Content Creator

Content Creators amplify Kadena’s brand by educating the wider community about Kadena through informative collateral whether visual or audio.  Anyone who has been an active member of Kadena’s general community channel on Telegram or Discord for at least 1 month is eligible to apply as a Content Creator. Once selected by Kadena, Content Creator can submit proposed content ideas and we quickly assess it and notify you if it is acceptable.  A select few individuals that send us 2 - 3 pieces they have published in the past (Kadena related or not), as examples of the content they want to create, may be selected by Kadena for Enhanced status as Content Creator.  If you are selected for Enhanced status, you will receive increased compensation for your contributed content and may be more involved in the project’s decision-making process.

Basic Criteria for Assessing Content
  • Graphics, text, articles, blogs, how-to guides, audio, video and/or visual content (other ideas can be submitted on the application form) (each “KDA Content”)

  • Informs the public about the technical/social aspects of Kadena and KDA Tokens. Our  Quest Board of community-submitted content ideas might be fertile grounds for the type of questions or information our community is interested in learning.

  • Must be grammatically correct and in a language approved by Kadena.

  • Prominently mentions Kadena’s brand

  • Is up-to-date and is well presented

  • Information is not duplicative of or have material overlap with existing content

  2. After you have finished your work, you must submit a link to your content in the same google form for review by us.

  3. Once we reviewed your content for factual accuracy and approved that content, we will notify you in writing if it is accepted for publication by you including our assignment of a Tier rating.

  4. Publish your work and post links to it (if necessary).

FAQ

Does being a long time member of the Kadena community help by application?

 

We plan to give preference and priority to Ambassador applications submitted by individuals that are long serving members of our Discord or Telegram communities and/or their prior contributions to those communities.

When should I hear back about my application?

 

We expect to approve applications to be an Ambassador no later than a week after the application is submitted. Kadena has sole discretion in any selection as an Ambassador, determining if the Content Creators receive Enhanced status, approval of content ideas and the tier, and approval of the final KDA Content before publication.

 

Am I paid in KDA Tokens?

While compensation is described above by reference to U.S Dollar (“USD”), all compensation due an Ambassador will be paid solely in an equivalent amount of KDA Tokens. The number of KDA you receive for services or content in the prior month will be based on the market value of the KDA Tokens within not more than [48] hours of transfer of the KDA to you.  Kadena will determine the market value in good faith judgment and we expect to establish that value by reference to https://messari.io/asset/kadena.

When and how will I get paid?

 

Payment to our Ambassadors will be made no later than the 15th [jo1] day of the month for services or approved content published during the prior month.  Payment will be made by transfer of KDA to the account that corresponds to the public key that you provide to us in writing.

Each Ambassador is responsible for payment of and all applicable taxes related to their services and contributed content.  Kadena will not do any withholding or payment with respect to an Ambassador’s tax obligation.

You have no right to incur any obligation on Kadena’s behalf.  You can terminate your status as an Ambassador at any time and for any reason. Similarly, your appointment as an Ambassador can be revoked, suspended or conditioned by Kadena at any time and for any reason.

 

How can content that I publish or post be used?

 

Once published, your content can be used or referenced by anyone for any purpose.  In particular, by acting as an Ambassador you are granting to Kadena the non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide right and license, without restriction or limitation, to publish, broadcast, and otherwise use and distribute, any and all content or portion thereof that you say, publish or post about Kadena, KDA or the Kadena blockchain platform in any all printed, audio, visual, electronic mixed media or other formats.
