funded $30k to complete the initial $75k tranche: Ethereum Transaction Hash (Txhash) Details | Etherscan


This DAO received 1M and they continue to receive scholarships? Are you serious?

Thank you for the funding Li, confirming that it has been received.

We wanted to provide a recap of the highlights of what we have accomplished during our first three months

As Li mentioned, we have received the first tranche of our funding (75k) and have made the decision to not pay our signatories, team-leads, contributors, etc until we have created multiple revenue streams for the DAO. For the first 40k of funding our intention has been to stake our ONEs, when the multi-sig permits we will do so, and the remaining 30k are in stable coins (Harmony MultiSig: 0xC5768ee2630d7FCDAC7c2d4B19a3a3621f6F8E6E, Gnosis: 0x71b9B24BA832b5656d1f0eC774521748109682A6)

We have partnered with Harmony to run the scholarship programs, which are funded separately on a per conference basis.

Details on our scholarship programs can be found in our recaps here:

It is worth noting that we have sent 10 hack teams between 3 conferences and all 9 hack teams WON MULTIPLE prizes and bounties.

Our bigger focus though has been on building out the DAO infrastructure while we quickly scale and decentralize. In our first three months we have:

⁃ Launched a basic NFT collection on Harmony through NFTKey

⁃ Launched our basic Blu3 social tokens on Harmony

⁃ Hosted a Social Token 101 Workshop (Blu3 DAO Social Token 101 & Minting Workshop - YouTube) and a De-Fi liquidity pooling workshop in conjunction with Black Leaders DAO

⁃ Transitioned scholars into Web3 jobs (ie. Ann marketing for Defi Kingdom, Steph as Dev Rel, JayCee as Community Manager, etc.)

⁃ Recruited a team of 35+ core contributors for our 15+ working streams including on-boarding, scholarship, hacks, DAO, social token, partnerships, PMO, legal/governance, tokenomics, treasury, marketing, & regional LATAM, Europe and Asia (Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.)

⁃ Created an on-boarding form and detailed contributors guide which serves as live document pointing to which roles are available, and differentiatiating between our tiers (community member, contributor, advisor and ambassador) (

⁃ Created a Blu3 DAO website:

⁃ Hosted bi-weekly DAO alliance call open to the public (Creating sustainable systems for growth. - YouTube)

⁃ & have been active participants in the Harmony 1DAO alliance, formerly DAO Ops call

Currently working on:

-Hosting a Blu3 Day Womxn in Web3 Career & Networking Day in New York (

-Sending scholars to ETHNewYork Hackathon mentored by our Blu3 Hacks team

-Finalizing which Harmony compatible DAO workflow tool(s) to use (wonderverse, charmverse, dework etc) to automate workstreams & contributor bounties

-All team leads responsible for the design and execution of their business model- creating multiple streams of revenue

-More details on each teams specific deliverables in our contributors guide

-Developing v2 of our tokenomics, splitting between economic interest and governance

-Implementing best strategy to assign different roles for our community tiers (weighted social tokens, NFTS, badges, POAPs etc) and gating our discord

-Creating MVP DAO constitution (including guidelines on governance, our path to decentralization, tokenomics, treasury, expense, code of conduct, mission etc.)

-Researching on different legal structures for the DAO

-Tracking Harmony-specific user acquisition metrics via our scholarship & onboarding program

We will keep the community up to date as we continue to build within the Harmony ecosystem. We welcome any sincere questions, comments or constructive feedback.


Correction. We were committed $1M, and have received a total of $75K to date.

The scholarships are part of what Blu3 DAO does to bring more women and non-binary to the web 3 space, by providing them with this opportunity, education, training and hackathon experience. In return, the scholars also contribute to the ecosystem by hacking and developing marketing/ promotional materials and ambassadorship to Harmony.
We do the Blu3 scholarships well because we have a team to plan, manage, train and execute the program - which includes detailed planning and logistics, kick-off meeting, mandatory events, training programs, strategy sessions, close out meetings and surveys. All of Blu3 are working on a voluntarily basis to give this opportunity to scholars.


Thank you @lij . Much appreciated, on behalf of all of Blu3 DAO.


It makes you wonder why you need money from Harmony if you’re so good, isn’t it? Let @sunny4earth know we’re still waiting for an update on her failed vegan project!

Is there a reason you’re filled with so much anger and cynicism? Rome wasn’t built in a day - and it does take many failures before you succeed. One of my favorite quotes “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” :smile:

While I hope your criticism is coming from a place of genuine care and we always welcome constructive feedback for improvements, please exercise some level of respect, support and empathy. I do not condone online bullying here at Blu3 DAO.

With regards to money, while we don’t need the money for our mission - it is only fair to be paid for the work we’ve been pouring into Harmony’s ecosystem. And honestly, our Blu3 core team has worked 60+ hours every week since January for no pay to the team or our treasury so I hope you can learn to appreciate and give thanks instead.

The scholarships granted were given to the scholars consistent with Harmony’s mission and direction. As for Blu3 DAO’s grant, it certainly does support our mission for bringing more womxn into the web3 space. Harmony has been a true ally for sponsoring and empowering women leaders in this incredible space and we are forever grateful for it. :blue_heart:


Can you please help me understand how someone like your sister Novell (former financial advisor) yourself (giving women financial advice) are in need of so much outside financial advice from others on how to be self sustainable?

I just searched the state databases of NY and CA. Neither of your names are registered LLC owners in those states. So can you tell me about this MoneyBoss LLC?

Its founders are your sister Novell, Her husband Al and yourself.

How is it that Novell is a former financer, director, etc but has no license in the state of NY to give financial advice?

Neither do you!

It is all too convenient that AI is now an employee of Harmony ONE.

All 3 of you running Blu3 DAO that appear to have no REAL financial background. AI former EE of northwestern mutual. Thats it!

I did find pole dancer on your profile!

You really believe people like myself and other professional accountants and financial advisors believe that YOU were making 50% and upwards per month in profit as you state on

HOWEVER, you have no idea how to create a single dime of revenue for Blu3 DAO?

@lij @frwrdslosh @Sam @dpagan-harmony

You all got deceived by professional fraudsters!

LI- are you seriously funding this? Did you vent these people or lookup their credentials? I can assist with databases CPAs can use.

Its time to call out where the fraud has been coming from!!

@Point7C @Sbae we need to demand answers as investors!

For the record, neither my sister and I are financial advisors, nor do we provide financial advice. I am an actuary while my sister was in private equity.

As someone who is running for Community DAO council, I would appreciate more empathy and constructive feedback from you. We are not perfect and welcome actual tangible constructive feedback to improve the overall ecosystem.

I do admire your passion for Harmony. We are in the same boat and want what’s best for Harmony. Let’s work together and get through this storm! :facepunch:


Is it normal/ethical to promote your personal business (not registered anywhere apparently) with someone’s else money?

Link here

With all due respect, MoneyBoss has nothing to do with Blu3 DAO.

With all due respect, that’s BS

Incorporating in NY or CA has unfavorable tax conditions, also something I thought you might be an expert on.

Where are you incorporated?

Is it a coincidence that your sister’s husband is the only one who bought an NFT from Sunny’s failed project?

/Edited because someone is trying to hide it


So you just admitted that or any affiliated parent company is not registered or licensed in the state in which you are giving these services?

That fact is this is a fake company! You lied to @lij or he was aware at the beginning that was fake. You have ZERO reviews on google. Cant find one single review out of all the HUNDREDS your twitter and website claim to have helped.

Nice try at dodging the question about your brother in law as well. Who is a governor on Nomad DAO that YOU approved of within the hour.

I dont see any comment from YOU stating that he was your brother in law. Where is Blu3 DAO ‘radical transparency’ that you preach?

I am not here to tear you down. I am here to expose fraud. Thats what forensic auditing looks like.

Why are my posts being flagged? No curse words. Straight facts.

I want an answer. The community isnt going to let you all keep running from this!


Just made a small edit to your post.

You’re making wrong assumption. Harmony did not get deceived.

Blue3 DAO is an organisation consisting of two sisters and a husband to one of them + bunch of others that either keep on riding with them (sunny) or some who somehow believed their shiny buzzwords :butterfly:.

The husband happens to “work” for Harmony as an employee (hired beginning of April with fixed term till end of July) in unclear capacity beyond acquiring Sunny’s giraffe NFT and asking people to keep being engaged in forums.

Blue3 DAO is the single DAO that keeps on receiving funding even while supposedly all DAO fundings are stopped. Combine it with unclear nature of the DAO itself, are you telling me this is a coincidence? Poor Harmony is getting deceived. Or maybe it’s meant to be like this huh :thinking:.

Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, but no, it’s a DAO! lol

I don’t bother anymore because I see through what’s happening. With this DAO and dozen of others. You won’t get proper response, same way Boris Polania never actually answered. I am just waiting until it all implodes eventually. Most likely December this year.
