Gnarly News #15


Welcome back, everyone! You know how it goes, you're about to get stoked with what's happening in Gnarnia!

Gnars are a new way to fund extreme athletes

We prefer a world where kids aren't sold energy drinks by their heroes. So as a community of action sports enthusiasts, we've formed a DAO to rethink how extreme athletes get sponsored.

Gnars are NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain

Based on Nouns open source and CC0 artwork, they're stored fully on-chain with no external dependencies. Each one gets you a DAO vote and memberships are available at auction, forever.

Gnars are dedicated to supporting the artistry of extreme athletes

News and Updates

That’s Gnarly

The platform MVP has been live for nearly a week now! Vlad’s ‘Ode to Mark Gonzalez’ was voted as the first open edition to be minted on the platform and brought in 1.08 ETH! This is an additional 0.54 ETH deposited into the treasury and marks the beginning of a new era for Gnars DAO. We will continue exploring alternate streams of revenue and decentralized content curation by the community. This is just the beginning of the Revolution! Check out the daily drop at 9:30pm EST and tune into the new daily Gnars O’ Clock show celebrating the daily drop on The Noun Square!

First Gnars Droposal!

The first Gnars ‘droposal’ is live! Inspired by Nouns Proposal 190, this is the first NFT open edition launched by Gnars DAO via proposal. The mint will remain open for the next 3 days, so don’t miss your chance to mint a piece of history!



We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!
