Denizen launches a non-fungible token (NFT) collection of astronaut-themed designer toys. The collection will entitle holders to guaranteed full refunds for up to 30 days after reveal. The guarantee is permanently programmed into the NFT smart contract itself and cannot be changed by the team.
The market has been eager to see a paradigm shift in the current NFT market, where it is still plagued by rug pulls, cash grabs, speculation and short-term profit-taking. The market has been calling for more accountability and fairness to allow NFT projects to transform into a long-term sustainable model that can reach mainstream adoption. Denizen aims to pioneer that front, making the NFT space a more friendly place.
Provably Fair Mechanism
Denizen has lived up to this vision of making a change in the NFT market by introducing its provably fair distribution mechanism. During reveal, NFTs will be allocated to owners using Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) in a provably random manner that cannot be manipulated or predicted by anyone, including miners and founders. This feature prevents miners or founders from acquiring rare NFTs before they are reveal.ed
In addition, Denizen will host all metadata on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). Unlike most NFT collections that serve metadata over a centralized Application Programming Interface (API), the collection will be censorship-resistant and immune to server shutdowns.
Guaranteed Full Refunds
The Denizen NFT contract will include a refund function that will allow any holder to claim full refunds for up to 30 days after reveal. For example, an NFT that was minted during the whitelist sale will be eligible for refund at the whitelist mint price of 0.08 ETH, whereas an NFT minted during the public sale will be eligible for a refund at the public mint price of 0.1 ETH.
The contract also prevents the founding team from withdrawing not more than 50% of funds raised before the 30-days refund period is up. This will allow the contract to maintain adequate reserves for the refund period.
