having received a first level of consensus in the DAO, I would like to go into more specifics of BanklessDAO’s possible participation in Atlantis World, as initially suggested by Ryan Sean Adams.
If what has been discussed receives adequate consent and the discussion proceeds, everything will be presented in the form of a proposal.
I underline a fundamental point: personally I am not preferring one metaverse over another and this eventual presence should not replace the presence in other metaverses.
Metaverses are like nations and I believe BanklessDAO should have its own “embassy” in an adequate number of them.
Introduction to Atlantis World, featured by CJ from Atlantis World
Atlantis World is a pixel metaverse with token-gating, video calling, gamified DeFi + in-game DAO voting. We believe that as much as metaverse should be open, it should be accessible (lightweight) + plug into DeFi applications in a fun / gamified way.
Existing virtual worlds are inaccessible because they have a 3d/immersive focus, resulting in a high-cost barrier to entry (since in order to enjoy seamless loading experience, users must go out + buy the latest iPad / gaming pc, this technology / hardware is neither inexpensive or readily available globally).
Also, we believe that we are missing a huge onboarding opportunity into DeFi as a collective space by not gamifying leading dApps / protocols inside of virtual worlds with additional interactive learning modules.
We are adding video/audio calling capabilities to user-owned, token-gated spaces inside of our pixel metaverse for communities to interact with each other; whilst gamifying DeFi protocols like Aave / Yearn / Sushi, curating interactive learning modules in our Web3 Academy + gamifying DAO voting.
To provide further value to the space, we’re exploring adding tooling products like CoinGecko to the Atlantis experience, as well as transforming our favourite NFT avatars into versatile, hyper-composable playable characters by building open source sprite sheets + full walk cycles ready to be used by those communities not just in Atlantis, but in all of pixel metaverse.
We’re also building public spaces + rethinking decentralized governance in collaboration with our community. We plan to build the City of Atlantis → a buzzing, entrepreneurial capital owned / governed by its users / inhabitants, where ETH is money + creative culture is king. If users want to open a business, like a virtual cafe, music venue, movie theatre or an independent art exhibition, they’ll be able to apply to occupy land for free until they’re seen to be making revenue (which is always verifiable on-chain).
Adding value to BanklessDAO ecosystem by CJ from Atlantis World
We can provide long term value to the BanklessDAO ecosystem in a number of ways.
Building a fully Web3-enabled token gated city for the BanklessDAO community with NFTs, video calling, DeFi + in-game DAO voting! The space will be map sized and totally personalized with Bankless brand assets.
Adding a portal to bankless.community +, a Bankless booth (where users can learn more) and a custom building to Atlantis City.
Airdropping token gated space to the BANK community.
Creating Bankless stations in token gated spaces of other communities, to enable network effects.
Bankless wearables and in-metaverse branded items inside of Atlantis World.
BanklessDAO (core) contributors token-gated (NFT/POAP/social token etc) co-working space.
Other suggestions from the BANK community.
Atlantis <> BanklessDAO grant funding request and milestones as requested by Atlantis World
Design, build and implement a Bankless podcast station into the current Atlantis World demo, which will enable users to visit the booth, play recent Bankless episodes, use a portal to bankless.community and other social links: 7,5 K USD
Design, build and implement a BanklessDAO clubhouse building inside our of demo where users would for example be able to go inside, view and play tokenized best all time episode NFTs in photo frame on wall, buy digipsychical Bankless merch, swap ETH + other assets for BANK tokens, etc. We’re also exploring a collaboration with Snapshot, so we’ll either add DAO voting natively to the clubhouse, or later to BanklessDAO City: 10K USD
(Optional)Fully Web3-enabled token gated city for the BANK holders community with NFTs, video calling, encrypted text chat, DeFi + in-game DAO voting! The city will be map sized and totally personalized with Bankless brand assets, even imagine a Bankless Hall of Fame with statues of great contributors and even notorious podcast guests in-metaverse, and the ability to actually host events and podcasts from inside of the city itself: 30k USD
The city will be airdropped to, governed by and held in the custody of BanklessDAO forever!

As indicated in the introduction, I believe that BanklessDAO should move in defining its spaces within the metaverses, creating a visible presence. To date we cannot know which will be the most successful metaverses and it is therefore preferable to disseminate one’s presence rather than focusing on a single metaverse.
- I agree to proceed
- I am in favor but it is necessary to work on it (indicate your point of view)
- I am against it
