Introducing Aluna’s Token-Permissioned Chat Group for Crypto Traders

2 min readAug 20, 2020


In line with our goal of creating a DAO for Aluna, we are taking the first step by setting up a token-permissioned chat group with key members of our community.


Public Telegram groups are often filled with spam and scam bots, and engagement is generally lacklustre. Notably, the existence of the free-rider problem discourages one from sharing valuable information with others.

Token-Permissioned Group (TPG)

Unlike traditional membership clubs, members don’t actually pay a fee to join the group, but simply have to prove ownership of their tokens to join and stay in the group. Members are free to leave the TPG at any time and sell their membership tokens on the market.

This provides a unique solution that aligns community values, and creates commitment within a community that shares ownership in its success.

Goal of the Aluna TPG

The Aluna TPG complements the Aluna.Social platform by giving key members of the community a place to exchange information in real-time, and actively discuss crypto markets, trading, and platform features.

With all the noise and lack of community alignment across Twitter and Telegram, Aluna TPG aims to be a central place of alignment for value-add discussions, relationships and networking for crypto traders.

How It Works

To enter the Aluna TPG, one must hold at least 1337 ALN tokens in their MetaMask wallet. This minimum balance must be maintained or one will be automatically removed from the group.

After acquiring 1337 ALN, click this link to open your Telegram app and follow the instructions to join the Aluna Token-Permission Telegram group.

A big thanks to and their Collab.Land suite of tools for DAO communities for making this possible.

The Birth of a Community Ownership Economy

We hope that with everyone’s participation and help, we can create a thriving and engaged community of crypto traders whose value as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

The Aluna Token-Permissioned Telegram Group has been seeded with 50 members made up of influencers from Crypto Twitter and active traders on Aluna.Social. Thank you to all members for contributing to the inception of the Aluna TPG!

Aluna.Social is ALN’s flagship product which is currently in Beta. Aluna.Social is a multi-exchange social trading terminal where traders can connect and manage multiple exchange accounts from one place, leverage on community insights, and automatically copy the World’s best crypto traders.
