How will this Delegate Mission Request help accomplish the above Intent?

  • Grow the Superchain
    • More unique contracts will be deployed across the superchain due to increase of NFT contracts and experiments deployed
    • Contest winners trickle down wins into:
      • creating more on chain projects
      • supporting other artists
      • engaging in protocols & other projects such as DeFi
    • Guaranteed interaction from >50 unique addresses considering even low estimations of NFT minters
    • Encouraged creation and usage of on-chain tools in activities involved such as use of submission tools and contract deployers
  • Improve the Consumer Experience
    • Creation of a space where artists, creatives, collectors, and protocols continue to love and appreciate the art (say no to isolation!)
    • Establishing a place of contact between on-chain users and crypto projects and protocols looking to have more eyes on projects
    • Creation of an in-house design service where artists can submit bounties created by anyone, may they be in Web2 or Web3
      • Making the collective self-sustaining as projects pay for expenses in exchange of art, design help, and promotion
    • The mission request is a direct engagement of consumers and users of on-chain use cases (!!)
    • WeLovetheArt has brought unique addresses on to the chain, whereas this initiative advocates for the repeat transactions of these new addresses
    • Retain WeLovetheArt submitters and increase transactions of projects housed in the OP chain
