Navigating the Mangrove community
Introduction to Mangrove Discord, Choose your Tribe
You may have noticed the Mangrove discord was revamped, citing many added features of which some are yet to be revealed.
With the wildlife of the Mangrove wondering what is on the horizon for the project, it is time to shed some lights on the Mangrove community topic.
Embracing the Mangrove
A mangrove is a deep swamp that is difficult to navigate due to the thick shrubbery, although seemingly hostile to the outsider, mangroves exist to support us.
Understanding the potential of a decentralized exchange with a global orderbook, capable of aggregating all the available on-chain liquidity with an optimized matching engine, is not an easy task.
You will need help on your journey as navigating the Mangrove alone can be challenging.
Tribes are loosely based on your views and the role you play in the crypto-sphere. Your Discord experience will vary based on the tribe you have chosen, not choosing a tribe will leave you inhabiting the role of a Sundari, the most common type of tree in the Mangrove.
The Apes — Ahh the ape, he reads articles much like this one but only halfway through and says to himself — that is enough smart words for today — before dropping a massive percentage of his holdings into the project. The ape is a staple of the crypto community and the most relatable one.
The Leopards — The market-making leopards, often said to be stop-hunting the apes who sometimes position themselves poorly in the open coastline of the mangrove, an act painful to see for many participants of the swamp, but a necessary one nonetheless. Leopards like to stay close to the spread with their conditional orders, they have dominated the centralized exchanges of the nearby villages and now they are carefully exploring the shadowy corners of DeFi within the Mangrove, as a new territory for sophisticated market making strategies. They are the pillar of any healthy price action as they deploy their capital to provide liquidity and tight spreads to the masses.
The Hummingbird — Although liking the solitary nature of yield farming the high APR insects around the forest, the intelligent hummingbird often forms small flocks to develop new yield generating protocols and bots. Hearing about the composable and programmable order books deep inside the Mangrove, the hummingbird has been noted to develop their own nests upon the git branches of the forest and are easy to find within the nests of the Mangrove Discord.
Building an engaged, informed and passionate community
Our goal is to have an all-inclusive community with low barriers to entry. We understand the topics of optimized on-chain liquidity, market-making, etc. can be difficult to grasp. But no matter how much or how little you know about finance, DeFi, or Mangrove, you are always welcome to join, engage, learn and discuss a variety of DeFi topics. We are confident you will have a great time in doing so!
Inclusivity — Making sure everybody feels welcome, respected and valued
Education — Streamlining the learning process by introducing attractive and effective methods to help understand the intricacies of Mangrove and the DeFi space
Activity — Maintaining active conversations, ensuring no questions are left unanswered, and no ideas are left untouched
Engagement — Creating fun and interactive activities within the community
Proactivity — Encourage and support community members that actively assist new members, create valuable discussions, and present governance proposals
Hopefully the tribes allow anyone to follow and participate in the discussions that they identify with and are truly interested in. While we recommend our community members join a tribe that is most suitable, it is not obligatory.
You are free to change them at any time, just like the LP’s in our DEX, we are not locking you in to a certain tribe.
Other key members of the Mangrove
In your journey through the Mangrove, you will be accompanied by your appointed Shaman Leaders composed of the Mangrove Team and other key members, all well known throughout the reaches of the forest for their humanitarian efforts in educating the members of the three tribes on programmable liquidity.
They will be assisted by the Witch Doctors, celebrated for their skills of Community Management
Anyone server boosting the Mangrove will spiritually ascend to the role of the Roots, supplying the forest with the necessary nutrients.
Have one eye open at all times as throughout the forest a mysterious helper is often seen, the Grove King, a custom bot designed by the Mangrove for performing admin tasks such as automatic retweets from Mangrove Twitter, theme messages, welcome messages, etc..
The Mangrove can be full of rewards if one dares to explore it, but the Mangrove also requires sacrifice, let’s take a look at the Rituals.
Ritual Ascensions and Participation Rewards
Building out the Mangrove requires many hands and it cannot be done alone. The Shaman Leaders are looking for the noteworthy individuals of the forests and they are seeking them within the tribes.
Ascension Rituals will be prepared in which the skills of the many tribe members will be tested… and sufficiently rewarded lest they prove worthy.
An incentivized Testnet of the Mangrove will be launched, based on your tribe and the role you play in the forest. You will be assigned quests on your path to Ascension.
Those who learn the most about the inner workings of Mangrove and educate others who seek enlightenment will reap fruitful rewards such as:
Whitelist — Guaranteed participation at the Token Generation Event [TGE]
If they choose to build their own designated strategies — additional tokens at airdrop, access to a private “big brain” discord channel.
And possibly more…
