Please explain how this Mission will help accomplish the above Intent:
The BanklessDAO community is a ready and willing audience for the Optimistic Vision.:
- Our members believe in and work towards being Bankless, i.e. living life as self-sovereign individuals while contributing to the collective good…
- The community is global, with presence in over 15 language regions around the world…
- There is strong value alignment between the Optimism Collective and BanklessDAO; decentralization, collaboration, and a new economic paradigm are at the heart of our shared ethos.
Education and media are the core products of BanklessDAO.The crypto community recognizes us as the leading organisation in this regard. A signal can be found in the results of the latest Gitcoin Beta round , where the community signalled us as one of the top providers in the Education category by number of unique votes.
In order to accomplish Intent 3, we have structured the campaign as a journey through the Optimistic Vision. Phase 1 will cover the core principles in relation to public goods and collaboration for impact, Phase 2 will provide more detail on Optimism and shine a light on exemplar projects, and Phase 3 will share perspectives on governance and the pathways for achieving our shared goals.:
