My intention was to draft a proposal for the development and implementation of a gated-access program for onboarding new users to the storage application. However, as I began to create the draft, I realized a preliminary discussion could help with fleshing out the basic idea a little further.
I propose the implementation of a three-tier gated access program:
–Tier 1 (2Gb Storage) – NFT holder gated access users.
–Tier 2 (3Gb Storage) – “Stake-to-Access” (with minimum 1000 JKL stake) users.
–Tier 3 (6Gb Storage) – Combined NFT & “Stake-to-Access” users.
The program would eliminate the need for classic free tier offerings and mitigate some spam and abuse concerns inherent with free tier offers.
Key Per Tier Benefits:
NFT Tier - NFT offering can be launched in four waves (2500 tokens per wave = total 10,000 tokens). Users can access the Tier 1 account if their wallet holds the token. There is also an opportunity for related programs to incentivize user minting multiple tokens to share with others, increasing organic word-of-mouth and extended community use of service.
Stake-to-Access Tier – These users would have a dual benefit. They would have access to this storage tier, while also earning staking rewards. This will create a very stable base of users. These users may also add to their subscription for higher levels of storage if they wish.
Dual Tier (NFT/Stake-to-Access”) – This tier incentivizes users through the staking benefits as well as promotes their participation in the NFT “gifting” program(s).
I believe the current level of JKL in the community pool would make it inappropriate for proposal ask from that pool for this type of implementation. Instead, I thought it best to open a discussion to see what other options may be available. Moreover, I don’t believe the preliminary costs associated with creating this type of program (NFT generation, stake-to-access setup, labor, etc.) would be very high (est. ~$5K - ~$8K USD). However, until receiving some input from this community, I have paused any real deep-dive calculations of program costs for the time being.
Please let me know what you all think about the idea and offer any feedback on how we could get something like this started, if it sounded like something this community would support.
I look forward to hearing your feedback.
