[Grant Proposal] : Hop Monthly Financial Reporting

Hey Hop Community,

I am posting this grant request here since there is no interface for such initiatives. I am aware that a grants program was voted in recently, but it seems there is no process available publicly for applications.

Name : Asymmetric Defi

Project : Hop Monthly Financial Reporting

Detailed Description of Project :
Provide Monthly Reports about the State of the Hop DAO. The reports would include : Overview of governance votes, Revenues, Expenses, Treasury Analysis, Competition Analysis, Macro Trends Analysis …

How will your project benefit the Hop Ecosystem?
Inform the community about what’s going on with the DAO and how it is impacted by governance votes and crypto trends & news…
These reports will be the go to for the community to get informed about the state of the DAO similar to how investors look into financial statements to get informed about their equity investments in traditional finance.
Yes many of the figures are already available in dashboards, the goal is to aggregate what already exists, query new information if not available and produce a monthly report that will be shared here on the forum with the community. If you want to know how much the DAO made last month, Hop Emissions, the state of the treasury … you look into the report, no need to go looking into multiple data sources and forum posts.

How much are you requesting for these reports ?
12k USD (Paid in Hop or Stables) for 12 Monthly Reports (1k USD per Monthly Report)
