Inspired by Seinfeld Episode, "The Contest," Commit Club Launches on Ethereum - Creators Hope for a Big Release
Commit Club lets you commit to challenges by staking Ether and getting Ether when others fail
By: Commit Club
With its novel "Loser Pool" and "Proof of Trusted Witness," Commit Club aims to reduce mediocrity through uniquely incentivized challenges and habits.
Health and wellness is already increasing in popularity within Web3 communities. Just this year, Solana running app, STEPN, funded by Sequoia, launched their GMT token and hit a market cap of 2 billion USD in only one-and-a-half months.
Commit Club has a different take.
Its "Loser Pool" algorithm proportionally rewards successful committers on the platform with Ether from unsuccessful committers. Additionally, Commit Club gives brands a tasteful way to enter Web3 with relevant challenges, charity integrations, and branded NFT rewards.
The "Loser Pool" is how a group of friends could pool their money and give it to whoever is "master of their domain." The "Loser Pool'' is also how charities are rewarded in partner challenges.
Commit Club's "Proof of Trusted Witness," on the other hand, verifies user actions through a blockchain API connected to 3rd party oracles. Oracles in niches like edtech, fitness, and even business can take center stage.
"With Proof of Trusted Witness, challenge designers will be able to issue rewards in B2C, but also B2B," the company's CEO, Edward Sturm, said. "A Salesforce integration, for example, could automatically reward employees with DAO shares for hitting quotas."
"Proof of Trusted Witness" also allows Commit Club to serve as a trusted authority on established records and achievements - a blockchain version of Guinness World Records.
Currently Commit Club provides free and staked challenges, a global "Loser Pool," Web2 access through email, and partner challenges with accompanying branded NFT rewards. "Proof of Trusted Witness" is predicted to go live in a few months.
Following "Proof of Trusted Witness," Commit Club will initiate an intense decentralization program. Challenges will become smart contracts and the platform will be turned into a DAO, making it the first publicly owned commitment device.
Commit Club is not the team's initial foray into Web3. Edward Sturm previously co-founded the first play-to-earn game in crypto, World of Ether, while running the biggest blockchain meetup in the world. He now hopes to usher in an era of "verbs-to-earn"
Leon Grapenthin, the company's CTO, has extensive blockchain experience and trains developers at FAANG companies. He's in the top 5% of Stack Overflow and is passionate about productivity tools.
The company's Head of Product, Alexander Vilinskyy, is Lead Product Designer at Grammarly, SparkMail, and Readdle.
Commit Club's beta began January 12, 2022. Today marks its official launch.
