Over time, many incidents have occurred both internally and externally. In order to determine the direction we should take moving forward, we intend to establish a mid-to-long term task based on our mission.
This is our mission and mid-long term tasks that I think we should be focused on. We would like to hear holder’s thoughts. Please feel free to share any ideas or suggestions you might have.
Mission(Expanding Ghosts Project’s universe)
Our ambition is to broaden the Ghosts Project’s universe by intensifying holders engagement and fostering proactive involvement from our current holders, thereby cultivating a vigorous and flourishing community.
Mid-Long Term Tasks
Research other projects and forge partnerships
Examine other projects and businesses to gain valuable insights and identify best practices. Simultaneously, explore opportunities for strategic collaborations with other projects and companies.
Archive Ghosts Project’s universe
This process not only ensure the preservation of all elements of our project but also allows easy access for both current and potential holders. Incorporate engaging narratives and multimedia elements to ensure holders experience.
Integrate a Rewards System (Bounty Program)
Implement a reward system for active holders. Based on the reward system, we will continuously motivate existing holders to be more active and can attract new participants
Enhance Communication Channels and Organize IRL events
Alongside enhancing our web3 communication platforms for regular and transparent interactions, organize IRL events to provide opportunities for holders to connect personally, strengthening the sense of community.
Measurement and Improvement
Frequently evaluate and analyze the progress of our mission and mid-to-long term tasks based on key performance indicators(KPIs). Use metrics such as holder engagement rate, new holder rate, and feedback to identify what’s working and what isn’t. Use these insight to refine your strategies and maintain our path toward achieving our mission.
Research and Strategic Partnerships: To enhance our project, it is crucial to analyze the setbacks faced by entities to the DAO that we are researching, currently all those 'DAO’s are struggled to maintain NFT floor prices. Emphasizing on thorough research and forging strategic partnerships is essential. However, the projects under consideration by the DAO council need to effectively meet key performance indicators, such as user acquisition, which is currently underwhelming. For example, is Doodles 2 really going well with Doodles DAO going for it?
Content Archiving and Prioritization: Content archiving, such as documenting fragments storyline and past events, can attract new users. However, the current volume of content may be limited. It is essential to assess the relevance of archiving at this stage and recalibrate its position in our mission hierarchy to ensure that the council’s focus remains on more pressing objectives.
Rethinking the Bounty Program: The previous art contest showcased impressive contributions. However, the existing bounty program needs revamping to align with our primary goal of expanding the project’s universe. The program should be structured to incentivize active participation through tangible rewards. Ensuring transparency and fairness in the evaluation process is paramount. And really, ‘expanding’ the Ghosts Project Universe somehow should be the key point of the bounty’s program.
Enhancing Community Engagement: While communication channels have improved, our community appears to be insular. The DAO council must foster an inclusive environment to encourage new members to actively engage. Facilitating diverse participation is vital to fulfilling our mission of fortifying community bonds.
1. CC0 should be demolished.
As an artist, and someone who is working at artist industry. CC0 seems very bearish. Also, personally speaking what’s the point of getting the partnership while our project is CC0? They could just take the ghosts picture, and use in their project by just not using ‘Ghostsproject’ wording to it.
Copyright should be kept by the users, or even just belongs to team like RTFKT did before releasing their rights to hodlers. I just don’t see how will CC0 project could be able to get the partnership with other project, or even small web 2 company. They could just use it, and make profit for it. If the mid-longterm mission for one is forging the partnerships.
2. Art-art should not be the key factors of the ‘bounty program’
As i’ve seen our community goes for it, we’ve got too much of ‘art’ people getting rewards for it.I do understand art ain’t only limited to ‘drawing’. (I personally think my badge is art too ) But previous bounty program, or main events held was too focused on art-art contest.
Art could be go to writing novels, making comic, or even making some dope motion picture, or even making ghosts as 3D. I do think that next ‘bounty program’ should be as open as possible with samples to it. Or even having separate voting session (like voting for art / voting for writing / voting for comic) could be an answer for this.
I must gently disagree with the statement, ‘Current all DAOs are struggling to maintain NFT floor prices.’ While maintaining or improving the floor prices is important, the primary objective of a DAO is to fulfill its mission. For example, can we truly say that Doodles 2 / Doodles are underperforming solely due to the Doodles DAO?
We’ve made KPIs to make sure our councils and WGS are on track. The usage of KPIs and using KPIs for performance evaluations were two different matters, so we used KPIs internally. For example, one of our short-term objectives was to ensure that our floor price remained above our minting price. To pursuit of this goal, we have been actively engaged in buying up the floor pieces on the market.
While it is true that our current content volume might be limited, it doesn’t negate the necessity of archiving. Presently, we are utilizing the Mirror platform for this purpose, but our plan is to expand to other platforms and enhance the formality of our archiving process. Ultimately, we envision this evolving into a museum where all our content is displayed.
I concur with your view on the importance of maintaining the council’s focus on pressing objectives. we aspire to expand our universe by amplifying holders engagement. We believe this expansion should not be driven solely by the working groups and council but by a collective effort from all our holders.
The Bounty Program serves as a tool for gauging the activity levels of our holders. Art contest is just a part of the Bounty Program. As I previously mentioned, we firmly believe that our universe’s expansion should be driven by a collective effort from all our holders. This belief underpins our use of the Bounty Program, which we employ to align our KPIs with the goal of encouraging holder activity. We’ve been incentivizing active participation based on The Bounty Program through initiatives like “Office Hours”.
I concur with your view, that’s why we’ve been actively enhancing our communication channels and we are committed to creating a more open, transparent and engaging community for all our holders. To start with this idea, we launched “Hermes” so we can connected in-between Kakao-talk and Discord.
It is truly sad that the “Hermes” is no longer available due to the API issues.
Given that our DAO lacks a formal legal entity, utilizing CC0 has greatly facilitated our ability to form partnerships with other projects. For instance, we have recently established a collaboration with the PARAVESE, as they are interested not just in utilizing “images” but in fostering shared creativity.
In due course, we will have a presence in Gangnam within the PARAVERSE landscape, where we plan to launch new events.
I understand and appreciate your concern about how a CC0 project can form partnerships with other projects or even with smaller web 2.0 entities. Please be assured that we are working diligently to create a convincing use case that will help address and mitigate these concerns.
We acknowledge your concerns. we are open to altering the structure of our art contests or even considering whether these contests should be a part of our future initiatives. Our objective is to find the most efficient methods to continue expanding our universe.
