Thanks to our supporters on Gitcoin and Giveth, Bloom is now 3/4 complete with the social platform our community needs to connect with each other and the public. Here’s a preview of what it includes!

Public Features:

  • Find your local Bloom to participate in regenerative actions near you
  • Templates for regenerative actions that you can do in your home, neighborhood, and bioregion
  • Blogs telling the stories of local Bloom projects and community building
  • Start a local Bloom – people who want to form a local community can follow an easy application process. Automated steps give them resources to start their first events and choose a project.

Member Features:

You can become a member of Bloom by registering to pay a monthly member fee. This gives you access to a community of like-minded creative doers, to build value together and actively care for your communities.

Patronage token. Log regenerative actions you do, receive Bloom tokens. Your voting weight in your local Bloom DAO is weighted according to the actions you did in your community. As Bloom becomes profitable, at the end of the year all Bloom members receive dividends proportional to their token holdings. You may also give your Bloom tokens to other Bloom members in exchange for services you might not otherwise spend money on, and they’ll in turn receive the year-end dividend. We hope this will become a way to circulate care for one another and develop more creative systems of valuing each other.

Chat with fellow Bloom members using Matrix. The chat is hosted within Bloom’s url instead of a noisy place like Discord or Facebook. It also bridges with WhatsApp and Discord where there are local Bloom DAOs who primarily use those chat tools.

Member profiles. Find fellow Bloomers and collaborate. Profiles are portable, which means you can use your profile across other websites and not have to enter new one for every network you’re part of. How does that work? We use Ceramic protocol, which allows you to own your profile data. We interoperate with MyMeta by MetaGame, which helps other platforms adopt this profile system for share goals of real world collaboration.

Members of Bloom Network can vote on platform features and participate in their local DAO.

Once we have the platform up and ready we will begin populating it with templates written by local Blooms organizers, thanks to a grant from the Lush Spring Prize!

And then we will announce our Call to Bloom, to invite people all over the world to start local Bloom DAOs or join existing ones.

With love from our gardens to yours,
Bloom International
