Solution to Onboard New Users to Polkadot & Kusama

There have been a lot of discussions and debates on the marketing and communication strategies of Polkadot & Kusama and I think they all boil down to the pressing pain point of onboarding new users. How can we make Polkadot & Kusama so easy to understand/interesting/impressive that everyone wants to jump in?

One possible solution: a visually appealing and comprehensive Polkadot & Kusama Ecosystem Map, like this one by SubWallet and dotinsights with support from Parity Technologies.

500+ projects are featured in 26 categories, from Wallet, Infrastructure, DeFi, SocialFi to NFT Marketplace, Smart Contract, Metaverse, Tooling, etc… The Ecosystem Map is presented in two views, Most Loved Projects and Projects By Category. Starting Nov. 18 at 12:00 AM UTC sharp, the community can vote for their favorite projects and push them up in the ranking table simply by logging in through the ultimate Polkadot wallet SubWallet and signing a gas-free transaction. Each address can cast 1 vote/project and can vote for an unlimited number of projects.

Along with the launch of the Polkadot & Kusama Ecosystem Map, dotinsights also introduces Polkadot Deep Dive Report Q3 2022 after the success of the H1 2022 inaugural report. As the name suggests, this comprehensive quarterly report series is the first of its kind to dive deep into the states of the Polkadot & Kusama Ecosystem all from layer-0 through to layer-2, with 6 main sections including Ecosystem Overview, The DeFi Economy, NFT, DAO, Web3 and Get Started With Polkadot. The Q3 report will be available in 7 languages so that more communities can gain access and have a better understanding of the Ecosystem.

Similar to SubWallet, the principle of dotinsights is that all products are works-in-progress that are open to suggestions and constructive feedback. We appreciate all contributions from the community to constantly update and improve the Report and the Ecosystem Map (heads-up: we’re working on project subpage that will contain project description, investors, received grants, real-time Dev Activity & on-chain data where applicable). Everyone can create an issue or a pull request on our Github:!

Any questions and discussions are warmly welcomed!

Cheers xD
