In the web3 world, “Grinding for allowlists” (ALs) is the act of throwing large amounts of energy and effort into “being seen” so that you can receive outsized benefits ahead of a public sale.
There are many varieties of it around.
Grinding for ALs is unhealthy.
Here’s a healthy alternative:
1) Let there be a healthy benefit to being early
Unhealthy: Needing to be early mostly for frenetic flipping opportunities.
Healthy: Special ‘extras’ for being early, no freneticism required.
Eg: Mortiverse has a line-up of special extras that all minters will get for holding.
2) Let there be a healthy alternative to being early
Unhealthy: If you’re not ‘on the list’, you panic and grind harder.
Healthy: List or no list, minting & secondary purchases have huge value for you.
Eg: Mortiverse season NFTs unlock personal development cartoons, list or no list.
3) Let ‘being seen’ mean more than time & noise
Unhealthy: Racing to outwork your peers, regardless of what the reward is.
Healthy: Simply revealing you’re a good fit & will benefit from holding.
Eg: Mortiverse simply watches for those who want to invest in personal growth.
There are usually healthy options available.
You simply need to lead with a heart of service and a commitment to do better.
And to follow others who lead that way.
