In the two weeks since the last DAO Committee report, seven points of interest were added to the Decentraland map, multiple polls were passed focusing on improving in-world user experience, and three grants were approved and funded.

Over the coming weeks, the DAO will release a strategic plan aiming to increase governance engagement and will be hosting the first town hall on Thursday November 11, 2021, led by Matimio, the recently hired DAO Facilitator. All community members are invited to participate in this general interest session, which will also be attended by at least one DAO Committee member. Details on the event will be published on the Decentraland Events page in the coming days.

Polls

Representing third-party NFTs as wearables in Decentraland

  • Yes 87% 2,448,546 VP (120 votes)
  • No 13% 387,355 VP (1 vote)

The DAO has called for the implementation of a process for the submission, approval and in-world representation of third-party NFTs as wearables. When implemented, this will allow third-parties (i.e. creators of an NFT project) to “register” with Decentraland and be approved to upload 3D assets to represent their NFTs as an in-world wearable. The Decentraland Foundation has an ongoing project to implement this feature with completion estimated for the end of November.

Dressing room capability on marketplace for wearables

  • Yes, we should have a dressing room feature 99% 6,304,464 VP (120 votes)
  • No, we should not have a dressing room feature 1% 5,800 VP (1 vote)

The DAO has voted to implement a dressing room feature to enable users to “try on” wearables before purchase. For full functionality to be achieved this must be implemented in both the SDK and in the user’s Backpack interface. Ideally, this will be implemented within the Marketplace’s UI as well, but the technical feasibility of this is yet to be determined. The DAO Committee will communicate with the Foundation World Team about Backpack implementation.

  • YEAH! LET’S BUILD! 97% 241,675 VP (9 votes)
  • NO WAY, JOSE! 0% 0 VP (1 vote) Invalid question/options 3% 9,948 VP (3 votes)

The DAO has voted - with 9 affirmative votes and 241,000 voting power - to update the play.decentraland.org landing page. The repository for the landing page is open source and can be upgraded by interested parties.

Streaming inside Decentraland has too much latency. Let’s change the protocol and open new doors.

  • Let’s change the protocol 100% 125,356 VP (20 votes)
  • There is no need to change it 0% 0 VP (0 votes)

The DAO has voted to improve latency on video streams, in order to better enable live in-world events. The DAO Committee will communicate with the Foundation World Team to discuss feasibility.

Could increase and improve character interaction in the game?

  • Increase character interaction 99% 311,173 VP (19 votes)
  • Increase scene interaction 1% 3,699 VP (2 votes)

The DAO has passed a vote requesting the Foundation to increase and improve character animations and interactions in game. Updated character animations are currently under development with an estimated release in Q4 of this year. Additional information will be included in the Foundation’s forthcoming client roadmap.
