# Memberships

Inside Commercio.network we designed a system to make sure to have a network of trusted participants.

To do so we've implemented a membership system which allows you to buy a membership to display to everyone that you've been invited by an already verified members to join the network.

# Buying a membership

Memberships can be bought exclusively on chain. To do so you are required to possess and spend an amount of Commercio Cash Credits (CCC) greater or equal to the price of the membership you wish to buy.

# Requirements

In order to buy a membership, the following requirements must be met:

  1. You must have been invited by a user already having a Bronze membership or superior.
    Please refer to the invitation procedure page to know more about invitations.
  2. You must possess a sufficient amount of CCCs to buy a membership.
    Please refer to the proper page to know more about how to get CCCs out of your Commercio Tokens.

The system will prevent sending an invite to an account with a balance greater than zero across CCCs and/or Commercio token.

# Buying process

Once you've met all the requirements, you can buy a membership by performing a buying transaction.
After doing so, you will be able to verify your membership status using the membership query feature.

# Invitation process

The invitation process is the first su-process of the accreditation procedure. which allows you to invite a new user to join Commercio.network so that you can later be rewarded if he later buys a membership.

# Requirements

Suppose that you want to invite another user and later receive a reward once he buys a membership. Then, the following requirements must be met:

  • You must already have bought a membership.
  • You must know the user's identity that he has created by following the specific guide.

# Inviting a user

Once all the above requirements have been met, you can invite the user by performing an invitation transaction.

Once done, you will be automatically rewarded when the user buys a new membership.

# Membership types

The currently supported memberships and their prices are the following.

TIP

Please note that each price is expressed using Commercio Cash Credit as measurement unit.

Membership Identifier Price
Bronze bronze 25
Silver silver 250
Gold gold 2500
Black black 50000

# Rewards values

The reward value given to you is based on your membership type and the membership that any user you've accreditated buys.

Invitee / Invited Bronze Silver Gold Black
Bronze 1.25 25 375 5'000
Silver 5 75 1'000 12'500
Gold 12.5 150 1'750 20'000
Black 17.5 200 2'250 25'000

Please note that the number of rewards is capped to a maximum of 12.5 millions tokens. After all the tokens have been distributed, any following invite will not be rewarded anymore.
