Getting Started

Data runs the world. Stop giving it away for free and start earning from it.

In the world of AI, data is everything. Our mission is to decentralize and gamify the collection of high-quality training data that AI needs to accelerate forward, rewarding contributors in return. Alongside our fellow Navigators, we are building a platform that has a more sustainable, ethical, and efficient data-sourcing approach to powering the new era of AI innovation.

If you aren’t a part of the Navigate community, get started by joining our Discord and creating an account!

  1. Engaging with Navigate’s featured X post

Points will be distributed based on your engagement with this Featured Post:

  1. Labeling the daily post

In any channel in Discord, enter "/label-post" to classify (or label) an X post and earn. This will also be how you build a streak multiplier for even more earnings.

Label Post: 200

  1. Competing in the weekly Data Arena

Each week, three teams compete in a data labeling competition for a chance to win the weekly prize pool. We call this Data Arena, and you can play in either Discord or Farcaster — or both — to get extra points for the week!

There is no cap on how many datasets you can label in a day, so label away and climb that leaderboard Navigators! If your team wins for the week, you will see points from the prize pool in your dashboard.

How to Play in Discord

Simply head to the #data-arena channel in Discord and enter "/teams" to join a team and start labeling the datasets.

How to Play in Farcaster

Head to the Navigate Farcaster account (@navigate), click on the Navigate Data Arena Frame and start labeling the datasets.

If you connect both your Discord and Farcaster account, you can play on either platform – or both in the same week. All of your points earned – no matter which platform you use to play – will be reflected in your Social Surfer dashboard.

At the end of each week, the teams will reset and you can join a new team to participate in the weekly Data Arena competition.

  1. Referring friends

Every time you refer a new user you earn points, a multiplier, a commission on the points your referral earns and a commission on the points their referrals earn. Go refer friends to climb the leaderboard and earn more!

Each Referral: 1,000

Multiplier: This multiplier starts at 1.18 and increases by 0.18 with every new referral (max multiplier of 10x). An important note: if you don’t refer someone new after seven days, your multiplier will disappear. You must refer at least one new user each week to keep your multiplier.

Commissions: Earn 20% of your referral’s earnings and 10% of their referral’s earnings. The more your referrals earn, the more you earn.

  1. Multipliers

Multipliers stack together to supercharge your earnings. You can earn multipliers by consistently labeling the daily post (earning a streak), referring users, joining the Discord early, and being affiliated with our partner communities. Follow us on X to learn more about new multipliers!
