There's nothing quite as Community-Led as NFTs.
Non-fungible tokens and communities are inextricably linked. No, that's not quite right — to say there's no NFT without community would imply they're two separate entities. They're one and the same.
I fell into the NFT world (universe?) several weeks ago, and I've been completely blown away by the communities I found there. The value of community is so deeply entrenched in the value of the NFT itself that it's one of the key reasons folks buy them. When purchasing, the community is a key consideration for veteran NFT traders. Is that NFT community a place they actually want to be? Because they know that the sense of community, of belonging, that accompanies their NFT purchase is instant.
Now, we've built an incredible community of members, customers, employees, and investors who have been instrumental in Commsor's journey. My initial idea was, "Wouldn't it be cool to give these folks a physical, visual thing that represents that they've been a key part of this adventure?".
But when we started digging deeper into the idea, we realized there was incredible potential there. Could we use NFTs as an exercise in community-building, brand-building, and marketing? And could we connect NFT communities and traditional, professional community circles? You bet Jurass-we-can.
We're creating our NFTs, and connected community, in a way that enables not just existing NFT traders to get involved, but also brings community builders into the space. We're reserving several hundred tokens for key members of The Community Club and Commsor community. For most of them, this will be their first-ever NFT — and a gateway into a community space they may never have explored before.
Say hello to the Commsaurs
Have you met the original Commsaur? If not, allow me to introduce you. She's been around since the early days of Commsor, and she's the star of our NFT project. All our NFTs will be modeled after her (although they'll all have their own characteristics, style, and dino-mite personality).
Each Commsaur will be randomly generated, and we've developed different body shapes, headwear, glasses, expressions, colors, outfits, backgrounds. Each one will be truly unique. There are something like 3 billion (!) possible dinosaur combinations — and only 8,888 will ever exist.
Commsaurs will be available to buy in early October. We'll be setting aside several hundred before that to give to our early supporters, investors, customers, community members, and employees — as many are likely NFT newbies, we want to give them a chance to claim theirs before opening the floodgates.
We'll see you at the dino-store next month.
