Recently, the COTI Foundation launched one of the largest privacy-related growth funds in the Ethereum ecosystem.

Named the ABC Growth Fund, the COTI Foundation has allocated about $50M worth of $COTI tokens for Ambassadors, Builders, and Creators to help bring real-world privacy solutions to the masses.

Following the launch of our Builders program, we’re now rolling out the Creators program!

This program is for those in the COTI community who would like to contribute to the growth of the COTI ecosystem through content creation and community building.

Read on for details on how to participate.

What is the COTI Creators program?

The Creators program incentivizes the growth of the COTI community through high-impact content creation.

Both individuals and entities can apply for grants consisting of COTI tokens to fund your content creation activities.

You can find more details on the allocated COTI tokens per content type on this page here.

The type of content we’re looking for to be created consists of, but is not limited to:

  • Explainer Videos: Create whiteboard videos, educational videos, tutorial videos of how to build on top of the COTI V2 developer network, and more.
  • Short-form Videos: Create short videos about COTI to be shared on YouTube, X, TikTok and other social media platforms.
  • Newsletters: Create and distribute an unofficial COTI newsletter covering the latest developments in the COTI ecosystem.
  • Articles: Write articles about industry comparisons, tutorials, use cases, deep dives into privacy in Web3, and COTI’s role in Web3 privacy, etc.
  • Infographics: Design infographics to visually explain COTI’s tech stack, ecosystem, use-cases or any other initiative or idea you may have.
  • COTI Content Aggregator — Manage and promote a dedicated platform or account that aggregates and highlights existing content about COTI.
  • Discord and Telegram Bots: Create and deploy bots useful to the COTI community, such as bots dedicated to share data and information about COTI, or to increase engagement in the COTI community.
  • Podcast: Host a podcast series discussing blockchain privacy trends, featuring interviews with experts and COTI team members.
  • Translation and Localization: Translate COTI’s materials (such as white paper, decks, etc) into languages such as Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, and more. Produce non-English explainer videos, provide voice overs for existing videos, and more.
  • Research: Conduct academic and non-academic research on COTI’s technology and use cases.

We highly encourage those with a high follower count and access to large distribution channels to apply. We’re also allocating a bonus to creators whose content becomes popular and receives high engagement as described here. You’ll easily spot these special tasks on Notion with a distinctive marking.

These are just a couple examples, your creativity is the limit! You can see more examples on this page.

Criteria of the COTI Creators Program

To judge each application, there will be a committee composed of team and community members.

At a high level we’ll be judging each submission according to accuracy and creativity. But as is the case with content, a lot will be subjective, specific to the content type, and judged on a case by case basis.

But here are a couple tips when making COTI content you should take into account:

  • Be creative and original
  • Be accurate and informative
  • Don’t speculate on COTI token price
  • Always use high visual and audio quality
  • Respect intellectual property and copyright
  • Don’t create polarizing or offensive content

Finally, always include a disclaimer in your content:

“This content is for informational purposes only and does not constitute any kind of investment or other advice. You should make your own inquiries before purchasing any cryptocurrency or NFTs.”

We’re looking forward to seeing all your Creators program applications!

Stay COTI!
