1. Opening Remarks 🚪
Season 3 Recap 🔙
It’s the beginning of a new Season at Talent Protocol, and every new ‘Welcome’ has its ‘Goodbye’ 😢 Season 3 was full of new highs and lows, especially being the first Season in the bear market and the one that lasted longer (9 months) 🤯
Did you see what pcbo.tal mentioned? Time to take a look at the achievements we thrived in:
- Talent Mates NFT Launch & ~1k minted until the end of S3 👤
- Snapshot for community governance voting 🗳️
- Identity Verification ✅
- .tal domains Launch 🔗
- Public API 💻
- New Support Models 💪
- Talent House 🏡 Rebrand to Take Off ✈️
… and literally so much more! The list goes on forever and you can check it here 🗞️:
You’ll never build Alone 🧑💻
The motto that we will follow until the end of this Season 4, “You’ll never build Alone”, empowers a connection between builders through shares of their goals, feeling seen and supported. 🎯
“Feeling seen is a little bit different from being visible” - filmacedo.tal, Community Call #19
Talent Protocol works the way that being visible should represent understanding, progress and development of one’s self towards success, and not simply having it without working on it. This is what keeps our values alive and what it all stands for since the beginning 💜 You will probably hear a lot about this these next months!
Season 4 Strategy 🌟
Words of are always home to comfort for expectations, though if we have to strategically position Talent Protocol these next months, it’s simpler to say that “we want to build a social and economic platform where any builder can commit to future goals, to they progress and the support they need to succeed”.
The North Star Metric ⭐ will definitely help sorting out members with active goals on the platform. With this, comes the Product KPIs: Monthly Active Members (MAM) numbers, New members numbers and Engagement numbers that obviously complement the overall Product Strategy. Let’s start achiving goals together 💯
S4 Key Deliverables 🔜
🤔 Remember our snapshot voting about key deliverables? Well the results are out and will soon be being put thought into:
- Goal-centric UX 🎯 Redesign the app’s main use case to highlight goals and progress. Connect goals with sponsorships so members can get support.
- AI Assistant 🤖 Use AI integrations to help members write better goals and better updates.
- Career Updates 💫 Rebuild Career Updates to incentivize more quality, create a space for feedback, and improve the distribution of updates.
- Sponsorships 💸 Earn cash-back in TAL every time you sponsor a talent.
- Tokens of Appreciation 🙏 Help members grow their inner circle of supporters with special invitations that recognize and reward their true supporters.
2. Product Updates 🚀
Virtual Wallet 💼 & Collective Pages 👥
And did we get an overview of the fresh look of the collective pages 😎 (starting 26:47)
WalletConnect V2 Integration & GoodDollar 🪙
A little last minute surprise 🤯 of WalletConnect V1 shutting down, turned out to be a fun process onto migrating to the V2, and therefore it nows allow us to move with our recent partner GoodDollar provided their recent launch on Celo! GoodDollar performs as a Universal Basic Income (UBI) project that allows users to collect the G$ token for its concept, and Talent Protocol has made it possible to now use it to sponsor others. 😍
New Quests & WorldID Integration
The very brand new quests page was introduced some weeks ago, but we are continuously making it better than the last time you visit it by adding additional quests to it!
Along with the new quests, you may find a super special integration with WorldCoin through their WorldID service 👀 All you have to do is validate yourself as a human and receive your ⚡1000 XP. We’re also the first platform to integrate WorldID in Europe 👏
