Five Ways in Five Days: How the Yang Dividend $MATH Is Helping the Yang Gang Five Days Since Launch
We officially launched the Yang Dividend Project on October 21st. Five days into launch and boy, has it been a whirlwind!
We wanted to take stock right away and evaluate whether we are meeting the goals we laid out for the project based on the initial reception. The main question is whether the Yang Dividend Project is helping popularize Andrew Yang and ideas related to his campaign, e.g. universal basic income.
We are glad to report that so far the project is delivering against the expectations and hopes we had for it. We have all been doing this pro-bono and it has been really exciting and heart-warming to see the positive reception. Below we list the five ways, in which we believe this social experiment has so far helped expand the Yang Gang.
1. Reaching the Crypto Community
We ran an airdrop (and currently have one running at Airdrop Bob) and the reception was just like an Andrew Yang rally. As of this writing, the token has been distributed to over 4,000 addresses and more than 5,000 transactions have been conducted! The airdrop asked participants to go to Yang2020.com/policies and certify they support at least one Yang policy. With this targeted approach toward the crypto community, we hope we reached some people that Andrew Yang’s team would not have been able to in their ordinary course of business.
2. United Nations of Yang
In the dawn of Yangdividend.com, it has seen visitors from 45 countries already! From large countries like United States and China, all the way to smaller ones like Bhutan. We have definitely taken this message global.
3. UBI: Unique Blogosphere Influence
We saw at least two articles / blog posts written about Yang Dividend (and by extension Andrew Yang’s candidacy). Glad to see we are not the only ones blogging about this :)
4. Proof of Yang
We have gotten about 50 submissions with #ProofOfYang already. We are still reviewing them, and have already started sending tokens to supporters.
As the below tweet from a fan suggests, people are already using MATH to connect with others and make political engagement more fun. Andrew Yang is not the only one who can have fun here. The Yang Gang can gamify anything. We are already imagining what it would be like if MATH becomes the glue that holds the Yang Gang together!
