Despite the advantages and intrinsic fairness of life in a decentralized world, good information is fragmented and even the best projects can be passed over if they don’t get needed attention from jump.
As anyone who has attempted to navigate the landscape of crypto can attest, messaging is spread far and wide. For those seeking even the most basic knowledge, there are endless social media outlets espousing the virtues of their favorite chain, project or technology. Ordinary people can find it overwhelming and often resign themselves to being exposed to a mere glimpse of what is out there.
For marketers, it is similarly problematic. Even the most qualified are often siloed and entirely left to their own devices as they labor to reach an overwhelmed audience. There are just too many flags planted in the ground and not enough cooperation and cohesion in the message. Islander has set out to change this through the creation of the ISA token paired with a rather inventive “learn-to-earn” model.
This is a project that is a long time coming; having been forged over the course of many months through friendship and a basic desire to make the space better. For Avalaunch as a platform, we have noted the genuine strides Islander has made in recent months—from both a business and technical perspective. Their raise overall is modest as it is a grassroots projects so initially, despite our relationship and support, we wondered if an IDO would be possible.
Not wanting to raise more than what they need, a boutique style offering was created for the Avalaunch community totaling $300,000 USD worth of ISA. We thought it might be a great time to show appreciation and support for the community as well as the Islander initiative and purchase this allocation for our second IDE (Initial Distribution Event).
To that end, the Islander public sale has been purchased by Avalaunch and will be distributed at no cost to our devoted community through our second IDE (Initial Distribution Event). The IDE will operate similarly to our IDOs, minus any costs to the participant.
But wait…there’s more!
In addition to the Islander allocation, Avalaunch will be adding $300,000 USD worth of XAVA to the IDE, bringing the total up to $600,000 of pooled assets.
At its core, Islander is a decentralized affiliate marketing program that is powered by NFTs and intent upon revolutionizing the legacy affiliate model via its learn-to-earn mechanics. Central to this proposition is the native token Islander (“ISA”), which serves multiple purposes:
- To help projects discover, grow and maintain an audience of bonafide supporters.
- Allow key opinion leaders the opportunity to leverage their combined marketing power and earn.
- Create earning opportunities for content creators.
Additionally Islander provides:
- Intuitive toolkits for users to manage multiple projects
- Full support for developers
- Wallets, plugins and management apps
- A payment gateway platform
A permissionless, share and earn proposition that is powered by NFTs could represent a boon for crypto projects, content creators, marketers and enthusiasts alike. If there ever was a grassroots, community-driven project building on Avalanche, this may well be it. The Islander team is driven and spirited. Their raise is modest in size but their ambitions are by no means small.
Islander — Links & Team
Partners and Backers:
Naturally, a project that aims to aggregate content creators, key opinion leaders and the litany of qualitative contributors to the crypto ecosystem, it stands to reason that those they are working with is a good indicator of their development.
Their list of Avalanche ecosystem partners and backers is also considerable:
“Avalaunch has always been our most trusted partner from Day 1 of this journey. We are very happy to finally work with Mark, Dave and the team not only in this IDO, but also in many other activities in the future. Islander and Avalaunch both value honesty and integrity and these shared values will undoubtedly ensure a long-term partnership between us,” states Viet Anh Tran, Founder and CEO of Islander.
The idea of aggregating marketing power and community is not lost on us—we are, after all, only as good as our community and the projects they embrace. Islander has come a long way in a relatively short period of time as evidenced by the inroads they have made in the Avalanche community along with some notable fundamental progress. Having had the fortune of knowing them for many months, they have matured to the point where we feel they are ready for launch.

Islander IDE Instructions
As this sale is unique, the steps to participate will look slightly different than our regular IDOs.
You will register for the IDE as normal during the registration period. You will still need the 1 AVAX deposit, which will be returned to you during the claim process.
There will not be a validator or staking round where you purchase your allocation. To be eligible for your ISA and XAVA allocation, all you need to do is register with your stake or validator as normal.
We will deploy a claim card on our airdrop page for you to claim your allocation, instead of you needing to purchase it during the sale. This means you don’t need AVAX to purchase or deal with gas fees during the IDE.
4. Redemption Details
When the claim card is live, you will be able to claim your allocated ISA, XAVA and 1 AVAX deposit in one single transaction.
