When it came to choose a blockchain to mint the hackathon projects as NFTs, NEAR emerged as a strong choice. Since it’s a Proof of Stake and carbon neutral chain, it fits very well the sustainability theme.
I suggested to the organizers to use the Mintbase platform for the minting, and therefore would like to ask Mintbase DAO for some support.
One of the themes for the hackathon mentor’s presentations was “Metaverse” and this generated a lot of interest. So besides the minting, I also proposed to set up a metaverse virtual exhibition to expand the reach of the event. The exhibition build will be inspired by the physical setup concept, and also reflect the theme of “sustainability” and “Kaunas Europe capital of culture 2022”
Wallet creation for the 32 participants in the hackathon (0.2 NEAR each)
** neardrops provided by Mintbase
Wallet creation for the event and minting contract deployment (this contract can be reused later for future NFThon events that are planned for other cities, and will be great to mint in a dedicated Mintbase store because this includes as well a perpetual 3xr virtual gallery)
Set up of virtual exhibition in the Voxels.com metaverse to accompany the physical exhibition in Kaunas:
** custom building of the space (parcel loan will be provided by outinside.eth): 5 hours;
** creation of voxel assets according to the exhibiton theme: 4 hours;
** preparing and hanging NEAR chain NFTs with images, videos, links, credits to all teams: 2 hours;
** documentation, screenshots, videos to be used on promotion: 2 hours.
online mini-workshop and guided minting session: 2 hours.
Yes, I like this line-up, up for a talk with @lenara if there are details to get discussion. Also don’t know if we should loop in the Raiz Vertical project since they are focused on this kind of subject.
The hackathon participants asked me for a mini-workshop and guided session to make sure they will do it correctly. It involves adding several splits, forever media, etc so I think it’s a good idea. I can do a technical walkthrough, and also cover questions like what makes sense for their use case regarding number of editions, pricing, royalty percentages, etc…
Do you think I can expand the budget to include a 2-hour online workshop for them? Besides the team members, also the Minister of Culture of Užupis will be attending, so I think it’s a great opportunity to demonstrate all the nice features of Mintbase with a practical example, minting cool artworks focused on sustainability.
