The Unstable Lab DAO

The Unstable Lab DAO


Since the 2000’s, the monetary policy , made the inflation took off, enlarging the gap’s between wealth and poverty in Latin America, bringing even more people to poverty. In 2019 6.5% of Brazilians were classified as extremely poor, and 24.7% as poor. In 2019 The southeast, the most populous region, accounted for between 20% and 27% of the poor population, depending on the poverty concept used.

Brazil’s level of inequality is among the highest in the world and using Web3 as a tool me can bring transparency, reestablish democracy, and leverage efiiciency with blockchain applicabilities.

In Brazil less than 5% of the graduating art students from public universities knows something about blockchain. They could use this tech to experiment, improve and expose their expression. This tech still under a dome that hardly will reach those students if there’s no agents changing their perspectives of interdiciplinarity. The Unstable Lab initiative was created with the proposal of being an edtech and infrastructure provider for Latin American artists that wants to be part of the web 3.0 revolution.

The art market for small artists has been so bulish to this students that the majority are trying to survive sacrificing their mental health doing double jorney of regular works and classes everyday. This cause a notable problem of retention in college. The statistics says that in UFRRJ art students, or will give up in the middle of the college, or has been delaying the graduation for 2 or more years because of costs and problems with basic revenue. The class of fine arts at brasilian public colleges are still the same since the 80’s. If you are a newly graduated art student in Brasil you already started with disadvantage at the labor market.

Our long-term goal is to transform this project into the first DAO of UFRRJ – Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, bring alternatives for 500 artists, from the southeast area initially, which are trying to live from art. Teaching from the basics of blockchains, to generative coding that can evaluate their artistic production to a point, that they can discover how their works fit in a Web3 world and have some support to achieve their goals in this new world. A first step to follow the ONE way.

Together and mixed:

The courses will be ministred twice a week, with synchronous and asynchronous classes that will guide students through a leaning process during which they must master the basic concepts of blockchain technology, precautions and Web3 topics. Each week students will focus on two new topics. The asynchronous classes will focus on courseware PDF’s and vídeos recorded and produced by our governors and contribuitors.

The synchronous classes will be hosted at Fábrica de Startups space every week before Harmony Hangouts or events. In those events, the invited speaker of the week will start a new topic with the coworkers, students and enthusiasts who will be able to join na discuss about the topic and ask questions.


In the first phase of the project all of the initiative income with NFT sellings will be injected in the liquidity pool for the first year then vote the next strategy. The artists that mint with us as ambassadors at MADNFT’s will be teach about the solutions and investiments that you can do with Harmony protocol stakes and permanent loss.

Manage the artists to grow the ecossistem with an workflow incentive aiming to scale the number of minted pieces per day at the MADNFT’s platform.

Provide infrastructure with smart contracts and NFT’s solutions working with those artists for companies or partners that wants to join the Web3.
