We would like to start by saying a big Thank You to all the people who have been supporting us on Twitter and showing interest in the MoonRock NFTs project. If you are new, here is a short description of the project-
MoonRock is an NFT project on Cardano. These are the first reward-generating NFTs which means that apart from owning an NFT, users will be able to reap rewards ( more on this below).
There are only 1815 Moon Rocks in this universe. What differentiates our project from other NFTs is that the users will be able to collect rewards* & receive airdrops* based on owning a Moon Rock.
Why did we choose 1815?
1815 has a huge significance for Cardano. Ada Lovelace was a British mathematician born in 1815. Ada was the daughter of Byron. 1815 is used in the address format as coin_type for Cardano. Just like we have satoshi in Bitcoin, Ada units below 1 are called Lovelace. 1 million Lovelace is equal to 1 Ada
Traits & Rarity
Each moon rock has some elementary traits similar to an actual moon or planet or a celestial body in outer space. These traits may include elements, atmosphere, etc.
A rock may contain elements such as Gold, Silver, Platinum, Iron, Mercury. Atmosphere such as Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen ( final traits will be disclosed soon on the website). The combination of these traits will make your moon rock more valuable than the others. The more valuable the moon rock, higher the rewards you will receive. Moonrock will fall in one of the following rarities- Common, Rare, Super, Ultra.
There is one more rarity type, we wish we can talk about it now but mostly it will show up only during the release. Those are very rare you may see them only once in a blue moon.
How rewards ( or revenue) will be generated?
The reward generation will happen in more than one way depending on the type of rock that you hold. Please keep in mind that not all rocks will be able to generate rewards directly ( ie. by mining the rocks), for other rocks there will be other ways to reap rewards ( these will be community rewards/airdrops which may be valued more by other rock holders, hence may be more rewarding than direct rewards). This will depend on the rarity of the Moon Rock. More details will be announced about this as we get closer to the reward distribution phase. We don’t want to disclose all the details ATM, there are too many copycats out there. Rewards will be distributed through smart contracts either on Plutus or in the meantime if Milkomeda (side chain for Cardano) is released, we may also consider using Solidity.
When is the launch?
MoonRock NFTs will be sold in two rounds — 910 in Round 1 and remaining in the second round (TBD). The sale for Round 1 will be sometime next week. Follow us on Twitter to stay up to date.
