The Future of the Aergo Ambassador Program

We are taking our community building efforts to the next level and want you to be a part of it. Here’s an overview of the program we’ll be launching.

Back at the end of 2018, we ran the first round of our ambassador program: the RewarDrop. We had over 10,000 submissions, from over 60 countries and settled on 100 crypto ambassadors of a total 3,000 potential RewarDrop winners.

Overall, we would say it was a huge success and we are hugely grateful for all of the contributions. It played a critical role in forming our early community, and many of you who won a RewarDrop are still actively contributing to Aergo today. The one thing that many of you will have noticed however is the sole focus our RewarDrop had on the crypto community.

At the time, we had just completed our token sale: no Aergo tokens were circulating yet and our mainnet was about 6 months away from launch.

Since then, we’ve come a long way. Our mainnet is live! We’ve announced two game-changing products (i.e., Aergo Enterprise by Blocko & AergoLite), we’ve seen Blocko’s announcement of the migration of all its Coinstack customers over to Aergo Enterprise, and the Aergo token is now listed on multiple top exchanges globally.

“But what’s next?”

  1. The success of Aergo is (obviously) not defined totally by the crypto community. If developers do not build on our mainnet and if enterprises do not implement our solutions, then Aergo will not be successful long-term.
  2. Everyone on the Aergo team, the advisors, and the token purchasers did not get involved with Aergo to see it become another blockchain platform that resembles a ghost town. We are here for adoption and we have the connections and experience to bring adoption!

“That’s all easy to say, but how exactly do you plan to do this?”

In our last post “Do you speak Aergo?”, we explained a little about how our choice of tech stack gives us access to over 8 million developers overnight. This post will provide the next layer to that and in turn, be the launch of our second and more widespread ambassador program.

Enter: The Knights of Aergo

Within the Knights of Aergo, there will be different roles and different categories as we look to encompass both the crypto community and beyond. But what we do like the idea of is creating unity across these different areas, so two people working on very different things could meet and know they are both Knights of Aergo. “The crowd is more powerful than its constituent parts.”

Another important factor is that different members will help make up a council and each member will be able to have some influence on decisions or the direction of their role. This won’t just be another job for a crypto project. It will be something much deeper.

We’ll be releasing the exact specifics of each sub-role, rewards, tasks and anything else people need to know to apply, as we release each sub-role within the next few weeks. This is the kickoff and hopefully, it galvanises some of our community to start thinking about putting themselves forward to become a knight.

There will be three main categories of Knight for now and this may expand over time:

Crypto Ambassadors

Developer Enablers

Enterprise Champions


This is your first look at something we think is fundamental to the spread of Aergo. Having the Knights of Aergo will give us the ability to work with the best across every region globally and give us a wide variety of expertise. We believe as Knights, everybody has a much greater say and potential impact, independent people have a different outlook to employees. We want collaboration.

Our next post in the 419 series will showcase another major pillar of the Aergo ecosystem and we look forward to sharing more about it.

This post aims to inform our community on the program. We will open up the application process along for each category, with specifics on potential rewards, in the next couple of weeks and we will welcome your submissions.

“I’m an existing ambassador, what happens to me?”

Until then, watch this space!
