The Hive FPL project is off to a decent start. Since the first publication, we have gotten decent responses, with the discord group constantly growing.
I have reached out to different managers of various FPL leagues to bring even more players into the community. Interestingly, these are players that are all not members of Hive, what this means in essence is that this project is going to morph into an onboarding campaign of sorts.
At the time of writing, I have already secured a decent number of qualified leads and these are individuals that are already established FPL players and will most likely be joining Hive as well.
One of the managers I spoke with also stated that the league's marketing will kick off in earnest when details about the coming FPL season have kicked off. Until then, he has just been dropping hints about it on the Whatsapp channel of 66 certified FPL players.
Tell your friends
On top of that, I have also been reaching out to my friends and using this opportunity to shill Hive, if you may. I believe that at the end of the day, this project will eventually turn into a massive onboarding project for the Hive community.
While it is still in the early stages of development, we encourage people to tell their friends and family members about this project. Our target audience is anybody with an interest in FPL and according to recent data, it is anywhere between 100-200 million people worldwide.
A big part of our responsibility to our sponsors is to ensure that the project is constantly growing and adds value to the community at large.
What we want is to grow the project and eventually become a subcommunity thriving within the Sportstalk community.
The project is still seeking more sponsors to help us bolster the prize pool for participants. The more sponsors we can get, the bigger the prize pool.
At the time of writing, we have been able to secure generous support the OCD project. Through @acidyo, we know that the prize pool is going to be bolstered through upvotes that will be contributed to the prize pool.
We're currently in a positive conversation with the hierarchy of @sportstalksocial and I think it is looking very exciting. NFTs and Sports tokens will most likely be introduced as part of the reward.
I have also reached out to Rabona through my personal(@belemo) Twitter account but haven't gotten any response yet.
We're looking out for more sponsors and one thing for sure is that we will ensure the project is run transparently and fairly.
The previous Twitter account of the FPL Hive project was permanently suspended by Twitter due to some confusion. The Twitter bots believed that the account was behaving suspiciously similar to my own personal account, so we had to create a new one.
If you had already followed the previous account, sorry about the confusion. Here is a link to the new one, please give it a follow. The new account will be handled completely differently and I believe there will not be any issue.
Since we don't have any lump sum for the reward pool, we're going to be generating income through our publications. Earnings from the publication will then be kept aside for the grandprize at the end of the season.
OCD has indicated to support the project through upvoting of our publications and so that means we will have a constantly growing prize pool. Here's how we intend to reward participants
- 50% of the reward from every publication will be liquidated and kept aside for the grand prize, at the end of the season
- 40% of the reward for every publication will be assigned to the author of the post
- 9% of the reward for every publication will be assigned to the best 3-5 teams of the week
- 1% of the reward will be left in the Official Hive FPL account
- Sportstalk NFTs will also be part of the reward system. We're still in discussion and it is looking very exciting. More details will be released very soon.
Since the season hasn't started yet, the 9% meant for top teams of the week will be used to power up the Hive FPL account while the HBD will be accumulated towards the grand prize. However, when the season starts, we'll revert to the schedule above. Further changes will be relayed to the community.
After working out the maths, will have a sportstalksocial proposal up and running in the coming days. The proceeds will of course be redirected towards the prize pool.
