The Ether Card Tokens
The technology underpinning Ether Cards tokens allows projects to use NFTs both as membership cards and as authentication tokens. Ether Cards-enabled NFTs can also hold keys to application features, manage subscriptions and collect commissions (yield farming-style).
Ether Cards are not only rare digital collectibles but they also carry real, practical utility and value.
The Ether Card Tokens can be integrated with several decentralized services. They can:
- Serve as a membership card
- Grant access to features
- Give you privileges and priority access
- Provide access to community airdrops
- Collect commissions for you
Now or Never
In order to celebrate the beginning of a new era and of our network, we will make our launch rewarding for all participants by releasing a limited number of Ether Cards with features that will NEVER EVER will be made available after this first, special drop.
This is it, This time, you’re early!
Just like cryptocurrency pioneers, you’re standing at the gates of the NFTs revolution.
We will be releasing some Ether Cards with features that will never, ever be available to the wider public.
Among other things, some of the Ether Cards will provide:
- Free ongoing NFT art drops for a set period of time. This token will be a one-off, so don’t miss out.
- Significant multi-use, perpetual discounts. You won’t see these again.
- Fee waivers for some or all Ether Cards services, basically a free-pass-for-life scenario. Yep, you guessed it. These are also one-off.
To make distribution of these unique privileges fair, we will be employing Chainlink’s VRF to randomly assign the features to cards at the point of sale. While you won’t be able to handpick the features this time, you will have a chance to increase your odds. And trust us, it’s worth it.
You will be able to purchase a card specifically from the 90-piece OG Collection (Original Gangster, cards with a 2-digit serial), 900-piece Alpha Collection (cards with a 3-digit serial), or 9,000-piece Founder Collection (cards with a 4-digit serial). A special Random Trait could see your Founder card getting an upgrade to an Alpha Collection, or even to the coveted OG Collection.
Let’s take a close look at features.
Royalty Traits are only for the elite royals. If you are one of the lucky owners of this Trait then you can be sure to be rewarded handsomely. More details will be revealed after the sale.
If you are a creator or artist, you will be able to get extra value out of your Ether Card through Traits that give you free services on the platform. It could be the ability to create tickets without paying the setup fee, creating a puzzle or any other similar structure. You might even get a Trait that gives you a freeaccess to all and any services, including future ones.
Gamers and collectors will also enjoy benefits: your Ether Card might have Traits that give you 5, 15 or 25% discount on all items in the store. This means both servies such as setting up tickets or buying blind bags and other goodies.
Note: these perpetual discount tokens are not going to be made anymore. Like many other Traits, they can only be acquired during this initial issuance.
For ticket events, odds are increased by holding more tickets. One of the Traits which your card might offer is the right to obtain up to three extra tickets for each raffle you participate to.
Another Trait that will favour the brave. This Trait will enhance your odds of finding rare and high quality cards in any blind bag you purchase.
Traits that matter
In short, the first 10,000 Ether Card that will be minted starting on the 18th of March will have features that will never be issued again. Among other thigs:
- Free NFT drops
- Discount on purchases on Ether Cards and partners
- Free services
- Free cards for puzzles
- Free tickets to win NFTs
- Many more: Click here for the full list of Traits
Many of the Traits will be assigned randomly, but not all. Committing early will have huge benefits.
They might grant you power to create tickets, set up bounties, puzzles and other NFT-related actions and mint NFTs.
You just have to keep the token in your wallet that is connected to the Ether Cards platform, and you will automatically be granted access to features, fees will be waived, discounts will be discounted, drops will be dropped, gifts will be gifted, and commissions will be commissioned, all according to the Traits of your Ether Card.
It really works like magic.
The shorter the serial number on your Ether Card, the better features you will enjoy.
The Creator Cards
These are the cards with 1-digit serial numbers, from 0 to 9. They don’t actually have any special abilities, other than rarity and sentimental value. These won’t be available to the wider public.
The OG Cards
These are the next best way to get involved with Ether Cards apart from, well… founding it! For people who come early, there will be 90 special cards, marked by the serial numbers 10 to 99. These carry 3x the chance of getting rare and unique Traits, so they bring a considerably high value in terms of the benefits owners are likely to receive.
The Alpha Cards
The Alpha cards have 3-digit serial numbers. There will be 900 in circulation, from 100 to 999. They provide 2x the chance of getting rare Traits.
The Founder Cards
The Founders make up the rest of the series. They are the 4-digit cards, from 1000 to 9999. They can still provide ANY of the Traits, but are less likely to do so than Alpha or OG Cards.
Some of the Traits will be issued, but only revealed after the sale is over, to avoid influencing the value of the remaining cards. Any of the 10,000 cards could be the most valuable one, but you can increase your luck by selecting OG cards.
A Platform For Experimentation
Ether Cards is the first public application of the FeatureTokens system — a complete system that allows non-financial projects to sustain themselves. The above Traits are just a fraction of the possibilities within reach once this technology is fully developed.
We will release the FeatureTokens system as open source, so other projects can organize their own fundraising.
