Title: Name of District
Vegas City

**Rocket Chat
At decentraland.org
#District_Vegas_City

Proposal (join Decentraland Rocket Chat) - Use this link.
https://chat.decentraland.org/file-upload/Hdv79MvDQbn6nQYru/Fremont%20City%20District%20Proposal.pdf

Description: Discuss in a paragraph the details of your Proposal
This is designed to be the digital sin city, party town gambling district of Decentraland.
Designed in a style that emulates the Vegas strip, lies a long row of casinos, shopping, concert and performance halls, nightclubs, and sin.
The plan includes integrating District0x community rules, with gaming modules and digital betting cryptos as Funfair, and BitDice and managing a fun, yet managed community where the house also gets a slice of the action.
Do you fancy yourself part of an online Vegas City community?

This needs doing right, and doing in style. Certain style guidelines to accentuate a city theme should be adhered to for the community - an old wood texture house in the middle of the strip for example, isn't in line with the district guidelines. Although creativity is welcomed.
Let's make this happen, just a short travel from the main hub, but well frequented by all who come to Decentraland.

Dave Clancey - dclancy13@gmail.com
James Ashton - jamesashton@yahoo.com

Goal: What does this District want to accomplish (i.e. generate revenue for its owners, act as a public gathering place, just be for fun)

A managed Vegas style strip, complete with everything from gambling locations to club / dance / concert / comedy / theater venues, a conference center and more that you would expect in a Sin City style environment. There should be plenty of opportunity to monetize a space like Vegas City with revenue and voting models calculated from LAND contributions (see Proposal).

Estimates TBC based on Proposal – Creating the shell rental properties / designing the District guidelines, integrating with existing ETH based platforms such as District0x, Funfair etc., Creating Styles & Themes, event management / promotions and marketing across multiple social platforms such as Adwords and Facebook Ads

@dclancy13 I've just read your #10 proposal - sorry for the overlap - I agree we could work on this in tandem - and yes, #6 should be an element, although I suspect that should be a separate, although maybe nearby district, while elements of red light stuff should also be directly integrated into Vegas City.

I'm willing to invest $ into devs, and design of this community as an acting founder, or co-founder - and happy to work with you with concepts / production in the early stages.

We should open a slack, and discuss the submission process, requirements, and size of interest needed. Although, based on the subject matter I don't anticipate interest will be hard to obtain.

I'm a software project producer and designer by trade and this could grow into a nice team - the casino integrations particularly excite me, and I've invested in a lot of gambling ICO's to help gain a better understanding on how things could evolve.

studyingMole commented Sep 29, 2017

@visualmagic I could be interested in helping out with the district but primarily focused on Nightclub(s) and "Live" music entertainment.

I had submitted a proposal with high level architecture for streaming live music events into DCL: decentraland/proposals/issues/110; I wasn't sure if a venue in the generic zone or a venue in a specific district would be more appropriate, but if this district was large enough/had enough attention, it'd probably be wise to setup a live music venue there.

visualmagic commented Sep 29, 2017

Definitely looking at a very large space @studyingMole - I would appreciate your input in setting up these venues in Vegas City.

There should be multiple venues, some within clubs, and some open air. Are you in the Decentraland slack? If not there is enough cause to create a new one for those unable to access.

studyingMole commented Sep 29, 2017

@visualmagic yea, DCL slack name is 'maelstrom.tech'

I'd hope there would be multiple venues, more to cater for different tastes/themes. Can appeal to more users that way.

Good evening ladies and gentleman what an exciting project, I wish you the best of luck. I am not a developer myself but from reading would be eager to be involved even if it were just staking vegas. Does anyone have a moment to explain if there is permission required from the group to stake or be involved somehow. Although my dev skills are not A grade my creative concepts are my area and would also love to talk to someone that is looking for DC project ideas. There is one in particular I have been working on that I know will be a fantastic earner as well as being visually stunning. Looking to stake a few of the other districts but if someone could fill me in I would really appreciate it. - Dylan from Australia

Ok, just joined the crew. As far as staking this project goes is it simply a matter of selecting vegas when doing the teraform and then allocating mana?

@WellsyD I believe that's how it works. All the staked MANA gets converted to LAND at a fixed price of 1000 MANA per LAND.

Great idea, I'm a designer/branding specialist. I think this will get a huge following. The current name is great for getting people to contribute to a district because its an easy reference to the main idea but AFTER the terraforming event you should probably think of a better name like Sin City, Dream City, Vega, Sedu etc.

Joeuro commented Dec 13, 2017

I'm confused by a comment from nomad18, he contributed 1 land, but realized it doesn't belong to him? I'm confused. Does the land we contribute to the project not actually belong to us? Or are we just supporting Vegas City and then we will earn revenue when the city generates revenue? Any info would help at this late stage in the game.

Did you guys/gals not read the districts proposal? It's all in there. From the proposal, here is the section with the answer to your question:

Leadership​ ​Structure
The primary goal of the leadership team is the long term success and prosperity of
Fremont City and its contributors. To that end, we are proposing that all LAND currently
allocated to the project be placed under the authority of the district,​ ​with the following LAND
owner advantages.
Each parcel of LAND contributed to the Fremont City District will be tokenized and
represent an ownership stake in the entire project. As such token holders will be entitled to a
share in the overall revenue generated from the entire project as long as he/she remains in
possession of said tokens. Over the long term tokens will also serve a voting function.
After the core infrastructure of Fremont City is built and proven robust, the leadership
team will begin accepting project proposals for development. Proposals that are sufficiently
developed (i.e they adhere to the principals of the district, are adequately funded and have a
solid team) will go to a vote whereby token holders will be able to determine which project
proposals go ahead and which do not.
A structured governance will always be necessary for this district due to the nature of the
content, and complexity of the project operations. However; over time we will strive to commit as
many aspects of the district as possible to a community voting process.

Can i own a land in the district based on my contribution to run business? i believe that district is fine but idea is to have own property to rub business. I would like to have land based on contribution and run business as owner.
