Figment launches Learn to educate and onboard developers to Web 3 protocols. With Learn, developers gain access to comprehensive practical tutorials developed by Figment and the community to foster the ecosystem’s growth. Tutorials, in the form of guided Pathways, can be completed seamlessly with DataHub which provides easy access to the protocols via our highly available full node infrastructure and suite of middleware. To foster its community, Figment is partnering with foundations to reward developers for building on Web 3 protocols and sharing their knowledge with others. Figment Learn is the Web 3 Knowledge Base.
Many promising Web 3 protocols are getting to market and are looking to introduce more developers to their unique features while fighting for the same market share. But with each new protocol launch, the barrier to entry to Web 3 development increases. Developers looking to leverage the power of blockchain technology first need to learn about decentralized protocols, understand which one is right for their project, and finally master their unique characteristics to start building. It’s an uphill battle for developers who not only need to learn new languages and adopt a new tech stack but also find the right resources that will help them become better Web 3 developers.
Figment Learn aims to solve these problems by guiding developers throughout that process. With Learn, developers can understand which network is right for them and actually interact with the protocol at each step of their learning process. Newcomers are provided with a short curriculum in the form of tutorials which helps them set up their first DApp (decentralized application) via DataHub, even with little to no expertise on a given protocol. As they complete the tutorials, they earn tokens from their selected protocol to help align their interests with the protocol’s.
Figment Learn’s main objective is to build a community of missionaries where developers are not only incentivized to learn but also to share with others. In order to create the most comprehensive Web 3 knowledge base, we reward community members who publish tutorials to accelerate the pace of innovation in Web 3. Tutorial contributors earn protocol tokens for their efforts and grow their status as protocol experts among their peers. With this dual approach, Figment Learn ensures that developers can not only understand the basics of new protocols but also dig deeper into unique use cases that will spark the next wave of mainstream applications. Learn becomes the strongest alignment mechanism between protocols and its developer community who are now incentivized to see the value of the network and its tokens grow.
