Hey MetaCartel -
I was listening in on a DAOHaus call recently, and I heard some talking about Chilis, and the ambitions of doing some work focused on using a basket of tokens to incentivize projects.
The post above is an idea I wrote up for 1hive this week.
It’s basically a competitive league for monetizing youtube channels, by shipping 3-4 Skillshare Courses each month.
Teams must ship 3-4 public skillshare courses to qualify for monthly distributions of a reward pool.
[over 4 months]
Teams that qualify then compete with one another for what % of the reward pool they get to claim, based on the competence of their work – a handful of metrics.
If a Team flakes or cheats, they are disqualified from receiving funding immediately, and eliminated.
The trick is that if the Skillshare Courses are Public, then those courses can be published anywhere. There are some really neat subtle bonuses there as well.
- Courses must have actionable projects.
- Courses must be of high quality - curated by Skillshare
- Courses must have a minimum of 5 individual videos.
- Skillshare Class Clips, Youtube and Tik Tok and Twitter all facilitate 2 Min 10 Second Video Clips.
- Top CPM Youtube Niches are all about how to make money from small projects.
- DAOs are all looking to onboard project managers and talented people into the space to grow the BUIDL part of the crypto economy.
I got some feedback on this after sharing it with Brady McKenna over at District0x, and he suggested that District0x would be interested, and that I ought to make it a basket of tokens.
The Proposal for 1hive is 60 HNY over 4 months, and it covers 5 teams.
So it comes out to about 5k DAI worth of whatever token per team to participate, but the upside is incubating a few media channels for the MetaCartel.
If this sounds compelling, please consider reading through the proposal on 1hive, and then volunteering a contribution to match funds, or sponsor a team.
I’ll try not to spam your network, but if you find this an interesting experiment, feel free to pass it around, or share some thoughts on the 1hive proposal page.
