What is Native

Native is an Ethereum-built platform that enables communities to generate their own unique token currencies and effectively manage their resources through collective decision-making tools. Native empowers communities to realize their inherent value in a global economy and unlock the power of the collective to generate widespread impact and prosperity.

How To Use Native Platform

Native Platform has successfully launched its Alpha platform on Mainnet giving users the ability to acquire Native Platform Tokens (NTV) in real-time and join any of the pilot communities on the platform.
All that one needs to get started on Native Platform is a Metamask wallet, some ETH and an interest in any of these founding communities. The Native Platform platform is currently compatible with the Brave and Cipher Browsers at this time. For a complete guide on getting started with the Alpha application, you can visit Native’s Quick Start Guide.

Native - Purpose

The purpose of Native is to enable others to launch unique community currencies with functional standards that include: memberships, transactions, and votes. Native’s governance features allow the Native token owners to guide community decisions, as well as fund and influence the policies of local derivative projects built on Native. All of the governance options on Native are delivered through simple templates so that any lack of technical knowledge on the user’s end does not interfere with their ability to execute their ideas.


Native was founded by Jake Vartanian. Jake is one of the very early cryptocurrency space influencers, as well as the founder of Cryptodex; the first advisory firm specializing in token launches.
Jake’s core experience has been in advising projects on the principles that generate healthy and prosperous cryptocurrency communities geared around meaningful and important projects. Jake’s perspective on the terms meaningful and important are a result of his vast travels throughout developed and emerging economies and communities. Jake’s roots in the cryptocurrency space come first and foremost from his decision to teach himself about financial markets; which inevitably revealed to him the faults of modern-day money. Jake was spurred further by Robert Swann (a community currency visionary) and Hakim Bey (a provoking counterculturist) in his understanding of the nature of value.

Jake’s inspiration for Native came from an insight he gained through his experience with yoga. Through yoga he understood that “attention, value and energy are actually the same thing.”
At Native, Jake and the team want to learn how people can be enabled to work on the things they legitimately care about. In doing so their attention will be maximized and in turn so will their energy and output. If the former proves to be correct, then the value of the participants in this new paradigm of online communities will also be maximized. [5]

First Communities

Native Launched with 6 Pilot Communities:

  • Earth Guardians is a Boulder, Colorado based non-profit that engages young people in programs to empower and amplify their voice, specifically around environmental justice.

  • Imaginal Films is a community of conscious film enthusiasts: filmmakers, viewers, and funders convened in one digital ecosystem to collectively develop, produce and distribute conscious films.

  • SDG Futures is a decentralized and distributed communities and technology stack for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • Peace Accelerators is a New-York-based non-profit that is committed to accelerating the spread of global peace by using a community-driven, tech-centric, and future-forward perspective to devise solutions that leverage emergent technologies for the betterment of humanity.

  • DOLO is a decentralized open learning organization working to iterate towards a future of smart education that is more open, agile, and rewarding for all stakeholders.

  • The Rick & Morty Crew is a collective of fans committed to embracing all things wubalubadubdub!

Using Native Platform

Discovering Communities

Find a community you’re interested in and support them through the purchase of their tokens. Once you’ve got the tokens, their value can be tracked, and your direct input will be assessed in the development of the community through your votes

Creating Communities

Decide what you want to build a community around. You can then sell tokens, their value can be tracked, and their direct input will be assessed in the development of the community through the member’s votes

Core Features

  • Unique Community Token: Each community that launches on Native has its own unique token to signify membership, create a community resource pool, and use as a medium of exchange within the community.
  • Polls: Members have the ability to vote on polls to contribute their feedback to the community.
    Projects: Members can decide on the projects the community pursues, giving them a voice in how the pool of resources is used.
  • Tasks: Members can complete important tasks in exchange for the communities tokens.

Native Use-Case

John is a huge fan of the animated series - Rick and Morty.

He wants to be a part of a community that shares his passion. He finds that there is a Rick & Morty community on the Native platform! He purchases tokens and joins this community.

Now John can be a part of the decision making process that the group pursues. Maybe they want to band together to contact the show and petition for a fan request? Maybe they want to make some t-shirts to commemorate their favorite series? Maybe they want to organize a meet-up event for all the community members?

The Native platform enables like minded people to create an economy and put their mental and financial resources together to pursue any cause which they find worthwhile!
