Welcome to the Umba Daima community! You should know, healthy NFT communities are fluid, cooperative and sharing. The Umba Daima community embodies all of these traits. We are here to support you along your path whether you are an artist, collector, developer, founder, or just looking to do cool stuff in web3.


NFT communities are known for leveraging new technologies to communicate, engage and have fun. Between Twitter posts, Twitter Spaces and Discord, keeping up with new tech can seem daunting but it’s really not so bad. These tools will help you stay informed, connected and supported. You'll find it’s worth the learning curve once you take the time to learn the tools. 


This article is meant to ease the learning curve for leveraging discord, one of the most powerful tools out there for building and organizing an online community. If you want to learn more about avoiding scams and preserving your sanity while on Discord read our Best Practices For Discord article.

The discord is broken up into sections, which are visible based on a few factors that we’ll talk about later on in this article. Just know that the ONBOARDING and HEADQUARTERS sections are the most important sections for understanding the community and getting help.

Say hello :-)

You’ll be sent to #greetings after that visit #introductions for your warm welcome, to introduce yourself and learn more about your new Umba Daima family. The links to both are in the left menu under the ONBOARDING section.
