Welcome to Co-Create, the collaborative heartbeat of StoryCo. Here, your distinctive talent has the opportunity to become part of something greater. By contributing creatively to stories on our platform, you not only help to enrich ongoing narratives, but also get a chance to own a share of them.



What is a StoryCo “Co-Create”?

A "Co-Create" is an invitation to participate in the creation of key elements of our stories. Co-creates will span the realm of artistic expression, from creative writing to illustrating, animating to acting. Co-creators will have the opportunity to create new characters, animate scenes, be a voice actor for a character in the narrative, and more.

Why does StoryCo offer Co-Creation opportunities?

We’ve developed our Co-Create system in order to harness the networked creativity of our community. We believe that stories are living entities that grow and thrive with the input of different perspectives and voices, and that the centralized, gate-kept mode of producing them is a thing of the past. By offering Co-Creation opportunities, we aim to create rich, ever-evolving story worlds that grow and expand organically through the networked creativity of our community.

How does the Co-Create process work?

**The Co-Creation process works as follows:

Application Submission: Interested creators should submit an original work following the creative considerations and submission guidelines of the co-create. Our creative team will review all submitted applications, considering creative proficiency and alignment with the creative and submission guidelines.

Review & Selection: The creator whose work best meets the criteria will be contacted regarding the winning submission and provided with feedback on their work. This may involve discussions on refining the concept, making adjustments, or seeking clarifications to ensure the submission aligns with the vision of the character, episode, and franchise.

Feedback & Finalization: The creator will work closely with the core team to finalize the artistic work, incorporating the feedback and making any necessary revisions.

Story Integration: Once finalized, the approved submission will be integrated into the story, as outlined on the co-create submission page.

Crediting and Recognition: The artist whose work is featured in the story will be appropriately credited and recognized for their contributions via our compendium that is ever-present as people engage with the story.

Will artists be compensated for bounties?

Absolutely! An artist whose work is selected through our review process will be duly compensated with a combination of three forms of payment:

  • USD (or USDC)
  • Profit Points
  • NFTs

The exact combination of these modes of compensation will be unique to each co-create and will be clearly specified at the top of the Co-Create description. Each Co-Create may offer compensation in one, two, or all three forms, depending on the specific needs and nature of the co-create.

What are “Profit Points”?

“Profit Points” are the foundation of the reward system StoryCo has developed to allow creators and fans the ability to share in the upside potential of IP created on the platform. Profit Points, quite simply, represent a claim to a percentage of the profit generated by the underlying IP and are awarded for meaningful contributions to the story universes.

Who is eligible to submit their work for Co-Creates?

Co-Creates are open to anyone, regardless of location, background, or level of experience. At StoryCo, we believe creativity can come from anyone, anywhere and our aim is to foster an environment where the only determinant of success is the strength of your work and ideas.

Can I collaborate with someone on a Co-Creation?

Certainly! Collaboration is welcomed and encouraged for submissions. If you are actively seeking a creative collaborator, you can visit ourDiscord and check out the categories within our “Showcase” channel to connect with like-minded creatives.

Are there specific guidelines I should follow when creating content for a co-create?

Yes, each Co-create includes a detailed description of the desired creative output, information about how that work will layer into the larger narrative, a variety of creative references, and any necessary contextual information in relation to the larger story.

Is there a submission deadline for each co-create?

Yes, each co-create has a specific submission deadline which will be clearly indicated at the top of the co-create listing. We encourage you to submit your work before the deadline to ensure your contribution is considered.

How will my work be evaluated for the co-create?

All submissions will be reviewed by our internal creative team who will evaluate each entry based on artistic merit, originality, and alignment with the submission guidelines and story. As the story progresses and evolves, our plan is to decentralize this decision-making process, allowing community members to vote on the submissions that resonate with them.

How is my work integrated into the story after its finalized?

Once a winner (or winners) are announced, they will be given creative notes, and their final work will be integrated into the larger narrative by our internal production team.

Will I receive recognition for my work? How will I be credited?

Of course. If your work is selected and integrated into a story, you will be recognized appropriately and credited in the compendium which will appear contextually within the story alongside your creative work.

Can I submit work for more than one co-create? If so, how does that process work?

Yes, you can submit work for more than one co-create. The process remains the same - review the co-create listings, follow the creative guidelines, and submit your work before the deadline. Each co-create is considered independently, so your submissions for different bounties should also be independent and unique to each specific creative challenge.

Profit Points

What are Profit Points?

“Profit Points” are the foundation of the reward system StoryCo has developed to allow creators and fans the ability to share in the upside potential of IP created on the platform. Profit Points, quite simply, represent a claim to a percentage of the profit generated by the underlying IP and are awarded for meaningful contributions to the story universes.

How can I earn Profit Points?

How is the number of Profit Points for each Co-Create determined?

The number of Profit Points awarded for each Co-Creation or action is determined by a system that considers level of effort, time, and value to the narrative as a whole. This system will ensure a fair assessment of each contribution to our shared story. There will be a total of 500 million Profit Points reserved for creators and contributors to THE DISCO BALL, representing 50% of StoryCo’s total profit from the the IP.

How does the profit distribution work?

Every person who initiates a claim will need to go through a KYC process. More information about this process can be found in our terms and conditions here.

What would qualify as a monetization event?

Monetization events can encompass a wide-range of events from the story IP, including a film or television licensing deal, NFT mint revenue, merchandise sales, and the full sale of the story IP to an external stakeholder.

How do I receive my monetary compensation in the wake of a monetization event?

After a successful profit event, qualifying Profit Point holders must go through the KYC process to redeem their points for monetary compensation.

Can I transfer or sell my Points?

Points are non-transferable, signifying your unique stake in the future profits of the story. This means they cannot be sold or transferred to anyone else, reflecting their exclusive connection to your personal contribution.

Where can I see my Points?

All earned Points will be added to a user’s StoryCo profile, which you can access by logging in on the StoryCo platform with your email address at

Can I lose my Profit Points?
