Shiny is as varied as your interests and as focused as your deep work.
Anything new, exciting and promising probably has its own Shiny Discord channel—and ambitious Shiny members obsessed with it.
Ask questions about what you’re learning, answer them about what you know.
Shiny Member Benefits
When you join Shiny, you get access to our exclusive Discord. Here's what you'll find there:
Likeminded builders and creators
We're designers, devs, entrepreneurs and more. But we all crave learning, building and exploring the frontier of technology.
Channels for all your curiosities.
We don’t do small talk. Whether you’re obsessed with DeFi, NFTs or single malt Scotch—you’ll find a channel to discuss it (and a hundred other things). Jump in to learn, contribute, get alpha or talk shop.
Members only media and exclusive partnerships.
Access the exclusive Shiny Podcast to discover the latest community news and get behind-the-scenes insights from guest experts. Some forms of membership also give you access to third-party software, NFT whitelists and other benefits.
Exclusive live sessions.
Join weekly sessions with experts, builders and creators to connect with other members and learn from them live.
Fun, vibes and team spirit.
Pursue your obsessions, share your wins and laugh off your losses with people who want the best for you. Learning shouldn't be a chore. Shiny makes it feel like play.
We don't care about your "real" name, your background or where you're from. If you vibe with us, you vibe with us.
You can become a Shiny member or hold off for now. We'll still be vibing in Shiny, building and pursuing whatever excites us.
Maybe you'll join us along the way. If you're not ready, all the best on your adventure.
Got a question? We've got answers. If you have some other questions, contact us using email.
I heard about Magpies and Feathers. What's the deal with those?
Shiny Magpies have different levels of utility:
1/1 Magpies get you a full Shiny membership, others don't.
Holding a Shiny Feather get you access to Shiny Lite, which gives you access to part of the Discord.
Both have additional utility such as exclusive software access and secret Discord channels.
What if I don't like Shiny?
You can revoke your membership by swapping your $SHINY for ETH at any time.
What's $SHINY for?
The SHINY token exists for 3 main reasons:
$SHINY gives you a self-sovereign way to enter and exit the community as you see fit without depending on anyone else.
$SHINY allows members to tip and reward each other for contributions to the community.
It enables us to own and govern the community without centralized leadership.
