Deliverables: Tokenomics, First smart contracts, Launch token, Buy tokens, Earn rewards, Send DMs, Access perks.

Achievements: 18.5k users, CoinList Seed Fall Batch, Raised $1.65M


From November 2021 to March 2022, we built a tool where talent can launch a token and where supporters can back them.

We focused on ambitious knowledge workers and digital builders to join as talent and crypto natives to join as supporters.

Season 1 is for early believers and beta testers.

The main benefits for users of Season 1 are:

  1. Access to a closed and safe environment to experiment with social tokens;
  2. Earn a higher amount of Rewards in $TAL;
  3. Talent accounts receive $200 worth of their own talent tokens when they launch;
  4. Access to $TAL token at a discounted price.

What happened in Season 1?

In Season 1 (Talent Tokens) we built a platform where talented professionals could create a token for their careers and where supporters could invest in their careers, send DMs and unlock perks.

From November 2021 until March 2022 we launched +170 tokens, have a +10k user base and more than $220,000 invested in talent.

We’re slowly building a strong community that is helping us build Talent Protocol everyday.
