Deployable Tokenized Community Economies

Native is a protocol for community economics. We provide tools for communities - known as Tribes - to realize their inherent value through a local currency and set of governance tools.

Native Network

Native is a collective of Tribes comprised of Curators and Contributors. Tribes are govenerned by their members who make decisons about how to best achieve the Tribe's goals. Native is an antirivalrous ecosystem - when one Tribe grows, all Tribes benefit.

Native Reserve

The Native Reserve provides liquidity and convertibility for Native Tokens. The Reserve’s value grows with each user who joins Native. The Reserve Balance helps to price Native Tokens fairly and ensure everyone that they can redeem their tokens should they want to convert to another token.

Native Token

Native Token is the base currency of Native. It is the entry point for membership to Tribes, and encapsulates the network’s value. Native Token holders are liquidity providers and support the network through its continued growth and contributions from Tribes.

Tribe Token

Each Tribe has a local currency known as a Tribe Token. When a member joins a Tribe, they stake Native Tokens which generates Tribe Tokens at the fair market price. Membership deposits are allocated to the Tribe's development fund and reserve. The market cap of a Tribe Token represents the community's total value.

Development Fund

Each Tribe has a development fund that grows as new members join. The amount of NT in the Development Fund represents one component of the Tribe’s value. The Tribe can allocate these funds to be used for community projects.

Curators

Curators are the founders of Tribes. They develop the purpose of the Tribe and launch the economy. Curators help to facitlitate the Tribe's efforts by adding relevant projects and votes to the dashboard. Additionally, they provide oversight for certain activities within the community.

Contributors

Contributors join Tribes to participate in economies that resonate with their interests and goals. Their contributions are used within the Tribe to fund projects that are voted on by the community. As more Contributors join any individual Tribe, the value of the community increases. This creates a unique structure that puts the members, opposed to leaders, in control.
Art Tribes
Energy Tribes
Syndication Tribes

Art Tribes

Art Tribes enable the creative process for individuals or groups who do not have immediate access to capital. Artists thrive when they are connected to their audience and can focus on their craft. Crowdsourcing is becoming a more common medium for funding projects. Art tribes can organize efforts such as art walks, the creation of murals, paintings, sculptures or simply exist to support and accelerate artistic ventures.

  • 1 Accessible funding for artists
  • 2 Contributors have more impact on how contributions are spent
  • 3 Access to exclusive member events and products

Energy Tribes

Energy Tribes revolve around groups of individuals coming together to create meaningful impact in relation to their energy consumption and creation. For example, a community could fund a new solar panel array which can be collectively owned by the community. Native can provide alternative funding solutions for local communities to acquire and utilize more sustainable methods of energy consumption. They can also be used to have people to determine what the acceptable energy usage levels are for each member.

  • 1 Access to range of opportunities for local energy related initiatives
  • 2 Involve communities in clean energy projects
  • 3 Incentivize users to have lower and cleaner energy consumption

Syndication Tribes

Syndication Tribes are already common across many different sectors. People come together to allocate a common pool of funds towards a common goal. Ronald Coase, in Theory of the Firm, discusses how a firm allows for more coordinated production as its resources are pooled. A Tribe is a firm. These tribes can streamline investment processes, and provide a governance structure to ensure democratic value distribution. They can target specific Contributors and enable access to a target market. One of the most exciting things about crypto is that anything can be tokenized, which leads to a much wider range of possibilities for Tribes in the Syndication category.

  • 1 Raise capital for a group and make decisions together
  • 2 Manage distributions to community members
  • 3 Access to instant liquidity for the community token
