1. Kickstarting Your Journey: The Onboarding Phase
A thorough orientation session serves as the first step of the onboarding phase. In this session, builders will learn about the Syntropy ecosystem, important resources for development, and community standards, giving them a strong basis for their projects. You’ll learn about how to use Syntropy’s data streaming protocol before it’s made publicly available.
During the Onboarding process, we’ll share the ins and outs of mentoring office hours, where builders can gain advice and insights from Syntropy’s expert internal engineering team. These resources will be invaluable throughout each builders’ journey by offering advice, responding to questions, and assuring smooth development from start to finish.
In addition, the builders will have access to a huge library of learning materials and documentation. With the knowledge they need to succeed, builders will be able to better comprehend the Syntropy platform, use its tooling stack, and work productively within the Web3 ecosystem thanks to this wealth of information.
2. Realizing Your Vision: The Building Phase
The next step is the core of the Syntropy Builders Program, where the concepts turn into reality. This phase is all about active development and leveraging Builder Program resources to bring your project to life. Throughout this phase, participants receive access to a rich repository of knowledge resources and a dedicated support team ready to address any technical roadblocks.
Participants will also interact with a vibrant community of fellow builders providing peer guidance and shared problem-solving. Regular catch-up meetings will be arranged between the builders and the designated project team members, providing an opportunity for regular check-ins and guidance.
Developer support resources will be made available to assist the builders with any technical challenges, ensuring smooth progression throughout the development process. The building phase also allows for effective management of project scope, addressing pain points, and discussions around milestone dates.
Builders can showcase progress on agreed channels, ensuring transparency and fostering a collaborative environment. This phase fosters active building and iterative progress, marking a significant step in realizing project objectives.
3. Pushing for Progress: The Review Phase
This is where Builders successfully get their project up and running, bringing a tangible project or product for use and testing with the help of their mentor. Upon completing a grant or mission, the evaluation team reviews the deliverables to ensure all milestones and requirements are met, offering a robust assessment of the project outcomes.
And of course, the Builders program wouldn't be complete without token rewards for successfully pushing their projects across the finish line. It's our way of showing how much we respect each participant's blood, sweat, and tears, awarded in the form of $NOIA tokens directly to participants' wallets.
Reward values – decided on a case-by-case basis – are based on the project's scale and impact. These tokens provide tangible recognition of a builder's efforts, while a commemorative NFT will also provide a lasting digital record of the builder's achievement in the Syntropy community.
4. Scaling Success: The Promotion Phase
You’ve built it, now it’s time to make them come. One of the major benefits of the Syntropy Builders Program is that we’ll put you and your project in the spotlight of our ecosystem and the wider world of Web3. This includes case studies, presentations at community events, and recognition on social media channels.
During the Promotion Phase, our goal is to amplify your project's impact beyond our ecosystem. We’ll aid in connecting you with potential collaborators and communities within the wider Web3 sphere, allowing your successfully built project to continue its journey. It’s all about growing adoption and impact in whatever area of Web3 you’re in.
