* For more details on how to earn and use ETX, check out "The Workings and Tokenomics of ETX"


ETX is provided when members interact with the community in one of a few different ways:

  • Creating guides and other long-form content

  • Engaging in interesting chats with other members

  • Getting views on content that you have created

  • Referring new users to the community

  • Working as a moderator

  • Checking the decisions that moderators make to ensure that they are correct


Creating Long-Form Tech Guides and Reviews (R1)

Within designated areas on the Emerging Technology platform users are rewarded for creating long-form content, such as guides and reviews, that conform to guidelines relating to quality and purpose.

Content rewarded in this way must be:

  • aligned with the description of acceptable content in each area.

  • original, both when compared to other content on the Emerging Technology platform, and elsewhere online.

  • created by a Junior Member or above (50+ posts)

  • have a minimum number of words (Project Reviews: 600 words, Guides: 1000 words, ETM Methods: 1200 words, Research Simplified: 1200 words)

  • within the daily limit for each area (Project Reviews: 10 max per day, Guides: 8 max per day, ETM Methods: 5 max per day, Research Simplified: 5 max per day)

This long-form content can be produced in the following areas:

  • All “Guides”, “ETM Methods”, “Project Reviews” and “Research Simplified” areas.

The rewards for this type of content are as follows:

  • Projects Reviews: 10 ETX per rewarded post

  • Guides: 20 ETX per rewarded post

  • ETM Methods: 30 ETX per rewarded post

  • Research Simplified: 40 ETX per rewarded post


Engaging with the Community in Positive and Productive Ways (R2)

Within designated areas on the Emerging Technology platform users are rewarded for creating discussion content, such as chats and answering questions, that conform to guidelines relating to quality and purpose.

Content rewarded in this way must be:

  • aligned with the description of acceptable content in each area.

  • original, both within other content in the Emerging Technology platform, and elsewhere online.

  • created by a Junior Member or above (50+ posts)

  • have a minimum number of words: 100 words

  • within the daily limit for all areas: 20 posts per day can receive R2 rewards

This discussion content can be produced in the following areas:

  • All “Chat” and “Questions” areas.

The rewards for this type of content are as follows:

  • 1 ETX per rewarded post.


Rewards for Content Views (R3)

Within designated areas on the Emerging Technology platform users are rewarded for the number of views from real users they get for posts they create.

The rewards for this type of content are as follows:

  • 10% of the total reward for content production (R1 and R2) each week is assigned as the reward for content views at the end of each week.

  • That 10% is then split proportionately between all qualifying content that receives at least 100 real unique visitors over the week.

  • The greater the number of unique visitors to a piece of content, the greater the percentage of the total 10% reward its author will receive.


Building the Exposure of the Emerging Technology Ecosystem (R4)

Users on the Emerging Technology platform are rewarded for referring new members who then go on to become active members of the community.

Referrals rewarded in this way must be:

  • The referral and sign up of new users that have never been a part of the community.

  • Only after the referred user has created 10 valuable posts that align with the provided guidelines.

  • Only after the referrer clicks the “Claim Reward” link in their “Your Referrals” section.

  • Only after a moderator has assessed the claim and approved a reward.

The rewards for referring new members are as follows:

  • 5 ETX per qualified referral


Moderating Content Production (R5)

Moderators on the Emerging Technology platform are rewarded for ensuring that high-quality member activities are rewarded.

Moderators receive a payment for the content and referral moderation where:

  • R5 rewards are calculated at the end of each week, at 9% of the total amount that is generated by all other rewards (R1-R4, R6), which is then split between all moderators according to the number of content moderations they have completed.

Moderators receive an automatic base payment where:

  • A base of 1% of the total amount generated by all other rewards will be equally dispersed amongst all moderators equally.


Checking Moderation Decisions (R6)

Any user that is a rank of Full Member or above is able to officially submit a moderation check, which is a request for the admins of the Emerging Technology platform to check a decision that was made by a moderator.

Users can participate in this process if:

  • They rank at Full Member or above.

  • An amount of ETX equaling the total value of the reward for the decision in question is staked in the user’s account first.

The results of this process are:

  • If the moderation check is deemed by Admin to be correct: the decision will be overturned, a notice will be given to the moderator in question, and a reward of 50% of the total value reward given for the item will be paid to the member that created the moderation check.

  • If the moderation check is deemed by Admin to be incorrect, within reason: the decision will be upheld, the moderator will be notified of this event, and the ETX staked by the member will then be unstaked.

  • If the moderation check is deemed by Admin to be grossly incorrect or is deemed to have malicious intent: the decision will be upheld, the moderator will be notified of the event, the ETX staked by the member will be confiscated and burned, further action may be taken.

This document is part of ongoing work, that will include the development of the systems mentioned here, as well as additions to and adaptations of this document in future revisions.
