GameFi -> DAO, Play to earn -> DAOs to earn.

Play to earn = We are all Junior Workers.

DAOs to earn = You can be a boss, you just work for yourself.

We encourage everyone who contributes to the community(NnsDAO ecologies), the more contributions they make, the better and continuous rewards they can get.

from Dfinity




Everyone can join a trade union in their field of expertise, and gain prestige as their contribution grows. The higher the prestige, the more voting rights.


Everyone can put forward their own ideas and contribute to the community. Every new project will be sponsored by the community at every stage from the idea to the implementation. You can also join projects created by others, complete them together, and get rewards together.


The project can request the help of professionals from various functional circles to jointly complete the product.

When you need to vote, you can vote for people in a certain field, so as to avoid invalid votes as much as possible.


If needed, DAOn can split into some small DAOns.


All NDP holders decide who can maintain DAOn List


As more and more people join, the ecology will get better and better, and the rewards will also increase.

NnsDAO & Japan DAO Association

Today we are pleased to announce that NnsDAO Protocol is growing fast! As of today, the NnsDAO ecology is already composed of DAOs such as Icpscan, ICTexas, Icpdrops, Icptree, Icpodcast, Universe, and NnsDAO Funds, which will operate as different DAOs in the future, and at the same time we welcome the first DAOs to join the ecology in Today Japan DAO Association officially joined NnsDAO Protocol ecology, which will run in the form of DAOs in the future, and NnsDAO Protocol Patrick program will also start this month, we expect the new activity will meet with you on the 20th, and we believe it will be a new chapter of IC ecology. NnsDAO, as a part of ICP ecology, we have chosen different tracks to layout when building our products, such as DAOs, games, tools, NFTs, etc., and governed by DAOs and virtual reputation, thus making a collaborative approach to DAOs a possibility, which we are exploring.

About the Patrick Plan

First, the Patrick Plan is an exploration used to build products and orchestrate DAO workflows, and we currently propose to build DAOs based on the Nomos protocol for the entire NnsDAO, with ecological incentives through early participants so as to attract more users to the DAO community.

In the last week, we introduced the working model of DAOs, and in the future, it will be presented to users in the form of comics, and we have currently sought the help of the Japanese DAO community. Meanwhile, Patrick plan we expect to officially start around the 20th and explore this model by two creation planets of NnsDAO, it is also one of the important purposes of this collaboration, we let more people understand and know the collaboration process of NnsDAO through the early creation of DAOs, and we believe this is the best way to join hands to build DAOs together and explore the future by practice.

About Nomos protocol

We introduced the origin of Nomos a long time ago, it is essentially a rule to bind users within the ecology through contractual agreements and distribute rewards to users participating in the ecology while building dApps, which was our initial vision to distribute tokens in the form of DAOs and govern the whole agreement through a reputation system, and we are currently building this process and presenting it through Universe and dApp together to present it so that users can see more intuitively how to participate and how to contribute, how to achieve DAOs to earn, You can be a boss, you just work for yourself.

How to participate in Patrick Eco Plan?

If you are interested in participating in the creation of NnsDAO together, everyone who contributes is welcome to join the ecology of DAOs, eventually, we will name each planet with the idea of the person who joins and write a story of their own, and then show it to all users of the ecology through Universe.

About Japan DAO Association

JDA (Japan DAO Association) is a P2P Job-matching community, enable engineers /creators to meet directly to crypto projects all over the world. You can find many high level creators and engineers from Japan who would like to get hired.

While NnsDAO is launching the Writing DAO Guild, we are also looking for more IC ecosystem related tools and projects to work with.

1. About Papyrs

Papyrs, An open-source, privacy-first, decentralized blogging platform that lives 100% on chain. Your voice is unstoppable, your data are your own.

In the age of web3, we need to own our data and user sovereignty, and building a blog through IC is a good place to start.

2. How to use Papyrs to publish a blog

2.1 The first step is to go to papy rs , click on Write post , and go to app Papyrs


The second step is to authorize your II account and log in to set up your personal information, which will allow you to sync content across multiple devices.

sign in

By looking at it, we see that there are two sections in the function bar that can be used,


The first is the menu bar on the left, which has the following functions:

-Open and create a new article -Open an existing article -Import an article -Publish article to ic -List of articles -Assets list -Follow social media and GitHub

Secondly, there are the settings on the right hand side, with the following functions: -Settings, you can choose different languages and set personal information -Login -billing, where users can try all features for free during the beta phase

Hint: At the bottom of the settings, users can choose their favorite topics to write articles.

After logging in and authorizing, click setting, and after setting your personal information, click submit.

After setting, click submit.


Through the above guide, we understand how to write articles and set personal information, as well as understand the different functional areas, so that we can write more quickly.

As you can see in Figure 1, the first thing you need to do to write an article is to fill in the title, and then click enter to start writing your story, a version of the rich text editor can use some shortcut tools, follow the prompts to enter, "/" can see some shortcut operations:


Currently available functions are, "title size, list, images", Papyrs editing features are very powerful, it supports Unsplash gallery, gif, code snippet parsing, Excalidraw drawing tools and more.

Of course you can also use this feature by clicking on the + sign on the left, in addition to the shortcut keys.

For example, if we use the transfer function, click on the + sign and find the image property, you will see the following


Click on upload a new image, and the image will be entered directly into the editor, as follows:


Of course you can also use the free copyright free Unsplash online gallery, by using the shortcut '/', find the Unsplash option and there will be the following, add the image directly by searching online.


After writing all the content, we click on publish in the left menu bar and a popup window will appear, then we click on the button publish to publish to the IC network, when publishing you can select the SEO option to increase your content index by description and tag, and you can customize the URL.


Progress in publishing:


Posting completed:


Final article address:

3.Advantages of Papyrs

For content blogging platforms, in the past we have seen different content providers such as Google Blogger, medium, substack, etc., but none of them have solved the problem of data sovereignty and creator economy, while experiencing Papyrs I see this possibility and its perfect experience, I believe this is a real web3 blogging platform, and the data and content belongs to the users, In the future they will create a new model of content subscription.

We delighted to announce that last year on August the NnsDAO project team was officially established.  It was our pleasure that we took inspiration from Starfish's social behavior and organizational structure, and used it as a blueprint to build the NnsDAO white paper.


Literally, NnsDAO is defined as an autonomous organization without boundaries which provides development components that allow dapps to build DAOs and govern projects using modular services as well as changing the existing voting model by building a reputation system.

NnsDAO’s Core Product Logic


The NnsDAO Team is designing and implementing NnsDAO Protocol which was based on four original modules such as DAOBasic Framework, NnsDAO SDK, NID SDK and plugins.

DAOBasic Framework is a framework service so that anyone can build some simple services based on it and of course you can also implement some customized features through inheritance.   Nevertheless DAOBasic framework also provides the most basic DAO functionality like voting proposal, proposal status execution etc.  In fact in the future we will add some necessary functions of DAO.

NNSDAO SDK is a DAO service based on the DAO Basic framework which provides a wider range of functions by implementing some of the methods of DAO basic and adding function constraints to make the voting system more complete and prevent attacks. Eventually NnsDAO SDK is implemented so you can treat this module as some services on the IC which is currently the basic DAO service built by NnsDAO itself and of course we provide more versions of the SDK for other projects or users to access to build their own DAO services.

From taking users as the dimension, users can build and create DAOn and DAOs through Nomos platform and add some management system where by each DAO has its own rules, vision and goals after being established then they can communicate, publish tasks and manage members through this DAO and also can use some plug-in attributes to add more extended functions such as sponsorship mode, bounty tasks, etc.    In fact, not only NnsDAO SDK is for NnsDAO's own ecological services but also to build the DAOn world to prepare the basic functions so that users in the blockchain ecosystem are completely based on the blockchain to launch a DAO which is the real DAO.

NID SDK is the user reputation system of NnsDAO ecology and having some behavioral patterns of users in IC ecology that can be constructed through algorithms and quantified by reputation values. In the future, we will gradually add more dimensions of data and quantify the footprints of users in the IC ecology and also allow more projects to access the NID SDK and if the reputation of users is constantly improved so we can build DeFi, lending and other products based on reputation.

Plugins is a scalable component which divided into official plugins and community plugins so users or projects can choose the plugins they want to install when building DAO for customization management at the same time we will give a set of plug-in standards so that community developers can build and develop according to their own needs. In fact, this is a programmable DAO and NFT and of course in the future it can be charged through the plug-in model for developers.   However, in the future not only it can be charged through the plug-in model for developers to obtain revenue but also in the incentive for more developers to create more plug-ins so that you can understand this kind of an open application plug-in market.

Nomos platform is based on the above services to create a UI product model for ordinary users so that can directly the platform to operate, build DAO, exchange, manage tasks, update DAO contracts which is a low-code collaboration platform.

Ultimately, we hope to build some DAO basic services and extensions, so that the IC ecological DAO can have more flexibility, and through the community of developers to increase more possibilities, I believe that the wisdom of the group not only can create more suitable for DAO services but also to explore the DAO singularity.

Layout and development of eco-applications

Through the layout of the product, we are exploring more DAO possibilities so currently we are involved in a number of areas and finally our ultimate goal is to build an ecosystem that can make the reputation system to get more perfect like an artificial intelligence algorithm.   In fact the more perfect data can get better models so we are currently exploring tools, social, games, infrastructure, NFT, investment through different areas we hope to try out a new type of DAO collaboration model and attract community users to join our construction through a combined and programmable model so that DAOs can be better developed.

Group intelligence is a better solution to build Web3 and DAOs however everyone has their own different point of view so NnsDAO connects more people through IC and eventually through reputation-based DAOs for governance and development protocols then we give IC more sustainability and scalability.


In the first year of NnsDAO's existence, icpscan is our first attempt product as a blockchain browser that could observe the active state of the community by address and also provide some basic tools for development. However at the beginning we wanted to calculate some address activity and transaction of the giant whale through data offline eventually we made it a simple product that could view some transactions and data in the future also give access tokens in the IC ecosystem such as NDP transaction records, NDP daily activity data, etc.

We hope that through an observable data in real time to reflect the IC ecological trends and development progress so both users and investors are very concerned about the current progress of IC then for some data indicators is necessary for more people to serve.

Texas Hold’em and DLottery game ecosystem

After icpscan, we validated Texas POC through Texas poker we gained development experience and experience in front and back end interface debugging and in terms of results we got positive feedback.     Literally, IC is suitable for some card games that do not require high latency then at the invitation of Dfinity we tried Dlottery through IC's random numbers to create a completely based on and it is a new attempt because ETH has some true and false random number problems so it cannot be risk-averse for some forged verification however it cannot be made like Texas Hold'em, lottery and other gaming games. Of course we are also exploring more possibilities and currently building a mini-game based on NFTs.   In fact, we will make a starfish-based PVP game so that NFTs can have more properties.

ICMarket and Starfish NFT

In the NFT field, we have explored the NFT market and created our own NFT brand Starfish which currently has a wide user base and enthusiasts with a total transaction amount of over 5000 icp and 3628 Starfish holders.      At the same time, we are expanding the brand influence of NnsDAO through a community culture, we hope to build a DAO-based NFT market, we have launched the ICmarket based on the subDAO concept, so far more than 20 projects have been launched, and the blind box function has been launched, and we will launch a series of features that can lower the purchase threshold of NFT in the future In the future, we will launch a series of features that can lower the purchase threshold of NFT.


It is our pleasure and gratitude to see NnsDAO, ICPSCAN, Texas Hold'em, Dlottery, and ICmarket have all received official funding from DFinity which is a huge boost to us.

ICPodcast SaaS

ICPodcast is a podcast platform built entirely on IC that is led by our newest partner kkdemian. It is a comprehensive platform for hosting and distribution where by podcast creators can completely own their own data and an attempt by Web3 to explore the field of audio NFT. Imagine that each podcast creator could own their own data and build an NFT with each of their episodes and users could listen to them through a collection model, a subscription exploration and a new model to increase revenue for creators.     Of course about the decentralization Podcasts Protocol & Ep NFT are for Creators.

Nevertheless, through a join or leave model, we are experimenting with new possibilities for users or community members to join the NnsDAO ecosystem and lead the development of the product from a catalytic figure, and each independent product has its own autonomy, and the DAO is just a tool, at this time the NnsDAO carries the attribute of connection so we hope that in the future to have more products and independent developers can join the NnsDAO ecology and finally we will have flat organization so each member of the organization is equal.

In terms of community, we hope to help some new DAOs to get some help in the future through NDP and sponsorship model. At the beginning of each DAO, they have their own vision, plan, values, and if they want to set up a project they need their own roadmap and task management, progress management, etc.      So based on this model we add a sponsorship plugin for the community then they can choose to open this function at the right time that allowing more users and people interested in their project to contribute, and also for the project this is a kind of recognition not only for contribution but also an incentive which I believe this will be a good side of the community sponsorship initiative.

For the above product exploration, NnsDAO in the future will provide a series of DAO and reputation of the basic services so that more users not only can quickly integrate into the IC ecology but also to reduce some operational threshold and the difficulty of using the product.  The user or project does not need to create a DAO but only need to use notion to manage the project as well as discord for community management with collaboration and permission management, Snapshot for proposal management, Gnosis Multisig for vault management and other tools to build a DAO so NnsDAO wants all these to be integrated in nomos platform without the need of using third-party tools.     In fact we can directly launch a DAO and then a DAO built entirely on the blockchain and its ownership belongs to the people in the community.

However, we set up many stages for the users who create DAOs and then if a DAO is developed well enough so it will be supported through the moon landing program and the subDAO can issue its own token to manage and maintain the current community which means a separable subDAO is being practiced.     Of course the subDAO can also become DAOs because NnsDAO itself is also a subDAO.    Actually in the world of DAOs, we are all governed by flat rules as well as we are all bound by rules so that the DAO will be more sustainable and more dynamic and fair.     Whether it is the Magna Carta or the U.S. Constitution so they are constraints, rules, and in the world of DAO such rules have not yet been established so we are trying and exploring.

Some results about NDP

NDP is acting as a pass of NnsDAO ecology that realizes the internal operation and extensible expansion function under NnsDAO ecology through circulation incentive, holding vote and investment dividend.   At this stage, NDP has a wide range of application scenarios, mainly divided into the use scenarios of NnsDAO ecological project participants and project creators created under the NnsDAO ecology.      As long as a project participant holds an NDP, he or she can freely travel between various projects in the NnsDAO ecology. The NDP is the hard currency of the entire ecology, and can be freely exchanged for any project tokens of the NnsDAO ecology to purchase any goods and NFT props of each project.    In addition, the NDP also has the function of voting and dividends.         From large issues of the NnsDAO ecosystem (destruction, increase in issuance, etc.) to the creation of a DAAO, user voting is required. Participants who vote using the NDP will receive an additional bonus after each vote.

One of the biggest plans in the NnsDAO ecosystem is the NnsDAO FUND which is similar to the concept of a mother fund in traditional finance, and a large percentage of NnsDAO's token allocation is used to support projects in the NnsDAO ecosystem to achieve the "Moon Landing Plan". In this way, they will receive dividends from their investments.

NDP is now live with ICPswap trading and open for liquidity mining, and the DIP20 protocol contract conversion seems to be a wise choice for now. Next we will add new dex partners and in due course NDP will go live on a centralized exchange to make it easier for users to trade NDP.

We have received a lot of support from our partners during the year, and we will increase our marketing and business cooperation efforts in the coming year.       Finally, to celebrate the first anniversary of NnsDAO, we will launch a series of events and provide various rewards for our supporters, welcome to participate

Thank you all for your support!

DAO is a distributed autonomous organization, and the most important feature of DAO is to realize the normal operation and outreach of the entire organization through decentralization. In this process, the pass plays a linking and catalytic role, using the pass to link various sub-projects, while using its incentive effect to catalyze the external expansion of the project. It attracts more individuals and organizations to enter the ecology and realize the ecology without borders.

What is NnsDAO?

NnsDAO is a borderless organization, which builds a virtual reputation system belonging to the Web 3.0 era based on Dfinity, and builds and improves the ecology through different DAOs (specific projects). Different users explore and find their own value by joining different DAOn (unions) and DAOs (specific projects) to make collaboration and creation easier.

What is NDP?

NDP is a pass for NnsDAO ecology, which realizes the internal operation and external expansion functions under NnsDAO ecology through circulation incentive, holding vote, and investment dividends.

Circulation incentive function:**

The application scenario of NDP is very wide, mainly divided into the use scenario of NnsDAO ecological project participants and project creators created under the NnsDAO ecology.

As long as a project participant holds NDP, he or she can freely travel between various projects of NnsDAO ecology. NDP is the hard currency of the whole ecology and can be freely exchanged for any project tokens of NnsDAO ecology to buy any goods and NFT props of each project.

And as a project creator in the NnsDAO ecology, he can use NDP to purchase services of the ecology. For example, he can get a higher user cap by spending NDP to accelerate the project server; get huge traffic support by spending NDP to use ICPDROP for NnsDAO-wide ecological airdrop; get greater project exposure through NDP bidding advertisement and other services.

All of the above processes will consume a large amount of NDP, which will lead to an orderly long-term shrinkage of the total amount of NDP, and then the market supply and demand of economics will raise the price of NDP to a new dynamic equilibrium point.

Holds the voting function

User voting is required for everything from large NnsDAO ecological issues (destruction, additions, etc.) to the creation of a DAOn. Voting participants using NDP will receive additional rewards after each vote.

However, it is worth noting that the voting weight is determined by the reputation value and the NDP holding is not used as the only reference criterion. This eliminates the embarrassing oligarchic effect of large coin holdings from the voting process.

This also makes "You can be a boss, you just work for yourself, DAOs to earn." a reality.

Investment Dividend Function

One of the biggest plans in NnsDAO ecology is NnsDAO FUND, which is similar to the concept of the mother fund in traditional finance. A large percentage of NnsDAO's token distribution is used to support projects in NnsDAO ecology to achieve the "moon landing plan".

In return, the supported projects will pay dividends to NDP holders, which means that as long as you hold NDP, you will receive dividends from NnsDAO FUND investment; if you actively participate in the ecological voting, you can get the reputation value continuously accumulated.

You know, high reputation value will get more ecological rewards in NnsDAO ecology. At present, NnsDAO has proposed the concept of OG (meta), and OG will get additional rewards in various activities of the ecology.

In addition to the OG and ecological contributions that can accumulate personal reputation, NnsDAO also encourages everyone to create DAOs and carry out the layout of projects or ecology in the early stage of creation. Early users will be rewarded with ecological contributions, and 7% of the total contributions will support eligible projects at the beginning of the program implementation, and gradually start the community shared governance.

nnsdao nomos

How to better understand NnsDAO, what is its vision and ecology?

Throughout the history of blockchain development is a human history of continuous decentralization, starting from the birth of bitcoin in 2008, people have decentralized currency, to the emergence of ethereum in 2014 decentralized finance began to explode, and then to the back of the decentralization of the idea deep in people's hearts, people began to explore more areas to decentralize, and not only on the business level, even governance The emergence of DAO has shown people that a bottom-up management approach is possible. The emergence of public chains such as ICP has even completed the last step of this revolution: server decentralization. As a result, in the near future, a blockchain project will feature no principals, no office addresses, and even servers that are distributed across data centers around the world. Theoretically no one will ever be able to shut down the project again.

The project we are going to introduce today: NnsDAO, is a DAO-based WEB3 platform deployed on the ICP ecosystem chain.

DAO has become the representative of advanced governance model. Many DEFI and VENTURE projects introduce DAO governance by letting the community vote on the direction of the project, but the weight of the vote is calculated according to the number of tokens held. Such an approach brings two disadvantages.

  1. there will be the possibility that large users with more cryptocurrency holdings will completely control the development of the project, making the so-called democracy much less effective.

  2. Many users who hold coins are not sensitive to voting and do not care about the development of the project, but simply buy the coins and put them away, but never vote when voting, for such projects many DAO organizations will face the embarrassing situation that those who hold coins do not work and those who work do not have many coins. As a result, many motions are forced to be shelved because there are not enough votes to implement them.

For this result, DAO organizations are constantly evolving to solve this problem. Some DAOs have started to adopt the form of BLOCK voting: as long as one person votes for a proposal and no one votes against the proposal, the proposal can be passed, and if two people vote one for and one against, the proposal cannot be passed.

NnsDAO takes a different approach to build a virtual reputation system to solve the above problem. In the NnsDAO ecosystem, all users in the ICP ecosystem are encouraged to create a union (DAON) and a sub-DAO (DAOS) of a project on ICP. The more users contribute to a project or union, the more they are rewarded with NnsDAO's eco-currency, NDP, and an additional virtual reputation, NFT, which cannot be traded. Through this dual token system, we will see what kind of changes will be brought to the DAO governance model.

Imagine a scenario where a user is very active in Project A under the NnsDAO ecosystem and has made a lot of contributions to Project A. Everyone in the Project A community knows him and he has a lot of tokens and voting rights in Project A. But no one in the Project B community knows him. But no one in the Project B community knows this guy, and he doesn't have many votes or tokens in Project B. If he wants to build up his influence in Project B, he either needs to start from scratch or buy a lot of Project B tokens, but the emergence of the virtual reputation system can change this process. As a result of good performance in project A, the user will accumulate his reputation and get a virtual reputation NFT, which allows the user to have enough voice and voting weight in any project under the NnsDAO ecosystem. In this way, the real contributors of the community can continue to promote the progress of the project and the weight of the vote is no longer the number of TOKENs held by a single project.

NnsDAO has already cooperated with JDADAO, a Japanese developer organization, and JDADAO has announced that it will join the NnsDAO ecosystem to help developers who wish to develop on the ICP chain in the future. Many projects on the ICP chain will introduce the DAO governance model in the future, and as the first DAO protocol on the ICP ecosystem, NnsDAO ecosystem does not only position itself as a project, but also as a protocol that can accommodate various DAO organizations on the ICP chain. Judging from the layout of NnsDAO's ecological segment now, they are also working towards this goal. Currently, NnsDAO has ICPSCAN, ICPDROPS, ICPTREE, Universe, and ICPODCAS under its ecology. Users can play in NnsDAO, participate in the governance of the ecological projects, check various data on ICP ecology, as well as hold NDP can also receive airdrops of each project. People can also work and socialize by setting up DAON on it so as to truly realize social2earn.

With the development of blockchain, the techno-punks have finally established a decentralized kingdom. the revolution brought by WEB3 will undoubtedly be very far-reaching, and the emergence and development of DAO organizations will be the key to this revolution. countless DAO organizations may appear in the future to replace the corporate system for people to work and socialize. There may also be a situation where oligopolistic companies and DAO organizations co-exist, and no matter which outcome, joining a DAO organization is the most important thing you should do now.
