Product Launch

Proposal overview

NFTY Labs is the parent company of SocialPass a suite of products and services dedicated to helping both new and existing NFT ecosystems provide utility functions for the NFTs in their communities.

SocialPass helps brands build interactive communities through custom software, turning NFTs into keys that unlock exclusive access, in-person events, rewards, and discounts.

The goal of the SocialPass is to help brands and creators establish new revenue streams while strengthening bonds with their customers, clients, or communities. The quickest way to mint, gate, and profit from your customers. Rather than a self-service brand portal, we may provide a white label solution for brands, creators, and communities, reducing the number of errors made during self-onboarding. We will provide white-label solutions for brands who want to use our ticket gating and social gating services.

SocialPass is a powerful tool that enables crypto and non-crypto native users to unlock new worlds with their NFTs. The following lists the features that SocialPass uses to accomplish this:

Wallet Management: Our platform has to be able to support a given blockchain on the user’s end. This requirement means wallet connection and verification, and potentially wallet creation must be supported on the frontend as well as backend.

Asset Verification: Once a wallet is verified, our platform must then be able to verify digital assets on a given blockchain. All blockchains vary somewhat in their implementation, but the end result is that asset verification requires backend integration with a given RPC provider or block explorer throughout our platform.

Asset Minting & Distribution: Coinciding with asset verification is asset minting and distribution. For this aspect of our platform, we must extend our wallet management service for the respective blockchain.

Frontend Integration: The above covers all the necessary backend technologies required for a chain integration. To round out the integration, we must incorporate the respective blockchain and its branding throughout our platform.

Testing & Support: We want to ensure a smooth experience for every user on a new blockchain integration. To do so, we require resources for a dedicated period of testing (automated & manual), as well as continued support, to ensure this happens.

Frontend SDK: SocialPass frontend development kit. This SDK will include a ‘TokenGate’ component, one that can be integrated into both our white-labeled solution, as well as used by 3rd party developers.

SocialPass is currently in the Pre-Revenue phase. While Harmony is not currently supported on SocialPass, the goal of this grant is to get funding to further build out our engineering team and complete the Harmony integration.

Unfortunately, your proposal is not ready for a Launch grant based on the guidelines at Apply for Grants or DAO due to the following reasons:

Applications of each launch must have prototyped a feature-full product. Harmony helps incubate these founding teams with product development, fundraising, and talent recruit. We recommend a $50K equity-free contribution each:

$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion)
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process)

We hope you continue to build on this concept and circle back when it is ready to be discussed further. Thank you for choosing Harmony.
