[DAO: QmQ8WBR] Bring the Lagoinha Christian Church to DCL

by 0x4df61d27c79d9cf409cf223a24d0bcf93fcdd0f0 (Lagoplay)

Should the following Tier 6: up to $240,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Platform Contributor category be approved?


Peace! We are from Lagoplay, one of the sectors of the Lagoinha Christian church responsible for creating mobile games and virtual environments to evangelize through technologies!

Lagoinha is the first Brazilian church to enter the metaverse with more than 750 temples spread across more than 20 countries.
We always intended to join Decentraland, but we decided to join a free metaverse (AltspaceVR) and track the number of active people to get here.

The project leader, Pastor André Valadão, has more than 5.2 million followers on Instagram and 860 thousand subscribers on his youtube channel:

Grant size

240,000 USD

Beneficiary address



Why make it happen and expenditures:

With this grant we will attract thousands of new players to the decentraland platform, we will be bringing religion to an environment that is decentralized but what we see most are drugs and content that alienates a large number of people, we will break a taboo.

We will invest all the capital raised from this petition on the Decentraland platform in the following ways:

  1. Buy 8 lands estate: $150.000
  2. Develop 3D temple and PVE Scene with a specialized team: $10.000
  3. Create a Christian P2E game to motivate the constant presence of people: $10.000
  4. Rewards P2E games: $50.000
  5. Create a mobile game with rewards on Decentraland to encourage new users and reach those who don’t have a computer yet but are interested in participating in the metaverse: $5.000
  6. We will launch commercials with 3D animations of our project in 5 languages for global reach: $15.000


Works done:

The team uses Unity to program everything, we have a preview video of what we plan to do here:

Our channels to promote all the projects:


The team comprises

André Valadão (Church Pastor and Leader)

André Fernandes (Church Pastor)

Lucinho Barreto (Church Pastor)

Arthur Aguiar (Digital Influencer)

Yudi Tamashiro (Digital influencer)

Edson Batista (Team technical lead)

Alle Silva (Technical project manager and senior developer)

Juh Domingues (MKT and Metaverse)

André Ricardo (Metaverse Community moderator)

Roadmap and milestones

If the grant request is approved, within 1 month we will have the temple on the purchased land, within 3 months we will have the P2E games implemented and the values to reward players will be enough for about 1 year.

Hopefully, over time, we will be able to profit from NFTs and keep the rewards without the need for DAO.

Just to let you know, we have 200~300 weekly members at altspaceVR without any game to play or reward, thats a problem for us because the room capacity is only 50 so we need to do a lot of rooms, we want to bring then all to DCL and see they using your wearables!

grants asking for money to buy land are generally met with resistance as there is plenty of land available to rent - this would cut your grant down substantially.

furthermore there is no proof that you have built anything / have the capability to build anything in DCL so asking straight away for 240k is also going to meet a lot of resistance.

lastly, the fact that you say your team is programming in unity reveals that you have not done your research - decentraland is not programmed in unity.


I don’t support using grant money to purchase land. If you fail to achieve your vision you’d still have a large asset for free. There’s places to rent land that you can use to test your idea on a much lower budget.


You are free to contact me, if you wish to rent land. We’re the biggest Realtor in Decentraland… We got large estates and single parcels… range from 80 MANA… and to 8-9k USD per month.

Lots of options to rent cheap, and get lots of land.


absurd idea… Reframe your project and try again.

Hi @dax

Thanks for let us know about it!
We gonna met our leaders and talk about it to change the proposal.

About the programming in unity, we have already converted a unity scene to builder and it does work great so we prefer use unity to use more quality in our scene!

Take a look:

If all you see are drugs and alienating content, perhaps you should keep exploring. The way you’ve composed this seems critical of the Decentraland that has already been built. Another option if this proposal fails is to ask for .05 from the 5.2 million followers the pastor has. Just an idea.


I would like to know what involvement of this profile that is asking for 240k dol with Gabriel Ribeiro
