Create and manage a cooperative NFT minting platform using DAOs.
Functions desired for the cooperative:
- Onboard and vet members
- Decide on percentages and amount of funds to be received and managed collectively
- Receive collective funds from NFT sales
- Distribute collective funds to members
- Provide minting, collecting and display tools aligned with cooperative values
- Build on open source tools and release as open source
This challenge welcomes proposals addressing one or more points of the above list, as well as adding points to the list of functions desired.
We will be submitting our own solution, and one of the key values we are looking for is interoperability and composability.
Ideally, this challenge will result in a toolset available for use, allowing independent groups to build several coop instances, with each being able to choose which parts are more appropriate to implement for their unique goals.
Stateless Art Cooperative:
STATELESS aims to be one of the first completely cooperative run NFT minting platforms. Artworks published through the STATELESS contract will be acquired from artists to be sold. Artworks are acquired with the understanding that a significant portion of the sales will be distributed equally between the members and the remaining for the continued maintenance and development of the site.
Each STATELESS member will also be able to mint new works using the STATELESS contract. These works will not be acquired by the funds of the cooperative but the sale will be distributed in the same way as acquired works.
Selection of the works to be acquired will be at the discretion of each member but consulted with through a deliberation process with all other members before the work is minted.
After an artist’s work has been acquired, that artist has the possibility to become a STATELESS member and continue minting new works using the STATELESS contract.
New members will be added over time, with a limit to the number per year (exact figure still to be determined). Full membership means the ability to initiate an acquisition of an artwork by another artist who is not yet white listed on STATELESS, as well as the above mentioned ability to mint using the STATELESS contract.
STATELESS aims to be blockchain agnostic, with its first instance built on the NEAR blockchain.
Tools we will be using on NEAR:
- Sputnik DAO
- Mintbase SDK
- Custom revenue distribution contract
Our DAO is currently deployed on testnet, since we will be connecting it to Mintbase testnet as we develop our solution during the hackathon. At a later point we will deploy the polished solution on mainnet and can connect to a mainnet DAO.
For now we have three team members in the testnet DAO council. This way we can do the initial testing with a lean council. Other team members might be voted in as the need arises during the testing phase.
