There are many gaming, engaging and economic mechanics which can be introduced with a NFT/PFP collection linked to Giveth. The idea is to create a collection called The Givers and add initial utility to the NFTs as the owners purchase them. After a period of time, once the collection is introduced and spread in the community, additional new creative dynamics can be introduced to keep the community engaged adding project NFTs like those described in previous posts in the forum. We are describing this proposal only as an introductory way to incorporate NFTs into the ecosystem from a gaming perspective. Many other rules and utilities can be incorporated after a collection is launched.
Creating a circular sustainable economy is key to any crypto ecosystem such as Giveth. The DeFi farms, staking benefits, Givstream, and the Giv backs are great ways to avoid quick token dumps and incentivize economy participation but they are all based on economic mechanics. Implementing gamification through the introduction of an NFT collection will be an original and creative way to implement engaging mechanics which will bring revenue inflows and will create the baseline if later the DAO decides to introduce potential play-to-earn gaming elements.
We expect 6 weeks for all art generation and minting code, for front-end design aligned with the Giveth site as well as NFT utility we will need giveth support.
- The Givers NFT collection will introduce a new creative way to engage with the audience
- Will increase the sense of belonging to the DAO.
- Will generate revenues that will be able to be distributed between the projects, donors, and the treasury.
- Will introduce the first gamification elements which can later be complemented with other ones as well as gamification initiatives.
An art proposal could represent The Givers as donors to the Giveth projects. They are community members who feel identified with the Giveth project as they have contributed in the past or will contribute through the NFT acquisition. We plan on launching a collection of unique NFTs in the Gnosis chain. Most NFT collections are only male genre-based so we think it would be nice to offer a male/female choice at minting and then a random composition of different elements will end up creating the final NFT image. Here is an example of two sketches offering different “gifs” as a contribution to Giveconomy.
We can introduce rarity to the collection, configuring some traits to have less probability to be randomly selected when the collection image algorithm creates all the collection. We can also link the amount of Givs or Givstream to the rarity of the NFT.
We understand collection theme and narrative have to be discussed to reach the highest consensus, so take this as an example of how everything would be developed.
Below are utility ideas to start with and engage in the broader conversation with the community. The final technical implementation will be decided after we hear all input from the community and assess the feasibility of implementation.
Purchasing one of the Givers will provide you with two basic first sale utilities:
A one-time amount of initial Givs the owner will only be able to donate to existing verified projects.
A one-time amount of Givs or a weekly stream of Givs depending on the rarity of your Giver NFT.
We suggest having a maximum of 10.000 unique NFTs representing The Givers
We suggest the collection will be sold in the Gnosis Blockchain and priced in xDai.
Launching costs will be covered by a garden proposal. See the budget below.
Funnyverse team will lead the project and will provide the art and the code to generate the unique NFT png files with the corresponding metadata JSON files. Funnyverse has Smart contract knowledge for bulk minting (minting all NFTs and offering them so the users can see them and choose which one they want to purchase). Support from Giveth will be needed if we intend to mint on demand (showing a common generic image when users purchase and seeing the result after the mint)
In the event we decide to mint on demand, we propose to create a minting page on the Giveth website. Support will be needed from the Giveth team to create the webpage and integrate its functionality with the smart contract. Support from Giveth will also be needed to add the NFT utility described in the previous section.
After minted, we suggest NFTs to be added to the Emporio NFT market in the Gnosis chain. In case of linking a GivStream to the NFT, this utility will be transferred with NFT.
We request a budget of 15.000 xDai to cover the following:
Art design. We will discuss general art themes with the community and once that is closed different traits will be generated for different parts of the design (ie, mouth, eyes, clothes, background, head, etc) with their rarities in the event we decide to give different weight to some of the traits. The combination of all traits will be enough to generate the total number of unique units we finally decide for the whole collection.
NFT file generation. Code will be created to randomly select a variation of every single trait to generate every single final art png file as well as the JSON file representing the metadata using the Opensea standard so all markets using that same standard can recognize the NFTs.
Data upload. All data will be uploaded to IPFS
NFT smart contracts. Open Source contracts will be modified and deployed to mint the NFTs. We will choose if we want a pre-mint collection or a mint on-demand one.
Project management. Funnyverse can lead or be part of the team leading the project if Giveth decides to do so.
All revenues generated from the sale as well as IP rights will be transferred to Giveth DAO
Funnyverse commits to provide liquidity 3000 xDai in one of the Giveth pools on the Gnosis chain

Funnyverse is a team of two.
- Alex is the artist, with long experience in comic and caricature art. He was also the art creator of TEC Hatch NFT.
- Santi has several years of project management experience and several months of DAO experience latelly as a steward in TEC. They both launched a previous collection called The Grim Folks in the WAX blockchain
Team Role Definitions.
- All art will be created by Alex
- Santi will lead coordinating all work from the art and development team. He will be dealing with the code to generate the NFT files out of the different art layers (png and JSON) for the entire collection, and also in NFT smart contract minting and front-end together with Giv Devs.
We look forward to all your proposal comments. The Funniverse team, as an NFT lover, already led the TEC hatch NFT proposal together with some members of the community.
We believe projects need to be fun, and an NFT collection can be the first element to open the door to future NFT elements to complement this great project which could be the seed to a future play-to-earn game implementation to bring newer members and donors to the DAO.
