OMG Anon, you missed the 1.0 launch?! Check this
Seriously tho! If you haven't read the previous one or a few, you should really read this one 😄
On the 8th of October, we launched MetaGame 1.0. Of course not everything went according to the plan, of course we had some screw-ups but of course we pulled through. 🙃 Here’s what’s up, what’s up next & how to get involved!
Wait, WTF is MetaGame?
Hey, welcome to 1k new subscribers 👋 10k subs LFG! 🚀
For the fresh; MetaGame is a massive online coordination game with the goal of finding the most optimal ways to play life on a personal as well as the collective level.
Just consider it a real-life MMO-RPG & know we’re currently producing educational & other media, organizing events & overall, building the onboarding for the DAO space & a network of DAOs as well as an operating system for composable communities, a modular front-end for web3 legos.
Maybe check out the above interview & and cya in there?
After 3 years in the making (& only $250k in funding), we have finally shipped MG 1.0. MetaGame is now a complete platform with a proper onboarding flow & much more.
This means people may finally fall down the rabbit holes of Web3, Game B, Metamodernism and MetaGame itself; onboard into MetaGame & start contributing, again, all through a nice interface - rather than Discord + Notion 😅
Note: this doesn’t mean every piece of MetaGame is 1.0, just that all the pieces required for 1.0 are finally in place (The Onboarding Game & Quest Chains missing until now)
Why it matters? 👇
This makes the whole thing click & become more fun to use, together with a bunch of other, previously unnoticed features - such as the Dashboard.
MetaGame becomes a functional, well-rounded platform.
People may finally understand, join & work in MetaGame or proceed to the rest of the ecosystem in an easy & fun way.
People tell us they got their first NFT or joined the DAO ecosystem through MetaGame - this will allow us to do that at scale.
Why else is it so significant to me?
As a non-technical founder with 0 funding, 0 experience & only a vague vision, shipping MetaGame 1.0 was hard. I had to convince people that this vague vision of a random nobody was worth their time.
To work on this vague vision for close to nothing, in a space full of $$$ 😬
After 2 years in the making, we raised $250k, about 50 of which were mine 😅
This was finally gonna get a few people working full time, until the market took a turn & our token went to shit along with the treasury 😂
Over the years tho…
People came, people left, but some stuck around.
Over time, this is what came out.
A whole damn platform.
Along with a shitload of gatherings & content, a few bigger events, a great community & a network of projects.
I’ve gathered missionaries rather than mercenaries & built something that cannot die by running out of money, at the cost of being slow as fuck to ship.
Over the next weeks, we’ll be tying up loose ends & starting a proper fundraise.
I think its time to add fuel to the fire & make this thing go 10x faster 🙃
Let’s do this shit! ✊
What’s next for MetaGame
Now that 1.0 is out, we need to octofy; spread our tentacles further into the ecosystem & the outside world, onboard more people & projects into MetaGame etc.
Fix remaining bugs & polish the UI
Push out more educational content & onboarding paths; shill MetaGame to onboard more people into the DAO space
Onboard a bunch more DAOs into MetaGame & go hard on MetaOS integrations both in terms of integrating more Web3 legos into MetaOS as well as deploying MetaOS for other DAOs 👀
There’s a whole thread going deeper on everything else that needs to be done short & mid-term, before we get to Phase II…
What do you mean Phase II?
Yeah, MetaGame is still in Phase I - The Seed Phase.
The Seed Phase revolves around building “an onboarding machine” & a “decentralized factory” for the DAO space.
When we reach Phase II, MetaGame shall be:
A flow for onboarding people to/through MetaGame & into the DAO/Web3 space.
A hub for people interested in decentralized organizations & applications.
A place where anyone interested in building a project or providing a service in the DAO ecosystem can find their place, coordinate with others & thrive.
So far so good! 1.0 marks the completion of the onboarding flow & we already got a decent amount of learning resources as well as projects to explore. We’ve built up a decent sized community & network as well as the subscription list. 🤷♂️
The transition to Phase II is set to happen at MetaFest IRL. 👀
ETA ~8 months.
👑 Become a founder!
As MetaGame is still in Phase I for the next ~8 months, there is still time for you to become a founder or a founding funder of MetaGame &/or climb up the ranked leagues to achieve legendary status, unlock legendary achievements & perks etc.
Interested in becoming a founding funder?
Well that’s fairly straightforward. Just scroll down through here 👈🙃
Interested in becoming a founder?
Sure! You could even be both!
🤏 Minimal Viable Activation
Unsure about what to do? It might be best to simply jump down the rabbit hole through the main landing page & take in the whole experience.
Especially if you tried it on launch & it it didn’t work - give it another go 🙃
It will guide you both through understanding MetaGame as well as how to play it.
Other than that…
Easiest things to do:
Tell us what you’re interested in learning or teaching in 🧠-brain-exchange
Go through the whole onboarding flow & let us know what you think
Join MetaGame’s Dework org to help us rank higher on the discovery page
Come to the Community Gathering & record it 🙏🙏🙏
More things to do:
Check out the MetaGame 1.1 design & build board
Onboard a DAO into MetaGame or shill MetaOS to other communities
If you got purged for being inactive, you’re probably still among The 300 of MetaGame according to the leaderboard; it won’t take much to get active again to retain & lock your founder status once we transition to Phase II 😉
If you’ve been a fan of MetaGame for a long time, now is the time to show it 🙏
You might’ve noticed there is no Chainlog, MetaAlliance & Meta sections 👀
Worry not! That’s because the newsletters became too damn long & we’re splitting it up into multiple 🙃
You might’ve also noticed we got the Community Gatherings rolling again 😇
This Friday, we prepared a good one for you:
Maybe like, retweet & join us? 😁
Much love ❤️,
