DFK Guilds Architecture - Building the Community’s Foundation
Guilds within DefiKingdoms have long been talked about as a future feature of the ecosystem. Being able to band together with players, quest, trade and fight in autonomous member-controlled community organisations.
However, apart from the exclusive and somewhat mysterious DFK DAO, no significant group has formed within the community outside of some Discord channels and content creators, which have served as informal knowledge and social networks.
I want to present an opportunity to port over and integrate an existing project into the DefiKingdoms ecosystem and kick-start the community collectivisation!
Babylon is a social investing framework developed on the Ethereum network. It allows custodians to create investment clubs called Gardens, that invest into the DeFi space on behalf of their members. Strategists propose different theses and strategies, whilst every member has a vote in the operation and parameters of the Garden.
It aims to build communities around common investment and strategic goals, whilst entrusting responsibility to the knowledgeable and innovative users to steer the Gardens and increase the returns of all members.
The Babylon App has in-built features to allow communities to interact with smart contracts, vote on proposals, discuss strategies and pool resources together. It is also integrated with Discord and provides a sleek browser UX with performance analytics and a high level of security built in.
/DFK Guilds by Babylon/
Now, to connect my points and present my thesis.
DFK has the opportunity to port over ready-made architecture to build up Guilds in a quick and secure manner. Babylon is EVM compatible, highly-secure, and is in the final process of being completely open source.
Building on the infrastructure that Babylon provides, the DFK Guilds can be customised to interact with DFK contracts; hold NFTs and give the users the ability to stake heroes into the Guild for membership privileges; hold LP positions based on community sentiment; vote for proposals, strategies and office holders; Proof of Membership NFTs and shares to own a stake of the Guild; token rewards that could be paid out in DFK native tokens; link to an exclusive Discord channel with automatic bot updates; and finally, all this can be wrapped up in DFKs unmistakable art style and community spirit!
Providing the Architecture to Build the Community Guilds people have been waiting for.
- 50k USD
- Opportunity for Babylon Finance to match community grant through own Treasury
This would not just be an app sitting on top off or scraping data from DFK, it would be built integrally into the DFK Chain to provide a home for the community.
It would be fully integrated as part of the DFK ecosystem and would present an opportunity for community ownership of the architecture.
Further opportunities to integrate with the Babylon main app including DAO treasuries and DFK focused Gardens.
The opportunity is for a collaboration between the projects to produce a dedicated team for developing and implementing this as a new feature.
I bring Project Management skills and crypto knowledge, but admittedly no technical experience to deliver this.
Babylon offers support for development and integration from Director Ramon Recuero (doxxed) and Security Lead Raul Riesco (doxxed), but will require dedicated developers to deliver the project including technical, art and design teams.
I propose the majority of the grant funds be used to recruit and maintain this team of dedicated developers.
Requests from DFK Team
API and backend access required.
Large initial commitment for Dev consultation that should tail off as the project develops.
Connection to DFK Game and DFK Blockchain
Built on DFK Chain, interact with Gardens, Quests and other In-game contracts.
Use Heroes to stake in the Guild for membership and other benefits.
Hold NFTs and trade within the Guild.
Further incentivise participation with DFK token rewards and bonuses.
