Introducing Community Programs & Chestr Social Club

TL;DR: Sign up on www.chestr.io before Sep 11 to claim a free Chestr Social Club token!

Since the start of Chestr, we’ve been offering a few staple community programs: Direct Bids, Gas Fee Sponsorships, Content Bounties.

The goal of our programs has always been to support creators of different experience levels.

We’ve been able to support hundreds of creators, but time to take it to the next level.

Starting today, we’re going to introduce a new structure to all community programs.

What’s better to support individual creators than to directly bid on their work, right?

Every week on Wednesday, we’ll be announcing the week’s budget on Twitter and asking the community to suggest NFTs that we should bid on.

We’ll be asking for suggestions on Twitter, then vote on Discord

Each piece will be evaluated based on effort level, execution, engagement, and peer endorsement.

We will narrow down from all the suggestions into the final 5, then we begin community voting in the #social-club-voting channel in Discord to select the final winner together.

Every week on Friday, we’ll be asking the community which pieces of work we should help mint.

Anyone interested can share their unminted work, as well as title & description.

Let’s help each other build good habits, by introducing clarity and intention to our pursuits in the NFT space.

Every week on Monday, come share your goals for the week, then on Friday tell us whether you’ve achieved them.

Let’s get real and get moving.

We’ll keep each other accountable and help create consistent progress.

A random winner will be picked from those who completed at least one goal, and a gas fee sponsorship will be issued to the winner.

Every 2 weeks, we’ll be hosting a Twitter space where everyone is welcome to chill, shill, and talk all things NFT.

This is a good chance for us to get to know each other better and to share more about our own work.

We’ll also be making announcements and exchanging ideas in these sessions, so be sure to come hang out!

Roughly every 2–3 weeks we’ll be dropping a new bounty, where we specify the submission details and engage our community members for their creative. Each bounty will have specific requirements, rewards, and expiry dates.

Our goal is to encourage creators to collaborate and explore forms of expression that are unique to the NFT format.

Take a look at the past bounties here.

Roughly every 2–3 weeks we’ll be dropping a new mystery chest series featuring 6–8 creators in the community.

Similar to the Genesis Series, each chest in the series can be purchased and unlocked to reveal a random NFT, plus additional content.

Our goal is to create more opportunities for creators to gain exposure and to facilitate secondary sales.

100% of the proceeds from each Community Showcase Series will be reinvested into community programs.

What about Chestr Social Club?

As you may have noticed, some voting processes are not open to the public. Experience has taught us that public votes are hard to organize well especially when there’s money involved.

That said, we’d love to involve our community members as much as possible, today we’re officially introducing the Chestr Social Club.
