The following post was published on April 1st 2023 as an April fools prank to the community. This announcement is not legitimate beyond being an April fools joke.
Hi Folks, it's been a little while since I've had the time to give you an all an update on the huge amount of work the team and I are doing behind the scenes here, and I'm really proud to be able to announce today the launch of a new line of NFTs dedicated to TF and the TF Network as a whole.
As many of you will already be aware, I'm a huge supporter of the potential that NFTs have both for communities like ours, as well as a huge variety of creative lines, and it's why this announcement is so significant for us, and puts us a step forward to being able to have TF be self sufficient from a funding perspective.
I've been working with select members of the executive team for the last year or so on bringing this to life, and am pleased to announce the two main areas we are focusing all of our future effort into going forward.
TF Created NFTs
We will be growing our creative team (Currently primarily master builders) to bring in artists and creatives that will enable us to create TF original NFTs which we can then sell back into the community. These NFTs will start at £15 once we launch in July of 2023. These NFTs will vary in their theme throughout the year starting with our summer vacation theme which will land with our first wave. In addition to the theme variation, we intent to launch various limited edition items including content variations of our logo, as well as month specific NFTs for special events (December for example would have a Christmas themed NFT that is also exclusive for December 2023)
With immediate effect we are hereby suspending all current development efforts indefinitely and will continue to rely on ViaVersion to enable us to work on a brand new concept never before seen in a Minecraft community.
We will be converting all existing Schematics as well as any newly created schematics into restricted assets as NFTs, once this change is complete you will only be able to select and paste a schematic if your Minecraft profile (Linked to your forum profile linked to one of our approved NFT Marketplaces) verifies you hold current ownership of the NFT. We will also be fully blocking the ability to delete or otherwise share these schematics in other ways including removing them from the HTTPD endpoint shortly.
We will also with this change be enforcing a minimum number of schematics per month from all past and present master builders, which will require 15 quality schematics per month. Failure to meet this target will result in an indefinite ban.
We will be selling these NFTs for £12.50 each with the ability for users to then sell these on if they so choose. There will be no upper limit for the asking price of such items.
Our developers will be working hard over the coming weeks to make this a reality and I'm so excited for this to launch.
As many of you will be aware, TF has never accepted donations and costs a significant amount of money to operate. Our launch of NFT technology both brings us into the present day of tech as well as enabling us to be provided with a source of income which doesn't require pay to play or advertisements in game.
I hope you will join me in welcoming these changes, and I'm so very excited to see this launch!
