The Story DAO by StoryCo: The Premier Web3 Storytelling Community is Reopening its Producer Token Membership
Today, we are reopening applications for the chance to mint a Producer Token and join the “Story DAO."
Wanna help shape the future of entertainment?
Now’s your chance: StoryCo is thrilled to announce the reopening of applications to mint our Producer Token, which grants you entrance into the “Story DAO.”
By becoming a Producer Token holder, you join a highly sought-after and exclusive community of 260 professionals across the entertainment, Web3, art, tech, and business sectors.
You also enter into the inner-sanctum of the StoryCo ecosystem…
Our mission at StoryCo is to cultivate a community where passionate fans and creators from various backgrounds can unite to collaboratively develop, contribute, and co-own the next generation of story franchises.
Our Producer Token community is the pinnacle of this collaborative spirit, serving as our support system, sounding board, and collaborative partner as we build our platform and seed it with the first stories. Additionally, as the platform grows, our Producer Token holders will have unparalleled access and opportunities to co-own and co-create the first StoryCo universes, and to create their own original IP once the beta version of the platform launches.
We hope you’ll join us…
The Expansion Plan
We're increasing our Producer Token membership by 46, raising the total to 305 tokens. The expansion process will involve:
Selling 41 Tokens for .1 ETH through an application process.
Auctioning off 5 additional tokens upon the launch of our first production, THE DISCO BALL.
The selection process will commence after the application window closes, and acceptance notices will be sent out on a rolling basis for several weeks afterwards, during which a membership committee of 7 existing Producer Token holders will evaluate applicants. They will ultimately select 41 accepted candidates and 40 additional waitlist candidates.
Lastly, until now, Producer Tokens were non-tradeable and non-transferable, allowing us to build and maintain a highly-curated community of storytellers and creative professionals—the best in Web3. But following the sale and auction, tokens will become tradeable on the secondary market, enabling more people to join our community and allowing members to exit the community as they so-choose.
Why Expand the Producer Token Community?
The initial minting of 259 exclusive membership NFTs in August 2022 established a solid foundation for our thriving community. Since then, our community members have actively engaged in numerous activations and events and collaborated on many creative endeavors, fueling the growth and vibrancy of our StoryCo ecosystem.
But EXPANDING the Producer Token community will:
Amplify the StoryCo ecosystem by attracting top-tier writers, artists, creators and creative professionals to engage with our ecosystem
Generate more opportunities for community members with diverse skills and expertise to connect and collaborate on creative projects
Foster increased diversity and inclusion, and bring fresh ideas and unique perspectives to our storytelling community
Decentralize decision making with the DAO, ensuring a wider range of perspectives and knowledge bases are considered in critical choices about projects and resource allocation
Catapult us towards achieving the ambitious goals set for the community and StoryCo…
StoryCo + Story DAO: Big Plans Coming 🔜
Brace yourself; 2023 is the year the Story DAO makes head-waves in the Storytelling NFT space and broader entertainment industry.
We have monumental plans for the Story DAO, primarily revolving around leveraging the treasury funds, which will be significantly bolstered by the sales and auction.
A quick financial breakdown:
-Currently, the treasury holds 25.9 ETH
-With 41 additional sales, the total will increase to 30 ETH
-The auction sales will contribute additional funds
-Royalties from secondary sales and other creative ways to expand our treasury will help ensure sustained growth of the treasury for years to come
Going forward, we will be rolling out a string of initiatives and proposals aimed at supporting and fostering the growth of the broader NFT storytelling ecosystem with the Story DAO treasury.
From funding high-profile productions to acquiring the most innovative and sought-after Storytelling NFTs, we will soon reveal more information on how we plan to empower the Producer Token community to unleash the treasury funds on the broader Storytelling NFT ecosystem.
Beyond plans for the treasury, StoryCo has a massive few months ahead of us as we roll out the platform and launch our first groundbreaking production, THE DISCO BALL, designed to establish a new, radical piece of entertainment IP that will also showcase StoryCo's platform.
By joining the Story DAO, you'll be part of a journey that will redefine how stories are created, shared, and owned in the entertainment industry by helping develop our platform and shaping, expanding, and eventually, creating story universes.
