- Use the power of storytelling to spread positive messages about DAOs
- Create a flywheel to attract more good people, crypto natives and crypto adjacents (community builders, freelancers, indie workers) into the DAO ecosystem
Description: We are asking for a grant to write and publish a storytelling series on DAOs. Our goal is to craft a cohesive narrative about DAOs. Each story will stand on its own - one DAO per story - but a common thread will be weaved, along with a summary and lessons learned.
The Work: I will facilitate interviews with DAO teams to get first-hand accounts of where they’ve been and where they’re going. I will also conduct research on each DAO using second-hand sources like articles, blog posts, videos, and media narratives.
Funding Request: $4,000 DAI/story paid by each DAO. Payment to be made preferably in DAI but will also consider DAO’s token.
Impact: Increase membership and adoption by painting a picture of DAOs that is less mysterious, less clicky, and more digestible for mainstream audiences.
DAO Targets: MetaCartel, MetaGamaDelta, MetaFactory, Panvala, Gitcoin, DAOhaus, RaidGuild, 1Hive, MetaCred, et al
Process: Metacartel will be written about first, followed by other DAOs, in no particular order. DAOs will have access to all previously published stories. The initial goal is to write 1 story/month.
Why start with Metacartel:
Metacartel is the first fork of MOLOCH and so it has a rich history. By asking for a small grant from MC we hope to get the support of the members and the signal that this creative storytelling is valuable to the rest of the ecosystem. The sustainability of the project will focus on collective fundraising from each DAO that is featured in the book.
