Shots Fired #56
MCON2 labor edition, pre merge
we’re back babies, ready to go back 2 school in Colorful Colorado for the annual gathering of DAOists - MCON2, one for the purists. 🧿
At this very moment, hundreds of folks around the globe are in transit to share space, attention, and time in the classroom of DAO life, and perhaps find some alignment on this future we’re collectively building. 🏗️
Some they say
They'd rather have friends than money 🤑
Constant waves 🌊
And moments of time dissolving..
Before you proceed, a few safety tips for Denver in case you weren’t aware -
It’s gonna be t o a s t y out there! Stay HYDRATED - this means beber aqua even when you’re not thirsty, carry a bottle around, and wear sunscreen! 🌞 Melanoma is no joke.
Here’s a map of the immediate vicinity around Evans School - most activities will be walking/biking 🚴 /scootering distance so no real need for a vehicle during the week.
We’re already stacked with content and side events, if you’re looking for a cool break from it all, go check out some museums in the vicinity. Highly recommend Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still, and Kirkland as an easy way to get away for an hour or so. 🐺Meow Wolf is great to explore with a group of new friends!
There are efforts to coordinate mountain excursions starting the weekend, so be nice to the locals and have fun out there! 🌄
Friday night is the official MCON closing party, hosted by RaidGuild ⚔️ x 🤖 MetaFactory - thanks to our sponsors MetaCartel 🌶️, Zypsy, MIDAO , and Decentraland - come through and choose your own adventure to officially close out the amazing week. Gatekeep + your MCON2 bracelet will serve as admission into Mirus and perhaps you’ll find your way down into RaveGuild or ascend into the MetaLounge… ☄️
Shoutout to YULTEK who designed these amazing flyers, keep an eye out for his live painting throughout the week. 🎨

"We are pretty transparent about where we are going - going to be exiting to community, going to be a DAO.
Just lately we have started sharing our numbers: 6 million wallets connected, over 41k active communities on Discord alone. In the next few months, we are opening up our API - looking for partners and projects that want to build with us to support our community of communities.
New chains, new wallets - that's always happening...
Message is key - collaboration first, community first, abundance mindset 🙏🏽”
