I'm a Philosophical (as opposed to Financial or Unicorn ) Investor* . I wish I was both, but the value of my investment in NRV just doesn't get me to Founder status or beyond. However, I am here because I fully support the vision of the New Content Economy. I'm not even sure if I'll ever withdraw the $$ I've invested. And that is why the topic of Niches , Moderators , and Narrator/Content Producers is very interesting to me. Ted O'Neill says a few things that I want to highlight or clarify —...

I am really excited to reserve Niches. I have been thinking about which topics I'd like to own and I'm trying to figure out how to make threads engaging and worthwhile to the readers and content creators. I'm not sure if I have seen this topic covered already, but how many Niches can one Founder own at a time? Edit: Oh nevermind, it does states so in the article - 5 at a time.

If I'm reading this correctly, all ideas for a niche go though approval and then a bidding process. So once approved, you would need to win the auction to finally gain your own niche idea?

I had the same feeling. Thinking about it again, I suppose it might stop people blocking niches or claiming the obviously popular ones in a fastest finger first competition..But it's annoying if you had a great and unique idea that can then just be bought by the richest bidder.

Yes, that's what it looks like. It's a much more refined process than I thought. The only thing that I don't like is the bidding process. I get that the presenter of the idea still gets a benefit somehow (from the looks of it, more "points" or something of that nature) but it just won't feel right because if I propose a super awesome niche or something that I'm really passionate about, it can easily just go to the highest bidder. So in the end, Founder status gives you an advantage but at...

Re: Fear of Whales NRV aren't going to be worth much on day one... or even day one-hundred. It's value will be driven by the development of the community. As it grows, so will the value of the NRV. Growth will largely be driven by Niche owners cultivating their Niche(s)'s content. This won't stop some of the quick-flippers (flippers! is there room for a dolphin metaphor in here somewhere?) but it will discourage squatters. If someone buys the Niche "Elastic Socks" and then recruits really...

I think if your heart is in it and you truly are passionate about your niche, you will be rewarded with a great community and quality content creators. My wife has a reasonably popular instagram for vegan recipes and I am speaking with her about using her connections in that community to start a niche of our own that we could 'manage'. I have a passion for basketball, gardening and nutrition and a good friend of mine is very knowledgeable in the automotive industry. I'm really excited by...

Hey @Rosemary - how will localization factor in to Niche ownership and/or differentiation? In other words, if I own the Niche "sock puppet"... is that an English-Niche or is it universal? I'm assuming that for each language, there will be a "duplicate" or "localized" owner...?

Re: Latest Intel on Niches!!

Rosemary ·
Yes, we're envisioning that the first platform will be English-only, and then we'll spin out language-specific versions over time, which will have their own Niches and Niche owners, etc.

Re: Latest Intel on Niches!!

I would think that as new languages are rolled out, there might also be opportunity for those platforms to have their own "Founders" as well? It would be cool, if I was Thai, to see the platform come to my language... and have an opportunity to become a Founder of the Thai Narrative community... maybe a Locals Only open-enrollment period for the week leading up to the launch of that version?... Update: There are clearly people currently investing that are not going to be, primarily, English...

Speaking of niches, do you already have a pool of mods that niche owners can pick from? How exactly does one become a moderator? Can I be a niche owner AND a moderator (not for the same niche but for 2 different niches)?
Reply

Re: Latest Intel on Niches!!

Ted ·
Yes, it's TBD about how/whether we would support some kind of Founder status for new languages that roll out. That said, our goal is to offer even more opportunities and rewards for all of our Founders in the future. I can say pretty confidently that the list of benefits of being a Founder will only grow over time. We want to really recognize those of you that took the plunge early with Narrative.

There's a limit on the number of niches any one person can own or bid on, so there should be plenty of niche opportunities for everyone.

Narrative will support a Moderator Pool where owners can find people who want to be moderators (or already are moderators on other niches). You become a moderator by being nominated by a niche owner and then being elected by the community. If you are a niche owner, you cannot moderator your own niche, but you can certainly moderate someone else's.

We are not planning to support the concept of a sub-niche at this time. NBA and NBA Draft could be two different niches, but of equal value/placement. Regarding providing incentives to people who suggest niches... all I can say is that the way things work in Chaucer are not the way things will work longer term. Lots of little and not so little improvements will be added and one of them is the suggestion process (and there is a kind of reward for suggesters coming in the future). Stay tuned!

I know we're limited to 5 as founders. But is that limit just for the initial roll out or is 5 the hard limit? Asked another way, after year one, if a niche owner wants to sell his/her niche, can a founder with 5 niches potentially scoop it up?

Great posts would be great to hear a few founders post too and love to know how many founders there are ?? Could anyone have a guess at how much the average niche will sell for (I know its a wild guess) but if its goes above my investment when live that then im stuck. : (

So overall, kudos for devising a system that addresses this vast undertaking of creating niches. Lots of considerations, and probably impossible to make the process completely fair. However I am hoping there is a way to do more for those who propose niches but do not have the funds to compete with big NRVE holders when it comes to bidding for the niches they proposed. If we don't, we'll have failed to address a blatantly unfair situation. To ignore this flaw, is to start the New Content...

I was hoping for something along these lines as well. I actually wouldn't even be opposed to changing the "Buy-It-Now" price of my suggested Niche (that no one else suggested) to $100-$150). So it's a similar auction-type idea like what eBay has where if there's demand, we start the bidding process at $75 and if you're the sole person to suggest a niche, you get to "Buy-It Now" at a slight premium.

Hi guys I dont think firstly there is never a perfect system but I think Ted has found an approach which is fair for all and puts incentives in the right place, im not a founder and I think there will be plenty of opportunity for us. Im not saying its going to be plain sailing!. but we all want the best for Narrative and for its community. And when we look back over this year we will have many stories to tell!! : ) Harj x

First bidding for Niche will be just guessing and I am sure that there will be some over payed Niches. After one year of using Narrative, next year bidding will be better in my opinion. I will bid for NBA, Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin at start and we will see if I'm going to win some Niche...

I expect you’re right Cicbar - after a year, there will be some sort of rhythm already, and the niche values will be manifest. That’s part of our usefulness as early adopters - to weather and assist the tougher stages, until some of the kinks are worked out!

Good points and well stated Bryan - as a community we need to develop/implement a clear engagement toolkit based on the core principles of the Narrative vision. We at "TeamEFFORT" will be working on a set of "moderation" activities - will share a WBS "List of tasks" later in the month or in April when we meet to address, our first task is Niche related activities (Identify - Niche functions - operational management, etc..) but the Comms strategy and ultimately the moderation functions will...

Need Your Input! Labels in Chaucer

Rosemary ·
When the Chaucer alpha goes live, we'll be allowing the Founders (defined as anyone who contributed 60 or more NEO in the token sale) to have certain permissions. Founders will have a little "Founder" label next to their name in the interface. The next group of people who will have permissions in Chaucer will be anyone who participated in the token sale (regardless of the amount of NEO they contributed). I'm asking for input from your illustrious minds...what label would you like to see next...

I think "Original" or "Pioneer" has a nice ring to it. They are since the beginning but not necessarily a Founder. Curious to see what the community comes up with in here!

I thought about Patron (but that's what Patreon supporters are called). The whole clam thing didn't even cross my mind, to be honest.

Newbie here. So, I'd like to put in that it must be a somewhat grandiose and cool name, with fun coming in just as a bonus. You know... something that makes it seem like only visionaries would have bought in early. Thus, I really like "Pioneer." Along those lines, some alternatives: Framer - Dovetails nicely with the "founder" language Architect Steward Leader

As a pretentiously self-appointed devil's advocate: the reason I don't like some of these suggestions is because they* are compound words/phrases and/or they aren't really read as labels/titles. Got NRVE really channels the "Got Milk" campaign in the USA, and is pretty campy—along the lines of Wendy's famous "Where's The Beef?". I'd prefer any labels attached to my account name/profile to be a single, strong word—like Founder—which doesn't depend on specialized, internal context, but can be...

Rosemary's "I've got Nerve" is growing on me... I'd found that too when looking through an idiom dictionary entry for expressions containing "nerve", but dismissed it too quickly as sounding funny... The more I read it, the less weird it sounds. I'm starting to like it! Maybe "Got NRVE" is even more to the point?

Here is another idea that I love, but am not sure how we could pull it off. In building projects they often sell bricks. For instance, for the Fenway Park refurb, you could buy a brick. They would engrave your name on an real actual brick. And cement it to the ground in the concourse. People that bought in are brick owners. They send you a map with the location of your brick. If you attended a Red Sox game at Fenway Park you could actually visit and take a picture of your brick. Buying a...
