The objective of the Creator Framework is provide a community-based system for participation in a decentralized media ecosystem where creators get rewarded for effort and attention.


Each of us at Rug Radio are doing our part to build the world where we decide on our own narrative. For this space, our generation and the future. In order for that to become a reality, we are building Rug Radio to be a free and open, media organization founded on a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) where the community comes together to shape the narrative and own the memes of production.

This document is a foundational set of values that we strive to adhere to as a collective.

The objective of the Creators Framework is to provide a community-based system for participation in a decentralized media ecosystem where creators and participants get rewarded for effort and attention.

Creator Network Guidelines

Personal Sovereignty and Responsibility Recognize the power to shape the world into a culture of freedom, equity, and abundance for all groups of people. We recognize the power we have to shape the world and we make an effort in all that we do to uphold a culture of freedom and abundance. Within this we take responsibility for our actions and always strive to participate from a place of kindness and empathy.

Community-Centric Values for Maximum Benefit to All Each individual is sovereign, we are interdependent and the good for the community is also our own benefit and responsibility.

This means that while each individual is sovereign, we all also recognize that we are interdependent and the good of the community is also our own benefit and responsibility. It means that the community works together to steer the ship and build the world we all want to live in.

Decentralization of Power and Wealth Create systems that decentralize power and wealth to individuals. We use crypto technology and our structural frameworks to ensure that we maintain a DAO that strives towards decentralization.
