Humans of Social Money – Shawn from $PUNM
“I run a Youtube channel where I started exploring crypto just before the bull run started early in 2021. By doing research for the channel, I came across different aspects of crypto such as NFTs, and social tokens. I was inspired by what Connie Digital was doing with $HUE, and I decided to create my own token to further explore the possibilities.
Much in the way I use Youtube, which for me is a vehicle to help and inform artists, I grew excited and motivated at the possibility of using a social token to do the same. The plan is to build something that resembles a record company that’s community-owned. Artists can be artists and have the assistance of marketing, design, and technical people, education, as well as access to tools that can be used to grow and advance their careers.
Artists should be able to put up a bounty of $PUNM in the community for engagement and feedback on their new tracks. It’ll be its own economy where everyone is working and earning $PUNM and the work they’re doing contributes to the growth and value of the token and the community that backs it.” — Shawn from PayUsNoMind.
