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
Royalties are here!
With the recent passing of Proposal 51 the DAO has signaled a desire to implement royalties on secondary markets to earn additional revenue to the DAO’s treasury. As of February 8, the 4.20% royalties are in effect on OpenSea, and on-chain registries will be updated shortly. All revenue from royalties will be sent to the DAO at gnars.eth. Huge thanks to Gnarley-Quinn and Gami for getting this done!
As we work through changes to our governance structure, processes, and onboarding flow you’ll start to notice some changes in our Discord. If you’re in there regularly I’m sure you’ve seen that we’ve already begun making changes to channels! We are hoping to simplify things but also want to be sure we incorporate feedback from the community, so if you have any comments or concerns about changes being made please ping a board member!
More Updates for That’s Gnarly
The Collective team is constantly working on updates to the That’s Gnarly platform and this week is no exception. They’ve rolled out updates to their testnet contracts in preparation for a protocol upgrade that will have all drops minted to the same contract rather than a new one for each, along with a few other changes. Take a look at the rundown shared by rocketman in discord here. Be sure to check Thatsgnar.ly daily for sick clips like the one below and upvote your favorites!
Gnarving Coming Soon
I’m going to mention this every week until it happens because it’s that important! The gnarving is when the duration of each auction doubles, and this time the auction duration is going to increase from 40 to 80 minutes. At the time of this writing, there are 207 auctions left. And don’t forget, the next gnarving will also mark the beginning of auction extensions and the end of sniping! Interested in learning more about how our auctions work? Head over to onboard.wtf.
We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!

Commission 5 web3 Musicians to make gnarly cc0 music
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.
