Project Details: It’s clear both crypto and NFTs need better onboarding resources. No one wants to be the person who convinces their friends/partners/family/coworkers to look into crypto because they may lose money or come back with too many questions. Nouns can solve this by creating an onboarding site that cryptonatives can point to. I’ve attached a few tweets from CT natives expressing the need for precisely what I’m proposing.
The website would take new users through; creating a wallet, getting funds from a wallet (preferably Polygon), minting a project (preferably on Polygon), and include educational resources on the basics of crypto, NFTs (with Nouns as the example), and an FAQ.
The mint itself would occur on Polygon to keep costs low, potentially free, for new users. We could fill the contract with eth to make the mint gasless or push new folks towards one of the poly faucets.
- Anounimals will help NounsDAO proliferate by giving cryptonatives a resource they can share to help educate their non-crypto friends/family/peers. No coins or awkward Thanksgiving conversations necessary.
- The PFP. Taking the animal-based Noun heads gives new folks an easy-to-vibe-with PFP they can use across social media.
Roadmap: Develop written & video content to walk new users through,
- Setting up a wallet
- Receiving funds from a faucet (if necessary)
- What is NounsDAO?
- Minting an Anounimal
- Basic web/crypto security
- Continually updated FAQ
- Continually updated glossary
Extended topics include, but are not limited to;
- What is a DAO
- Common complaints and rebuttals against cryptocurrencies
- Common complaints and rebuttals against NFTs
- How do Blockchains work
Use of Funds:
- 3-10E for contract development. (I’ve received wildly different rates recently)
- 5E to create and sustain a gasless mint on Polygon
- 0.5-3E for website creation
- 0.5E for art
- 3E for initial content creation
The remaining eth can be returned or used to fund additional content.
