Non-Zone

A profit-sharing marketplace of stories.

Description

Our Solution uses Storytelling, Geo-Fencing and Blockchain to create a global map of "special places." Users (Zoners/Travelers) can visit usual roads/streets - or may travel on the other side of the world - and can easily "pin" a new Story, based on their personal connection with it. Any time Users "pin" a new location, coordinates are added automatically, and they need to add a title/description/hashtag for the Story to be added to the map. The Mobile app works as an actual map for Travelers, and as a "Zone Detector" - sending Travelers a pop-up/audio notification any time they enter a new non-zone where stories have already been created. Inspiration: ◦ Social Distancing COVID turned crowded, lively centers in "non-places", as described by Marc Augé – mere places of transit, where the human beings remain anonymous - and the event, or situation is not relevant enough to be remembered. ◦ A Non-Zone is the exact opposite of this. It's a personal place. A place with a Story. Where something has happened. ◦ Not a map of Locations, then but a map of Stories – to create a deeper human connection in the times of Social Distancing, and a richer traveling experience, whether somewhere on the other side of the world, or right downstairs, in a common road.

How it's made

- We use a composable, upgradable ERC721 contract for parent (Stories) and children (Interactions) NFTs - It relies on Polygon to ensure speed and interoperability of L2, in combination with Biconomy for meta-transactions and usability. - Any time a new story receives a first external interaction, the creator starts receiving a stream of h-SPACE tokens thanks to our integration with Superfluid. - Interactions are tracked ("mapped") through TheGraph's Matic Subgraph for Business Distribution purposes. The more interactions a story receives, the more profitable it becomes - which creates a sort of "interest-bearing NFT" dynamics. # Non-Zone's Tokenomics ## Abstract Non-Zone's tokenomics includes: - Story NFTs --> Upgradeable ERC721. - h-SPACE --> Alpha token for the NFT hack. - SPACE --> Distance-based token, distributed at the launch. - SPACE is **the first Distance-Based Token (and use-case) associated to Storytelling, NFT & Geo-caching.** ## Terms ### Zones: Geo-fenced areas of 96 M², the average distance covered by a person in 1 minute. In each Zone there can be up to 16 stories. ### Story: An NFT "pinned" on Non-Zone Map. Each Story is identified by: - Title (up to 6 words) - Description (the actual text of the Story) - Snapshot (a picture/video associated to the Story) - Type [Fiction (= a fictional event) or Memory (= a personal event associated to the place)] - We use a Composable NFT structure, where each Story is a _parent NFT_, and each Interaction with that Story is _child NFT_. - _Child NFTs_ (Interactions) can be tracked on the Polygon network using TheGraph's Subgraph on MATIC. - **Story NFTs are natively minted on Polygon.** ### Scarcity: There are 15 billion M² of land in the world. If we consider: - 96 M² per Zone, - 16 Stories per Zone, - 15 000 000 000 M² of total area, - 15 000 000 000 / 96 * 16 = 2 500 000 000 Stories - By default, **we have 2.5 Billion stories** to be told, and to be added to the map. ### Zoners: Users who download the mobile app, and "pin" a new Story on the map. Once a new Story receives its first interaction from a different user (_Explorer_), a new Stream of SPACE (h-SPACE for this hack) will be opened towards Zoner's account. This is made possible thanks to our integration with Superfluid, and its CFA (Constant Flow Agreement) feature. ### Explorer An User who reads, discovers and interacts with the stories on the map. We use the concept of _meaningful interaction_ to let Zoners and Explorers connect through a story located in a real-world spot. Examples of meaningful interactions are: - Leave a comment/signature on the Wall (free) - "Collect" the Story, as a composable NFT, in your Zone Passport (paid) - "Tip" (the Zoner/Author) (free, 100% of tips go to the Author) - "Add your Story" - the Explorer can add a Snapshot to the original Story, or continue it, adding a small chapter. It's a paid interaction, but the Contributor receives future shares of the profit based on the value of its Contribution. ## NFT Hack Distribution ### h-SPACE (v0.1, NFT Hack) - Only 500 h-SPACE (Hack SPACE) generated on Polygon. - Zoners (Creators) can create and pin their first story for free. - Once a new Story receives its first interaction from an _Explorer_, a new Stream of h-SPACE is opened towards _Zoner_'s account. - h-SPACE is necessary for creating additional stories (after the 1st): 1. I / 0 2. II / 4,5 3. III / 7 4. IV / 9 5. V / 10,5 6. VI / 11,5 7. VII / 13 8. XVIII / 13,5 9. IX / 14,5 10. X / 15 11. XI / 15,5 12. XII / 16 13. XIII / 17 14. XIV / 17,5 15. XV / 18 16. XVI / 18 - Each "Interaction" is determined (_mapped_) using *theGraph's MATIC Subgraph* - Interactions are _child NFTs_ attached to the _parent NFT_ (the Story), this way we can keep track of them, and determine their value-added, and their ratio respect the total amount of Interactions. - The first 50 users connecting a Wallet and customizing their account will receive 5 MATIC, which covers more or less 3 paid interactions. ### h-SPACE CFA on Superfluid: - 1st 20 Stories receiving an external (paid) interaction will receive a continuous Stream of h-SPACE - The conditions of the h-SPACE streams are based on a Constant Flow Agreement on Superfluid. - Zoners may have multiple active Stories, but they can receive only 1 h-SPACE stream during this phase. - h-SPACE Stream is based on: 1. 15 days of Distribution: _d-tot_ 2. daily distribution to be streamed (all addresses): _dh-SPACE = tot h-SPACE * 2 / d-left_ 3. daily Zoner's reward: _dh-SPACE / (s-Int / t-Int)_
