What makes Chieve Different?
At Chieve what makes us different is that we are using web3 to bring people and communities interested in NFTs together in real life through our ChieveLive Events. It's so important today to have a platform that enables people of different backgrounds all over the world but with similar interests to come together and share, discuss and be human with one another.
From the NFT creators' point it's vital to connect with fans and make that human connection. And for the NFT enthusiast it gives them an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than themselves. To become a part of the collective. To belong.
Also by getting to know one another the NFT Creator and fan can deal directly with each other eliminating the middleman.

Chieve makes money through its brand sponsors in Entertainment, Music, Fashion, Gaming...etc. Brand sponsors can sponsor a ChieveClub or ChieveLive event for a fee.
What is the environmental impact?
Chieve uses Polygon which is a proof of stake blockchain solution. When it comes to consuming energy it's much less than other chains such as Ethereum. We aim to reduce carbon footprint.

Why web3 ?
Web3 refers to the experience where the app is decentralized (dapp) by opposition to web2 where the app is hosted by a company on their servers. Designing a web3 application allows to store data in a decentralized way and to empower the user. It allows the design of business models that do not rely on advertising or selling user data.
Why an iOS app ?
What does the app do ?
By using the app, you can build your profile (name, bio, avatar) and display your creations if you have some. These are currently fetched from the OpenSea marketplace, but other marketplaces will be supported soon.
Then you can exchange with other users about art or any topic that moves you. We have created places of expression called ChieveClubs that are made to announce or suggest a ChieveLive meeting where you can discuss, debate and explore art. Finally, users can actually meet in real life : both artists and interested users can register to a ChieveLive session very easily. You can think of the app as the modern version of a literary salon that brought so much to art and new ideas in the XVIII century.
Why not do these meetups in existing apps like Facebook or Meetup ?
ChieveClubs are actually decentralized communities. These are groups of people who can freely exchange and decide things together. There are many features we would like to add to Chieve in the next versions. It is only the beginning.
How do I start using the app ?
The only thing you need is a wallet. More and more people have a blockchain wallet but do not actually use it that much. By using our app with your wallet, you can connect and validate each operation you make on the app by signing it. You are aware of everything that is happening. Your wallet is both your means of access and your means of control.
