The Power of the Cooperative

The purpose of RChain is to provide its members discounted access to a decentralized, public computation platform. RChain supports the development of on-chain tools for governance and online communications that promote collaboration at scale. Our mission is to provide a platform that promotes the proliferation of social coordination technologies.

Becoming a member requires a $20 one-time fee. To maintain your membership, you have to spend at least $10 in fees once the platform launches. You are then eligible for a rebate each year based on usage (think REI).

During registration you’ll have the option of joining our Discord community. To do so you’ll go through an ID verification process, which ensures that you are who you claim to be. We protect our members by ensuring nobody impersonates someone else. Once you’re signed up, we’ll communicate with you through member newsletters to provide voting information and other essential notifications.

It’s a structure designed to make apparent to people the truth, which is that ultimately we will benefit from working together and supporting one another's success." — Nathan Schneider, author of Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition that is Shaping the Next Economy and RChain Cooperative member
