Problem Statement:

In our rapidly evolving world, the rich tapestry of ancestral stories and languages is at risk of fading away. Authenticity is paramount, but identifying and obtaining original texts, films, and recordings presents significant challenges. Accessing remote regions and communities is logistically complex, and standardizing preservation methods remains a pressing concern.


Samhita DAO leverages a potent toolkit comprising Solidity for smart contracts, ReactJS for seamless front-end experiences, Python and JavaScript for versatile scripting, and Postman for rigorous API testing. Remix and Visual Studio serve as indispensable IDEs, streamlining development. We’re introducing a user-friendly feature for easy content input and also offering an API for accessing preserved language data.

Scope of the solution:

Seamless Content Input: Introducing a user-friendly feature for easy content submission.

API Access: Offering an API for streamlined access to preserved language data.
Community Involvement: Engaging global volunteers in fieldwork for comprehensive language conservation.

Governance and Sustainability: Implementing decentralized governance for a robust and inclusive LanguageDAO ecosystem.

NFT Rewards Program: Recognizing and honoring Language DAO contributors and creators with NFTs.

Enhanced Delegation: Providing user-friendly features and analytics for Delegators, ensuring trust and transparency.

Challenges Faced:

In the journey of developing SamhitaDAO, we encountered a range of challenges, both technical and business-related. On the technical front, creating the API and building a robust delegation functionality into governance was a challenge.

From a business perspective, establishing a sustainable monetization model presented its own set of hurdles. We needed to strike a delicate balance between providing valuable services for language preservation and generating revenue to ensure long-term viability.

Accomplishments we’re proud of:

Our proudest accomplishment lies in achieving a seamless and automated decentralization through delegation in governance. This milestone marks a significant stride towards our vision of an autonomous and community-driven platform. By empowering users to have a direct say in decision-making, we’ve fostered a truly democratic ecosystem.

Hello Samhita Dao.
Welcome to Tron Hackathon session 5.
Once again congratulations on your previous 3rd place win in the NFT track.

Good to have you in the builder’s track. Trust you ready for the heat?.


  1. Where you able to touch or complete the milestone you set for last session aside from mainnet?
    If yes, I little summary will help.
    Welcome back.

  2. Check from previous contract address, seems there had been no transaction or usage?

Correct if I’m wrong

  1. From inception till date,
    Reading from

Do they have any partnerships with other organizations working to preserve endangered languages?
It could be schools, or others.

  1. What is marketing plan for reaching endangered language communities?


Welcome back, as @Gordian asked…. Give us updates on your previous submissions aside going on MainNet, any additional progress?

Where you able to build a community for your project?

How did your project contribute to the building or improvement of tron and/or the bttc ecosystem?

Why do you think you need an additional funds for your project if you were part of last winners and received funds?


additional one is about marketing, how do you plan that, what are your social media platforms?

Haven’t seen any marketing about your previous submissions


Very good question. In addition,

  • What would be the major decisions makers about your tokenomics?

Ha :laughing:
This is both fascinating and interesting at the same time to read, as a linguist and an IELTS tutor myself. Lest I forget before getting caught up in the mix, welcome to Season 5 and goodluck on your journey as hackathon progresses.
I see this project is focused on empowering endangered language communities to preserve their linguistic heritage by providing a user-friendly platform for content input and offers an API for accessing preserved language data, and employs tokenomics and NFT rewards to incentivize contributors.

I have just two questions bordering around the project description;
How does the project plan to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the language data preserved on the blockchain?

Could you provide more information about the LanguageDAO API subscription? How will developers integrate it into their applications


@Samhita DAO. Thanks for bringing up such a nice project but I have some questions.

                             Q1                                                      What are the specific endangered languages that the project will focus on,and how will the project ensure the accuracy and quality of the data it collects.                               
                                 Q2                                              How will the project make the data accessible to the communities that need it,and how will it mitigate the risks of censorship and data breaches.
                                   Q3                                             How will the project ensure that the benefits of the project are shared equitably among all stakeholders,and also how will the project be funded and sustained over the long term.

Hello @Gordian , Thank you so much for the warm welcome, and I’m thrilled to be back for Tron Hackathon season 5. Your kind wishes mean a lot to us.

I’m thrilled to share that we’ve successfully achieved all the milestones set in Season 4:

  1. Language DAO Creation: We’ve implemented a user-friendly process, enabling ordinary users to effortlessly create their own language DAOs in just a few steps. While in the backend, the user is deploying their own language DAO on the mainnet and also minting the tokens for that DAO.

  2. DAO Governance: The implementation of DAO governance has been a success. We’ve created and thoroughly tested the necessary contracts. In this upcoming season, we’re dedicated to further improving our governance mechanisms.

  3. Template Creation: We’ve enabled language DAOs to utilise templates sourced from the Samhita DAO, ensuring uniformity among language datasets. These templates are minted as NFTs and generate royalties when used by other DAOs, and this system is functioning smoothly.

  4. Functionality Testing: We’ve rigorously tested all aspects of the platform’s functionality to ensure its reliability.

While it’s true that we currently don’t have active users, our presence in the TRON community is aimed at gathering valuable feedback as we continue to develop the platform. We firmly believe that this project is a collective effort that can significantly contribute to the preservation of languages and cultures. We encourage everyone to share their thoughts and suggestions, helping us enhance the platform. If you have specific functionalities in mind that could improve the user experience, we’re open to exploring their implementation. Our overarching goal is to provide a seamless user experience while safeguarding our invaluable human assets.

Regarding your third question, We got some feedback while trying to connect with organisations that it would be easy for them to join the platform if the UI and templates provided to them were easy. As a result, we are dedicated to enhancing our platform to ensure that new users can effortlessly engage with it.

In terms of marketing, it can be digital marketing as well as partnering with organisations that are working in the same field. However, our primary focus has been on refining and enhancing our platform before delving deeper into our marketing initiatives.

I believe I’ve addressed all your questions comprehensively. Your inquiries are immensely valuable to us, and we genuinely appreciate your engagement. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with more questions or suggestions. We’ll be sure to inform you when our platform goes live and invite you to test it. I understand that my response to your questions has been delayed due to a hectic schedule over the past few days.


Hello @Prince-Onscolo,

I’d like to address your points. It’s true that, to the best of my knowledge, there aren’t any prominent DAOs on the TRON network with a large user base. The same can be said for DeFi projects on TRON, which tend to have fewer users compared to other blockchains like Ethereum.

As for how our project benefits the TRON ecosystem, it’s worth noting that this particular type of DAO is rather unique and not readily available on other blockchains. When we deploy all the associated contracts on TRON, it essentially brings language collections onto the TRON blockchain, thereby adding intrinsic value to the network. If the TRON community rallies behind our initiative and actively contributes to the preservation of languages, it could potentially attract users who might not have previously used TRON but are passionate about preserving languages and culture. In essence, this endeavor is poised to bolster the TRON ecosystem by expanding its user base and providing valuable benefits to users.

In response to your last question, yes, we were the winners of the previous season and received funds. However, building a fully functional and ready-to-use project entails a significant commitment of resources and time. This includes development efforts and marketing initiatives. Additionally, having a dedicated team is essential. Furthermore, by engaging with the TRON community, we aim to attract more users to test our platform, making it an ideal choice for our project.

Thank you for your questions, and please feel free to reach out if you have any more questions and have suggestions for this project.


thank you so much, I really hope you will market this project to reach the masses. All the best


Love the name!

Seems like the community is already asking all the tough questions. :crazy_face::upside_down_face:

In that case I’ll only wish you the best!


I like the goal, do you have any certain/ specific language in mind to start the project? Like a prototype version? or what exactly is an endangered language for you? Would be happy if you could answer :))


Welcome Samhita DAO to season 5.
Language preservation is very crucial as your language determines your identity.

Sadly most language are on the verge of extinction and some have also evolved to a point where the original meaning of some words or terms are lost.

This begs the question, how sure are you that the languages provided on your platform will be very accurate and not a language in a distorted fashion that is far from the right meaning.

Please add them to your project. Thank you!


Hello team, are you still building or you have abandoned ship. The silence here makes me wonder if the team is still working behind the scenes.

Kindly be active and update us every now and then. Thank you and wishing you All the best.


Thank you for your questions.

Ensuring the accuracy of language data on the blockchain involves a community-driven process. Members use tools like Data Craft and Data Scrape to create datasets, which are then subject to community approval. This approach places responsibility on users to validate data before permanent storage, fostering reliability.

For LanguageDAO API integration, we’ve prioritized simplicity. Our platform provides an intuitive interface showcasing available APIs, allowing users to test them directly. Developers receive well-documented code snippets for seamless integration, ensuring a smooth and efficient process for incorporating LanguageDAO’s API into their applications. The UI for the API list page is designed for easy exploration and implementation.


Thank you for your support!

For our initial project phase and prototype, we aim to collaborate with language communities that face the risk of losing their cultural and linguistic heritage. While we don’t have a specific language in mind, we are open to working with communities globally.

An endangered language, in our context, refers to a language at risk of becoming extinct or falling out of use. This risk can be due to factors such as declining numbers of native speakers, the absence of written documentation, or insufficient preservation efforts. Our goal is to prioritize languages facing these challenges and provide a platform that empowers communities to preserve and share their linguistic richness. The prototype will serve as a versatile model, adaptable to the unique needs of different endangered language communities.


Hello! Absolutely, We’re still actively building. Apologies for the delays in replies. We appreciate your concern and want to assure you that we’ll be active. Thanks for your understanding and support!
