Africa remains a potent force and an untapped market in the crypto space, this initiative seeks to achieve.

  1. Develop and build a very vibrant icon community in Africa, seek out partnerships in the continent and onboard Devs from the continent into Icon. We will be using the power of social media engagements like twitter, organizing and attending events and meetups to present the icon project,article writing, reaching out to crypto communities through “ask me anything sessions” on different exchanges like Binance Nigeria, Huobi Nigeria and other groups we will also leverage the power of graphics that speak.

  2. Set up and grow the IcxArmy twitter handle,the aim is to gather people from different areas and geographies whose sole job is to tweet and retweet information that will help the project,it is intended to get social media sentiments about icon very high and also kill fuds if any should come up.even the ceo of Binace adviced projects to set aside some funds for the sole purpose of fighting FUD, his advice can be found here https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1197720622681321472 .

the power of social media cannot be over emphasized.we will be running regular giveaways on the handle to build a very large Army for marketing purposes. as at the time of submitting this proposal the icxArmy twitter handle is already being set up.

We have already started a series of activities in the past few months all geared towards establishing a formidable presence in Africa, the community has continued to grow organically some of the things we have already done include.

we organized two offline events in the month of may and June

We also wrote an article on how icon can be used to solve trade problems in Africa which all received positive engagements from the community .

people usually absorb and act on information bit by bit, because of this we started a twitter campaign, the objectives is to leverage the use of graphics to represent facts about the icon project, this received a very positive engagements from the community, the links include

Hi there, overall I like the idea of having compassionate team in Africa. However, before we give out grant I think your team should build more credential in order to get it. Could you be more active in ICON community for next one or two month so we can build trust each other? thanks!

Thanks for the response, my team is quite active on twitter, will be more active on telegram if that is what you meant.
icxarmy is already set and gradually getting some traction

Review Comments

Please provide 3-5 KPIs for your project, for example

  • ICXarmy twitter
    • Current Followers: 15
    • Target Followers: 500
  • Meetups
    • Target Registrations: 100 people
    • Target Participants: 50 people
  • Etc. etc.

Also, please think about lowering the budget if possible. Looking at your plans, it looks like only costs are meetup and AMA rewards and we do not think 2,500 is necessary for these costs. If you can provide more information on justifying this cost we understand, otherwise please try to lower the cost.

Thanks for your comments.
meetup costs are as follows.
$230 for logistics and $80 for announcements on campus media channels like campus radio (4 slots at 20 usd for a slot), $310/meetup, for 3 meetups = $930
Ama on binance Nigeria = $ 500 giveaways ( minimum requirement for ama on Binance Nigeria).
collaboration between crypto twitter groups to build up icon africa and icx army $150 for each handle totaling $300 (as giveaways). basically what the groups does is to retweet my messages and encourage there followers to also follow the handles.
930 +500+300 = $1730
the balance of $770 takes care of the graphics designs , content creation in the form of articles to be distributed on iconafrica medium channel and publish0x and compensationfor the team
we expect minimum of 40-60 participants/attendance for each meetup
our activities we expect will increase icx army from current 15 followers to 150-200 followers
iconAfrica from current 64 followers to 150-250 followers. Thanks
