CUIP-001 - Ecosystem Grants - Round 1 [Pass]

Abstract

Building a game with the ambitions and scale of Crypto Unicorns (CU) is an endeavor that takes a big community. In addition to our core team, we work with partners around the world to bring their specific expertise to the world of CU. In order to support their efforts and align their motivations over the long term, we propose to grant them RBW tokens from the Ecosystem Fund.

Motivation

From the outset we knew community partners would be important to the project, so we created the Ecosystem Token Fund. This fund, defined in the Whitepaper, is set at 100MM RBW tokens and is intended to engage and align our partners’ long-term contributions and commitment to our amazing community.

Details

As we engage partners, we will define the contribution made by each group and propose a token allocation we believe represents the team’s contribution. We will use a framework that considers a number of different parameters to guide our allocation proposal. Some developers will deliver core technologies or features the game depends upon while others will deliver auxiliary features that round out the experience. Some contributors will spend a short time with us, delivering on a specific initiative while others will contribute over a longer period of time. And some allocations target problem sets like bugs instead of specific developers. This framework will guide our proposals, but may not foresee all considerations so we expect to adjust the framework to meet the changing demands of game development.

These partners are critical to delivering the amazing CU game experience. This token fund is part of the DAO so it is up to the governors of the DAO to approve the distribution of the Ecosystem Token fund. Here are the specifics of the first Ecosystem Token Fund grant proposal for your consideration.
