Introducing Jericho’s lore & community experience
A story and a better application, onboarding & member content experience.
Jericho is the land of web3 talent & builders. World-class web3 operators, freelancers & founders from projects such as YGG, Messari, and Optimism meet, learn, help each other & build together in Jericho.
Introducing our lore
My name is Moon.
I used to work as an independent scribe in Jericho, but was imprisoned by the Goblins when they took over.
One day, a teardrop-shaped light appeared on the floor of my cell. It moved toward the door, which jumped open. I followed the light, out of the prison and eventually to the Blue Gate. Crossing through the gate, I found my new home: the hidden village of Ramiros.
I couldn’t believe it.
Far from the Goblins’ eyes, a resistance of 300+ builders was gathering & preparing to take Jericho back.
As a scribe, I decided to start Let’s Fucking Build (LFB) with a simple goal in mind: Spread the word about building/working in web3 and thus strengthen the resistance.
As part of LFB, I will decentralize the decision-making for my writing topics. You shall thus choose the next edition’s topic. We can’t take Jericho back & repopulate it alone - we need your help.
For the next edition: Should we first identify investors to rebuild Jericho (web3 VC mapping) or prepare a strategy to build our army (web3 community-building framework)?
Introducing our new community experience
Jericho started as a group of friends and organically grew into one of the most attractive web3 builder communities. 300+ world-class builders from 25+ countries across the world meet, help each other and build together in Jericho on a daily basis.
The selective nature of Jericho’s community hasn’t prevented it from experiencing fully organic 25% MoM growth.
Growth-generated bottlenecks invited us to reinvent our community experience. We decided to automate and simplify entry while token-gating member content & showcasing the first principles of our product vision.
Straightforward onboarding flow
We’re improving 3 core moments:
Anyone can apply to join Jericho.
To do so:
Connect your wallet on app.jericho.gg
Complete the profile & application quests
If you’re selected by our Guardians, you’ll get access to the onboarding quest via the Rain Hammer NFT
After completing it, you’ll automatically receive Hudur’s Anvil - your Jericho membership NFT
3- Member content
The anvil unlocks all our Discord channels, our searchable member directory, & our wiki
Token-gated, gasless, soulbound & automated
Each quest gives Experience Points (XP) proving your Jericho activity and a gasless ERC-1155 Polygon NFT from our Jericho Artifacts collection. Complete the quest and get the NFT, no minting, no fees - we’re taking care of all that on our side.
All our NFTs are Soulbound Tokens - they’re non-transferable.
Our integrations with Twitter and Discord validate all quests automatically.
Jericho’s content (member directory, wiki, content library) is now token-gated and only accessible to verified Jericho builders.
Continuous networking quest
We’re introducing our first continuous quest: A networking quest called “Make a new fren”.
During this quest, Jericho members will prove they’re connected to each other by selecting a fellow builder & uploading a proof of frenship (screenshot or selfie).
Each connection unlocks an artifact (The Necklace of Frenship). The two wallets are engraved in this NFT’s metadata. You can’t fake a connection in Jericho, you have to prove it. A fren is a fren.
This quest will gradually build up Jericho’s verified social graph.
Lore for builders
Quests, XPs, artifacts, & game-like UI… These elements & the whole concept of lore come from the gaming & entertainment industries.
Just because work has always been experienced as a constraint, doesn’t mean it should stay that way.
Jericho is first & foremost a story - the story of a world where builders are fighting for their dreams.
We’re not building just one more boring & soulless B2B SaaS. Jericho’s lore & community are at the core of our product strategy.
