We have been developing a project for Manifold on Optimism that includes 6551.
I’m working with DAOhaus Developers – creators of Moloch v3, and we received a grant from Alchemix to create a Moloch LP Cooperative, on Optimism, where the NFTs own Soulbound Moloch Shares – allowing them each to have governance and equity over a community owned treasury.
We released the Alchemix collection in time for the we <3 the art contest. The objective is to create DAO Owned Liquidity, building veVELO and alETH/ETH LP, as well as alUSD/OP LP.
We think that Optimism and Base would be good locations for a project like this, because of the affordable transaction costs, and because of the synergy with Velodrome | Aerodrome.
Manifold is super useful, because your Contract Extensions allow us to set conditions for ApproveTransfer – which would prevent an NFT that had already burned its Moloch SHARE to also sell the NFT, since burning the Share would already pull the equity from the treasury.
Dekan and I are both interested in creating a Manifold Studio App, so that other artists could launch collections to fund community owned treasuries using these tools.
Here is an example of the Moloch RDF Summoner:
Manifold also works great for this, because the Core Contracts allow for expansion over time. The DAO could be given perms, and then be in control of its own membership expansion.
We’d like to apply for a grant from Manifold, to build out a Moloch RDF App for Manifold Studio. Does Manifold offer development grants?
I think it would be interesting to see what type of communities artists form when given the tools to do so, and I think that this offers a new use case for NFTs on Optimism and Base.
