We get excited about every token launch on Roll. A social token launch represents the hand off of community ownership to the members of the community, and that is fundamentally a pretty world-changing idea. As more groups see the value of connecting through web3 technologies the power shifts from the gatekeepers to the people.
We have a number of new social tokens to launch, but even better, we have a number of new communities to share with you. Maybe you’re interested in Steve Harvey’s personal development company, you’re a fan of the music from Beauty School Dropout, or enjoy the international live shows put on by Groovypedia. Maybe you’re fascinated by Lucid Project’s transition to web3 as they abandon traditional social media, the crypto-native free learning community of Performante, or the social justice vision of the PTTP DAO.
The diversity of these groups highlight how any type or organization can center on community with web3 tools like social tokens. We’re super excited to dive into these examples and share these amazing communities with you. If your community is looking to develop a strong web3 infrastructure please get in touch! We’d love to be a part of that journey.
Who’s on a Roll
The more people you help become successful the more successful you become. – Steve Harvey
With a quote like that it’s no surprise Steve Harvey started Vault Empowers, a personal development organization that offers inspiration and education for future leaders, entrepreneurs, and corporate visionaries. And within that ethos of becoming successful by helping others they have recently launched their social token $VAULT.
The members of Vault Empowers now have a real stake in the community itself. As they come together in web3 that spirit of success and helpfulness manifests in a peer-to-peer learning culture. Vault is bringing a lot of new people into crypto and they couldn’t be better served than with a community dedicated to education and self-development.
Plus, they have some pretty amazing token rewards! 😉
Social Token Governance
👀This section covers everything that has to do with DAOS, from new launches to governance proposals to any DAO-related news.
DAOs are not just about community governance, they’re about community participation and interaction as well as fostering a sense of inclusiveness and belonging. SKULL DAO, having art as its north star, organized a drawing competition with prizes of up to 1000 $SKULL in their Discord
Now, the DAO is hosting a vote on Snapshot to have community members vote on the competition’s winner. If you want to bring out the art critic that you’re hiding within you, join the $SKULL Discord to see the entries, and then head over to their Snapshot circle to cast your vote (requires at least 1 $SKULL).
BSD drops $DRPT
Beauty School Dropout (BSD), a Los Angeles-based “Renegade-Pop” band launched in 2020, joins a continuously growing list of musicians at the forefront of social tokens and web3 with the launch of their own social token $DRPT.
Web3, and specifically $DRPT, gives us the ability to bring value to early community members and enhance the fan-to-band experience. – Beauty School Dropout
The launch of their social token is yet another step in the band’s venture in the world of web3, following their minting of music NFTs on Catalog and the creation of a landing page on Tell.ie.
Right now, fans can earn $DRPT by participating in different call-to-arms in the band’s Discord, and they can use the tokens to redeem rewards, such as unreleased songs and BSD merch. You can learn more about $DRPT in their whitepaper.
Lucid Project is a creative network that lives at the intersection of music, culture, & mindfulness. Connecting retail brands with artists and curators, Lucid has built a strong reputation for creating intimate and impactful experiences. Their upcoming collaboration with fashion brand Billy Reid is the latest in a string of luxe projects that have included Miami yacht parties, Art Basel gallery openings, & more.
Lucid has unique plans to fully transition from a platform dominated Web2 world to a more creator friendly Web3 space. To achieve this, they’ll be “unplugging” from all social media platforms and growing a tight knit digital community in their newly launched Discord. Holding $LUCID will grant exclusive access to live & digital experiences, creator-to-brand networking opportunities, and future liquidity.
For a limited time, earn 5 $LUCID here and become part of the Lucid network.
Passion to the People is a Web3 content studio and social justice initiative dedicated to unifying people from all walks of life with the goal of promoting cooperation and collaboration.
$PTTP, their social token that they just launched, grants access to creative tools, workshops, creative collab opportunities, and governance roles via the $P’Town DAO, and other perks for the $PTTP community.
Make sure to visit their website to learn more, as well as to earn some $PTTP by watching some of their content.
Following the soft-launch of their Discord, independent music platform Groovypedia is back with more ways fans can engage in their community and earn $GROOVY in the process.
More specifically, starting 1st of March, they’re running a month-long airdrop of $GROOVY for people that complete certain actions like following them on Twitter or joining their Discord server. If you want to participate, head over to their website.
