“Bootstrapping Arts and Engineering”, or B.A.E.– is a novel new type of whole-sale/retail art and creative work marketplace built on web3 that can function as a type of crowdfunding, currently being piloted to wonderful success so far in Why not World Game.
This marketplace acts as a narrative distribution system for the underlying creative work, as each work in the marketplace is sold, a portion of the story is told, slowly in a three act structure, the conclusion of which marks the end of the story as well as the closing of the fund.
The more the art work sells, slowly the underlying copyright becomes more and more valuable, especially as it gets bundled with other community created assets, continuing hedging and increasing all community created assets and designs.
The artwork trades on a unique token system called CopyCake™. which allows the creators of the artwork to use their creative works as an instrument for forming partnerships with other members of the community who are building and launching startups. The viewers of the art work become the distributors for the funds in the BAE marketplace. Each purchase distributes the proceeds of the artwork to the engineers and designers for building. The equity value of which is pledged back to the value of the underlying copyright of the artwork, a marketplace of true collaboration and win-win outcomes, a community hedged asset in art.
This unique community design is a demonstration of 9×3 narrative logic, but as played out in a commercial marketplace. What fuels this marketplace is CopyCake––a unique type of smart contract that has a specific manner of copyright registration, and uses this unique type of token as a type of community created money that is based upon art and creative works, trading in the marketplace.
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.
Fund BAE for 1x and BAE funds your project for 2x
The game of BAE allows for this novel property to distribute itself within a decentralized community, where all funds raised from the sell of artwork are distributed 1/3 towards engineering startups and 2/3rds towards the community driven projects or positions within the community.
This distribution happens narratively through nine arcs told through three acts, with each “arc” setting the critical mass for the next arc to emerge organically as well as computationally.
Any startup whom has gone through the cycle of pre-seed, seed, angel and VC understands that each layer builds on top of the previous one. The “story” of a startup forming follows formal narrative arcs and themes which can be expressed through a smart contract.
This explosive dynamic allows for a decentralized “win-win” ad-hoc approach to both governance and production, 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 for decentralized community design structures allows individuals, collectors, investors, institutions, startups, nonprofits and organizations of any kind can all collaborate in one swiftly moving vehicle that funds, broadcasts, and distributes itself around a shared purpose quickly and within compliance.
BAE’s computational dynamics are so hyper-flexible that any condition can be satisfied with multiple options for distribution of community created wealth, all of which are compliant.
Product Class: Novel creator-legal-technological platform
Niche: Allows flexible interchange of blockchain smart contract products with legally compliant IRL structures such as copyright collections, equity shares and revenue distributions.
Use-Case Example: Decentralized community bootstrapping of revenue generating companies (ie decentralized, legally compliant Angel or VC investing rounds). Has a high degree of legal flexibility in how someone holds their stake.
Competitive Edge: Allows investment in highly divisible rounds with in-built mechanisms to reinforce investor-company engagement while providing investors with the flexibility of smart contract executable divestment procedures which can work alongside collectors and creators in a single decentralized marketplace.
This provides a new level of engagement opportunity for small investors while protecting them and the company simultaneously, all while maintaining legal compliance, and in a simple process with all complexity handled behind the scenes.
