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
News and Updates
If you haven’t noticed yet, the proposal for the ETHDenver Lounge/co-working space has passed! If you’re going to be in Denver for the event, be sure to get in touch with Pin Pusher and Vlad. The event details can be found in the poster below. Shirt orders have been placed and the first live artist has been booked so don’t miss out if you’re in town. Aubtoshi and Nouns OTG will be there as well, it’s guaranteed to be a gnarly time!
DAO Goals and Structure
On Wednesday a community call was held to review our goals and governance structure moving forward into 2023. If you missed it, a recording will be posted to our Gnarly Drive as soon as it is available. You can also review the slideshow prepared by Gami here. It is crucial that we incorporate comments and feedback from as much of the community as possible, so if you have thoughts or ideas about what the DAO should focus on and how it should operate please share them in the Discord!
Gnarving Coming Soon
Brace yourselves, just over 200 auctions left until the next gnarving! The gnarving is when the duration of each auction doubles, and this time the auction time is going increase from 40 to 80 minutes. Interested in learning more about how our auctions work? Head over to onboard.wtf.
That’s Gnarly Updates
The latest weekly drop on That’s Gnarly has been postponed due to some protocol upgrades. The team is currently working on some updates that will allow each NFT to be minted on the same contract moving forward, rather than a new contract for each drop. Please be patient if you experience any errors on the platform, and don’t hesitate to report bugs in the dedicated channel in Discord.
Going to be pausing drops for the next 2-3 days while we work on the new site
Expect a much improved experience come Sunday
Until then, stay
We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!
Gnarly Smoke Lounge/Co-Working Space at ETHDenver
This proposal is to sponsor a 2 day event for a smoke lounge and co-working space at ETHDenver. Attendees will be provided free entry with an ETHDenver badge and be provided Gnars DAO talks, giveaways, free joints, and more by the Gnars ambassadors Pin Pusher and Vlad. In addition to live painting and auctions, there will also be a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Contest and a Skate Contest at the local skatepark.
Set the Stage for Others to Shine
This proposal is requesting funding for protocol upgrades as previously discussed within the DAO. These upgrades include the implementation of auction extensions, migrating the DAO treasury from Gnosis Safe and Snapshot to DAO executor (similar to Nouns/Lil Nouns), and a variety of frontend and backend updates including voting and delegation UI, gnarving countdown, NNS resolution, and more.
Sponsor Ground Catch x Gnars 3-Day Event
Ground Catch is a filipino skateboarding club founded in 2010. BossJ is requesting funding for a 3 day event in Tuguegarao City where they will host tournaments, information sessions to onboard skaters into Gnars DAO, the creation of obstacles to skate on, content creation, and more.
