Mint, Migration, Roles & Quests ๐Ÿ‘€

Season 4 is ticking, will you rise through the ranks or join the fallen ones? ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Our dear Gnomeski has finished moving houses & was just about to hop back on the newsletter before falling ill ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Donโ€™t worry about the โ€˜ole Gnomeโ€™, its nuthinโ€™ serious & heโ€™ll be back on his feet in no time! This does however mean youโ€™ll read another bare newsletter because Iโ€™m unfortunately too damn busy to write you a nice post at this time ๐Ÿ˜‡

Wish you a swift recovery fren โค๏ธ

๐ŸŒฑ The Mint & Migration

I think its safe to say the Seed calculation & minting process is now properly understood by the new champion, simplified through the removal of the claim page step with Michiel now committed to minting on time, Luxumbra stepping up as a deputy to help push it along & Penguin ready to step in when needed ๐Ÿ’ช

Mints are safu ๐Ÿ’ช

But,

As you all know, the fees on mainnet have been stupid high.

People need to spend >$50 to claim their Seeds, then another >$50 to trade them in - on a nice day. This might not be that big of a deal for people earning >$3k, but its a huge deal for the people earning <$1k.

So we said, enough is enough!

  • And the Seed pool on Polygon was born ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Huge props to Bacon for inducing labor & delivering the baby pool.
Props to everyone who helped in the process & migrated the initial liquidity.

In short:

  • ๐ŸŽ‰ The new pool is on Polygon & initial liquidity added

  • ๐ŸŽŠ The latest mint has been airdropped on Polygon.

  • ๐Ÿคจ Never used Polygon? Hope you at least got MetaMask! If not, google it.
    If yes, take these easy steps to enable your MM to work on Polygon.

  • โ“ Not seeing the tokens in your wallet? Add this as a "custom token": 0xeaecc18198a475c921b24b8a6c1c1f0f5f3f7ea0

  • ๐Ÿค‘ You can find Seeds & sell them here

    (though its advisable you sell them directly through MM so as to make yourself eligible for an allegedly upcoming airdrop)

  • ๐ŸŒฑ You can plant your Seeds here

    If planting, please plant along with ETH & RAI so as to not dump the price. ๐Ÿ™

  • ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Don't have enough Matic to do anything with your Seeds?
    Let me know & I'll send you some ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  • โ— Want to cash out to an exchange? Youโ€™ll need to exchange Seeds to Matic.

  • ๐Ÿค” Something not working?
    Idk, ask in ๐Ÿšจ-issues-n-ideas

๐Ÿค” Now what?

Now we get more liquidity in there! To save everyone migration gas fees (~$100 to remove from the pool & ~$200 to bridge), weโ€™ll be doing a Bridging Party!

Interested?

  • Send your pSeeds to the MetaFam multisig ๐Ÿ‘‡

    0x3455FbB4D34C6b47999B66c83aA7BD8FDDade638

  • Wait for the announcement of the Bridging Party & maybe attend

  • Wait some more & simply receive Polygon pSeeds ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

๐Ÿคจ And MetaGame in general?

Well, Season 4 is coming to a close in just under a month ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

There is no lack of things happening & yet to happen in the next 3 weeks, especially with the preparation for the fundraise underway ๐Ÿ‘€

Hereโ€™s one ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ A new landing pageโ€ฆ

Canโ€™t properly kick off a fundraise without a nice landing page & the piece of crap I (a non-designer) slapped together almost 2 years ago simply isnโ€™t gonna cut it ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

So, Dave took up designing the new landing page & I started rewriting the copy. Hereโ€™s the draft for the new version of the landing page:

โœ๏ธ Landing Page v2, copy draft

โ€œMetagame is any approach to a game that transcends or operates outside
of the prescribed rules of the game, uses external factors to affect the game,
or goes beyond the supposed limits or environment set by the game.โ€ - From Wiki

Many are waking up to the world-shaping potential of Web3 technologies & grabbing the opportunity to build the future they want to live in ๐Ÿƒ

A revolution is happening online;
will you join or miss out?

๐Ÿง  Web3 technologies allow us to reimagine socioeconomic systems from ground up.

  • A new world is being built but its hard to navigateโ€ฆ

Resources, building blocks & tools are all over the place but the maps are non-existent. There are pitfalls & scavengers, gold rushing cowboys & snake oil salesmen at every corner. Itโ€™s a Wild Web. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

We are at the frontier, charting the uncharted & building the connective tissue between autonomous communities. Helping people like yourself avoid traps, level up & join DAOs where you can make a difference.

We are bringing together the right people & building blocks to create a new kind of socioeconomic system. One that is optimized for human wellbeing rather than profit. That revolves around solving problems & living well, in balance with nature rather than just extraction of value.

To find your metagame means to play life in the most optimal way.
To coordinate with others on building a better world; doing things that create a positive impact, make you happy AND earn you money at the same time.

The revolution will be televized,
but donโ€™t just watch.
Learn, earn & make a difference.

๐Ÿ™ Feedback

I know, I know. Its still a bit cringe & โ€œrough around the edgesโ€. Also, too much text & doesnโ€™t explain things such as what we actually do:

  • Curate knowledge & resources

  • Organize events where people share knowledge & work together

  • Produce content, educational as well as promotional

  • Build technologies, such as MetaSys, MyMeta or MetaOS

  • Put together the pieces - bringing together different building blocks & projects, so that weโ€™re not reinventing the wheel and building a monolithic platform.

And how you can benefit:

  • By learning with us

  • By contributing & earning XP points

  • By getting magic internet money for those XP points

  • By discovering & joining or founding your own DAO after you level up

Still to be both expanded upon, but also trimmed & polished, some of it turned into nice graphics, etc. soonโ„ข๏ธ

Tl;dr - conversion numba go up.

Anyway, all feedback more than welcome! Please comment here or DM me with your thoughts on the text above or any other ideas about it ๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿ’ฐ Fundraise

Though the opening hasnโ€™t been officially announced yet, the preparations for the fundraise are well underway. Things are getting finished, new landing page & deck are being designed & feedback is being processed!

Hereโ€™s the new version of MetaGame for Patrons:

Tl;dr on why we need monies:

Down to become a patron? Through here ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

โ“ Quests & Roles ๐ŸŽฉ

Much to be done & only 3 weeks left in Season 4 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

To add to the importance, we're about to kick off the fundraise & we shouldn't embarrass ourselves in front of the lurking new patrons by fumbling over the roadmap. It looks like its going to be a success, but let's make damn sure that it is.

Without further ado! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

๐ŸŽฉ Open Roles ๐ŸŽฉ

So you're not just about avoiding The Purge, getting the Season 4 Achievement NFT & making a quick buck? You're serious about being one of The 300 of MetaGame? Well grab one of these hats & see how they fit you, why don't ya? ๐Ÿ™ƒ

๐Ÿ™ Normal Roles

Normal roles are entry level roles that anyone can take on without committing too much time or taking on too much responsibility.

  • ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ Builder - An evergreen role, always looking for more TypeScript & other kinds of builders. Know someone? Bring them? Its you but you got frustrated with stale PRs & bad PMing - give us another chance ๐Ÿ˜‡

  • ๐Ÿค— Innkeeper - Another always-in-demand role, but this one requiring less specialized skills. Interested? Go down to the ๐Ÿค—-innkeepers-guild

  • ๐Ÿ“ฃ Shiller - Promote MetaGame & the upcoming fundraise in any adjacent DAO or crypto community

  • ๐Ÿ’ฉ Shitposter - Come up with funny tweets & memes to post on twitter, drop in ๐Ÿค-tweet-arena

  • ๐Ÿง  Educator - Come up with useful knowledge & tips we should be posting from MetaGameโ€™s twitter account, drop in ๐Ÿค-tweet-arena

  • ๐Ÿ“š Librarian - Be a curator of knowledge for MetaGame. Post useful things in in any of the Elevate category channels (๐Ÿง -brain-exchange, ๐Ÿฆพ-skill-bot, ๐Ÿงฎ-tutorials, ๐Ÿง™-wisdom, ๐Ÿ“š-reading, ๐Ÿ‘“-watching or ๐Ÿ’ช-well-being). Participate in & facilitate upkeep & creation of new Great Houses & Playbooks

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Deputy roles

Deputy roles are more important, thus come with some responsibility & commitment. You will be working with Champions.

  • ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ Shillers Guild Deputy - Help with anything related to the promotion of MetaGame. Team up with Anna & ask her what she needs help with or come up with your own ways of promoting then explain it in ๐Ÿฅ -shillers-guild

  • ๐Ÿค‘ Rainmakers Guild - With the upcoming fundraise, we could definitely use more people that are willing to help with it. Perfect for patrons that are looking to make an additional impact & shill us to their potential-patron friends

  • ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Headhunters Guild - They scour hackathons, related communities & job board as well as spread the word elsewhere, to make sure that open roles are being filled. Start doing it or ask about it in ๐Ÿ•ต-headhunters-guild

  • ๐ŸŒ‰ Bridgebuilders Guild - Bridgebuilders are about making connections between MetaFam & other guilds, both "MetaGame guilds" & those that haven't been onboarded yet. Its perfect for those that are active in multiple DAOs or know many DAOs & want to bring them closer together.

  • ๐ŸŽจ Artists Guild - We're trying to make MetaGame into "an intersection of technology, philosophy & art". Well, we need more art! There is no lack of art that needs to be made, just ask about it in ๐ŸŽจ-artists-guild

  • ๐Ÿ‘˜ MetaMerch - This art should also get on all sorts of "wearables" & other physical items. Could be a shirt, could be a portable eco-friendly ashtray.

  • ๐Ÿงš XP Fairies - This one's for those who get frustrated with the injustices in the XP system. Sourcecred is great but its not a panacea & there are problems that can be fixed, things that can get balanced! Ask ๐Ÿค—-innkeepers-guild & help.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Champion roles

Champion roles are of highest importance and highest commitment & responsibility roles. There are requirements that need to be taken seriously.

  • ๐Ÿ™Œ Meetup Master - For those that care about making sure the Community Gatherings are set up & general knowledge exchange facilitated, whether through scheduling talks or workshops based on ๐Ÿง -brain-exchange' or Librarian's feedback

  • โ“ Re:Quests Champion - One of the most important roles. Its about making sure that quests are written as they arise, well explained & distributed. They scrape Notion & work closely with other champions to know what their needs

  • โœ”๏ธ AchievMinter - Keeps track of ๐Ÿ”ฎ-guild-n-raid-reports, ๐Ÿ˜‡-did-a-thing & ๐Ÿ™Œ-give-thanks, collaborates with ๐Ÿงš-xp-fairies-guild to make sure people who do great things are rewarded with achievement NFTs

  • ๐Ÿค– Bot Army - Bot army champion does what bot army champions do - work on bots. The needs for bots are many & varied, there is much to do.

  • ๐Ÿง  Hivemind Champion - Works closely with librarians & meetup masters as well as the guilds from wider MetaGame to make sure that the knowledge is being exchanged, newsletters & people are all plugged in with the ultimate goal of fully tapping into the collective intelligence through raids such as Asketh & nice interfaces.

Any questions or problems or questions?

โ€ผ๏ธ NOTE โ€ผ๏ธ

If youโ€™re not an Engaged Octo or a Player, you wonโ€™t be able to access the channels required to ask about or complete the roles or quests.

Please follow this path.

Onwards! ๐Ÿ™

Donโ€™t worry, next week, youโ€™ll get a full update on what weโ€™ve been up!

But in case youโ€™re still unaware, we got 2 cool guests representing their projects every Community Gathering. If you havenโ€™t been following, youโ€™ve been missing out. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Luckily! Pronoia had you covered & recorded the past X Community Gatherings

Coming up this week:

All other meets as per usual schedule!

Much love โค๏ธ,
peth
