We are incredibly excited to announce the Metablox Whitelist!

The Challenges are now complete

First and foremost, we want to acknowledge and congratulate all of our trailblazing Neighbors that participated in our 2021 Challenges on our Discord.

Results of the Challenges:

  • 59 Neighbors won
  • 76 NFTs awarded

At launch, the NFTs will range in value from $100 - $500, depending on the Tier assigned to it.

Value of the challenges: This means that our top winner, jerod.eth, will own a minimum of $400 worth of NFTs (as he won 4 NFTs).

Growth as Mint pricing grows: In addition, as our first city (San Francisco) gets sold, the Mint pricing increases at each 10% interval.

Using jerod.eth as an example again, if he holds these 4 Tier-1 NFTs through Phase 6 of San Francisco, the NFT value will grow to $759 each, for a total of $3,036 (for 4 NFTs).

If the random NFTs assigned to jerod.eth are instead Tier 3, then the value of his NFTs will grow to a total of $9,112.

The Metablox Whitelist gives access to the MVP

We aim to launch the MVP of Metablox within 30 days — targeting an early February launch.

How NFT pricing work for the MVP

This is important.

At our full launch (after the MVP), the normal pricing for a Blox (what we call our NFTs) will increase by 50% at each 10% interval that San Francisco is sold.

The result is pricing that behaves like this:

Therefore, if you want to buy a Tier 1 Blox when 30% of San Francisco is sold (Phase 4), then you’ll need to pay $338.

However, for the MVP, all Neighbors can reserve to mint Blox at the base Phase 1 price.

This means that the earliest Neighbors will get the absolute best pricing for the Blox in San Francisco.

Return for being early

Our first city (San Francisco) will contain ~5,000 Blox. This means that the earlier that you are, the likelier that you will be able to own a Blox.

It is a strong possibility that all of the Blox will be fully reserved during the MVP

During the MVP, a Neighbor can reserve up to 3 Blox per email.

If a Neighbor reserves 3 Tier-3 Blox, then it will cost them $900 when they’re available to mint.

If the Neighbor holds the 3 Tier-3 Blox until Phase 4, then the value of their Blox will increase to $3,039 — for a >3x increase.

Benefits for being early

In addition to asset appreciation, you’ll start to earn MetaRent once you’re able to mint your reserved Blox.

MetaRent will be used for a Myriad of uses, the most valuable of which is to bid on the rarest NFTs in Metablox — the Landmarks.

We will soon announce our Tokenomics for Metablox as well, revolving around MemoryCoin. Our earliest neighbors will be the first to be able to mine Memory Coin.
