Business Plan

The Mint

We are currently selling 1880 Membership Passes in a public mint for $600USD in a dynamic ETH equivalency at time of purchase. Our mint will stay open for a minimum 30-day period while we monitor progress.   

Our strategy during the initial sale of the Membership Passes:    

Clear and consistent communication of our business model and value proposition in social messaging via Web3 and Web2 platforms. Consistent appearances on spaces, podcasts, and media both in Web3 and Web2. Partnership acquisitions to create further awareness of the business. We reserve the right to close the mint at any time.  If there are tokens remaining, we may keep some in reserve and/or burn the balance.  

post mint

Our post-mint plan begins with the distribution of KYC 1099 (or international equivalent) documents and independent contractor agreements to all Key Society and genesis pass holders.   We will allow an adequate timeframe for these documents to be filled out and returned.   Once this process is complete, we will launch our online Clubhouse Archives Marketplace.  The site is token-gated and includes a minting platform, user profiles, and a voting area for product development.   

The Complimentary Garment - Our First Community-Led Product 

We will collectively work on our first product as a community, the “HODL” Crew Neck Pullover Sweatshirt.  The product will then be developed and produced upon approval.  The community will be updated throughout with images and information to better understand and be a part of both the design and manufacturing processes.   

The First Collection - By and For The Community

Upon delivery of our complimentary garment, the community will begin work on a small men's and women's collection (SKU count TBD) that we will sell to the broader Web3 community.  Our Membership Pass holders will have preferred access to these products at launch, and/or may receive exclusive pieces for members only.     

Long-Term Vision

Our plan is to continue acquiring partnerships with Web3 native and non-native brands, artists, and projects with the intent to create and sell high-quality products in collaboration with their branding.  We will explore creating stock products (large quantity units to stock and ship) for the brand to drive revenue in the native Web3 space.  We will also look at opportunities to expand our distribution through traditional commerce and e-commerce channels.  An example of this would be an exclusive collection for a department store. Above all, we will continue building brand equity through product category expansions, strategic partnerships, and business development.     

Use of Membership Pass Funds

80% will be put into the treasury to continue funding the future of the project.  20% will be allocated and distributed to pay back start-up expenses including business formation, trademark, smart contract generation, minting site, auditing, deployment, marketing, PR, and general operating expenses.
