Description

We need a place where anyone inside and outside the Decentraland-community can suggest ideas for events and projects for games, artistic projects, and land-projects inside Decentraland. This is a crowdsourcing and -voting platform that encourages and inspires collaboration of existing and new stakeholders and new project ideas and partnerships.

This is different than the already existing DAO-community voting as this platform will be open and public and is inviting interested people that want to participate in Decentraland by either contributing ideas and/or resources.

Goals: Having built the open platform and having engaged 30 people that have co-organized or participated in community events and/or collaborative projects.

Specification

Please see the following links to videos, prototypes and the white paper and also the section “Roadmap and milestones” below for further details.

A) 1.5-minute interview of Simon explaining what Favourse is: https://video.favourse.com/
On www.Favourse.com you can find overview, short explainer videos with main use cases, links to telegram-groups, team, etc.
C) https://demo.favourse.com - Demo (view-only) related to the main use cases referenced in the explainer videos
D) https://pre.favourse.com - Prototype, can register with few clicks, play around
E) https://whitepaper.favourse.com - White paper

We are happy to provide further information regarding details about the technical implementation. The current prototype was built in Laravel (PHP, Javascript, etc.), though once awarded the grant, we will re-evaluate if and if yes, what part of the current prototype could be re-used. Also, we would be happy to hear feedback and suggestions from the community and potentially re-use already existing code and tools.

Roadmap and milestones

1. Month: Evaluating which part of the existing prototype pre.favourse.com can be used (Erik); designing and defining technical framework that allows for experimentation and bringing together of different elements of the platform, namely event/idea-generation/suggestion, voting, feedback and crowdsourcing.

In parallel: Creating a list of different Decentraland-stakeholders and inviting them to pilot on our platform (Dewi, Simon). This activity will be ongoing and will develop and engage people from within and without the current Decentraland-community.

2. + 3. Month: Erik & Sadu (development), together with Iosi & Imad (UI and design), define and start development of the first version with core elements of suggesting, voting, trending-view and tag-search.

4. Month: Launch of first version and opening up for registrations to users, asking already contacted prospects to register and start using the protype.

5. Month: Have 1 event or collaborative land-project that was suggested, voted for and organized on the platform.

6. Month: Have 5 events or collaborative land-projects that were suggested, voted for and organized on the platform.

An iteration of the project could involve allowing people to vote with their wallets or use MANA to vote and/or to fund projects/ideas/events.

Key Metrics
Number of people that participated: 50
Number of idea-events or collaborative land-projects created: 20
Number of total votes: 200
