This is a big honor for the Big Mother community––CultDAO recently awarded Big Mother a hard won grant, representing the first web3 fund to embrace Big Mother’s approach to initiating the “win-win protocol on the world wide web.”
CultDAO, as a nonprofit , applies Decentralized Venture Capitalism to identify, promote, and fund projects that challenge centralization and work toward positive social changes. CULT has successfully financed 112 distinct projects, totaling almost $3M. You can read a write up about CultDAO in The Economic Times–– and in addition to their notoriety, they are one of the very few web3 projects that is making it through a lot of web3 skepticism during a true “bear” marketplace. Additionally, CultDAO has one of the most genius viral marketing campaigns and they continue unabashedly to grow in popularity, especially with the upcoming release of their Modulus protocol, a new L2 to build on top of for many new developers.
This represents a very important milestone for our community, which began “locally” in Los Angeles and has slowly grown word of mouth via direct introduction or discovery of our projects in a natural and organic fashion. CultDAO is the first community to “discover” our key projects, Aiki Wiki––The Win Win Protocol for the World Wide Web and PiP––private internet content distribution for Decentralized Autonomous Media Networks. The discovery of our projects is no easy task due to their sheer scope in development and vision.
Two members of their volunteer anonymous community, Mudra and Wastelander, discovered us on Twitter in 2022, and we engaged in direct conversations with these individuals, who were remarkably patient in deconstructing our very complex projects, which requires a lot of business and tech savvy and since then, slowly developed more relationships within their community, thanks to their relaying of our projects and rallying those in their community behind it.
Cult’s early interest in our community began with fascination with Aiki Wiki which engineering is currently being funded by their grant, in addition to PiP. Big Mother is developing a decentralized autonomous media network for web3, a private content channel that will exist in between pages of major crypto and web3 internet publishers and CultDAO is the very first community to peer the value of such a venture.
Since, many new friends and partnerships have been emerging between our communities, and it has been an honor to meet so many like minds!
More to be announced over time, thank you CultDAO!
