You definitely can! When creating a Plan, you have the option to provide access by validating ownership of a specified token (along with the amount) through a connected crypto wallet.
What is a crypto wallet?
A software wallet that can be used to interact with a blockchain and decentralized applications, usually in the form of a browser extension or mobile app. MetaMask and Coinbase Wallet are two popular crypto wallet examples. Check out this helpful video on how to set up a wallet.
What is a blockchain?
A blockchain is a decentralized digital public ledger that exists to verify ownership and transactions. A popular recent example has been the emergence of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), which offer the ability for digital assets (in many cases digital art pieces) to be sold and traded just like their real-world counterparts.
While there are a number of blockchains, Ethereum is the most popular for NFTs.
What is Web3?
Web3 is a term referring to new types of online services built on top of decentralized blockchain technology. For more information, this article is a great starting point.
How would I start exploring the world of NFTs?
A common place to start is by first installing a crypto wallet (MetaMask is a good starting point), then visiting an NFT marketplace (OpenSea is a popular destination).
You can also visit OpenSea's learning center to get a step-by-step guide to purchasing a NFT.
From there, you’ll be able to easily browse and purchase NFTs (most of them existing on the Ethereum blockchain) using your crypto wallet.
How does this fit in with Mighty Networks?
This feature will allow you to “gate” entry to your Mighty Network or Plan for members that have a specific token (usually in the form of an NFT) inside their crypto wallet.
Members will be prompted to connect their crypto wallet if they haven’t done so already, at which point they’ll gain access if the proper token or token amount is found.
