Status: Proposal Author(s): BenStoneski
Created: 11 December 2021
Discussions-to: Limited due to confidentiality
Implementation (optional): January 2022
Buzzed Bears look for investment opportunities and DroneNFTs.io is the perfect chance to combine two fucking awesome things… Drones and NFTs. I would like to offer a 25% ownership stake in DroneNFTs to Buzzed Bears in exchange for 12.5 ETH to help with the startup costs, marketing, and contribution payments to those that want to assist with this Company. Contributions not to exceed 2.5 ETH per month. Monthly forum for discussion and status updates required.
This proposal is to seek out both initial investments via monetary contributions from the honeypot as well as solicit the community to build out the go-to-market strategy and execution of the Company.
Buzzed Bears have over $1M in the DAO and at current prices of $4k per ETH, the investment would approximate $50,000. I have purchased the domain and paid to have my website guy build out the site that will be a place for Drone Pilots as well as other digital artists that are not familiar with Crypto / NFTs to submit their photography, videography, and digital artwork on the blockchain for review, pricing, and minting.
I currently own TopShot Aerial Photography, LLC, an Indiana based Drone company. We have grown the Company 18x since 2016 and have some really great things going on. However, throughout my time with TopShot, my business partner and I have held full time jobs while trying to grow the Company. After 8+ years in public accounting, I have decided to resign from my job (timing TBD) and pursue my passion of entrepreneurship in both TopShot, DroneNFTs, and other small business consulting. I have a lovely wife, a 2.5-year-old son and new daughter who is six months, so the thought of turning down a well-paying salary and going out on my own is a bit scary. But as my degenerate friends like to say, “Scared money, don’t make money” or “You have to spend money to make $money$” .
Things that DroneNFTs will need:
- Management, Strategic direction and oversight of business
- Marketing / Sales support
- Digital Artist outreach (transform non-crypto artists to Crypto)
- Process and form submission automation
- Guidance on best processes and chains to mint high quality photos, video, and digital artwork on the blockchain
- NFT Platform knowledge and support (OpenSea / Coinbase)
- Hard work and collaboration
- Love and support
Being the first to market is important. A community working together towards building a successful business is one the coolest things that I could think of for a DAO. If we can bring talented drone pilots and digital artists to the space and help them make money…everybody wins.
I currently own 34 bears and have been a (mostly quiet) Buzzed Bear supporter from minting. I have also submitted my resume to the Buzzed Bears within Bip-015 for consideration to be the HoneyPot manager. This submission is related to the above proposal as I strongly believe that if I was to have some compensation from the Buzzed Bears to pay the bills, we can build out accounting / finance functions within Buzzed Bears (already approved proposal) and build DroneNFTs into a successful business. One of the things I like the most about Buzzed Bears is the thought that the community is all about multiple streams of revenue; this is a great opportunity to get into something on the ground level.
12.5 ETH to be provided for 25% ownership in DroneNFTs.io to help with the startup costs, marketing, and contribution payments to those that want to assist with this Company. The contributions and use of funds should not exceed 2.5 ETH (or $10,000 per month) which will allow for at least 5 months of runway (likely much more). Additional contributions unlikely and would require separate proposal.
Let’s build a viable business with reoccurring revenue… together
None - I believe we are one of the first to market. #DroneNfts
