How to Earn Contribution Points (CP) on Iskra

The Iskra Community System is a fundamental part of its overall ecosystem, and its unique structure allows participants to enjoy various benefits and share in the overall value created by the platform.  The ultimate goal is to distribute up to 100% of all platform fees collected from the community rewards pool to the community system participants who operate a network node, stake, and simply use the platform.

Iskra platform participants will receive contribution points (CP) based on platform activity, and all outcomes generated through the platform services will be shared according to the contribution points.

Beginning November 23, 2022, participants can begin tracking their platform activity and earning CP with the latest portal update.  

Current Pioneer NFT (P-NFT) holders that have staked their P-NFTs since June 30, 2022 have earned 60,000 CPs for every P-NFT staked. If they have referral bonuses, they would get an additional 10% boost, which is currently at 6,000 per referral and may change in proportion to the P-NFT’s CP.

The Community System integrates the following elements:

  • Contribution Points (CP) – given according to platform contribution, which can be checked with on-chain data
  • Community Ranking System – calculates community rankings and tiers based on CP
  • Community Rewards – platform proceeds that are distributed to the Iskra community based on CP and community tier from the Community Rewards Pool 

Below is the current milestone schedule for implementation. Please note that these are subject to change depending on development and other planning decisions, as well as Iskra governance and voting.
