Virtual Event Proposal
404 Cipher is a new touring metaverse crypto hip hop circus event aimed at bringing together the community in fun rap virtual games for all to get involved in.
This concept is in association with cipher.media and 404 collective.
CTRL. 4 artists who came together through the NxM community from 4 continents to take CTRL. Gatt, Fishbrain, Dedeukwu, BSK.
404. The collective that was spawned from the desire to debut 404 artists and connect them on the blockchain in a single historic decentralised collection of artists.
Cipher.media is a platform for minting your raps on an Artificial Intelligent beat and selling as an NFT. They host a 1 hour Cipher show on TokenSmart on Thursdays, and Church of Cipher in the Cipher discord on Sundays. The event commands a LARGE crowd of listeners.

The proposal is to fund a virtual tour across the different metaverse, hosted by CTRL and our 404 network, leaning heavily on the Cipher OG’s who are the backbone of the community.
The pinnacle of this tour would be the Somnium Space VR cipher events, which we will run every week in Somnium Space VR. On top of this, we will be using these connections to help artists host their own shows in the metaverse, with the Somnium event being the cornerstone of this larger 404 metaverse story that is unfolding.
Somnium Space VR
The main goal is to have events that are so dope, that the content made from these events go down in history.
The ultimate version of this would be to have all performers in VR. It would work to have a twitch DJ that has somnium open too and is part of the show fully.
To pull something like this off, everybody in the core Church of Cipher crew needs to be kitted out with VR, and we need things such as prize money funds, and to pay the main hosts and regulars for their immense efforts.
Benefit to NEAR
For many who join Cipher, it is their first interaction with cryptocurrency. This is of huge benefit to NEAR and NxM as it will be bringing artists through the door of many different calibers.
We will be tipping participants in NEAR which is a way to onboard to the protocol. We will make sure that all participants get set up with a NEAR wallet, exposing the NEAR community to a wealth of music artists and talent through which connections can be made.
As part of the show, we will also be shouting out NEAR protocol, and spreading the knowledge. There will be specific slots where we shill NEAR protocol, NxM, DAO Records, etc.
What we need
To support this endeavor, we are hoping NEAR would sponsor the event to make sure the core team CTRL are compensated for hosting the event, and that there is a sufficient prize pool to help bring people up to the mic.
We are asking for $5k per month in NEAR from NxM to fund this endeavor. The breakdown of these costs are as follows:
750 NEAR per month will be used to pay our hosts.
1000 NEAR per month will be distributed in prize money to contenstants.
750 NEAR per month will be used to market the event and create content and legacy.
