  1. Project TL:DR
    Truts is enabling discovery of web3 communities in an efficient manner by combination of providing right information and reviews to help new people join the community and make it easier for them to explore the ecosystem.
    There are more than 500,000 communities in web3 including DAOs, NFTs, DApps, DeFi. But there is no efficient way to discover these communities. This is where Truts comes in to help people identify which communities to join and onboard them to web3.

Really great idea!
Having an already working product helps understand better where notifications can plug-in.

While adding EPNS to your platform is great, I would like to learn more about where exactly you plan to implement notifications aside from the tipping.

A list of use cases will really clarify much more the value proposition from EPNS.
Also, I Invite you to join office hours in our Discord in case you have questions or need assistance massaging this idea.

Other than tipping, we were also planning to integrate EPNS when someone upvotes or downvotes on a review, we are still figuring out how we can do it effeciently.

Would definitely join office hours and showcase product to everyone

@raj would be great if you could add the points discussed during office hours.

@raj
I believe something that will greatly help moving this forward is a more detailed breakdown of the notifications you are implementing based on milestones.

i.e.
Milestone1

  • notif for upvote and downvotes
  • notif for use case #2

Additionally, would be really helpful if you could provide some numbers regarding

  • Current users Total & Active
  • Forecasted number of communities to be onboarded by EOY 2022
  • Potential number of users forecasted by EOY 2022

Also, talking about your users/customers acquisition strategy and GTM.

Looking forwrd to these details!

Hey @Jaf

Our current traction,

560+ communities,
500+ reviews,
100k+ total website views,
6k+ unique users on website

All of the above in 2 months without any dollar spent on marketing.

Forcasted numbers,
No. of communities by EOY 2022: 4-5k at least
Potential users on platform by EOY 2022: 80-90k at least

GTM:

We are partnering up with chains to onboard all the projects, DAOs and other communities on respective chains. We are talking with 11 L1s and L2s which are industry leaders (can’t disclose names on a public forum since the talks are undergoing), that’s how we will capture the market.

Integrations for EPNS:

  1. Notifs for upvotes and downvotes
  2. Notifs for tips on reviews.

Let me know if you need any more details from our end.
