How Will Bandit Help Astar?

Astar is utilizing Bandit’s Web3 campaign toolkit to run the upcoming campaigns related to the zkEVM launch. Bandit will also generate more on-chain activity, adoption, and visibility through our partner platforms like Brave and Unstoppable Domains, etc.
Soon, Bandit will deploy a campaign growth protocol that will serve as a bidding mechanism to provide cost per on-chain transaction for various on-chain activity providers.

Bandit’s proposal for Astar dApp Staking looking good. Got one question tho:

How will Bandit Network ensure its campaign growth protocol can handle different on-chain activity providers’ needs?

Thanks @Matt. Our toolkit is built on the ideologies of Lego, where every component (NFT mint, Twitter tasks, on-chain tasks, etc.) is built as an individual application. We call it a Lego. Using the campaign builder tool, the user can mix & match the Legos & build the campaign. This approach makes the campaign builder adopt any customised needs of a user. Also, we will be coming up with a Lego factory where developers can build & submit new Legos(applications).

Very interesting to see additional actor on this market trying to join the game.
It will increase competition with current actors which starting to request prohibitif tarifications for their services due to low competition.

Bouncing on that, what would be Bandit advantages over Zealy, Airlyft, Gleam, galxe etc…?

That is a good question that becomes interesting when posed in the current context, as you rightly mention, with less competition than expected.

Great observation @Mouthmouth68 :heart:
Our toolkits are white-labelled. This means you can have a quest platform on your website instead of on a 3rd party platform. Using your own quest platform, you can build & retain your community on your own platform rather than a 3rd party platform. ‘NOT YOUR PLATFORM, NOT YOUR COMMUNITY’ is our ideology. For that reason, Astar is utilising us for their own internal campaigns.

Just to summarise, we are like Shopify, whereas the names(competitors) you mentioned are like Amazon.

So if I understand well, we would be able to build our own Zealy website using your toolkit then this website would be ours?
If yes, how do you bill your customer?

2 Likes

Yes. You are right. We have a SAAS with pricing. like Shopify.
