Lunar Assistant: The Giving
Just shy of 4 months ago, GraviDAO came into being out of a shared vision for a decentralised future. We’ve come a long way since then and it’s been a hell of a ride no-one of us would have imagined to happen. Here’s the latest!

Lunar Assistant recap
Lunar assistant, the one-stop Discord bot for token-gated communities has been a great success. Over 8000 users scattered accross 75+ servers are using it every day. The best thing about it? It’s super easy to set up and totally free!
Community requests came in for additional features such as mobile support, CW20 and cross-chain support, and a dashboard interface with voting features. To crowdfund our development, we attended the NFTerra hackathon, and started crafting a small NFT collection to serve as license keys for some of the advanced features. Our efforts were well received by the jury and as a result, we were awarded the NFTerra Grand Prize!!
Fast forward a couple of weeks and we’re at the dawn of mint for “Lunar Assistant: The Giving”, the first of a series of 3D-art collections with metaverse integrations. The second one, an exclusive PFP collection using the Unreal Metahuman gaming engine, got us the OnePlanet Jury Prize and will be due end of Q1.
The Angel Alliance
One of the finest protocols in the Terra ecosystem is undoubtedly Angel Protocol, an intelligent project capitalising on Anchor Protocol to offer perpetual donations to charity partners. GraviDAO being a community-centred collective, it was a no-brainer to partake in this effort and become a member of the Angel Alliance.
As such, we’re auctioning 20 custom ‘Legendary’ NFTs with 50% of the proceeds going into the Angel Endowment. These pieces come with their own mythological name and feature unique traits such as wings and special orbs. Additionally, it’s holders will have a special place in our community with exclusive airdrops and perks coming their way.
The Angel pieces will be auctioned in ten sets of two, a light and a dark twin. Holders are incentivized to have a matching set, either individually or among friends, to capitalise on the perks coming their way.
Possibilities, airdrops, utility and perks
Even though these NFTs are first and foremost a means to fund the development of community tooling, we wouldn’t be satisfied without taking this opportunity to create something truly special and long-lasting. Here’s a breakdown of everything you can expect from us.
The Lunar Assistant series
Our first collection “The Giving”, featuring 500 unique hands with armour HUDs holding an orb, is the first in a series of 3D-modelled NFTs with the end goal creating a collection of full-body 3D avatars. These avatars will be mintable by holders of the series using the ‘Exodia’ or ‘Voltron’ concept i.e. combining different body parts into a fully-fledged being.
A gang of G-Borgs is on its way!
Our pieces are hand-modelled by Brazilian artist Guilherme Manera using 3D software. As such, the elements such as the armour HUD can be brought in-game and we’re actively setting up partnerships with the players in that space.
Just imagine walking around with your NFT attributes and you get the jist!
As a utility NFT
Projects wanting to use the Lunar Assistant dashboard and voting interface will need one NFT per server they wish to use it on. In this way, our NFTs act as perpetual licenses for advanced features. More information on the dashboard can be found below.
Airdrops and perks
GraviDAO, being a provider of community tooling, is in the perfect position to acquire gifts from participating projects for our gang of G-Borgs. Without spilling confidential information we can already disclose the following:
- 150 Breadclip x GraviDAO orbs, mintable for free by whitelisted members.
- A custom Wagmimonkeez x GraviDAO NFT raffled among Angel holders.
- A custom Unstables x GraviDAO NFT raffled among Angel holders.
- 10 Lunaverse token airdrops for our top ten holders.
- Airdrops and WL-entries for side collections (new HUDs and Orbs).
- Give-aways and pre-auction WL-entries for our second collection in the Lunar Assistant series, a tiny batch of PFPs launching on OnePlanet.
- More token airdrops from ***, ****** and *********
Lunar Assistant dashboard
Doing token-weighted voting is critical for crypto communities. However, Terra lacks a lot of infrastructure necessary to facilitate this. NFT voting to date isn’t available and current governance contracts for token voting only provide options for a few different voting styles. In addition, it is only the well-funded projects who are able to develop voting contracts and governance systems tailored to their needs.
We believe every community should be able to set up their own governance structures. In light of this, our first efforts post-mint will go towards building a Lunar Assistant dashboard where admins can manage their Discord roles and set up token-weighted voting using NFTs or tokens.
This is only a first step in building out governance solutions on Terra, serving as an intermediary while we develop a more complete governance platform.
Lunar Development Warchest
Even though our own roadmap covers a lot of community requests, as outlined in the Lunar Assistant whitepaper, we recognize new requests might come in along the way. To meet these needs, GraviDAO will set up a community governed Lunar Development Warchest. NFT holders will be able to make proposals for new features and have them funded and developed by GraviDAO and partners.
