Currency with a Conscience™

Praise is a social currency and NFT community focused on joy, self-expression, and love. Our first project is a set of 8,000 unique, programmatically generated NFT characters called the Praise Pals™. The Pals blend digital expression with real-world experiences.

If you're into World of Women, Doodles, and Punks—you'll want a Pal.

The Praise Story

The world is at a crossroads. Technology now enables us to live, create, and transact without borders. Our Founder, Jesse Tevelow, has spent most of his life building companies. First a game company. Then a marketing agency. And now Praise. He has experienced horrible tragedies in his life, like all of us. Pain and joy bind us. So while we are here on Earth, let's have fun, celebrate ourselves, and elevate together. We all deserve Praise, just for being alive.

Our network token, $PRAISE, is emitted to the community every 24 hours based on each user's activity and the NFTs they hold.

Shared Rewards

We share revenue with our community programmatically on a daily schedule in the form of $PRAISE rewards. The more engaged you become in the network, the more $PRAISE you receive.

Unique Events

We've built relationships in Hollywood for over a decade and secured LOI partnerships with brands like RockMafia—the music collective that reps John Legend, Ariana Grande, and other household names. Expect partner drops and sponsored events in the future.

Highly Secure

We use blockchain tech to ensure transactions are fast, cheap, and secure.

A Truly Social Currency

As Web3 goes mainstream, companies are hoping to turn their existing networks into social currency networks, but it never works. You can't just add money into Facebook or add a social network into the Cash app. We need something new.

That's why we're building the Praise mobile app. Not a social network. Not a bank. Just a positively-aligned community that derives value from itself.

The $PRAISE token emissions engine is a blockchain-powered incentive mechanism for anything.
