There are two main ZenAcademy NFTs: The Genesis token and The 333 Club token. Each comes with lifetime membership to ZenAcademy, as well as access to each community's Discord server.
Occasionally, there are additional NFTs available to ZenAcademy members. For example, during the holiday season in 2021, ZenAcademy airdropped 12 free NFTs to members as part of the "12-days-of-Zenmas" event. ZenAcademy also releases occasional POAPs (proof of attendance protocol) NFTs which are given to attendees of certain events and that may come with certain privileges.
In addition to the memberships above, there are a number of other roles (memberships), granting different levels of access to the ZenAcademy Discord: OG, Partnership, Specialty and Free.
Explore the table below to learn more about each role type.
Holders of one or more ZenAcademy Genesis tokens are able to verify ownership in Discord, granting members full access to the server, as well as all perks, such as giveaways, promotions, deals, or discounts through ZenAcademy.
There is no future utility specifically outlined, however Genesis token holders have lifetime membership to ZenAcademy and the discord server, and the intention is to continue to deliver value to this group of early supporters.
Holders of one or more 333 Club tokens are able to verify ownership in The ZenAcademy Discord, granting members full access to the server, as well as all perks, such as giveaways, promotions, deals, or discounts throughZenAcademy.
In addition to lifetime membership to ZenAcademy and the discord server, 333 Club members also have token-gated access to private The 333 Club Discord server.
The 333 Club is is an exclusive community of no more than 333 members, made up of builders, creators, investors, traders, professionals, and the enthusiasts who value a friendly and focused environment to learn, help, and grow together.
333 Club members also have more access to Zeneca, and the ability to book 1:1 meetings.
The 333 Club Membership Token
Discord role (no NFT)
The "OG role" (which includes "Almost OG" and "The Lucky Few") is reserved for early members of the ZenAcademy Discord who do not own an NFT, but who are entitled to contribute to the community without needing to buy a token.
The benefits largely mirror that of the Genesis membership, however, there are and will be certain benefits not available to Genesis holders that are not available to OGs.
There will never be any new OG roles allocated.
Discord role (no NFT)
From time to time, ZenAcademy will partner with other communities or groups, and those members will join ZenAcademy in a limited capacity.
Example Partnership roles:
NAS Academy (an educational platform): Students from ZenAcademy-driven NAS courses will be invited to join the ZenAcademy Discord for the duration of 2022, but will have limited benefits and perks.
Curious Addys: their holders have access to the entire server, without benefits and perks.
RooTrop: their holders have access to the entire server, without benefits and perks.
Two Bored Apes Loyal Listener: Select listeners of the Two Bored Apes podcast were airdropped NFT tokens that grant access just to the Two Bored Apes channel.
Discord role (no NFT)
The ZenAcademy Discord also assigns additional roles to members. These do not come with any added perks or access, but highlight contributions for members or allow members to opt into certain types of notifications.
Example Specialty roles:
Vanity Roles: Showcases members who have won poker tournaments, games of trivia, or are verified members of partner project teams.
Alert Roles: Enables members to opt-in being alerted for events and other interesting happenings.
Discord role (no NFT).
By claiming a Free role, members are able to navigate and view the entire ZenAcademy server, but are not able to contribute or type. Further, free members do not have access to perks such as giveaways, promotions, deals, or discounts.
We felt it important to have a Free membership tier to allow those without the financial means the ability to view most of the content we create, as well as to allow anyone to 'try before you buy' and see what our server is like.
Consider claiming a Free role if you're not sure if ZenAcademy is for you but want to try it out.
