Would love to see Nouns break into the largest nation in the world. Some questions:

30% tax?!?!? How does that work? That’s horrifying.

Otherwise, why not start with the derivative project first and letting the other things flow out of that? I think would be your best bet. Try to get some funding and make a deal like Lil Nouns or FoodNouns to get started. Then use the funding from the auctions to let the Nouns India DAO vote on funding these other projects.

Some special events could also be in order, like what Brazil has done, but that should be it’s own detailed prop outlining the event, potential attendance, and proliferation opportunities. I really think you’re definitely on the right track here though and I’m excited to see your progress!

Hey Andrew!
Thank you for the feedback, for sure we looked into Lil Nouns for the same but our aim is bigger events that aim to bring more people and give exposure to projects which the audience will surely enjoy.
As you can see we have done 3 community based event already, 1 on ground and the very first which was for a social cause and 1 as curators just a month ago. More such things will help Nouns DAO to expand their audience for sure.

Very cool. Keep the ideas and passion flowing. I think it’s a very important market that needs to be tapped into in the coming years.
