I got sponsored by a Gnars DAO !!!
DAOS are Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, basically the blockchain power reinventing how to work and organize people with similar goals throught its community in a horizontal structure. If its the first time you hear about DAOS read here.
In Daos, everything happens through proposals made and voted by the community. Recently I got involved in NOUNS NFT project, and there I got to know Gnars Dao a Nouns subDao created by Noun 189 that is focused in support extreme athletes and its culture, very similar with our stoken mindset.
I found that perfect, and I believe once Skatehive has its DAO structure ready we will be able to do lots of things together between our communities, the 2 groups have the same goals and both SKATEHIVE and GNARS are doing great jobs on bringing web3 solutions to extreme sports/art world and vice-versa.
Gnars Daos is sponsoring guys like Dave Bachisky, sending ETH to Uganda Skateboarding Society, supporting artist which is amazing.
I didn`t lose much time, I knew that as a Skater and a Web3 builder I got a shot making a proposal there, but not just to get sponsored and shit, but also to set and example to all my friends that are getting closer to web3 but still beginning to understand what we do.
The prososal got approved with 5x the quorum needed and of course I am so Stoked !
Bob Burnquist, another Skatehive council member is also making a proposal in Nouns through Gnars

Web3 Events that I go
Autor: Vlad Nikolaev
I can code a little bit
In 2018 I met Knowhow, webgnar and Daryl we all had a small communities of skateboarders and we merged those into one skatehive. What we call the house of the skateboarder on web3. Through Skatehive we were able to support independent skateboard movements, promote online contests and build and app that monetizes in crypto skateboarding content.
About Coletivo XV
I am one of the board directors of ColetivoXV, a skateboarding collective that played a important role in legalizing skateboarding in Rio de Janeiro. I am very proud of what we achieved and there was where I learned about community power before web3.
This proposal is about a continuous sponsorship of 0.5 ETH/month during 6 months, where I would be producing awesome gnarly nounish content like that
I also can handle producing merch and attend to events reforcing the current presence gnars is building on events.
