Thoughts on Community Partners
As we outlined in the soft proposal, Game7 is committed to fostering an altruistic, inclusive community that accelerates blockchain gaming and the supporting infrastructure on which it is built. This community should make collaborative decisions, challenge each other’s perspectives, and ensure inclusivity. No single actor — but, rather, collective buy-in — would determine standards, and ensure acceleration of the industry at large.
Our vision for an interoperable metaverse and gaming economies is expansive. We firmly believe that Game7 can only fulfill its mission if it’s supported by multiple stakeholders who believe in interoperability, collaboration, and altruistic values to advance the blockchain gaming ecosystem at any cost.
After Game7 published the proposal, we were thrilled to receive incredible interest and support from both the crypto and gaming communities. Dozens of interested parties have signed up to contribute and help lead the community.
To select the initial Community Partners and ensure objectivity, we welcome any input on the selection criteria and process. Given that a formal voting process isn’t in place yet, we want to suggest selection criteria to solidify the list of Community Members after the Voting Period if the proposal is approved.
We believe that the initial partners should add tremendous value to Game7 with gaming expertise, technology know-how, and legitimacy. Therefore, we suggest the following criteria to select the initial Community Partners:
Gaming expertise - We are a gaming acceleration community, we need SMEs who live and breathe the gaming world.
Blockchain infrastructure expertise - We need robust infrastructure to power game economies and partners who are committed to building this infrastructure, supporting game developers, and committing to industry standards that foster interoperability across technology stacks.
Industry influence and legitimacy - We need a presence to make a true impact. We should select individuals who are pushing the blockchain gaming industry to become a more sustainable and responsible ecosystem.
We expect a commitment from Community Partners to provide input on Game7’s initiatives, grants, capital deployments, and projects. For Community Partners entities, we suggest delegating a member from the organization.
Time commitment and responsibility
- Periodic partners discussions (likely two to four times per year)
- Advice on critical decisions related to partner’s specific expertise (game design, publishing, technology, marketing, etc)
- Share opportunities with Game7 which fit Game7’s mandate, i.e grants, and deal sourcing
- Review of grants initiatives and investment opportunities on a periodic basis.
- Vote on the inclusion of future Community Partners
As stated in the initial proposal, Community Partners will collectively receive up to 60% of the total community votes. See Community Partners pool.
This is our current thought on choosing the initial set of Community Partners and we’re open to community feedback on how to improve upon it.
