[PROPOSAL] Developing NFTBoxes development is a unique service for crypto marketplace and investors

NFTBoxes

Mission

NFTboxes marketplace - is a unique service that is provided on our own marketplace where you can create, craft, store, buy and sell NFTs, Lootboxes and SuperLootBox from various projects. It is developed for games and individuals, for the project’s own marketing purposes as a part of partnerships, alliances or promotions.

Our mission is to provide every person, community or project equal opportunity to easily use the NFT platform for their various purposes built on NEAR Blockchain.

The incredible surge in the growth of digital art is the most interesting trend in recent times. The popularity of NFT is growing not only among collectors, but also among investors, projects, gamers and traders.

NFT brings creators millions of dollars and gives buyers the right to a “piece of the Internet Art”. Tokens, Pictures, music, videos, GIFs and even posts in social networks can now be bought on marketplaces in such Boxes. It is another trend and a new exciting fun.

Our goal is to provide the best service in the NFT sphere and attract a wide range of investors for their projects development.

Problem

We are looking for new ways to promote tokens and creativity. New kind of airdrop is needed with a small commission. Most of the NFTBoxes that are present on the market are boxes that were created by a concrete project as its own product. So it is not for everyone.

Solution

You can sell your tokens in a new way in the form of boxes.

Lootboxes and SuperLootBox is another way of a trend. The author makes his tokens, puts his tokens into loot boxes. Users in explorer find boxes and collect gifts.

It has an element of surprise and additional fun. Overcoming the psychological barrier before buying a lootbox is easier than buying a specific item for a lot of money. The logic is simple: it is better to get a chance to drop a valuable item for just $ 2 than the item itself worth $ 20. It is the low price of the lootbox, along with the chance to purchase a more valuable item, that stimulates the buyer.

The difference between our NFTboxes is that:

  1. Projects and individuals do not need to spend money on developers, create their own sites with algorithms, and so on. They can come to the NFTBoxes marketplace and immediately create their own NFT and LootBox and link their community to the mint of their boxes, present it or sell on the marketplace.

That allows to:

  • save time
  • save money
  • be more flexible in marketing aspects.
  1. Our service will have SuperLootBoxes - these are the boxes which, when minted, allow users to get 3 to 5 tokens from different projects. All projects will be moderated, so these boxes will have a special value. Users who mint such lootboxes become holders in various projects at once and also get a liquid volume of tokens.

There can be up to 100 different projects in a SuperLootBox, which means there can be up to 100 different tokens.

Idea of Sponsor collaboration and attraction of new and new project is to give more value for lower price and involve more users and earn more together rather than individually. Furthermore NEAR blockchain gains more followers.

We believe that NFTBoxes is gaining popularity and is in high demand so it will attract a great audience.

For the end user the cost of unpacking NFTBox or Lootbox is minimal - he only pays the commission approximately 2$ for using a service and commissions are to be taken in NEAR token to promote the project.

The value of NFTBox greatly exceeds the commission, so the service is in huge demand and we see great opportunities here.

Features of a platform and planned contracts

  • changing the price of the NFT

Description of service

Lootbox is a stack of the same NFT, which keeps a link to a list of tokens and NFT.

Creating a lootbox is transferring values from the user’s wallet to the contract, and getting a bunch of NFT tokens in return. Each token as a key can unpack the box and take a random gift from the list of values.

The procedure of creating a lootbox looks like this: the user selects his tokens and NFT on the site, specifies their transferable amount, specifies the count of drops and clicks the “create” button - the contract is called, which takes the specified values to his address and generates NFT equal to the number of falls to the user’s wallet.

Such lootboxes are visible to all on the marketplace of lootboxes.

The selected lootbox can be unpacked. Unpacking a lootbox is the opposite procedure to creating one. The random gift is given to the user, and the lootbox is destroyed.

The created lootbox can be sent for moderation to increase the level of trust. Press the “send to moderation” button - a contract is called, which will take the commission and change the state of the lootbox to “submitted to moderation”.

In the moderation window you can see requests to change the state of the lootbox. The moderator can approve, reject and write a comment.

Promoted lootbox can be sent to the top or to the SuperLootBox, this is also done by changing the state of a lootbox and confirmation through moderation.

Getting into the SuperLootBox transfers values to the main pool.

SuperLootBox is a lootbox, which is combined from different lootboxes (sharebox).

Users on the lootbox marketplace see one large SuperLootBox. When unpacking a random gift is selected from many different lootboxes.

Hey!

Awesome detailed proposal and neat idea!

The value requested is far beyond any of the budgets which the DAOs and funding verticals here can distribute, though.

I’d recommend checking out the NEAR Grants programme if you haven’t done so already:

Good afternoon, how can I apply for a grant?

Hey, the steps for applying for a grant are here:

Hi, thanks for responding. Actually, we forgot to specify our current need. We need a lot less NEAR token, as we have the MVP of the project already in readiness at a late stage. Let’s call each other and discuss the details.

Hi, I hope your call went well!
I’m a DAO member from human guild and have a couple of questions about the project:
1_ the name is dangerously similar along with the concept itself to this project.
How do you plan to relate with your twin, which is actually quite famous in the mainstream NFT world (given that the main investor is Pranksy)?
2_ I would like to understand more properly what you guys mean by !applying for moderation of the lootbox. In order to get approval all sponsors have to prove that the declared value of the lootbox is true. This is done to prevent cheating".
We already have public data sources for NFT value on the Near blockchain, I think that transparency is essential in this case to make sure the moderation process is managed correctly towards potential collaborators.
Would you please elaborate the way you intend to select the collaborators? which would be the requirement? How do this requirements align with your vision?
3_ (and this is a personal question), Do you guys have a vision to build your project upon?

Please take your time to answer and feel free to reapply in the DAO once you think you answered this questions.
