The proposal aims to create a weekly curation competition featuring 5 fragments generated by the Botto protocol. Each fragment will be accompanied by a short description and title that connects them. The primary goals are to stimulate discussion around Botto's generated fragments, encourage the artistic and creative expression of the DAO, promote the use of the new favorites feature on botto.com, and allow DAO members to participate in a curation competition.
To understand the background of this proposal, it's important to note that Botto generates various art fragments over time. However, these fragments often lack context or interpretation. This proposal seeks to address this by organizing a curation competition. The motives behind this proposal include generating more discussion around Botto's creations, showcasing the creative side of the DAO, and incentivizing the use of the new favorites feature on Botto.com while also incentivizing voting and curation withing the first 48 hours of the weekly rounds.
- Once per week create a dedicated "Jokerace" page to govern a curation competition at the beginning of each weekly round.
- DAO members will curate their selection of 5 Botto fragments, providing a title and a one-paragraph editorial for each. (Open for the first 48 hour of the weekly round)
- Participants will use the favorite feature on botto.com to curate their selections.
- DAO members submit their curated selections on the Jokerace page.
- DAO members will vote on their favorite curation on the Jokerace page. (Open for 48 hours after submission period ends)
- Winners will be rewarded once at the end of the competition.
The budget for this competition is 6,000 in $BOTTO tokens per curation competition
1st place - 3,000
2nd place - 1,500
3rd place - 750
4th place - 525
5th place - 525
Criteria of Success
The success of this proposal can be determined by the following criteria:
- Receiving 25 or more submissions for the curation competition
- More activity and conversation around Botto’s fragments
- More users voting within the first 48 hours of a new round
One drawback of this proposal is the necessity for DAO members to use two different platforms (botto.com and Jokerace) for participation. This could lead to frustrations and a learning curve, as Jokerace may not be familiar to most DAO members.
Another is that in order to keep cost low for the contest runner and the participants, they will have to use a Layer2 network as Jokerace is an onchain governance tool. Most are unfamiliar with how they operate and how to transfer funds and this might create a barrier of entry for some
