The project "IDGO: A Local Passport and Gift Card System on the Arbitrum Network" aims to boost local economies and tourism using Arbitrum's Layer 2 solution, by developing tools for creating local DAOs and digital passports/gift cards backed by staked ARB tokens. Despite potential challenges like acceptance, liquidity, and security, the project has received positive community feedback and aligns with the blockchain industry's vision of community autonomy and economic inclusion.

What is this about?

The discussion revolves around a project proposal by Blair titled "IDGO: A Local Passport and Gift Card System on the Arbitrum Network"1. The project aims to stimulate local economies and enhance tourism by leveraging the capabilities of the Arbitrum Layer 2 solution. The proposal involves developing a suite of user-friendly tools for establishing local DAOs and creating digitally-backed passports and gift cards, underpinned by staked ARB tokens1. The project is led by Jacob Lee, with core team members Brady Liu and Little Daemon, and is supported by DTCO and TRPMA1.

How is the community reacting?

The community has shown a positive reaction to the proposal. Nice-place envisioned a scenario where a local business provides a digital passport supported by staked ARB tokens, enabling community members to enjoy exclusive benefits and rewards2. Jongjoo and Elisa expressed their appreciation for the proposal4,5. Blair responded to Nice-place, stating that the digital passport/gift card, backed by staked ARB tokens, is a real-world application of blockchain technology3.

Why this is positive?

The project aligns with the wider vision of the blockchain industry by establishing community autonomy and fostering economic inclusion. It allows local communities to have their own self-governance, develop local economies, and enable tourists or patrons to participate actively, creating a truly global community that appreciates diversity1. The successful implementation and adoption of IDGO could act as a real-world case study of the effectiveness of Layer 2 solutions, promoting the scalability and versatility of Arbitrum within the blockchain sector1.

Why this is negative?

The team acknowledges several market problems, including acceptance and adoption of the community currency, liquidity, trust and security, and the costs and resources involved in launching a community currency1. However, they propose solutions such as the Township Passport and a Gift card System to address these issues1.
