The Channel s0 token features scrying stones inscribed with recombinations of the three founding communities' internal iconography. Key symbols from their respective online spheres—by nature ephemeral and all the more so with the impermanence of digital platforms—are collaged here and engraved in rock. Intended to be less of a precious gem than a marker in time, these combo-emblems represent the foundational infrastructure being built stone by stone, beginning with this series.
Holding the s0 Founder token grants open-ended access to all Channel content, which initially includes an RSS bundling the Joshua Citarella, Interdependence, and New Models podcasts. It also gives entry to the Founder region of the Channel Discord, a direct line to the Channel creators and developers, and a voice in the project's evolution toward a fully decentralized protocol.
