    An interesting idea to provide information about the Singularity ecosystem to the gaming community. With the amount of work outlined in the proposal, I think it will require a large team (marketing, design, admin). Do you have any plans for this issue since I only see one person mentioned in the proposal?

    not yet attracted

    The proposal of this project is creative in trying to combine a very famous game and our community foundation, I know your goal is to expand the name of the community so that more people can know coming, especially young people. Even though this is a good initiative, I find that the content of this project proposal is not really attractive and can attract many people to participate. How can your project be attractive enough to attract players? This will not be a simple problem, because young people are mostly only interested in games because of the attractive content.

    Need to do a survey?

    Thanks to the project owner, Mihaibarbulescu, I see that the budget is distributed very evenly across 6 milestones, each milestone is $2,000 out of a total of $12,000. This proposal with the main idea of providing creative maps turned into puzzles, it has integrated existing product technology of ReJuve and SophiaVERSE and some other technologies.... Seems quite solid to create products - that is high feasibility and high usefulness. It certainly brings a positive impact to the SNET ecosystem and even some other ecosystems that the author takes advantage of the proposed technology.
    I'm thinking about whether I should create a community opinion survey about the product, to see how they view the product and whether they support the product long term or not?

    Gamifying AI Education

    This idea offers a creative way to use the well-known game Fortnite to teach and involve young players in the concepts of blockchain and artificial intelligence. It seeks to close the knowledge gap by deftly incorporating instructional materials into games.

    Specific goals should be stated

    This is the second recommendation that I have read by author Mihaibarbulescu, an interesting and highly educational proposal about SingularityNET's AI services. I appreciate unique creativity. Once again it brings benefits to participants and SNET.
    Obviously the proposal is feasible, but I want to mention user engagement with the product of the proposal once completed? Does it really engage the community and what is the team's perception of the milestones that need to be achieved to demonstrate the success of this proposal?
