NounsDAO in Taipei Blockchain Week

Taipei Blockchain Week 2022

TL;DR

  • One of the biggest gaming markets in the world, with amazing and affordable developer talent.
  • There is already an official government agency set up to focus on web3, an environment perfect for blossoming web3 growth.

This prop looks excellent. The video is very well done and demonstrates that you can create content, which is an important part of event proliferation. These events have proven to be an effective and timely part of the proliferation and DAO growth. The Taipei Blockchain Week will likely become more established as an event. The website and branding is good, and in line with other NFT event standards. On-going updates about the current event status; as far as speakers and attendees is recommended.

The only concern is timing. Specifically if there is construction involved, but perhaps that is easily handled. It seems like this would need to be funded in a fairly expedited way, which may shorten the feedback window. Looking forward to hearing more and watching the progress.

This looks great to me. Well written prop, art looks fantastic, opportunity in Taiwan would be great, and team looks strong. From what I can tell, this seems to be a go! Nice work. Hope it works out and you get funding.

the mock ups look great!

-when would you need the funding to confidently execute on everything given the timing?
-where are the noggles accounted for in the costs? what type are you planning to use?
-is it standard to have to pay for a speaking slot? this is the largest ask at $6000 USD

Hey @FOODNOUNS, thank you for the feedback on the content! We definitely believe we are capable of producing great content with our team’s experience. Timing wise, definitely on the tighter side but we’re ready to go with designs and production company already locked in. Here’s a video to better show the production plan: NounsDAO Taipei Blockchain Week - YouTube

Hi @bradq thanks for the feedback - welcome you and all Nouners to come over to Taipei for the event!

Thanks @Oni for the feedback!

  • I think ideally within 1 week or at most 2, we have everything ready to go to make it happen, we have a video demo here of how this might look like NounsDAO Taipei Blockchain Week - YouTube

  • Great catch, I was originally hoping to ask people who did it for other conference to share the supply but no luck yet. Just got a quote on this for fresh ones, will add to proposal! We’re looking at red paper ones at 2.4 each around 350 of them. (open to ideas here!)

  • Yes, usually people get speaking spots via sponsorships, that is the minimal amount charged per spot, totally open to add the DAO as a sponsor with this but didn’t want to overstep - open to suggestions on what’s best practice here!

cheers!

I believe @BigshotKlim have some paper noggle for events.

Is there a list of nouners that you will be inviting / have invited? I see there’s $3000 factored in for that, would be cool to know which nouner will be attending.

Thanks for the feedback @Wideeyekarl!

yes, I got a quote from @BigshotKlim on the noggles!

I’ve extended the invite to @skateordao from other people’s recommendation and hope he can come - but open to other suggestions in case he cannot make it!

In the sad case we don’t end up getting a nouner to attend & speak, will definitely refund that portion of it!

Can you provide more info on who this accommodation is for? The panel speaker?

Thanks for the feedback @wiz! yes the accommodation is for the speaker/nouner that is flying in, still looking for the person who is interested in coming!

Airfare to Taiwan from Europe/US/Australia generally cost 2K for those dates, and budgeting 1K for a week of lodging. If no speaker from nouner can attend, that chunk of that budget will definitely be returned.

The actual Nouner you get to speak is important but on this whole this looks like a lot of fun and I love the mockups.

I like your writing style, can pack everything simply. Certainly the most interesting is the mockup that gives the reader a real idea of what to create next.
Interesting to wait for the execution later. Good luck :smiling_face:

For context, this is a conference my DAO is organizing and executing - can leverage our 40+ people staff 70+ DAO members/contributors and event volunteers to really highlight NounsDAO. Really excited to activate in Taiwan for the first time! Happy to add nounsDAO logo as a supporting organization on our event website for more visibility and exposure as well
