Current Tech Stack

  • Backend: Solidity, Rust (NEAR), PyTeal (Algorand)
  • APIs: Twitter API (Minting Tweets), FIrebase Auth (Save you Collection Progress), Stripe & Paypal for Fiat/Crypto Payments). The Graph for Indexing Contracts, Firebase DB for Algorand Collection, Hassura for NEAR Collection Indexing
  • Front End: ReactJS
  • Hosting: Vercel

Why Push

We enable collectors, artists, and content creators to create, collect, and monetize a variety of content across 7+ blockchains. However, being a permissionless and open-source application, we lack direct notifications and messaging between creators and consumers that the Push protocol can enable through its Web3 infrastructure. With PUSH, we will:

  • Allow subscribers to content creators to get notified
  • Allow content creators to streamline messaging
  • Notify subscribers of specific on-chain interactions, such as when a piece of art from a collection is sold, when a favorite artist mints and publishes a new piece, or when a piece on the marketplace is sold at a certain price
  • Provide overall market updates, allowing creators to view the marketplace as a whole and see every purchase on Polygon
  • Allow consumers to engage directly and privately with creators, receive updates on upcoming drops, and engage in non-on-chain interactions
  • Enable messaging from non-EVM chains through the Polygon UI/UX onboarding flow and allow wallet-to-wallet messaging on supported chains such as Celo, Avalanche, Aurora, Arbitrum, and Optimism through the Polygon enabled wallet-to-wallet messaging (with one-click switch to the Polygon network for gasless messaging onboarding).

Outside of direct integration, we want to help expand the Push protocol to other EVM protocols. See our past governance post here Helping β€œPUSH” the PUSH Ecosystem (BD, Integrations, Developer Outreach)

Well written! Looks like you have a functioning product that can use PUSH already which is huge. Maybe this could be fast tracked through the new grant system?

Hey @minority, this is a strong proposal, good to see that the focus here is on the many integrations you plan on having with Push.

I would like to see usage metrics (active addresses, NFT collections minted, etc) for your product, and how many of these users will potentially be onboarded to the PUSH ecosystem.

There is also a newer Push Grants Process, hopefully, you have had a chance to go through it, if not I’m sure @Jaf could provide some assistance here.

Yes, had a great call with Jaf and also submitted to form, but wanted to put on here for transparency as well, We are developing a dashboard but dAppRadar has rankings, right now top 100 marketplaces GenaDrop | DappRadar. We also just pushed AI minting beta

Thank you so much for putting the proposal for discussion here as well.
I agree with @SixtyKeys - this proposal is really great. Thanks for proving so much information.

Would be great to elaborate more on the value proposition for Push. Its preferable if you can add quantifiable goals that we can use to measure the success and completion of each milestone.

Numbers that are meaningful for Push for a platform like this:

  • Number of Users & Active User
  • Number of Notifications per user
  • Recurrence of the notifications to users based on usage

In case you don’t yet have too much traction, it would also be important to add details about your user acquisition strategy and attach them as goals on each milestone.

The breakdown you include here (which is great btw) is very technical and is more aligned to a technical roadmap, however its not easy to quantify the impact for Push in terms of users using your product and using Push Notifs & chat.


Would be great to have you join us during Office hours to demo GenaDrop to our community.

Live metrics on dAppradar here GenaDrop | DappRadar (Algorand stats not on here)

:star: We have a few avenues to expand traction this bear market

  • New Minting Features (AI Art Generation, ChatGPT Assisted Publications, Web2Minting via Twitter, SoulBound NFTs (Badges), Location Based Mints (ProofOfMap)
  • Onboarding More Open Source Contributors (Over 13 Contributors Already), also expanding Product team focused on each feature & blockchain through university recruits
  • Partnering with Organizations to Build Use Cases (Lens Protocol, Proof of Vibes, BluntDAO, Education Platforms, NFt Clubs, HER DAO + Charity Initiatives)
  • Adding Additional Chains with Traction (Arbitrum, Shardeeum {no nft marketplace and huge traction on India for testnet})
  • Events: EthDenver Hacker House, Touring Developing Nations

:star: User Goals

  • By the end of 2023 we are looking for 30,000 NFTs minted, many automated through twitter and AI generated once we publicize at the end of Q1. Mostly expecting through Shardeum testnet, Polygon Mainnet, and Avalanche mainnet.
  • We are looking for 1000 unique creators by the end of 2023, particularly through 1 of 1 artists, AI artists, bloggers, photographers, and educators (certificates).

:star: Number of Notifications Per Users:

  • This depends on how many creators they subscribe to, whether it would be for the marketplace for which chain, or for messages. We expect the most used PUSH features to be messaging and subscribing to individual creators. We are expecting 15 messages a week per user between creator and 30 notifications per month for each creator subscribed to given mint and sales. We expect users to subscribe to 2-3 creators on average

Hi @minority ,

After another review round with the Push Committee, we still believe is important we attach quantifiable goals to milestones.

To really measure the ROI for Push, the goals should be in terms of user adoption and notifications being sent. The goals described above reflect ideas to increase awareness and adoption however we cannot extract from them how many users will really be exposed to receiving notifications and/or chats via Push Protocol.

In order to move forward, we’d like to ask you to provide goals in the form of:

Milestone 1
StartDate|EndDate|Duration

  • List all use cases that will be available for Push notifs/chat
  • Define a number of users that you will bring into your platform to consider the Milestone complete
  • Provide an estimation of how many notifications each of these users will receive in X timeframe (weeks, monthly)

Milestone 2
{Assuming implementation of PUSH is complete}

  • Add new use cases and list them A,B,C
  • Explain the impact of the new use cases or modification to previous ones.
  • Increase users to XXX

Considering your project is still in the making we understand there will be uncertainty of some of the goals, but for us is important to observe a clear path on how you are going to make them happen.

:running_man:t3:Milestone 1 (UI + Front End + Push Integration)

:spiral_calendar: Start Date: February 1, 2023 | End Date March 31, 2022 | Duration: 2 months

:muscle:t4:Use Cases

  • A) Subscribe button available on profile (Subscribing to NFT updates made by creators)
  • B) Subscribe to updates for the overall marketplace - new nfts minted, listed and sold)
  • C) Subscribe for individual NFT updates
  • D) Subscribe for entire collection
  • E) Subscribe for genadrop newsletter (to get a curated information from site admins)
  • F) Dashboard to send newsletter to groups + individuals (ability for creators to send messaging out in a no code way) that have subscribed
  • Users can now get updated for the marketplace, their favorite collections + nfts, creators, and received short messaging from GenaDrop and artists.

:bell: Users + Notifications

  • Number of New Users to Beta Push Integration 100 (Still Integrating - Without Official marketing Push)
  • Number of notifications per user initially 15-30 average 20 = 2000 Notifications at 100 new users

:running_man:t3:Milestone 2 (Wallet to Wallet Messaging + Product Launch)

:spiral_calendar: Start Date: April 1st, 2023 | End Date May 15th | Duration: 45 Days

:muscle:t4:Use Cases

  • A) IPFS enabled Newsletter (enabling longer form content)
  • B) (Gasless) Ability to send & read messages ordering of messages by recent chat (collectors can talk about curations, collectors can negotiate directly with creators, creators can collaborate on work)
  • Impact: the following use cases allows for longer and targeted content, rather than just updates (the milestone before.) This enables more in depth content and collaboration between all stakeholders. Currently an artist or collector needs to link their social media accounts and that conversation has to happen in a Web2 (if they have connected socials) in order to facilitate curation, sales, and collaboration. We have no way to quantify the impact of this. With this feature we can gauge interest, and artists directly on the platform can do targeted marketing campaigns.

:bell: Users + Notifications

  • Increase users to 500 = Additional average of 10,000 notifications

After talking to the PUSH team we have refined our approach to a reduced amount consisting of 2 Milestones. A milestone to be defined below ($5,000 total) with an half upfront amount to start integration with the second half being rewarded based on user acquisition and PUSH adoption . And a second milestone to be defined based on performance of milestone 1 for a more refined adoption strategy.

:running_man:t3:Milestone 1:

  • We’d like to start with a rapid grant of $2,500 for implementation as outlined above

  • Follow with a tentative user base of 75 users receiving an average of 10 notifications a month (750 notifications to get started) to complete the first milestone and release the second tranche of $2.5k

We look forward to working with PUSH on the marketing efforts to help increase user adoption, boost notifications, and cross promote each other’s communities in a mutually beneficial manner.
