The 4non Creator Fund
In December, an anonymous donor donated 50 medium Worldwide Webb apartments to us, and the 4non Creator Fund was formed. The agreement was that this creator fund would go towards attracting creators towards the Worldwide Webb.
With the current floor price of medium apartments and the value of ETH, this creator fund is valued at around $450,000. This is a fairly big incentive fund for our community, that has not been properly utilized yet.
I am proposing regular competitions that will run for a minimum of one week, that come in form of “Discord Events”, and are promoted on our social media channels to incentivize community activity and promote user-generated content.
In my experience, there are four pillars to a successful community. Vibes, art & stories, devs & builders, and educational & entertainment content.
I would suggest running weekly, or monthly competitions around these four pillars.
Community vibes are important because they promote fun, and fun attracts outsiders. Community vibes can be fostered by things such as memes, music, audiovisuals, organizing regular events to build community bonds & more.
- Worldwide Webb Meme Week
- Event organization incentivization
Education, entertainment, evangelism
Educational and entertainment content are important for word-of-mouth marketing on the internet. I see a huge untapped potential for YouTube, Twitch, Music & Written form content around the Worldwide Webb that generates traffic.
- Twitter Thread incentivization
- Medium Article incentivization
- Youtube content incentivization
- Twitch stream incentivization
Art, Stories & Lore
Good lore is critical to any game because it plays on the fantasy of its users. Education and entertainment spread the word, the vibes glue people to the community, but the art, stories & lore will make them fall in love.
- Art contest
- Lore contest
Devs, Builders, Entrepreneurs
To incentivize devs & builders to create things, especially with the quest engine and SDK we have coming out in the future, this should be a big focus. This is likely the core of the developer fund because the infrastructure and the core activities will be created by these actors, and they are the people that others rally around.
- Themed apartment building competitions e.g. “Medieval”
- Tooling grants
- Business grants
- Sprite sheet bounties
Medium Apartments & Proper incentivisation
We have 50 medium apartments. To have proper incentivization, giving away a medium apartment every time someone wins something is not sustainable in my opinion. Ideally, there are multiple prizes, and multiple people can win something. I would like to discuss possible solutions for this.
