Harmony Bakery Proposal for Project Y

Name of Project

Harmony Baked Goods & Cafe (Harmony Bakery)

Mission

Transparents NFT project supporting the $ONE Harmony ecosystem. Eventually governed by holders. Multiple support for elected, unelected validators, and collectors.

Proposal overview

Harmony Baked Goods & Cafe is an NFT project supporting both two parts elected and unelected validators,one part nft staking, and a dash of gamefi.
Harmony Baked Goods & Cafe is an NFT project with 75% of the funds invested over multiple validators, 10% to a $ONE single stake protocol through Kuro, and 15% to the team to continue building out the platform. Types of the NFT Baked Goods will be governed and voted into either elected or unelected validators; if elected, holders will receive split portions of the $ONE rewards from each epoch. If the validator is unelected, the holders will receive Ingredient NFTs, allowing them to then “bake” and mint their own NFTs of the Baked Goods.

Team

Sofa
Project Lead, visionary behind the bakery, as well as active Harmony community member, creator of Jewel Juice, and many other things. 6+ years working in tech startups and companies, Sofa looks to bring some of the trust and innovation into the Web3.0 side of things. Transparent projects, with unified vision.

Toto
Contractual Solidity Dev. Toto is the lead solidity dev behind Kuro. With their expert knowledge on both smart contracts, NFTs, staking, and more, they were the perfect architect to help with the Bakery.

John

Contractual Frontend Dev. John is the peanut butter to Toto’s Jelly. Expert front-end dev that works exceptionally well with Toto, it was only fitting to contract john to assist in building out our front end while Toto worked on the back.

Persimberry
Contractual Design. Persimberry is the bread to the Kuro PB&J. Working closely with both Toto and John meant the perfect mix and keeps everyone in check. Persimberry has long time experience in design and working with John and Toto, so they have become the perfect trio to help build out the Bakery.

Bread
Another artist heading up the international treat offerings. Also new to the scene, Bread’s artistic designs are much more inspired through the Singaporean culture and treats not seen as often in the western world.

Morgan
Artist, activist, and baker. Morgan is Sofa’s partner, and the initial artist for the Bakery. Drawing the sweet treats, and coming up with new designs from actual baked goods made in the kitchen. New to the web3.0 scene, and just getting their feet wet.

How do you plan on selecting elected/unelected validators?

Hey! Thanks for the great question! For the initial launch, I will be reaching out to a few different validator leaders. However, I would love to get this into the community’s hands as well to help identify and select both willing and wanting validators. We will also allow the already delegated NFT’s the option to vote on transitioning to a new validator with a governance vote too, though the time frame between each vote has not been figured out just yet.

I do not want the votes to be too often where validators are getting large delegations, then losing them immediately, but I also do not want the community to feel trapped in certain validators either. Currently figuring out the best amount of time to find a good middle ground.

I hope this answers your question, if not I am happy to discuss more of the plan with you!

@Sofa was my very first friend on H1, and to this day remains one of the most sincere and trustworthy persons I know. Harmony Bakery is an awesome idea, not just cause it’s thematically amazing (with absolutely ADORABLE art), but because the vision and intention behind it is great and healthy for the ecosystem. Hyped to see this project succeed!
