[Announcement] Launch of the Tauchain Supporter Program
Dear Tau Community,
It’s a great pleasure for us to present to you the Tau Supporter Program. With the launch of the program, we finally have a way to directly reward your dedication and proactive support for our project. The program has been inspired by the Radvocate program of the Radix project, which showed great results. The expected launch date of the program is March 15th but you may already apply for the program if you like. Note that until launch, we might adjust certain aspects of the program based on feedback received.
The Tau Supporter Program
We have 800,000 AGRS (approximately $400,000 at current price leves) in total to give away, whereby up to 200,000 AGRS of the total will be available to win every three months. The rewards are going to be distributed among the top 100 supporters based on their aggregated points at the end of every three months.
The Tau Supporter program is your gateway to be rewarded for actively contributing to the success of Tau & Agoras and earning points by completing specific challenges.
Avariety of challenges (see “available challenges” sheet) are waiting for you to participate in.
For each completed challenge, you gain points and climb up theTau Supporter Leaderboard. At the end of every three month period, the top 100 point scorers convert their aggregated points into a fixed sum of AGRS, according to thePayout Structure:
The payout structure is based on points. Our rewards and your point score resets every 3 months. Within each three month period, earning less than 100 points wins you nothing. Earning 500 points or more wins you 2,000 AGRS. 400 points wins you 1,500 AGRS, 300 points wins you 800 AGRS, 200 points wins you 400 AGRS and reaching a minimum of 100 points wins you 200 AGRS. But remember, you need to be in the top 100 point scorers to convert your points to AGRS. Earning above 500 points will not increase your rewards based on the Payout Structure, but ranking within the top three of the leaderboard wins you even larger prizes as part of theSpecial Awards:
In addition to the 200,000 AGRS available every three months,the top three point scorers on the leaderboard will receiveSpecial Awards, meaning theywin extra AGRS on top of their regular payout. If there’s a tie in points among the top Tau Supporters, we reserve the right to pick a winner based on the overall quality and traction of the supporter’s results. The Special Awards are as follows:
Ranking third place in the leaderboard wins you 2,000 extra AGRS. Ranking second place wins you 5,000 extra AGRS and ranking first on the leaderboard wins you 10,000 AGRS. Note that that in order to qualify for the Special Awards, you’ll need to at least aggregate 500 points over the course of the three months program.

How to accumulate as many points as possible:
Points are heavily based upon the traction that your effort produces (see Traction Points). To accumulate as many points as possible, you need to focus on your results being as positively beneficial to the project as possible.
You may complete the same challenge as many times as you wish. You earn points in two key areas:
For each completed challenge you receive Base Points. To receive Base Points, make sure that you have followed the rules of the challenge, as not adhering to them may invalidate your results. The Base Points form the smaller portion of the total points you can earn by completing a challenge.
Traction Points are where you can really boost your point score. They make up the larger portion of points that you can accumulate for completing challenges. They are awarded based on the traction of your results.
Now what is Traction? Traction is nothing more than evidence of success. Success can be defined in a lot of different ways but generally speaking, it is the scale of beneficial impact that your result has had on the project.
Example: If you complete the “Write an article” challenge, and you write an article getting very little or negative attention, that’sno traction. In contrast, if your article gets positive feedback, gets shared by many people and is being cited in a major news outlet, that’s great traction. If you wantto rank high,make sure your resultsget a lot of traction. We judge the traction of your work based on your documentation (see below).
The main aspect for us to evaluate your results is documentation of your work. Once you apply to become a Tau Supporter, we’ll provide you with your personal work environment to demonstrate your results. Please be as specific as possible in outlining the results of your work within your personal work environment, as this is the main criteria for evaluating your results and thus awarding you with points.
Please also make sure to steadily update your personal work environment with your content so that we can keep track of your progress. Every week, we are updating the Leaderboard with the current status of the Tau Supporters.
So which challenges are there to complete and how many points can you gain from them? You can find the link to all of the available challenges in the description, it’s on the second tab of the leaderboard sheet.
Here’s a quick overview. For a more thorough explanation of the challenges and their rules, please refer to the “
