Today seems like an interesting day to start a blog, but as CZ of Binance would say, "In the spirit of transparency," it's time for us to give you all regular updates as to where we are with our community development, software development, product release dates, and upcoming partnerships.
Gah, I feel like the term "Community" in the web3 space is so overly emphasized. Most of the "communities" I've found myself in are just a bunch of people repeatedly saying "GM," "WAGMI," "HODL," and "BUIDL" while nothing actually gets developed.
But, I dare say we're looking to do this whole "community" thing differently.
Here are the things we want to do:
1. We're looking for people that want to be part of our team: 👩🏾🤝👨🏼
Software Developers, Community Managers, Virtual Assistants, and more. We have a lot of positions that will be opening up over the next 3 months and we'd like to handpick our team members from our early community.
2. We're looking for people that believe in our Values, Purpose, & Mission: 🎖️
To start, we don't go by the company standard "Mission, Vision, Values." We go by "Values, Purpose, Mission," specifically in that order. Feel free to read more about our Values, Purpose, Mission Here.
3. We're looking for Testers and Early-Adopters: 🕵️
We want to offer an early round of products to select individuals that are willing to collaborate with us with feedback. What they like, what they hate, and every other opinion that may help us improve our offering.
We'll be opening our Discord channel to select individuals on November 11th, 2022.
Now... let's discuss...
Some of you are probably more curious about the physical development of our products and technology. ⌚️🪙 We're actually ahead of schedule on that part. It's the software element that we've had to put most of our efforts into.
So far we have:
Finished developing the NOA Tag Technology; which is the encryption protocol that protects the NFC chips and the data housed within them.
Finished the decentralized profiles associated with every physical product.
The DApp that mints an NFT to be associated with a physical product once a product begins manufacturing.
Now, we're working on two major features:
The decentralized API that integrates the NFT to the decentralized profile.
The IRL Tokengating protocol.
We've finished the initial builds, but we're still going through testing to make sure there aren't any major bugs when we release our first round of products.
Product Release Dates
This is a painful subject since we've pushed back product releases several times, but we want to make sure we get this right. At this point, we're announcing this week that our official Product Release will be November 20th, 2022 for the Founder's Line Watches (All 3 Options Color), AGAMI Organic Hoodies, and the AGAMI Challenge Coins. Each of these products will be integrated with the NOA Tags™.
Because this will be our first run of product to be integrated with the NOA Tags™, we will be handling our delivery process with great care. Because the delivery will be offered worldwide, some of the deliveries will take up to 90 days to reach some destinations.
We have several partnerships to announce, but we'll keep with two for this first blog post.
LUMI is a brand new strategic partnership that we will be discussing heavily over the next few months. The projects we'll be working on with them will be massive, so we want to release new details on an ongoing basis.
No.3 Magazine is the very first company outside of our own to be integrating our technology into their physical products. We'll be providing integration services and NOA Tag™ manufacturing for their physical Web3 Magazine.
