The Request Foundation Backs Web3creators to Support Web 3.0 Builders

Image

👋 Request enthusiasts,

At Request, we have always been big on two things: building things people want, and helping others to do the same.

While we have had our own blog and social media channels for some time now, we always wanted an avenue to highlight other stories other than our own. That’s why we’re delighted to announce our support for the launch of Web3creators.com.

What is Web3creators? 🦸

Web3creators.com is an independent media channel which aims to help people to build their projects & careers in DeFi.

That includes the OG crypto gang who have been building alongside us in the space since the early days of crypto, the new wave of artists and creatives who have entered the crypto space, and the freelancers, founders, and employees at crypto projects building the future of finance.

As we move from a world built around Web 2.0, to an economy increasingly defined by the principles and technologies of Web 3.0, Deficreators will support the builders and changemakers.

Here’s how.

1. Delivering high-value content

The new platform is to be an assembly ground for creators and thought leaders to come to share their journeys, inspire their peers, newcomers, and enthusiasts eager to discover more about the space.

The editorial team at deficreators.com are always looking for founders and innovators with interesting stories to share, understanding and assessing use cases, and covering interesting developments in DeFi, and Web 3.0

2. Building a community of creators

In his Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism, Benedict Anderson explained that communities are distinguished “not by their falsity or genuineness, but in the style in which they are imagined”. Going on, Anderson painted a vivid picture of the power of such imagination, which when realized, “the fellow members of even the smallest nation will never know most of their fellow members, meet them, or even hear of them, yet in the minds of each lives the image of their communion”.

Why pseudonymity has its merits, it also can stand in the way of forming the sorts of bonds needed in a community that supports each other. We believe that Web3creators can foster a sense of community that is different from the ones that we have seen form on platforms like Twitter or Discord, by telling real and personal stories of the humans behind Web 3.0 projects.

3. Connecting talent with jobs

There is a severe shortage of talent in a space that is so nascent and niche. As an interdisciplinary field covering topics ranging from finance and economics, to political philosophy, and computer science, the pool of qualified talent for DeFi companies shrinks even further. Web3creators.com will be a way to connect talent with jobs in the space.

Who is behind Web3creators.com? 🧑‍

Request supports Web3creators.com through a grant. As a nascent initiative, Request will lend its backing and resources to foster the growth and development of the platform.

This will include supporting the editorial team involved in generating the content to be covered. Running a media platform is no mean feat, and the support of the Request team will be an important catalyst. Leading the editorial work at Web3creators will be Clément Bernard, a French citizen who is a proud father to two toddlers, and the insomnia-addled work that accompanies them. After many years in the sports business, Clément’s career saw him becoming a journalist for Vice and SoFoot, as well as being the founder of a media company, Sans Filtre.

“Our goal is to help people create projects and build careers in Web 3.0. The first step towards this vision is to inspire, motivate and share the lessons learnt from other creators through interviews and case studies”, says Clément.

How can you be involved? 🧑‍🤝‍🧑

Web3creators.com needs you to make great stories with us. We would love to interview interesting companies, founders, and innovators in the DeFi space. If you have a story idea, get in touch with us here.
