"If you build it, they will come"
Field of Dreams, 1989
Currently, there is a wide gap between talented developers/creators and efficient community builders. This gap can leave good ideas lost in a crowd of slick marketing and established communities. Platforms is a group of hardworking community builders. We curate and build a community while project owners focus on their platform.
Benefits of Community Building
Traditional advertising simply brings users to products. In the constantly evolving and public world of blockchains, this results in a high and constant spend to maintain engagement.
Building a community creates a team of supporters for the platform. Instead of simply using a platform, communities engage with new comers, share information about the platform, and actively recruit newcomers.
The end result is organic, sustainable, grassroots growth. By feeling welcomed and heard, communities boisterously support their platforms with constant feedback and promotion.
Building communities is vastly superior to simply attracting customers.
What Platforms Provides
- Community creation and growth
- Talent recruitment from within the community
- Project launches
Our tried and true methods of community building enables creators to create instead of building communities. Through open engagement, talent within the community is identified and promoted. By engaging Platforms pre-launch, it is possible for a project to have a vibrant, supportive community on launch day.
How Platforms Achieves
- SMT asset creation
- Graphic and website design
- Blog authoring and publishing
- Discord servers and active moderators
- Giveaways and contests
Platforms will initially provide these functions directly with a goal of turning management over to the project owner's strengthened community.
Cost of Using Platforms
Platforms' revenue and profits will be made from an early stake in other platforms/services/people. This dramatically reduces the need for upfront expenses from project owners and ties the success of Platforms to the success of projects. There will be different pricing models for you to "buy in" on what Platforms offers.
- Fee Based - An agreed upon amount - you get a Discord set-up / built community (people will go to your discord), contests and giveaways (with prizes for your own asset or Platforms' asset)
- Stake Based - You buy our asset Platform Token (% to be agreed on) , or you have your own asset that you give us, or we can make the asset for you and give us an early stake.
The goal is to allow you to focus on your platform and not worry about a community to be built around it. Platforms does this for you.

Platforms Earnings And How We Distribute Earnings
How We Make Money
How We Make Money
We make money when we undertake projects to build a community and find workers. We also gain from upvotes on our posts that are shared on the Steem blockchain.
We share this income with the token holders and with others depending on their level of involvement.
This is the biggest avenue to receive payments from us. If you are a token holder, you will get paid
- 40 % of what we make when we take on projects
- 10 % of the Steem dollars earned from posts on the Steem blockchain
- All payments for Investors will be done in STEEM at the end of the month except for token payments, which will be done on Bitshares.

Where do PLATFORMS come from?
Platforms will issue a maximum of 10,000 PLATFORMS each month.
Our goal is to dedicate 5,000 PLATFORMS per month for giveaways, pay leadership 400 PLATFORMS each per month, and pay discord moderators 200 PLATFORMS each per month. At the current amount of leaders and moderators, we will be issuing 7,200 PLATFORMS a month.
Because the platforms bitshares account currently holds more than 50,000 PLATFORMS, we won't be issuing any more platforms for the next 5 months.
If @platforms needs to raise funds, we will sell the unissued platforms of the month. For example, if we needs to raise funds, to calculate how many can be sold we use this formula: 10,000 - (TOTAL PLATFORMS ISSUED IN THE MONTH) = Amount to be sold.
If Platforms has need for more than 10,000 tokens in the month, additional tokens will be purchased on the market. Existing sell orders will have priority and be filled first. If there are no existing sell orders, a higher buy offer will be submitted.
How can I buy PLATFORMS tokens?
PLATFORMS are a user issued asset on the bitshares dex. They can be found here: https://wallet.bitshares.org/#/market/PLATFORMS_BTS.
