Protocol Overview

The Guild strives to promote inclusivity and diversity amongst our user base to facilitate career exploration and individual autonomy. We have crafted three distinct identities open to all but allow for greater career specializations. With these set of tools, our aim is to provide improved income opportunities, bolster reputations, connect work profiles on a more substantial level, and strive towards continuous learning and professional growth.

In this section, we will be taking a deeper look at how The Guild works, and explain how it can be best utilized. The Guild’s primary offering is to allow any community to collectively operate a decentralized quest board for posting and completing tasks that are rewarded. This helps to align incentives around production and value, as mutual participation strengthens the ecosystem.

Target Users

The Guild is designed for collective community ownership. Development is funded through the treasury with further growth being roadmapped through community proposals. The Board upon reaching self-sustainability can make a transition into a self-governing cooperative contributing to subsidies of the DAO via a revenue sharing model. This will then ensure a circular economic system. It was imperative to us when developing this to prioritze user incentives rather than solely maximizing shareholder profits or VC ROIs.

Our Quest Board is comprised of several parts to be leveraged by any community and easily transitions into a sustainable DAO structure.
