just got worth it.
Take your incentives to the next level. Turn your projects into community collaborations.
Engage audiences and build community.
Ditch the Big Tube middleman. PELE puts the power of storytelling back into our hands.
PELE Network doesn't make content--it facilitates creative collaborations, offers tools for community incentivization, and keeps registries for reputation and creator verification.
Tools to organize stories, gather resources, and get them done.
Anyone can generate value with PELE by working with others. Use the PELE Portal to move forward with a project regardless of budget, experience, or genre.
Our free interactive primer on storytelling teaches you how to explore your idea and tell your project's story. Save your progress to use later and collaborate with others.
The PELE Portal offers different modes for organizing and uploading your footage so you can collaborate with other creatives in the network.
With PELE, content creation is a networking activity. Attract creative partners, sponsors, or talent. Build a reputation portfolio for your work.
Strengthen your community with badges.
Badges are non-transferrable wallet tokens that represent experience with different creators and communities.
Through interwoven webs of trust made possible with blockchain technology, communities can use badges to partner and cross-pollinate audience members.
Bring groups together with tokenized projects.
A PFT is a stake in the success of a project. As a creator, you can offer PFTs of your project to incentivize gig workers, patrons or collaborators that want to be a part of the process.
PFTs are hype vehicles. Offer them as access to public NFT raffles, a chance to meet the star of the film, community portfolio badges, and more.
Community-powered, blockchain-fortified, NFT-friendly.
Communities generate value, not agendas—scammers, trolls, and social polarization will find no traction here.
Powered by the Zilliqa blockchain, PELE acts as a registry to validate the authenticity of digital assets for audiences, including reputation.

PLVRS Genesis-Era NFTs
The PLVRS is a multidimensional cartoon bringing awareness to decentralized protocols.
Genesis-Era NFTs give holders access to PLVRS production activities, special events, and more.
Genesis-Era Story Set
The Genesis-Era Story Set NFTs are rare collectibles. Their first owners will be eligible for PELE Network Early Adopter badges and the incentives they offer in the PELE Network ecosystem.
"Once upon a time there was a sad little Hodly..."
He was just trying to make his way in the universe, simply. But living within the confines of Big Tube was too restrictive for him to thrive creatively, or even make a living, and so he wandered. Lost and lonely in a hazy, monotonous dystopic reality that had been feeding him...
"...but it was community that saved us."
While the PELE lightning made them ever more powerful and resilient, in the end it was not PELE that saved them, but themselves, rising up together to tell their stories. It was the community that arose from decentralization that saved them, not the technology itself.
Genesis-Era PLVRS Pilot Set
The PLVRS will be a crowdsourced and NFT-powered project which will be open-source for the community to play with. Most funds raised in this category are allocated towards the pilot episode of the PELEverse cartoon web series.
Genesis-Era Character Collections
Owning PLVRS NFTs gives you different opportunities to participate in the web series, play voices, help write episode stories, get producer credits, choose sponsors, join special promotional events, and much more.

Genesis-Era Character Teams
Character Teams will be used to group together community members of the PELE Network and gamify different elements of the interactive PLVRS. Some characters may be drawn at random to participate as extras in an episode (like the Sorting Hat in Harry Potter), and others could be formulated using the Storytelling Guide.
PLVRS Prototype Collection
Get your hands on these limited edition mockups of PLVRS characters illustrated by acclaimed artist Ro Dion. All proceeds go to him.
Why is a PELE token even necessary?
PELE is a developing Decentralized Autonomous Organization. This means that the company is a network of individuals that governs itself without central leadership. The PELE token binds together the community by offering holders the ability to vote in how the network chooses to operate and move forward.
Who runs PELE?
PELE is being bootstrapped by PELE Network, LLC (formerly PELEIO, LLC) and a contributing community of believers. As a legal entity registered in the state of Wyoming, the LLC will eventually be converted into a legalized Decentralized Autonomous Organization, owned fully by PELE token holders.
More about us is on the About page.
Are you trying to replace Big Tube?
Yes and no. We believe Big Tube should indeed be decentralized throughout the world, and for that reason we recommend creators host their own independent content platforms so they can retain control of their content and audience relationships.
PELE does not host viewable content for creators; it acts as a tool that allows creators to build community with their audiences and get content made on even a shoestring budget.
I'm a creative but not really a creator. Can I find work on PELE?
Yes! With the PELE Portal, services can be offered or received for any part of a content creation and video storytelling process. You will also be able to use badges and PFTs to build reputation amongst other creatives and creators.
You can also find work with PELE, as we aim to be a decentralized endeavor and our team is always open for your input.
What can I do with PELE tokens?
PELE is only just getting started, so all our functionality is in its early stages. When the PELE Portal Beta goes live, you'll be able to redeem your PELE tokens for content creation services.
As we continue to raise money for development, new functionality will be unlocked:
- As a client, find and pay talent for help in any stage of production
- As a creative, strengthen your offer of talent commitment with a bid
- Slice new PFTs
- Buy and sell PFTs
- Stake into specific topics or projects to become a patron that receives PFTs
- Buy and sell NFTs minted exclusively through the network of PELE creators
How do I buy PELE Tokens?
PELE tokens will be available as soon as the first version of the PELE Portal Beta has been completed. Help us speed up this process by buying some genesis-era digital merch.
Can you elaborate on what PFTs are?
PFTs are minted in pools of 100 and so have an element of scarcity by default. Fans, sponsors, and collaborators are encouraged by the content creator to buy or trade for a share of the project's PFTs. A creator can fill an escrow to prove their skin in the game and provide some collateral for PFT holders.
PFTs can be used for many things. While a project is live, PFTs can be used as raffle tickets, as access to special opportunities or exclusive content, or bought and sold with $PELE. Smart creators will collaborate with PFT holders to increase the value of the PFT.
PFTs are burned upon redemption, lowering the total supply of the live project's PFT and increasing the scarcity of those that remain. When the project has been completed, those still holding the project's PFT can cash out to receive their proportional share of the escrow OR they can work with the creator to convert their PFTs into a new badge for their portfolio, signalling to the network that they had participated in that project.

I've never used a cryptocurrency wallet, will this be difficult?
No. Whether you know nothing about cryptocurrency or you are Satoshi Nakamoto himself, we have tried to make it easy and comfortable for you to get you some PELE. It might even teach you a thing or two!
How are PELE tokens being distributed?
We've set a 25% cap of $PELE's total supply to be publicly available starting in Q3 2021, for sale to early adopters of the community in order to bootstrap participation.
Another 50% (including founder tokens) will be locked in an escrow to be released when the decentralized network and DAO is launched. This 50% of tokens will be represented by PELE-PFTs. Each PELE-PFT will be redeemable for 0.5% of the total PELE token supply upon the launch of the PELE DAO, and will also be available for exchange pre-launch.
25% of the total $PELE supply will be reserved for the PELE DAO and decentralized treasury to later move the community forward.
Please read the PELE White Paper for more detailed information, and contact us if you would like to be part of PELE.
