Nouns DAO seeks to fuel a virtuous cycle that reaches the world and forever impacts cryptocurrency. This requires real people with real lives that have changed for the better.
The opportunities to achieve this in the world’s underserved communities are immense.
humanDAO is a social impact organization that has built a flourishing community and proven our ability to provide income, food, and shelter to those in need. We have helped people recover from natural disasters, buy medicine for sick family members, and purchase IT equipment to support their studies and participate in the global economy.
By granting humanDAO a Noun in exchange for Noun-ish branding in our upcoming NFT project, we are seeking the opportunity to join the Nouns community on behalf of the underserved, extend Nouns influence into developing nations, and create a long-term relationship.
humanDAO is a community-funded DAO built around the core pillars of providing meals, education & wages to people from low-income, underserved backgrounds worldwide. We leverage crypto-tech (NFTs, P2E, L2, DeFi, etc.) to improve lives.
humanDAO has supplied over 3,000 meals through our Food For Life global partnership. We also provide wages to nearly 1,000 community members, and our community now exceeds 60k people. We were just selected for partnership by Moonbirds in their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) campaign.
While we currently provide earnings through P2E scholarships, we have seen a massive opportunity to further give people sustainable income by expanding the scholarship program outside gaming in a new and profound business model. Pocket Assistant NFTs are the first step in this growth and form part of our long-term vision for a Metaverse Talent Network, which onboards and upskills new web3 contributors from underserved communities, and places them in web3 roles.
Our first project outside of gaming - Pocket Assistant NFTs - is pioneering a new gig economy for the web3 industry. We have a large community, and they are eager to contribute and earn. PANFT holders will be able to utilize a weekly service to get their time-consuming low-level tasks completed.
Tasks such as data entry, comparing prices, submitting inquiries, creating presentations, research, and staying on top of the busy world of crypto can easily be delegated to a Pocket Assistant NFT. In doing so, provide valuable, safe, flexible work and income to someone in an underserved community.
This is a step change in utility for NFTs, a jpeg with real-world utility, freeing up hours per week for holders and providing wages to those most in need across the world. We can simultaneously pay a competitive salary on par with local professional roles, distribute ownership and responsibility of hDAO, and build additional revenue streams. This is a tremendous opportunity for crypto to demonstrate that NFTs can be much more.
PANFT project highlights:
- Building a web app for token holders to utilize the service.
- Over 1,000 people applied for the PA role within 7 days.
- Accepted 130+ applicants who passed our assessment test of their communication and problem-solving skills to become Pocket Assistants
- Art contest. We will hold a 3-4 week design contest for the art to be used on the actual NFT.
Nouns DAO would be joining several other recognized names in web3 as collaborators on PANFT:
- BanklessDAO - our marketing partner and educational platform provider.
- Layer3 - our chosen platform to partner and run an exciting $20,000 art competition.
- Rarible - NFT protocol and marketplace facilitating the unique mechanics of PANFTs
We have a payload ready for launch, and we believe Nouns and its signature branding can help fuel the rocket. We are building for the long term and measuring our success by the number of lives we improve.
The NFT and service is planned to be released (minted) when it receives 400 reservations. We will release the reservation smart contract the week of August 1st and begin our marketing push through our advisors and partnerships. More details found HERE.
We are requesting:
- 1 Noun NFT, to be held in the humanDAO treasury, to facilitate ongoing discussions and contributions towards growing our collective social impact. The purpose of the NFT is to create a connection; we have no intention to sell it.
In return, Nouns DAO receives:
- Noun-ish branding (noggles or Noun) supporting the growth of the Nouns brand worldwide. This will be heavily featured and displayed throughout the 4 week art contest.
- Branding included on the NFT itself
- Branding on the PANFT wristbands (provides holders one-tap access to our app)
- Branding on the humanDAO logo (similar to above image) intermittently
- 2 PANFTs to be used for giveaways. 1 among the Discord members, and 1 among Nouns holders.
