After introducing my idea of creating Loot’s Lore on a wiki format with tokenized voting, I’ve been thinking these last weeks about why should we build this and how can this be built.
Why building this
First of all, I think this is a must-have piece for Loot’s success because of the power of abstraction it provides to builders. Let me explain:
Imagine a scenario without a defined written universe. Those who want to participate in the creation of a game or any other type of product require a certain context so, for them, it would be necessary to develop this entire universe from scratch, in addition to the technical development of the product itself, in this case, the game. So the absence of a written universe makes the creation of complex projects on top of Loot an even more complicated task.
However, with a defined written universe, builders can focus on their specific task, also building a coherent universe with the approval of the community.
How can we build this
Well, how can we build a wiki where we can write the Loot universe? Let me bring you here a potential first version of it:
The first step is for a writer, Loot holder, to create a new entry. Once that entry is created, its inclusion in the wiki is open for voting. If the community decides that it should take part, the process continues with the following actions:
- Create an NFT of that entry
- $LORE airdrop between voters and the writer/s, of course, in different proportions.
The NFT is auctioned and both the ETH received by the auction and the royalties generated by its subsequent sales will be sent to a multisig wallet controlled by the holders of $LORE.
How can we edit previous entries?
Once a vote has concluded, that entry is subject to possible changes by the community. An editor, Loot holder, can propose a change, and that change is voted among Loot’s community. If accepted, the content of the NFT is updated according to the new version of the entry.
Regarding the technical part, it is probably best to use the Snapshot API and define specific formats in the titles to differentiate between new entries and editions. It does not really make sense to build, at least at this stage, a voting system from scratch. Snapshot’s technology is there, on-chain and gasless.
- Can only LOOT forks propose entries?
- Distribution of LOOT Lore DAO tokens among voters, writers, and editors.
- Should the NFT of the entry be auctioned or should the writer be able to mint and own it?
- How to discuss adjustments in promising entries but not good enough to be accepted?
- What should be the supply of the $ LORE tokens?
- What should be the minimum percentages for the acceptance of tickets and editions?
- What should be the minimum votes for the acceptance of entries and editions?
- How do we proceed to delete an entry after its acceptance? Maybe removing the content from the NFT?
Please, feel free to give some feedback, ideas, more open questions, or whatever!
