Founder’s Complaint: What Has Moonbirds Done This Year to Make People Disheartened?Founder's Complaint: Has Moonbirds Disappointed People This Year?

What a wild and tumultuous few months… Half of the year has already passed, and I’d like to release a tweet to introduce the latest status of Moonbirds.
Starting from the beginning of this year, I wanted to challenge myself truly and answer some very important open-ended questions. So on January 5, 2023, I posted this on Discord to the Moonbirds community:
- Global Coin Research: How to create a sustainable Web3 game economy model
- Canadian woman creates a metaverse law firm and plans to profit from renting out metaverse properties.
- Gemini co-founder angrily accuses DCG founder: “Scammer, return the money quickly, or we will officially sue DCG and individual.”
Now let’s get to the official introduction. In March, we released Moonbirds’ beliefs and goals: Moonbirds is a PFP for art collectors. At PROOF, we’re committed to creating unique experiences for collectors, enabling them to connect with artists, and own and champion their art.
We’ll continue to develop products that align with our core vision: art support, media, virtual/real-world events, and building meaningful community/artist relationships.
Let me take a moment to share some highlights from the past 6 months: we’ve directly paid artists over $1.6 million and created opportunities for over 70 artists.
This was achieved through a series of events, including Grails III, Evolving Pixels, Diamond Exhibition, Outliers Program, and Archive of Feelings. Additionally, partnerships with Blockingce Verso, Venus over Manhattan, and Transient Labs expanded the reach of artists.
At the same time, we’ve created excellent in-real-life (IRL) experiences. We’ve held events for over 1,500 holders in Tokyo, Austin, New York, and Los Angeles, and sponsored 4 community events.
I’m proud of the two curation trips, one led by Emily Xie and the other by Tyler Hobbs. Offering Moonbirds holders the experience of meeting exceptional artists is a core advantage we’ll continue to double down on.
We’re also launching The Foundry, our experimental physical space in Los Angeles, bringing even more surprises and opportunities for artists and collectors.
PROOF Daily NFT Countdown (launched in collaboration with @punk9059) continues to serve collectors by providing many commonly used market indicators. (Also, let’s not forget about PROOF Weekly)
Our media team has been producing top-notch content for the past 6 months. Our YouTube content has over 46,000 hours of views, and our live performances, market reports, and artist interviews have accumulated hundreds of episodes.
Soon…our new series Mythics will be born. We have hired two outstanding illustrators, Colin and Luke, for Mythics. This is a real-life story about exploring creativity, and it also depicts what happens when fear, uncertainty, and doubt dominate.
Finally, let’s talk about our upcoming incentive system. We have a dedicated team developing incentive systems and researching allocation mechanisms to connect creators and collectors, which will form the foundation of our ecosystem.
Our token will have many use cases, it will be a link between all art, digital, and real-world rewards, allowing holders to connect with what they consider valuable.
We have never wavered in our pursuit of every product, in order to achieve our vision of providing experiences for creators and collectors. TALONS (incentive token) and Mythics are just a part of it, the core product of PROOF should be a more unified whole.
We know we have more room to grow. One thing I want to clarify is that we will not stop iterating until we get the right results. The past six months have not been perfect, but we have laid a solid foundation.
Web3 is a wild world, and we are all looking for our own space to survive in it. But we know who we are, and what drives us – all of you are the key to our success.
