Grape Fitness & Wellness

The Grape community fitness & wellness channel has been going extremely well. We are fortunate enough in this community to have members who not only possess a wide range of knowledge and abilities but are also willing to share them.

The channel is open to anyone within the Grape community, regardless of your experience and fitness level.

In addition to the scheduled programs, community members also regularly share their personal workout routines, diet tips, and personal fitness philosophies.

Regardless of your goals, whether they be to relax and take a break from your crazy day or if you have been couped up inside for too long and need to lose (or gain!) a few extra pounds, there will be something for you!

So come and check out one of the delicious recipes posted by our fitness savvy members. Or join one of our scheduled classes and get a social fix at the same time!

— Full-body workout

  • A full-body workout is the most efficient way to burn calories and gain strength due to the variety of movements and exercises that are integrated into each session. They are an efficient way to keep your body burning fat for hours! Additionally, your cardiovascular endurance will increase as a result of your heart rate being elevated for a sustained amount of time.

— 10 Minute Ab Workout

  • Blast your core and abdominal muscles with this quick workout. Don’t be fooled by the short length though; based on the comments in our Discord, you will be feeling it the next day!

— 7 Day Movement Challenge

  • Have you been putting off working-out for a while and not sure where to start? This challenge requires no equipment and is designed to get your body moving in a sustainable and gradual way.

— Yoga

  • Take some time to get back in touch with your sense of self and your body with these yoga exercises and breathing techniques.

— Meditation

  • Quiet your internal noise, recalibrate, and switch off as you listen to one of the guided meditations lovingly curated by our community members.

Grape DAO

There has been a range of discussions in the Grape DAO, some of which have ended up in action being taken. For instance, we now have a team talk channel.

Right now, we are voting on the tokens which we would like to see our product integrations within the Solana ecosystem and the gated access behind it. Currently, COPE is a clear leader for obvious reasons, and we have been discussing how many COPE one should hold to have access to that channel.

There have been various other discussions which have resulted in action — such as users getting their own gated community to work behind. We now have a fitness community as well as a legal support channel from a registered and practicing lawyer.

Team Talk Highlights

The public team talks for OGs and verified wallets continues. Here are highlights of the last team talk:

  • Previous AMA was spoken about and the next AMA with Parrot. A gate for parrot might be launched as the DAO is voting for Parrot.
  • Gate will be getting a new update as LP holders will be able to access it without unstaking. Congrats to Grape for achieving this!
  • COPE, SOL, FTR, BOP and Parrot are the top 5 in the gate’s vote.
  • Grape will be working with FTR to build a trading channel.
  • Grape NFT marketplace has been built.
  • Videographer roles are open.
  • There are plans on events where you have to hold GRAPE to play or pay GRAPE to play, exploring the power of gate access.
  • The idea of the initial tokenomics is to give 2 million coins to the initial community.
  • Gate access will be able to support Ledger wallet.
  • $GRAPE will be used as a currency to bid on Grape’s NFT marketplace.
  • Things like the dollar value of the token rather than the number of tokens are being considered for retaining OG.
