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
Gnars shredding into 2023, together
Gami has outlined some goals and ambitions he has for the DAO for 2023 and it’s safe to say that he’s hit the nail on the head as always. We have a handful of key items to continue working on and new projects to start moving into 2023. Check out the complete thoughts he shared here.
The thatsgnar.ly platform is undergoing continuous work by the collective team along with Gnars. The platform is in its early stages but is already showing great promise. There are a lot of details to work out but we are confident that it will be the perfect first implementation of the Revolution protocol.
We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!

This proposal comes from web-gnar, one of the founders of SkateHive. They have created a game that gets about 100 plays per day and is featured on GX Games homepage, called Quest for Stoken. This proposal requests to cover the costs to port the game for web and iOS platforms to expand its reach and incorporate Gnars characters, in-game POAPs, and more prizes down the road.
Sponsor Bennie Osnow, Dakota Connole, and Sam Gnoza
Sponsor Mari Nioac (Surging, paragliding, skiing)
Mari (@marinioac) is a nounish creator and athlete who has worked with the Lil Sisters Fund from Lil Nouns, Gnars with her work with TPM, and NounsBR. She is a surfer, paraglider, and skier, and has created 3D printable noggles. I suggest you read her proposal and allow her to explain her background as I won’t be able to do her justice in this paragraph!
