Description: TalentChain is a platform for self-monetization and aims to provide access to personal tokens all across the globe.

It enables “Talents” - creators or makers, to launch their own token in order to build their own digital economy, in which their communities can participate.

In this way, talented individuals like artists, streamers, gamers, crypto or web3 influencers can build their community and interact with it, by giving community members the possibility to earn and collect benefits or perks, as well as purchasing services, goods or NFTs.

Unique selling points: What makes this token unique, compared to the broader landscape of tokens?

While exploring the trends around the new creator economy, we made the following observations:

Lines between supporters & creators are blurring into community ownership while crypto plays a major role in facilitating the ownership economy.
This evolution completely changes the paradigm, as the creator becomes a platform of its own.

This new economy is enabled by an ecosystem of web3 tools, where personal tokens play a key role: they give creators control over their relationship with their supporters, enabling more direct interactions.

On the other side, the fans' support for their favorite creators becomes more than a simple act of help that wasn't previously rewarded. Supporters will do all they can to assist the creator’s success, since the creator's success would determine the token’s success leading to profit for the community of fans holding the token.

However, we also learned that they are several issues and barriers to the development of personal tokens: creating a personal token is currently costly and not user-friendly, and leveraging personal tokens is difficult for creators due to a lack of dedicated decentralized trading platforms and plug-and-play tools.

TalentChain aims at solving those issues with the following benefits:
- Affordable, user-friendly token creation
- Plug-and-play token economy features
- Direct and personalized Creator promotion through a Marketplace
- Instant, Low fee Personal Tokens trading through a Decentralized Exchange

TalentChain is rooted in the belief that openness and transparency are better for the world. That's why we are fully open-source, building in public, and on a path to progressive decentralization for the creator economy.

Purpose: What is the reason for issuing a new token, rather than using an existing? What purpose does this token serve, that is not possible with the native XRP token or other already existing tokens?

TALENT is the network's utility token.
Token holders can use TALENT to participate in governance, earn rewards by depositing TALENT into a liquidity pool, and use it to convert to and from Talent Personal Tokens.

TALENT has been created to provide liquidity to the personal tokens markets and to create an alternative market where every TALENT token can be exchanged for personal tokens from the Talent Pool Marketplace (TPM).
