A Tale of Two Early Collectors, turned Guildmasters

📜
“Ahhhhh, such is the life,” sighed Collector (now Guildmaster) Dascania as he took a sip of his chilled Atheroot cocktail, looking out over the infinity pool located right above atop his guild, "Not Financial Advice (NFA)", which sported the best views in the Capital, while comfortably reclining on his lavishly custom-built pool chair, surrounded by the most fragrant aroma of roses from the nearby greenhouse.

“Indeed, and who knew we would both turn out so successful? It was not an easy road we took for sure, with many ups and downs, but I’m so glad we trusted our instincts and stuck around to see it all through,” said a well-built Collector (now Guildmaster) Inu as he casually emerged from within the pool and swam to the pool’s edge to get a better view of the golden rays as the sun was setting over the horizon.

Collector Dascania: “I concur, Collector Karyn. I believe we met during the time of the First Fleet, and back then, I remember being worried even for our survival while stranded on Sipheria’s moon during the First Great War. You were the first to gather and collect some of the most disheartened of our First Fleet Inus and gave them hope and a place to call home by creating what I remember to be Sipheria’s first-ever guild, Yolo Guardians Guild (YGG). Through your charisma, you even managed to persuade some within the Second Fleet Nekos to join your ranks unconditionally. How you managed that remains a legendary exploit till today.”

Collector Karyn: “Oh, you are far too kind, Karyn. You know what they say - there is safety in numbers, and that saying is even more so important on this planet. Those two Neko recruits, Dalia and Rosyre, whom you were referring to that joined me early on – they told me just as much that they felt their odds of survival were better by joining a larger and coordinated group.”

Collector Dascania: “And how are Dalia and Rosyre doing right now?”

Collector Karyn: “You know how I recently decided to start savoring life at a slower pace and delegated my guild’s multiple businesses to the managers? I promoted both of them. Dalia now oversees the mercenary-for-hire part of the business – and I heard she managed to seal the largest contract that the guild has ever had, with 50% of the resources acquired belonging to the Guild. I’ll certainly see to it that she receives a cut for managing the mercenaries and arranging their jobs. As for Rosyre, she was always interested in exploring the limits of science. The last I heard, she was on the verge of a breakthrough after discovering the properties of a rare resource called the ‘Vessel Core’ – she reckons that due to its duplicating properties, we might actually be able to further increase our numbers through a process called cloning. You know what that means for us – once we get more mercenaries, we get more profit, and then my Guild and I get to savor the best quality of life together!”

Collector Dascania: “We’re both so lucky to have such capable assistants helping us. Looking back, I think it certainly helped that we invested so much of our time, resources and efforts early on to build our Guilds – we’re so fortunate to have attracted so many individuals from the Third and Fourth Fleet in joining our ranks too, almost as if a great divine being above was watching over us (wink). Well, our futures are certainly bright, and let’s toast to that!”

Collector Program Details

Hello Sipherians! We hope you enjoyed the tale above. We somehow obtained and decrypted this message from the future and, from what we could gather, it gives us a glimpse of the luxurious life of two successful Collectors. This sparked an idea amongst our team to create a program that rewards you, our early adopters, in hopes that you could have a similar journey to what those two Collectors had.

As such, we've created the "Collector’s Program", named after the protagonists of this tale. Thanks to this program, you will now have a first-mover advantage in attracting new recruits from the future Sipher Fleets due to the favored 'safety in numbers' adage in Sipheria. What you can do with this team of Sipher recruits after the release of the game is only limited by your imagination (and the constraints of Smart Contracts).

With this program we are making an effort to recognize those amongst our community members who have already, or are intending to, go above and beyond to support Sipher. This is for those who trust in Sipher's long-term vision while waiting for the game that is currently in development. To those who are currently eligible, or will be joining our Collector’s Program, we would like to once again thank you for your continued trust and support!

How Does the Program Work?

The amount of Sipher NFTs you currently hold will entitle you to a certain amount of Private-sale slots and/or additional Sipher recruits. This system is based on tiers, which mostly depend on the amount of Sipher NFTs that you hold of each race. For the NEKO recruits and/or Private-sale slots, you will only need to hold Sipher INU NFTs; for the BURU recruits and Private-sale slots, you will need to hold both Sipher INU NFTs and Sipher NEKO NFTs; and so on and so forth.

🗒️
For the upcoming drops, there will be more than one snapshot:
  • The first snapshot is considered the DEADLINE for all character launches. It will be used to identify the wallets eligible to claim their rewards based on their applicable tier. For the upcoming BURU, details will be shared in the future, before the BURU launch.
  • Any following snapshots will occur on a random date, and will ONLY be used to CONFIRM your previously identified eligible tier (based on the first snapshot).
    • If you hold the same amount of INUs & NEKOs that were identified on the first snapshot, your initial eligible tier will remain the same.
    • If you hold LESS INUs & NEKOs than on the first snapshot, then this is the amount that will be utilized to consider your eligibility (i.e. your initial eligible tier could be lowered).
    • If you hold MORE INUs & NEKOs than on the first snapshot, these will not be considered for your tier eligibility (i.e. your initial eligible tier will not increase).

Please refer to the FAQ below for more details (dates, time, and how the snapshots will be used).

📌
Please note that each Sipher Recruit* that you are entitled to will be available to mint for FREE (plus gas). *Clarification: Sipher Recruits are essentially a Genesis Sipher NFT of a particular Race/Species. They are not clones.

Refer to the tables below for details regarding how many Sipher NFTs of each race you will need to hold to obtain each of the subsequent races' Sipher recruits and/or Private-sale slots.

FAQs Related to this topic

Do tiers overlap?

Tiers do not overlap. For instance, if you hold 10 Sipher INUs in your wallet you will only be eligible for The High Table (Tier 3) for the NEKO launch.

What if I have more than 10 Siphers (for example if I have 10 Sipher Inus)?

This is wallet based system, meaning that you can have one wallet that qualifies for The High Table (Tier 3), and another (or other) wallet(s) that separately qualifies for one of the three tiers based on the amount of Sipher NFTs in that (or those) wallet(s).

Wen mint?

For those tiers that will receive Sipher recruits (free NFTs), each wallet holder will be able to to mint them for FREE (plus gas) for a specific period of time before or after the public sale, which will be confirmed at a later date for each character species launch.

Why mint?

We have decided to go with this approach with the intention of rewarding those members who are active in our community.

Wen private sale?

For those that receive private-sale slots, there will also be a period of time in which you will be able to purchase your Sipher Recruits. For the NEKO launch, the private sale will start after the public launch (Dutch Auction) ends, and ends 24hrs after. For the future Genesis Sipher races (i.e. Buru, Tori), the amount of time and dates will be confirmed later.

Will the Collector’s Program be a replacement for any character launch Whitelist Programs?

The Collector’s Program and any character whitelist programs are separate.

How will the snapshots be taken?

A snapshot is essentially a record of all wallets and the amount of Sipher Recruits at a specific point in time. There will be more than one snapshot for each character launch (i.e NEKO, BURU, etc.). The first snapshot will always be considered the deadline, which is when we will obtain the full list of wallets eligible and will identify which are the tiers they fall under. Afterward, there may be one or more snapshots taken at random dates closer to each character launch to confirm admission to The Collector’s Program.

The snapshots for the other Sipher Race/Character Launches will be announced at a later date.

What Tier in the Collector’s Program will I be eligible for IF the number of Sipher NFTs in my wallet is different on the 2 snapshots taken?

Answer:

  • For wallets with the same number of Sipher NFTs taken on both snapshots - your tier will be unaffected.
  • For wallets with a different number of Sipher NFTs taken on both snapshots - you will be allocated a tier, based on the snapshot of your wallet with the lowest number of Sipher NFTs.
  • Specifically for the Collector’s Program with regards to the NEKO Launch, please see the following examples to understand your eligibility (snapshot considered for eligibility is marked in green).
