CurateDAO created an Avalanche-based platform called “curate to Earn” where participants can make money by contributing to databases.
Play-to-earn gaming (P2E), which is expected to rise in 2021, has been promoted by Infinity ( ) and an offshoot called Move-to-earn. Another variation of the “to Earn” model is launched to add Web3 elements to existing Web2 frameworks.
The CurateDAO team announced to Cointelegraph that they have launched a Pinterest-like platform for data collection on the Avalanche ( AVAX ) blockchain. Users can earn crypto tokens by completing tasks, similar to other “to-earn” models. Participants are required to contribute their curated lists to project’s database.
There are many roles in the ecosystem. These include curators who will create and maintain rules for the database. A scout will search for and contribute content to the database rules. Viewers who look at the content will also be involved.
A curator could be an individual, an decentralized autonomous organisation (DAO), or an artificial intelligence program (AI) like GPT-3. As content is purchased or accessed through advertisements, they will also earn.
They believe that curation can be incentivised to increase data quality. CurateDAO founder Michael Fischer said that CurateDAO will help users acquire content using a familiar Web2 method.
Cointelegraph was told by Anthony Yoon, an executive from ROK Capital, that blockchain gaming is a great fit for the Korean gaming industry. Yoon said that some Web2 gaming companies are seeking ways to get into the blockchain. Yoon suggests two approaches: one, develop first, then launch a token later; and, the other, prioritizing the token and then launching it.
Jeffrey Zirlin, executive at Axie Infinity, told Cointelegraph that the company is working to expand their efforts in reaching the South Korean gaming community. Zirlin said that despite the ban on P2E gaming in South Korea, they are still looking at ways to adapt the game to their region.
