Impactful DAO

Impactful DAO

Introduction:

We are a passionate international team with varied experience in marketing, IT, charity founders, crypto, sustainability, public speaking, entrepreneurship, and between us we have lots of skills and contacts that will be beneficial for the development of this DAO and the community. The DAO will create great CSR for Harmony, develop adoption and grow the community focus on impact. Currently, our work is already been viewed by millions of people weekly and we want to connect this audience to crypto + sustainability + having a positive impact, we would like for the store to accept ONE. One of the immediate ways we will do this is with our online store that gives a percentage to our DAO and percentage directly to the cause & this is one of the reasons why each of our 6 governors are situated on a different continent. We have chosen Harmony because we believe in the sustainability aspect and believe we can scale our project in conjunction with the ecosystem. Another example of the indirect impact this will have on Harmony is through PR, once we develop our projects and partners, we are aiming for international exposure through news and social media. We are founded with effective altruistic principles and we will monitor impact and output often to see opportunities to improve.

Mission statement:

Utilizing our experience and network, we want to connect impact to crypto through the Harmony ecosystem, with the potential to develop digital solutions that benefit communities, animals, and the environment. Through all aspects of impactful, we will directly support important causes on 6 continents, through a % that is decided by the community.

Our team:

At this stage of the process, we would prefer not to publicly reveal our identities but can happily do so privately to one of the Harmony core team members. We can do most of the work in-house, considering our diverse skills (Website design, marketing, PR, graphics, video editing, partnerships, business development, entertainment etc), reducing the external costs of hiring externally. To note, our team already has multiple businesses that may be able to implement aspects of our DAO/Harmony into their current work. We would also happily share our previous experience and work.

Introduction to Governors:

Our goal is to utilize our network to get influential people in the movement to become ambassadors for impactful, so we will add more people to this list (that will benefit from impactful/Harmony as partners. We also have close connections with China and plan to expand our reach there, with the potential to develop partners too.

Benefits to Harmony Ecosystem

  • Growing adoption in Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America and Australasia, while also developing digital communities passionate about crypto and having an impact.

  • If the payment system with Harmony is ready, then we would like to support ethical and sustainable brands to get on board, utilizing the ecosystem.

  • Considering our focus on doing good through any digital solutions that we create. CSR (Corporate social responsibility) will be important through our PR/social/News and hopefully widespread. We can include Harmony branding on press releases & any digital material that is produced, hopefully reaching millions of people in new communities that may join Harmony.

  • Considering we’re getting millions of views each week, we will develop an online store that gives back directly to charities & continues the sustainability of the DAO. The aim is for the online store that accepts ONE, therefore this will help grow the users and transactions of Harmony. % of each transaction will go towards the specific cause that the user chooses. This will introduce Harmony to large new audiences, some of which include; charities, philanthropy, environmental, eco-friendly customers etc.

  • One of the main purposes for this DAO evolves around impact; we have various ideas for dapps that can be developed in the future once the full strategy is developed, some of which include gaming, yield farming, marketplace, offsets & widgets. The development of these will indirectly correlate with the growth of the Harmony Ecosystem and we’ll be reaching new communities/audiences.

  • Our real-life project partners will hopefully use Harmony and promote it in their marketing.

We will grow the community and merge with new communities, for example;

  • Partners in developing countries.
  • People involved in charities that want to support.
  • Digital nomads.
  • Individuals that are interested in giving back / social causes.
  • Environmentalists.
  • Influencers.
  • Activists / Actionists.
  • Investors / Crypto communities.
  • People interested in sustainable development

Targets:

  • Reach 5 million people through digital media, videos, partnerships, PR, and real-life events to connect people with sustainability and crypto.
  • Generate a sustainable amount of income through the % of all aspects of impactful.
  • Develop 10 events that focus on sustainability + crypto + harmony.
  • Create partnerships with the potential of sustainable/eco-businesses to use Harmony.

6-month goals:

Step 1 - Identity areas of impact, governors’ meetings from each area/continent, develop strategy, website, graphics, materials, and areas of impact.

Step 2 - Implement the above and start to develop partners, while also reaching out to our influencer contacts to collaborate with us (social media - promoting our DAO, projects, Harmony).

Step 3 - Develop the community more through our network/marketing expertise. Find a way to implement measurable impact of impactful and organize partnerships, as decided by our team.

Step 4 - Discuss with team/community about dapps - opportunity & potential for impact.

Step 5 - Continue to develop the online store that accepts ONE, Identity and distribute % of profits to each specific cause (Voted by governors or community)

Step 6 - Adapt strategy and projects if needed - recognize new areas for impact.

Requested Amount:

$ 181,000

This will fund the following work for 6 months, developing the store, communities, events, and starting on creating digital solutions.

Considering we are founded on effective altruistic principles, we will continuously measure our impact and output to make sure we’re on target.

Months 1 - 3

  • Create initial governor meetings, focusing on strategy, goals, and vision. Each continent/governor will decide on a specific area of focus that should fit into our overall strategy.
  • Develop the website in-house, continue to grow the social channels - the aim is to increase TikTok views to 10 million a month. (Connect to .one domain)
  • Reach out to our contacts, partners, and initial influencers, to partner/be featured on our website/store. We have a unique way to attract them to collaborate.
  • Create graphics, videos, logos, illustrations, infographics in-house that can be used as templates.
  • Speak with partners about % donation/investment to a specific cause, relating to each continent (This will be later used for CSR + promotion of our project + Harmony).

Governor allocation: 6 governors, 3 months, 10hrs/ week per person. The lead governor will do up to 20 hours. (Each governor will be doing their respective work on our project that is agreed at the start). $55,500

Months 4 - 6

  • Continued governor meetings - assess current progress and change strategy if needed, depending on which areas are having an impact.

  • Start to implement impact - through partners, influencers and companies.

  • Develop the second sustainable digital solution (First was the store) we will decide but examples are widgets, dapps.

  • Create events that promote our projects, Harmony, impact & sustainability in general, these will be shared with the press and on social media too.

Governor allocation: $55,500

Additional internal or external work: $30,000

10 x Events: $25,000

Digital communities

  1. Social media - We’re experienced in creating and growing platforms, so we can develop from our existing network, while also reaching new audiences. While we’ll have multiple social media platforms, the focus will be on Twitter (Crypto), TikTok (Products/reach), and LinkedIn (Professional).
  2. Videos and graphics will be shared to create awareness about our DAO/the work we’re doing and our vision, developing the online community.
  3. There’s also potential to create online events (Conferences, fundraisers, interviews etc)

Impact / real life

  1. While our digital strategy will impact real-world issues, events and communities, we aim to hold events in the future.
  2. Due to the sustainability and our project’s percentile donation impact, we’ll have various supporting partners creating innovative solutions. Real-life events may be created evolving around these specific projects. (For example, tree planting, educational workshops, film screenings etc)
  3. The Dapps we want to create have real-life solutions, focusing on our 6 main areas of focus. We aim to inspire communities, youth and women specifically within this movement.

Digital solutions:

We have multiple ideas for digital solutions that would grow the Harmony Ecosystem, our community & increase the % of the impact we have. We would prefer not to share too much information publicly at this point, but will happily share more details with a Harmony team member if needed.

  1. Impactful Store should be fairly easy to set up - we just need to integrate ONE as a payment. We have the draft store ready to publish. Once this is set up, we hope to direct our millions of weekly views towards the website, which will also have more information about our project, impact, vision, team etc & will indirectly support the DAO / impactful projects.
  2. Widgets - We would like to implement a simple widget that can be used on other people’s websites, such as partners, media, or influencers. This will allow people to connect with our project and Harmony easily.
  3. Browser extensions - if developed correctly, these could be fairly basic but have a big impact on our projects/partners/Harmony.
  4. Apps - While these will take more effort, they could also have a big impact.
  5. Games / Yield farming - Effective way to grow the community / Harmony ecosystem & each aspect will be giving back to our DAO / projects through %.

Thank you,

Impactful

Hello @impact

Thank you for your submission for a DAO grant.

Our guidelines regarding the minimal considerations and amounts for DAO grants are explained in the DAO Funding Guidelines. Please refer to those when submitting a Grant request.

Please note that we are currently revising the Harmony DAO Bootstrap program. We believe that a “Minimally Viable DAO” is one that has accomplished, at least, the following three items:

  1. Established a multisig wall with a 5 out of 9 signature requirement.
  2. Held an election for those 9 signatories that includes at least 12 candidates and over 100 voters.
  3. Has issued an “Membership Token” of some sort (a DAO NFT, for example)

When preparing your revised submission, please take these guidelines into account.

Following up with a quick update as well:

All approvals and proposals for DAO Bootstrap Funding are still paused. This is a temporary measure. Please do not let this dissuade you and your team from building.

note: this comment is not an approval of this proposal

Hello, @impact

The Harmony DAO Ops team has decided to decline this proposal.

We have found over the past year of DAO operations that the organizations that don’t start with a large, dedicated community and a goal to fund themselves tend to have very low success rates. They tend to have a hard time recruiting additional community support and tend to bring limited value to the overall Harmony ecosystem.

The bar to receive a DAO bootstrap grant is now higher than it has been historically. In order to receive a bootstrap grant going forward, DAOs will need to evidence a high level of transparent reporting, robust community involvement and a business plan that reflects a commitment to self-funding. Further guidelines are being finalized and should be released in the coming week.

I apologize that this process has been lengthy and drawn-out and I appreciate yours and the DAOs patience. Harmony and the DAO Ops team wanted to exhaust every option before responding with a declination.

Do not let this dissuade you or your DAOs passion to build on Harmony. Harmony is integrating new tools to help build a robust DAO ecosystem. I’m looking forward to your success.
