We’ll use MOCA as our curator for a 3 month tournament of art battles. We’ll purchase the art and give away art the winner of each battle to one lucky player/voter. The last battle will go down between all of the winners for the grand prize.
We’re using our custom voting system utilizing POAP dispensers, firebase, and custom SDK code.
We’re co-founders from Columbus, OH. We complement each others strengths very well, with formal education in art and computer programming. We have owned 38,103 on bbstudios.eth wallet since December of 2019. The address we provided for funds deposit will be reverse resolved to artordai.eth and is the company(registered LLC) wallet.
Roadmap and milestones
We’ll do 12 battles $1000 in art purchases and prizes each. $5K will go to final prize.
I’m going on Blockchain & Booze as a dedicated guest to talk about this project in a couple weeks, and possibly out to BlockchainLA summit. Getting brand traction and outside sponsors will pay dividends down the road, and we believe using this model will 10x daily users on battle days.
The remaining $8k will be used to hire a TikTok and Twitch operator to cover the battles and to pay myself and bake.eth a little compensation for running the battles. To push back against HPrivakos: This is peanuts money compared to what’s being authorized. We are buying art and giving it away to players, that’s not the same as just giving away tons of money.
Thank you for submitting this grant. I voted no because I feel like there could have been more details in the expenditures. You are going to use this grant to purchase art to give away, which is an idea I can support. But my issue is: How do you choose which art you going to purchase? A grant of this size could easily be used to turn around and buy art from friends, family, or even the recipient of the grant. What safeguards to you have in place to prevent this? What protocol do you use when choosing which art will be purchased?
