Here you can find answers to most of the questions asked about this project. If you have a question you don't see here it would be much appreciated if you suggested it in discord.
WHAT IS THE yONIVERSE?
The Yoniverse is the setting of a narrative. It originated from the founders art and was built by the community. It may expand in many different ways. Think of it as the title of a book series where there can be many different titles and formats.
wHAT IS YONIX?
Yonix is the xrpl token of the art collective, it will work as a 'ticket' to get the NFTs produced by the community until the last snapshot of May 27th 2022 after which every 0.5 Yonix is also equal to one Reyonian. When we start Epoch 2 after xls-20d is released Yonix holders will share a part of the yield from the artcollective such as sales, royalties ect.
WHAT is THE art collective?
A DAO is an autonomous organization governed by the people holding the specific token connected to that DAO. The idea is that everyone having a stake in a project has the right and should have the possibility to impact the success of that project in a flat organization. We will not be using the Yonix token as a governance token but consider the issued NFTs assets of a similar incentive. We are an art collective and every artist who participates and makes art within the narrative is interested in that narrative being of quality and having an active community around it.
WHAT KIND OF NFTS CAN I GET WHEN I HOLD YONIX?
You can get several types of NFTs which you can find in the menu above under NFTs. Every month there is an incubator with community mined art that gets pre-minted to holders. There is a snapshot every friday at 12GMT and the weeks between the incubators there are loyalty rewards. These rewards always consist of a collectable stamp but may also include game standard art, collectable coins, pets, trading cards and traditional art. When it is time to mint with xls-20d every 0.5 Yonix will equal 1 Reyonian NFT from our generative collection. The last snapshot for yonix loyalty rewards will be on May 27th 2022.
HOW DOES THE TIER SYSTEM WORK?
There are 4 tiers, which tier you are in depends on your holdings at the snapshot. The minimum requirement for a tier and for NFT allocations is 0.1 Yonix for tier 4. If you hold 1 Yonix you are in tier 3, if you hold 5 Yonix you are in tier 2 and if you hold 10 Yonix you are in tier 1. With there only being 715 tokens there can only ever be 71 tier 1 holders for example. Tier 1 will get a 1/1 every art drop and everything from the tiers below. Under project in the menu above you can see the distribution chart for all tiers.
HOW DO I BECOME A YONIAN ARTIST?
You enter your art to the incubator that opens every month. When the community votes the art gets ranked for the distribution. If your art makes it into a collection you will get the title of yonian artist. Everyone is free to submit art to the creative channels in our discord.
WHAT IS THE NEBULA?
The nebula is a place where those who have submited many high ranking pieces and have shown their understanding of the yoniverse narrative is invited. The purpose of this group is to produce narrative specific content to keep advertising material and world-building fresh and evolving.
WHAT IS COMMUNITY MINING?
Community mining refers to a project using its community as resources rather than outsourcing work. The users know what they want and what the project needs.
WHAT IS WORLD BUILDING?
World building refers to every brick of writing, art, lore, music, buildings you put into a narrative to make it feel alive. In the Yonix community we put a great amount of energy into building the Yoniverse because we are doing this project with passion and want the community to have that emotional connection with it too.
WHAT IS THE LORE SQUAD AND HOW DO I JOIN?
The lore squad is similar to nebula but for lore. Those who have shown their understanding of the Yoniverse narrative and has been active in submitting lore in our creative channels are invited. The purpose of this group is to produce narrative specific content to keep advertising material and world-building fresh and evolving.
WHAT IS THE METAVERSE?
We do not yet have details in terms of what the metaverse is but we have announced a partnership with 6 other xrpl projects that we are building a metaverse together. More information will come later in 2022.
WHAT UTILITY WILL YONIX NFTS HAVE?
As of today there is no utility for the NFTs. We are hopeful that there can be in the future. We are planning to use the IDs of genesis NFTs from Epoch 1 in different incentives like raffles for example or allocations of new collections.
Where is the community interacting?
The Yoniverse community is mainly interacting on Discord. You can find the link below in the page footer.
WHAT DOES PRE-MINTING MEAN?
Pre-minting means that we take the data from the snapshot containing your wallet address and tier, we then allocate all the metadata of an NFT to this address and store it on IPFS ready for mint.
WHAT IS YOBOT AND DO I HAVE TO USE IT?
You do not have to use Yobot if you do not want to but it is a convenient tool. Yobot is a discord bot built by our developer. It is used for authenticating with XUMM, sending or receiving payments in discord, checking your tierstatus and richlist, it is also a viewer for your pre-minted NFTs.
This is the reoccuring question and the truth is that we do not know this yet. Minting will be when xls-20d is ready. We will not use a less suitable form of minting for our NFTs before xls-20d is ready as it will be the NFT standard for the xrpl. We will be here and we are already allocating future assets every friday so we do not feel rushed but are happy that we will get quality when the time comes.
