We’re excited to start the #Meelebrity Showdown competition. Each week we’ll be announcing a new theme for the community to find the best celebrity lookalikes, and then we’ll have a tournament-style voting competition to find the best-in-class #Meelebrity.
Can you believe it’s only been 1 month since we first announced MeebitsDAO? It feels like a year in crypto-time and we’ve grown so much already.
Thanks to peej we now have:
We’re getting close to opening the MeebitsDAO for membership, and we hope to achieve the vision of a fully decentralized, self-maintaining system, owned and governed by our members.
We’ve started to define team structures and roles & responsibilities to help us launch the DAO, understanding that this will surely evolve over time as we continue to involve more members in the decision-making process.
We’re here because we want to build cool stuff. We want to have our Meebits running around in games, VR chatrooms, AR live events and applications we haven’t even imagined yet —
5 years from now we still want to be using our Meebits as avatars in the open, interoperable Metaverse!
…but there’s a lot of hard work that needs to be done.
In order to be a Decentralized Autonomous Organization we’re going to need a voting structure that is completely automated via smart contracts. Smart contracts are only as ‘smart’ as the thinking that goes into them, so we want to spend some time discussing a proposal for that system, given that will be at the heart of how the DAO makes decisions post-launch.
Also, even though we need to thoroughly define the technical infrastructure, and the automation, let’s not forget:
A DAO is made of People
We need a…
I’ve been involved with the CryptoGeisha team since I first noticed the project and reached out to the duo to see if I could offer some advice. I’ve also wanted to collaborate with them as an artist, so when my friend Martin beat me to it with a Savage Dogs collaboration, I cleared out my schedule to finally do a collaboration drop!
Having seen some of my work for my generative art and my previous collaborations, the team asked me to share my process, so I documented the process, which I’ve dubbed Bitwise which includes the use of my 4,096…
Restating our common goal–
We want to create a vehicle for funding a series of innovative projects that will develop the ecosystem around Meebits.
We can do this by balancing the collective goals of the members of the DAO as fairly as possible, making sure everyone’s voice is heard– and at the same time making sure that there is momentum around decision-making and clear accountability around the milestones and delivery of our projects.
Let’s look at some of the goals and interests we think we’ll need to balance:
Like many NFT collectors, we were excited when Larva Labs announced Meebits — and the vision of a future where we can use these avatars in virtual worlds and games — the Metaverse we’re all eagerly anticipating.
But how do we get from character models to the Metaverse?
There are a lot of steps in-between. A lot of development that needs to be done before we’re all running around like Ready Player One.
We don’t want to wait for the Metaverse to just happen eventually, maybe — we want to shape it by building small interconnected pieces of…
