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
As mentioned over the past month or so, protocol upgrades are continuing to be pushed out as they are completed. Last week we saw an update to the frontend for the website at gnars.wtf along with the ability to claim two v2 Gnars per OG Gnar. This week, we have a beginning for auction extensions and a bittersweet end to auction sniping. As many of you already know not having auction extensions led to users competing to get their bids in at the last second, which we called sniping, and led to some great times in the auctions channel. With the introduction of auction extensions, this will no longer be the case, as when a higher bid is received in the final seconds of an auction it will automatically extend the duration of the auction.
That’s Gnarly Contests
A new feature is being tested this week on That’s Gnarly, contests! Athletes can submit clips in the category of their sport for a chance to win up to $250 in prizes. Submissions will be voted on by Gnars and That’s Gnarly editions holders. In addition, you can refer your friends and each referral gains you an extra entry to the contest. Read the twitter thread below for more details.
In the next few weeks the gnarving will be here! For those that don’t know, the gnarving is when the duration of each auction doubles - think of it like a 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 only 74 auctions left. 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!

This proposal is seeking 1 Gnar NFT to begin the athlete onboarding process for Bernardo Nassar, a big wave bodyboarder located in Brazil. He is also part of the NXF team, who as mentioned in the previous proposal discovered and are pioneers of “Avalanche”, one of the largest waves in Brazil.
