The EBA Reward System -Bringing intrinsic and extrinsic motivation together
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 through the use of the crypto currency CrowdstartCoin XSC.
CrowdstartCoin XSC is an ethereum token that was created in 2017 by Crowdstart Capital CSC in order to reward developers who add valuable code to the blockchain ecosystem. So far over 13,000 individuals have been rewarded with XSC. During the launch of the European Blockchain Association, CSC decided to donate 40% of its total XSC supply to the EBA which now administers a number of tenders through which community members can earn XSC by contributing to the ecosystem.
As an association registered in Germany, the EBA is a non-profit organisation. It requires its members to pay membership fees. These fees have two purposes. The first is to cover basic costs associated with keeping the organisation up and running (server costs, marketing, travel etc). The second purpose of the membership fee is to create a pool of EBA assets which can be leveraged to offer discounted member services.
The EBA offers various membership packages, designed for the specific needs of the respective member – be it a corporation, a consultancy, a scientific institution, a startup or an individual.
Fee Structure for Individuals:
Discounted Ecosystem Member Fee:
150 Euros + “Staking” 50 Euros worth of XSC
(*EBA Members who buy and hold the equivalent of 50 Euros worth of XSC for one year save 50 Euros in membership fees. Holding XSC in this manner reduces the circulating supply and thereby raises the value of the currency for all EBA members.)
Fee Structure for Organisations:
Corporation: 15-50 TEUR (depending on number of employees)
Consulting: 25 TEUR
Scientific Institution: 2.500 EUR
Startup: 2.500 EUR
