We at Flote.app have just completed our first step into the world of Web3 with the release of the Plank Owner NFT collection. In moving towards this next evolution of the internet, we are beginning to roll out the digital property, authentication, and rewards systems that will change the face of online life. Or in our case, censorship-resistant social networking. The Planks, being a VIP pass for our earliest adopters.
The Flote Plank Owner NFT sale launched on January 31st and ran for two months, until March 31st, resulting in the minting of 300 utility-focused NFTs. The product launch, being our first of its kind, wasn’t without its hiccups. Some of the setbacks we faced likely resulted in fewer NFTs being created than we expected. However, that may be the very thing that makes this collection highly successful in the long run. With the amount of value and utility packed into each NFT and the relative scarcity of the collection, we feel that the Planks will become the most sought-after assets in the Flote ecosystem. For a full refresher on the perks and privileges associated with these NFTs check out this article.
Our v1 NFTs created during the initial mint ultimately had to be retired, due to a smart contract and UI bug. However, every person who purchased a Plank NFT has been airdropped our v2 NFTs that are now, and forever, the official Planks that will grant the holders an ever-growing list of perks and privileges.
That means, if you participated in the public mint, you now have your NFTs securely in the wallet you specified at the time of purchase. Some people may not know where to go to see them though. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
(If you are a $FLOTE Private-Sale buyer and have not yet received your Plank, check your emails for outreach from Erin Edwards)
How to view your NFTs
For a complete tutorial on how to view your Planks check out this article. But here are the cliff’s notes if you want to get straight to it.
- Go to OpenSea.io
- Connect your MetaMask wallet (and make sure you are on the wallet you used to collect your NFT)
- Go to your Account page
- You should then see your NFT(s) under the default “Collected” tab. If not, you will find it under the “Hidden” tab (Note that if you are accessing your account through the OpenSea mobile app, they do not display the Hidden tab)
What to do with them now?
The initial perks have started to roll out, including the private Discord and Telegram channels. However, the most anticipated benefit is just around the corner. The airdrop of the $FLOTE token to all Plank Owners and Private-Sale buyers!
After that, we will begin checking off the rest of the perks on the list, with announcements preceding each wave of benefits. In the coming months, the core utility of the NFTs will start to be released within the Flote app. The best way to stay in the know on what’s coming is to follow @flotetoken on Flote, and to join our Telegram and Discord communities (both public and private depending on your Plank owner status).
