The Active Energy
It is a Sci-Fi co-created and co-owned by many authors, in our case, the BabelDAO members. A good example of a collaborative fiction project is SCP.
Because our original story(Babel) is about a collective intelligence, we believe it should also be created by a collective intelligence(BabelDAO). In this way, the story stays true to its spirit and gains a more vibrant life than a single author can give to it.
The collaborative fiction projects before Web3 can achieve co-creation and some level of co-governance but not co-ownership of the IP (Intellectual property). We achieve co-ownership to compensate all creators by using the DAO structure, governance NFTs, and ERC-20 tokens.
We have guilds ranging from Writing to Visual art to PR & Finance. You can join any guild according to your interest and skills. Your guild will help you find your way into the project.
We'll issue our native ERC-20 token after the initial community building. A part of that will be airdropped to Tree badge holders at that time. The token will go onto exchanges once the Babel Universe IP (Intellectual Property) gains public recognition (i.e. when the debut project is distributed on one of the major streaming networks).
There will be three ways to get compensated once the debut project begins - Bounty, Grant, and Salary. Guilds will list out bounties that come with compensation for members to claim. On the other hand, you can apply for grants if you want to initiate a project. As for the constant contributors (i.e. Mods), a salary will be paid. Compensations can be in the form of USD, our native token, or a mixture of both.
Server31 is the virtual planet found "heaven" in the original Babel short story.
