Humans of Social Money: Marty of $PRBS
“My name is Marty but most people on the web know me as Poormarty. I work in the music industry as an animator to create covers and social content for artists, but I recently dove headfirst into the metaverse. I came across social tokens early on in my journey and I was intrigued by the fact that any creator can build a community around their social token where everyone can benefit.
As a content creator myself, I know first-hand the struggles creators face to monetize their content and be rewarded for the value they create. Social tokens not only changed the way I thought about community but also gave me hope for the future. I 1000% believed this was the answer to the problem creators face.
As a result, POORBUCKS ($PRBS) was born. It started slowly and I spent months planning and mapping out what I thought were the best ways to run a social token as a creator. While I was planning, I was also still learning, so we didn’t launch the token till about a month or so ago. Things are still slow but the community is growing.
Besides creating content, I love to teach and share the things I’ve learned and the roadblocks I’ve faced. So a lot of what I’m focusing on right now is creating space for the community to create, share and help each other. The future of POORBUCKS is wide open. Gaming, virtual avatars, education, NFTs are just some of the things that are coming and will soon be revealed.” — Marty. Follow him on Twitter and join the $PRBS Discord.
