@citimillz you heard of this?

Aftitunes should make a telos oroposal and do a live music event for like 1000 to 2000 dollars or like 10,000 telos and in 30 days get a venue rented oay for musicians and do a meet and greet back stage where they signup on discord or telegram and recieve a @tipcc tip in telos or signuo on ecency hive ane make a post and get upvoted by some whales friendly ro the project

I have talked to citimillz about roing a live music show with some hive / telos / telokanda signs and now afri-tunes i see would be promoted

And then we have the airdrop where everyone types in a private discord link given out only at the event in real life

Now they can all come in the discord and get an airdrop of the telos hive ane telokanda all at once with our @tipcc bot

Afritunes if it has a token can also be distributed to hive engine users too with hive keychain app being perfect for this

Anyway enjoy my $0.03 upvote and reblog to my 9000 followers


This is a wonderful suggestion, and I appreciate you for taking your time to put this down, it means a lot to us.

  • With regards to the live music. We've thought about it and we've tried to brainstorm on possible ways to take Afri-tunes and Hive to the Streets of Lagos (or Accra). Obviously, our major challenge is funding and that's why we have been somewhat quiet about it. Hosting or co-hosting such a big event is really expensive, and it is a (short-term) or long-term project for us.

  • As for making a proposal. Honestly, I try my best to be realistic, even though I'm optimistic. It is quite expensive and I do not have the capital or means to source for it, if things go south. In other words, if the proposal doesn't get much favour in the sight of our beloved Hivians, we may be forced to back out from the project. This can actually drain our morale, although it can also serve as a learning point for us. However, it is not impossible!

  • We already have a discord channel for Afri-tunes Community 😁 so it can come in Handy, and ecency is user friendly. It's also easy to create an account with it.

  • For a token associated with Afri-tunes, at this moment, I do not have any plans for that since I don't know the technicalities involved as well possible use cases. I don't want it to end up as inconsequential and then harm our project.

  • Thank you for your reblog. We are really grateful. Your suggestions are really amazing, and I would love to discuss further with you, if possible. Possibly via discord.

Am glad to be part of this weeks program as it is my first time.
