Expected Returns
What kind of returns can a sponsor expect?
Talent Protocol is not primarily about generating profits, although that can often happen: it’s about a group of people working aligned towards the same goal.
Talent Protocol enables 3 different types of returns:
    A market-driven ROI for sponsors
    A utility-centric ROI for sponsors
    A return for society

1. Return On Investment (market-driven)

By using an adapted structure of the market economy, talent and sponsors have a ready-built mechanism for accountability, and measuring success that is easy to understand. The price of a Talent Token serves as a benchmark for someone’s current value and future potential. The higher the price, the more optimistic the sponsors are.
Sponsors can always sell a portion of their Talent Tokens at any point in time (subject to flow controls), and make a profit if the talent they invested in becomes more valuable.
If you're still a bit skeptical about all this, please read the FAQ we have for new sponsors.

2. Return On Investment (utility-centric)

When sponsors buy and hold Talent Tokens, they're not only investing in a talent financially but also subscribing to their career journey, and gaining access to additional services and benefits.
Depending on the talent you are sponsoring, Talent Tokens can have different use cases, like being redeemable for time of the owner or giving the sponsor access to private content, calls or events.

3. Return For Society

Talent Tokens allow sponsors to become an active part of someone's career, by owning a piece of their economy, and allows them to grow together with their favorite talent.
Talent Protocol can be a form of crowdfunding, so it might not always be your intention to recoup all your money. You could simply use Talent Protocol as a donation platform and keep your Talent Tokens as a proof of early support. Imagine being able to say you are an early investor in the next Malala Yousafzai?
Or the talent that received support from you might one day decide to show appreciation for their early believers and decide to buy back all Talent Tokens at a much higher price? The possibilities are unlimited.
