Nexus Ascending

Our landing on one of the Moons of Sipheria was a rough experience for the 1st Fleet, and in the aftermath of the First Great War, the factions have united to make peace in order to build The Nexus, a forward base which was developed in order to ensure our survival while gradually collecting the necessary resources to reach Sipheria.

However, while resources for creating living spaces on the Moon are abundant, we have made very little way in ensuring a steady supply of food and water, as well as the creation of weapons and armor. Even worse, under hushed whispers at night, the discontentment of Sipherians from having limited ways to spend their free time, festers and grows rapidly.

As such, we have created the Nexus Expansion Program with the purpose of allowing our community to continue developing and building within the Nexus, to bring in the amenities that allow all Sipherians to have a better quality of life.

Thankfully, the Sipherians that have settled in The Nexus (such as yourself), come from different backgrounds, have a variety of skillsets, and most importantly have expressed the willingness to contribute to the development of our growing city - terraforming and helping us build the next "Forge", "Research Quarters", "Space Outfitters", "Armory" etc.

Due to the outpouring passion from our community, we decided to work towards and create a self-sustainable and vibrant "Hub" in which our very own Sipherians add value via contribution of their skills, community activities, and community-created projects or initiatives. We envision that most of this will be made possible via:

  1. The use of a Community Wallet that will fund these projects or initiatives, and
  2. The integration of Nanochips (a new Sipher "point system" exclusive to Discord), which are awarded to members for their contributions to our community or taking part in community planned events and activities.

Community Wallet

The first and most important aspect of the program is the creation and funding of a Community Wallet. This should allow the incentivization for Sipherians to lend their skills, as well as work together to lead initiatives or create projects that benefit the community. For specific details of how this Community Wallet will be funded, how funds will be used, and when we expect to create it, please refer to the following section

.

Nanochip (Points) Ecosystem

Nanochips will be used as a means by the Sipher Team to reward both community members who lend their skills to the Nexus' Building Projects, as well as for community members who acts as participants in these projects / initiatives. In terms of its use, Nanochips can be redeemable for future in-game cosmetics, future whitelist slots, or even free SIPHER Genesis NFTs.

For specific details about the Nanochips Rewards Ecosystem, please refer to the following section

.

We're extremely excited to see how The Nexus will grow, as well as which "buildings" will be constructed next (Note that the Nexus map (above) will be updated with additional buildings after completion of projects or initiatives)

Citizens of Sipheria

💡

The Citizens of Sipheria are the cornerstone of The Nexus, and as a democracy, they wield the power to approve Nexus expansion Projects, and to select and hold their elected Council Members accountable.

Citizen of Sipheria's Objectives

One of the most important residents of our fledgling hub are our Citizens of Sipheria. As a Citizen of Sipheria, you play a pivotal part in The Nexus, and have the following objectives:

  1. Custodians of the Community Wallet - the Citizens of Sipheria are the final decision makers behind whether a project/initiative is approved and allowed to draw from Community Funds (Refer to
    👥
    Community Voting Process
    )
  2. Electing the Council of Nine - the Citizens of Sipheria are the final decision makers on who gets voted into the Council of Nine, with the exception of the the Sipher Core Member Council Seat and the Moderators (Refer to
    🏛️
    Sipherian Council of Nine - Selection Process
    )

Who gets to be a Citizen of Sipheria?

  1. Sipher NFT Holders (Genesis NFTs only, until otherwise announced), who hold the 'True Sipher' role on Discord.
  2. Sipherians (Community Members) without Sipher NFTs who have consistently shown their devotion to the community - by using their acquired Nanochips to purchase a Permanent Discord Role that confers Voting Rights.

How many Votes do I effectively have?

In true democratic spirit, all Genesis Sipher NFT Holders (Discord Members with the 'True Sipher' role) are eligible for 1 Vote - regardless of the total number of NFTs held. If a Discord Member holds both the 'True Sipher' role, along with the Permanent Discord Role with Voting Rights, they are still only eligible for 1 Vote.

Sipherians (Community Members)

👥

Seeking fulfilment and joy in the Nexus, Sipherians take part in the various Projects and Buildings constructed, bringing life to the fledgling community, and giving purpose to the expansion of the Nexus.

Sipherians' Objectives

Taking Part in Community Projects / Initiatives and acquiring Bounties of Nanochips from Sipher for taking part (Refer to

The Nexus - Overview & Flow

The Nexus Expansion - Our Journey Forward

This Program is meant to benefit all community members in one way or another, either as a result of each of the projects and initiatives, or from obtaining Nanochips that you can then exchange for rewards.

Here are some of the benefits that can come from ongoing initiatives or as a result of the completion of projects:

  • Faster delivery on community amenities and tools while the Sipher Team focuses primarily on game creation
  • Additional marketing avenues led by the community
  • Bring the community together and create stronger bonds via more community focused activities and events
  • Ability to assist other non-crypto individuals or entities (charities) while also raising awareness of our project and the crypto, NFT, and Blockchain gaming space
  • Added value to the project as a whole, especially before the launch of the game

For additional examples of the potential uses of the Community Wallet funds, refer to
