The DESK token (ERC-20) is CoinDesk’s social token, offering real rewards for audience engagement. Initially, DESK will be the social fuel powering the tokenized experience at the 2022 Consensus festival.
Looking to the future, we're preparing systems where DESK acts as a feedback loop between us and our audience – our ultimate goal is to activate DESK by rewarding user engagement with a tool that recognizes their voice and empowers them to help shape the DESK ecosystem as we reimagine the definition of crypto media together.
DESK is the social fuel that propels attendees through their Consensus experience. It doesn’t matter if you attend a panel discussion, a keynote speech, or visit the DAO house. Everywhere you go, you’ll have the opportunity to claim DESK rewards, so you’ll have what you need to keep exploring.
DESK isn’t a hodler’s token. It’s designed to keep you happy and comfortable throughout your Consensus journey.
Use your DESK to grab a burrito from one of the local food trucks around the festival or get a drink at one of the surrounding bars. Collect a DESK community pfp NFT or a piece by one of our featured artists. Hoodies, hats, crypto accessories, get whatever you’d like from our merch store using your DESK.
DESK is not a financial asset and it is not intended to hold any monetary value. The rise of NFTs and DAOs has shown a new use case for blockchain technology: facilitating community through activated social utility. DESK is currently designed so that its value comes from its utility within the CoinDesk ecosystem rather than becoming a valuable financial asset.
