Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.
Currently, you can only delegate admin functions using Status desktop.
Community owners have total control over their communities, including settings, membership approvals and permissions. In addition, owners can delegate administrative functions to other community members through the admin role. Admins play a similar role to owners, but with some important differences. Check out Permissions by role in Status Communities for more information.
To delegate admin functions to others, owners use token-based community permissions. Tokens are digital assets in a blockchain (such as the Ethereum blockchain), including assets (virtual coins), collectibles and ENS names.
To delegate admin functions, assign the community permission to a collectible or ENS name owner.
Using ENS names to delegate admin functions is more straightforward than using collectibles, but it requires the admin to own an ENS name.
You can create a maximum of five different community-level permissions, but you can apply a single permission to multiple members.
You can delegate admin functions to others using a collectible or an ENS name.
If you use a collectible, follow this process:
Mint a non-transferable (soulbound) and remotely-destructible collectible.
Using ENS names, you don't need to mint and airdrop any token. You delegate admin functions to a specific ENS name owner (such as alice.acme.eth) or a group of people under the same ENS domain (such as acme.eth).
Assets don't have the non-transferable (soulbound) and self-destructing properties collectibles have, making it harder to remove admin functions from other users. Avoid using assets to delegate admin functions.
