Summary : Airdrop a little GEL to users who have used Gelato and might not know it (through dapps that use Gelato for automation, such as InstaDapp)
Background & Motivation : Many users of Gelato’s partners, mainly InstaDapp’s, have relied on Gelato for automation and therefore know it’s power and usefulness. However, they might not know what Gelato is or how it works. Giving them free tokens would act as a marketing strategy to attract both users and partners. Of course, this should apply to anyone who automated before 13th sep 2021 so that this proposal isn’t used as a mining strategy.
Now, this might be too much of a stretch, but, since InstaDapp would probably be happy about their users getting free tokens, Would it be too much to ask for to have them notify their users about their newly aquired GEL?
Note that I took InstaDapp as an example but this could be done for pretty much any of Gelato’s partners.
Participants/Team : Gelato Digital GmbH, InstaDapp (or whatever partner applies)
Milestones and Deliverables : I would wait for GEL price to stabilice before impementation so as to avoid volatility and speculation. Depending on how much GEL would get airdroped, it could take more or less time to complete the proposal. If it’s not significant to total supply, proposal could be implemented instantly. Otherwise, multiple small airdrops (similar to a vesting schedule) could be implemented to avoid price impact.
Risks : A lot of these users will inevitably dump. For them t’s free money and no need to research. That’s why I suggest only a small amount of GEL is minted for this. Also, some tokens might end up lost in wallets forever.
