GNARS’ly Video Part by Haris Housos
The first video part funded by a DAO has been dropped through the Gnars Media House and is available to mint! Huge shoutout to Knowhow92 for all his time and effort put into this part. It has been in the works for quite some time now so it’s really great to see this come to fruition. Check out his announcement here or head directly to the mint page to collect yours today!
Infinite Prop House Round
Our first infinite Prop House round parameters have been updated with a lower quorum and extended voting period to allow Gnars holders more time to vote on their favorite submissions. If you’re just getting caught up, winners of this round will receive 0.20 ETH for them to produce custom boards with their design, and winning designs will also be produced and given to Gnars-sponsored shredder Tom Rohrer who will ride the boards on his channel which has garnered millions of views! Check out the round on Prop House here.

The Lil Gnarly Skate Jam – ETH Chicago
Gnars Media House
The proposal establishes the Gnars Media House as an extension of Gnars DAO. This involves minting on an ERC1155 contract to feature content produced and voted on by Gnars members, starting with a skate video part called “GNARS’ly” by Haris Housos. The video NFTs are available to mint for 0.01 ETH, with proceeds divided between the Gnars Treasury and the creators.
Jasper – Moderation Proposal
$NOGS for Gnars
With the recent launch of NNS’s Social Staking program and the $NOGS token, we will begin to see more creative ways to earn $NOGS around the nouniverse. From this point forward, proposal activity including submitting proposals and voting on them will earn you $NOGS tokens on the Polygon network. You will earn 10k tokens for every vote and 50k for every proposal submission. Check out the announcement on Twitter. You can also check out this post on Nouns.Blog for more details.
Gnars x ThePASS
ThePASS is a DAO platform that has built a custom dashboard for Gnars! The dashboard shows a variety of insights such as news feeds from social media, treasury analytics, governance updates, and more. Check out the Gnars dashboard here or the announcement on Twitter.
Nouns HD Have Gone Multichain
Nouns HD was a huge success and sold out on Zora in about a week. Fortunately for those of you who missed it, the mint was such a success it has also been expanded with an additional mint on Base. Want to grab yours? Head over to Zora or Mint.fun. To spice things up a bit, Gami is even offering 0.42069 ETH to the lowest unique holder after the mint concludes. Not quite sure what this means? Here is his explanation of how the winner will be selected.
Nouns, but Uglier
Our very own Brett (formerly Pinpusher) has launched a beautifully ugly collection of Nouns on Zora! After the initial mint was botted and sold out very quickly, he relaunched with a larger supply on Zora so everyone has a chance to snag a few. Check out the announcement on Twitter.

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.
