This is a proposal to request funding for the Canon Swarm’s efforts for the months of June / July as well as part of the work that was done in May by @pab regarding development on pieces for the 1hive Canon Genesis Collection (See WTF is Canon & the 1Hive Genesis Collection) and paying Luke back the initial 2 HNY he provided to the Canon team’s domain in the Tulip Colony to begin development.
The creation of both the Genesis Collection and eventually the Canon platform will provide the 1hive community with a way of documenting and tokenizing relevant historical events that occur within the org. Not to mention a means of exposure for the DAO and its members to the wider, global NFT community which seeks to experiment and innovate in the areas pertaining subjects around digital content, ownership, documentation, etc.
We are asking for funds from the common pool to formalize the creation of the Canon Swarm and be able to continue the efforts on research and development behind the project.
There was a call to action on the previous forum post (WTF is Canon & the 1Hive Genesis Collection) which got some response from a considerable number of people interested in collaborating. We believe once we get the ball rolling, we can eventually involve these and/or more people willing to explore the different possibilities Canon may suppose to the DAO’s historical archive and asset reserve.
A payback to Luke is also included in this proposal since he provided the initial 2 HNY used for art development during the previous months.
On another note;
Previously, @Pab was pretty much the only one working on the project, he has been paying himself every now and then for the hours he’s been able to put into the project - but there wasn’t enough HNY to cover May’s worth of hours once he took into account the market dip we are all well aware of. See picture below
What are we delivering
Further development on the artwork for the different pieces that compose the 1hive Canon Genesis Collection - Storyboards, sketches, finished pieces if any in the form of high resolution artworks and their related written stories.
Documentation on research and criteria to follow for issuance, distribution, collection and curation mechanics for that collection as well as blueprints that may serve other kinds of collections which would be deemed fit for the Canon platform.

Amount of HNY requested: 35~
Ethereum address where funds shall be transferred:
1Hive Tulip Colony address
More detailed description of how funds will be handled and used:
***Price of HNY was $460~ as this was being written
Out of which:
2 HNY - Payback to @lkngtn
$752USD - Pab’s rest of May payment (1.6 HNY as of writing this)
Total to be distributed from every 2 weeks for each working member
(Takes into account the estimate amount of hours they will be able to contribute with for both June & July)
In the event of HNY volatility, no member shall be paid less than their USD equivalent. All accounting shall be done in USD.
5 HNY - EXTRA (for use in case of unexpected price changes / bounties or contributions from members not listed above)
not-so-smol DISCLAIMER: This proposal for funding considers work done in the past which hasn’t been covered as well as specific tasks to be carried out in the next couple of weeks and does not fully reflect the cost of having all of the different working groups listed in the picture above (with all of the members, even those who are listed as not fully onboarded) functioning simultaneously. As of now, development is focused on the creation of the pieces & written content which make up the 1Hive Canon Genesis Collection and it will take some time before all of the different working groups begin their activity regarding the project. Also, current calculations on the amount of HNY for each member of the swarm are approximate based on the amount of hours members have been able to predict they’d be able to put into the project, funds will be distributed accordingly every 2 weeks based on the actual work that was done and for this reason there’s the possibility that some may remain unspent, in which case it would be either used for unaccounted expenses or kept for next months’ payment rounds.
