My name is Glenn. My partner Alicia & I are both traditional artists who own and operate the Fractal Visions art collective focused on educating other artists who are entering the NFT world. I also have a passion for educating and onboarding new people to Optimism & NFTs in general. I myself have been studying blockchain technology since January 2021 and implementing smart contract deployment art distribution using Optimism network over the past 3-4 months. I was able to present our project Ganland during week #7 ReCap here > Week 7 OP Demo Day
We have brought many people to the Optimism NFT sector with multiple large scale projects active now.
(10,222) NFTs from 2 of our projects directly donate 100 % of secondary sales to Public Goods through Optimism using the RETROPGF.ETH (Public Goods Donation) address. Our total deployment for the summer of 2022 will encompass over 35,000 NFTs as a type of grassroots initiative to onboard and introduce people to Layer 2 Optimism network. I was introduced to OP token governance from Gitcoin.
Quadratic funding for grants, bounties, and initiatives can help create radical change and the power of blockchain technology attributing to governance systems is an important step in developing this framework as an example for other industries to implement in the near future. I am an early pioneer when it comes to blockchain protocol specific to NFTs and have helped with Beta testing for Guild.xyz web3 security in Discord & Lit protocol token gating integration for Shopify recently. Tools which can greatly improve a DAO community in development or any other project. We are only beginning to scratch the surface of what the public goods funding can achieve when it comes to the NFT & Gaming sector.
Actually I am uncomfortable with this proposal; it is not about the content of it, They posted this proposal just a day ago from the snapshot and they included snapshot voting after 25th, and it was like we are bending the rules.
I know OPUser well, s/he already serves the forum and the community, deserves more, like mentioned before committees are something experimental and we should get include NFTs in this experiment, in any way. I will use my votes as ‘FOR’
I’m voting for this proposal since it seems the committee has a relevant background and interest for reviewing the NFTs and gaming category. I would also like to see a committee for this category so I’m fine making an exception for the snapshot being created a bit after the deadline.
Thank you Linda, we appreciate the support. I think I can speak for everyone when I say we are very grateful for the flexibility with the submission date. The way I see it, there should be no excuse for us not to follow guidelines going forward as we have our core group together now for this endeavor.
