I asked chatgpt to summarize my post into one or two sentences.

9 Ideas for the Decentralized Future of Polkadot

The Web3 Foundation introduced the Decentralized Futures program for the Polkadot Network, here are my ideas for each of the 9 areas suggested by the program.

Technology Section:

1. Developer Experience: An Alternative to FRAME

Proposal for a new runtime development language to simplify development, offering a more user-friendly and standardized experience compared to FRAME.

2. Growth: FRAME + ink! (The Merge)

Suggests merging FRAME and ink! to enable using a single language for smart contracts, on-demand parachains, and dedicated parachains, streamlining the development process.

3. Interoperability: Reading State Across Parachains

Addresses challenges in multi-chain interoperability, proposing standardized tools for state synchronization and data sharing between parachains.

Development Ecosystem Section:

4. Development Services: Interactive and Meaningful Tutorials

Proposes creating and maintaining high-quality tutorials to improve developer education, emphasizing working systems and incentivizing experienced contributors.

5. High Value Partners: Community Auditors and Audits

Suggests a pathway for external audit teams to become Polkadot experts, offering free/subsidized audits to enhance trust and security in the ecosystem.

6. Enterprise: Competitive Research

Advocates for competitive research to attract Web2 companies, fact-checking narratives in other ecosystems, and learning from competitors to improve Polkadot’s product market fit.

Community Section:

7. On-Chain Governance: Treasury Proposal Templates

Proposes standardized online forms for funding proposals, emphasizing community discussion, gamification, and reputation systems to enhance proposal quality.

8. Decentralized Marketing: Modular Marketing Materials

Envisions a decentralized marketing resource website with reusable content formats, empowering community members to effectively communicate and promote Polkadot.

9. Events: Familiar Faces Fund

Suggests the Familiar Faces Fund to support key speakers at events, providing administrative assistance, funding, and collaborative narration for consistent representation.

Note: The summaries are concise; refer to the original post for detailed information.


For feedback, I would like to capture which if any of these ideas resonate most with readers.

I think the Web3 Foundation’s Decentralized Futures Program should support:

  • Developer Experience: An Alternative to FRAME
  • Growth: FRAME + ink! (The Merge)
  • Interoperability: Reading State Across Parachains
  • Development Services: Interactive and Meaningful Tutorials
  • High Value Partners: Community Auditors and Audits
  • Enterprise: Competitive Research
  • On-Chain Governance: Treasury Proposal Templates
  • Decentralized Marketing: Modular Marketing Materials
  • Events: Familiar Faces Fund
  • I do not think any of these ideas should be funded.
