Welcome to the Bufficorn #BUIDL Brigade, (B³), a utility-based NFT PFP community brought to you by SporkDAO & ETHDenver.

The unicorn may be a good meme for the VC community, but it isn’t a great representation of the ethos of Web3. After all, how often do you see a unicorn with other unicorns (or any other animal for that matter)? Never. The unicorn is a solitary creature that basks in its mystery alone.
Then there’s the buffalo, a herd animal that runs, eats, poops, sleeps, and roams with its community, but it isn’t known for magic or majesty.
Legend has it that centuries ago, a treaty was formed between the Unicorns of Etherea and the Buffaloes of Colorado to create a new species of community-oriented, magical, fantastical animals: the Bufficorn.
The Bufficorns (monocerus magicalis bisonae) embody the best of both worlds. They #BUIDL for positive-sum outcomes and encourage the expression of unique creativity by each member of the community.
As a furtherance of this community #BUIDLing propensity, The Bufficorn #BUIDL Brigade is a perfect expression of what it means to “be a Bufficorn” and to be passionate about #BUIDLing the decentralized future: You be you and express your inner creativity in a way that creates fulfillment and value for you and the community.

Road Map & Value Accrual
The SporkDAO community is focused on three core values: Education, Community, and #BUIDLING.
ETHDenver, in four installations, has hosted over 40,000 Bufficorns from 104 countries. Over 800 projects have been birthed with over $100M in funding being allocated to some of the top projects from top VCs and community funding sources. That said, with all of the value that the ETHDenver community has created, up to now, almost no value has accrued back to the ETHDenver community itself.
With all of the value that the ETHDenver community has created, up to now, almost no value has accrued back to the ETHDenver community itself.
SporkDAO aims to change this paradigm. We have designed a positive-sum economic game design such that projects that #BUIDL at ETHDenver will have the opportunity to receive their first outside capital from the community itself.
Via Bufficorn Ventures and ColoradoJam, both metaDAOs of the SporkDAO community, projects will have the opportunity to receive up to $500K in seed funding. A total of $5M has been earmarked for the 2022 and 2023 ETHDenver epochs.
The Bufficorn #BUIDL Brigade will play a vital role in distributing value to community members. There is a growing list of incentives to holding a B³ NFT, including but not limited to: Random $SPORK drops to B³-holders, access to rare swag, priority access to private events, and automatic acceptance to ETHDenver.
In the coming years, SporkDAO will be expanding its offerings beyond ETHDenver. Global events, NFT partnerships, investments, and deepening our technology incubation are on the horizon.
SporkDAOs long list of supporters continues to grow. The top Web3 projects in the world are Members: MakerDAO, Chainlink, Opolis, Balancer, Uniswap, NEAR, Harmony, ConsenSys, Gitcoin, and hundreds more are contributing time and resources to see the community grow and accrue value for its Members.
Now’s a pretty good time to tell you, in case you didn’t know already, if you’ve ever attended, sponsored, spoken at, vended for, volunteered or Stewarded ETHDenver, great news, you’re a Member too!
The PFP that keeps on Giving
Bufficorns work together to support all members of the herd:
By mid-November all Bufficorns will have a special role in the SporkDAO/ETHDenver Discord with access to token-gated Discord channels, compliments of our friends over at Abridged.
When all 10,000 are minted, we will hold a special giveaway, in which 25 (twenty-five) of the 10k B³ will be randomly selected to win Signed Physical Artist Prints of your B³.
There will be random $SPORK Token Airdrops — Rarity Based Distribution to all B³ Holders:
Tier 1 Reward: Rarity #1–500
Tier 2 Reward: Rarity #501–2,500
Tier 3 Reward: Rarity #2,501–10,000
The drops to Tier 1 will be higher than the drops to Tier 2 which will be higher than the drops to Tier 3. The important piece to remember is all of the B³ are eligible for the $SPORK airdrops. Rarity Tier will be based on Rank over at Rarity.Tools.
