Updated Project Timeline:

After the May hackathon the VR DAO took awhile to find its footing. Last month 3 of Incubadora DAO’s council members became VR DAO council members to help revamp it. After a month of effort, 3 more council members were onboarded – a sound artist with strong ties to VR and 2 visual artists.

With the help of these members, we are implementing bounties, re-engaging with the community and preparing several projects for the upcoming weeks and months.

Highlights:

** Onboarded 3 new council members and had a meeting to explain the protocols involving the NEAR Forum, Sputnikdao and the relationship with the Creatives DAO. Those council members are:

  • nearestchico.near
  • tolga.near
  • naes.near

** Supported for the Incubadora DAO POLIEDRO Artistic residency

** Developed a challenge for the august hackathon

** Reached out to those who got support during the may hackathon and those engaging with new projects in the past few weeks. One of the highlights is Vr slotCar racing meets rogue like !¿!¿ - #19 by kurtisAikins

** Established a permanent bounty to get feedback from the community.

** Published a bounty to support the community in creating an accessibility guide for VR, with several positive replies from artists with and without physical disabilities.

** Created a bounty to reward articles who verse about color experience, with an extra incentive if the creators are willing to transform the article in a recorded or live (for a future workshop) video presentation.

** One of the new council members made a proposal for the creation of Motion Landscapes in VR, which will be used to create several NFTs to sell on the VR DAO Mintbase store, plus implemented in 3XR and used to promote the VR DAO social media channels and the Near Protocol.

** Created the VR DAO Mintbase store and minted the Poliedro Residency Icon, which was featured on the Mintbase instagram account.

** Revamped the forum guidelines and descriptions

** Revamped the TG channel and upped the engagement with the community there. At the moment, the TG channel has 39 members.

** Established 2 bounties for the creation and management of the VR DAO twitter and Instagram accounts, with a positive response from one of CUDO DAO members. Both channels were created and, during the month of September, several targets will be met.

** Several sputnikdao payout requests from new and old council members, plus payouts from those engaging in bounties.

Learnings:

*** The council of an important DAO must be balanced, so several boxes are checked, like expertise, community engagement, administrative work, etc.

*** One of the most difficult tasks when engaging with the community is to filter the most relevant proposals. Everyone’s attention is needed.

Next Steps:

**** The VR DAO will continue to support the POLIEDRO Residency in the month of September.

**** For the month of September and October, the priority of the VR DAO will be to promote and support high quality VR Projects.

**** Will continue to look for more council members, ideally with a strong VR background and/or interest.

**** Will expand its scope and influence in the community, using the new instagram and twitter accounts to push for more members and general engagement.

Very informative and definitely proved helpful to get a snapshot as to where the VR DAO is now!

Feeling inspired about the possibility of what more devs working for the DAO would mean in terms of the creation of new VR Projects, and hope to see how maybe the Curators DAO or CODAME Guild (cc: @starpause) could serve as a collaborator for these endeavours.

Looking forward to seeing your September budget when it’s ready.
