Seed Club Hacks is a virtual hackathon in support of creators, communities and the social token economy. Today, communities serve platforms. Tomorrow, platforms will serve communities.
As social networks and web 2.0 platforms mature, the value that creators and communities generate online continues to grow. Yet most of this value doesn’t accrue to creators, instead it’s captured by the platform, or not valued at all. Creators are often locked into the platforms they publish on, and are at the mercy of monetization mechanisms that they have no say in or control over.
Social Tokens change this dynamic. They put the creator and the communities they lead back in control. They align incentives, giving contributors skin in the game and rewards for contributing to the growth of impact and value a community creates.
Seed Club Hacks is the first hackathon focused on creating tools to empower social token based projects. We’re searching for tools and platforms that will serve creators as they look to bring and grow their communities on the open web.
