Peter put together an awesome pitch for a Smash Club.
Here are the goals:
Perpetual funding of Smash esports
Community controlled esports
Help fund under-financed players to attend events
Perpetual funding for Slippi & other Smash infrastructure
Avoid shutdown by Nintendo
Take a look at the linked presentation above and let us know your thoughts and opinions! Could you see this Nounish model applying to other community-led and organized games and esports?
In other news, a really cool opportunity for a few of our valued contributors to visit MIBR in São Paulo. Meeting the team in-person could open the door to a lot of unique opportunities with an incredibly established esports organization. Thoughts on the proposal? Check out linked proposal thread in Discord and feel free to reach out to bright spark#1084, P12#0016, & RECHAO#5440 with any questions!
