Gnarly News #2



Welcome back, everyone! You know how it goes, you're about to get stoked with what's happening in Gnarnia!

Gnars are a new way to fund extreme athletes

We prefer a world where kids aren't sold energy drinks by their heroes. So as a community of action sports enthusiasts, we've formed a DAO to rethink how extreme athletes get sponsored.

Gnars are NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain

Based on Nouns open source and CC0 artwork, they're stored fully on-chain with no external dependencies. Each one gets you a DAO vote and memberships are available at auction, forever.

Gnars are dedicated to supporting the artistry of extreme athletes

Public goods require new ways of sourcing funding so Public Nouns DAO will focus on identifying and funding projects whose outputs are practically useful, non-excludable and non-rivalrous. As Nouns DAO has done, Public Nouns will harness the power of memes as a tools for co-creating shared identity, with a focus on public goods. Check out their manifesto here.

A thread👇🏼🧵

— Public Nouns (@PublicNouns) September 29, 2022

Nounlets, mentioned in last weeks newsletter, have been a hot topic in the Nouniverse as of late. Inspired by Punk4156’s tweet, NanoNouns have been born. NanoNouns subdivide Nounlets even further, creating 10 NanoNouns per Nounlet. The experimentation around Nouns and decentralized governance is getting more and more interesting, what will be next? 👀

That’s all for this week! Keep proliferating and stay Gnarly ⌐◨-◨
