monthly review.
It is important to note that the Ambassador status is earned through good work in the community and not something that is awarded by us or any other project members. We believe in decentralization, and that a strong community led by those who contribute the most is extremely important.
This is also an ongoing process where adjustments to criteria may need to be made and where new, additional roles will be proposed to fill necessary gaps that help grow our community in different ways!
If you have any other questions or suggestions about this program, please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you from the Cardano Community Team!
Update Regarding Incentives:
First and foremost, thank you to everyone who has given feedback, sent in nominations and participated in the Cardano Ambassador Program. Since our launch two weeks ago, we have already received and reviewed many nominations. It is a very exciting time to see all the contributions to the Cardano community happening all over the world! Note that the community team is working through all the nominations as best we can. Please expect a delay in response and be aware that reviews are done on a monthly basis.
In the coming weeks, we are planning to publish the community members who have already made the effort and qualified as Ambassadors. You will be able to view this list on the Ambassador webpage. You will also notice ‘badges’ on the Forum so you can easily identify them!
Finally, we wanted to address a common question which has been raised regarding incentives with this Ambassador Program. Incentives have always been a part of the plan for the Ambassador Program but as you can guess, there are delicate intricacies in creating a fair, functioning framework for this. The first phase of the Ambassador Program is to provide public recognition and additional support to the community members who have gone above and beyond for the Cardano community. The second phase will include the implementation of incentives, which is something we are working hard towards.
