Grant Title: Core Contributor - Copywriter



About You:

I hereby apply for a grant to start working as a copywriter for CoW Protocol. I have been involved in Web3 since early 2020 and ever since continued to contribute to various DAOs (CoW Protocol and Cryptotesters) by creating content for example, articles and FAQs. I am an active member of CowDAO since November 2021 and have been on the GrantsDAO committee since mid-2022. I have supported CoW DAO by moderating the discord, promoting CoW protocol and producing written content for cowswap.

Grant Category:

Community growth

Grant Description:

I would like to continue contributing to the growth of CoW Protocol by providing copywriting services to Cow Protocol for the period of April 22’ to June 23’. In my opinion, CoW Protocol requires regular content to engage the community and inform others about the benefits of CoW Swap. The content that I will be working on will include but not be limited to articles, blog posts, and FAQs. One idea could be to produce 4-7 blog posts/articles per month according to a schedule set out by the marketing team. The blog posts/articles will be used to promote Cow Protocol and enable more novice users to gain a better understanding of how CoW Protocol works under the hood and why everyone should be using them for their trades!

This will have a lasting impact on CoW DAO as this will enable the marketing team to easily link topics to new users and have a constant flow of fresh content to release and promote our product. The content that I will be working on will assist the marketing team in drawing more users to CoW Protocol. The articles can be used by the community in the future to guide new users to further read about how great CoW Protocol is. The articles/blog posts will be monitored by CoW Protocols marketing team to ensure high-quality content.


During my previous grant, I have achieved to produce the following articles which are reviewed and ready to be published.

  • Why are solvers important to how CoW Protocol works?
  • What is a Meta-DEX and why you should use it for all your trades
  • Why cow protocol is the best choice for DAOs & Multisigs
  • How do CoW Protocol fees work?
  • Why is CoW Swap so good for trading new (low-liquidity) tokens?
  • What is price improvement and why is it unique to CoW Protocol?
  • What is CoW Protocol? The ultimate guide to COW
  • One Block, One Batch: Examining the potential of frequent batch auctions in Ethereum
  • Towards Fairer DEXs on Ethereum
  • Exploring the concept of MEV capturing AMMs

In the proposed grant I would like to start working on the following articles:

  • Why do solvers produce better outcomes for users?
  • How do DAOs use CoW Protocol for Treasury Management?
  • Why are Solvers Important to CoW Protocol’s Trading Mechanism?
  • Overview of grants approved since the inception of the GrantsDAO.
  • How is CoW Swap able to offer lower fees thanks to order flow auctions?

And many more, awaiting approval from the team.

I support this proposal for an additional 3 months. I think some metrics around the types of content is worth looking into, e.g. Long-Form or Short-Form content. Additionally, A/B testing will identify what provides the most ROI, helping to inform future content production.

Supporting this proposal. I agree with Netrunner, would like to see some metrics as well about the previous grant produced content.


Thanks for you reply @netrunner.eth @Chim9.

In terms of the format of the content it is usually around 1000 words, long format to discuss more complex topics. The content is set by the CoW Protocol marketing team on a monthly basis hence they monitor the KPIs of each article.

Just to provide a little more clarity on the workflow. The articles are reviewed and approved by the CoW DAO team and then scheduled to be published.

Given that the team is happy with the content produced so far I believe these are sufficient ground for a grant renewal.
