Proposed marketing partnership with KnowYourMeme at a cost of $42,000, with $25,000 paid up front in USD and $17,000 (USD Value) in $DOG paid at the end of the campaign. The main thrust of this proposal is to cement The Doge NFTs legacy on the ultimate meme website for all of eternity, which we can reference for years to come.
-Background on KnowYourMeme

Hot facts about KYM:

I agree with this feedback. I do think this would be a massive partnership/sponsorship that is on-brand and legitimizes Own the Doge above all other meme coins/projects that will pay dividends over a long time. However, there needs to be a better payment schedule:
To pay overtime that’s either milestone based and/or
More linear vesting over a longer timespan to mitigate price impact.
I think that at least 25-50% of the $17k in DOG will need to be held for 12-18 months in pixels. Can work with KYM to get them an ENS like knowyourmemeofficial, KYMPixelVault, or something like that. Have them put their ENS somewhere on the website to verify.
good idea - KYM should have a vested interest and take part of the community bc ultimately this would benefit them…$25k upfront seems steep, considering their website is wildly outdated and their publications seem to be on the backend instead of a feature. my 2 cents
I am all for the collaboration with KYM, since they are part of the “history” but not just now. If I understand correctly we would receive:
an article under “editorial”, but not the actual page memes/thedogenft
promotion through their social media
They have quite lagre TikTok and FB accounts (1.5M) while twitter and instagram are a bit lacking behing. The promotion on such accounts is good obviously, but I do not think macro now is favourable to be spending that much for above.
For start I would love to see the paragraph here: Doge | Know Your Meme. I think this it all that matters for now.

bought by Pleasr for 4M, which is the 3rd most expensive photo…
Not too long and not overly complicated. This would put us in the history, since the project would be featured on the most famous meme encyclopedia in the most famous meme article.
For editorials, meme insiders and other promotion… The time will come.
