The platform will allow any common goods organization to easily introduce digital representations of the goods they curate, in the form of NFTs.
The purpose of this project is to build, deploy and test a platform that implements an economy for funding and curating common goods that directly tackles the tragedy of the commons, whereby users obtain a benefit from funding the commons that is much closer to 100% (if not higher, as we will argue) than to 1/N.
The project will set the initial focus on connecting common goods to the videogames industry, the latter being a huge growing industry (approaching $200Bn revenues in 2021) with incredible flexibility in terms of introducing novel engagement mechanics. While details of the solution are provided in the next section, the objective is:
To provide a platform, easy to use for common goods curators and videogame developers, whereby gamers can obtain direct profit from improvements of the real curated goods. By doing so, it will aim at significantly improving the funding of certain common goods as well as to improve the retention, loyalty and commitment of their contributors.
Using novel evolutive-NFT technology, it will be easy for the common goods curator to evolve the characteristics of the NFT, for example, to mimic changes in the actual physical good, e.g., to improve, deteriorate, etc.
