Integrating Nafty into the Sharesome ecosystem
Open Letter to all Nafty Token Holders
Dear Nafty Community,
as you have heard, we have acquired all assets of the Nafty ecosystem. That means, we have not bought the organization behind Nafty, but we bought the technology and the brand.
First of all: Welcome to the Flame Family! I am super happy to welcome more than 50,000 Nafty community members to our family (if you guys decide to join us).
Let me shortly introduce myself. I am Robert Knapp, CEO and Founder of Flame Technologies AG, the holding company behind Flame Token and Sharesome, the world’s first and only sex-positive social media platform.
I am an entrepreneur for at least 35 years. My last venture was CyberGhost VPN that I sold in 2017 for EUR 9.2 million to an Israeli company.
My focus is now on Flame Technologies where our vision is to make social media more open-minded by allowing to post nudes and bringing Web3 to social media.
Our vision to bring Web3 to social media was the reason to acquire the Nafty assets. The Nafty team has built an amazing ecosystem of Web3 platforms that we can integrate into our ecosystem.
I would like to address one project after the next and tell you guys what our plans are.
The Nafty Token
The Nafty Token is designed as a utility token for the Nafty ecosystem. Nafty Token is trading at $0.00001293 at the moment that I write this letter, down from an all-time high of $0.00538848 in August 2021.
We have already our own token: Flame Token (XFL)
Flame Token isn’t listed on any exchange (yet). There are only Liquidity Pools on different Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) that are not officially supported by Flame. We are right now in talks with different Centralized Exchanges (CEX) to list Flame Token (XFL).
After Flame Token is listed on a Centralized Exchange, we will buy back all Nafty Tokens from the market for Flame Tokens at a fixed value of $0.0001 per Nafty Token. We don’t have a roadmap yet for the listing of Flame Tokens, we will keep you informed. *
We will introduce a “Lock Up” period for the Nafty vs Flame buyback of 2 months after the listing date of Flame Token as we don’t want to create a token dump event. You will pay the gas fees for the sale of Nafty Tokens as we will use a smart contract where you send your Nafty Tokens and receive Flame Tokens.
The Nafty Angels & Nafty Dolls NFTs
There are two Nafty NFT collections. One with 1,696 Nafty Angels and one with 6,969 Nafty Dolls (both on Ethereum). There is also the Beta-Version of a Metaverse Game for the Angels and Dolls, the Naftyverse.
After I brief analysis of the Naftyverse, we came to the conclusion that any further investment in it wouldn't lead to substantial success in a short time. The market for adult games is very crowded and investments in a Metaverse have to be substantial. Ask Mark Zuckerberg how hard it is to launch a Metaverse.
The development of the Naftyverse will be discontinued. But there is good news for the Nafty NFT holders.
I can today announce that Flame Technologies will integrate Naftys NFT marketplace technology fully into Sharesome. That means at the same time that NaftyArt will be discontinued as a stand-alone marketplace.
The marketplace will allow users to purchase blockchain-based collectibles for a fixed rate. There will be no need for a crypto wallet to buy them, our existing Flame Credits (that are accessible with a credit or debit card) are enough, and users can store the collectibles in our own Sharesome wallet.
We start working now with artists and stars to launch at least 20 designs with limited-edition NFTs that can be used as avatars on Sharesome or simply showcased as a collection on the profile. Prices for the NFTs will start at $4.99 and will go up to $99.99.
Sharesome will share the revenue from secondary sales of these NFTs on marketplaces like OpenSea or Rarible 50/50 with the creators of the collectibles.
Users that own at least one Sharesome Collectible will have a new hexa-shaped profile picture everywhere on the platform, no matter if they use their Sharesome Collectible as an avatar or not.
With the launch of our NFT marketplace, all owners of a Nafty Angel or a Nafty Doll will be able to claim a free Sharesome Collectible. We will keep you informed. You will need to open a Sharesome account until then.
The Nafty dApp Infrastructure
Nafty.me and Nafty.vip will be discontinued. Both projects don’t have the necessary traction at the moment to allocate more cash to them. It is incredibly hard to move creators away from existing monetization solutions like OnlyFans or ManyVids where they are already successful to new challenger products like Nafty.me and Nafty.vip.
The Nafty Payment Solutions API
Things look different for NaftyPay. The Payment Solutions API will continue to exist under its own brand and will be implemented into the Sharesome ecosystem.
The Nafty Technology
We already laid out our Web3 ambitions regarding NFTs in our NFT Litepaper. We will mainly use the existing Nafty Technology to build two new platforms and integrate them with Sharesome.
Web3 has and will fundamentally change what it means to be a fan of something or someone. NFTs made the internet ownable. In the future, we will see NFTs develop beyond digital art into all forms of content.
We long talked only about creators in the adult industry and forgot to talk about the fans. We know that fans are an essential part of every creator economy, but they don't participate economically in it. We will change this.
So, let’s talk about fans.
We know that fans can move mountains and have power. Fans of One Direction literally made the British-Irish boy band. K-pop fans flooded police tip lines during Black Lives Matter protests and ordered tickets to Trump rallies, which helped leave a lot of seats empty at the venues. Football fans have been able to crush plans for a Super League.
The internet brought fans closer to their favorite creators. Now we take that one step further and use Web3 to enable fans and their favorite creators to be a part of the same team. Fans will have “skin in the game” by contributing their own work and money to the content they create by turning the current flow upside down by writing the scripts and hiring their favorite creators.
It is a win-win for both parties, the fan and the creator. The fan is incentivized to be an even more vocal supporter of the creator and he becomes an active contributor to the creator's content. The creator opens a new monetization channel and gets access to fans that are celebrities themselves.
In Web2, fans were passively supporting somebody. All of the value generated went to the creator and to third-party platforms like OnlyFans.
In Web3, fans have the opportunity to realize economic gain by becoming a producer themselves and starting their own projects.
It is already happening: Look at the early NFT collectors like @punk4156, @DeezeFi, @punk6529, and others who are now celebrities. They started as fans and became respected curators, and now even producers and creators themselves.
We will launch Pornvestors, a fan-driven platform where fans become porn producers by starting their own projects in just a few minutes.
Based on the Nafty technology, we will also launch the new streaming platform Nightflix which will monetize Pornvestors content and distribute earnings transparent on the blockchain.
Nightflix will also be open for all other creators and studios as a new monetization channel.
