“The Diggers”, the crypto community making its mark

Investors 2.0, those who in 2021 embody part of the future of Finance, do not wear out their funds in darts on the benches of business schools. They do not spend crazy sums on trainings sold on Instagram by “ lifestyle influencers“. You don’t come across them either in pyramid business presentation meetings based on suspicious sponsorships and hunting for those less clever than yourself.

In reality, the Xavier Niel of 2030 is most likely documenting for hours on end the latest underground crypto project, or feverishly resting his finger on the mouse at 2 a.m., hoping to mint the ultimate NFT that will change his life, virtually surrounded by many comrades-in-arms, harboring the same hopes and sporting the same dark circles under his eyes.

Made up of cells, these small but very dynamic communities have their rules, their dedicated discussion spaces, their values… Values ​​often structured around a solid feeling of belonging to something historic, but also characterized by great solidarity. . The movement has blurred contours and is constantly changing. However, some initiatives stand out, whether in terms of their ambitions, the sincerity of their approach, or the richness of the universe they embody. Meeting today with the group “The diggers“, a French crypto community that tries to put collaboration and mutual aid back at the center of the game.

dig it yourself

The initiative “The Diggers” is initially the not necessarily structured adventure of 3 friends: Ivan, Hugo and Florian. And in the role of the chief speaker, so it’s Ivan – a.k.a ” Rusk0f » on social networks – who often monopolizes the microphone, under the amused and accustomed gaze of his comrades. The flow is submachine gun, but the substance of the subject is sharp. It is that we quickly understand that the young entrepreneur does not have time and that ideas tend to multiply faster than the number of hours available in the day.

We learn pell-mell that the 3 friends come from different backgrounds, but all embody in their own way the ” Omo Digital Nomad Sapiens » of the 21st century.

Nomad Diggers

A computer, a more or less stable Internet connection, and everyone tells how they evolved in “their life before” (understand “Before the revolution of cryptocurrencies, Decentralized Finance and NFTs”). France, Japan, the Canary Islands… the destinations have been linked in recent years, each trying their hand at many digital sectors, from SEO (the art of referencing on the Internet) to e-books, including e-commerce and traditional finance, real estate and even journalism. And crypto in all this?

Ivan and Florian have been in the industry for a little longer than their comrade Hugo, who moreover easily concedes that he is a little more “reasonable” than his rambunctious friends. Piloting, strategic management is him, and where his friends have experienced the most improbable things in the most disreputable corners of the web, he explains that he came to crypto late in life, convinced by Ivan “Arrived as a Messiah” (as for the 5 previous ideas related to finance, SEO and the web, the interested party will graciously admit).

But this time everything indicates that it is the right one: on the occasion of the rise of the Binance Smart Chain at the end of 2020, the markets are racing, crypto projects are multiplying, and with them the opportunities. As the price of the $CAKE token (one of their darlings) soars, the 3 friends are sinking further and further into the cryptomonetary continent, making Twitter the mouthpiece of their discoveries.

As we can see, the paths are plural, fragmented, emblematic of the search for meaning and experience to which the younger generations aspire, those who find themselves on the threshold of Metaverses with infinite potential.

But if the path is singular, the individualities strong, the three entrepreneurs always come back in their speech to the alpha and the omega of their current project: the community.

Common place

Forged in internet culture, nourished as much by references as geeky as they are obscure and a state of mind that can only be understood by those who spent thousands of hours in their young years facing the artificial light of a computer screen, it is an understatement to say that thehe community holds a central place in the emerging crypto industry.

And those who are old enough to have known it agree: what is happening today in this bubbling melting pot of ideas and initiatives furiously reminds us of the beginnings of the internetbetween guilty underground pleasures and limitless ambitions.

On a planetary scale, there are thus a few tens of thousands of individuals who, through sleepless nights, hectoliters of coffee, mutual aid and unbridled initiatives, make the heart of an entire ecosystem beat faster. crypto that feeds on this energy to transform it into concrete ideas, preparing the ground for the next economic and industrial revolution with NFT, DeFi and blockchain sauce.

Hugo, Ivan and Florian know this observation by heart. Accustomed to building outside the framework, they know that on the subjects of new financial technologies, the path becomes clearer as you go and that in such a context, nothing beats the strength of a close-knit group.

From their first months on social networks, the 3 friends coordinate the ideas that their followers bring to them, conduct their own research, practice “DYOR”, in accordance with the famous crypto mantra. It is because the pitfalls are numerous and the information abundant, especially since after the BSC, it is the emergence of a whole new ecosystem that the crypto community is assisting: that of Solana, and with it a new continent of NFT (Non-Fungible Token) that will prove to be bubbling with life and opportunity. This is how the idea of ​​a community group was naturally born, made up of enthusiasts, each bringing their stone to the common building: The Diggers

A place to take

“We quickly realized that between the news and information platforms, such as the Journal du Coin, and the somewhat hermetic and very specific content concerning DeFi or the latest developments in crypto protocols, there was a large area gray area that we thought was relevant to occupy: an environment where everyone, beginner or more experienced, could find themselves able to collaborate on their own scale and exchange with other enthusiasts to discover, “digger” therefore, New projects “

From the start of the initiative, and in its day-to-day operation, a strong value: to ensure that the research work is common, and the profit shared, contrary to one of the dominant models of the crypto industry where a few relays of influence irrigate the marketing market for the benefit of a few big initiatives, “shillant” the projects. The origin of the group’s slogan: “We are TheDiggers, Opposite of the shillers”.

“What interests us is to dissect the fundamental, to ‘digger’, to dig into the recesses. In our eyes, those we call “shilleurs” are the wounds of the crypto ecosystem, individuals or entities that over-sell low-quality projects, in exchange for commissions or affiliation. »

However, do the 3 original diggers (who are now surrounded by several invested members whose community responsibilities are increasing) refuse to enter into any commercial agreement or partnership? Not really, since these are structured by and for the communityas the group’s recent news shows.

Community is the key

On a daily basis, the Diggers help each other, test everything that comes to hand, make mistakes… and above all report all of this so that the conditions for creating a collective intelligence emerge.

And since it’s about investment, good plans are exchangedthe old ones guide the new ones for their 1st panic mint of NFT and when a member is in distress, solidarity is quickly organized, human first, often technical, and sometimes even financial… the crypto community has a lot of heartthis is perhaps one of its best kept secrets.

One of the main objectives of the Diggers initiative is to ensure that the whole community benefits from joint initiatives, after these have been presented, debated and arbitrated collectively. There are thus around 10,000 people on Discord, and even more on Twitter, who debate on a daily basis to find out whether it is appropriate to establish such a partnership or to enter into cooperation with such a project that respects common values ​​and standards.

Operation in DAO “irl” mode which could surely draw inspiration from many crypto projects whose shared governance often remains only wishful thinking.

The key is a simple idea: to ensure that the community benefits from serious and solid projects, the latter being guaranteed at the same time to be accompanied in their organic growth and guided on good practices and pitfalls to avoid.

And it works! If the team quickly struck an agreement with the NFT Musicaux project Pianityit was quite recently the giant of the emerging Metaverses industry The Sandbox which placed its trust in the dynamic Diggers!

The founders of The Diggers have big ambitions for the future, but they assure it: nothing will happen without consultation and validation by the community. Thus, if Hugo, Florian and Ivan anticipate that their somewhat improvised community initiative may gain in density in the future and take a more professional turn, the redistribution and the share will remain essential fundamentals.
