To me I think locations that are worthy of a Point of Interest star have done the following:
Worked to host events before applying for a POI star
Gotten to know community members and become active within the DCL community
Brought value to the greater Decentraland community in a way that is not self-serving
Minted the name they are proposing the POI with
Dicemasters, (AKA Borderland) is an example of how to correctly approach getting a POI star. They’ve been building for months, asking for feedback from the community, working with land owners and NFT holders, and only now are they asking for a POI star after they have proved that their project is sustainable long term. This is the kind of build that deserves to have a star on the map. Thank you for all you have done to contribute to Decentraland!
