WAGMEET

Enabling Networking for Web 3 Communities

What is Wagmeet ?

Wagmeet is a B2B2C product that lets web3 native communities organise small events locally and incentivize attendance through the concept of physical  airdrops. Under the hood, these interactions are powered by smart contracts on the blockchain that distribute rewards based on the attendees involvement in the event and community.

Why now ?

In person meetups were incredibly instrumental in helping build my professional network. These meetups often helped hone my interpersonal skills and through the course of many of these events, I met future co founders and pivotal members, who would become a part of my ventures.

Covid unfortunately put a major dampener on these in-person meetups and, two years later, I am yet to find the zeal with which the events were organised earlier. Physical events are slowing regaining momentum but online communities have become the mainstay and are very viable alternative to meet and network with like minded individuals, through the safe confines of our homes.

When we started exploring the web3 landscape, a vital piece that contributes to the tenacity of a coin/ protocol is community adoption. A thriving interactive community can be the backbone for facilitating global collaboration and this is best facilitated through face to face interaction at physical meetups/ mixers. We want to bring back in- person meetups with a web3 flavor, so that  community members across the globe can have their own local
versions.

Community meetups should avoid typical web2 event ticketing services and explore opportunities by incorporating web3 elements like in-person airdrops, an idea among many with massive potential. On Chain activity will power the next major improvement in the world of event management technology and we want Wagmeet to be at the forefront.

For the uninitiated and newcomers to web3, WAGmeet will have some exciting digital interactions and experiences, propelling their entry into the web3 world. We’ve been funded by the NEAR Foundation to build this out.

Our USP

Usability is a major hurdle to overcome in the web3 space. We have built Wagmeet from the ground up to be intuitive, quick and familiar, all while taking giant leaps underneath the hood by harnessing the power of blockchain.

Incorporate elements of web3, offering a great port of entry for further exploration. In person
airdrops, trial utilty NFTs and community tokens and a play to earn engagement model.

An initial network of web3 event organisers in Bengaluru, Chennai and other Indian cities have are already onboard to try this out.

A few ideas

  • Ticket as an NFT
  • Ticket refunds - you get a refund if you attend event
  • Shared pot incentives - Organisers sets up a event reward that is distributed equally to everyone who attends

Our Process

A mobile first web app built with a react frontend and web3 architecture (NEAR based) for the backend. All progress will be documented on this blog in the coming months.

Future Potential

We want to partner with the global NEAR meets community to make WAGMeet the official event technology partner
