We, the members of the community openly represented by the Octopus Guild, would like to propose the establishment of a community public appchain on the Octopus Network called Ottochain.
This community chain will serve as a sample of what a standard SubstrateEVM appchain is like, showcasing the power and capabilities of the Octopus Network to the world. It will also provide individuals, companies, and developers with an opportunity to test and explore the functionalities of an appchain and easily deploy decentralized applications (DApps) within the ecosystem.
Ottochain will have a dedicated Governance system where token holders can participate in decision-making processes. This will ensure a decentralized and inclusive approach to managing the community chain. The founding council members, as listed in the proposal, will form the core team responsible for overseeing the governance process and ensuring its smooth operation. They will work closely with the Octopus Network team to align the community chain with the broader ecosystem’s goals.
The proposed tokenomics of the community chain are designed to incentivize participation, support ecosystem growth, and reward community members for their contributions. The token distribution plan outlined in the proposal ensures a fair and balanced allocation across various stakeholders. It includes provisions for community airdrops, marketing campaigns, ecosystem growth, core team members, liquidity mining, staking rewards, and more. The vesting periods for different token allocations promote long-term commitment and stability within the ecosystem.
Utility and Applications:
Ottochain native token $OTTO will serve as the utility token within the ecosystem, enabling various functionalities.
- These include paying for transaction fees
- Rewarding delegates and validators,
- facilitating governance and voting processes,
- Incentivizing participation and contributions,
- Enabling value exchange within DApps.
The token can also be integrated with NFT platforms, allowing for the creation, trading, and ownership of unique digital assets.
More utility will be added as deem fit by the community.
We have proposed several DApps that can be built on the community chain, including a decentralized exchange (DEX), a crypto wallet with advanced features, educational platforms, a decentralized dating app, gambling games, crowdfunding and launchpad solutions, decentralized identity tools, spend-to-earn applications, fitness and wellness apps, and traffic information sharing platforms. These DApps will showcase the versatility and potential of the Octopus Network appchain.
Benefits of Supporting the Community Chain:
By supporting the establishment and development of the community chain, Octopus Network can achieve the following benefits:
1)Enhanced Visibility: The community chain will serve as a live demonstration of Octopus Network’s capabilities, attracting attention and interest from developers, entrepreneurs, and blockchain enthusiasts.
2) Ecosystem Expansion: The community chain will foster the growth of the Octopus Network ecosystem by encouraging developers to build and deploy DApps, attracting users to the appchain, and increasing the overall activity within the network.
3) Real-World Testing: The community chain will provide a real-world testing ground for the Octopus Network technology, allowing for valuable insights, bug fixes, and improvements to be made before wider adoption.
4) Community Engagement: Supporting the community chain will foster a stronger sense of community ownership and engagement within the Octopus Network ecosystem, encouraging active participation and collaboration among stakeholders.
The establishment of a community public appchain on the Octopus Network will serve as a powerful demonstration of the platform’s capabilities and provide a valuable testing ground for developers and entrepreneurs. By supporting the community chain, Octopus Network can leverage its potential for ecosystem growth, enhance its visibility, and foster a strong and engaged community. We request the Octopus Network DAO to consider supporting the community chain and collaborate with us to make this initiative a success.
Note: This proposal serves as a starting point, and further discussions and refinements are welcome to ensure the community chain aligns with the goals and vision of the Octopus Network.
