The Arbitrum community is planning to create a Strategic Treasury Incentive Program (STIP) for gaming to expand beyond DeFi, with positive feedback and active participation from members like TreasureDAO. The initiative aims to attract new users and compete with Polygon in blockchain gaming, with a working group meeting and discussions on funding and incentives in the pipeline.

What is this about?

The discussion revolves around the creation of a Strategic Treasury Incentive Program (STIP) specifically tailored for gaming within the Arbitrum ecosystem. The current STIP is predominantly focused on DeFi, leaving gaming protocols largely unsupported. Community members, including those from TreasureDAO and other gaming protocols, are showing interest in brainstorming and establishing a gaming-focused incentive program. The conversation includes planning for an initial working group meeting, coordination with the ratification of Treasure’s Arbitrum Representative Council (ARC), and the allocation of funds from AIP-3 via Questbook that have not yet been distributed.

How is the community reacting?

The community reaction is positive, with various members expressing support and willingness to contribute to the initiative. Soby1 initiated the conversation, and others like Tnorm2, Bflynn3, Flook6, Karelvuong4, Dk35, SavvyDAO7, and Djinn8 have shown interest in participating in the working group and have provided insights on how to move forward. There is a consensus on the need for a dedicated gaming incentives program and a recognition of the potential to position Arbitrum as a strong competitor to Polygon in the blockchain gaming space.

Why this is positive?

  • It could diversify the Arbitrum ecosystem beyond DeFi and attract new users and developers.
  • A dedicated STIP for games could challenge the perception of Polygon being the primary blockchain for gaming.
  • The initiative has garnered support from various community members and protocols, indicating strong collaborative potential.
  • The establishment of a working group and the involvement of the Arbitrum Representative Council (ARC) suggest a structured approach to implementing the program.

Why this is negative?

We have not been able to determine whether this will be negative.

Next actions

  • The first working group meeting is proposed to be scheduled for the first week of November.
  • A preliminary agenda for the upcoming call has been proposed by Tnorm9, focusing on blockchain gaming introduction, challenges, and potential solutions through incentives.
  • A one-pager outlining the Game Development and Incentive Program (GDIP) has been shared by Flook10, which will likely be discussed in the upcoming governance calls.
  • Further discussions on the funding approval process, distribution of incentives, and proposal review cycles are expected to take place, as raised by Flook10.
