INTRODUCTION TO THE NFT GENESIS BLOCK SALE

 

In celebration of the launch of the Earth Dollar and the Mother Earth Supercomputer (& Blockchain), we are selling the first blocks of the Earth Dollar on the blockchain (Genesis Blocks) as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens). 

What Is a Genesis Block?

A Genesis Block is the name given to the first block a cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, ever mined (in the case of the Earth Dollar is the first block farmed). 

A blockchain consists of a series of so-called blocks that are used to store information related to transactions that occur on a blockchain network. Each of the blocks contains a unique header, and each such block is identified by its block header hash individually. 

These blocks get layered—one on top of the other, with the Genesis Block being the foundation—and they grow in height until the end of the blockchain is reached and the sequence is complete. The layers and deep history of each sequence are one of the things that makes a blockchain-based cryptocurrency so secure.  

Bitcoin’s Genesis Block was the first instance of a proof-of-work blockchain system and is the template for all other blocks in its blockchain. In 2009, Bitcoin’s pseudonymous developer, Satoshi Nakamoto, created the Genesis Block, which launched the cryptocurrency boom that is ongoing today. 

The Earth Dollar’s Genesis Block is the first instance of Proof-of-Utility on the Mother Earth Supercomputer (& Blockchain).

THE NFT GENESIS BLOCK SALE

 

The Genesis Blocks of the Earth Dollar from 0 to 5,000 will be paired with Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) representing physical numismatic limited edition collectible precious metal coins of 99.99% pure gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, etc. These coins also come with a signed certificate of authenticity from the artists. 

Numismatics is a growing field that attracts both history lovers and coin collectors. Numismatic coins are different from regular bullion coins.

When you buy a rare gold or silver numismatic coin such as the Earth Dollar Coins, your purchase also has a numismatic value, which can be many times the value of the precious metal content of that coin. This may make the Earth Dollar Coins more valuable than the gold content, and other precious metals contained in the metal coins.

The Genesis Block, also known as Block 0, is the very first block upon which additional blocks in a blockchain are added. It is effectively the ancestor that every other block can trace its lineage back to since every block references the one preceding it. 

An NFT and One (1) Oz. numismatic limited edition collectible coin of 99.99% pure rhodium (with an engraved genesis block number) will represent Block 0; it will be the most expensive coin of the series.

For example, in the case of the Genesis Block of bitcoin, this began the process of validating bitcoin transactions and introducing new bitcoins into existence. 

This is the same for the Earth Dollar as well. The next block is known as Block 1, Block 2, and so on. 

The buyer in the Genesis NFT Token Sale will receive as follows for each purchase:

  • Earth Dollar Tokens;
  • 1 NFT Token representing the Genesis Block purchased;
  • 1 Physical One (1) Oz. physical “Numismatic” limited edition collectible commemorative coins of 99.99% Pure Precious Metal, stamped with the genesis block purchased;
  • 1 Signed Certificate of Authenticity from the artist.

We will be auctioning off the following NFT Genesis Blocks of the Earth Dollar. 

 

This coin is designed by artists David Kam (the founder of the Earth Dollar) and Glenda Stevens (Anishnabe artist) for Free Nations (a new sovereign general assembly of 1,000 indigenous nations like the United Nations). The design represents the prophecy of the return of the white buffalo half-calf woman to destroy the black snake (oil pipeline) that is destroying the Earth. The rainbow represents the prophecy of the rainbow warriors who will rise up to cleanse the Earth. The water drops in the background represent rain and the tears of Mother Earth.

EXPECTED ECONOMIC IMPACT OF EARTH DOLLAR ON CRYPTO MARKET

 

The Earth Dollar is expected to have a positive impact on the entire cryptocurrency and blockchain industry. The total market size of the cryptocurrency market is $2 billion USD, with Bitcoin accounting for a whopping 41% of the market share and Altcoins holding 59% market share at $1.115 trillion USD. However, with the entry of the Earth Dollar into the market, it is expected to triple the market size of cryptocurrencies to $7 trillion.

Since the Earth Dollar has fully integrated Bitcoin Nodes, Ethereum Nodes and other blockchain nodes, and is initiating the World Basic Income Program, the Earth Dollar is being positioned as a catalyst for the mass adoption of all cryptocurrencies.

MONETARY POLICY

 

The Earth Dollar’s value is protected by the following mechanisms:

  • Augmented Bonding Curve: The Earth Dollar is placing a monetary policy using an “Augmented Bonding Curve”, which is a type of smart-contract and algorithmic monetary policy (AMP) that prevents pump and dump; this will control the exchange, and release of the Earth Dollar into the market.
  • Asset-Backing: The Earth Dollar is backed by $5.28+ trillion in Real Assets, including nature-based land assets called Natural Capital Assets (inground assets of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, carbon credits, spring water, etc.), along with residential properties, and commercial properties with intrinsic value. Other asset classes backing the Earth Dollar may include manufactured assets, creative assets, insurance, and more. The Earth Dollar will be exchangeable into physical limited edition gold coins, silver coins, platinum coins, palladium coins, rhodium coins, and carbon credits in 36 months. 
  • Anti-Inflationary Mechanism: The Earth Dollar will be linked to the Atlantis Exchange, which will be a closed-loop exchange with a built-in anti-inflationary balancing mechanism, which is controlled by Artificial Intelligence. This anti-inflationary mechanism is linked to automated dynamic asset reserves, dynamic currency reserves, and bonding curves. This enables the Earth Dollar currency to be pegged to an increasing buying power when it hits the relative highest exchange value, above the U.S. rate of inflation. 
  • Reinsurance Tokens: The Earth Dollar’s value is further backed by reinsurance tokens, which insures that the Earth Dollar will never fall below the Floor Price. The reinsurance tokens are a form of tokenized insurance that can be held by multiple insurance companies, financial institutions, companies, and members. 
  • Banks: The Earth Dollar is allied with the Bern Bank of Switzerland and the bank’s currency exchange platform to provide the liquidity and exchangeability of the Earth Dollar into USD, Euro, and other currencies. Furthermore, the bank will provide liquidity for token holders by giving lines-of-credit, credit cards and debit cards in spendable currency of up to 70% of the Earth Dollar staked; this will allow the token holder to buy products and services in the real world without having to exchange the Earth Dollar into fiat currencies.

What does the KYC verify?
