B.A.E. means “Bootstrapping Arts and Engineering”, a novel way for creators of IP, technology, and creators of copyright to form a powerful new type of asset with explosive properties, called CopyCake.
BAE is a community distributive design that takes funds made from the sale of art and distributes that wealth to engineering startups, who distribute equity back to the copyright of the art. What makes this distributive type of community game possible are smart contracts, which apply the distributive property of a blockchain.
BAE is an algorithmic and even computational production of a “win-win” distributive engine for funding and co-funding in the arts and sciences that can be built up by well formed communities of artists, designers, engineers and creators.
We call it BAE funding but its style is a new type of “narrative funding”, using story and art to fund a purpose or a mission.
Our fund is gamified. In our pilot fund, just launched November 11, 2022, we will raise $141M, with $94M awarded to the community and $47M towards the purpose.
We have successfully closed Act 1, which has sold out. This concludes a successful “proof of concept” for the BAE fund and all of our claims are demonstrable, live, transparent and in real time.
You can read the whitepaper for the BAE fund here.
The dynamics of the fund contains an explosive property, if you purchase a work in our collection you will control twice that amount in the BAE co-fund, sent directly to each wallet. This creates a community funding game of wholesale and retail. Purchase a scene for retail price includes the distribution sales contract for the following scene in BAE.
Fund BAE for 1x and BAE funds you for 2x
This explosive dynamic allows for a decentralized “win-win” ad-hoc approach to community funding, production and distribution, where individuals, projects, companies all begin to fund each other through trading and acquiring the narrative scenes in Why not World Game.
The unique innovation in DAO structures allows different types of economic forces to collaborate; “nonprofit and for profit”, individuals or startups, organizations of any kind can all collaborate in one swiftly moving vehicle that funds, broadcasts, and distributes itself around a shared purpose.
Big Mother’s DAO is introducing a new way to apply smart contracts as a tool for bundling various types of real world contracts together into one simple asset that can be created and sold by a community.
Our fund is fully and legally compliant with both US Securities Law and US Copyright Law.
Piloting A into P
Our fund is applying an organizing principle for the flow of funds and resources through a marketplace medium called A into P, which allows for rewarding distribution of funds through a supply and demand marketplace, trading in wholesale and retail prices.
BAE is a just a pilot of how such marketplaces can work, as we have designed an entire A into P marketplace for at the attention economy and BAE is funding this roadmap.
A creative studio that hosts a community of artists of some kind is also necessary for this new type of fund, as well as a design lab comprised of engineers.
This gamification allows for a fun “synergy” to intermix inside a community of artists designers and engineers.
In return for this unique funding opportunity, startups who are partners who form equity assets in the DAO pledge to register on RegA+ Crowdfunding marketplaces or similar and avoid Angel/VC/IPO pathway with an alternative.
This allows a community to both design and build a shared asset that reflects the value and ownership of the community, presenting a type of “plural money” that is hedged with many community assets all bundled into one smart contract and distributed as a unique work of art that tells a narrative across nine scenes in a performance.
