Delegate Optimism

Delegate Mission Request Summary:

Launching four cybersecurity awareness campaigns quarterly, featuring a blend of pioneering and emergent blockchain projects. The objective is to dissect and illuminate project-specific security measures, facilitate user safeguarding practices, and deliver comprehensive community education on cybersecurity within the blockchain domain. This initiative is designed to allow projects to concentrate on their core development while we spearhead the critical task of enhancing user security literacy. With each campaign spotlighting 6-8 projects, we aim to elevate the security posture of approximately 30 projects annually.

This endeavor is critically timely, given the surge in Layer 2 solutions and the escalating complexity of cybersecurity threats in these ecosystems. It addresses the urgent need to prevent users from missing out on crucial security insights that could protect them against sophisticated cyber threats.

How will this Delegate Mission Request help accomplish the above Intent?

  • This strategy streamlines the process for projects by offloading the complex task of cybersecurity education and awareness. We leverage our expertise as a blockchain cybersecurity expert to represent their security initiatives, educating the community and magnifying their impact.

  • By enabling projects to focus on their core offerings, we manage the comprehensive aspects of their cybersecurity campaigns, including the creation of secure Discord environments, cybersecurity NFT designs, promo videos, educational materials, and interactive security challenges with potential rewards. Engaging 6-8 projects per campaign, we aim to elevate the security awareness of ~30 distinguished or emerging projects on Optimism, thereby onboarding users more securely to the projects/ecosystem and educating them on preventing cyber threats.

  • Our campaigns go beyond mere task listings. They encompass a rich mix of cybersecurity education, project-specific security feature reviews, and practical advice on safeguarding digital assets. This “learn by doing” approach, potentially coupled with rewards, is designed to benefit both developers and users, contributing significantly to the ecosystem’s resilience against cyber threats.

What is required to execute this Delegate Mission Request?

  • In-depth analysis and evaluation of new projects on Optimism, focusing on their cybersecurity measures.
  • Engaging with projects to understand their specific security education needs.
  • Collaborating with project teams to conceptualize and implement tailored cybersecurity awareness strategies.
  • Identifying and working with platforms suited for hosting these campaigns, ensuring optimal engagement and impact.
  • Working closely with projects and the creative team to develop compelling cybersecurity education materials, including secure Discord setup audits, NFT designs, promotional videos, and infographics.
  • Creating and distributing high-quality educational content on social media, highlighting the latest cybersecurity threats, best practices, and innovations.

How should the Token House measure progress towards this Mission?

  • Maintain a list of projects invited and confirmed for each campaign.
  • Detail the cybersecurity awareness activities and challenges proposed by each project.
  • Outline the educational threads and content to be distributed across all social media platforms.
  • Produce NFT designs, promotional videos, and other marketing materials focused on cybersecurity.
  • Schedule each campaign, noting their commencement and conclusion dates.

How should badgeholders measure impact upon completion of this Mission?

  • Compile a comprehensive report summarizing the campaign outcomes.
  • Gather feedback from projects post-campaign.
  • Document the range of published educational content.
  • Track engagement metrics such as likes, shares, impressions, and comments.
  • Report on the participation rates in the campaigns and security challenges.


Managed 4 discords and audited 6 to ensure security was maintained and education, engaged over 8
20,000 users in cybersecurity education within these last four years and Optimisim was a project I looked into and had respect, for transparency and was blown away at how after reviewing Optimism that it was a blockchain that was definitely going to push forward. These campaigns involved collaboration with high-profile projects like Marketcap, Paraswap, Bungee, Jumper, Bebop, and Hop Protocol, where the focus was on elevating their cybersecurity visibility and user protection measures. Despite the success, there’s always room for growth and improvement, which we aim to achieve by leveraging our extensive experience as a cybersecurity expert in blockchain, analyzing transaction security, and auditing project-specific Discord environments for enhanced security.

Here are links to previous campaigns and threads that shed light on our comprehensive approach to blockchain cybersecurity awareness. Our commitment to continuous improvement will drive our efforts to further secure the blockchain ecosystem against evolving cyber threats.

GM @philliprossii! Thank you for your proposal, however I need to let you know that the process to propose new Mission Requests is over, all the Delegate Mission Requests have already passed all the processes and you can find the ones that passed the Voting phase here: Issues · ethereum-optimism/ecosystem-contributions · GitHub
Stay engage as this process will happen again next Season (the second half of 2024) so you’ll be able to share your Mission Requests and find a delegate who sponsor it. Have a great weekend! :sparkles:


Thank you and I will ensure being in time. Appreciate the comment.
