As a members-only community, ARC is connecting the most impactful and influential in the Global Asian Diaspora to contribute ideas, resources and networks towards a first-of-its-kind Social Venture Studio. Our long-term vision and shared purpose is to have our community be at the frontier of pushing the Web3 space in Asia forward through collective value creation via our Social Venture Studio.
If you are anyone who wants to connect with someone in Asia, ARC is the community to go to with the human connections you need. But we’re not stopping at connecting people. We are taking the next step to really look at how we can unleash the potential from these connections to create value.
The formation of the ARC Social Venture Studio is a way for us to channel these connections made into the creation of purposeful value. We will retain what makes private members’ clubs appealing by building a highly-connected, thriving community experience and layering it with NFTs to coordinate the interests of our members towards the projects that derive from the Social Venture Studio.
By tapping on NFTs as proof of membership, we have created a mechanism that incentivises members to engage in productive community engagements and contributions through turning our membership into a digital asset.
In this way, ARC is designed to be a long-term hold that rewards members in the long-term through the future collections and projects that come out from the ARC Social Venture Studio (vs flipping the membership NFT itself).
To ensure success for the community, we’re actively curating our members to create a diverse collective that is aligned with our ethos around ‘giving value to receive value’ and building the right infrastructure (ARC app and ARC Playgrounds) to facilitate them connecting and coming together to create value.
In the long-term, we see the ARC brand everywhere from digital products, consumer-packaged goods, to physical spaces and IRL experiences. We want our community to get to a state where self-organising is the natural state of things and members can come together to create projects that go everywhere, even (potentially!) the metaverse. Value creation is constantly happening and this value is equitably distributed based on members’ contributions to the community.
This is ARC. This is Community Rediscovered.
