About the Node Program

Why become a Node

Braintrust is redefining the agency experience, leading to deeper transparency, increased collaboration among agencies and a flatter engagement structure.

Why refer a Node

The community is launching a competition to reward those who drive agencies to become new nodes on Braintrust, with the goal of adding $60M GSV in 2022.

  • Earn BTRST

    One winner will be selected each month of the competition, receiving 1% of total node GSV contributions in BTRST (up to $10k).

  • Expanded job opportunities

    Get even more access to high-paying jobs from top clients in more industries and expanded geographies like Europe, Africa and Asia.

  • More fees converted to BTRST, more value for you

    10% of each node's GSV is converted to BTRST, and send to the Braintrust DAO to fund community programs.
