Event gathering DAO - ticketing NFT 721 solution?

For-profit? Non-profit? DAO-profit!

Any profit from the event will be sent to the Convergence DAO on Aragon for blockchain-based participatory budgeting.

£1 of value added to Totnes Convergence (via purchase or labour) entitles you to 1 CVG (Convergence Token)/1 vote. For example:

  • If you buy a £150 ticket, you are entitled to 150 CVG
  • If you do £1000 worth of work to make Totnes Convergence happen, you’re entitled to 1000 CVG

Is there a simple ticketing solution based on Aragon?

HMMM… Do you think it could be a valid use case?


Example from docs: https://docs.ethhub.io/built-on-ethereum/erc-token-standards/erc721/

NFTs are the digital manifestation of items like movie tickets, in that they can contain information in addition to just the owner, lending them all sorts of uses and unforeseen value.

Selling tickets directly on Aragon so that the funds land directly in the DAO?

Or maybe initially a separate smart contract for selling NFT that is benefiting the organizer?

(no DAO during the organization of the event as voting can be time-consuming)

Posting here because if there is already an Aragon app for that, that would be nice :slight_smile:

So you’re saying that it would be great if it were just as easy to mint NFTs in Aragon DAOs as it was to mint ERC-20s?

Yeah, something like that.

Aragon DAO adding an app allowing to mint NFT tokens (representing tickets in this example).

Is the Nest program ongoing?


Literally yesterday a series of commits: https://github.com/aragon/nest/commits/master


Concrete, specific, real-life, actionable use case.

Participatory event (300 people)
People buying a ticket.

  1. Go to finance app and send164 DAI in two transactions (need to approve first)
  2. DAO can vote on issuing a token (fungible ERC20)
  3. No guarantees of DAO initiating the vote, no guarantee of vote passing, no guarantee of returning the funds if rejected

Better flow:

  1. Send 164 DAI
  2. Receive NFT representing the ticket and share in the DAO

Similar to Moloch “pledge to join”. Example ArbitrageDAO: https://daohaus.club/dao/0xa8fc468da0417f71393523393bd7d57450143a62


This proposal can be split into two separate ones:

  1. Pledge to join
  2. NFT ticketing solution
  3. Any combination of these two

But the most important question - is the program open, shall I invest some effort to design a spec?

The Nest program is only open to submissions related to open requests for proposals. Otherwise, if you want to discuss this idea more, I’d recommend starting a thread in the #community:nest category (or moving this thread over there).

At the moment, however, it looks like your idea is to allow DAOs to mint NFTs, and then allowing those NFTs to trade and/or be sold by the DAO? Is that correct? If so, a few questions:

  • Why not just use ERC-20s and say that a certain amount of tokens (ex: 1) is required to attend the event? If you wanted to do that, you could use Aragon Fundraising and set the curve to be flat. Then anyone could purchase tokens from the org and all the tokens would be the same price. Would that work?

Very interesting, thanks for your input. That’s why I’ve asked question on the forum first :slight_smile:

I still think that minting NFT is practical / handy / useful.

Just like kudos on Gitcoin, or Accredited Investor NFT https://twitter.com/lex_DAO/status/1220143038405775361

Was just writing a response about NFTs while you wrote your response lol

Regarding NFTs, there’s an open proposal for memberships and subscriptions that has NFTs. For an event you might be able to set the membership/subscription terms so that the duration of a single subscription is 10000 years or something. Then people just pay once, get an NFT, and they can use that NFT to verify entrance to the event. Every event would have a new NFT, and the NFT would only be good for that event. Would that also work?

This is a very interesting idea! Would require a trusted KYC provider to mint and manage the NFTs. They would then have to integrate with platforms to make sure that the platform recognizes that NFT vs others (lots of sales and marketing required). If someone did this, however, it could potentially open up a lot of doors.

I was thinking about multiple use cases of NFT tokens.

DAO of artists selling a limited run of some wicked art or crypto collectibles.

(just to add another example why selling stuff might be useful)

Also asked here: https://aragon.chat/channel/general?msg=8A6TrsipXxFHKt2wE

I have DAO with 1000 shares.

I would like to offer 100 shares to sale on the open market at 100 DAI each.

I wrote some code some time ago - https://genesis.re/trustless-token-transfer-trade/ - send tokens to contract, set price in ETH, with some modifications can use DAI.

I’m wondering if I can sell shares directly from the Aragon DAO UI?

I know anyone can go to finance and send me some money, I know I can start with fundraising template, I just don’t know how to sell shares to raise extra funds?

It seems that AragonNFT app (developed by DappNode team) allows organizations to mint and burn NFTs. According to Apiary there are currently 3 organizations that are using this app.

Thank you for the suggestion.

The app mining programme incentivises me to develop something on my own!

Arrived here because I have another (or maybe pretty much the same) real-life use case.

Buying the island: https://islanddao.org/

For the reconnaissance tour, I’d like to sell some tickets for the people who are willing to join.

Effectively, pretty much the same use case, event (the tour) organized by DAO and selling tickets…

Aragon app mining, coming at you!
