Colony Hackathon Submission

Augmented Basketball Association (ABA)

Project Description
TL;DR I'm creating a futuristic, fantasy Basketball League of Augmented Athletes run entirely by DAOs.

I wanted to see if it would be possible to run an entire basketball league using DAOs. This will be one part experiment and the other part blockchain game. There will be multiple basketball teams with their own colonies basically acting as a front-office or administrative organization for the basketball team.

The basketball players will be ERC-721 Non-Fungible tokens owned by a basketball team (in this case a colony). The entire basketball season will be simulated, meaning teams will get to draft players, and we will simulate actual games similar to the MyLeague feature in NBA 2k. The result of those games will be logged onto the blockchain. I'm still thinking of incentive mechanisms for teams that perform well, as they represent a strong colony.

As for why I wanted the basketball players to be augmented, I though it would be more fun that way. The setting of the game will be in the near future where human augmentation is controversial, but becoming more widely adopted (Think Deus Ex); and the NBA has started an experimental league called the (ABA) Augmented Basketball Association to see what is possible. If people like owning cats, tulips, and shrimps on the blockchain; I thought it would be cooler to own an entire basketball team.

More information to come as the hackathon starts...

I love this idea as a huge fantasy football player myself. I wonder if running fantasy sports on top of colony is a good idea. Do you guys need help? I am an ethereum protocol dev, currently working on sharding, can do solidity and javascript

Hi mates! Keen on methodology and imitation games and ERC-721 topica should be also discovered by these means, quite on the matter Augmented Basketball Association is just great! Excited to join your project! Let's see if a cryptonewbie like me could contribute anyhow as well

Hey @tomson189 nice to meet you, I'm planning on setting up a Gitter tomorrow for easier communication, but in the mean time send me an email at erick@handsomecodemonkey.com and let me know what skills you have (technical or non-technical we could use both) and what you hope to get out of the hackathon! Newbies are fine!
