ZENZO & PIVX Alliance Proposal

ZENZO & PIVX Alliance Proposal

Friendly Alliance: 12 Months (1 Year)
Strategic Alliance: Phases 1-6 (reference below)

ZENZO is focused on providing a use case for identity systems by first building an entertainment ecosystem. This system includes bi-directional video game e-commerce, facilitation of independent game development, an online arcade with your favorite games, a private arcade with rare independent titles, and a free-market tournament system. ZENZO is creating an atmosphere that is for the gamer, by the gamer. One that allows for community governance to dictate tournament rules, while allowing individuals to host their own and creating a free-market of monetary value for in-game items and skins. We will allow independent developers to submit games to the ZENZO Hatchery with proposals, in an effort to receive funding, to develop games that our community is most excited to play. Ultimately, the identity system we are building for gaming will expand to other industries, as the world slowly adopts and recognizes the importance of blockchain technologies.

Overview of Alliances:

ZENZO is looking to engage in a long-term alliance with PIVX and we have created a series of phases that we will break down into measurable deliverables. We have deemed the initial alliance a “Friendly Alliance” and the phases are collectively considered a “Strategic Alliance.” A proposal of this type has never been done before and we are intending to create a unique and innovative model for future alliances. We are proposing the Friendly Alliance to last one year and to be evaluated after for renewal. At any point in time, either party may choose to disband the Friendly Alliance, peacefully. This is not a binding alliance but instead finding a way to creatively collaborate and work towards the same goals.

The Friendly Alliances enables both allies to share, when relevant, in a positive light about the other project. This also includes support by sharing big updates, developments, etc. and includes sharing of resources (identified below). The initial alliance will enable future in depth individual proposals on Phases 2-5. Decisions made on Phases 2-5 will have no bearing on the Friendly Alliance (Phase 1). Phases 2-5 will require individual proposals of specified strategic terms which will be identified as Strategic Proposals.

~ The current proposal is for the Friendly Alliance (Phase 1) which may be terminated by PIVX at any time. This proposal is at no cost to PIVX and is not binding. ZENZO will build Strategic proposals in greater depth for Phases 2-5 at a later time. Allowing for both communities to grow through first through a Friendly Alliance.

Wooooooo! Thank you for posting this Kitty and thank you Snappy & Cryptosi for the invitation and openness to collaborate. If anyone has any questions, please contact us here, PIVX Discord, or the ZENZO Discord. We will be happy to address any and all questions, concerns, and suggestions.


#3

Has been great working with everyone so far and think the alliance ideas coming along are great. Glad that someone else can see the value of working together in the crypto space. We will help push crypto out to the world!


#4

a decent starting point, but much more details are needed, and I would caution against submitting this for such a long term (12 months) up front to provide a bit more flexibility.


#5

Thanks for the advice and suggestion Fuzzbawls. We have decided to completely pull the request for the 2,500 PIV for now and we can shorten the timeframe, maybe something like 3 months is more flexible?

We will elaborate more on the deliverables and would also like to host an AMA in the PIVX Discord if everyone would be open to that. Thanks again, man!


#6

We can certainly host an AMA in Discord, just let me know time and date and I’ll politely beg Rhubarb to make us a graphic, or you could make one and I’ll share it?

I also agree with Fuzzbawls, 3 months is great starting length.

Awesome to see this coming together so quickly


#7

Luckily I never have to beg another designer, only developers :wink: We are working on an updated proposal and will share it as soon as possible. I got off the phone earlier with Snappy, who kindly gave some good advice and solutions on how to propose everything more precisely.

Let me chat with the Core Team and we can all arrange a time that the team is free and we can host/PIVX can host an AMA in Discord. I will get back to you as soon as possible on that Cryptosi and probably private message you on Discord.

Thanks for the opportunity PIVX and Pivians, we look forward to a unique and great relationship!


#8

Definitely a great opportunity for PIVX, I just try the site, and the platform, and buy some games using their token ZNZ, it was amazing. Very simple and very easy, totally anonymous, which is the most important part of this IMO.

I can not speak in technical terms, but the idea of buying games using PIVX is AMAZING. I hope this great idea will progress.


#9

Hey, Pivians! We have just updated our proposal (pre). Please check it out and feel free to share any feedback and suggestions. We will be hosting a ZENZO AMA in the PIVX Discord tomorrow on Saturday (February 23rd) at 2 PM EST. Feel free to join, support, and ask questions. We look forward to a long-term and fruitful alliance together. Thanks!


#10

AMA Starting very soon in the PIVX General Voice Channel!


#11

Yes, please join us for the ZENZO AMA in the PIVX Discord (General Voice)!


#12

Super exciting times to be able to build together. We hope to see more interaction and please feel free to stop by our discord and ask questions or express concerns. https://discord.gg/Tc8XPZ


#13

Thanks to the PIVX community for the incredible response. What a fruitful relationship we have here. It will be a good marker for the entire crypto community to see how interpersonal relationships via partnerships can also benefit the economy we are living in. As opposed to the stereotypical PUMP partnerships.
