Testimonials

- Adrianmcli (noun261, 449)
@fiveoceans_dev was the reason I bought my second Noun. I was amazed at how someone could be so passionate about Nouns. His execution was more impressive than anything I’ve seen in most NFT projects. Being there in person and on his boat allowed me to see the power of the Nouns community being expressed in real life.

- JoelCares (nouncillor)
I’m a simple man. I like boats. I like Noggles. I like fiveoceans_dev. I want to see these videos. My only request: you have to win.

@noun22

Hi, could you please support us from NSFW with 13 ETH to do a photo op on November 4-5?

I would like to get together teams for a sunset shooting 350 km down in the south near Bijindo islands for a sunset photo op.

Here is reference photo & video

P.S.
Meantime we are going to think more how to make this prop more interesting and incorporate comments that we received from community.

For example, we have a few new ideas:

  • Organize a Nouns sailing parade in collaboration with Manhattan Yacht Club in June 2023 during NYC NFT. We can gather people and sail in the fleet of 10 boats from Brooklyn bridge to the Statue of Liberty.
  • Build a 10 x 22 meter floating dock with big logo of noggles
  • Launch a summer sailing school for kids in Korea

Although I loved the pictures produced from prop 102, I personally don’t think 13 ETH for a photoshoot is a good use of the treasury funds.
There is only so much the photos and videos can do by themselves, and if there is no plan for how these specific photos would push Nouns to new places and audiences, I don’t see the costs justified.

Thank you for your comment. I respect your opinion.
