Nouns and storytelling.
Humans change every second of everyday, but there’s one small feature about us that never changes ~ the “art of storytelling”. We’re all storytellers trying to share our stories. From cave drawings and sharing tales of discovering fire TO building a virtual universe, we all want to share a part of us that we find interesting, amusing or any other generic adjective that comes to you Nouns!
Our goal is to share our story with others, right? Massive adaptation only comes when there’s a fun engaging incentive behind it. Can you think of anything “funner” than exploring a story? Being a tv-show, a graphic novel or… you already know what I’m going to say next, right?
Comics are the perfect way of exploring the Nouns story. As 4156 has put it multiple times, it’s so fun to find value in these “goofy-looking” characters, but wouldn’t it be amazing if they came with a story, a tale, a quest or any sort of backstory behind them?
How would Nouns Comic economy work?
Where there’s a story, there’s a storyteller ~ and when there are Nouns, there are “Nounic” stories to be told. Following that pattern, Nouns Comic will be tri-weekly NFTs, coming out as that fun and engaging asset that we so were looking for to bring Nouns public. (Note: Numbers are subject to change)
Here’s what happens every fortnight (Comic Tokens):
- 4500 comics available for a very affordable price (0.02-0.04)
- 486 comics available as rewards for those that interact with the Nouns DAO website
- 14 comics given away on a daily basis for the duration of the fortnight (Twitter, Discord, Instagram, etc)
Here’s what happens every fortnight (Funds):
I have a couple of ideas on what to do with these funds, here are some of them:
- It can be added to the treasury for more builders (Artists, builders of any kind, programmers, etc.) to join all the fun
- It can be stored into a vault and used as a bid in PartyDAO to acquire more Nouns for Noun natives (So basically a DAO inside a DAO inside another DAO which helps all 3 DAOs as a whole)
- It can be rewarded to original Noun holders, this way they are earning passive income with a 14 day ROI
Who’s behind this?
Oh! Hello there, I’m The Oracle. Merely some pebbles travelling through the air… view me as magic dust, but also the creator of The Undead and in charge of The Void.
I’ve been a content creator my whole life, from drawing comics for my peers at school to quitting my job to bring my collection live on the mainnet. My main project “TheUndead” is a beautiful mixture of DeFi and NFTs where holders receive a percentage of the entire revenue generated for holding their Undeads while their assets get featured in comics, shows, graphic novels, merch or anything! The possibilities are endless and forever growing.
Proof of Work
I’m here to learn and deliver. Here’s what I’ve done so far:
I’ve built The Undead from absolute scratch. Bringing unique characters, stories and an entire world to the mainnet while building a strong community and economy around it.
I’ve already put out 3 different series of Undead Comics, ranging from 1-sheet Mini Comics to a full on Comic (7+ pages).
- Mini-Comic #1 (1 Sheet Mini-Comic) / June 30th
Mini-Comic #2 (1 Sheet Mini-Comic) / July 19th
Mini-Comic #3 (7 Pages of comics as unlockable content + Animated cover) / August 25th
- Pages 1, 2 and 3 available below
- Pages 1, 2 and 3 available below
3 Phases of execution
- 10 days of creation, from writing stories to interacting with the Noun community
- 15 to 20 ETH budget:
- 60% Artist (The Oracle, yours truly)
- 25% Storyteller (The Butcher)
- 15% Smart contract artist (Hopefully the DAO helps to put us in touch with a talented/approved
engineer for the contract
- 4 to 7 days of designing, bringing the stories to life
- No budget needed, only time investment
- Launching the comics
- Performing the giveaways
- Sending 486 comics to NounsDAO for the reward program
- Getting ready for Nouns Comic #2 and the next tri-weekly cycle
- Deciding what to do with the fund
