$WHALE Discord Server Roles

Roles available and how to claim them

Members of a Discord server — in this case $WHALE — are granted various permissions and access to channels based on the combination of roles assigned to them.

Upon entering the $WHALE server, new arrivals are asked to self-claim the “Member” role. This will allow the new members to access the “general” category channels within the server, including the “Stream-Text” and “Voice” channels where most of the informational interviews and events are held.

In this post we are going to explain:

  1. How to claim a role on the $WHALE server
  2. What each of the roles does
  3. How to maintain your roles
WHALE Discord Server — Role Categories and Names

Current WHALE (H2P) role HOLD requirements

The hold-to-play roles are maintained by keeping a token amount of $WHALE in your own wallet. Each month, the amount required to maintain the role increases — known as an “escalation”. The purpose of this is to encourage HODLing and community over short-term profit-seeking.

Hold to Play (H2P) Role — Monthly WHALE Requirements


  1. Hold the required amount for the role you are claiming in your personal, self-custodial MetaMask or Trust Wallet (note: other web3 browser wallets may work). The required amounts for the roles are given in the table above.
  2. Type !verify in the #bot-commands channel on Discord and follow the instructions given in the Direct Message (DM) from the nft42 bot.

⚠️ Important note if you are using a phone:

You will need to:

  • CLICK the link that you received in DM
  • COPY the address in the address bar
  • PASTE into your MetaMask or Trust browser
  • COMPLETE the setup process from there.
Copy and paste the nft42 bot link here to your MetaMask browser if you are using a phone

The roles do not stack, so if you want all three roles, you’ll need all three individual HOLD amounts totalled together.

4. Check for the newly opened #dolphins, #shark, and/or #whale channels and introduce yourself!

Members can stake their $WHALE to get a voice in the governance of the community!

  • “DAO-WHALE” role holders only may present proposals for voting.
  • Proposals are first voted on in the “House”.
  • Everyone with a H2P role can vote in the House (it’s not mandatory, though highly encouraged).
  • If passed in the House, the proposal then moves to the ‘Senate’, where DAO-WHALES and DAO-VOTERS may vote.
  • If passed in the Senate, the proposal is enacted. Currently, WhaleShark and the team reserve the right to veto passing Senate proposals while the DAO is in its formative stages. This power will dissipate as the $WHALE DAO matures.

🔵 DAO-Voter

  • The current DAO-VOTER subscription collateral is 500 $WHALE (locked until 31st December 2021).

🔵 DAO-Whale

  • The current DAO-WHALE subscription collateral is 1000 $WHALE (locked until 31st December 2021).

The claim process for B20 is outlined above in the WHALE section of this guide “How to claim”. At step 3, simply type !claim b20 to obtain the role and gain access to the channel. Remember, you’ll need a connected wallet with at least 1x B20 token in it to claim the role successfully.
