Seeking Mission Request Sponsorship

Onboarding Prominent Content Creators in Strategic Markets to OP and RPGF

Delegate Mission Request Summary:
This mission aims to create engaging campaigns with crypto content creators who have large native crypto following. Most marketing efforts fail to produce desired results (increase in users, gov participation and buy pressure) because they focus on copy pasta strategies and teams often lack experience and an audience they can convert to users and ecosystem participants. Onboarding a diverse set of established creators serving strategic markets allows marketing efforts to create quantifiable results.
