Property Ownership

Units

A unit is the smallest unit of property ownership in Aether. It is a property that is defined by its coordinates occupying an area of 10 m³. A unit is a part of a building and is adjacent to neighboring units. The owner of a unit determines its appearance, fills it with content, and has the ability to connect the unit to its own domain.

Buildings

A building is a property that is defined by its coordinates and size. The first unit level is managed by the building owner. A building’s space is also occupied by a number of units. A building’s height expands with the progression factor in Aether. The maximum number of units that a building can home is defined by the building’s space and height and therefore grows as the world progresses to equilibrium. A building can have an exclusive owner, who creates the basic design of the building and has the ability to connect the building to its own domain.

Next Steps

The Aether Core contract serves as a record of ownership and is the basis for future world development. It is by this nature that every property created is grandfathered into future iterations of Aether City. We have exciting plans for the Aether ecosystem, and will continue to develop on and off-chain systems to allow for this experience to drive Ethereum adoption. Gamification has been a key theme for Ethereum in 2018. We’re looking for ways we can improve on existing half-baked projects and ultimately create a fair platform and community for everyone.


Community Bounty

In the end, Aether City is built upon a community of users. We have designed a program to award community members who drive adoption through various channels. Let us know what you did! As a thank you from us, users will receive contributor units, and building properties. Furthermore, every participant in the bounty program will be on the mailing list to receive instant email updates when we release new countries to the marketplace.
