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
Bob Burnquist’s First Drop on That’s Gnarly
We’ve officially got the first drop on That’s Gnarly from the legendary Bob Burnquist. Having someone this influential participating in the platform so early on is truly amazing to see. Go mint it while you still can! A portion of the mint proceeds will be donated to his organization Instituto Skate Cuida. Also, head over to Twitter to listen to the recording of the Gnars Jam Session where Bob was a guest and dropped his edition live on air!
Today is the second day of the Gnars ETH Devner event! The event had a great turnout on the first day, some highlights can be found below. If you didn’t make it out yesterday be sure to stop by today! The event details can be found in the poster below, but if you have any questions feel free to reach out to Pin Pusher or Vlad.
Gnarving Coming Soon
Once again, your weekly reminder that the gnarving is sneaking up on us and will be here in no time! The gnarving is when the duration of each auction doubles, think of it like e Bitcoin halving but for Gnars auctions, and this time the auction duration is going to increase from 40 to 80 minutes. At the time of this writing, there are 138 auctions left. And don’t forget, the next gnarving will also mark the beginning of auction extensions and the end of sniping! Interested in learning more about how our auctions work? Head over to onboard.wtf.
We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!
Onboarding Carlos Bellumat (Big wave bodyboarder)
This proposal is seeking 1 Gnar NFT to begin the athlete onboarding process for Carlos Bellumat, a big wave bodyboarder located in Brazil.
