Launch a contest, a call for artists to design the most beautiful yInsure.finance insurance covers as NFT on Rarible/SuperRare etc… Let’s make insurance sexy!
Abstract & motivation:
2020 is a dark year for art, major festivals were canceled, museums and galleries struggle to make ends meet, residencies are killed by travel restrictions and so on… Ask any artist out there, this year is cursed (as an artist I can confirm this as well). Thankfully digital collectibles and artworks minted as NFT (non fungible tokens) are all the rage, virtual art is booming.
Yearn with yInsure (underwritten by Nexus Mutual) is leading the way in Crypto insurance, and now people are opening covers on yInsure and packaging them into NFTs that can be sold to anyone. This is huge and innovative!
Problem is, insurance was never sexy, so let’s merge best of both world and create the most beautiful NFT-packed-insurances in Crypto.
Partner with Rarible (hey Alex @rarible) and other platforms such as SuperRare to launch a contest. Form a jury and vote on the best NFTs, create some great prizes for the winners (maybe some super scarce YFI tokens? YFI merch? Invitation to the Tokyo party?). This would be mutually beneficial to Yearn, to artists and to those platforms (win-win-win).
Artists could play with a lot of concepts, a few ideas:
- Sci-fi, insurance = protective shield, think energy shields like in Star Trek
- Fantasy+Medieval, insurance = protective spells, citadels, castles, armors
- Abstract, insurance = peace of mind, tranquility, calm, confidence, zen
We could have static images, VR/AR pieces, animated pieces etc… Technically it could even be a physical limited-edition object drop similar to what the MetaFactory have been doing.
Examples of digital/crypto art:
Limited edition YFI hoodie by MetaFactory, limited to 100.
One of their previous NFT drops included bombers with RFID chips inside of them that had matching 3D NFT and DAO shares, all in one purchase. Picture below:

Also by Furezasan
And many more… The possibilities and creativity are endless.
Winners could be picked in multiple categories:
Static, animated, physical object, most creative NFT, most technical NFT etc…
I’d be happy to help organize this and be part of the jury, I’m an established artist and I’ve run contests in the past.
Final note, if this is too specific we could also just have a more general contest backed by Yearn, not necessarily linked to Crypto Insurance. Constrain could be that the artwork need to incorporate the Yearn glyph (two arrows forming an infinity sign)
- Organize a contest and call to artists for NFT artworks
- Do nothing
