WTF is MetaGame & why Optimism should give us a grant

Please explain how this Mission will help accomplish the above Intent:

  • We have a newsletter & a podcast that goes out to >12,000 people interested in learning about Web3, DAOs & the bigger picture
  • The conference we’re organizing is likewise focused on “coordination, regeneration & the bigger picture”, its a gathering trying to bridge related web3 communities with their non-web3 counterparts as well as bring at least 10% of complete newcomers to learn about DAOs & ReFi
  • The latter will also feed into the former, all the content will get recycled into posts & the full “DAO Design Track” will be turned into an online course
  • The full DAO Design online course will feature Optimism as the main or only sponsor & encourage people to launch DAOs on DAOhaus on Optimism
  • Optimism & the Optimistic Vision will get featured in all of this content, consumed by >3000 people, twice a week for 3 months
  • Optimism will get everything that comes with the top tier sponsorship package for MetaFest (Logo on the website, all promo materials, media & aftermovie, logo in swag bags & at the venue, logo on the livestreams, workshop slot, private chamber & a table in the dungeon (coworking) for your org, promo booth for your project (only one), 16 ticket NFTs (worth $2400) and epic swag bags.
  • Also everything that comes with the top tier guild membership in MetaGame (your news regularly in our newsletter, your news on our dashboard, a twitter thread, podcast interview etc. etc.)
  • There will be a playbook about building on Optimism, written & distributed through our channels
  • We would also create a page for Optimism inside MetaGame to permanently stay visible for discovery by newcomers

What makes your Alliance well-suited to execute this Mission?

  • We’ve been doing this for 3 years so we have a proven track record of shipping content, organizing events & onboarding newcomers into the ecosystem
  • Everything we do at MetaGame is geared towards onboarding new people into the ecosystem, helping people start DAOs & teach them about the bigger picture
  • Philosophical alignment: like Optimism, we are very much focused on DAOs & Regenerative projects. We’re building a public good & our long term goal is to build a decentralized society

Please list a critical milestone. The critical milestone should be a measure of whether you’ve made best efforts to execute what is outlined in this proposal or not. If you fail to achieve your critical milestone, your grant may be clawed back.

Milestone #1: Put on a great conference

  • Finish organizing MetaFest & make sure everyone has a great experience

Milestone #2: Optimism up

  • Write & distribute the Optimism playbook
  • Create the Optimism page

Milestone #3: Launch-a-DAO

  • Produce a full DAO course from the DAO Design Track content

Milestone #4: Regular publishing

How should Token House delegates measure progress towards this Mission: These should focus on progress towards completion. Including expected completion dates for each is recommended.
