Hey Pylon Community!
Cory here, from the Glow team. I know a lot of you want to know more about Glow Creators (soon to be rebranded into Pylon Creators ), so here’s your chance to see some of our exclusive screenshots from a working MVP DApp, currently operating on testnet. Many of these images haven’t been shared anywhere else! I’ll refer to everything as Glow Creators for now, so my words match the screenshots.
Glow Creators is a Web3 platform for celebrities, artists, influencers, KOLs, and content creators to further leverage their personal brands and communities by building a sustainable ecosystem of creator economies. Creators can team up with Glow to launch customized NFTs, no-loss pools, and eventually, social tokens.
Where Glow Creators differentiates itself from competitors is by 1) allowing for payments in fiat (credit card) or crypto ($UST), 2) letting creators sell customized NFTs with clear utility directly to their fans, and 3) adding no-loss forms of payment as patronage models.
For viewers and fans, they can support their favorite creators by purchasing NFT collections or donating into no-loss pools, which may unlock additional access, perks, and benefits.
The first screenshot shows an example of an NFT (for creator Amarna Miller), along with the payment method screen.
The next screenshot shows the payment tiers that creators can have for their NFTs. In this example, Amarna Miller has three NFT tiers or subscription levels, giving her fans several options based on what they can afford and/or the perks they want to unlock.
After choosing their subscription NFT tier, a fan can click on “Details” to learn more about extra benefits that come with their purchase. Below, you can see all the perks of buying one of Amarna’s Business Passes!
Below is another example of custom artist NFTs. As you can see, they are very different from the previous example.
What you can’t see from these screenshots is that every NFT — at least the ones in these examples — will have an element of animation and movement to them (see an example here). In other words, these NFTs themselves are aesthetically-pleasing on top of having exclusive-access utility.
On top of that, we are currently working on no-loss Creator Pools inspired by Pylon Pools on Pylon Gateway. With this feature, fans can deposit UST in a given Creator Pool in exchange for benefits, perks, and airdrops of subscription NFTs. The yield generated from the pools serves as recurring revenue streams for creators. After any designated terms/lockups (or none at all), users can retrieve their initial UST deposits without any payment of principal.
Simply put, think of this as an extension of Pylon Gateway where instead of crypto projects you’ll have creators from all kinds of verticals such as music, TikTok, streaming, and beyond.
As a sneak peek, we are additionally brainstorming other ways to integrate Pylon’s DP-token mechanism so as to potentially launch “social tokens” backed by stablecoins and yields.
Regarding all things MINE tokenomics-related, we’ll follow up with more information. Long story short, primary and secondary fees from the sales and trading of Creator NFTs will accrue back to the MINE token. Also, MINE governance stakers will have special access to these drops such as priority on whitelists, discounts, and airdrops.
So there you have it. Glow Creators!
