How to Route Sale Earnings From NFT Platforms to Your Community Pool

This guide will show you how you can route a custom p6ercentage of your earnings to a community pool and bolster your signal in the network and improve your work's discoverability online.

STEP 1: Finding Your Community Pool’s Accumulator Address

Each community pool is equipped with an Accumulator Contract Address. This address can be used to route funds into your community pool for Rewards Swaps! In order to find the accumulator address you’ll need to head to your community pool’s landing page on app.rare.xyz. Once there, you can click the “Reward Swap” tab pictured below to reveal the accumulator Contract Address.
Click the "Reward Swap" tab to access your accumulator contract's address.
This is your Accumulator Contract Address.

STEP 2: Setting up Your Splits Protocol Contract

The Splits Protocol (formerly 0xSplits) is the main mechanism you’ll be using to configure splits for your community pool. This contract allows you to route a percentage of funds it receives into multiple addresses.
If you’d like to learn more about Splits we encourage you to check out their website or developer documentation!
