This interview is a part of our on-going series, where we highlight our epoch 2 participants.

What's MetaGame?
MetaGame is building an ecosystem of DAOs & resources for building DAOs with the goal of offering an alternative career path for corporats & recovering degens, then helping legacy orgs DAOfy. We're producing educational content, organizing events & building a platform to make it as easy as possible for people to understand the bigger picture & find their way. Currently a network village, long term an alternative socioeconomic system.

Why should you vote for MetaGame in epoch 2?

For starters, Web3:

  • Is missing a cultural aspect to onboarding
  • Is a bit lost in its purpose
  • Has a lot of DAOs failing unnecessarily

As a result it seems to be more fruitful for people to be degens, hunt airdrops & chase memecoins, than build. This leads to a negative feedback loop where the degen demand generates more scams & purposeless memecoins - in turn making the Web3 industry as a whole seen as a laughing stock or as a scam.

For Web3 to succeed, we need to make building as fun & rewarding as degening - which is what we aim to do.

We see the purpose of Web3 as building the empowerment economy, where any broke or broken community can find tools to build new forms of value, financial systems, governance systems & more.

Also, we're broke ourselves 🤣

We've been doing this for 4 years- organized 5 conferences & 138 meetups, produced a load of content & built the whole platform throughout - with just over $300k in funding so far.

We are currently burning only $8k/mo, so each 3.3 eth gives us a month of runway. We estimate we need another 8 months to become a self-sustainable public good.

Cool metrics:

  • Running for 4 years w/ only ~$300k in funding.
  • Organized almost 150 community calls.
  • Organized 5 conferences totaling 300 sessions.
  • Last year, organized MetaFest Croatia & DAOcember.
  • Produced almost 100 podcast episodes.
  • Countless newsletters, 11,000 subscribers.
  • Built a whole platform including a p2p educational protocol, quests & decentralized profiles.

Progress since epoch 1:

  • Organized DAOcember, watched by >1000 people (online).
  • Started producing the DAO course w/ DAO veterans from across the space.
  • Published a few more podcasts & podcast episodes.
  • Organized 7 more community calls with guests.
  • Finished building The Academy.
  • Revamped most of the educational content (about to be uploaded to IPFS).
  • Almost finished the UX/UI revamp, preparing to relaunch the platform in February.
