We will be injecting $100,000 USD into the creation of a Community Grant (Liquidity Pool), funded from the mint funds and secondary royalties, in order to execute our roadmap 2.0. The Community Grant will primarily serve to reward community members who can i) foster the creation of new art, and ii) otherwise contribute to community engagement.
There is something for everyone at Generativemasks.
a) Creation of New Art
There will be weekly contests held for a total of $600 USD allotted to artists of all types, who contribute their creations to the Generativemasks community on Discord.
i) Original Art
Artists can submit their original art pieces that take inspiration from Generativemasks. Although we are a generative art-centric community, the submissions do not necessarily have to be generative art. Feel free to let your creativity take over, and show the world what derivatives you come up with.
ii) Graphic Design
Graphic designers can take something that already exists, give their unique Generativemasks spin on it, and submit their creations. It can be another NFT, photograph, brand logo, movie poster, etc. - the possibilities are truly infinite. Remix Generativemasks into the world.
iii) Submission Categories and Rewards
There are four submission categories. Holders can apply to all four, while non-holders are restricted to the non-holder specific categories.
b) Community Engagement
Community members who contribute in non-artistic ways to our Discord will be rewarded. There are a number of ways to participate, as we are aiming to be as inclusive as possible.
As we progress, we will adjust the types of activities, the frequency with which they are hosted, and the rewards are given out. Through trial and error and reception of community feedback, we believe we can develop a system that rewards our family the Generativemasks way.
We are open to non-holder participation, as we want to value inclusivity. At the same time, our holders remain our top priority and will be treated as such. As of launch, our family can earn weekly rewards by participating in the following categories:
Quizzes consisting of trivia questions about Generativemasks will be hosted on Kahoot, a popular online quiz platform. Players are rewarded for correct answers and their quickness.
ii) Discord Games
Fan favorites like Rumble Royale and Guess the Number will be hosted in the Generativemasks Discord server.
iii) Daily Check-In and Gold Contributors
We’re turning the
#gm-ga-ge-gn channel into a daily check-in channel with a 6-hour slow mode. It will be the only channel where XP can be earned. The range of XP earned will be RNG dependent and the leaderboard will be reset on a weekly basis.
Those who are in the upper echelon in the leaderboard that is also positive contributors to our community will be handpicked by Takawo and the Generativemasks team for rewards, as well as being assigned the Gold role. This role will have special perks in the future!
