Discord for dummies: 3 things Tradies are talking about

clock 3 months ago

Tradies is an On The Tools brand on Discord, built with the vision of onboarding 1 million Tradespeople into the world of web3.

For too long the trade has been the forgotten ones, and in our eyes, often unsupported and left behind without the same opportunities as the ‘white collar’ world. We’re going to change that!

Built with the values and trust that On The Tools has built over the years, this is a community-focused project that will give holders access to real-life events, merch, giveaways and future seasons in our multi-drop ecosystem.

Here are three things about the Discord platform that the Tradies community is talking about right now…


Discord describes servers as ‘an invite-only home for your friends or community – a place where you can talk, hang out, and have fun’. The servers are made up of text channels, which keep the conversations organised. It doesn’t stop there though; Discord also supports voice chat and video chat.

Some chat channels on the Tradies Discord server include petrolheads, sports, giveaways, and a space for tradespeople to find and follow other tradespeople. Check it out here.

Claim your roles

Tagging an emoji on certain messages in the ‘claim your roles’ text channel on the Tradies server will allocate a role to your user profile. Rewards will also be given to those who contribute often in the server.

Over 250 members of the Tradies community have already signed up for the OG Tradie role: only available to early members of the community. Want to become an OG Tradie? Join the Discord here.

Ask a mod

Moderators play a crucial role in Discord communities. Administrators can appoint moderators to make sure the server stays a safe, healthy environment for everyone. Discord says, ‘they can do things like moderate or delete messages, as well as invite, ban, or suspend people who violate the server’s rules.’

The Tradies server has a dedicated space where anyone can ask our mods anything about Tradies, Discord, or NFTs, and we’ll do our best to help you out.


Enough reading, it’s time to join in! Find the discord here.
