Mint the Owner and TokenMaster tokens
on Jun 14, 2024

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 mint the Owner and TokenMaster tokens using Status desktop.

As a community owner, you can mint two unique tokens to administer your community: Owner and TokenMaster. Holding these tokens grants the Owner and TokenMaster roles, respectively.

With the Owner token, you have complete control over the community, including transferring your community ownership or minting other tokens.

When you mint the Owner token, you also mint the TokenMaster token in the same process. You can airdrop the TokenMaster token to other members and share the community administration workload.

To understand the function of these tokens in your community, check out Understand the Owner and Token Master tokens.

  • You must mint the Owner token for your community to import, mint or airdrop other community tokens.
  • After minting, the Owner token is automatically airdropped to your Status Wallet. You can airdrop the TokenMaster token to people you want to help administer the community.
  • The TokenMaster token holder can't transfer the token to someone else (this is commonly known as soulbound token).
  • As a community owner, you can revoke the administrative privileges associated with the TokenMaster token anytime.
If you don't mint the Owner token and your computer becomes unavailable, you lose access to your community forever. This is true even if you know your recovery phrase. In this scenario, the community remains active with minimal functionality, but without an Owner and control node (orphaned community).
