How can I help? πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»

@ ETH San Francisco I stopped by the Ape Coin booth and was reminded of the philosophy/vision for Ape Coin: A token made to support the evolution of art, gaming, entertainment, digital and physical events, storytelling, and everything else web3 dreams up.

I have a background in music and video production. I have been coding for 5 years now. Did full stack development bootcamp and a solidity bootcamp. Ready to build! :rocket:

Welcome, JS! I think you’ll find a number of initiatives that are to your liking. Selfishly, :sweat_smile: I’d draw your attention to mine! It’s music based, a decentralized record label that

  1. cuts the fat from crappy music contracts &
  2. works as a job creator for Apes interested in all aspects of the music business, not just performance!

I’m doing my best to combine the efforts of many Apes and Ape projects on this, and if you see a fit, I’d love your comments and inspiration on it. Here’s the link: AIP-143: Bluetail, Apecoin DAO's Decentralized Record Label

Hope to hear your thoughts!

That is sick!! Bluetail vision is on point :fire:

I am actively working on a Latin music NFT marketplace: www.asumadre.io

Focus is helping musicians first onboard by making a wallet, make their smart contracts pro bono until traction is built, and curate a :fire: playlists/collection of artists.

Still a work in progress. If you scroll to bottom you’ll find my code repo. I deployed this on the Celo testnet.

I planned on launching on Nov. 17 (Latin Grammy date) on mainnet but time and funding is what I need to be able to build this full time.

Congrats on your soon-to-be launch.

If you’re looking for funding, this is a must read: ApeCoin DAO Governance

Perhaps you should get on the call I’m having soon with @Amplify for Bluetail. You will get to meet other Apes interested in music and learn about the proposal process. DM if interested!

Welcome to the DAO @jos3 and thanks for stopping by the Apecoin Booth at ETH-SF - shoutout Halina and crew. Looks like you already have a project to get involved in, congrats.

Quick-tip to being a truly valuable member in the DAO is Homework:

And your homework is to spend a day going back through all the AIPs - read the proposals, the comments, the follow-ups and get to learn the process and the funkiness of Discourse.

This archaeological digging will not only help you understand the DAO but place you in a rarified group of token holders to have done so - sorry no POAPs for this :laughing: - at least not yet.

Obvs your choice to do so or not – it’s not mandatory, although it should be.

Again welcome - look forward to your contributions.

Peace :v:t4:

Welcome to the DAO and forum @jos3 glad to have you! Many ideas are Music centred, Mantis would be the best person that comes to mind in regards to the topic, if you have an idea that you think is worth funding the DAO can potentially help with that! :gorilla:

This is amazing, and truly shows the power of IRL events in the Web3 ecosystem! I love that you were essentially onboarded IRL at the ETH SF hackathon!

I’m sure you’ve been reached out to by now by many active contributors and I wanted to echo the sentiment that you are incredibly welcome here! We look forward to all that you have to offer and contribute! :heart:

If anything specific comes up, you can bet I have you on a list of interested devs for engaging projects! Thank you for being here, and again WELCOME!!! :heart_hands:

You’re the best Logically!! You did an amazing job organizing our recent Bay Area Apes meetup and the event was such a great catalyst for friendships to form :cherry_blossom:

I thought it was so cool I randomly met Skvll the 13 year old hacker with his family, and now only a couple weeks later they’re the grand prize winners for all of ApeCoin DAO x ETH SF :gem::butterfly::cherry_blossom:
