Cerebral Gaming DAO - Proposal

Thank you so much for this opportunity! We’re very much looking forward to building out our ecosystem on the Harmony Protocol. We will do our best to always represent Harmony well, by selecting good projects with solid foundations. @papi you’ve made my day, man!

Being approved for funding and actually receiving funding for meeting the requisite benchmarks are different, right?

I’m not sure there’s much benefit in being overly restrictive with approving funding when projects still must achieve the specified milestones before each corresponding tranche is paid out

So the purpose of the “guild” aspect is that the members of the DAO play the games, are in a guild together, and the DAO properties within the games are owned by the DAO/guild and used by the DAO/guild to further each member/player’s personal earnings as well as the DAO’s ROI?

I initially thought this DAO was just about investing early in games (NFTs, in-game currency/governance tokens, etc), and that was cool enough for me. But the guild part adds another layer of potential revenue that I hadn’t even considered before. I’m assuming this is not a novel concept, but it is to me haha. And I like it

Who is Mr. M?

Exactly!

Mr. M is one of the founders of the new DEX OneFi.

This proposal fits best to the Launch grant based on the guidelines at Apply for Grants or DAO

Applications of each launch must have prototyped a feature-full product. Harmony helps incubate these founding teams with product development, fundraising, and talent recruit.
We recommend a $50K equity-free contribution each:

$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet,
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs,
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit,
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion),
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process).

Moreover, we recommend a 5-out-9 multisig account on Gnosis Safe with 3 governors from the project team, 3 governors from the project community, and 3 governors from Harmony DAOs – namely, ONEcommunityDAO, ONEdeveloperDAO, ONEincubatorDAO.

In all cases, we ask for 3-month exclusive campaigns with Harmony before more porting with other chains. We also offer follow-on investments – see 50 Investments ($20M) above; but, at the moment, you must have an outside, lead investor for us to match the funding terms. All codes, development materials and production assets must be fully open, preferrably with MIT or BSD licences; weekly updates must on sent on forum; and, all server deploys or mobile apps must be easily clonable.

Can we agree to the above terms?

@giv , We made a launch proposal after this one was declined at first. That can be found here: Launches: Cerebral Gaming DAO - #6 by clayford

Our metrics for success are:

Launch of token on mainnet - $10,000 (Our distribution is going to be unique, the first of its kind on Harmony) More info here: Cerebral Gaming Partners With Kuro Shiba! | by Cerebral Gaming | Feb, 2022 | Medium

Form a DAO with 5 out of 9 multisig wallet - $10,000

Release of roadmap and first DAO proposal with at least 100 token holders - $10,000

Full PR and marketing campaign (including micro-influencers, social media, and traditional media marketing) - $10,000

Reaching 5 votes on DAO proposals/investment avenues and 1000 token holders - $10,000

Please let me know if these metrics meet the Harmony teams criteria

Here’s another one of our updates! After speaking with you today in the twitter space it made me realize I needed to think about our mandates. Here’s a post with some more info! Doxxing, Mandates, Multi-Sig, and Governance Galore! | by Cerebral Gaming | Feb, 2022 | Medium

Our NFT launch has been a great success so far. It’s a 6 month funding campaign and we’ve already sold 11.5% of our total 150k NFT’s. We first tested our minting contract and staking contract on the testnet with the KuroShiba team. We also successfully launched our governance token.

Our DAO consists of 10 governors. We set up our multisig two weeks ago with a 6 out of 10 ratio.

We’ve released our roadmap, setup our snapshot account, voted on multiple proposals as a community, and now have 141 token holders.

Sorry it’s taken a long time to respond, but we don’t agree with most of your metrics of success.

Launch a token - yes
Multisig - yes
Roadmap - no
Full pr - depends
DAO proposal - depends

The purpose of cerebral is to be of service to games building on Harmony. These games are in various stages from land sales to raise money to actually building the game using unreal engine.

We need the last 3 goals to be tied to why Cerebral exist in the first place - to be of service to games on Harmony.

$10K after launching tipping/rewards system on mainnet w/audit
$10K after onboarding 500 web2 gamers through our web3 rewards system
$10K after 10k active daily users with full marketing campaign (cointelegraph, youtubers, tiktokers, promoted tweets, facebook gaming) and roadmap

Are these more acceptable terms for the latter three?

Tipping system

yes

onboard web2

How do you define and measure web2 gamer? And even after you onboard them, what are they going to play? We have many games under development but none are actually live.

10k daily active users

How are you measuring that? 10k dau over how many days straight? What is active? You need to define your terms and be more specific

Onboard Web2: Once we onboard them, we want them to be using the financial aspects of crypto. We will introduce them to GameFi but that’s not our focus for traditional gamers. They most likely won’t appreciate crypto games in their current form unless it benefits them financially. We want them interacting with the HRC-20 tokens on Harmony. Our tipping system will allow them to tip any HRC-20, take their rewards, and either hold or trade for profit. This also gives us the opportunity to introduce them to DeFi. Once these users realize they can make 10-200% APR on their rewards, it will create a grass roots movement. Friends will tell other gamer friends.

10k daily active users: we will be able to monitor traffic to our services on the backend and we can share that data with the Harmony team. Active meaning, using our tipping/viewing reward services within a 24hr period. 10k daily active users over a period of 30 days straight.

Your definition of Onboard web2 gamers is still super fluffy. Try to quantify it; make it measurable.

10k active over 30 day period straight, yes.

We’ve just partnered with a web2 gaming company to assist us with the software side of gaming tournaments. (Stat tracking, signups, prize pools, etc) Our goal is to onboard new users through weekly gaming tournaments. We can track that data through their website and our discord server. So far, we’ve exposed six web2 gamers to crypto from our first tournament alone. Those numbers will start growing as we host more tourneys. That is how we intend to bridge users over.

Cool, how does that benefit the Harmony ecosystem? You haven’t made that connection for me. Yes we need gamers, but we first need to have games. So if you bring web2 gamers over to web3:

1- how does that benefit Harmony? Be specific.
2- what the heck are these web2 gamers gonna be doing if there are no games to play yet?

  1. It benefits Harmony by creating new wallets/users in the entire ecosystem. In order for them to claim their tokens on our platform, they have to link their twitch accounts with a metamask wallet. From there, they will have to learn how to use a DEX. We’re already in partnership talks with a couple of DEXes on Harmony to help educate these users, once we do onboard them. We’re using Harmony as a financial service for the new users, not necessarily as way to get them into GameFi. Although, we will be pushing that as well, once there are games available. Growth is a good thing, no matter how you look at it. With user growth, comes more builders. There’s a direct correlation between market cap and the amount of developers there are on a chain. We believe our project can help with that.

  2. As stated in part 1, we want to be able to introduce new users to things like DeFi, staking, earning passive income. We’re trying to onboard people that have never used crypto or maybe they have on chains like ETH but saw how high the fees were and decided it wasn’t for them. Our project will benefit the ENTIRE Harmony ecosystem, through our partnerships, not just the gaming side. We’re trying to show the world how innovative income streams can be in Web3. We want to show users how crypto can free them from 0.1% APR at their banks and we believe gamers are a great demographic to start with. Gamers are already tech savvy. It won’t require much of a push to get them setup with a wallet and becoming beneficial members in our community.

Ok.

I want to see # of unique twitch accounts connected to metamask on Harmony network. That’ll be a good metric.
