Bridgechains: Constructing a Scalable Ecosystem and Creating Value
For the third video in our animated series, CYJ will be tackling the topic of Bridgechains. More specifically, the video will focus on the importance of scalability and the manner in which Bridgechains will ultimately bring value to the ARK token, and the ARK Ecosystem in general. In addition, we will cover the new transaction types related to Bridgechains (Business Registration, and Bridgechain Registration) and their role in incentivizing the use of the ARK token.
Much like our previous projects, we will be providing incentive for community members to donate ARK toward the budget. We’ve got some brand new, exclusive artwork from our friends from The Golden Horde as well as the golden oldies from our past fundraisers.
We are extremely happy with the way the “Point. Click. Blockchain.” video turned out, but for the sake of speed and releasing a video to the community sooner, we have decided to use the same style of animation as the DPoS piece. Here’s the budget breakdown:
120 Second Animation — $4,000
Voice Over — $250
Sound Design and Mix — $250
FUNDING AND DONATIONS
We will be accepting donations and offering incentives for any generous soul who is willing to donate. If you would like to donate, or to monitor the wallet, you can do so here:
Wallet Address: AQbzA7zWNW5htDTQtsqdktKm8R5aZhSAqz
25 ARK: “Special Thanks” credits page with others who donated that amount. Simply add your name or handle to the “smartbridge” field in your transaction and you will be added to the credits of our third video.
100 ARK: Your very own dedicated credit page, great for Delegates who want to be charitable and get a bit of advertising done. Same as above, add your name to the “smartbridge.”
ARTWORK FROM THE GOLDEN HORDE
These prints are exclusively available through CYJ fundraising campaigns.
250 ARK: Your pick of one of The Golden Horde’s amazing “ARK The Movie” design series prints. You can choose either “From The Depths of Doom”, “The Chase”, or the newly unveiled “The Drums of War.” Prints are 16"x12" and come in a solid black frame.
300 ARK: Same scene, different color scheme. For 300 ARK, you will receive the Day Variant of “The Chase” or the sunset variant of “The Drums of War.” Prints are 16"x12" and come in a solid black frame.
Bundles and Large Prints
500 ARK: One large print, any color variant you like. Large prints are 36"x24" and come in a solid black frame.
500 ARK: Your choice of any two prints. Prints are 16"x12" and come in a solid black frame.
800 ARK: Your choice of any three prints. Prints are 16"x12" and come in a solid black frame.
In order to cover the cost of the prints and their shipping, $70 worth of ARK will be sent to TGH for each 16x12 print, and $130 for each 36"x24" print. The remainder will be kept as a donation in the video wallet fund.
If you wish to receive one of the art pieces above, there are some steps you need to take in order to prove the authenticity of your wallet.
- Please use one of these contact details to get in touch with Colby from TGH: @Colby (The Golden Horde) on Slack, firstname.lastname@example.org via email, u/oZanderhoff on Reddit or get in touch via the Medium article and we can relay your details to Colby. This is important as it ensures that the print gets sent to the correct person.
- Colby will supply you with a Smart Bridge code that you must include with your donation to the video fund. This is so that we make sure no one tries to spoof a donation and pose as someone they are not. Let Colby know once you’ve sent the donation through and we can verify.
- Once verified, Colby will be in touch to arrange delivery and shipping details and liaise with you on the shipping times and updates.
- Last but not least, sit back and wait for your awesome art work to arrive safe at your location!
As soon as we hit our budget of $4,500 we will move forward with production. Once that happens we will keep the community in the loop with progress reports and updates when possible. Any amount raised over the $4,500 will be kept in the wallet and put towards the next video.
As always, a big thank you to our voters for making this all possible. If you would like to see more high quality video content being produced to promote the ARK Ecosystem, vote for Cam’s Yellow Jacket as your ARK delegate.
