Explore is a community-curated & governed Web3 discovery platform. As the name suggests, it is where your Web3 exploration starts. It is curated & governed by the community of Hunters (Proposers) & Voters through governance.
How does the ‘Explore’ platform work?
Hunters find out new projects & do research to propose them on the Curation dashboard; then voters validate the information provided & vote on the proposals. Hunters & Voters need to hold tokens ($DAI, $UNI, $NFTX, $SAND, $ENS & $DG) to be able to participate in the governance. Basis votes top 5 voted projects are listed on the platform every week. Governance makes the platform hard to manipulate and builds trust in the community & new users.
Anyone from the community can hunt a Dapp by submitting a proposal here. The details submitted here will be uploaded to IPFS. Then, at the end of every week, the hunted Dapps will move on to the voting stage.
The community can vote on the Dapps hunted in the previous week to get them listed on the platform. User signs a message verifying the data submitted in the proposal. This signature is also uploaded to the IPFS.
Once the voting stage is closed, the top 5 voted Dapps get listed on the platform. (thedapplist.com). The community can now discover dapps, learn and engage with them.
If the community finds a Dapp listed with incorrect information or the project is not safe for the users. In this case, they can raise a counter-proposal to delist the Dapp. This proposal will also go through the voting stage.
❇️ This process ensures that the Web3 projects listed on Explore are reliable & community validated.
