Nxt Foundation Supporter Program
March 12, 2017, 11:41:51 pm

Nxt Foundation Supporter Program




Thanks for all the support and feedback  that you've given to our previous announcement. We would have liked to make this announcement sooner, but we are still working on finalizing the benefits of being an individual supporter.  This still isn't quite ready as we need to clear one thing with a 3rd party vendor. However, we decided to make this announcement now to keep things moving. All benefits from the supporter program will kick in on or before the first of April.

The Supporter Program has been created as both a means of raising funds for the Foundation and to strengthen the community bond.

There will initially be 2 main forms of support through this program:


Organizational Supporters

This category is targeted towards large businesses and organizations that wish to support the Nxt Foundation. This starts with EUR 2500 donated on a yearly basis with tiers for every additional 2500 donated. However, the difference in benefits, for now, only amounts to the position of the donor on the Supporter page. This can change in the future, however, as we formalize the additional services that we provide outside of what we currently provide for free. Supporters can change tiers at any time at a pro-rated amount for the remaining months in their benefit period.


Benefits
•   Featured logo under the respective tier
•   Logo links to a dedicated page on the Foundation website with text and images provided by the organization (max 750 words and by approval)
•   Permission to call themselves an official supporter of the Foundation anywhere
•   Public acknowledgement of support provided by the Foundation where necessary



I'm happy to announce that even before this announcement, we already have our first supporter with Janus donating an effective amount of EUR 2500 in Janus tokens as well as a very generous donation of working time  by their developer Lobos to provide much-needed support and maintenance for MyNxt.info. Janus has been a very valuable addition to the community since they joined late last year and we look forward to seeing what they will do with Nxt and Ardor technology.


Annual Supporters

This category is for both community members and projects that wish to support the Nxt Foundation in its activities and is subdivided into two tiers: Supporter and Supporter+.  People are welcome to contribute more than the tier amounts and will be carried over to subsequent years, but the benefits and donation levels may change after the first year. A Supporter may also choose to become Supporter+ by adding their contribution prorated for the remaining months of their benefit period. Additional benefits are also being looked into and will be introduced as the year progresses. We already have some planned but don't want to announce them until they are concrete. There will be no additional donation required to avail of these additional benefits when they are introduced for their respective tier.


Supporter: EUR 50/year
•   Name or Username on the Supporter Page
•   Permission to call themselves an official supporter of the Foundation anywhere

Supporter+: EUR 100/year
•   All Supporter benefits
•   Choice between a personalized @nxtcommunity.io email or @ardorcommunity.io email (further details, such as mailbox capacity, to be provided before the end of the month)
•   Hyperlinked name/username to a Nxtforum, Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, Bitcointalk, or Facebook profile or personal/project website (by approval)
•   Nxt and Ardor stickers


We will be using EUR as the underlying currency for donations as that is what most of our bills are in, such as web-related fees, office space rental, and travel expenses for meeting prospective business users as well as event attendance. However, we will be accepting these contributions in NXT, ARDR, and BTC, in addition to EUR itself. We will compute the donation at the effective BTC price stated on cryptocompare.com and then compute the EUR price stated for that BTC on the same website. Most BTC contributions will be processed directly on BitPay. However, we will hold on to some of the cryptocurrencies donated instead of converting them as some payments, such as tips and bounties, are done so with those coins.

Supporter benefits are valid for a year and will kick in on the first of every month. So, for example, if you contribute EUR 50 on April 25th, your supporter status will not kick in until the 1st of May and will last for a year after that. An exception to this rule is this month where supporter status (but not all benefits) will kick in this week when I complete the Supporter page on our website.


Note About TNSEE

As mentioned in the announcement last week, a permanent section of the Supporters Page will be dedicated to the TNSSE fundraising participants. However, while a list of all accounts that participated will not be listed, links to appropriate places, like the announcement thread and the current TNSSE holding account, will be posted together with some words thanking the initial contributors.


Disclaimer

Supporter status does NOT indicate an endorsement by the Foundation and benefits can be revoked in cases of abuse or for other reasons via majority vote by the Foundation. No refund will be provided in these cases. However, in cases when the Foundation refuses to grant part of or all of the benefits at the time of the donation, this can be refunded with the donor bearing the costs of the transaction fee if so desired.

All links will be compliant with Google's Webmaster Guidelines.



Thank you once again for all the support that you have given us thus far!


Edit:If you would like to be a supporter, please send me a private message here, on Slack, or to travin@nxtfoundation.io, with your desired amount to contribute, your preferred method (choose one randomly if any are ok), and other relevant details to your desired tier. I will be making something a bit more automated when I get the Supporter Page up. :)

We're happy to announce that we now have a second organizational supporter!



Sigwo has been a great member of the community and we are very grateful for his generous donation and support. We also look forward to seeing what he does with Jupiter, a modified version of Nxt purchased by his company from Jelurida.

Thanks for the support everyone! I'll hopefully make it easy to donate when I have the Supporter Page up this week and when I finalize things with the email service provider.

However, if you want to make the donation now, you're able to do so :). Please send me a private message here, on Slack, or to travin@nxtfoundation.io, with your desired amount to contribute, your preferred method (choose one randomly if any are ok), and other relevant details to your desired tier.

In my view, anyone holding a large sum of NXT should participate in this program and contribute something.
The NXT foundation is doing a wonderful job in promoting NXT, I mean think where we were the same time last year and where we are now.
