NOTION CARD AND COMMENTS: https://www.notion.so/Secret-Humanity-Society-Cards-605d17be7b224067a8b611125e9790a2
My name is Jose but I also go by my designer/artist’s name, Rorschach. I’m currently splitting my time as a tech entrepreneur and as a designer, creating NFTs for good purposes.
I’ve been working on an NFT collection called the “Secret Humanity Society Cards”. I want to create a network where donors or “SHS members”, make their resources matter for good, bring solidarity and kindness to the world as well as committing ourselves to creating a healthy and sustainable planet.
The items essentially are a series of trading cards where most of the funds collected can be used to raise money for charity and environmentally friendly projects.
I’m planning to create 91 unique cards in total, divided by 5 different triers of scarcity; each with different value, design, and complexity.

How does your project benefit the NEAR and Mintbase NFT ecosystem? *
I want to work on projects that not only provides value to the NFT community, but also to the society in general.
The idea is to create a new NFT market which provides value to donors, our society and our planet by combining IP uniqueness, collectibles and similar to real-world membership status.
I believe that if there are people that are willing to spend thousands of dollars worth of crypto for a piece of IP, I’m sure there are people that will also value a piece of IP that is thought to do good and bring solidarity & kindness to the world.
Please provide a timeline and milestones for your project (funds will be granted after completion) *
I already started designing the items and launching the website. I expect to finalize all the designs by the end of April.
I believe these type of projects need huge marketing efforts. I think the project is valuable enough to succeed; the quality of the design is there and the mission/values are there as well. If I can get this project out there and have a lot of exposure, I believe I can make it work.
SOME RELEVANT COMMENTS FROM NOTION:
- What is the advantage of donating through the project, instead of directly donating to a charity of someone’s choice?
To start with, I don’t believe that most of the people who are currently buying NFTs are philanthropists; they probably buy NFTs for the same reasons people buy art, or Pokemon cards — they are scarce and provides a unique connection to the creator, some sort of value that only each of us understand.
I will not be trying to sell a donation approach or method, I’ll still be trying to sell an NFT. The donation is simply an added value or UVP; a value that most of the rest of NFTs won’t have.
Selling the NFTs will be a channel for donations. millions are currently being spend on NFTs that don’t provide any value at all for society; most of these funds are not being used for good porpuses, so I believe that by creating this channel, positive impact can be created, even if it’s just the concecuence of the act.
I’ll be selling a collectible that grants you access to a sort of club. A network of people that know what they have done to adquire these items, and know what value they have provided to society.
I’m also considering to create physical cards that reflects the virtual, frame it like the PSA rating cards and send it to donors; this will improve even more the feeling of membership. However, this will require even more energy and resources obviusly.
- Would it be possible to have cards with a lower price for people who have a smaller donation budget?
Yes. I think it’s a good idea, because obviously every kind a donation is welcome. However, I also believe creating a premium/VIP feeling to the cards is also important, so I think there should be a balance. Maybe 1 ETH can be a good base price point.
- Phase 1: Complete Artwork designs
- Phase 2: Mint artworks on Mintbase and other platforms.
