Metrics & Milestones
The month ended with the Nugget’s Crypto Community (NCC) member count being just shy of 4,000 at (3,998).
The monthly Member-Only Live Q&A video was again a hit for those wanting to hear what Alex had to say on key issues and trends.
Nugget’s News participated in round 7 of Gitcoin Grants in September. We were again blown away by the generosity of all the Ethereum enthusiasts who contributed to the Monthly Ethereum News & Development Update, an ongoing series that Alex shoots with EthHub co-founder and Set Labs product marketing manager Anthony Sassano.
Our team continued to grow in September, with Abigail McInnes joining as an executive assistant. Abigail comes from an earlier executive assistant role and brings vast experience in administration, planning, digital design and recruitment. She will assist the executive director in growing the Nugget’s News team and brand into 2021.
To protect our viewers from the bombardment of cryptocurrency scam ads on YouTube, we decided a couple of weeks ago to stop running ads. Ultimately, our viewers’ safety takes precedence.
From a member value standpoint, we were thrilled to connect with DCL Blogger—one of the leading minds when it comes to the fast-growing world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs)—who has started posting video updates in the group and engaging with other members who have questions about NFTs.
Pleasingly, our soon-to-launch Member Platform passed security and bug testing in September. As of Monday, 12th October, our website will be under construction for a week as we will be migrating member accounts and information across to our new platform. Once all of our current members gain access to the platform, we will open it up for the public.
As for our content team, they are completing our Beginner’s Course—a feature inside the platform which will introduce members to crypto, which we are really excited about.
Our hard-working team continues to put in the hours getting the Member Platform ready for launch. Looking forward to sharing it with you all!
