Should the following Tier 5: up to $120,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Community category be approved?
This paper examines the role of MultiNFT as a major contributor for the Decentraland ecosystem and community as part of its first step to apply for a grant. At this time, high traffic on the platform is derived from either play to earn gamified scenes or specific music events. Those very music events are a focal point for proving the merit of the metaverse itself and is our central focus here at MultiNFT as we will demonstrate below.
Launched in 2018, MultiNFT is one of the founding members of the Metaverse revolution. With an extensive network of connections and expertise in the real-world music industry, MultiNFT delivers the best events the metaverse has to offer and provides a familiar environment for communities to grow in.
Over the past year alone, MultiNFT has produced and delivered a medley of top visited events in the Decentraland metaverse and broke the marketplace charts several times with its wearables. Some notable mentions from the past 12 months:
The Metaverse Music Festival Techno Stages years 2021 & 2022.
Every Single Friday DJ Night at the RAGE club (which passed DAO’s point of interest proposal: Snapshot)
The giving away of over 1,500 Items (Including Wearables & Skins)
Multiple wearable launches for the community, some of which went on to 1st place on the marketplace top trending items and creators
Various multi-metaverse events crossing Decentraland with Spatial, Stageverse, Somnium Space
Branded events with DAZ3D, Desperate Ape Wives, Katatonik, CGC, CoinPoint, Holy Ones Grand Opening Pre & After Parties to name a few community collaborations, parties and events: Bverse, Diverge, Babydolls, Wisher etc. (*These are mentions of who we worked with in the past and unrelated to the current grant).
16,662 unique users passed through the RAGE club since its started its operations.
- Our events attract a significant amount of “web2” users that still havent been converted to web3. By using the guest login function we easily plant the seed for such users to adopt the underlying wallet technology and join the frontier.
With the funds from this grant, MultiNFT will continue to:
Deliver at least three weekly recurring events at the RAGE Club and other parcels which are currently under development to be disclosed Q1 23
Deliver A Quarterly Conference/Festival under the name Awake The Future Festival (Ticketed conference during the day and music festival with 5 stages for 3 hrs on each stage)
Improvement of the existing Dancing UI sequencer contest and activities/quests surrounding Emotes
Provide weekly wearables giveaways to both newcomers and existing community
Rock & Metal Music Festival featuring some of the biggest names in the Metal and Progressive Rock industry
Weekly POAP distributions with our PARTY TO EARN secret roadmap
Continue to serve as a booking agency for web3 events in Decentraland in 2023
|Name / When
|Rock & Metal
|Techno + Rage
|Techno + Rage
|TOP AAA DJ
|MetaParty, HolyOnes (for example)
As can be seen above, our expenses plan exceeds the amount requested in this grant, however MultiNFT is currently also undergoing a Series A funding round, part of which will be used for said expenses. (MultiNFT has gone through a seed round of $0.5M led by Panda Capital HK - crunchbase).

With the help of this grant we will surely be able to garner the next level of events and activities with artists of the biggest status in their respective genres, with the largest existing crowds which we will inevitably invite into Decentraland.
