The European Blockchain Association XSC Reward System – Combining Intrinsic With Extrinsic Motivation

The European Blockchain Association – as a decentralised semi-autonomous organisation – relies on the active participation of its members. Beside acknowledging the intrinsic motivation of each EBA member to actively add value to the ecosystem, the EBA supports and rewards useful community activities by distributing crypto currency CrowdstartCoin XSC.

CrowdstartCoin XSC is an ERC20 crypto currency that was created in 2017 by Crowdstart Capital CSC in order to reward developers who add valuable code to the blockchain ecosystem. During the launch of the European Blockchain Association, CSC decided to donate 40% of its total XSC supply to the EBA.

EBA will provide each new member at the successful membership application with the same amount of (free) CrowdstartCoins XSC. In the first phase, each new member will receive 2.000 XSC.

The EBA uses CrowdstartCoin XSC for two purposes: first, XSC will be rewarded to EBA members that add value to the EBA community, and second, XSC will serve as the internal currency for the exchange of goods and services within the EBA community. Please see below the first version of the EBA benefits catalogue with the respective amounts of XSC per benefit and per year. Each member may make use of her CrowdstartCoin XSC to pay for the respective benefit provided by the EBA.

Welcome Startup Accelerator Crowdstart Capital And Crowdstart Coin XSC!

Today, we welcome Crowdstart Capital as a new member of the European Blockchain Association! Crowdstart Capital, or CSC, will take over the EBA accelerator node with the mission to promote blockchain-based startups throughout Europe.

As part of the deal, CSC will bring 40% of the total amount of their Crowdstart Coin XSC crypto currency. XSC has been around for some time in the crypto space. It has been distributed by CSC for free to reward developers and engineers for adding valuable code to the blockchain community. You can read more about the CSC story here.

We at the EBA will distribute XSC to our members – as a starter when they actually become members, and throughout their membership for activities and assets they add to the blockchain community. We are in the process of defining specific activities and will publish a list of these, later on. Our goal is to use XSC as the EBA’s currency, or the financial lubricant that facilitates the EBA incentive scheme. 

It’s an experiment and we can’t guarantee that it will work out as expected. We probably will have to adapt the scheme now and then, and we are open for suggestions for improvement. Feel free to contact us and discuss the Crowdstart Coin XSC with us!
