The Fastest Way to Build Cryptoeconomic Applications.

Build applications that incentivize engagement, generate revenue, and drive growth, autonomously. Here's how:

1

Build your app

Coordinate and incentivise desired user behaviors using a mixture of prebuilt and custom modules.

2

Bootstrap the community

Incentivise early adopters with tokens that are easy to earn early on, and gain value as the usage grows.

3

Watch it grow

Well designed economics increase demand for tokens as your app goes from upstart to ubiquity.

A Platform Owned and Operated by its Users.

A Community, not a company.

No, really: it's called 'The Metacolony' and exists to optimise Colony’s awesomeness. By building with Colony, you join a community incentivized by each other’s success.

It literally pays to build with Colony

Apps built on Colony may enter BudgetBox, a mechanism that provides regular CLNY payouts to selected applications based on their value to the Colony Network.

Take your seat at the table

Earning CLNY gives you a stake in the Colony Network's success, and direct influence in its decision making. You own the platform your app is built on.
