The past couple of years have been exciting here at Propy. If you’ve been with us since Day 1, you’ve seen the rapid expansion across the continental U.S. — and now, the world. In pursuit of its vision and to continue the growth of its ecosystem, Propy had reserved 15% of the total supply of PROs for donations to different organizations within the ecosystem to support research and increase development and scalability of the blockchain infrastructure (including educational efforts in blockchain, hackathons, solidity educational programs, blockchain courses, and the Grantee’s operations.). So, we’re introducing a new grant program that will use the donation pool to promote Propy’s decentralized ecosystem.

Grant Program to Promote the Propy Decentralized Ecosystem

We already know that our community members are intelligent, innovative, and progressive. That’s why we’d like to use this opportunity to motivate real estate and blockchain enthusiasts to contribute articles and videos as part of a grant program to promote the Propy decentralized ecosystem. The donation pool for the tokens will be distributed by the Blockchain Advertising Alliance (BAA) foundation. BAA’s goal is to support talent in the field of development and adoption of blockchain technology. From the donation pool, BAA is willing to distribute up to 351,000 PRO tokens per month to contributors (up to 70,000 PRO tokens per month to writers, up to 66,000 PRO tokens per month to video producers, up to 105,000 PRO tokens per month to article moderators, and up to 110,000 PRO tokens per month to video moderators). In other words, contributors will be rewarded in PRO tokens for their participation in the Decentralized real estate ecosystem.

IMPORTANT: PRO tokens are utility tokens; thus, they can only be exchanged on the Propy platform for the services displayed on the website.

To join the program, you must submit your application before June 19, 2019 and be selected as a Propy writer, Propy video producer, or a Propy moderator by Propy visitors during the community voting process (June 19, 2019 – June  21, 2019).
