Welcome to Innovative Use Digest #5, wherein we look at creators offering interesting use cases for their Creator Coins. (Digest #4 is here.)
This week I’m zooming in on Jeff Pulver and $JEFF coin. Jeff is a self-described “internet pioneer” who was instrumental in bringing Voice over IP (VoIP) to the masses through companies like Vonage. Jeff has used his tech industry experience to invest in 400+ startups and be a strategic advisor to Fortune 100 companies.
Let’s take a look at how Jeff is building an ecosystem through a multi-layered approach to using $JEFF coin to support his content and community.
Sponsor his content + tip the band!
Jeff hosts four weekly shows/events via Zoom — “The Creator Economy,” “Jeff’s Place,” and 2x “Zula” networking events — which fans can sponsor via $JEFF that includes a shoutout of whatever you want him to promote. For his Thursday show “Jeff”s Place,” any tips you SEND to him in $JEFF coin will be shared with the musical guests.
Offering $JEFF to support friends’ endeavors
Astrology: You can use $JEFF to pay for Astrological services from Michelle Marie. Michelle offers a number of services all with a link to purchase directly in $JEFF.
Wine: You can get a 10% discount on wines from JEZREEL Winery by making your purchase in $JEFF coin.
Advice and networking
Given his years of business experience, Jeff offers startup pitch/deck advice via $JEFF. He will also soon offer an opportunity to attend a creativity focused camp in Turks & Caicos called “Camp Jeff 2021.”
On July 15, Jeff will be leading a fundraising effort for WhyHunger, a non-profit organization working to end hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious, affordable food and by supporting grassroots solutions that inspire self-reliance and community empowerment.
From Jeff: “For the July 15th charity fundraiser, where I am celebrating the Life and Music of Harry Chapin, WhyHunger.org is accepting donations from all Rally creators. So far 7 creators have agreed to donate a portion of their weekly $RLY rewards earned to WhyHunger.
The event takes place July 15 from 2 – 5 PM (Eastern). I would love for the entire Rally community to join the event! Free Tickets: tinyurl.com/harry2021“
