NFT и GameFi Alliance | Phase 1 (Updated version)

Continuing the discussion from Everscale NFT & GameFi Alliance | Pilot phase:

Everscale NFT и GameFi Alliance proposal

  1. Introduction

Wide coverage of the NFT market is critical for the development of the Everscale network.

Unlike DeFi, NFT possesses a substantial advantage: NFT tokens are applicable in games, music or tokenization of the digital world as a unique form of property. Similarly, in the nearest future one could store large files like audio or video on this blockchain with the help of NFT tokens. Owners can be certain that their files will remain intact.

Another popular concept is GameFi, which unites DeFi and NFT. Due to gaming popularity the value of an NFT as an in-game item will skyrocket immediately. Games will also bring new vitality to NFT and infuse giant momentum into cryptocurrency branch development.

DappRadar reports: July to September 2021 the volume of NFT trades reached USD 10.67B - 704% more than the previous quarter.

As for games-related NFT items: during the same time period its trades volume was USD 2.32B - 21.72% of the total trades volume, showing a 762% growth in comparison to the previous quarter.

Per another DappRadar data report, by the end of March 2021 there were more than 50,000 active wallets interacting with game-related smart contracts on blockchain. During the 2nd quarter this number reached 360,000, growing 600%. Currently about 370,000 wallets remain active in blockchain games every day and the number of wallets keeps growing.

  1. NFT & GameFi Alliance

NFT and GameFi Alliance is a community of like-minded individuals and companies with one common goal: to create an environment for substantial and sustainable growth of Everscale in this sector.

Alliance teams have already invested more than USD 2.5M into Everscale blockchain-based NFT and GameFi projects development and onboarding. Alliance will also allocate financial means to NFT and GameFi projects that have a good reputation and traction. Those, in turn, will develop products to be used on the Everscale blockchain.

Alliance activity will be aimed at:

Raising the popularity of NFTs on Everscale and increasing their number and turnover

  • Increase network TVL by Incentivizing Investment into long turn network growth via NFT marketplaces.
  • Attracting Investors into NFT-specific DeFi and Metaverse mechanisms which will promote locking value.
  • Attracting new NFT and GameFi projects into Everscale as well as getting traction in the emerging cross-industry Metaverse phenomenon.
  • Motivating and assisting NFT and GameFi development teams to create new Everscale blockchain-based projects.
  • Assistance to onboard successful, existing projects to the Everscale blockchain.

Standardization

Alliance participants are to put all of their efforts into implementing best practices of NFT structure, including games-related NFT. Presently, wallets like Ever Surf and EverSpace already support the display of NFT. More information is available from this AMA session Surf & True NFT recording and our TG group.

The Alliance will participate in NFT related standardization via proper Everscale.network standards discussions and acceptance of the process described in the TIP-4 NFT standards tree.

We will organize the NFT standardization process and have the following challenges to rectify:

NFT Standard supported by:

  • wallets - EVER Surf, EVER Wallet and EverSpace, everscalewallet.com
  • explorers - TON Live, TON Scan.

EVER Connect (universal authentication interface) supported by:

Awareness, integration and listing

The Alliance’s efforts are largely aimed at promoting and recognizing NFT on Everscale. One of the target points in this direction, we see ensuring the listing of Everscale NFT on major platforms such as DappRadar (done), NFT Scoring, Сryptoscores, Сoin mooner, NFT evening, NFT calendar, Non-fungi, Next NFT drop, Gem hunters, Coin hunters, etc.

In addition, we set a task to list TOP NFT marketplaces operating on the Everscale network on popular aggregators.

In order to attract more Creators and users who will buy NFT, the program plans to solve the following technical problems:

  • lack of mechanisms for publicly displaying an up-to-date list of acquired NFTs;
  • lack of standard of NFT trading;
  • lack of a single standard on NFTs for all the Everscale marketplaces;
  • lack of a convenient way to collect statistics on single NFTs and NFT collections (sales volume, number of users, etc.).

To solve these problems, it is proposed to develop such additional mechanics as:

  • farming \ staking NFT;
  • selling NFT for TIP3;
  • NFT collateral lending;
  • NFT Bridges to other networks, starting from Ethereum.

As we see, there is huge potential for the NFT market to grow - integration with social networks and games, we propose to integrate Everscale NFT with existing applications, social networks and games.

Marketing

To prevent unfair spending of marketing budget, we ask for funds in the form of boost, every documented and confirmable marketing own expenses paid by Alliance members can be boosted by x5 ratio.

Any activity must be properly marketed, we propose to allocate one time part of the EVER’s for co-financing of Alliance Members promotion expenses directed to Everscale NFT and GameFi projects and all program Incentives:

  1. Creators Fund

The experience of NFT and GameFi Alliance members in the creation and promotion of NFT has shown that in order to attract new NFT and GameFi projects to the Everscale blockchain, a history of previously successfully sold collections is needed. However, at the moment, not all creators are ready to post their work on the Everscale blockchain due to its low popularity, adoption and small / inert community. This makes it almost impossible to launch successful collections that will attract public attention, which will significantly slow down the development of the network. Therefore, we propose, on behalf of the NFT and GameFi alliance, to launch the first part of the Creators Program, within which we will attract well-known creators with their own audience and traffic.

To increase the popularity of NFTs on Everscale, we plan to support a certain number of NFT collections, through Creators Fund:

  • purchasing the rights from EPIC Creators (who has rights to content and audience) for tokenization in NFT (joint drops), for example (current pipeline):
    • ATOMIC Games - The most ambitious game project of 2021-2022 will make their First FUN AirDrop;
    • THE GREATEST WORKS OF ART - paintings collection;
    • Mail.ru Games - As part of the partnership, minimum 10k True NFTs of Warface game will be issued in the form of cards and a unique mechanic of minting game objects by the players themselves will be implemented.
  • commitment to guaranteeing the sellout of NFT Tokens.

To achieve this task we plan to establish a Creators Fund, with stable coin assets, which will be invested in such Creators rights. To fulfill this Fund we ask the community to support such investments and approve participant interest in EVER’s with 100% match and locked by any network staking mechanism with a significant lock period.

This initiative will not put pressure on the EVER exchange rate, because investors pay their own fiat money, and get EVERS in the form of locked stake.

The Alliance will collect a profit for such allocation, from the investors money which will be turned into Alliance marketing activities.

  1. Liquidity Program

To attract Investors to actively participate in the NFT market, many NFT projects have their Farming programs for premium NFT collections minted on Everscale. To support this incentive and market user base growth, we propose to support major NFT projects based on Everscale, with additional liquidity for their own TIP3 tokens listed on Everscale dex’s like TONSWAP or FLEX.

We expect this program to double the TVL of the network relative to the allocated EVERs.

Current pipeline of candidates for this program (subject to further due diligence; more candidates to come as projects get traction):

  1. GrandBazar.io

  2. NFT.THIRD.PLACE

  3. CHESSNFT.COM

  4. Scalepunks.com

  5. GameFi Guild (pilot program)

One of the goals of the Alliance is the development of a virtual economy in metaverses and blockchain games, including those that support the Play-to-Earn (P2E) model using NFT on the Everscale blockchain. This requires support for promising developments in this area. We propose to implement:

  • A support of the Funds that will invest into GameFi Startup Fund - to support GameFi startups on pre-seed phase (max 100k EVER’s each) via Funds Matching mechanism;
  • GameFi Boost marketing program - for GameFi projects based on Everscale, we are ready to organize marketing boost in terms of new GameFi users - 5 000 users per project.
  • Pilot program of co-financing of such projects in the ratio of 1:1 to their own investments. We assume co-financing in terms of network commission compensation and other similar support, not direct financing by EVER’s. The goal of the pilot program is to attract in the first year 3-5 projects with own investments of at least $500,000 each.
  1. Sponsorships and product placements

The alliance will use the funds to sponsor large projects, events, organizations that can noticeably raise the prestige and reputation of the Everscale network as well as help NFT projects on Everscale. An example of that would be sponsorship of the FIDE global chess events as already done by Binance and Coinbase. This will expose Everscale in front of a massive (hundreds of millions of people) global chess enthusiasts base. This will also help chessnft.com (an official partnership with FIDE) to attract a user base to the project / Everscale.

An example of the upcoming product placement is an Indian movie to be released in June 2022 with 20 minutes exposure to chess and NFT (on Everscale). According to the official broadcaster (#1 in India) only the Indian viewership is estimated at 100+ million viewers with global numbers to further increase this.

  1. What is required

To reach all targets, 55М EVERs is needed, distributed the following way:

  1. Awareness/listing and Integration (see Awareness block) – 3M EVERs.
  2. Co-finance of marketing boost, directed to mass distribute all NFT and GameFi Incentive activities on Everscale blockchain – 5М EVERs.
  3. Creators Fund according to Creators Fund - 15M EVERs.
  4. Liquidity Program - 20M EVERs.
  5. GameFi Guild (pilot program) - 7M EVERs.
  6. Sponsorships and product placement - 5M EVERs

For avoidance of any doubt all funds requested in co-invest format (47M out of 55M requested) will be distributed to match the outside investment funding of these programs.

GrandBazar.io

GrandBazar – is The Everscale-based platform that facilitates the creation, sale,

and purchase of ownership rights to digital works/items via non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The platform works as a non-custodial service, meaning that users store NFTs in some

custom TTWs to which the platform does not have access. The buying and selling of NFT

are done through the platform’s smart contracts.

GrandBazar is using True NFT Standard:

  • Information about its items owner is included in the initial data of the token, which makes it possible to find it when searching;
  • The data is placed in a separate non-removable contract, thus forming something like a search index, which is recreated when the owner changes.

Chessnft.com (EverX)

Chess NFT specialized marketplace in partnership with FIDE started with the World Chess Championship in Dubai Unique Chess and Moments Collections.

I support this proposal. The development of social services is one of the priority areas for attracting new users. I have two questions:

  1. How funds will be unlocked. Will it be possible to simultaneously unlock it with subsequent withdrawal to the exchange and a fall in the rate?
  2. The conditions for stopping the program are not specified. There are circumstances under which this program will no longer be relevant.
    I would also like the DeFi alliance to be the governing body. They must receive financial reports and confirm spending.

Much, much better. I think I mentioned it on Tuesday’s community call. Looks like everyone’s interests have been accounted for, adjustments made. I also know that the standardization communications are going well too. Looks like some serious work went into updating the proposal. I’m personally good with it.

55 Million is a huge amount. I do not agree it should be this high. Coupled with the grant that Defi Alliance got, is there no concern over selling pressure it will bring on EVER? Seem to be handing out tokens like candy.

I would like to see the amount reduced and a discontinuation switch if the project does not seem like its going anywhere (oversight done by a third party). That way the funds can be returned or burnt if we decide to pull the plug. Also financial reports as someone else mentioned is a good idea.

I hear your concerns, but 1 ) DeFi is Defi. We can’t compare apples to oranges. NFT is its own thing. 2) All of the NFT folks are hodlers – PROVEN! This is not the same thing as useless, stupid partnerships from the past. Everyone in the Everscale NFT space mentioned in the proposal are stark advocates and token holders. Not the same thing.

But thank you for your opinion

Thank you for your comment, but that’s not quite accurate. QAN are still working on it and I have every confidence they will come through, but I agree that time is ticking. I will personally ask them what’s up.

That said, this is not a fair comparison. QAN and NFT Alliance are like pine trees and grouper fish. They don’t even live in the same environment, albeit QAN does have an NFT initiative as well.

But I appreciate your point and will follow up. But these are 2 completely different things. At least that’s how I see it.

  1. Nope because we get it in msig with major players of Everscale community.
  2. We have strong connection with DeFi Alliance trough Sergey Shashev and any direct spendings will be coordinated, but it’s only 5kk EVER’s of total sum.

I know how much development costs, I know how much time is to support projects, I have a view how much marketing costs. I want to say that 55m for the tasks of the alliance is not much as everyone thinks. Because I’m sure they will go to real affairs, and not in a glass, how everyone fear. I fully support this proposal

Analytics & support are working with QAN to prepare the final report. The smart contract address should provide all the relevant information, since all winnings are recorded daily to the smart contract.

Все участники альянса являются долгосрочными держателями токенов EVER, основной смысл, заключается в том, чтобы вкладываться своими деньгами в проекты на базе Everscale, работая на сеть в целом, получить разумную компенсацию.
Почти все запрошенные монеты идут в виде 100% match на фиатные инвестиции участников. Не вижу тут рисков для курса EVER, от слова совсем. А вот выгода от этих усилий будет для всей сети.

Respectfully, they are only holders until the day they decide to sell. You can’t just expect people to take your word for it surely. I would still like third party oversight and a off switch should the project not deliver at the very least. I don’t think this is unreasonable at all given the size of the grant which should be reduced in the first place.

I admit that the plan seems to have been more developed than the previous version but still cannot stop thinking 55 million is too much to ask for. Potential token buyers would certainly think there are 55 million tokens that may be ultimately sold in the market.

This signals to a potential group of people that now they are allowed to ask for tens of millions of tokens only if they have some very solid plan. What if a new group of people appears to ask for 20 million tokens with a fancy plan and say it is much lower than the one from the NFT Alliance?

Instead of giving so much, a record-breaking amount of funds to NFT Alliance, if we form a separate fund for NFT Alliance with enough number of different custodians who would evaluate the progress that NFT Alliance will make, at least it makes a more impartial plan?

Correct me if I am wrong, please, but if the above custodians of the multi-sig change their minds at any time later, they can always decide to release the tokens to the market, can’t they? This means if only three of them (out of five) agree on doing that, technically, it can happen.

Another thing I am worried about is that the number of tokens people would ask from now on will significantly increase based on similar logic/structure. We are making an example.

This part got to be specified with some strict conditions.

Please don’t get me wrong. I understand that we need a robust NFT Alliance, and I fully support it! Nevertheless, we should be cautious when it comes to distributing 55 million tokens to a small group of custodians.

I do not agree this. Without step by step plan it is like very expensive gift for stranger.

Such generous offers push me to stop investing in EVER.
Yes, these products and developments are needed by the project, but not at such a price in a small number of hands.
Restoring NTF SG and holding contests on these solutions would sound better.

Monetize, create your own token, make an initial token sale, The part of the community that considers this offer valuable will test you as it sees fit.

If we want to see new nft and game projects on everscale, we need to have clear and easy way for onboarding new projects.

This alliance is best solution for it.

Are you fear that this tokens will sold?
All participants alliance investing fiat money and they are ever holder. I think they don’t do that.
