The franki
locals fund

What is the franki locals fund?

The fund was built to support local people who share their experiences of local spots through video. Because franki isn’t just a way to decide where to eat or drink – it’s a community of local foodies and explorers around the country that anyone can turn to when they want to live like a local. Our locals support their community, so we want to support them

How does it work?

Our fund gives our passionate locals the opportunity to get rewarded monthly for continuing to make
helpful content, and for building their own community on franki. Once selected to be a part of the
franki locals fund, members are rewarded for:
Each helpful video posted
Engagement that they drive and their content drive (views, likes, comments and shares)

Each new follower they gain

Each new user that installs the app and creates a franki account (limited to one account per person)
In addition to earning rewards for the individual activities laid out above, users can earn bonuses for
exceptional contributions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each month, all franki locals who have earned rewards will be credited straight into their franki wallet, which can be directly linked to their bank account. This makes it simple and easy to cash out directly into their preferred account. We will also be providing ongoing reports of what locals have earned and the breakdown of those earnings. Important to note: we may not be able to connect to all bank accounts, credit unions in particular, as this is facilitated by a secured third party called Plaid.

We follow a set of principles to guide how our bonuses will be rewarded:

  • Helpfulness
    – Helpful locals and content is defined as that which is honest, trustworthy, and helps other users make decisions

  • Community
    – Both within franki and in the real world, aimed at encouraging our locals to actively build their community, through continued engagement and following

  • Exploration
    – Whether it be trying new places or trying new styles of content, we want to continually reward our locals for pushing the boundaries of what’s possible of what it means to be a franki local

Once you have met the minimum requirements and submitted your information, both outlined above. Our team will review your content and profile, then we will reach out if you are successful in being selected. Although we would like to let everyone join, we have a limited number of spots available within the fund. We will do our best to select the users who have best met, or gone above and beyond, the minimum requirements and have shown to uphold the values of our franki locals community.
