As a community owner in Status, you can use tokens to create different access levels within your community. These levels apply to both the community overall and individual channels within it. This approach helps to keep your community engaging and organized.
For example, you can use tokens to organize a conference with community access limited to token holders and exclusive channels just for speakers. If you are an artist or content creator, you can set up a community for your fans and give certain fans access to exclusive channels where you release new content.
The options are many, allowing you to create an environment tailored to your community's needs. For more examples of using tokens to provide exclusive access to your community, check out Token-based access to communities and channels.
If you use a Status Community to organize a conference or event, you might want a community open to all interested individuals. Yet, you also need a space just for the speakers.
With tokens, you can limit access to your community only to the individuals invested in the conference topic. Additionally, you can create an exclusive channel within the community, only accessible to the event speakers. This provides a platform for them to discuss and collaborate on the conference preparation.
You start minting the community tokens you need to organize the event. In this particular example, we consider a general-access token for attendees and a VIP-access token only for speakers.
You may want to configure these permissions as follows:
