Madeium is becoming the world’s first Design DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), built to reset the foundation of creativity for artists, creatives, and makers. The convergence of independent design and emerging technology have created ripe conditions for creatives to control their IP and profit directly from their work like never before. Join in the conversation on the Madeium Discord server as we work with the creative community to move toward decentralization in five steps.
We believe that not all design is created equal. So much so that we only approve very best talent for our Pro accounts. The Pro accounts feature creatives that have proven they can take a concept all the way to the consumer with in-market success. These curated Pro accounts unlock advantages that provide infrastructure and resources so that creatives can spend less time on business and more time.
Community first. We view a strong community as foundational and essential for Madeium’s long-term success. As creatives ourselves, we believe that the artists, creatives, and makers are the ones that produce the vast majority of wealth and we want that wealth to stay with the community, resulting in a true democratization of creativity. We will incentivize through bounties, grants, rough consensus, and/or permissioned voting models.
Our community is made up of design leaders from diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and industries. Also included are our developers, collectors, and proponents of blockchain technology. We operate with full transparency because these are the same people that are going to be making the decisions for the entire creative community in the near future. If you are an expert in fostering, growing, and nurturing communities, we’d love to get you involved today.
The tokenomics is yet to be determined as we are working with the community to develop and distribute tokens that incentivize actions and behaviors that benefit the overall community long-term. Permissioned distribution of tokens will be on a limited basis to those contributing system value.
With eyes toward self-governance there are countless token considerations with overarching implications that all center around the creative community. We don’t want to create “hollow” tokens of little intrinsic value. Instead, we are focused on tokens that are packed with utility and that build toward creative community-owned solutions we all need.
Madeium is built on the pure concept that creatives have ideals that innately make them the best people to self-govern the Web3 space. By nature, creatives are guided by humanity, knowledge sharing, doing what’s right for your fellow creatives, and leveraging creative capital for the benefit of society. Come and join the community, participate in the discussion, and help us collectively find the self-governance model that unlocks the new wave of creativity for the next 300 years.
Madeium becomes the first community-run Design DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). The full Madeium platform including, memberships, partnerships, tools, and NFT Marketplace will transition from centralization to decentralization. The creative community and its leadership will take ownership and will answer only to the creative community.
If you have an opinion, want to find out more, be part of the process, or want to help, we want to connect with you. Join us over on the Madeium Discord server and let’s build the creative future together.
