VISION & VALUE
As the internet got older, it became layered with rules, restrictions, and public opinion that followed you everywhere. But when web3 was born, we saw the opportunity to be ourselves, to be free how we want to be. To create our own space for people like us.
We are the awesomeness of the internet. A community that isn’t afraid to defy the status quo and work together to explore the latest technology. We are sick of the system and ready to break it and create a new one on its ruins.
TED’s vision is to build the metaverse’s largest decentralized brand, community-built and community-owned.
- Keep it awesome
We are all different, and that is awesome. All those differences will make our community the greatest community in the metaverse. The #1 value of TED is and always will be the community and its interests. Everything starts and ends with the community.
- Awesome sh*t only
TED is a creative and voracious bear. As we all are. It’s easy to be a follower. It’s harder to be original and do awesome stuff We forge our own path.
- Trust the process
The best things are worth waiting for. Decentralized movements can’t make changes as quickly as centralized movements, which is a double-edged sword. Our movement has leaders, providing capacity and tools for the community to grow over time.
Into the Metaverse
2 Worlds combine
In a world that understands only polar relations, like good or bad, winner or loser, sad or happy, there is a planet where everyone is free to be who they want to be.
The planet is hidden and, at the same time, open for everyone.
If you are lucky enough to land on that planet, everything you do starts to become awesome.
There are no boundaries and no wardens. Only bears like you. Bears that want to live their lives by their own rules.
A prime collection of 9,999 bears will grant you access to The Planet, where we will build the best community there is together and surpass it into a real digital world.
Through meaningful member-only merch drops, outdoor campaigns, exclusive live events, and collaborations with indie businesses and world-renowned brands, we create a community-centric, globally recognized brand that is a force for good.
Let’s get awesome,
Full-time moderation team
TED wants every member of the community to always get an answer for their question or have someone to chat with. Mods will help protect and grow our community, the most valuable part of The TED Project. We’re planning to bring on a group of paid full-time and part-time mods. In an effort to professionalize community management in the NFT space. TED mods will have daily calls within the Community and Product teams, work set hours, take regular breaks, and spend time off-screen.
TED Grants initiative
Pssst, got something awesome? Calling all builders, artists, and creatives. The Project is full of talented human beans that want to use their skills and passion for TED to create additive things for the community. The TED Project will empower and provide grants to excellent members with great ideas through a grants program. We are working through the legal framework and application process.
From casual hangouts to heartfelt stories, we have seen community-run spaces sprout all over Twitter. These forums are important places to grow the connective tissue of our community. See you at the next Bear Cave Talks (Honey Pot Chat), or any of the other great spaces that are hosted by TED holders.
High value contributors appreciation
This would be the hardest challenge for us, as we know that TED has the greatest community there is. But we decided that we are going to appreciate everyone who will contribute to our community. Every month we are going to pick 10 people and say Thank You with unique NFTs or/and Tokens.
Into the Metaverse
The Metaverse today is where we currently spend most of our time: Discord + Twitter. How do we amplify this experience for TED members? How do we distribute the brand to places that have the most attention today? More importantly, where will the metaverse be one year+ from now?
While our illustrators are chewing their pencils, we are going to upload, sort and filter the collection.
Premium TED Fractionalization
One of our premium NFTs will be fractionalized using fractional.art into ERC-1155 tokens. These tokens will be used for governance over this NFT peace. Full details are coming.
Many will try to create one, but few teams have the experience and background to build a genuinely great game with mass market appeal and scalability. Though the core team has the experience, it’s a huge endeavor nonetheless. If we do it, we’ll do it right.
A token that could be used in the TED-verse.
Step one is to create a token to buy NFT.
With step two we will allow you to buy our merch and collectibles with TED token.
As we plan to create a game where people can interact with each other, a digital world, it’s logical to set a proper currency there.
Members of The Inner Circle can expect exclusive drops in perpetuity. First drop coming very soon.
Design phase has commenced…
Expanding Core Team
Our careers page will be live soon with additional open roles.
Meet-ups, exhibits, music festivals, and more give us the opportunity to expand our reach beyond a purely digital experience.
2 Worlds combine
The bridge between the physical and digital world presents a playground to create a new type of media. Here we will experiment with meta-games, interactive experiences, and unique ways to grow an IP. Riot Games has created an interesting playbook of expanding their IP through a show like Arcane. By allowing ownership in the characters themselves, TED along with the community is positioned to expand beyond this playbook.
Custom Verification Bot
Third party bots (e.g. Collabland) have limited features. Our custom bot allows us to own the end to end experience with more security.
Micro-actions and games played within the community in order to unlock new experiences.
An Interactive Brand
Imagine an RPG/Anime where the community owns their character(s) and the brand that they are helping build.
As the idea is any conception existing in the mind as a result of mental understanding, awareness, or activity, we are planning to have as much of all this as possible to cultivate a maximum number of awesome ideas. And we will start from:
We are always looking to collaborate with other brands who align with our vision and aesthetics. Right now we already have a couple of interesting brands that we may consider as partners. Details will be announced soon.
Experimentation with DAOs is one of the most exciting areas of crypto today. We must start small and explore various governance structures, reiterating on areas that need improvement, before moving onto bigger experiments. The regulatory framework for DAOs is also something that needs more research.
