📝 Hot Off the Presses.

Last week, we shared all the juicy details from the Braintrust whitepaper. This week, we’re getting technical - real quick! Introducing BTRST Token Economics, answering all your most pressing questions about BTRST. It includes:

  • A brief token overview
  • The use cases for BTRST - including governance, bid staking, and career benefits
  • Token details such as max supply 
  • Token distribution, including all segments who have access to it and in what percentages of total supply
  • Backers

  • Over 8.1k messages have been sent on that Telegram channel in just one week (seriously, there’s stuff there for everyone. Check it out.)
  • 5 different international Telegram groups for Braintrust have been started by the community (and counting!)

🏛️ Network Infrastructure.

The Braintrust public dashboard development is nearing completion! This is the dashboard to end all dashboards. The radically transparent dashboard that redefines radical transparency. The best place for you to go and see exactly how much Braintrust is growing! The dashboard will include metrics like total network revenue, total talent, total jobs, average job compensation, average hourly rates for different role types, and so much more. NOTHING will be hidden. Here’s a peek at the designs - note the numbers are dummy numbers for the time being:

Other Infrastructure projects underway:

  • A new Braintrust Academy course all about token withdrawal. This course is so important it’s a prerequisite for withdrawing tokens. We’ll be announcing its availability in Discord first, so make sure you are there!
  • MORE additions to the Help Center!

💻 Product Improvements.

You want to earn BTRST? But you don’t want to get hired as a freelancer? Or hire a freelancer?

That’s totally fine. Just sign up for a Connector account. Thanks to this recent update for the product in preparation for the BTRST launch last week, now anyone can sign up for Braintrust and earn BTRST - all without having to think about the jobs portal. Connectors can refer new talent and new clients and earn BTRST for helping grow the network. Because Braintrust really has a place for everybody!

Other product updates include:

  • Development for token withdrawal functions!
  • Bug fixes for the Braintrust wallet
  • More ways to earn BTRST aside from referrals - stay tuned for details on this!


👤Living Braintrust’s Values.

Two of Braintrust’s values are to be community-driven and to act like an owner. Over this past week, these values have been on display for the world to see as the community continues to run itself and create a welcoming space for learning for everyone involved.

Let’s give a shoutout to Braintrust talent Shoaib, who in anticipation of the huge influx of users and prevention of bad actors, created a security bot. Thank you, Shoaib!Screen Shot 2021-09-09 at 4.06.46 PM

🚩 Weekly challenges and red flags.

  • With so many newcomers to the Braintrust community, it’s important to provide as much information as possible to help them get oriented. And when not everyone is a crypto enthusiast, providing information about the BTRST launch in an accessible way is paramount. This will continue to be a point of focus for a long while - possibly forever.
