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
Weekly Onboarding Sessions
We will now be hosting a weekly onboarding meeting every Wednesday at 4:00pm EST (6:00pm GMT-3). Experienced members from the community will hang out in a voice chat in discord for an hour to help teach people new to Gnars web3, discord, the governance process, and more. So whether you need help learning how to use a crypto wallet or just navigating the Gnars DAO organization and documentation, we’re here to help. You can RSVP for next week’s meeting here.
Proposal Discussion Meeting
Gnars is coordinating weekly meetings to discuss and review upcoming and active proposals. We would like to gather input from the community to determine the best time to schedule these meetings to accommodate as many members as possible. Please take a minute to vote in the poll in discord.

A new gnarly Nouns proposal - coming soon 👀
We have some exciting proposal ideas in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!
Gnarsauce Hot Sauce
A proposal asking for 0.69 ETH and Gnar 2767 from the treasury to facilitate the package design and cost of a test batch of “Gnarsauce” - a gnars-themed hot sauce to add flavor to your day. It’s perfect for those on fire trying to keep the flames stoked AND for cheering up those having a participation-trophy-only type of day.
Skatehive’s Decentralized Gnars DAO Sponsorship
Skatehive is a web3 skateboarding community on the Hive blockchain (formerly Steemit). This proposal is seeking to purchase and stake 3 ETH worth of Hive tokens, approximately 10,000 tokens at the time of writing. Hive allows for users to earn tokens from their content, and this decentralized sponsorship would help Gnars support content creators and athletes posting to Skatehive. This is a way for Gnars to support athletes and creators without actually needing to use funds from the treasury, as these staked funds will never leave the wallet and will actually grow over time. For a more detailed breakdown please read through the discord thread and snapshot proposal linked below.
Sponsor ProjektStacks Gnars Wheelie Boys! (Stunt Riding)
This proposal was seeking 3 ETH to sponsor a stunt-riding group called ProjektStacks out of Denver, Colorado. The ask was to cover a custom airbrushed Gnars helmet, a variety of merch, equipment and maintenance, and videography.
Sponsor Will Dias (Creative skateboarding)
Will Dias is not only a skateboarder, but also an extremely creative artist, and that really shows in the super unique content he creates. We’re excited to see the gnarly stuff he creates during this sponsorship!
Locals Only Mural in Miami
Gnars member Pin Pusher, who has recently been sponsored for his creation of the Locals Only short animation, painted a wall in Miami during his visit for Art Basel.
Gnars Get Rugged
But not in the way you might be thinking, I’m literally talking about rugs. Check out maty’s tweet below for some gnarly rugs.

In Other Nouns
Prop House rounds are back! We have an open round from both Nouns DAO and Lil Nouns DAO, as well as FIVE open rounds from Builder DAO! One of the most interesting is the Ideas are valuable round, which is rewarding 2 people who propose the best ideas with 5 ETH each for nothing but an idea. They don’t need to have any intent to build this idea, just propose it to the community, and then anyone else can pick up the idea and run with it.Open Round 13 for @nounsdao has just begun. - Anyone with an idea to proliferate Nouns can submit a proposal - DAO members and delegates will vote for their favorites - Top 5 ideas will receive 1 ETH each Submit your proposal here:prop.houseProp HouseGet funded to build with your favorite communities.5 new prop house rounds start tomorrow with over 100 Ξ up for grabs. bring your ideas: prop.house/builderLearn more about the upcoming Nouns Builder @nounsprophouse rounds: ⌐◨-◨ ↳ DAO Incubator ↳ Art Packs ↳ Custom DAO site mandate ↳ Memes & Marketing ↳ Ideas are Valuable https://t.co/c6XYVgjNNR https://t.co/mg0SoEQwOqNouns Builder @nounsbuilder
DCS Pod is live! Funded via Proposal 171, they will be working to help builders scale their proposals into bigger and better things. Read more in their introduction tweet below and be sure to give them a follow.
HeyAnoun has launched! Recently funded through Proposal 150, the product’s goal is to provide a venue for Nouners to express their true thoughts about proposals. They hope to provide greater transparency around the sentiment of proposals by allowing Nouners to give anonymous feedback while verifying that they are in fact owners of one or more Nouns.
Nouns will donate 100 ETH to ZachXBT! Or will they? We’ll see in about a week, as the proposal had to go back on chain for voting due to an unexpected error from the proposer. Many of us learned this for the first time over the past day - if the wallet that submitted the proposal loses its voting power of 2 prior to the proposal being executed, anyone can cancel the proposal. And that’s what happened here. Read more from the House of Nouns team below.
That’s all for this week! Keep proliferating and stay Gnarly ⌐◨-◨ 🤘
