The project:This consist in a open-call/bounty to select people to write for the project.We will select 3 parcels in the Voxels Metaverse/Near Hub to be the inspiration for the writers stories.The idea is to create a storytelling about them and cross it with Near protocol.
Story requirements are as follows
True information about the parcel
at least 2500 characters (2 pages) in English
a mini bio (300 characters) of the writer and a photo to use
Each writer will be responsible for the text. And each writer is to be paid 100$USD
(We will have a project manager that will select and correct the stories; mint them on mintbase and NEArR Alexandria Library and send the texts for the magazine.)Admittedly, this is the first bounty I’ve authored and offered, so please feel free to comment with any questions. Thank you!
We hired @SkazOne as a manager of this project, and he could get 3 interested people in writing. One of them was not adequate for the job, and 2 remained. From these 2, which are @bitpixi and @markeetox, Bitpixi could produce the lore and mint the NFT on NEAR. As the project has as products 3 mints with 3 lores, we were unable to get the full amount minted, and have paid 100 usdc for only 1 writer who minted for now, and has to pay the manager. Skaz One ended up contributing and NFT and lore on NEAR, but is not being paid the writer’s bounties as he is already getting payment as project manager. Markeetox did not follow up on minting his NFT or sending in his lore. Skaz One will be paid 200 of the 300 usdc, since 2 0f the 3 stories/mints were delivered. We will have 200 usdc left over.
Paid to the community: (200 usdc still to be payed to project manager Skaz One)
Updated Project Timeline:
The project was not completed in the appropriate time, but has now been completed. Payment to project manager has not been completed as of yet.
Highlights and Final Products:
We could produce 2 NFTs from a new member of the community, Bitpixi and Skaz One… We made this bounty to stimulate new community members to be active on near blockchain. We had less success than we had foreseen, but I think we have a new project, with people that are new on NEAR just learning about the ecosystem.
The project was interesting. We got 2 good writers participating, who are Bitpixi and Markeetox. Bitpixi is community manager and designer from Voxels Metaverse (voxels.com) and Markeetox has alread a pirate project on ethereum with storytelling and he is adding NEAR Alexandria Library Lore inside his story. This is markeetox’s project: https://www.potos.io/ and his twitter https://twitter.com/potosnft. We could learn that for that project to succeed, we need to call people directly to participate, people that are already producing lore on metaverse. A third qualified writer could not be found, so project manager, Skaz One filled in. 2 NFTs were minted. And the unminted materials from Markeetox can be seen at the links previously mentioned, but was not ultimately submitted or minted as Markeetox couldn’t be contacted. It is my opinion that we need to teach more writers about specific metaverses, so we will have more qualified writers to choose from going forward. This would mean stepping up our onboarding efforts I would think. I waited as long as I could for more writers to step forward. We also need to make sure that our people follow through, but I understand that if someone cannot be contacted, they cannot be forced to do what they said they were going to do. All materials that were turned in are quality materials though and hopefully we can keep progressing with similar bounties.
