Should the following Tier 5: up to $120,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Platform Contributor category be approved?
In 2021, the word “Metaverse” went viral. However, there are only a few people who actually have experienced “Metaverse” in Japan. So Us, Room Zero is going to build Decentraland’s first interactive “Metaverse” class where visitors get to enhance their understanding towards Crypto and Metaverse (Defi, NFTs, and etc). This will help users to understand why Metaverse can be the next future where people get to interact in a more secure and transparent society.
Room Zero was founded in 2017 to deepen our understanding towards the next wave, web3. Our team has been working on developing a variety of platforms such as “Cheese” which is a platform where users receive a bitcoin in exchange for leaving a review for public products. This platform already has almost 100,000 active users just in Japan and is planning to spread even more.
The reason why we started our development in web 3 is because we clearly felt the need for transparency that is lacking in today’s society. Additionally, the enthusiasm which this web3 community has is insane! So we decided to come up with a plan to we can spread the knowledge of web 3 technologies on decentraland even to people who do not know what “blockchain” is.
This will help new entering-users to comprehend the potentials which Metaverse has, which will revitalize our community and tokens faster and bigger. Since we concluded that the people are not as excited as the peak time is because the structure of Metaverse (even just in crypto) is too complicated that people didn’t really understand the value and potentials of Metaverse. Thus we believe that this will help our new users to comprehend what Metaverse is.
To make the users more involved in our platform, the layout and the design of its building has to look fun and attractive. We’re not going to build a library where users get to just walk around and read textbooks. That’s just too boring. But rather, we’re going to build a dreamland where visitors get to experience and learn about web 3. For instance, we’re under development of building a maze where people have to choose the right answer for them to make it to the goal.
Also, we’re planning to build an escape room and roller coaster where users can experience and learn about structures of P2E and DAO.
List of things where this land will provide
・Learning about the structure of Metaverse
・Structure of Crypto/Blockchain and its potential
・What is NFT?
・Metaverse new idea box
Also, using DAO, we’re planning to distribute tokens where investors get to govern the service of its development.
The allocation of investment will be
・$3,000 : For hiring an Architect Designer
・$4,800 : Land Creator
*We also have several creators in our team (not included in a grant).
*This is our test-play screen of the maze… We cannot show you what the actual buildings will look like yet since it’s under development.
We already have multiple investors and a VC who is willing to invest for us to make a land purchase. Our budget for the land is approximately $200K so far, so we’re going to have fairly big lands where users can interact and learn about the structure of Crypto and Metaverse.
Roadmap and milestones
・Final design decided (August)
・Creating lands (September-January)
・In Public (Feburary) →Improvements
This is our first grant report so feel free to leave any feedback or comments.
English is not our first language so I apologize if there’s any part where our description is unclear. But we know this plan is going to help not only Decentraland community but also web3 industry as a whole, so please help us receive our grant!
