[DAO:38e6e16] A continuum of Entertainment & Education for Women & Minorities (1 year)

Thanks Chris for the info you provided today. I wish I knew this yesterday.

Over the years I have had the privilege to speak and work with some extremely talented women working within Decentraland. I do get that women innovators do experience legitimate struggles with gender bias both in Decentraland and in life; especially prevalent in the tech field, as it is an extremely male dominated space.

However, I believe honesty is relationships is just as important as diversity.

Having said that, the experience that Metatrekkers described above working with @serenaelis is very alarming to me in a couple of ways.

First, it seems that she felt it perfectly acceptable to agree to a payment for her services, then request to being paid in advance for her services via an off-chain payment method, and then after receiving the payment, proceeded to lie about not being paid in multiple public forums including Twitter, then further went on an extensive a smear campaign in attempt to defame and discredit Chris from Metatrekkers, which ultimately was the catalyst that lead to his grant revocation; which to my knowledge, has not been restored. She did this it seems, because after the fact, it seems she believed $100 cash, paid in advance for 30min of services provided, was simply not enough, despite agreeing to this in advance; and that she should be entitled to more.

Second, @Serenaelis then seem to make this dispute about gender, by taking to Twitter to warned other women to steer clear of any relationship with Metatrekkers!?

Has she ever presented any evidence that Metatrekkers paid the women DJs less than the male DJs? If not, if there was a legitimate dispute at all, it certainly was not gender related. So, if that is the case why did she take to twitter and warn only women?

In my opinion, gender bias is a pretty serious offense, and for Serenaelis to so much as insinuate in her Tweet, that Chris from Metatrekkers, without evidence, somehow engaged in some sort of gender bias seem very extreme, not to mention potentially very detrimental to his reputation.

So, the real question is: What if Metatrekkers did not have proof of payment and the text correspondence with Serenaelis to prove his innocence? My guess is that Chris would probably would be forever black listed from the community from receiving any further grants, and would likely find it difficult or impossible to gain additional support in Decentraland.

@Serenaelis If the information provided by Chris is accurate, could I ask why you haven’t taken the time to publicly apologize to Chris, via Twitter, Discord, and any other medium you used, in order to help repair any damage to his reputation? I also think it appropriate that you issue an apology to all the women of Decentraland for misleading them in this instance, but that’s just my opinion.

So, while I do hope the very talented, dedicated, and honest hard-working women building in Decentraland (and they know who they are) don’t take this the wrong way, I feel unfortunately, based on these current revelations, that I must rescind my support for this grant at this time, and I do wish @serenaelis the best of luck in the future.

However, @serenaelis if you in any way disagree with my interpretation of the information that Chris has provided, I would certainly be very open to hear your clarification of these events.


Dude this is so off the mark… xD

You and MT are misrepresenting Serena’s position and have not presented any evidence to justify MT’s harassment of Serena across platforms/channels and your attempt to bully her with this BS.

Serena already said MT paid her, and that photo was in the post claiming she lied about MT.

You need to actually put effort into getting a full understanding of a situation before being disrespectful to others.

That’s why I read all available documentation about District X and land sales before calling you a fraud.


I agree on this. Its also the past we all did things we can potentially regret will we say no to this just because of this situation? Grant can always be revoked if she do not deliver.

Hi rob.

First off i am extremely beyond upset right now. I am really going to try to do this without being emotionally charged, or negatively towards yours and @MetaTrekkers opinion.

When it comes to honestly, its means being real. being authentic. I have always spoke my mind. And its clear that i spoke my mind too much by expressing my valid concerns and feelings when tweeting. We seevthis everyday on twitter, thats not an excuse… During that time, I felt, its was the right thing to do. Maybe I was wrong. I am human I have intense emotions, and I have my own set of opinions like everyone else. I took it to twitter. I should have taken that to my diary, i suppose. I felt responsible as an extremely active community member for 3 whole years. Iv been grinding away, day and night on this platform believing in its potential. putting my heart, mind, spirit in soul into this. And being selfless in the process by helping others whenever i can. That fact that I thought i was trying to do the right things for everyone and its being looked at negatively really is disheartening in so many ways. i thought i was protecting the community. I would never ever say something that doesn’t align to good ethics and values. I wouldn’t be here for this long putting in this much effort if I didn’t care.
Going try and address what you have covered here.
There was a-lot of confusion in the BT competition, idk if that was from a lack of communication and transparency , but I was under the impression that i would have the same amount like everyone else. There was so much confusion, maybe it was on my part ? But it seems like i wasn’t the only one who has felt confused by the project. I am a pretty straight forward person, pretty direct, so it can be hard if someone that doesn’t communicate the same, and it can be challenging to understand. Everyone has very different communication styles and sometimes things dont always mesh.

I felt scammed, yes I did. I have had the chance to work with numerous brands in web 3 and collaborate, the Beattreakkers project was one of my only projects I have had an issue, confusion, and felt a level that felt misleading. This may not be the case for everyone else. And thats okey. Everyone has a different experience. I was also asked if I wanted to buy a NFT from his project, that was $200. Why some got it for free … i am not sure, to me this made me uncomfortable. As for female Djs" I am one of the very few active djs. theres not many of us here. I have a pretty heightened level of intuition, i didn’t feel good. and i was trusting in that.
I tried to address these issues in the discord and that didn’t end well either. I wanted to see how we can find solutions to make things right, i was talked to negatively, and it didn’t end well. I have a pretty strong mind and composer at most times, but this whole negative around the DAO and then the project, and now this, deff will effect my mental health. i am a healthy person, and I work hard hard for everything I do, I already ended up at the hospital from the level of stress this continues to bring. Idk if this goal of this platform is to try and break people.
i already feel crushed by changing your vote. I will apologize to chris. Sorry and will personally after this. I should have taken my real concerns outside of the internet. I still have my opinions. But idk if they should be shared for the public. i think My opinions are still valid in a way and it wouldn’t be good if I was lying to myself about how I truly really felt.
This is my life and my passions, Most of these concerns here, is to get people to not trust me ?
i am not sure how much more i have to give, and deliver, on time, to make this possible so 100% of the community likes me. Chris may have some strong feelings against me for standing up the way I did, I consider it brave. For speaking ones mind with artwork. And I am sorry if it hurt you.
I don’t want to even want to hurt and ant on the street, things got intensified and seem to blow up in web 3 . It’s been like this the past 6 months.

I wish this platform to be a safe place, and sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. i will say it again, I thought i was doing the right thing and protecting a community I feel so passionate about. I quit my job for this. I thought this was the level of dedication I needed in order to be successful.

I don’t know what else to say but i am Sorry.

Right now, Everything right now being brought up is the past. Although as a spiritual person, I don’t think It’s always the best to judge someone based on what they did and in the current moment this Proposal is about now and the future. Thats for everyone as well. You forgive, let go, and move on, If i continue to hold a grude in this space, my insides will rot.

and chris to you @MetaTrekkers . You may have had backlash, yes. I still don’t think anyone deserves to be attacked. Maybe your project, has some red flags. People can learn from their mistakes. I don’t believe you cant try and make it new and start fresh. i was trying to say that in the discord, but idk if that was the right moment as you still seemed really upset.
I had a feeling you would go after me after i put this proposal up, i guess my intuition is pretty strong. I don’t think it’s right what you are doing. Your not just saying no to me, your saying no to others who i am also trying to help, and this community. And trying to make me look bad. I am learning to come to a place in my life to try and understand others, and not judge them for how they act, even if i don’t agree.

Iv pretty much have given so much, if this is really doesn’t get passed, i will have to rethink where things are heading for me. Theres only so much I can give as a person. I care about my mental health too. I don’t need a project and me having to defend myself to bring me towards a deep end. All i wanted in DCL was for it to be great and still want what is best.

I don’t know if I was able to cover everything mentioned. In the end what ever is ment for me will happen. I believe in God and my faith. I will not push and persuade anyone in a direction, its not really in my nature. I truly hope you can really think this one through, and look at the project throughly.

Right now, i am going to take a few days off from the internet. I will try and get back and answer with more clarity or more concerns. With more of a calm mind.

Best Regards



@serenaelis I appreciate your reply. It does seem from your response like thinks were a been a bit more complicated at the time than they seem now. I do respect and appreciate that you took the time to acknowledged that the way you had handled things with Chris could have been better, and that you in fact felt it appropriate to publicly apologize. It does seem that perhaps maybe some communications you had at the time with Chris may have been misconstrued, which then may have lead to some the overall feeling of confusion you experienced. Again, I don’t know all the details, and that isn’t really that important. What is important is that when mistakes are made, that people are big enough to recognize that they occurred, learn from them, and then try their best to take the appropriate actions to attempt to reconcile with the people that were harmed.

Seems the grant Chris had was revoked, and your accusation against him played some significant role in it. Despite you clarifying that your initial allegations were made under false pretense, the GSS has not been willing to reinstated his grant. Moreover, the GSS, it seems, has refused to provide Chris or the community with any clearly defined violation that would warrant such an extreme action; and this should be very concerning for anyone receiving grant funding.

In any case, I’m glad you replied to clarify your position. Now I’m not sure how Chris feels about it, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m satisfied with your explanation, and having since spoken with others about your past positive contributions to Decentraland, they absolutely assure me that you are very likely to bring a great deal of value back Decentraland if should you get your grant approved.

That said, I am happy to support your grant and your cause to empower women and minority communities within Decentraland. Good Luck!


That isn’t what she said.

@serenaelis , if your apology is sincere and you promise to refrain from causing any further issues with me, including after the grant proposal has been approved and funds have been obtained, I am willing to forgive and forget.

While I have reservations about you, I do acknowledge the merits of your proposal and believe that everyone deserves a chance to redeem themselves.

I hope that all the women and minorities involved in this project excel and achieve great success.

Based on your willingness to acknowledge your mistakes and that you are making an attempt to try and fix them, which I do appreciate,

I will be changing my vote to ‘yes’.


hi rob,

First off, I really appreciate you taking the time to read my response. This means a-lot to me and to this project.
This is going way back since august. About 7 Months ago. i do take ownership of my communication with social media and how i can be better at communication. It’s a valuable lesson for me.
As far as revoked, theres been a slew of accusations in the discord, thats still going on to this day. This is a small portion and i will take responsibility for my part. Just a little perplex how i am responsible for all this … This seems to be a continuous discussion that continues to keep dragging within members in the community. I summited a ticket regarding his behavior towards me a long time ago and i am doing my best to move past it after the last couple of months. I don’t talk to GG Squad personally in that level or even have them in communication on socials like twitter or IG.
I hope we can come to a level of communication and resolution via discord, group chat about this, or maybe on his grant forum. This conversation can go days or even weeks maybe months. We are coming up to a year in 5 months.
also it might be off track from the actual proposal goal, and what we are trying to do for others.
I do think it’s important all this gets clarified in the appropriate channel and we can find a solution. So we all come to an agreement and understanding. I have not kept up with what is going on with his situation. I hope my public apology helps in some way. and if there is anything i can do to help, i can try my best.

And I just want to thank you for doing what is best for the community at large. We appreciate you. And whoever came forth to share their positive responses at this time to connect with you regarding this, i am really grateful. Thank you for changing your vote! Its international Women’s day too which is really special day. And I will continue to do my best for this platform, and put my best foot forward. :dizzy:

Best Regards,

Thank you Chris for accepting my apology. When it comes to my communication with you about what happened in the past, this was needed. i don’t want to have issues with you personally, and i am a true believer we can move forward and always make things better in the future. Maybe we are not on the same wavelength on somethings but we can always come to a level of understanding. Im a forgiver, and i don’t like to hold grudges and i always want what is best for this platform.
i hope that there is a resolution for all of this, I really hope so regarding your project.
I hope we are all happy on this platform, cause i believe we all have a purpose in some way.
Thank you for supporting us. If I win, you win we all win. It’s a collective and a group effort.
Thank you for changing your vote, and maybe we continue to move forward in a positive direction.

Best Regards
