DXdao <> Atlantis World

Gm everyone! I’m Rev, co-founder & growth lead @ Atlantis World. We’re super excited about the potential of our collab with DXdao community and core contributors!

Side note

I’ve met Tammy (@tammy) first time @ EthCC in Paris, and since then we’ve been in touch, discussing possibilities of Atlantis World <> DXdao collab. Later on, together with my co-founder CJ, we’ve met other DXdao rockstars @ DAOist event and ETH Lisbon Hackathon. We had some fantastic conversations, and now we’d love to bring forward a long-term, positive-sum partnership proposal between Atlantis World <> DXdao.

Introduction

Atlantis World is building the Web3 social metaverse. We’re connecting social with Web3 (NFTs, DeFi + DAOs) and gaming inside of a lightweight virtual world that’s accessible to everybody.

We believe that existing metaverses set a high-cost barrier to entry and a hardware standard that doesn’t match up with global readiness due to a focus on 3d/immersive experience. We’re building Atlantis as a lightweight, 2d pixel metaverse that will run on any device in the web browser, from anywhere in the world!

We’re curating a fully fledged crypto economy of the metaverse starting with game experiences that plug into Web3 applications. You can even visit digital banks and unlock billions of dollars in liquidity for anything from savings accounts to borrowing, or freely exchange money and trade anything from financial instruments to NFT wearables and other digital goods / collectibles such as land.

We’ll build token gated cities for your favorite communities, starting with the founding partners of the Atlantis World ecosystem… Here, communities will be able to host virtual events powered by spatial video/audio calling, as well as NFT treasure hunts, voting in DAOs and using other Web3 applications. We’re also working hard to enable customizability features as well as building SDKs so that leading creators and developers can improve Atlantis World as a global collective. We’re building the user owned metaverse, so want to enable that as soon as possible.

We’re also working toward a planet positive future in collaboration with our users and community… which is why we’re planting a biodiverse, carbon capturing virtual forest inside of Atlantis.

Collab scope

We can add value to the DXdao ecosystem in a number of ways, from integrating DXdao products inside of Atlantis to building token-gated meta-city for DXdao community.

  • Integrating Swapr, Carrot, DXvote, and Omen within Atlantis World so that users can access multiple DXdao products in a gamified way.
  • Building a fully Web3-enabled token gated city for the DXdao community with NFTs, video calling, DeFi + in-game DAO voting! The city will be map sized and totally personalized with DXdao brand styling, perfect for hosting virtual events, NFT treasure hunts, voting in DAOs and other fun stuff.
  • Creating MMORPG-style Learn2Earn (incentivized learning) quests to onboard users into DXdao + the wider DeFi ecosystem.
  • Enabling network effects by rolling out gamified DXdao products in Atlantis City and cities of other DeFi communities such as Yearn or Balancer to onboard more users who are already Web3 native.
  • Adding a portal to multiple DXdao products, a DXdao booth (where users can learn more with social links like Discord) and the DXdao building to Atlantis City.
  • Airdropping token gated city + the DXdao products’ buildings/clubhouses to the DXdao community.
  • DXdao wearables and swag inside of Atlantis World.
  • DXdao core contributors co-working space (token-gated with NFT/POAP/social token etc)
  • Other suggestions from the DXdao community.

Support requests

We’d highly appreciate exploring some support that might be made available to us on our mission to collaborate and provide value to the DXdao ecosystem and community:

  • Grant funding;
  • Mentorship;
  • Tech support;
  • Community / user feedback and collaborative efforts;
  • Joint marketing.

Other Information

We’re currently building hard on a completely new version of Atlantis which we’re planning to ship before EOY. On our first prototype / demo version (https://demo.atlantis.world) we currently have over 2k active users, for the new version we have over 5.4k early access sign ups.

We’re still fully bootstrapped, managing to scale our team to 7 full time core contributors on the back of grants, collabs + our own capital. So, the support of the DXdao ecosystem would be huge to us in helping us build the user owned metaverse for public good. In terms of user ownership, we want to enable that ASAP, though we’re exploring alternative methods vs launching a token as it stands right now.

Our current ecosystem partners have social media communities of 2.4M+ users that will be invited to beta test Atlantis and become our early adopters. Joint marketing is a core part of our GTM and we’re onboarding new partners at an unprecedented rate.

We also plan to enable network effects for all parties involved, by incentivising and encouraging different partner communities to try each other’s products inside of Atlantis. As well as this, we’ll also target non crypto natives with interactive learning for DeFi and other Web3 building blocks like DAOs, blockchain games and blockchain wallets, even creating core Web3 onboarding and wallet creation experience.

We also have super active 5k+ Discord users, with 700+ mobilising to make a contribution to our GR11 grant (when we had 1.4k community members).

Thank you for sharing the post @revmiller !

Rev will be doing a short demo and AMA on the project for 10-15 minutes during the weekly DXdao Discord Community call this Thursday. The best way for DXdao to get use out of having a metaverse space is for it to fit the DXdao community’s needs. I hope people will ask questions on how – and if – they would like to use Atlantis World.

Some questions I have for the project include:

  1. Atlantis World is currently on Polygon and mainnet (i believe), does Atlantis World see expanding to xdai and / or arbitrum in the near future, since this is where DXdao’s community largely exists.
  2. What are you most excited about implementing with Atlantis World, and how could DXdao use it.

Combining the metaverse with DeFi and DAOs is a really interesting pursuit to see how these spaces can support building the Ethereum community. Thanks for sharing, and looking forward to hearing more on Thursday during the community call.

Hey Tammy, tysm for taking the time out to review our proposal and leave some comments / feedback. Looking forward to the demo on Thurs and this collab in general :rocket:

You’re correct in thinking that game assets from https://demo.atlantis.world are tokenised on Polygon, as well as stored + loaded directly from IPFS. However, because of the nature of our tech stack, we’re able to launch web3 apps on a variety of chains even inside 1 central hub, with the user switching networks after a simple prompt should they want to interact with an app on a different network.

We’ll launch a great number of web3 apps on xDai, Arbitrum (already started) and support as many chains / ecosystems as we possibly can into the future. As well as being the community owned metaverse, the accessible metaverse, and the interoperable metaverse, we’ll also do our best to be the prominent metaverse accelerating a multi chain future.

I’m excited about gamifying the entire suite of DXdao apps / products inside of Atlantis, paving the road for a super sweet + smooth onboarding experience. Beyond, I’m exciting about combining that with social features (like text chat + video/audio calling) and DXvote inside of DXdao City within Atlantis, leading to comparable utility with a real world CAPITAL city!

Let’s DAO it!
