Almost Nouns

Nouns that appear while another Noun is at auction never had the chance to be minted, but what about the poor unfortunate Nouns that are unminted as FOMO Nouners passes them by. These Nouns could have been minted and changed the world. They deserve to be seen and bid on. Let's free these Nouns from the Nounish Limbo and mint them all.

"Blind" Auctions

Change the Nouns Auction model to ONLY show you the Noun AFTER the auction is over, that way we can truly see how much aesthetics plays into auction prices... are there really beautiful Nouns vs ugly Nouns, or are we all just Nouns?

NOUNISH PRESS CORPS

We need a person or a team of people to manage write, or assist in creating solid press releases for props that may need broader exposure, marketing help and a press boost Happy to discuss how we do it with our mailing lists and socials. This is a much needed component so that we can break out of the NFT Titter/discord echo chamber bubble

Happy to discuss.

Thanks

UNIVERSAL AR MARKER for the NOGGLES

Imagine that anytime you point your phone to the Classic Noggles Icon you automatically get directed to Nouns.center?

What if that every time that happens a daily auction NOUN appears in full 3D as an animated interactive AR toy? That 3D asset will also get transfered to the wallet that wins the auction that day. AR filter resets to generate the next NOUN. This can also be fun as FOMO moves to the metaverse =)

I have been thinking about this for a few years, and have seen AR demos that can do this on packaging and I want to do this with all of our physical products, but we are a small specialized studio and do not have the bandwidth or the skill needed to implement this idea to its fullest. Would love to open up a convo about this. I think it is a totally practical idea that just needs some additional eyes and brains to bounce around with.

Would love to hear what everyone thinks and if there are AR devs interested in exploring. I already have multiple assets to test etc.

Thanks,

Klim

Hoop Nouns

ONE HOOP NOUN, EVERY GAME, FOREVER.

Hoop Nouns is an expansion DAO that aims to increase access to Nouns DAO and expose the basketball world to Nouns. Hoop Nouns DAO members pool their resources to buy Nouns and represent the basketball community in Nouns DAO by proposing, supporting and developing basketball oriented projects.

One Hoop Noun is trustlessly auctioned, every NBA game, forever. Each game, two Hoop Nouns (one inspired by each competing team) receive auction bids. The one with the highest bid gets minted.

Looking for artists to team up with, but also any NBA / Nouns fans are welcome! Reach out on Twitter: https://twitter.com/kyza____

Center Protocol

A protocol that allows any NFT smart contract owner to create a Nouns Center instance with details, assets, and other proliferation data for a collection or DAO. The created instances would be housed on one domain so that collectors or members could view other collection/DAO data further expandings the proliferation opportunities.

VRGDA Auctions

Implement VRGDA (Variable Rate Gradual Dutch Auctions) with Nouns. This is something that Paradigm is pioneering with Art Gobblers and 0xMonaco, so it could be interesting to see how it alters the dynamic with Nouns.

Expanding the Nouns canvas from 32x32 to 64x64

Right now, all Nouns core art is limited to 32x32 pixels, but it would be interesting to expand it to 64x64 to see what artists can do with the additional canvas space. You can likely "inflate" the current art to fit the 64x64 canvas properly so you won't lose any existing traits.

Default New Nouns to Delegated status

Since a lot of Nouns end up not participating in governance, wouldn't it be interesting if newly won Nouns were by default delegated to a pool of DAO voted participants? New Noun winners would be able to un-delegate right away, but the default state would be "delegated", which would help to boost vote participation in the DAO.
.
We can use Nouns Agora to find suitable delegates.

Social Media Display NFT as PFP Function

No clue how this would really work, but it would be awesome if we could have a slot or setting in our hardware wallets to select a primary NFT. This primary NFT will be fetchable by social media sites to be displayed as our PFP.

Whenever user changes the NFT within the "slot" or "setting" in the hardware wallet all sites/applications that are given access will auto update the PFP to the new NFT.

Visual aid for yallz!

Heatmap of Nouns Auction Winners

I thought it may be a cool idea to create a heat map that would use IP addresses of the bidders to show auction activity. This wouldn't be super precise to aid in privacy, but it could maybe show the country or city at most.

Beats DAO

A Nouns Builder idea:

Beats DAO

🎧 Nouns-like art centered around noggles and headphones

🎧 Auctions proceeds sent to treasury just like Nouns

🎧 Instead of holder proposals, Beats DAO uses Prop House to invite the hip hop community to seek sponsorship (similar to the Gnars sponsorship model)

🎧 As it scales, Beats DAO eventually hosts a live show adjacent to an nft convention that features sponsored hip hop artists

🎧 The Beats holders would probably be a cool bunch of people

🎧 Utilizing Prop House infrastructure would be (a) great exposure for the hip hop artists, (b) be a potential onboard for those artists into crypto, and (c) be a good tool to selecting promising hip hop artists

🎧 The Beats DAO concert would be a lot of fun and could become a regular thing

1/1 Nounish

A place where people can post or promote their 1/1 Nounish NFT's.

Realizing that many artists create nounish works such a 1/1, it might be useful to have a place to display their 1/1 works from various marketplaces, displaying brief details of auction prices and descriptions in one place. Perhaps with this it can also be arranged to allocate a few percent of the proceeds to return to Nouns treasury. Back to how good it is for all participation.

Become lilnoun LPs on sudoswap

Nouns Treasury currently holds over 600 lilnouns. Providing two sided lilnoun liquidity on sudoswap at the 0.15 (lilnoun mint price) price point would accrue trading fees to the Nouns treasury.
