Meetups

In order to foster community engagement as well as community growth, Ardor Nxt Group will be sponsoring selected meetup groups around the world on a case-by-case basis, though some minimum requirements will be set. Sponsorship will be in the form of assistance with the meetup organizers, payment of the Meetup.com fee, as well as for some of the snacks given to attendees. Templates for materials such as brochures and leaflets for those new to Nxt and Ardor will also be given out, though printed materials may be sent as well as supply allows.

Affiliate Organizations

There have been some requests in the past regarding the creation of a Nxt Foundation branch in other parts of the world, though things were not able to move forward, for one reason or another. However, with ANG, this will be one of the primary goals as localization can be a great benefit to the community as well as to promote decentralization. Affiliate organizations, perhaps with the ANG name and the extension of the region of the members, will have some set requirements as well as benefits. These Affiliate Organizations should not be confused with the meetup groups that ANG plans to organize. Though larger meetup groups may end up creating an affiliate organization for various reasons, this will not be a requirement.

Speakers Corner

Throughout the past few years, a few Nxt and Ardor community members have spoken publicly about the technology, both to large and small groups. The effect of these public presentations or speeches have been quite beneficial to the community, so ANG will be dedicating resources to providing those interested speaking about Nxt and/or Ardor the necessary tools to do so, such as presentation templates, graphics, templated statements and some training courses, both curated from reputable external resources as well as ones customized for these topics.

Events Signup

As attending events related to blockchain have become increasingly important, ANG will dedicate resources to assisting Jelurida with finding community members to provide support at events, such as assisting at the booth, or coordinating with local organizers, especially if a specific community member is around the area of the event itself. Additionally, these members may be called upon to have a presence at an event on their own, though they will be doing so as part of ANG or one of its Affiliate Organizations. Some training resources will also be provided as with the Speakers Corner.

Business Assembly

As mentioned, ANG will also strive to create a better ecosystem for businesses that use Nxt or Ardor, whether they are using the public chain or a licensed private chain, as well as regardless of their size. These will include hosting collaborative projects, such as plugins that are needed by multiple businesses but are not able to be worked on by a single business, as well as hosting roundtable discussions. Businesses that use Nxt or Ardor however are not required to join as doing so is completely voluntary. Additional services to businesses will be explored during the interim period.
