📃MUADAO White Paper

Tl;dr

MUA is the first asset creator community that centers around the Artificial Intelligence + Human Modular Universal Asset Protocol. Through the MUA-initiated MUA7648 protocol, we accelerate the modularization of AI Agent assets, support the unlimited issuance and royalty recursion of asset splits and combinations, achieve value interoperability between humans and AI Agents, and maximize economic prosperity. The MUA ecosystem includes MUA7648, MUA Academy, MUA Cantina, MUA Labs,and MUAverse, with over 5,000 certified creators, establishing it the largest asset creator community in the industry.

Foreword

In 2008, when the first genesis block with a sequence number of 0 was created, few could have imagined that in just sixteen years, humanity would create a new world for itself. In 2023, as Earth Online continues to iterate new versions, humans are becoming familiar with and accepting the gradual integration of AI Agents into our daily lives and work. What changes might the next sixteen years bring? Will androids dream of electric sheep? Will AI self-awaken and possess its own Earth Online ID?

The assets created by humans can be valued and bound by fiat currency accounts, but how are assets created by AI defined, valued, and traded with humans?

The answer is almost clear: the blockchain-based crypto wallets and currencies are sufficient to support the productivity exchanges based on value creation in the next era where humans may coexist with AI.

Current State of Web3 AI Assets

Unlike Large Language Models (LLMs) that require significant GPU support to enter product iterations, the AI ecosystem in Web3 leans more towards the application of AI Agents. Currently, while most AI Agent products offer smart interactive experiences, they commonly face the following issues:

Lack of Personalization: Despite the ability to customize character appearances, the depth of interaction and personalized content often remain homogenized, failing to meet individual user needs.

Limited Scalability: Many AI Agents' functions and capabilities are difficult to expand or upgrade after their initial design, which limits the product’s long-term appeal and user engagement.

Lack of Ownership and Tradability: Users can create or customize content and characters, but there is a lack of true ownership, making it difficult to form genuinely tradable AI assets that are relevant to the users.

What is MUA DAO?

Mission:

Modular Universal Asset (MUA) is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that aims to liberate creators, including humanized and AI Agents, from the current economic constraints of the industry. Our mission is to facilitate the free upgrading and combination of Artificial Intelligence + Humanized Modular Universal Assets, maximizing benefits for all involved. As the largest creators' guild in the crypto world, MUA is committed to providing a wealth of outstanding builder resources for the industry, optimizing community-owned assets for maximum utility, and sharing profits with token holders.

Community:

The founding team is the core and the earliest participants of MUA DAO. The composition of the DAO will gradually expand to include early investors and, most importantly, those interested in building modular encrypted assets. This includes professionally trained builders with design experience, whose backgrounds span:

  1. Creators in the design industry who are professionally trained and experienced in design (painting, animation, special effects, etc.)

  2. AI Agent creators who are professionally trained and experienced in production (rigging, character design, voice training, prompts, etc.)

  3. Game industry creators who are professionally trained and experienced in business operations (3D modeling, motion capture, game development, level design, game planning, etc.)

  4. Community players interested in AI Agents or GameFi.

Governance:

Like most DAOs today, MUA DAOs use a combination of on-chain and off-chain approaches. On-chain governance revolves around token voting, while off-chain governance combines discussions and forum posts, forming a formal on-chain governance vote.

The governance process is:

1. High-level community discussions using chat and calls

2. Forum proposals with soft consensus

3. Token voting to achieve hard consensus

4. If passed while reaching a quorum, the proposal is implemented

To ensure the DAO develops quickly and smoothly while maintaining the community’s voice, the early community will give specific rights to a group of individuals/community representatives. For example, members of the vault committee can draw on input from the wider community and are ultimately entitled to make management decisions on grant allocations.

Whether a specific working group is still needed at a later stage will be decided by a community vote depending on the development stage.

Tokenomics

Protocol Token :$MUA

Token Distribution

  • Community (including Airdrop & KOL): 50.5%

  • Community Treasury: 18.0%

  • Advisors: 1.5%

  • Investors: 15.0%

  • Team: 15%

Token Distribution Details:

Community (Including Airdrop & KOL)

505,000,000 (50.5% of total allocation)

Community will have 0.99% of their allocation released at TGE , the rest vested linearly for 36 months.

Protocol Token Rewards

The community will vote to switch on the feature of distributing token rewards to token holders. This is where we will introduce staking vaults to receive the rewards directly through smart contracts into their accounts. Mechanics of the distribution will be subject to proposal submission. The intention is to create staking vaults to earn rewards from the network as an APY.

MUA will eventually introduce various staking vaults that enable token stakes to earn rewards, encompassing MUA’s overall activities as well as specific activities.

A vault may also be designed to have a combination of token rewards from activities of the network and extra membership privileges such as discounts on the trading service charges.

Community Treasury: 180,000,000 tokens (18.0% of total allocation)

The MUA Treasury will hold 18.0% of the total tokens, will have 33.3% of their allocation released at TGE, the rest linearly vested for 12 months. This portion is allocated to support various community initiatives and operations within the MUA DAO ecosystem without any restrictions on immediate availability.

Advisors:

15,000,000 (1.5% of total allocation)

Advisors will have 33.3% of their allocation released at the network launch,the rest vested linearly for 24 months.

Investors :

150,000,000 (15.0% of total allocation)

Investors will have 10% of their allocation released at TGE. 90% of their token allocation will have a 1-year lock-up period and then their tokens will vest linearly for 1 year after the lock up period.

Excess tokens, an amount to be determined, will be released during the token generation event.

Team:

150,000,000 (15% of total allocation)

Members of the founding team will have 100% of their token allocation, with a 1-year lock-up period, after which the tokens will vest linearly over a further 2 years.

Value Proposition:

The value of the $MUA token is calculated as follows:

Where:

  • A represents all transaction fees collected within MUA Cantina, such as launchpads for various 7648NFT assets, minting fees, and transaction service fees.

  • B represents the initial development and minting revenue share for all digital assets created for brand owners (including scene development, AI characters, NFT merchandise, etc.).

  • C represents investment earnings locked in the MUA Treasury from purchasing nodes on various cooperative platforms (such as Gaianet, Myshell, Ultiverse, etc.).

  • D represents income from commercial cooperation related to MUA Labs.

  • E represents subscription fees for advanced tutorials and exhibition pages charged by MUA Academy.

  • Z represents other income generated and captured by other sub-DAOs within the ecosystem.

Token Recycling and Burning Mechanism

The MUA token incorporates a deflationary mechanism through four distinct methods that facilitate token burning:

  1. Early Withdrawal Burn: If $MUA tokens are unstaked prematurely, the staking rewards in MUA tokens will automatically be burned.

  2. NFT Series Merging for Brands/Events: Users holding NFTs from the same series can merge their NFTs by burning $MUA tokens as a fee for creating limited edition NFTs. These limited edition NFTs are scarce and pre-designed by the team.

  3. Automatic Burn from Transaction Fees: An automated mechanism is deployed to burn a portion of all transaction fees.

Token Use Cases:

$MUA can be used for the following purposes:

  • Transaction Fees on Cantina Platform: Use $MUA tokens to pay for transaction fees on the trading platform Cantina.

  • Payment for Network Services: Use $MUA tokens to pay for other services provided by the network, such as AI Agent node services.

  • Staking for Service Fee Discounts: Stake $MUA tokens to receive discounts on service fees on the trading platform Cantina.

  • Staking for Token Rewards in All Activities: Stake $MUA tokens to earn token rewards related to all activities within the ecosystem.

  • Staking for Special Event Token Rewards: Stake $MUA tokens to earn token rewards related to special events.

  • Staking for Exclusive Merchandise: Stake $MUA tokens to order exclusive merchandise.

Economic Model

MUA Treasury:

The role of the MUA Treasury is to oversee the management of MUA assets to maximize the return to the MUA DAO over time.

Economic Activities:

  • Asset Purchases: Buy assets in the form of cryptocurrencies, SAFTs, etc., and develop MUA 7648 asset NFTs to foster the growth of the creator economy.

  • Token Management: Manage tokens that are locked, unallocated, or unclaimed.

  • Guidance for Protocol Revenue-Related Asset Acquisitions: Provide guidance for events that involve asset acquisitions tied to protocol revenue (including any buy-backs and future funding rounds).

  • Financial Operations: Carry out financial operations such as accounting, auditing, reporting, and taxation. The Treasury assets are managed by the three co-founders using a multi-signature Gnosis wallet.

Fund Allocation: Ultimately, the DAO will be responsible for continuously making decisions regarding the allocation of Treasury funds. Until the DAO is in place and fully decentralized, the founding team will propose a funding allocation plan based on the amount raised, including anticipated funds from token generation events.

Portfolio Reporting: A portfolio tracking component will be added to the website, allowing guild members to view MUA's financial and performance data in real time.

This structure ensures that the MUA Treasury functions transparently and efficiently, aligning with the decentralized ethos of the DAO while supporting the growth and operational efficiency of the entire MUA ecosystem.
