Creators Can Fund Their Next Project With Apollo: Here’s How

Welcome to Apollo Crypto, the token that will activate a community. 

Like all great projects, Apollo Crypto began with a dream. We at Apollo know that creators make the world a better, more prosperous, more exciting place. Whether creating fine art, digital art, in the online sphere, or off, everyone deserves a shot at their dreams. Apollo is here so that creatives can get that shot through weekly contests in which token holders vote on an artist to win resources to fund their creative projects.

We are a community of dreamers, and we believe people should hold power. We are focused on building community, trust, and a simple DAO in which people can participate. Creators can apply to our contests weekly. If they don’t win, we encourage them to continue applying. At Apollo, our community is in charge. 

Here’s a detailed breakdown of how it works:

Creators
If you’re a creator, here is how you can use Apollo to fund your next project: 

  1. Create a decentralized finance (DeFi) wallet. 
    A DeFi wallet will store your cryptocurrency assets safely and securely because it requires a password equivalent to open and operate. 
  1. Connect your DeFi wallet to the Apollo DAO website. 
    You must connect your wallet to the Apollo DAO website via Wallet Connect and confirm you are in control of the wallet and consent to be nominated. If this is your first time entering an Apollo contest, you’ll need to register with the Apollo DAO website. Then you can nominate yourself for the creator contest.
  1. Your nomination will be written into the secure DAO database.
    Our process is protected and ensured through continuous checks and transparency. In addition to your nomination being written into the secure DAO database (IPFS), it will be written into the blockchain for additional security and auditing purposes.
  1. Share your unique nomination link.
    Now is when you spread the word. Share your unique nomination link with anyone you choose: fans, friends, and family. Using the link, they can vote for you and increase your chances of winning the competition and growing exposure for Apollo, ultimately benefiting any winnings. 

Voters
If you know a creator nominated for Apollo’s weekly creator contest, here’s how you can vote:

  1. Create a decentralized finance (DeFi) wallet. 
    You must also own Apollo in a decentralized finance (DeFi) wallet, which will keep your assets safe and secure. 
  1. Connect your DeFi wallet to the Apollo DAO website. 
    You must connect your wallet to the Apollo DAO website via Wallet Connect and confirm that the wallet is in your control and will be voting. 
  1. Discover.
    You can discover weekly nominees either through creator promotions or the Apollo DAO website, which will provide an updated list of the nominated creators for your review. 
  1. Vote.
    You can vote via the blockchain directly (this method requires a gas fee) or a signed message to IPFS (no gas fee required). 
  1. Review.
    You may use the Apollo DAO site to view the leaderboard, the time remaining in the current contest cycle, and the existing prize pool.

Results

  1. Summary posted on DAO.
    Once the voting has ended, the Apollo DAO Database will post a complete summary of the contest cycle results to IPFS. This summary will include all nominees, all voters, and the IPFS hash of the vote. The results will be written into the blockchain and have a pointer to the IPFS for a more detailed breakdown of the voting information. 
  1. Prize calculated.
    The DAO contract calculates the dev donation based on the number of winning votes for the cycle and the current size of the Creator Prize Fund. The creator can then withdraw their winnings.
  1. Repeat.
    We will update the contest results on the website, and the next voting cycle will begin.

As you can see, our assets and approach are different. Our token is truly community-driven and gives power to the people via true decentralization.
