How to grant and how to get granted are currently considered as the issues of most Web3 ecosystems and builders that have been always concerned about. We can see many grant DAOs and innovative funding models, such as Dora Grant DAO, model of a grant DAO and other platforms such as like Gitcoin. We are very honored to have DoraHacks partner Steve Ngok to share this topic with us and make a discussion about this topic.
在过去10年中，我们可以看到一个主要趋势是加密货币的崛起。尽管我们会听到不同的声音，但不得不承认加密领域在茁壮成长。它允许黑客、开源开发者和企业家使用加密货币来建立新的，无需信任的基础设施和应用程序。也正因如此，不断有新的热钱涌入这个领域。 但换个角度思考，加密货币是否可以反向资助到非加密货币领域呢？ 在最近的 BNB Grant DAO 社区融资回合中，仅前沿技术这个赛道，DoraHacks就至少为 5个以上，致力于为在开源量子软件、太空技术等领域进行研究的团队提供了支持。这是Dora社区首次使用加密货币为非加密货币领域的构建者提供资金。我们能否把它变成一项长期的努力，以便支持更多有意义的项目呢？ 带着这一系列的问题，一起来听Eric聊聊。

Since November 2021, the total market value of digital assets in the Crypto space has plummeted from an all-time high of $3 trillion to about $1.27 trillion today, a loss rate of more than 55%. While this massive currency slide can be attributed to a number of factors, including the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and the impact of increasingly hawkish fed rhetoric on bitcoin price volatility, rising inflation data and worsening macroeconomic conditions have had a significant impact on the crypto working environment. With the price of bitcoin, Ethereum and other mainstream coins falling all the way in the past half-year, the familiar problem of "the cry Wolf" has come to the moment that must be deeply discussed. For the DAOrayaki community, we are more concerned about how to survive as a BUILder in the crypto field in the current market mood. We all know the famous crypto primitive "Be a BUIDLer or Holder," but the question is, HOW? To that end, we invited Steve, partner of the Dora community, to talk more about what it takes to be a real BUIDLer, even in a bear market.

从 2021 年11 月以来，加密领域数字资产总市值已从 3 万亿美元的历史高位暴跌至目前的约 1.27 万亿美元，损失率超过 55%。虽然这种大规模的货币下滑可归结为一系列的因素，包括正在进行的俄乌战争，美联储日益强硬的言论对比特币价格波动的影响等，但通胀数据的上升和宏观经济状况的持续恶化，一定是对加密货币的市场环境产生的最为直接的重大影响。 近半年随着比特币、以太坊等主流币价的一路走跌，那个令人熟悉的关于“狼来了”的论调，又到了必须要深入探讨的时刻。对 DAOrayaki 社区而言，我们则更关注在现有市场情绪下，作为一个加密领域的 BUIDLer ，如何才能够更好的生存下来。我们都知道加密圈那句著名的原语 “Be a BUIDLer or a HODLer“，但问题是 How？为此我们特别邀请 Dora 的合伙人 Steve，一起深入地谈一谈，如何在一个不确定的艰难市场环境中做一个真正的 BUIDLer。
One major trend we have seen over the past 10 years is the rise of crypto. Despite being often "Disparaged" by some powerful elders, crypto continues to going stronger. The design space for crypto is large enough which at least support innovation on the same scale as the Internet. It’s allowing hackers, open source developers, and entrepreneurs to use crypto to build new, trustless infrastructure and applications. It is precisely because of this that new hot money is constantly entering this field. However, the large-scale development of the entire crypto ecosystem has also fully exposed the issues of privacy and collusion. In the past two years, issues such as "sybil attack", "authentication", privacy and collusion in decentralized governance have been frequently mentioned. How to solve these problems in the existing builder ecosystem, and how to use constantly emerging technologies like ZKP? With this series of questions, we specially invited Mr. Eric, the Founder of DoraHacks. from the perspective of a senior builder, to systematically and in-depth talk about governance, funding, and the future.
The concept of NFT can be traced back to the elaboration of encrypted trading cards proposed by Hal Finney in 1993. During the long period of time when this concept was proposed, due to technical reasons, it has not been implemented. Until 2017, the world's first NFT project, CryptoPunks, was released on Ethereum, marking that NFT has entered a stage of rapid growth and construction. The main differences between NFTs and FTs are focusing on their non-interchangeability, inseparability, and uniqueness. Relying on these features generated by blockchain technology, the uniqueness, authenticity and permanence of NFT link assets are guaranteed, thus effectively solving the problem of right confirmation of virtual items. As of December 17, 2021, the cumulative turnover of NFT projects has exceeded 10 billion US dollars. However, the good times are not long. By 2022, as of last month, the NFT field has only attracted about billions of US dollars of funds. The most notable change is that today, if NFT projects want to build a community of loyal believers in their vision, the previous story of only “collectible attributes” no longer plays a real role. They need more creativity to bring innovation to a market already saturated in some ways with mediocrity. The question is, in addition to paying attention to the collection value of NFT, what value depressions of NFT will be tapped in the future? Can the coordinated development of NFT, DAO, and Web3 find the best combination? With these thoughts in mind, we specially invited Stephen from Metopia to talk about the future development of NFT.
