Achievement information about the DAO

Our long term goal is to create a sustainable community for creatives in Africa, and since the inception of youngfresh dao, we have been able to achieve some milestones, that put us step further in achieving this mission.
One of the major highlights of our community is the building of W3 music dapp which is still in process, this dapp will provide income for small scale musicians in Africa .

W3 music is a market place that would serve as a means of income for small scale music creatives ( producers & songwriters). A stop shop for players in the music field for all your music needs. ( beats, lyrics, and so on.) As an artist, I can get all I need to make my music,from the comfort my home .

  • What category does your DAO fall under
  1. Art
  2. Music
  3. Culture


We are creating what will serve as a massive onboarding tool for creatives in the web2 space to earn on the dapp. This dapp will help small scale independent creatives earn a steady income from their craft , thereby keeping them in the space for a long time

For this proposal we are focused on supporting active artists in our community and building our dapp to testnet.


**Project 1

|Description:| ( W3 Music)
Project Overview :

W3 music is a market place that would serve as a means of income for small scale music creatives ( producers & songwriters). A stop shop for players in the music field for all your music needs. ( beats, lyrics, and so on.) As an artist, I can get all I need to make my music,from the comfort my home .

With W3music dapp, songwriters and beat makers can mint their works on chain and make it available for sale.

For so many decades in the music industry, songwriters don’t usually get enough recognition and credit for their works,We are going to change that with copyright through Nfts, powering the smart contracts.

*note: W3 music is one of its kind on the web3 space , it serves a unique value, there’s no dapp that currently serve the same feature as W3 music on the web3 space.

Take a little time to visualize this for a second, I will use a songwriter as an example

Imagine me as a songwriter, I have a lot of composed songs in my library, but I don’t know who is going to buy this songs, because the musicians in my vicinity don’t feel the need to employ a songwriter,which is quite discouraging for me.

All I have to do is make a recording of the songs I want to sell, not necessarily a standard recording, W3 music dapp will make it easy for artist to upload various qualities of the recording. I could make this recording with my phone and post it on W3 music dapp.

with a lot of musicians looking for songs to buy I would be making income from writing songs at the comfort of my house, I don’t even have to be a professional songwriter to sell songs, anyone with a brief song idea can record with his phone and put it up for sale.

while also getting credit for writing this songs as transactions will be powered by mintbase and recorded on Blockchain.

On the other hand the artist that buys the song can have access to singing, performing the song, he also gets real value for what he is buying. ( steady income for me as a songwriter, real value for the buyer).

This illustration also applies to a producer/ beatmaker, that posts his beat for sale.

Problem area that the project is addressing

*Lack of exposure for independent artist

*Insufficient Compensation

  • Difficulty In sourcing music services

*low sales of NFt transactions in music dapps built on near blockchain

*lack of African diversity in Web3 space

Problem of low sales and transactions in Music Dapps built on the near Blockchain

Most music dapp built on the near blockchain don’t really get enough transactions and usage, this is because a lot of creatives most especially in Africa are not yet in tuned with the idea of music NfTs and music streaming on web3.

To attract Web2 creatives to the web 3 space. we have to give them something that can solve their immediate problem. which is basically income. W3 music dapp is going to be the game changer in Web3 music, by creating a Dapp that helps creatives make money easily, this will organically attract them to the near ecosystem, as they will be getting real value for their craft and also spending more time on the dapp.

We received a proposal from an emerging dao under the creative ecosystemIntroductory post, to make a video content that talks about the usage of different dapps built on the near blockchain, we intend to support this Dao as they are a new evolving dao in the ecosystem, click here to view details of the proposal Multimedia presentation .
Budget : 100$

Council fee : 800$ , to be shared equally among 4 council members.

Total Budget : $4,300

  • **What is the goal of the DAO’s objective?
    Our short term goal for this project is the completion of W3 music dapp and onboarding of 100 real users to test the dapp on testnet before it launches

Future Plans

Our vision is to get 10000 active users in 12 months, I currently reside in lagos nigeria, the creative hub of Africa, We will integrate a business plan that allows producers and songwriters users to get rewarded for every transaction made on the dapp.

We will host a fund raising campaign for investors to support producers and songwriters on the dapp, funds raised will be used to brand and promote the artiste( shooting a standard video , promoting their songs , buying some equipment for producers that cannot afford). Basically funds will be used to support music creatives on the dapp

We will have an extension of the dapp, where premium users can chat and interact with each other.

Aside from selling beats and songs , We will also have a segment where other players in the music field like instrumentalists, graphic designers, videographers can create a profile with their works and get jobs from people who will be in need of their services, something like a linkdin for musicians

Total Amount Requested: $ 4,300
