Abstract

This project aimed to help the blockchain project Amino, located in Hangzhou, China, develop their crypto-community by recommending the most common and effective practices utilized to foster a vibrant and successful crypto-community. The team researched 15 blockchain project’s community manager behaviors on the social media platforms Telegram and Medium, observed offline events in Shanghai such as CryptoMondays, and interviewed six crypto-community experts. Comparative analysis between each finding revealed that for Amino to improve their crypto-community they should host more offline events, write articles that are personable and aimed to educate the community, recruit more Admins for Telegram and engage in more conversations with their Telegram followers that are polite and responsive.
