Hi everyone, we were discussing how to find and choose new themes for Curio Card submissions for future votes in the Telegram group today. Expanding the conversation here now, please reply with any ideas / suggestions you have - looking forward to see what the community can come up with.
Right now we are accepting any kind of cards, but prompts or themes would help artists find creative direction. For now we can just dump any theme ideas into the chat/forum, but eventually there should be a structure around topic selection – we can figure out the best way to do this as we try things.
Some of the ideas we bounced around earlier are below.
Ongoing & Current Events inspired submissions are important to include, such as:
Crypto News, ( When Katy Perry did the crypto fingernails, ETC ). Or even general themes such as ‘Penguins’.
We could vote on topics on a seasonal / periodic basis and do contests or promotions for each - Like a group art show we curate together. The community would submit and vote on themes for said ‘shows’ as well as vote on the artwork to be included in the set.
Recurring submission deadlines would work well for seasonal, holiday & event themes.
Like lets all design a piece/set for the spring show, ETC
Ideas to promote and spread the Curio Card project such as:
“draw your interpretation of the mascot, Curio the Raccoon”
'The First Meta-Data Card’
Travis suggested an idea for a themed contest to promote the Version 2 of Curio Cards:
_“ Working on version 2 of the card contract now, and the main new feature is it will let artists include a lot of extra text data. Right now the card contract only contains the image reference. _
We could do a contest for who gets to be the first v2 card, with meta data like artist description, etc, included. The contest could also help find some cool uses for the new feature."
Travis has also figured out a potential voting system using Blockchain verification on a burn address which would require a small cost of ETH to discourage people from casting multiple votes and avoid classic ballot box stuffing issues - this would also be upgrade-able.
