This proposal is to pay for past contributions on the Canon Swarm.
Since the inception of Canon, @pab has been working uninterruptedly to keep the project afloat and meet the expectations of the Genesis Collection, but as he hasn’t received any funding since ~May, he hasn’t been able to spend as much time as he’d like to.
I’d like to also point out that not only he has been working as the Art Director and illustrator for the project, but in the absence of a lead or project manager, he left his comfort zone and has also dedicated himself to conducting research in NFTs, Harberger Tax, etc. that he considers may be useful for the project (his research is spread between this post and the Canon Server).
Then we have @jomalon, which is new to the hive, but since he entered he’s also been non-stop contributing to the collection whenever he could. I’m personally a bit ashamed or embarrased at the fact that we promote ourselves as the future and after ~2 months he hasn’t being paid yet, and yeah we all here know that’s kinda how DAOs work but he doesn’t know that and I want him to taste what DAOs, crypto, blockchain and all this has to offer.
During this time they’ve been designing and animating the Genesis Collection, AFAIK the first 3 scenes are almost finished (see the draft below).
The only purpose of this proposal is to pay them for their past contributions to the project. We’ll focus on a proposal to stay funded for future contributions later
- WTF is Canon & The 1Hive Genesis Collection
- Canon Bounty payment ideas and general tokenomics/NFTs/Bounty ideas
- Canon Discord Server
- Canon funding proposal (first draft) (this contains a lot of information about the work and research done)
- Latest draft of the first 3 scenes of the Genesis Collection
We’re going to use Canon’s sub-domain on the Tulip Colony, which is managed by the Tulip Swarm DAO
15HNY (roguhly 5,100 USD at the time of writing)
All funds are to pay for past contributions, they may be immediately reimbursed or vested, however the community likes better.
Posting here first for discussion before putting up the proposal on the HoneyPot.
A huge thanks to @metaverde for the help and support.
