Token Gated Spaces 🎟
You wallet can unlock digital and physical spaces with tokens acting as the key. These digital objects are starting to give us access to places we cannot otherwise reach. Token gating is just starting
Yesterday I launched a little experiment called Bay Area Excitement ($BAE). We raised 3.3 ETH (~$10,500) to put on a set of parties around the Bay Area:
47 people committed funds to the project. We have distributed thousands of $BAE tokens to them. They will be able to distribute those tokens to their friends. We also had different tiers for different kinds of access levels:
Who controls the funds & how will they be used?
These funds will be controlled by the artists who run the events. The token now acts as a gate to access the party. The $BAE crew will put on token-gated events using the ERC20 token generated by the crowdfunding. You can check out the campaign here:

I then went over to Luma, a ticketing platform, and created a token-gated invite:
I also started trying out different tools for token-gating online discussions. These will allow the $BAE community to communicate. There are lots of ways to go about this and it was so fun to see the different approaches.
Check out Guild.xyz—which helps you created chat links and channels:
These tools allow people to gather around common causes. You can even build basic chat rooms around them with OurSpaces.xyz:
This creates a private online club which will link to a private real world club.
Welcome to the $BAE Club and the sundries sets. They start this weekend.
