Welcome to the Stack CafeTM — Prism.io Partners with Blockstack on a Community Development Rewards Platform. Late last week, we heard about the partnering of Prism.io and Blockstack to help Blockstack launch a new community rewards program – Blockstack Community Rewards Program.
Today we are trying to provide a brief overview of Prism.io.
Prism.io describes itself this way – it is “a tool to help the organizations of the future build, incentive and grow their communities and spark movements around them.”
“We are building an operating system for community participation with incentives baked into the core.”
Prism.io is a platform that helps projects connect the company, community, and contributors to help facilitate the growth of the same.
Prism.io is trying to provide an application that will help companies leverage the knowledge that resides in the community to help grow a project.
Prism .io was founded by Adam Breckler

And, Prism.io’s application may be used in many ways e.g., surveys, polls, bug bounties, usability test, content creation, social sharing…
To do this, Prism.io launched an application to help a company incentivize the community and contributors through a rewards system platform. Prism.io describes it as:
“Reward Community Members through ‘Proof of Contribution’”
So how does it work? Well it is as easy as:
- Launch a page
- Start a campaign
- Distribute rewards
Prism.io can be used by any company and not just companies/applications on the Blockstack architecture. (See Prism.io for more)
The Stack Cafe tried it out too: The Stack Cafe participated in the Blockstack community rewards program and earned some tokens from Blockstack called stacks (potentially earned some tokens as the tokens are not “live” and may not ever be redeemable per Blockstack.)(See below screenshot on Blockstack’s disclaimer on tokens – stacks)
So, Blockstack is asking for you to join in, contribute to Blockstack and receive rewards for your contribution. Community spirit is on the rise.
In essence, if you can contribute to the Blockstack ecosystem in a technical or non-technical way, Blockstack will issue to said contributor the native Blockstack token, a Stack.
Below is a screenshot from April 23, 2018, related to the new rewards program.
Note: If you do not have the Blockstack browser, please see this link (note – to enable the full functionality of any namespace (name/domain name) or dApp built for the Blockstack ecosystem (e.g., building a new internet, a decentralized internet, re-decentralizing the internet, that is distributed via the blockchain, bitcoin), you must use the Blockstack browser).
For help on installing and using the Blockstack Browser, please visit this link Getting started with the Blockstack Browser.
