Abstract: Monetization of community contributions is a way to promote community development. The existing solution, implemented on the Internet, requires that the platform’s manager controls the distribution and use of community tokens (i.e., currency issued by private or institutional entities), which hinders community development. In this paper, we propose a method to motivate community members to make contributions. The proposed method primarily relates to token allocation, voting, trading, and community arbitration based on tokens and votes. It transforms the contribution of the community into cryptocurrency, and the tokens’ owners are positively correlated with the contributions they make; this concept effectively reflects contribution to the community. The voting results reflect the will of the community. The deposit model defines supply requirements for the tokens. Finally, we use statistics on the use of gas with smart contracts. The results show that the average cost of gas is currently around 70 000, and the cost of gas with the proposed method is less.

Key words: blockchain, smart contract, community, vote
