Creative: A gamified blockchain platform for independent creators, fans, and brands to collaborate directly and earn rewards & DeFi incentives

1 Project Title

Creative Platform

2 Description

A gamified blockchain platform for independent creators, fans, and brands to collaborate directly and earn rewards using P2E DeFi incentives.

3 Manifesto/Vision

Our mission, is to bring imagination and originality to independent creators by offering services and innovative technology solutions to catapult their careers.

4 Problem

The modern entertainment industry does not allow the creator to develop a real independent career. Access to funding is limited and rarely banked.

Furthermore, creators are benefiting the most from the DeFi tools of the crypto world.

5 Solution

Allow creators to get funded by enabling them to submit to incentivized campaign opportunities from individuals/corporations/brands that believe in emerging talent and invest based on creators’ work for fresh content.

6 Product Features

Creative platform is a gamified blockchain platform for independent creators, fans, and brands to collaborate directly and earn rewards using P2E DeFi incentives.

Creative platform is using Textile to store content and to persist that data permanently using Filecoin. We plan to further integrate Filecoin storage using Ethereum and Polygon bridges into our existing Textile implementation. We use Fleek to host Creative platform on IPFS.

Creative platform uses Chainlink to issue NFTs to winners of raffles using their verifiable random functionality (VRF), and oracles to verify users on our platform by going off-chain to Twitter and verifying against existing Twitter accounts.

Another product feature includes the use of Polygon. Polygon serves as our initial blockchain for release because of their L2 operability. Using Polygon allows our platform to have fast transactions, and low gas fees, which in turn affords our platform a continuous positive web3 user experience.

Creative platform uses easy fiat on-ramp wallets such as Wert and multichain functionality via Venly. This affords us mass adoption appeal by reducing any limitations on how our users interact with the platform.

With the usage of the Superfluid protocol, the Creative platform affords the ability to stream daily royalties to creators when uploaded to streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, TikTok, Beatport, YouTube, etc.) The platform also has the ability to stream social tokens to fans as a reward incentive for fan votes.

Other protocol integration features include Celo, POAP, DaoHaus, OpenSea, Rarible, and Loom SDK.

7 Validation

Creative platform has gained attention of both creatives of multiple industries and brands alike. Recently, Creative platform gained the attention and interest of multi Grammy winning Chicago house record label S+S records and superstar rapper Megan Thee Stallion. New brand interests include Los Angeles based dog streetwear brand Fresh Paws, luxury clothing line Moncler, and luxury Swiss watch brand Breitling.

8 Progress

May 2021: Chainlink chose Creative platform as winners for the ETHGlobal Scaling Ethereum hackathon for best use case of Chainlink protocol.

July 2021: Protocol Labs chose Creative platform for best use of Textile storage.

October 2021: Creative platform was chosen by Filecoin to receive a next-step micro grant for our initial integration of, with next steps to integrate Filecoin using Polygon <> Filecoin bridge and Ethereum <> Filecoin bridge.

November 2021: Creative hosted its first Twitter Space alongside Chainlink, where we discussed our integration and what benefit this can present to creatives, fans, and brands. Creative platform distributed an exclusive commemorative Chainlink x Creative POAP for all attendees of the event.

Being a platform that was incubated through multiple hackathons and contributors, we have progressed to a level of 50% completion. With many of the aforementioned features currently in place or under development.

9 Differentiation (from other projects)

The differentiation between our project and others is that we give creatives the ability to develop a career path by earning paid reputations with brands, daily royalties, multichain compatibility, and tools to further their career with DeFi tools (i.e. liquidity pools and ticket staking for individual creator events and needs).

Submitted proposal for [Part 1] of total funding: Part 1 funding proposal

Proposal consists of the design sprint for the artist onboarding flow via RaidGuild.

Created updated funding proposal. Initial proposal constituted of Membership (1 share). This proposal represents the first half of actual funding within our xDai DAO.
Updated funding proposal

RaidGuild submission has been sent from our DAO as a requirement from MetaCartel to do a design sprint around our creator onboarding flow:

Meeting Update with RaidGuild: Spoke with taekikz and joshsdoug for our initial consultation and expressed great excitement around the project. They felt that a creator onboarding design flow probably wouldn’t be needed for us. But maybe more of a UX testing or assistance on building out some additional components to help propel development at a faster pace.

They also, offered us exposure to onboard additional creators and creative DAOs from within their network into our platform to help prove the concept and use-case.

Latest development update: We’re currently in a state where all three roles are functioning (Fans, Creators, Brands) :tada:

We are now going through the application and doing our own debugging and testing (phase: QA). This should take us 2 – 3 weeks to fully complete and launch us into the “Beta” phase. During this phase, we will need help on finding code auditors so that we can transition into a state of “Production”.

We would like to revisit having Raid Guild help us with testing and what services they can provide us from this point to help get us to “Launch” :rocket:

Latest Creative platform Demo

Hello Carteleans, we would like to apply for a second and final grant round.

A year ago, we applied for our first grant with MetaCartel to help us on our journey to build a gamified blockchain platform for independent creators, fans, and brands to collaborate directly and earn rewards using P2E DeFi incentives.

We’re looking to use a 10k grant to aid us in completing the final features in our roadmap:

  1. Complete any remaining updates and bug fixes for Creative platform. Our bug board can be loacated here: Living Suggestions Board

  2. Smart Contract Audit

  3. CreativeTV (CRTV)

  • We are building a platform that integrates with Livepeer to create and distribute video IP 100% owned by creatives and decentralized to help them generate revenue.

  • Creatives will use their content to become broadcasters with ads, concerts, and other art curated and governed within the community.

  • We will also create and feature content to stream within our metaverse.

  1. MeToken Integration
  • meTokens is a protocol built on Ethereum that allows creators and builders to issue their own personal token. Issue your own meToken or become a stakeholder in other people’s meTokens. meTokens are designed for anyone to use - not just influencers. meTokens are built on top of a custom automated market maker (AMM), which simplifies your meToken distribution. Additionally, they leverage all the capital efficiencies of DeFi, so you never need to worry about missing an opportunity to maximize your income.

  • Creative will use MeTokens to create a token economy that helps support creators revenue beyond making 100% of their streaming revenue.


Here are a few walkthrough videos of what we’ve done so far with the last grant you gave us:

What Next


With the addition of LivePeer we can decentralize how we create content around the brand campaigns. We are building an ecosystem nourished by fan engagement with our P2E models and cryptoeconomic incentives that brands can utilize to market digital products. With the addition of MeTokens creatives can have a truely decentralized career solution that incentivizes the creator with their own ERC20 token. Having our own Metaverse allows us to build interactive experiences with the Creative TV and the NFTs we create for brands throughout the Creative ecosystem.

Hello everyone,

I’m excited to share an update on Creative Platform, a project that received a grant from MetaCartel in December 2021. Since then, we’ve been hard at work developing our platform for creators to monetize their content through NFTs and other digital assets.

Here’s some more information about our project and our experience with MetaCartel:

MetaCartel Grant Details:

  • Received a $10K grant from MetaCartel in December 2021
  • Received a $5K grant from Filecoin Foundation around the same time
  • Used the grant for all areas of software development
  • Consider the grant vital for sustaining development during that time period

Project Impact:

  • Users/members/community: 3/11/150
  • TVL: $5K
  • AUM: Stageverse Metaverse Spaces


  • Can you describe the impact (if any) the grant had on your project’s success?

Infrastructure: Building and maintaining the necessary infrastructure to power a platform like Creative Organization DAO can be costly. The grant has helped cover these costs and allowed the team to focus on development and growth rather than infrastructure.

Innovation: The grant has given the team the freedom to explore new ideas and experiment with different approaches to building their platform. This is especially important in a rapidly evolving industry like blockchain, where the ability to adapt and innovate can be a key competitive advantage.

  • What are some major roadblocks you have faced since receiving the grant, if any?

Market conditions: The cryptocurrency and blockchain industry is highly volatile and subject to rapidly changing market conditions. With the market experiencing a downturn, it impacted Creative Organization DAO’s ability to attract users and generate revenue.

  • Has your original goal(s) changed since receiving the grant? (Y/N)

  • Does your project have a native token?

  • Describe how your project has grown since receiving the grant.

Creative Organization DAO had 11 members at the time we received the MetaCartel grant. As of now, we have grown to 150 users/members, which is a significant increase.

  • Do you consider MetaCartel an important pillar in the Ethereum ecosystem?

  • Would you consider paying it forward so MC can continue providing support to early-stage projects?

We’re grateful for the support from MetaCartel and other grant providers that have helped us reach this point. We’ve seen significant growth in our community and partnerships, and we’re excited to continue building on this momentum.

Thank you for reading, and we welcome any questions or feedback you may have!

Best regards,
