Quidli is a micro on-ramp connecting Web 2.0 apps and web3 assets for you to embed crypto rewards and incentives into your collaboration workflows to boost participation and motivation. We enables you to recognize your top contributors natively in your Slack and or Discord, and is mainly used today by community managers who want to leverage community engagement on social media. Quidli users include the community teams NEAR Foundation, ETHDenver, OrangeDAO, iExec, Tezos, and Solana Foundation.
We propose to you to build a light integration of METIS Blockchain to Quidli by adding METIS to our API and hosted app environment. This will enable you to seamlessly distribute METIS tokens as rewards to the top active participants in your community directly in your Slack or Discord.
In addition to helping you internally share METIS tokens within your ecosystem, this integration lets us offer METIS to our user base of 1000+ organizations as an option via Quidli’s open token platform.
Once completed, METIS token will be available as an option on:
- Quidli web app
- Quidli Slack app
- Quidli Discord app
- Quidli Telegram app
- Any subsequent integrations built by Quidli
Through this initial partnership, we’d like to help METIS to build an awesome community and ecosystem by enabling you to effectively boost community engagement using token incentives. Sharing more tokens with community members can help you to establish a positive alignment flywheel leading to more contributions and ultimately growth towards your main mission and objectives.
Quidli can also help METIS increase number of new holders: Quidli is used by 1100+ organizations today, and we experienced >$3m in transaction volume over past 12 months. Our platform has a majority of Web2 companies, in particular freelance companies (for example: Flexiple) which use Quidli as a means of payment and rewards for their freelancers (bonus, % of salary). We also work with web3 incubators (Consensus, dlab) who use Quidli on their internal slack server to encourage the founders and start-ups in their portfolio to create a community spirit.
Goals & Objectives:
Our values proposition for METIS:
• Increase community engagement and retain your top contributors, make them feel they are the most valuable asset by rewarding them and recognize their work.
• Rely on community members referrals as your first source of acquisition and rewards them for their contribution.
• Use Quidli metrics in order to better understand how to build a better community on Discord.
Deliverables & Roadmap
- We will integrate the METIS smart contract to our app’s blockchain environment, as well as manage & mantain METIS in our app and across all current and future integrations.
- This 1,200$ METIS grant will cover the initial development work + our maintenance costs + give Quidli exposure to METIS.
