The Praise Pals™

The Praise Pals™ are a set of 8,000 funky avatar characters who symbolize curiosity, freedom, and love. Unlike most projects, character assets are designed from real people who join our community or attend our live events.

You'll earn daily $PRAISE (our network cryptocurrency) for holding a Pal. Pals can also vote on future events and initiatives. Our mission is simple—to bring more joy to the world. A portion of revenues from Praise events will fund acts of kindness and good causes chosen by the Pals.

Real Events

We've been building relationships in Hollywood for over a decade, so we're in touch with some of the top media and entertainment brands in the world.

The Praise Pals™ will get to vote on upcoming events and initiatives. Take a look at our launch party video for a taste of the vibe 🤟🏻

Real Value

Your Praise Pal™ will continue to evolve, unlocking new experiences at our physical events and in the metaverse.

Eventually, you'll also be able to buy, sell, and trade the unique items your avatar is wearing. This will create a whole new virtual economy—not to mention a window into the self-expression of humanity in the form of silly cartoons! Get on the bus!

What is $PRAISE?

$PRAISE is our native cryptocurrency. Every 24 hours, more $PRAISE is emitted to our NFT holders. The membership card is the first NFT that unlocks everything else. Think of it as a VIP member pass. $PRAISE reward amounts also change based on your engagement. The more value you bring to the network, the more $PRAISE you'll earn.

Membership Perks

To own a Praise Pal™, you'll need the Praise Member Experience™ card, a membership NFT that pays you. Benefits will include...

  • Earn $PRAISE automatically on a daily schedule
  • Get whitelisted for our NFT Avatar community
  • Get whitelisted for the beta release of the Praise mobile app (Q2, 2022)

You'll get token bonuses in $PRAISE based on the rarity of your Praise Pal™. The clothes on your avatar will eventually be exchangeable, and you'll get VIP treatment at our live events.
