Thanks for the update! Here’s a link to your latest GIVgarden proposal for anyone else curious:

Chiming in here, I was going through the PFP Giveth project and Im curious to know a bit more about this drop, specially because as many of you know trends happening around Web3 change very fast, and launching PFP collections to raise funds is not a very successful strategy anymore.
Im seeing that the designs are pretty much done, and the collection is almost ready, but as big NFT collections are less and less trendy/engaging in the space, I think this will need a stronger /more solid strategy in order to gain traction.

The use cases I’ve recently seen in the DAO ecosystem regarding PFPs have specific objectives, basically reputation token which unlock benefits/roles.

Ex: DreamDAO Champions need to have a Skywalker Z to make this role official, and actually the floor price is not bad o.66 Eth aprox.
DoinGud is launching an NFT collection which grant membership access to other DAOs, with different tiers…
As you can see these have a clear use/strategy behind, Giveth has already reputation tokens, but I think theres a lot of creativity we can put behind this collection.

Maybe this strategy is already in place and I didnt found it , could share any strategy resource available @santigs ?


A low hanging fruit would be to revive the idea of GIVbonds.

Users can buy the PFP and with it comes a GIVstream equal to less than what they paid for the PFP.

i.e Givers can buy the PFP for 200 DAI - When they buy it we assign them a GIVstream for 100 DAI worth of GIV at spot price.

These people effectively become incentivized to hodl, potentially gaining more than they paid as the price of GIV matures, unlocking slowly with the GIVstream, and they get a sweet PFP to boot!

Giveth gains a fat cut of instant profit on each sale and offers a long-term speculation opportunity along with potential resale value to first buyers.


Yeah, that’s a great economic incentive . Wondering if we could add some social value as well?

Maybe holders can earn a Giveth role that grant access to some special Discord channel (W other holders/opportunities). Maybe can be a $nice Discord channel and plus the GIVstream idea holders could get some $nice that can be use for Giveth swag.

Open for a further brainstorm around adding some social utility, a lot of NFT collection use cases are tied to social capital, - which could trigger and promote other DAO features as $nice, swag / community building


I agree we have to use the Giveth ecosystem to find out and implement creative ways to integrate the PFP collection adding utility on top of the intrinsic value of the art. The purpose of the proposal is to have the art ready and open the discussion on ways to drop and add utility to get the most out of the collection.

It would be nice to have some brainstorming @OyeAlmond, maybe we can start to have some initial discussions in the coming weeks once the art starts getting ready.


@mitch @OyeAlmond @santigs the strategy I’ve heard working well recently, means doing a free NFT mint first (open to all) and then using that as a filter to qualify for the drop of the other paid mint which as Almond suggested (and i totally agree with :slight_smile: ) comes with real utility/ benefit.

@Griff the pooly mint was amazing and I think we can learn from it. I think it did so well because it was beyond an NFT and it was about a cause. Pool together was getting sued (big guys trying to shut it down, saying it was a lottery and should be regulated) so PT called on the community to come together and help defend defi - to fight the good fight and stand up against the big guys by buying an NFT that would help with their legal fees in court.

Let’s put our heads together to think what the proper positioning and utility for this NFT can be?

After these round of comments, I hear we have no strategy for the drop. Agree is elemental to put this in place asap (as it’s a long process that needs the team consensus) .
Brainstorm summary to trigger the strategy creation:

:point_down:t3: needs further discuss

  • GIVstream included equal to less of the cost for each NFT

  • Unblocking exclusive Giveth Discrod role

  • $nice included for Giveth swag

  • allowlist Implementation

  • @tropicalmango is right, to tie all the benefits/utility we need to build a strong story that motivates the sell (in benefit of Giveth.)
    @santigs would be good to start weekly session with the community team @WhyldWanderer - as the most keen working group regarding community motivations.

@mitch and I were thinking that it would be cool to have the NFT drop in December as it frames the story telling we’re missing:
· Celebration of the 1 year of GIV airdrop!!! - GIVeconomy turns 1 year.
· Christmas time! :christmas_tree::gift::piñata: This is the month to give, so we could market the sell: Buy a GIVer and giveback in the giving month. GIV GIV giveee time :kissing::musical_note::notes:

Adding to the utility/benefits brainstorm that strengths the narrative :
· One part of the sell could go to the Giveth matching pool (so ppl will not only be supporting Giveth, but also projects).

This NFT sell could be added to the recent Revenue Streams, Platform Fees, and GIVfi v0.1 conversation, as part of the action plan. ***

Smth like this:
GIVeconomy turns one year and we need your support to keep building the future of giving, we’re having a PFP drop that will not only help Giveth, but also Giveth projects through the Giveth matching pool. With your purchase you will get:

wdyt? @tropicalmango @santigs

I agree dropping in December would be cool making it match the GIV airdrop anniversary.
