“Space Postcards” Proposal

Preface

@CarolW

“For Chinese Community’s proposal workflow, we plan to take Space Postcards proposal as a example. Workflow as follows:

  1. Collect important proposal to the Proposal Group. (If there are Chinese members proposal it on Discord we won’t collect that)
  2. Have discussion in proposal group.
  3. Aggregate suggestions and finish the proposal draft.
  4. Translate and check the final edition of proposal draft.
  5. We adopt the practice of unified release of our final edition by core contributor from Chinese community @Richard, to increasing efficiency.

Profile

We want to develop a website called “Space Postcards” with a simple purpose:

1 - Allowing everyone to upload pictures, text, etc. that are meaningful to them,
2 - Allowing everyone to thumb up and vote for their favorite contents,
3 - Sending them to the moon.

Imagine how cool it would be if you were a basketball fan and you could send a classic Michael Jordan scene to the moon and it might get a thumbs up from Jordan himself! If you are a science fan, you can send “E=MC²” to the moon, which is a very meaningful thing!

In the future, we will establish the website to be a Web 3 platform or space enthusiast forum with space knowledge popularization, tips, etc.

Vision

By establishing this website, I am proposing to achieve following effects(if everything goes well):

1 - To spread MoonDAO project well-known all over the world. Like mentioned examples of basketball and science. Imagine what a huge global hype we will create if different people from various fields want their works showing up to the moon and they will canvass everywhere, which is a good publicity for us! At that time, people might not have ever heard about Bitcoin, they will definitely know about MoonDAO! The more people know about us, the more successful we will achieve!

(This holder restriction is because we need want celebrities hold our token to enhance our exposure. Maybe Jaychou’s fans vote for Jaychou and then Jaychou will be picked.)

2 - These following planned features can strongly enhance the Moondao community consensus and increase the practical application of our governance token $mooney.
(1) If the chosen content owner was a long term holder or pledger of $mooney, we can mint NFT of his work as a reward.
(2) Increasing vote ratio of $mooney holders in order to booting the sense of mission of every member and attracting more people with space dream to join us!
(3) If want the celebrities hold the token to make some news, we can lower threshold, no need let them hold for a long term or lock up. Such as the TOP10 finalists could just have bought token but they can sell it whenever they want, TOP 10-20 need to hold token for some time.

Basic Function

1 - Login ( Supporting web3 wallet, email, username, twitter, google etc)
2 - Content Upload. (To ensure quality, the limit of upload number is one for every account)
3 - Reaserch & Review
4 - Detail Reviewing
5 - Vote & Like
6 - Comment

Concept map

1 - Jan-Feb 2022 : Version 1.0 with basic functions launched.
2 - Apr-Launching to the moon 2022: High quality content selection and Version 2.0 development.
3 - Landing on the Moon!
4 - After moon landing: Continuous marketing to enhance our IP. Make this website a web3 space theme platform or space enthusiast forum.

Cautions

In order to avoid unnecessary arguments, any contents related to pornography, violence, religion, politics, etc will be rejected.

Development Team

Since the main core team needs to focus on the development of “Ticket to Space" project”,as our main task, also considering the differences of time zone and work habits between Chinese and foreign teams, I recommended that the Chinese community development team undertakes the initial development of this project. After the main core team’s key work completion, we will develop together.Preformatted text

I love this with my whole entire heart!

It’s such an interesting idea and I agree that it could drive a lot of international traffic.

  • I think it’s really important that this should be part of the official MoonDAO website. ( @zeroindex )
  • I also think this could be used for songs that should be included on our Voyager LP
  • We need to make sure we’re not necessarily storing all of these assets.
  • I don’t think we should lower the threshold for celebrities
  • And yes, $MOONEY holders should get a heavier weight to their vote

Thank you so much for this proposal! First, I want to say that I really love the energy behind the proposal and can’t wait to play with the first prototypes when they’re ready :smile:

I do have a few questions about the proposal:

Question 1: Infra Approach

Is this project intended to be a web3 native experience? For example, some possibilities of what we could do:

  • Represent the Postcards as an NFT
  • Use a sidechain or L2 to reduce the gas-fees required to interact with the application
  • Limit “backend” calls to decentralized services like Alchemy, IPFS, The Graph, etc.?

Question 2: Login

Basic Function
1 - Login ( Supporting web3 wallet, email, username, twitter, google etc)

Is login functionality required beyond the web3 wallet? If so, how will the credentials work and where will it be stored?

Question 3: Cautions

In order to avoid unnecessary arguments, any contents related to pornography, violence, religion, politics, etc will be rejected.

How will this be enforced? Who decides what content is rejected?

Question 4: Development Team

I recommended that the Chinese community development team undertakes the initial development of this project. After the main core team’s key work completion, we will develop together.

This sounds good to me! What language will we developing in? Is there a way to use the existing repo and tooling in anyway?

hey xiaoboo, I’m glad to see you guys like it. Most of this proposal is from me, so I can answer your questions.

Question 1: Infra Approach

Considering that most people in the world can participate, I think web3+web2 is better

  • Represent the Postcards as an NFT

    Of course we can do it , but if the number of participants beyond our expectations,we may choose the ones at the top.

  • Use a sidechain or L2 to reduce the gas-fees required to interact with the application

    This is a good suggestion! If a sidechain or L2 doesn’t affect the value of NFT and $mooney , we are glad to use.

  • Limit “backend” calls to decentralized services like Alchemy, IPFS, The Graph, etc

    It’s also a good suggestion! we will use those decentralized services when need

Question 2: Login

To spread MoonDAO project well-known all over the world, we need to make the application easy to use , especially for those who don’t know about cryptocurrency or web3. So a web2-login is necessary. As to storing the credentials, we can use database like MoongoDB or MySQL

Question 3: Cautions

Maybe we need auditors and some AI technologies to help us.

Question 4: Development Team

As @zeroindex mentioned before ,it seems like we are more of a JS shop ,but I think language should not be limited if any other language is popular in our team.
As to use the existing repo and tooling, of course we will use them if existing,and we may build a common component library or tools by developing this application.

Agree with you said! :smiley: but still have a question:

We need to make sure we’re not necessarily storing all of these assets.

What does this mean?

Pinata might be the way to go for hosting the files. It allows clients to “pin” on IPFS. If an image is deemed to violate our terms then we can just “unpin” the file and it should no longer be associated with the application.

re: Logins

Bitski Wallet might be a nice option for user who are not already onboarded to web3. It allows the user to create a custodial wallet using an email address. Here’s an example sign-up UI from Sandbox that’s nice inspiration:

I love this idea! Sounds great, shall we create a snapshot proposal for this?

Why would we need that?

Presently the devs on this project have indicated they require no funding for it.

I just meant that we shouldn’t be storing the postcards on our servers somewhere. Looks like @xiaoboo has a good suggestions with Pinata.

Renaming this to MDP- pending while other proposals are being put forth into snapshot. Offical MoonDAO Proposals that have the MDP in their title should typically be proposals that are near finalization and are soon to be ready to be but into Snapshot voting.

Yes, a snapshot vote is required. Although we do not need development funds in the early stage, the contributions of the development team members will be settled after the product is made, but we hope that this can be a snapshot vote, so that more people know about it and understand that our development is based on the community. voting results.
