CRYPTOBAEBES‘ “ARRIVAL”: AN INTERACTIVE EDUCATING ABOUT CRYPTO & NEAR

As cryptobaebes we are a part of the Mintbase community who have been supporting our journey right from the start. We are the first users on the blockchain to ever create redeemable experience tokens and we are bringing performative approaches into the cryptospace.

Here is our Linktree:

This summer from the 06.-08.08.2021 we are going to perform at the Wilde Möhre Festival in Germany in collaboration with Wildeverse.

For this occasion we have launched five NFTs which can be experienced live on the festival. In conjuction with this, we will be performing in the Maze that our immersive theatre company Dream World UG (https://dreamworld.space/) has built, the Wildeverse station and the Spa on site to invite visitors to engage with the artworks and our characters.

Our main goals are:

  1. EDUCATING PARTICIPANTS ABOUT CRYPTO & NEAR THROUGH REAL-LIFE USECASES

  2. FINDING WAYS TO EXPLAIN THE METAVERSE THROUGH A PERFORMANCE

  3. CREATE ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTIONS AND TRANSFORMATIVE IMMERSIONS INTO THE SURREAL WORLD OF CRYPTO

  4. PROMOTE NEAR AND MINTBASE BY HANDING OUT QR CODES WHICH LINK TO OUR WILDEVERSE NFTs

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

We are every machine, every lost file, every apparat and hungry for your data.
Are you ready to play?

The Cryptobaebes and Micho arrive upon the Wilde Möhre land amongst a plethora of hippies, music, little food stands and trees. The Cryptobaebes function as the embodiement of the ethereal realm, with heavenly bodies in non-binary forms, craving human sensation and lost ideas. Their strange companion Micho is an external „crypto-medium“ who onboards new NEAR-enthusiasts through provoking curiosity in playful interactions.

As a trio they are contacting visitors to give them an experience of touch, connection, absurdity and de-coding human desires.

WHAT WE NEED FUNDING FOR:

MATERIALS:

Costumes: we collaborate with local Berlin designers like LuiTrash and Ophelia Overdose to bring the Cryptobaebes aesthetic to life

  • Ca. 300 - 600 NEAR

Buisnesscards / QRcodes: to give visitors a physical piece of information to find the NFTs online. They are also a memory that they can take home and re-visit the experience

  • Ca. 150 - 200 NEAR

LED Bluetoothmask: displaying coded messages

  • Ca. 160 NEAR

Whiteboards and pens: to have little visual workshops running

  • Ca. 50 NEAR

TOTAL: 660 – 1.010 NEAR

We are looking forward to bring the cryptobaebes and crypto-usecases to life and appreciate the support and feedback

Hi @Cryptobaebes this is a pretty awesome proposal, we have seen already what you can do, and we’re looking forward to those LED masks!

We also have a maze in VR in cryptovoxels, next to our Wildeverse parcel. Maybe we could plan a connection between the VR and the RL space somehow?

Regarding the budget, this is over our normal budget, so we will need to request additional funds before we can approve your proposal. Please hang tight and we will keep you posted on that.

I also think we should go ahead with the proposal. Cryptobabes has been actively taking part in the Mintbase community and have already proven they can deliver. :+1:

Agree! I already asked for the additional funding so we can top up our DAO with enough NEAR tokens to be able to approve this.

We can‘t wait to bring this project to life!
It would be amazing if we could connect it to the VR space or maybe do a livestream to fill the virtual realm and add a different layer to it.

Let‘s talk about it more over a call,
Many thanks!

@chloe and @mecsbecs please take a look at our requested ammendment to the July budget: [APPROVED] Createbase Guild Budget - July 2021 - #4 by lenara

Would be great to be able to approve this proposal by the cryptobaebes, plus the onboarding team budget for the next festival weekends. We have a lot of awesome activities planned: NFT workshops, collective art making, real items (beer, t-shirts) bought and redeemed as NFTs… this will become a treasure trove of experience to be shared and benefit all kinds of future onboarding events.

Very excited about your work as I experienced your Wildemoere labyrinth. Loved the concept, I learned you may be involved in our NEAR event (details coming soon). Hope to see more of your work and enthusiasm to bridge the current gap to crypto and web3. :star2: :blue_heart: :star_struck:

@Cryptobaebes we can now approve your project :tada:

We are especially happy that you will have a photographer and videographer to capture the experience and help share the magic happening at the festival.

It’s also great that you will be onboarding NEAR wallets as well. Not that it’s that hard a task to give people free crypto, but coming from the Cryptobaebes this experience will surely be special for the festival attendants.

You can submit a payout to our DAO for the amount of 810 NEAR - this covers your materials for Costumes, LED Bluetoothmask and Whiteboards and pens. The QRcodes will be provided to you at the festival by the Createbase team.

Looking forward!
