MVV Voting on TokenLog

The TEC continues to evolve at a breakneck pace. As mentioned in our last Praise Quant Blog Post, we are hosting a second iteration of the Mission, Vision, and Value statement development process. The importance of this process cannot be overstated as this is the first time (we know of) that the mission, vision, and values of a DAO are being proposed and decided upon by the community, before its launch. The juicy details are below, but long story short 👉 VOTE on the TEC MVVs now TokenLog

While we are mostly heads down and noses to the proverbial grindstone in preparation for our upcoming TE Commons Hatch, we couldn’t help but notice all the NFT hubub. Beeple, Christie’s, 5000 Days, $69 million — NFT WTF!?!?!

So what the heck is non-fungibility and how does it relate to the TEC? For conversation sake, let’s simplify the definition of non-fungible to unique, not interchangeable. The TE Commons is both unique & not interchangeable. Combining our Cultural Build with an innovative, open-source Technical Stack, our approach focuses on sustainable and ethical design for Token Ecosystems built by Token Engineers. We…

Why we need a Token Engineering Commons

90’s TEC throwback: Why are we here? in a word cloud.

It’s been four months since the official kick off of the Token Engineering Commons (TEC). The community is blossoming and as we approach the launch of our token economy, we are aligning around our shared vision and mission — stewarding the cultivation of resources to accelerate the creation of robustly engineered models, modular tools, standards and educational opportunities that advance the field of token engineering in a regenerative way. In short — advancing token engineering.

Why Token Engineering?

Token Engineering is truly a transdisciplinary field, reflected by the amazing humans who are drawn to the Token Engineering Commons. We are engineers, scientists, researchers…

🗳 Vote to Launch in Two Phases

One of the biggest proposals and decisions that was made in the last two weeks, was whether or not to launch the TEC in one part or two. The Tech Spec working group and other contributors submitted a proposal to launch in two parts; instead of…
