W3N Blockchain x Studio Mirai x ICON Community

BACKGROUND

Studio Mirai is collaborating with Web3 Narva (W3N) to bring the ICON Community to the edge of Europe! Since the event is based in Narva, Estonia; the majority of the projects that we are looking to bring to the event are based in Europe. Some exceptions, members of ICON Foundation and Studio Mirai, are based outside of Europe. We will be utilizing Craft Network NFTs for the ticketing as well as create an onboarding process with Hana Wallet at the entrance of the event. We can only do this with the community’s support. Today we are seeking 16,500 bnUSD to create a global stage for projects in the ICON Ecosystem.

Along with the actual event, we also have the MiraiMeets side event. MiraiMeets is a super hyped special event at the end of Day 2. It will feature giveaways, networking, presentations and more fireside chats. In order to enter, event participants will need to download the Hana Wallet and show their ticket NFT. We have gathered a number of prizes consisting of ICX, USD, NFTs and merchandise totaling over 25,000 $ICX!

4. Pitching Contest

Details: Startups at any stage of their development looking to raise funds are welcome to apply. Your startup’s business model should be scalable and the mission should be strong. It isn’t just about tokenizing or putting everything on the blockchain - you should have a clear vision of why you’re doing and how it’s better than legacy alternatives. Having a working product with traction/feedback, a strong team, and being ready for investment will definitely give you a boost, but is not a strict requirement.

Eric Solomon, the Technical Lead for ICON Foundation will be a participating judge for this contest.

Q/A

1. Why can’t NFT Projects fund themselves?
Answer: In this market, it is really difficult for NFT projects to fund themselves. Quite frankly, many of these projects consist of many team members and in the current stages; aren’t exactly profitable. NFT Projects bring a variety and interest to the ICON Ecosystem. We want to utilize the CPS and the community’s support to bring such interest to a global stage.

2. What topics will ICON members cover during the event? Will we get enough USP to consider funding this?
Answer: Well of course! Our MiraiMeets Side Event only accessible by having a Hana Wallet + Craft NFT. On top of that, we have members from the foundation & Staky team talking about Interoperability, BTP, what you can build on ICON, why you should build on ICON and how you can build on ICON.

3. What’s in it for us? :smiley:
Answer: Well, we consider any P-Reps that approve our proposal to be sponsors. By that measure, we will be featuring these projects on our marketing material as well as mentioning the projects during our presentations and MiraiMeets event.

4. Why CPS?
Answer: “A community event made possible by the community,” sounds pretty good right? I believe the CPS is a massive selling point for developers and community members to utilize when joining the ICON ecosystem. We (Studio Mirai) has used the CPS to kickstart Mirai Media and revolutionize video content creation in ICON. If we add “bringing the ICON Community to the edge of Europe in it’s first community event,” it makes it even better. CPS is a great tool for both Web2 and Web3 users to onboard into our ecosystem.

All this is only costing 18k? Awesome work all!
