  1. How to get into Decentraland?

From setting up a Metamask wallet, log in and introduce utilities of Decentraland to how to find events, and guide them to different venues, and introduce governance and how to get involved in the DAO community.

6. How to market themselves in Decentraland?

How to host events, what’s the main social media to use, how to start their own brand.

Apart from these courses, we also help to integrate their designs with 3D modeling, as we previously did with the designers that we worked with. Host events for designers, and have giveaways for the communities with games and parties. The cost of courses, 3D modeling, and parties will be covered by DigiFun.

Currently, we are still looking for more designers to enter Decentraland.

Specification

The organization of artists and discussion about design will be in our forum, which is more public and convenient. Almost the same as Decentraland forum. And in the community, we also provide courses relevant to 3D modeling on Blender, Decentraland tutorials, marketing etc.

For each design, DigiFun will submit a proposal in the forum, and discuss the details and progress of the proposal. Finally, the design will be voted on by all artists in DigiFun DAO.

Currently, we have applied our Domain Name, chosen Metaforo as our forum tool, and created Snapshot space as our voting tool.

Before receiving funds, we developed abundant experience in Decentraland through making wearables, hosting events, and working with different designers and venues. Currently, The team has launched 30 wearables, and weekly parties and P2E at DigiFun venue and collaborated with other DCL venues such as MetaParty, MetaTrekkers, B-Verse, MetaGamimall, Dragon City, and BabyDolls.

Suppose the fund application is approved within a month, then the following activities will be launched:

Within three months, we will release 6 classes, release a wearable collection every week with different artists, host a launching party every two weeks, and hold an exhibition every month with all the artists we’ve worked with. Our goal is to bring more designers outside of Decentraland into Decentraland, to bring value to the fashion space, and the Decentraland community.

Funds breakdown:

  • Help enter Decentraland. This includes 6 classes, marketing and events: 1500u

  • 3D Modeling and graphic: 1500u

The team is accountable to the community. There will be monthly updates via social media platforms, the Forum will be open for everyone to see, and active engagement with the community. We are taking this seriously, and sincerely want the DCL community to be bigger and better.

Thank you for all the valuable advises from DCL community members. We have edited the previous proposals in following points:

  1. The publication fee will be covered by DigiFun and artists rather than the grant.

  2. We extend the onboarding processes with wearable courses, help new artists come to DCL.

  3. We will host party and twitter space to help artists connect with the community and stay in DCL.

I would like to commend Digifun, they are one of hardest workers in the game. The first proposal didn’t go so smooth because of some culture misunderstanding, however they didn’t give up, they just went back to the drawing board and created another one with more value! They even asked for advice on how to make it better and follow the DCL rules.This is the type of relentless commitment we need, don’t give up and keep innovating! This has my vote and would do it ten times over! Metatrekkers is rooting for the little guys.

Thank you for your support, our efforts are worthwhile!

I had not voted on this yet, as I didn’t want there to be a conflict of interest with future work with DigiFun. But as I have seen this has passed and will more than likely do so in the next 5 days, I will go ahead and finally add my vote! So proud of y’all, and can’t wait to work with the team on some exciting things!

congratulations on getting your proposal passed. I will vote with the crowd to help you get it over the goal line but had a thought about it…With this proposal is there a possibility of having a percentage of the first 5 wearables of each of those gaining the free education and onboarding gifted back to the DAO to help pay back for their free education?
