What. A. Year!
Bright Moments was created one year ago, on-chain, as a Wyoming DAO. From a single brick wall with three screens underneath the Venice sign, to a journey Around The World In 10,000 NFTs, we have formed the nucleus of something very special.
All that, and we’re just getting started!
If you are just hearing about Bright Moments for the first time, Bright Moments is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that delivers unforgettable IRL minting experiences and cultural moments through NFT galleries around the world. We support our own PFP project (Crypto Citizens) and an emerging creator class of on-chain generative artists.
As we start to think about Bright Moments’ second year, we wanted to share a bit more about where we’re headed and also make an exciting announcement.
Our core commitment is to build a global community of Crypto Citizens by going around the world in 10,000 NFTs. Unlike many other PFP projects that drop their entire collection all at once, Bright Moments is building its community slowly by providing local communities in cities like LA, NY, Berlin and London the opportunity to join the DAO by minting live in one of our galleries, (or picking one up on the secondary market.)
Every Crypto Citizen NFT holder is not only a member of the DAO with equal rights, equal say and equal footing, but also receives unique benefits such as opportunities for Golden Token airdrops for future Crypto Citizen cities or NFTs from artists such as Tyler Hobbs.
As we move through each new city, we look for ways to innovate both the NFTs and the IRL minting experience. In Berlin, each NFT will include its own generative music soundtrack, and the collection of 100 Crypto Berliners minted each night will combine into an incredible techno symphony.
Our second year will also see Bright Moments increase our focus on NFT art with Collections, a new curated series of artist drops in each city we mint. Our first Collection, the Berlin Collection, will feature 10 artists across 10 nights in April at Kraftwerk with artists such as Jeff Davis, Alida Sun and Casey Reas.
Today we’re announcing the formation of Bright Moments’ first sub-DAO, Bright Opportunities DAO, an NFT and Web3 investment DAO.
The formation of Bright Opportunities DAO, which is being supported by Tribute Labs, will provide a vehicle to:
Due to legal requirements, Bright Opportunities DAO will be limited to 99 accredited investors from the Bright Moments’ Crypto Citizen community.
While the number of community members that can directly participate is limited by regulation, there are a number of ways that the overall community will benefit from the opportunities DAO.
At Bright Moments we are constantly looking for ways to add value to the community treasury and have identified several areas where sub-DAOs may unlock additional value and help Bright Moments focus exclusively on its core mission to create unforgettable IRL minting experiences.
Some of the value that we can unlock through new sub-DAOs include:
Each of these areas represent existing value within Bright Moments that can be unlocked for Crypto Citizens through the evolution of new DAO structures.
On March 28th we will take a snapshot of all Crypto Citizens for eligibility to submit an application, and will open up for applications the next day on March 29th.
The Bright Opportunities DAO will begin accepting contributions from approved members on April 11th.
Individual members who meet the accreditation and compliance criteria can join by contributing 20 ETH for up to 100,000 tokens in the DAO, up to a limit of 900,000 tokens. (And please note that these tokens will initially only be transferable between Bright Opportunities DAO members).
If you meet the accreditation and compliance criteria and are interested in participating in Bright Opportunities DAO, please indicate your interest here.
We are proud and excited that you are on this journey with us as we continue to innovate and push the boundaries of how DAOs can be structured, and how they can unlock value for their communities of members.
Thank You! See you in Berlin!
