Kingdom Building Program

Updated Sept 19, 2022

The Kingdom Building Program exists to drive innovation for the benefit of the DFK game, the DFK community players, and the blockchain experience. It is one way we listen to the needs and desires of the community, in addition to reinforcing their efforts and supporting their ideas.

Kingdom Building Program Scope

  • Enhance the overall DFK experience
  • Create utility for DFK NFTs and tokens
  • Improve overall blockchain and multichain experience
  • Innovate the DeFi, P2E, or NFT space
  • Focus on empowering individuals and groups within the DFK community

If you would like a consultation with a member of the Impact Initiative Team to discuss your ideas or to receive feedback on a proposal or application you are interested in submitting, please fill out this form and we will schedule a meeting with you.

Current Scope of Kingdom Building Program

When we learned that we would no longer be receiving funds from the Harmony grant, we were disappointed, but chose to move forward with our own budget including charity efforts, builders program management, forum and support site development, and setup costs. However, when the Harmony bridge hack took place, the treasury funds budgeted for this work were lost. Our funds and revenue are currently dedicated to our primary DFK objectives of Crystalvale parity, Kingdom Studios funding, and exploring location options for Serendale. Unfortunately this means that for the time being we will not be able to support grant proposals with funding.

However, as you know we keep building no matter what the market or the world is doing. Moving forward we will use the Kingdom Building Program to coordinate proposals and requests not related to funding. This includes proposals for how to build on the DFK game, how to build on the DFK blockchain, and how to use DFK NFTs and tokens outside of the DFK game. Proposal submissions related to funding are paused until funding becomes available. Proposals recommending changes to the DFK game, its tokenomics, or to anything related to Kingdom Studios will be referred to the DFK Rapidr feedback site: https://dfk.rapidr.io/.

The KB program also facilitates applications for co-marketing. This includes listing a service, a game, or organization dedicated to supporting DFK, the DFK community, or that uses DFK assets. Requests can be made to be listed in the DFK game (under the Jester or Archivist NPCs) and/or on the DFK website. In some cases a smart contract audit may be required to help minimize risk for the DFK community. Our hope is that this effort will increase the success of all services and games connected to DFK.

Additionally, the KB program processes applications for third parties to use the Master Raffle system in their game. This allows raffle tickets to be purchased at a discount, awarded to players in their game, and redeemed in DFK, benefiting both parties.

All proposals and applications are submitted on the KBP site and viewable by the public. As funding is no longer part of the process, most proposals and applications will be processed and approved by the Kingdom Building Committee and not require a community vote. The committee members are SunBear, Frisky Fox, Dreamer of Dreams, Beetle Dude, Bolon Soron, and Magnus Ironroot. This new process allows us to expedite responses and approvals. Proposals and applications will only be considered if they comply with DFK terms of service and guidelines. All feedback and approvals will be posted on the KBP site for the public to see.
