We have 999 Limited Edition Hemp Aloha NowTee’s available to showcase founding support for the germination of S33D’s Genesis Pod and the accompanying mobile application. Together they weave the S33D Test-String, an evolving proof of concept that alludes to the role global connectivity can play in curating the shared spaces we inhabit. Now is yOur moment to feed the future of truth, discovery, and abundance.
“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine” – Nikola Tesla
1). Genesis S33D Pod
In March 2019, we began building S33D’s Genesis Pod in the mountains of Sierra Nevada, Columbia.
A S33D Pod is a sustainably built community structure; a focus point or “hub” for localizing trade, learning, and investment. Each Pod will provide the infrastructure necessary to collect, cast, curate, and verify the stories we share around the vast supply chains of our consumables. The germination of Pods in communities around the world will form S33D’s Distributed Library (SDL), an open-source educational network focused around the restoration of biodiversity and its circulating knowledge. Find out more here.
2). MVP App
The first release of our mobile application will allow users to create their S33D ‘Gardener’ digital identity, access the Genesis Pod’s governance tools, as well as being able to store funds & keys in a secure wallet. (This will later include the guardianship of your NowTee keys – see bellow).
Continued releases will allow us to grow the Pod governance experiment, including features such as: curating an inventory and localised DAO, communication tools for discussion & education, as well as a market place.
– Create your S33D Identity
– Create, Join, and Access Pods
– Living Library (Seeds, Books, Nodes)
– Social Governance (Polls, Fundraising, Communication)
– DAO (Democratic Commonwealth Investment)
– Store Ethereum & NowTee Keys
Once we have developed a working template for Pod governance, we can begin opening up the platform to gardeners who wish to replicate it and create Pods of their own. This will also mark as an expansion point in S33D’s development timeline as we move into its Beta development and begin working on templates for Hive governance and smART canvas trade.
3). The Aloha NowTee’s
There will only be 999 Limited Edition Aloha NowTee’s made, and their rarity and ownership will be represented by a set of unique digital collectibles (ERC-721). Verification of this will be possible on any Ethereum blockchain explorer*.
For each package of 3 Aloha NowTee’s ($369), there will also be 3 digital collectibles. Upon completion of your pre-order, these will be sent to your Metamask wallet, later to become storable within S33D’s mobile wallet. The digital collectibles allow holders to prove rarity and guardianship of their NowTee, as well as providing a method for claiming their t-shirts once ready for shipment. We see the NowTee’s as both a collective and collaborative work of art, interweaving facets of both blockchain and organics to create a new medium on which to experiment and fundraise.
As the contract will be live on Ethereum, we will need to manually adjust the price (set in Ether) to match it at $369. This will be done daily at 3pm GMT. The first 33 sets of NowTee’s (99 t-shirts) will be “pre-mined” and given to members of the team as a thank you their help in germinating the S33Dream.
