My involvement with Decentraland:
I have first entered this space in January 2022 and have been active within the community for over 7 months. I have been involved with many events, attended many shows, and have supporting different organizations as well as artists and creators within this space. The following are a few of the achievements and venues I supported:
Attended the MetaParty Fashion Week as a content creator in March.
Collaborated with individuals to publish wearables.
Became a reporter for the “The Decentraland Report (May 2022) and have been actively engaged in covering content from events, to interviews with members of this space.
Voted on previous DAO proposals.
Create unique posts on social media (Twitter, Tiktok, and YouTube).
Purchased many wearable creators by purchasing their wearables, promoting their giveaways / updates, and
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
I have about 2100 VP (1 Parcel, and name claim) in which I leverage to support new ideas and DAO proposals. However, I would like to have more because I can use my experience from the military and consulting to investigate the DAO proposals from a business perspective.
Many subcontracts in the past I have worked with IRL, had proposed their deliverables in the scope of work. I also had many incidents where a scope of work was not clearly defined, in which resulted in a loss of financial and poor-quality deliverables. Leveraging my project management background as a consultant, I possess the abilities to properly assess a proposal by identifying crucial gaps and vulnerabilities, especially if the work breakdown structure is not clearly defined.
My having VP delegated to myself, I can ensure the proposals are well documented, and provide an unbiased view from a business perspective and DCL stakeholders will be properly represented.
My 5-year vision for Decentraland:
I foresee Decentraland being the premier metaverse, and many of the builders within this space are ensuring this vision is being well achieved. It will scale further with even more active users. Although, many other competitors are trying to build new metaverses, Decentraland- will always be the premier hub in terms of metaverses. The number of builders and leaders within this community is unrivaled. I also would like to show military representation within this space. Many veterans, and even soldiers who are deployed to various parts of the globe, can still have connectivity, and have the social interaction that zoom, face time cannot achieve.
My ultimate 5-year vision for Decentraland is having more large organizations and brands entering Decentraland, because of the quality community members, potential outreach to people across the whole globe, and leveraging the pioneers who have been supporting this space as subject matter experts. In doing so, members who have been in this space may bolster their career as a consultant or technical subject matter expert and work side by side with vast organizations.
As for activity, in the past 6 months I have been in this space, I have seen pioneers such as MetaParty, DiceMasters, Babydolls and many other organizations really pushing the boundaries to provide a unique end user experience. I foresee many organizations within this space leveraging this skill set in providing amazing gaming, gallery, and event experience for individuals.
What do you think is the most important issue in Decentraland?
One of the biggest issues I have seen during my tenure in Decentraland is retention and scaling the platform. Retention is quintessential because we need to have many quality users not logging on once and then leave, but to continue logging on and being part of the community. Much feedback I received from the community was “there was nothing to do.“ However, many organizations have down a spectacular job in creating a one-of-a-kind end user experience such as MetaParty with their battle 2 earn system, and DiceMasters with their incredible RPG developed, and BVERSE with their networking and fireside twitter spaces. I think as time progresses, there will be even more organizations creating new experiences for individuals to participate in.
The last issue I have seen is up-scaling and marketing. Many organizations and even media outlets have attempted to cover topics on Decentraland and the metaverse in general, but fails to provide an extraordinary message to the possibilities within this space. Many social media platforms such as TikTok, LinkedIn, and reddit are untapped platforms that can provide amazing content in what Decentraland is, the benefits in this space, and ultimately exposure for Decentraland to upscale and attract quality users.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I hope I can be the spearhead in some of these changes with VP delegated to myself.
