Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Gaming category be approved?
VoxBoards is a project born in Decentraland (late December 2021), created for/with its community. We have been collaborating with many members of the space with the goal of mutual growth and union between users, projects, brands and Decentraland.
We created many skateboard related NFTs including 3D models, wearables and assets. We have been organizing and sponsoring several events and contests. During april we tested a small alpha version of the skatepark with a p2e game, running with daily users:

What will we develop?
VoxBoards HQ at the Meta GamiMall(147,60):
Skateshop: HQ’s Lobby and shop
Skatepark: P2E Game
Stage/Gallery: Events and promotion
The HQ lobby, where users will find an assistant, Decentraland wearables and other NFTs to purchase. The wearables on the shop will benefit the players during the P2E. Perks will include power-ups and game avatars(Avatar Swap). This will raise the value of those NFTs, their ownership, the project and Decentraland.
Players will have tokens to collect, obstacules and enemies to avoid, compete for top scores, win prizes, use NFTs and enjoy a skateboarding game in Decentraland.
Skatepark, characters, avatars and assets can be changed according to events, seasons and tournaments. This will allow other projects to join and give the opportunity for their communtities to experience NFT ownership utility, which will bring more traffic and value to Decentraland simultanously.
The player can access the skatepark by teleport from the shop/lobby. Inside the skatepark,the user can log in and play. There will be rounds of 3 minutes to catch a limited amount of tokens, enemies to avoid and diferent levels to unlock.
A place for events and promotional content, where users can join, hang out and celebrate. NFTs can be displayed and purchased, users can learn more about Decentraland, NFT utility, web3, watch in-game and IRL competitions, interviews, streamings, videos and interact with assets.
We will utilize this feature to bring more projects to decentraland and experience the metaverse, by offering a space where they can find their target costumers and give more utility possibilities to their community members and customers.
The skatepark and stage assets, characters and gallery can be customized. We are ready to host events, create avatars, wearables, assets and promotional content.
The player can access the skatepark by teleport from the shop/lobby or skatepark.
How will it be sustainable?
Our plan is to have a space where other projects and brands can relate and join, which will bring more users. Creating more wearables for decentraland with game features will bring more value to the NFTs and Decentraland.
There are many people interested in skateboarding and we believe this project can expand quickly and bring gamers, IRL skaters, brands, NFT projects and their communuties if done on a bigger scale.
Once we have the HQ running we can generate income by:
- Renting space for exposing NFTs and other merch, making them available for purchase
- Custom events for clients
- Creating/Selling NFTs with game utility
- Selling merch(IRL or NFT)
The funds from DAO would allow us to create improved and sustainble experiences that we can later present to users, clients and collaborators. We plan to work with iconic creators, invest on promoting and bringing more people in, by building a platform with a fun game-play and dynamic supportive enviroment.
In order to complete the project we need to build the HQ, design characters and other assets, develop the game structure/mechanics and code using SDK.
SkateShop Model: base model and interior decorations.
Assistant Model: character at the store that users can interact for guidance about the HQ .
Forge Machine: to forge items and NFTs
Skatepark P2E game:
Skatepark model: The base.
Skatepark assets: diferent models that we can upload for different levels and challenges in the game.
Animated platforms and obstacules: assets to make the gameplay more challenging and appealing.
Tokens: to collect all around the skatepark. They can be used to craft items and NFTs.
Game Avatars: We will start with 10 avatars! 10 that can be earned or bought and are associated with wearables (limited stock on both options). The game avatars are NFTs, using the same technology as in the MetaDoge NFT CoinRace (Avatar Swap). The will be specially designed and animated for the game.
Assistant: To guide the user…
Friends: Skater characters cheering for you and giving you tips when you approach and interact with them
Enemies: Security characters who will collide with the players if unavoided and teleport them out of the building. Enemies skating around the park who will collide if unavoided and make player loose tokens.
Wearables: The “voxboard bundle 1”(lower body) will provide the utility to enter and play the game. “VoxBoarder”(skin) has 2 representations which will be associated with 2 avatars. Other existing wearables are going to grant bonus scores in game. We will also create and publish 5 more skater clothing items and 4 more skins to be associated with 8 avatars.
Creating total of 9 more wearables instead of other NFTs for the Avatar Swap it’s a way to bring back funds to the DAO while giving more value to Decentraland, MANA, and trading.
Stage Model: The base model and interior decorations.
Assets: Screen, poap machine, ramps and other skateboarding related assets, for the space to be more fun and interactive.
Gallery: Displaying NFTs and other content linked to markets.
Assistant: To guide the user and teleport to other area.

Voxboards team will continue to collaborate with decentraland creators for 3D designs, game development, promotional content, advertisment and will also invest on reaching outside the community for pro skaters, Djs, gaming, crypto and NFT influencers.
The team members for this project have been working hard on improving decentraland, help and expand the community. We also have the advantage to have both, portuguese and english speakers who can reach, invite and assist a wide range of people.
