Should the following $3,500 grant in the In-World Content category be approved?


We’re seeking support from the Dao to launch our project. Our goal is to create a space that benefits both writers and readers. Many new writers struggle to find readers, often overshadowed by more experienced authors. There’s a substantial global audience, especially in countries like the US, UK, Japan, Germany, France, India, and China, known for their love of books.

To address this, we aim to use the Decentraland metaverse. Our concept, though straightforward, has great potential. We want to attract avid readers to Decentraland and reward customers with points and prizes for buying books, helping writers sell more.

Our project unfolds in three carefully designed layers to ensure a systematic and sustainable growth trajectory:

  1. The First Level - Free Book Selection:

At the first level, we offer a diverse range of free books to readers. This ensures an inclusive environment where anyone can access quality literature without cost.
2. The Second Level - Companion Books Zone:

On the second level, we introduce complementary materials such as guidebooks, workbooks, and summaries. These resources enrich the reading experience, providing valuable insights and understanding of the books available.
3. The Third Level - VIP Writer’s Showcase:

Our third level serves as an exclusive VIP space dedicated to presenting and promoting the works of writers. Authors have the opportunity to feature their works here for a nominal fee, and a quiz system is in place to engage readers. Successfully completing the quiz grants access to the e-versions of VIP books.
It’s important to note that, as we manage growth and traffic challenges, the rollout of the third level may be adjusted accordingly.

Each book within our platform is readily accessible on the Amazon platform, ensuring a convenient and familiar shopping experience for customers. Our initiative’s core principle revolves around fostering collaboration between writers and readers, creating a mutually beneficial ecosystem.

We are committed to nurturing a thriving metaverse reading community within the realm of decentralized virtual environments (DCL). Additionally, our aim is to utilize the metaverse as a revenue-generating platform while offering extra advantages to our valued readers.

As we embark on this exciting journey, we eagerly anticipate the evolution of the metaverse and its potential for literary enrichment.

is there a proof of concept for this project?

Hi @dogman
Thanks for the question.
We believe our plan for the ultimate metaverse bookshop will establish a new standard in this industry since it is lucrative for both writers and customers. We’re committed to providing readers with an experience that is both prosperous and a reflection of the principles we uphold. We’re excited to show how dedicated we are to this goal.

do you feel like your response answered my question?

This sounds like a new and creative way to use Decentraland… and I’m excited by the idea. As Dogman pointed out, a proof of concept would help us see what you are capable of. Voting no for now, but with a valid proof of concept I’d love to be able to support in the future :slight_smile:

Hi!, Thanks for your feedback!. We have decided to work on a proof of concept and resubmit the proposal once ready.

Hello, I was waiting on your reply regarding the POC so thank you for preparing one. I will vote Abstain on this prop and look forward to what you present for the next one.
