Chris: Hi! Please introduce yourself.
Adrian: My name is Adrian and I am the founder and CEO of Nclip collectibles. I have been interested in NFTs and their development for a long time. As NFTs grew larger and larger, I was wondering why the big content creators don’t offer their own collections of NFTs for their community. So I kept asking myself: what do content creators have? The answer: large communities, so why should they sell NFTs as unique? And what don’t the creators have? Exactly, the time and knowledge to create large collections with several thousand different files. That’s exactly what I developed a solution for with NClip.
Chris: NClip is an unconventional platform that offers creators the opportunity to sell their work. Tell us more about the idea behind this platform.
Adrian: The idea is as described above: content creators have little time and often no programming knowledge at all. They also don’t have 10,000 different photos to quickly post a collection that also adds a personal touch. So we’ve built our platform where each set is divided into five rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. For these five rarities, a creator needs at least five files. For example, he can use five different images, videos, audios or 3D models, where the coolest Archive should of course be Legendary. We kept thinking about what a creator would do when they came to us with a single video, very simple: we put the video in each NFT and take a cool thumbnail representing the rarities. So each NFT has the creator’s video as its main content, and each rarity has a different thumbnail image in addition to the attribute. On our site, NFTs are presented as trading cards. The preview image or 3D model is displayed directly and is obvious when there is a video on the NFT. It is then played with a mouse click. Finally, we also developed the possibility to create a single file as NFT. Here the Creators have the possibility to choose the attributes with total freedom. So you can create a Small Edition Legendary NFT for a higher price or a Common Large Edition for a small price. Of course, you can also use chosen attributes freely. Rarities are not mandatory.
Chris: So how do you define the NFT tokens that will be created by individual creators? What will the tokens represent?
Adrian: This is exactly the strength of NClip. We can create collectibles from any content imaginable, and the creator takes less than 5 minutes. Images, videos, videos with thumbnails, audios, audios with thumbnails and 3D models. I leave the creative work to the people who can: The Creators. Any number of NFTs are then created from these five or six files. The creator decides how many he wants to offer for his community. There is no upper limit.
Chris: Other than this, when will all the creations be available to purchase? How many tokens will you throw in the public mintage?
Adrian: Basically, the creator also decides that. You can choose when your NFT Drop should appear. We currently have a launch NFT for early members of our community. We offer this for less than 0.2 USD. We do not want people to have to make large investments to learn about our principle. This NFT shows how this works with video and preview images. As a video, every NFT, no matter the rarity, has the NClip trailer and every rarity has the NClip logo in the rarity’s color. Next, we’ll release a 3D model of NClip so people can see how 3D models are rendered in NClip. We will inform you about the content through our social media channels (Twitter, InstagramY website).
Chris: Also, will it be possible for buyers to preview the content of the token before making the purchase? How will investors make investment decisions?
Adrian: Yes, in any case. No one should buy anything blind. You cannot see the content before a drop appears. However, as soon as the time is up, the NFT will be displayed in the common version in the store. If you press “see more”, you will get a detailed description of all possible content. You can find out exactly who created the NFT, how many editions there are, and which non-profit organization the creator chose. I will tell you more about that later. With NClip, I want to unite the NFT and Creator economies and make NFTs more collectible than items of pure speculation. Since the maker community naturally has a stronger bond with maker NFTs than randomly generated images, a collector can pay large sums for their maker’s NFT of the correct rarity with the proper ID. But I am looking forward to seeing how the community will develop in this area.
Chris: Similarly, how does NClip decide on token rarities? Will the price of rare tokens be higher than those that are not so rare?
Adrian: Each NFT in NClip costs the same price. The creator sets the price once when creating. However, it is important to understand that when he buys it, he is paying the price of a common NFT. Whoever gets a higher value rarity wins. Nobody loses anything. Rarities are randomly generated. So these are blind boxes. If a creator decides to sell 30,000 copies, it will always be 50%, so in this case 15,000 copies of the rarity will be common. Uncommon will appear at 25%, Rare at 15%, Epic at 8%, and Legendary at 2%. Rarities are not simply minted one after another and then sold. Therefore, it is possible for a token with ID 6 to be legendary. Of course, that would be the best case. Identification rarities also differ for each collection. You are probably wondering what happened to ID 1-5. I think this information fits here. ID 1-5 is always created before the start of public minting. These will be auctioned off after the fundraiser for the charity chosen by the creator when creating them. These auctions always start when the collections are sold out. This way, collectors can still bid on the desired NFT with the best ID and do some good with it.
Chris: Speaking of pricing, how much will it cost to purchase an NFT NClip? What is the mint rate?
Adrian: As already mentioned, the creator sets the price when creating. Here at NClip we don’t make any specifications either. For example, our launch NFT costs less than 0.2 USD and the 3D model that we will launch soon will cost less than 5 USD. We try to make sure that NFTs are accessible to everyone and that no one has to take big risks. Since we rely on the Polygon Blockchain, gas fees are negligible. Mining an NFT costs less than 0.01 cents. However, Polygon also has the advantage that it is already based on Proof of Stake and therefore consumes much less energy than PoW blockchains, and if someone wants to secure their NFTs through the huge Ethereum network, you can always transfer NFT from Polygon to Ethereum and vice versa. .
Chris: In short, shed some light on the roadmap for the future of NFT. How does NFT plan to expand the reach for its investors?
Adrian: We have great ideas for the future. From the beginning it was important to me not to just make promises in response to that question, which is why we commissioned a 3D room before launch, which is currently in development. This room functions as a gallery. Users appear as avatars and can move freely. You can hang your NFTs anywhere on the wall in the room if they are pictures/audios/videos. 3D models can be freely positioned, rotated and scaled in space. On our website you can already see a video of the current state.
In order not to create inflation with our NFTs, we will release NClip exclusive NFTs that are not for sale. These can only be obtained by trading three existing NFTs of a rarity. For example, you can exchange three common NFTs for one rare exclusive NFT. Thus, we get deflationary NFTs, and no NFT loses significance over time. So secure your NFT launch even if the content isn’t spectacular.
There will be a user feed in the future where the community can share their collectibles, their galleries, or just a few nice words. There will also be an experience and collection point system. Then, various modifications to the gallery are linked to the level of the collector. There will also be points leaderboards, and the top of those leaderboards will be rewarded with exclusive NFTs. A rating system for the gallery is also being planned. Unfortunately, we are a small team and therefore cannot develop everything at once. However, when it comes to the order, we will listen to the wishes of our community. We will be happy to welcome you there.
