Sustainability Plan for Atocha Game Guild

The intention of the guild to exist is to build a community hub for puzzle game enthusiasts, builders, and stakeholders. By maintaining a decent level of transparency within the guild, we want to move from centralized management to a decentralized one while the Atocha Core Team will be focusing more on strategy, tech development, and governance.

From the start, the whole project is intended to be sustainable through our Sponsor mechanism. In short, the mechanism is:

  1. Providing sponsors like brands and companies to utilize puzzle games to promote their business

  2. The customization of puzzle games can be integrating their existing website to hide clue pieces, hidden numbers within their product serial number, chatting with their bot to get clues and etc.

  3. The sponsor will need to purchase ATO to be locked in the protocol as the prize for the winners.

  4. The creators will get a commission from the sponsor to work on the customization of the puzzle (or it can be done by the sponsor)

  5. The increasing demand for such service will generate an economic flywheel for ATO as more coins will be locked as a prize pool.

  6. The formula to get this to work is to:

  7. Increase the production and quality of the puzzle game created

  8. Onboard more brands and businesses to participate

  9. Onboard existing game studio to integrate their game with the protocol

  10. Professional curation team to curate the puzzle game for suitable brands and businesses

Other than the Sponsor mechanism, there are a few mechanisms that we are planning to implement in stages based on the development phase we are in.

  1. Atocha will recommend Puzzle Game Dapps that launch on our protocol to have NFT sales. The sales will then contribute to three pots: the puzzle game creator, the guild, and the treasury. The rate has not been set but we are looking at a 90% (creator); 5% (guild) and 5% (Treasury) split. The reason that both guild and treasury have a split is to ensure the sustainability for the guild and Atocha core team to operate and serve the community. Note that the rate will be different depending on the service required from the Guild and Core team as well.
  2. Secondary market royalty is also a part of the revenue stream for the guild and Atocha Treasury. The rate will be similar where 90% of the royalty of the NFT will be going to the creator, 5% to the guild, and 5% to the Treasury.

DAO Planning

There will be two DAOs to be formed. One is for the community and the other one is for the protocol’s governance. The community DAO will hold the funds that are intended to be used by the community members like creators, community leaders, bounty hunters, and game masters. On the other hand, the protocol governance DAO will be focusing on the protocol and mechanism upgrades.

Community DAO

  • On AstroDAO: atocha-game-guild.sputnik-dao.near
  • Hold NEAR and other Near Native Tokens funds (ATO)
  • Funds source: NFT revenue, grants/sponsors
  • Voting for utilization of funds to different purpose groups
  • Voting by Committee members/Councils
  • DAO members: puzzle creators, puzzle game players, bounty hunters, game masters, Atocha Ambassadors, etc (as long as you are part of the community, you are welcome to join)

Protocol DAO

  • On Native Network (Atocha Protocol)
  • Governance based on ATO coins holding and roles
  • Voting for protocol upgrade (tokenomics, game mechanism)
  • Voting by Committee members/Councils/token holders
  • DAO members: ATO coin holders, the core team

@kimzwarch please how do I submit an application for game masters I’m interested in the program. I followed the atocha community from the start and I participated in their quiz program where I earned some cool Ato coin for myself. I would really love to join as a game master. Thanks

Good evening! Could you please please pay attention to Atocha ambassadors from the ru-speaking community? Lack of information and any AMAs in the native language. Thanks

You can DM me at TG (@worldmod7)

For now, we haven’t kickstart the puzzle campaign yet. But we will be doing a continuous quiz campaign starting next month which would require the help of the game master. Of course, opening up for more localized game moderating like in specific community group virtually or physically will also work as well.

Indeed, still in need of more translated content for most of our native language community groups. But feel free to approach me to clarify on any info.
