MoFY - The Museum of Fine Yams
Hi everyone. As many of you will have noticed, Yam DAO has been making steps into the NFT ecosystem. We recently hosted a hugely succesful live metaverse artist exhibition, Other Realms, and have been forging strong links with communities in this space, including metaverseDAO and NFTX.
Yam DAO has built a reputation as open finance innovators and leaders of the DeFi movement, but the community isn’t just made up of developers and financial engineers. We’re also artists, videographers, designers, writers, and above all else, art lovers!
Today we have set out our ambitions and vision for how we can truly provide value for the NFT ecosystem, applying our expertise and experience from DeFi to build powerful land permissionless services for users around the globe.
MoFY (The Museum of Fine Yams) is a broad term covering all our efforts to provide value in this space. We’d love to open this up our vision for MoFY to the wider community, and this forum post is an open invitation for feedback, criticism and brtainstorming!
There will be a full discussion regarding MoFY vision and strategy on the next community call, this Thursday 17:00 UTC in the community Discord.
Here is our vision so far:
NFT Marketplace/ Hub
Provide a seamless experience where artists can create, exhibit and sell their art in novel ways. This also provides a potential revenue stream for artists and the DAO that can be used to further scale the organization and incentivize active community participation and engagement with the platform.
Metaverse artist exhibitions
Showcase featured artists and position MoFY as an active participant in the NFT Art ecosystem, while building an active and engaged community.
Permanent metaverse galleries
Archive each MoFY exhibition on an open, accessible platform and create a constantly growing resource for users to explore
A new NFT magazine
The latest news, mints and commentary on the evolving space, both technological and cultural.
In-house and partner NFT releases
Highly collectible drops to reward active community members
Weekly artist AMAs
More frequent AMAs that are less time-intensive and formal than full feature exhibitions, allowing artists to connect with the community
Continued relationship-building with key players in the space
Cement MoFY as a key player in the ecosystem and contribute to, and tap into, the wider community of NFT Art lovers.
Community NFT treasury/ permanent collection
Over time generate a community art treasury to further build reputation and strengthen community
YAM token as an essential component powering the MoFY ecosystem
In summary I believe that that the NFT ecosystem presents a core opportunity for Yam DAO to provide real value to a new generation of users, value which will in turn be reflected back to YAM token holders and the Yam DAO treasury.
I would welcome any discussion on this broad vision for MoFY!
