Hi everyone! Long-time lurker and occasional shit poster. I’ve been experimenting with some Numerai Youtube videos and I am pretty happy with the results so far. So, I’ve decided to make a proposal so I can get some feedback from the community, and see if the community wants more proposals around content creation.
- Proposal // A summary of the project you’re proposing and who is going to be working on it
My aim for these videos was to do shorter how-to / tutorial style videos for the tournament (& Hopefully signals in the future if everything goes well!). I’ve posted the engagement from the first 4 videos of my series and am looking to do around 4 more (I try to keep the videos ~10-15 mins long).
The remaining topics I was looking to cover were:
• Training a Numer.ai model in the cloud (For those having memory issues with their local setup)
• Staking, Scoring & Diagnostics
• Automatically submitting predictions with NumerCLI
• Buying/staking submissions via NumerBay.
Timeline // When could you start working on the project, if approved; And how long would it take?
I can start immediately, producing a video biweekly. Can have the 4 remaining videos done by Jan 31st.
Best case outcome // What does success look like?
Best case outcome is more people are exposed to Numer.ai through my videos and join the tournament, signals, or community.
Worst case outcome // What could go wrong? The more thought that goes into this, the better.
Nobody watches the videos // low engagement and new users. If the community does not like my style/content in the videos, perhaps harm Numerai’s reputation.
Success criteria // How can the success of this project be objectively measured and evaluated?
Was hoping to rely on YouTube/Twitch analytics for the most part here. I am hoping that with better tagging, titling, editing, etc. I can improve engagement, but hard to ballpark a target (Maybe 2.5K views cumulative views by Jan 31st? Open to suggestions here)
Funding required, if any.
So far, it’s been taking me a couples days to research/code/debug/record/edit each video. So I’d ballpark ~ 8 hrs of work going forward per video (~12 NMR using the rate from previous proposals).
