Everyday projects are being launched, but product creators don’t have an easy means to reward their supporter base.
Shape can help you generate loyalty and support for your product or business (using tokens issued on the Stellar blockchain).
Anyone can use Shape - whether you’re a blockchain startup or launching a corner store selling party costumes. People love supporting their favorite brands!
How it works
Shape is a tool that brings your community closer to the development stages of your product or business. With Shape you can launch campaigns and reward users for actions like signing up, referring a friend, reporting a bug etc. Shape allows companies to reward users with a custom token issued on the Stellar blockchain that they can use to buy and trade items.
What can I use tokens for?
Users have a wallet to store tokens, which they can use to buy items listed by the company on the marketplace. The items can be anything from a t-shirts, an online voucher, or exclusive access to products or content.
How does a campaign work?
Campaigns can be designed to grow your user base, collect user information, hire new employees, etc.
Campaigns run for a specified time and companies can run multiple campaigns depending on how they would like to reward their user base.
The main feature Shape is going to be using is the creation and issuing of custom assets on the Stellar blockchain.
The first version of Shape have the following features:
- Add users
- Launch and configure campaigns
- List perks for purchase
- Custom landing page and wallet
- Buy perks (user)
- Redeem rewards (user)
- Project status
Core app is open sourced (https://github.com/rehive/service-launcher-dashboard) and developed in React. In addition the app allows you to create a landing page and wallet for users that is customizable and easy to use.
Shape is developed on Rehive Platform for fintech apps. We decided to use Rehive as it is a centralised solution that does not require users to manage their own private keys. Further, users don’t have to deposit 20 XLM to create a Stellar blockchain account.
In addition Shape relies on Rehive’s open source Stellar Service for setting up a federation server, creating addresses, monitoring addresses, issuing Stellar tokens and transacting with the Stellar blockchain.
Stephan and Taariq are working on the Shape project. We’ve recently joined the Rehive Team. Let us know if you have any questions and if you’re planning to launch project soon!
