Frequently Asked Questions
What is C.A.P.E.S.?
C.A.P.E.S. stands for Creative Association of Peacefully Empowered Superheroes. C.A.P.E.S. is the story of 3 young adults who want to positively impact the world and their community through collaboration, art contests, quizzes, solving puzzles,… C.A.P.E.S. is about players and their superheroes from 3 factions (the spiritualists, the industrialists, the technologists) uniting to solve Earth Challenges and, at the same time, support charities in the “real” world.
Why are we doing this?
At C.A.P.E.S., we believe that NFT technology can not only support a fan-based content creation combining an educational purpose with a potential financial benefit for players and collectors alike but it also offers a unique opportunity to do good as at least 10% of the proceeds are supporting charities.
In other words, by combining the NFT technology (with some cool innovations of course) with players and collectors’ willingness to have fun and get rewarded, we know that we can collectively have a huge positive impact on the world.
How did C.A.P.E.S. come about?
C.A.P.E.S. is an initiative launched in 2021 by GIVE Nation with the purpose of providing a fun tool for communities such as schools or companies to engage around the different challenges that our society faces.
In collaboration with GIVE Nation, C.A.P.E.S. will offer in its game “Earth Challenges™” which can be solved by players as they learn about the related issues while hunting for clues. When an Earth Challenge™ is solved, donations are triggered to the charities tackling this very issue in the “real” world.
What is an Earth Challenge™?
As the storyline of C.A.P.E.S. unfolds, players will be presented with Earth Challenges™. These puzzles of gradually increasing complexity will appear once players’ superheroes have reached a certain stat threshold. Once the enigma is figured out (players will have access to clues made available on partnering websites including GIVE Nation’s and other charities), players that have collaborated to solve the puzzle will receive a rare RewardNFT™ and unlock donations to the charities chosen when the challenge was issued. Such NFT can then be kept to solve further challenges or sold on our marketplace (coming soon).
An Earth Challenge™ can last a few days, weeks or months or even, why not, a few years, involving up to millions of engaged players. Meanwhile, the CAPES community and its partners may continue contributing to the cause, increasing the overall donations several fold.
What is a RewardNFT™?
A RewardNFT™ is a cool new technology, currently being developed on Tezos, that combines the best of two worlds, allowing us to create, in technical terms, a NFFT. Following the ERC20 standard, our players will soon be able to own these one of a kind tokens. A RewardNFT™ is not only a standard NFT where you will be able to own your favorite character but also where donations will be stored while the related Earth Challenge is being solved.
In other words, we expect that a RewardNFT™ will not only be rare but also will have a special mention in its metadata of the amount donated thus increasing its perceived value.
Give me an example of an Earth Challenge™?
Let’s say that you have brought your superheroes to a decent level, bringing your combined body, mind and speed stats above 15 points. An Earth Challenge™ is presented to you and the people you play with about solving the Water challenges in Africa.
As you and your team hunt for clues throughout the partnering charities and websites, you learn more about the issue affecting so many people. Thanks to your information gathering, you decide that you need to invite Sparkler into the game which puts you in a unique position to help solve the challenge. You may still have to unlock other challenges to use their RewardNFTs™ in order to solve this one!
While you and your team (and other teams throughout the world) continue to find their way into the puzzle at hand, players, communities and partners can increase the Donation Pool, creating further excitement amongst players.
Charities such as GIVE Nation, CharityWater or Water.org are partnering with the challenge and will receive part of the collected donations to help solve the issue through education or direct equipment of villages in Africa.
Where are donations coming from?
When creating an Earth Challenge™, our partner GIVE Nation selects the charities best positioned to tackle the described issue. A RewardNFT™ is then created. Each charity receives a predetermined percentage of the donations stored in this RewardNFT™. The first donations come from the sale of our decks where 10% of our revenue is going to support the “Earth Challenges”. In addition, through our platform, players, partners and companies are enticed to match C.A.P.E.S.’ donation to help further support the described cause.
