The time has almost come for our Private-Sale buyers to receive their FLOTE tokens! We thank you so much for your patience and ongoing support for Flote while we build a more stable, scalable, and censorship-resistant social network.
But first, before they get their $FLOTE they will be receiving a free Flote Plank Owner NFT! We had intended to, and even publicly announced plans to release a special-edition NFT, the Privateer, to the private-sale participants. However, upon further consideration, we decided to issue Plank NFTs from our public collection instead.
Why? For one, the Privateer NFTs were not going to be tradeable. Just a profile badge with some extra perks. However, we figured you may prefer to have the option to trade them on the secondary market at some point in the future.
Secondly, settling on a single collection of special perks that was sufficiently valuable to our big spenders, but not gratuitously generous for our more meager customers was a tough call. In the end, we felt that the tiers and resale potential of our public Plank Owner NFT Collection was the better way to go.
So, how do you get your Plank and which one will you get?
It’s simple, really. All you need to do is download the MetaMask wallet browser extension and/or mobile app and create a wallet. We have a whole tutorial on how to create a MetaMask wallet. Once you do, just copy your wallet address and share it with us in a reply to this email. This will be the same address we will send your $FLOTE to in the very near future.
Why MetaMask? It is the industry standard for interacting with Web3 apps… Which Flote v1.0 will be. And by holding both your Plank NFT and $FLOTE in the MetaMask wallet associated with your account, you can use them within the new Flote platform once it goes live. If you plan to hodl your $FLOTE you can choose to move it to a hardware wallet as well, like a Ledger or Trezor.
As for which Plank you will receive, buyers will get the next tier up from the amount of $FLOTE they purchased. While you will still be receiving exactly the amount of tokens you purchased (not the predetermined amount of tokens airdropped to those who purchase the NFTs), you will get all the other perks and privileges associated with that tier’s NFT. We feel this is a significant way of saying “Thank you” for being with us from the very beginning.
Here is how that works:
- You spent $1 – $99 | You’ll receive the Shipmate – Tier 1
- You spent $100 – $999 | You’ll receive the Chief – Tier 2
- You spent $1,000 – $2,499 | You’ll receive the Officer – Tier 3
- You spent $2,500 – $4,999 | You’ll receive the Captain – Tier 4
- You spent $5,000 – $9,999 | You’ll receive the Pirate – Tier 5
- You spent $10,000+ | You’ll receive the Whale – Tier 6
Want to get in on the Plank Owner airdrop too? Upgrade!
As mentioned above, private-sale buyers will only get the tokens they purchased along with their NFT. However, we want to give you the opportunity to unlock the public airdrop associated with your NFT. To take advantage of this offer you need only make up the difference between your initial token purchase and the price of the NFT you are receiving.
This is a sample of what that looks like:
(Official airdrop quantity may vary)
- Initial Purchase: $3,000
- $FLOTE tokens to be received: 6,000
- Plank NFT to be received: Captain
- Plank NFT price: $5,000
- Upgrade Price: $2,000
- Approx. $FLOTE tokens to be received w/ upgrade: 11,000
To take advantage of the upgrade please reply to this email and we will arrange payment in whatever currency or payment method is most convenient for you.
So there you have it! Both your Plank NFTs and $FLOTE tokens are on their way soon! Once we receive all of the wallet addresses from our private-sale participants we will airdrop the NFTs into your wallets. So please create your MetaMask wallet and send us your address asap. We will also be proactively reaching out to all eligible users via every contact method we have to expedite this process.
