The Future of the Ethos NFT Collection.

Dens Akoka · Feb 17, 2023 · 3min read

As a team, we at Calileo are incredibly grateful to our strong and loyal community for their unwavering faith in us. Your support has allowed us to develop the Alpha and Beta versions of the platform through the sales of our Ethos NFT Collection, which is a 10k generative collection that will provide special utility on the Calileo platform. These utilities include Alpha access, the ability to stake and earn $CAL, and priority access to the early rounds of the $CAL token sales in March and April.

With upcoming growth catalysts including the $CAL token sale and the Alpha version of the platform on the horizon, we will be reducing the total supply of the Ethos NFT Collection to 3k. The mint on FrameIt will stop at 20 UTC this Sunday (19th February), and the last batch of Ethos NFTs will be available for minting on March 2nd on our own website, very close to the same time our KYC process for the $CAL token seed sale opens.

During the hiatus between stopping the mint and reopening it on the 2nd of March, we will be rapidly approaching the launch of our alpha version, the $CAL token sale will be imminent, and we will also host some fun community events such as our popular Sweep the Floor contests. The value of the Ethos NFT collection in relation to the Calileo platform will become apparent. The last drop will include the remaining unminted 1/1 NFTs, the rank 1 and  2, and a more concentrated ratio of rare memberships as opposed to other drops but the proportion of the supply will retain the same logical structure.

We want to reaffirm our gratitude to the community for their support and restate that all Ethos NFTs will bring special privileges and perks on the Calileo platform. Those who have minted or hold a membership level Ethos will be eligible for the unique opportunity to participate in the $CAL token sale, with the seed sale (1st round) being reserved for those with a Moon or Diamond membership NFT.

The Ethos community is the bedrock of the Calileo platform, and we value your support immensely. This is a huge opportunity for the public to join us on our journey to revolutionize social media forever by creating the world’s leading community-built social platform, powered by the MultiversX blockchain.

Exciting times are ahead for Calileo and its community, and we are fully focused on our vision of building a decentralized social network that puts the power back into the hands of the users. Thank you for your continued support, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Calileo fam 👋

Since our inception, the team at Calileo has realized how important a strong and vibrant community foundation is to the overall success of a project. We strive to build one of the most engaging community spaces in the entire ecosystem. 

2023 will be a huge year for Calileo as we release our Alpha Version in March 2023, which will be available for testing by our Ethos NFT holders and community leaders.

What is the Ethos Games? 👇

With that in mind, we are pleased to announce our latest and most exciting competition, the Weekly Ethos Games! This contest will feature massive prizes along with community bonding, friendly competition, and abundant opportunity. Participants will compete across 4 events (categories) to win huge prizes each week. The top 5 participants in each event receive points and the wallet with the most points at the end of the week will win the Olympian Of The Week #OOTW (along with the huge prizes).

The Events 👇

  1. Most Mints Overall
  2. Highest Ranked Mint
  3. Most Sweeps Under 0.8 EGLD
  4. Highest Overall Buying Volume Off Secondary

If your Herotag is within the Top 5 of any categories, you will receive points based on the following table:

Rank Points
1st
8 points
2nd
6 points
3rd
4 points
4th
2 points
5th
1 point

The Rules 👇

  • Offers and p2p tradings and arrangements aren’t allowed for the sweep category.
  • Only direct buys raising the floor price are allowed for the sweep category.
  • Sweeps under 0.6 EGLD are worth 3 points, under 0.7 EGLD 2 points, and under 0.8 EGLD 1 point.
  • The overall 3-10th place will get on a lucky wheel to win a free Ethos.

The prizes 👇

The winner of each category will receive 2 EGLD sent directly to their wallet by Calileo (8 EGLD to be won in total).

🥇 The Olympian Of The Week #OOTW will take home the grand prize of 3 EGLD and 1 Ethos NFT! The Olympian Of The Week #OOTW is determined by the highest point scorer across all 4 categories. 

🥈 Second place on the overall leaderboard will win 2 $EGLD and 1 x @EthosNFTs.

🥉 Third place on the overall leaderboard will win 1 $EGLD and 1 x Ethos

It’s possible for one wallet to win all 4 categories, leading to a points total of 32 (8+8+8+8). 

In this example, this wallet address would win every prize, totalling 14 EGLD and 2 Ethos NFTs.

We want to create the BEST NFT community in existence and we want to create a competition that does that vision justice consistently. 

The competition will run each week from Monday 00:01 UTC – Friday 23:59 UTC. Prizes will be distributed on Saturday and Sunday.

Prize pools will be confirmed at the beginning of each week but you can be sure that you won’t want to miss this.

Join our community and let’s build the future of social media on MultiversX together and win some HUGE prizes along the way.

Who will win the Ethos Olympics and grab the inaugural Ethos Olympian Of The Week title (#OOTW)?

Discover the ETHOS Story.

Dens Akoka · Jan 4, 2023 · 4min read

Our story begins in Calileo, a small town in the ancient Roman Empire, where hard work, honesty, and the pursuit of excellence were valued above all else. From a young age, respect and admiration of the town elders was earned only by demonstrating these key values in everything their villagers did.

A young and noble man named Ethos became particularly interested in the world of technology and the potential it held for empowering individuals and communities. Ethos had to be cautious throughout his venture, as the development of new ideas can be dangerous if fallen into the wrong hands. Emperor Pathos was a right and just leader in the eyes of his people, but would stop at nothing to claim Ethos work as his own. 

Legends claimed that Emperor Pathos was not everything his followers believed him to be, and that his rise to power was through theft and deception. A technology capable of changing the traditional ways of the village needed to be handled in secret, until a plan could be made to use this power for good. Ethos began to develop Calileo in a small work shed by his house in the mountains. He was creating a decentralized social media platform by scratch. One that was named in honour of his homeland.

Ethos threw himself into his work with vigour. He quickly became an expert in the field, and his knowledge and skills proved invaluable to the success of Calileo. Rumours of his creation began to spread ever so slowly, firstly in within his family, and eventually to a few of the grounds workers in the kingdom. It was only a matter of time until word of his progress would reach the ears of the Emperor, who would surely find a way to get involved. Disruptive technologies may viewed upon as witchcraft in Calileo, or even worse, an attempt to overthrow the way of life of the Emperor. 

What started as an idea in Ethos’ imagination had become a reality, somewhere in the beautiful mountains of Calileo. As his platform grew in popularity, Ethos had no choice but to reveal himself as the creator of the new technology. He became the go-to person for users who needed help or guidance. He took pride in his role as a leader of the decentralized revolution, and he worked tirelessly to ensure that every user had the tools and resources they needed to succeed. He had almost completely forgotten about the implications of such an act, and was soon met with a knock on his cabin door from none other than the Emperor’s guards. 

Ethos was forced across a drawbridge and into the castle gates, his hands bloodied by shackles. He was placed before Emperor Pathos to explain the situation at hand. Trembling with fear, the courageous man spoke confidently and valiantly, stating that his technology could change the village of Calileo for the better, and that he and the Emperor could work together to ensure that Calileo grew to unimaginable heights. After a decisive shake of his head, Emperor Pathos showed his true colours by throwing Ethos into the darkest depths of prison and claiming sole possession of the platform in its entirety. No one dared fight against this sudden change, seeing the suffering of Ethos as an example of those who meddle with the Emperor’s rule.

Weeks passed before the starving and dirtied Ethos was called into a private meeting with the Council of Calileo. As his invention grew to substantial heights, the Emperor realized he did not have the knowledge to manage such a creation, and needed Ethos’ expertise after all. To his surprise, every man, woman and child in the village had adopted Calileo to be used for productivity in their daily lives. Ethos was promised luxurious goods and bountiful meals for his necessary assistance. 

Over time, Ethos became known as a master creator, a person who excelled at using Calileo to create and share high-quality content to all of the townsfolk. His expertise and passion for excellence inspired others to follow in his footsteps, and Calileo became a hub of creativity and innovation.

As Ethos helped more and more users become master creators, he became increasingly convinced of the importance of ownership and sovereignty. He believed that every person should have complete control over their own content, and he worked tirelessly to ensure that Calileo upheld this principle.

Ethos’s dedication to integrity and sovereignty helped to make Calileo a shining example of what is possible when people are empowered to create and share their ideas with the world.

Now it’s your chance to stand on the shoulders of giants that have gone before. Ethos is but a memory, but the responsibility to carry on his legacy and meet emerging challenges with courage and bravery is yours. We are guardians of Calileo and all it represents. Let’s build the future of social media together.

Year in Review #2022.

Dens Akoka · Dec 31, 2022 · 5min read

For Calileo, 2022 has been a remarkable year of construction, building from the ground, and solving problems for cryptocurrency users. This is achieved through the adoption and onboarding of non-web3 users by introducing them to the power of decentralisation.

Challenges, passion, purpose, and support are the words that would perfectly describe our year 2022. We overcome these challenges as a team, driven by purpose and the passion we ignite, like a flame. But nothing would’ve been possible without the support of our community. We build what we are passionate about, but you are the true heroes.

Q1 2022 – A new dawn for social platforms

The world is impacted by centralisation issues, where shareholders on current social platforms will censor anything that goes against their views, and what they get paid for by governments and other private entities. These worrying issues were addressed on Twitter by Elon Musk, later planning to buy the social platform to tackle the freedom of speech problems. One major barrier was still in place and couldn’t be removed though; Twitter wasn’t built on a blockchain, thus, isn’t decentralised. Only a login method utilising a non-custodial wallet would allow such a connection in the web3 social world. Where true ownership, freedom of speech, and lucrative content creation are only possible.

Q2 2022 – New foundations for the world

I was well aware of current issues on social media platforms, and I was looking for a decentralised substitute such as Steemit and Minds.com. The main problem was that they wouldn’t keep me engaged to create on their platform and connect with others. Their UX wasn’t performing well enough for already marketed products to millions of users. So, what if there was a decentralised social platform that could offer more in terms of UX, provide tools for content creators, and take advantage of new blockchain technology?

On June 15th, I proposed Calileo to the public, A Highly Scalable Decentralised Social Network Built On The Elrond Blockchain, under the form of a whitepaper, litepaper, and onepager. Building such foundations for the world of tomorrow helped me to gain interest from some of the best talents on MultiversX to help me build Calileo. We also successfully unlocked our first funds, wowing grants in the UK with such a project with clear structure and roadmap. This confirmed the viability of the Calileo project.

Q3 2022 – Development and marketing

We have decided from the beginning that we will always build alongside our community. They will have their word on the development of Calileo, as holders of our NFT collection called Ethos.

This quarter was focused on developing the project, creating the first prototype with our UX/UI partners, Jujotte. Our community of OGs were really excited about this, and they loved our first version of the prototype, already envisioning a product that would unify the cryptocurrency market to onboard non-web3 users. A user-friendly tool built on the web3, for everyone to enjoy.

We simultaneously developed our team, igniting our product but also our community, that grew from a hundred to thousands in a few months. This piqued the interest of many other entities on MultiversX, who wished to form a partnership by joining the platform that will unify us all in onboarding the next billion. We secured 10+ partnerships and are still discussing with others, notably those from the Metabonding program of MultiversX.

We designed our collection called Ethos during this time. Ethos (ethics) are essential to the sustainability of an organisation like Calileo. Its neutrality must remain, but its values have to be stated and understood by our community. Ethos NFT stands for what Calileo is and what our ethics are. We are building a masterpiece, as Michaelangelo did with its David, but with a touch of inclusivity, history, and pop culture. Showing off our values and what our future users can expect from Calileo, an inclusive and cohesive decentralised social platform, for the world to use.

Q4 2022 – Ethos Kickoff & MVP build

Our Ethos NFT collection went live thanks to Combased with a minter they provided for our private sale. We were successfully funded by our core community to develop what Calileo will be as a minimum viable product. Our sale has also helped us to raise money for Victor in the Together4Victor initiative.

We completed our second prototype during the last quarter of 2022. Our version 2.0 display exactly what we are building and planning on releasing in 2023 for our Ethos holders of a Moon and/or Diamond memberships and our partners. We secured more partnerships in this quarter, focusing on onboarding main MultiversX actors during our Alpha and Beta release.

Our Ethos NFT enjoyed a highly successful private sale, with the public sale live on Frame It and is still ongoing here.

What 2023 holds for Calileo

The new year will give and excite our community with many new releases. Firstly, our Alpha (MVP) version, for our Moon and Diamond Ethos holders and partners will be released. Then, our $CAL token seed and private sales open to our investors. We will also release a proper DAO for our Ethos holders to vote on strategic decisions alongside the team.

Later on, Calileo will become public for everyone that wishes to join the full power of web3 content creation. It will come with brand new features and possibilities, such as the integration of automatic earnings in $CAL through the platform. Rewards boost and staking for Ethos holders will also become options.

We will then unleash the power of Calileo Moon, a Twitter Blue like premium subscription to unlock the full potential of the web3 on Calileo, with improved customisation and tools for content creators and brands. We will also introduce boosted contents (ads) and many more features throughout time, with a competitive UX similar to popular web2 platforms which updating will be a high priority.

We’d like to thank our community for such an amazing year. It has revealed difficult challenges but also many rewarding moments. Twenty twenty-two was enriching. Twenty twenty-three, we make history.

6 Great Reasons to Mint an Ethos NFT.

Dens Akoka · Dec 13, 2022 · 4min read

The Ethos NFT Collection is going to public sale on Tuesday the 20th of December, on Frame It.

We minted out the 3 rounds of our private sale in a matter of hours and can’t wait to give more people the opportunity to become part of this revolutionary project and great community.

There are many great reasons to mint an Ethos NFT, some of these are below.

Early access to Calileo.

By owning an Ethos NFT, you will get early access to the Calileo platform in 2023.

Those with higher membership tiers will get earlier access but all Ethos holders will have early access to the beta version of the platform before it is released to the public.

We can’t wait until our community get the opportunity to test the platform.

Check out the V2 Prototype here for a preview of what we are developing.

Participate in our $CAL token private sales.

By owning an Ethos NFT, you also get early access to our $CAL token sales.

The $CAL token is the lifeblood of our platform and it’s the growth engine of Calileo that incentivises creation and engagement on the platform.

By owning an Ethos NFT, you will have access to the private rounds of our $CAL token sale.

Moon and Diamond memberships will be able to participate in the initial, seed round of the $CAL sale. Obsidian, Ruby and Jade membership holders will be able to participate in the private round.

Once the platform goes live, all Ethos NFT holders will be able to stake their NFTs on the platform to earn $CAL.

Support our mission of creating a decentralised and democratised future.

The funds raised by the Ethos NFT sale will go towards the development of the platform.

If you care about the principles of free speech, privacy and the democratisation of social media, you should care about the development of Calileo.

We are continuously making significant progress towards our vision, but obviously, with greater funding we have the opportunity to move the project along with greater impetus and speed.

5% of each NFT sale also goes to supporting Victor, the little boy from Romania who has captured the hearts of the MultiversX community in his fight against SMA.

The Calileo Project and Community uniting to build a better future together.

You can shape the future of Calileo through our DAO.

The Calileo platform will be governed by its DAO. The DAO will be made up of Ethos NFT holders who will have the right to vote on proposals that will shape the future of the platform.

Moon Memberships will have greater influence as their voting power will be multiplied by 1.5x but all Ethos holders can influence the direction of Calileo by submitting and voting on proposals that are executed through smart contracts to ensure trustlessness and transparency.

It makes a great PFP.

You can’t deny the art of the Ethos NFT collection, inspired by artistic and philosophical influences of the past, is straight fire.

The artistic direction represents Calileo’s desire to stand on the shoulders of past giants, to build a better future.

There are also contemporary influences such as the wireless earphones, smartphone and pride tee traits amongst other hints to modernisation.

We were also artistically inspired by some of our partners including MaiarPunks and Giants, as well as MultiversX themselves and this is reflected in the art of the Ethos NFT collection.

We hope to see many more accounts rocking Calileo PFPs after the public mint.

$CAL Staking and Rewards

Holders of Ethos NFTs will receive staking rewards and contribution boosts paid in our native token, $CAL.

The higher your membership tier, the more $CAL rewards you will receive through both staking your Ethos NFT or your content contribution to Calileo.

As mentioned above, the $CAL token is the lifeblood of Calileo and incentivises creation and engagement on the platform through monetization.

Owning an (or multiple) Ethos equals a greater opportunity to earn $CAL.

AMA — Ethos / Calileo #2

Dens Akoka · Nov 21, 2022 · 6min read

Hi Calileos! First, we wanted to thank our community for this incredible support! We’ve reached many Elrond community members lately, and we know that you love the Calileo project and our Ethos NFT designs. It’s amazing!

As our third mint is incoming (November 22nd, 19 UTC) we wanted to ensure that our community is aware of everything about the mint, Ethos NFTs & Calileo in general. This written format will allow us to share it with newcomers!

Mint Recap

As you know, we sold out our first two batches. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity you give us to build the greatest decentralized social platform. Thank you for your incredible support.

Our 3rd private mint will begin tomorrow at 19 UTC. We will offer 500 Ethos to our Moonlisted at 0.6 EGLD, which will be the last time you will be able to mint at this price. There will be no maximum limits per wallet. If you are a whale, you can mint all your Ethos in a single transaction 👀

The mint will take place on our website: mint.calileo.co (Please make sure to connect your wallet a few minutes before the mint, to check if you are correctly Moonlisted).

AMA Ethos NFT

What are the real benefits of holding a common NFT?

Holding a common NFT is a starting point to participate in our DAO for strategic decisions made for the future of Calileo, making sure that you are involved in deciding what is better for your investment. You will have a voice. Plus it will allow you to boost your rewards in $CAL on the social platform and unlock the doors to participate in the $CAL private sale. You will eventually be able to stake your Ethos on the platform to earn even more rewards. 

Bear in mind that holding several common Ethos can help you stake up your rewards boost. This means that if you hold 20 common Ethos, there would be some equivalence to Moon Ethos in terms of rewards boost. Common Ethos are more valuable than you think, not to mention we are playing with the idea of a program capable of massively increasing the long term value of Standard Ethos.

Could you explain the rarity levels of the EthosNFTs and the total supply per level?

The Ethos are ranked according to their traits’ rarities. Meaning that a Moon Membership doesn’t necessarily appear in the ranks 1 to 100. However, if we’re talking about Membership tiers, there are 100 Moons, 200 Diamonds, 400 Obsidians, 800 Rubies, and 1,600 Jades.

Describe to us, what is your creative process? How would you describe Ethos NFT's art style?

Drawing the Ethos collection came from the sculpture of the David statue of Michelangelo. As some may know, this sculpture is a masterpiece of the Renaissance symbolizing liberty, perfection, and freedom. The art style combines ancient and modern technology, with hints of unique and distinctive traits that cannot be found on any other NFT collection. An unseen combination of bright, dark, and personal taste.

​​“When all was finished, it cannot be denied that this work has carried off the palm from all other statues, modern or ancient, Greek or Latin; no other artwork is equal to it in any respect, with such just proportion, beauty and excellence did Michelangelo finish it”.

At Calileo, we simply want to symbolize the effort in building a state-of-the-art social platform, mixed with fun and pop-culture-influenced attributes to exemplify the good times you finally have on a decentralized blockchain-based social network.

What utility will you give to your NFTs next?

We are so far exclusively focusing on the current utilities that are still yet to be introduced in practice. In the future, we are discussing more utilities to introduce to Ethos NFT holders. This would be surely communicated to the community.

Will there be 3D NFTs ready for the multiverse?

There aren’t any 3D NFTs in the plan for now. However, we like the idea of recreating unique Ethos that match the current 2D ones on the market. We aren’t close to it, but we will address the idea after the public sales. 

AMA Calileo social platform

Is any plan foreseen in order to prevent deep fakes?

Liveness detection is crucial to prevent deep fakes. Essentially, liveness detection ensures that an online user is a real person. It uses various technologies to differentiate between genuine humans and spoof artifacts. Without liveness detection, a criminal would be able to successfully spoof a system with presented fake photographs, videos, or masks.

We will work in the future on developing our own liveness detection, once the platform is more likely to have deep fakes present.

Will you publish the recommendation algorithms that you will use like open source?

We plan to be open source as soon as Calileo is on the market and running.

What is your 2023 roadmap?

Our 2023 roadmap involves carrying out our promises and developing the Calileo social platform, including all the features we have already planned to release. We expect Ethos to become one of the most valuable NFT projects on MultiversX based on our plans. We will keep growing the network of content creators and users. You can find our detailed roadmap here.

What is your marketing strategy?

Our marketing strategy is community-led and education-led. This means we will soon be starting our journey to educate the population about data ownership on social platforms, and other components that make decentralized social networks viable today. This will automatically lead to an all encompassing growth strategy regarding the Calileo social platform, utilizing a cross-channel content strategy to capture a larger audience throughout MultiversX and beyond. 

We are keen to acquire and spread awareness about Calileo; But retaining and cultivating our current community is our primary focus. This is when our strategy of gathering and growing together begins. We are planning to create key events and incentives for our community to stay entertained and spend valuable time with each other.

Are any partnerships planned in the near future?

We have already secured partnerships with key builders in the ecosystem, most recently Omniscient Tools. We are discussing partnerships with other major players on MultiversX, as well as content creators beyond the space. Everything we are planning is for a specific reason, and we will keep generating interest for anyone who wants to bring value to Calileo.

Now that Elrond's vision is focused on Multiverse, what place does Calileo fit in? Did your objectives change since you started the project?

We are closely following this newly drawn path by the MultiversX (Elrond) team. We are confident that any leap taken in the ecosystem won’t be difficult for our team to catch up to. Whatever will happen with the Multiverse, we will be ready. The Calileo platform has huge ambitions, and one of them would perfectly work and perhaps connect with most of the features developed by the MultiversX team.

Our objectives haven’t changed. We are still driven by change and expanding every day. The adoption of blockchain-based social features is our main objective.

How will you go about making yourself known to the general public?

Calileo’s primary focus is to help the MultiversX ecosystem in its vision of “Onboarding the next billion”. It starts with building a platform around its community with an important investment in user experience, in alignment with MultiversX.

The Calileo social platform would solve issues on other chains, thanks to a better user experience to onboard non-web3 users. Globally, we would allow users to practise their freedom of speech and their data ownership. This would ultimately bring more adoption to the MultiversX space with an important potential.

What is the most prominent strong point Calileo has compared to its competitors? What are the weak points?

Calileo strives for top-notch user experience in a high-tech ecosystem. Allowing anyone that doesn’t get the “technical stuff” to be able to use blockchain-based tools simply. We are still early and developing the platform. We will soon turn this dream into a reality and validate all our points. A weak point would be the initial difficulty of moving long term users of Discord, Telegram and Twitter to a new social platform. 

How will Calileo gather the necessary audience for any social network to thrive? Since the NFTs are limited, what will be the benefits for new users to join if they don't have any NFTs?

Our approach involves working with builders and brands in the MultiversX ecosystem. We will allow them to onboard their communities on Calileo as soon as the Beta is released. It will unlock the potential of the platform to enable communities and brands to connect together. Furthermore, we will work with content creators with a greater reach to increase our brand awareness and platform growth.

You will be able to see the benefits of joining Calileo regardless of if you hold Ethos or not. True freedom of speech, data ownership, web3 tools that enable brands and content creators to create deep connections with their audience; an all-in-one platform to both allow community retention and acquisition, and much more…

Holding Ethos NFTs enable our early believers to supercharge their wallet in perks and boosts around the Calileo ecosystem. It’s a bonus for our investors to gain deeper advantages of what Calileo has to offer.

When launch?

The Calileo social platform will officially launch in 2023, Q1.

If you haven’t read our previous AMA and would like to get more answers, you can find them here.

The team will keep working hard on the social platform after the mint this Tuesday to deliver more and more. We are planning to release more news about future incoming sales… Stay tuned, and patiently wait for the Calileo team to deliver 🛠️

As our private mint is incoming (date TBD) we wanted to ensure that our community is aware of everything about the mint, Ethos NFTs & Calileo in general. This written format will allow us to share it with newcomers!

Mint recap

Our 1st Private Mint will begin soon and will be split into 3 batches. The first batch will happen on day 1 at 19PM UTC (500 supply), the second one on day 3 at 19PM UTC (500 supply), and the third one on day 5 at 19PM UTC (500 supply). There will be a maximum of 10 mints per wallet for the first two batches, and no maximum for the last one.

AMA Ethos NFT

What is the utility of the Ethos NFT? How do we benefit from holding one?

Your Ethos NFT is the gateway for our early believers and investors to unlock the full potential of Calileo and build your social wealth with boosted rewards before global adoption. On top of boosted rewards, which vary depending on the membership trait your Ethos has, you could get exclusive access to use Calileo before the public and invest in our $CAL token at its lowest price. Ultimately, more perks will arise throughout the Calileo journey in the future such as staking pools and our Calileo Moon (Premium Subscription like Twitter Blue) for free.

What will Ethos NFT project mean in another 5 or 10 Years? Given the market conditions, what are the team's UNIQUE future plans to maintain the growth trend of the floor price of the NFT?
Ethos NFTs are an opportunity for any investor on Elrond to take part in an early project that understands the future landscape of social networks; supercharged by web3. Calileo is built with sustainability at its forefront, utilizing a relatively unexplored web3 trend for social platforms. Your Ethos will carry the same utilities in 5 or 10 years. We will continuously develop our plans to bring more features and solutions to our ecosystem using Ethos. All of this will require our community.
What are the security put in place to ensure that investors investment are safe and they get value for their investment?

Investing early in a project employs knowing that there is a higher risk. However, we are dedicated and passionate about the future of social networks and are backed up by multiple trusted personalities in the Elrond ecosystem. People believe in our vision of a better future on social media, highlighted by safety and security. Your Ethos will be protected by the full force of the Elrond network

Financially speaking, how much does it matter that the NFTs are SO for the project to have continuity and be completed in good conditions? Or how much (%) of the collection do you have to sell to break even?

Around 25% of the NFT sales will be utilised for paying important resources. Our team, suppliers, and partners. Which will be essential to move forward until our Beta release in Q1 2023. The rest will be utilised to accelerate the process through better development, marketing and resources in general, where 5% will also go towards a charity called SuperVictor.

If we mint an NFT with a Jade Membership, we have a 3-months Calileo Moon... What does it mean exactly? What's the true meaning of Calileo Moon, and what happens at the end of this period?

People that use social media don’t have a platform that builds power features that meet their needs. Well, that’s about to change. Our team took has made tremendous research this past year to get to the heart of social network users’ expectations. Calileo is developing and iterating upon other solutions and ideas that will give the people who will use Calileo the most they are looking for: access to exclusive features and perks that will take their experience on Calileo to the next level on the web3. And for those wondering, yes, a free Calileo is a top priority for our team. This subscription offering is simply meant to add enhanced and complementary features to the builders, creators, and professionals who want it.

We know, that ‘Moon’ is the marketing buzzword used by multiple cryptocurrency ventures over 2021. But it has a meaning behind the Calileo project. Carrying the misspelt name of Galileo Galilei, the first man on Earth who saw the Moon from a different angle. His findings would totally overturn an ancient model of the universe, like Calileo. In the future development of Calileo, we will be rolling out our first iteration of Calileo Moon in the key areas where Calileo will be present. Our hope with this model is to gain a deeper understanding of what will make our creators’ and builders’ experiences more customised, more expressive, and generally speaking more to them.

Calileo Moon will be a Twitter-Blue-like premium subscription unlocking the platform’s full potential. It will be introduced in 2023 Q2 and holders of Ethos NFT may have it for free, depending on the rarity. of their Membership Trait. So for instance, if you mint a Jade Membership, you will have Calileo Moon for free for 3 months as soon as we have introduced it to the Calileo platform. Then, after these 3 months, you will loolosesunlesse Calileo Moon unles you start paying for it.

What are your plans for Ethos NFTs after the mint takes place?

The Ethos NFT upcoming mint will be the first batch among others. Our primary focus areas after this first sale will be to organise the future mints, connect with our community holding their Ethos, keep sharing our values and plans with the Elrond ecosystem, and keep building the Calileo MVP.

What is your way to ensure that those minted lower-rank NFTs will keep their floor price higher than the mint price at the secondary market? It is hard to achieve especially for those projects with huge supply.

Our primary method of maintaining value is to keep building over the long term. Investors decide value based off a combination of many factors such as art quality, utility, community, and overall optics. As mentioned before, rushing the process is rarely a viable solution. We want our timing to have a positive effect on our holders’ emotions and therefore the floor price. Our team is already building and will keep developing until the foreseeable future. Always leaving our investors with news to ponder. We strongly believe the community will appreciate Ethos as soon as it hits the market.

On the other hand, we believe that selling out the Ethos collection in several mints will maintain excitement amongst the Elrond community and keep the floor at a respectable value.

How will having an Ethos NFT be an advantage for the rest of the project?

Ethos is a direct representation of the quality of work Calileo will be putting into our products. When people think of Calileo and our platform, they will associate a high quality NFT that the community loves. Ethos brand increases attention and investment into Calileo, providing advantages to both the company and the user through utility and increased value potential.

Which one will be the rarest trait in your collection?

Our rarest trait in the Ethos NFT collection will be the Gold Body. There will only be 1 out of 10,000 (0.01%).

Can you please elaborate more about the staking rewards pools? What kind of rewards? How often?

The staking won’t be available before the Calileo Beta. More information will be communicated closer to the time of release.

AMA Calileo social platform

What makes Calileo different from Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?

Social media has proven to be an incredible opportunity for businesses and creators to advertise their work, collaborate, and change the world together. They benefit from unlimited technology provided by social platforms. The problem is, that these platforms have been given value thanks to the people creating outstanding content, defying all creativity. The content creators, the users, don’t receive anything back from the technology provider, Instagram, or TikTok.

Calileo is here to change the social media industry. With the help of Web3 technologies and the Elrond/Maiar ecosystem, the new social network will reshape what has been lost during what was supposed to be the journey to empower the people online and facilitate fun digital interactions.

We won’t be totally different in terms of UX and UI. Although we will supercharge Calileo with web3 features that will benefit all users.

How will be managed the moderation of the publications?

You will be able to signal content and it will be voted on by a randomly selected jury of 12 people for it to stay on the Calileo platform or not. The majority of the vote wins.

Calileo will always seek a unanimous verdict first. This is a verdict on which all jurors agree, so either guilty or not guilty. In the early stages when the jury is considering its verdict, Calileo cannot accept a majority verdict. If the jury is completely stuck, a majority decision may be accepted. The timing of this will vary from case to case. In general, the most serious reported content will have a longer wait.

If Calileo decides to allow a majority verdict, it will tell the jury that they should strive to reach a verdict with which they agree. If they cannot, Calileo will tell them that a majority verdict will be accepted. In a 12-person jury, no more than two jurors may disagree. When there are 10 or 11 members on a jury, only one person can disagree. However, if there are 9 jurors, the verdict must be unanimous. If the verdict is ‘not guilty’, the defendant is free to let his or her post stand (if there are no other outstanding issues).

And yes, the jury will get a reward in $CAL for their participation.

Are you planning to launch some marketing campaigns/collabs to onboard more people from other chains? This could help Elrond's vision of "Onboarding the next billion". Growing the ecosystem helps everyone!

Calileo’s primary focus is to help the Elrond ecosystem in its vision of “Onboarding the next billion”. It starts with building a platform around its community with an important investment in user experience, in alignment with Elrond.

The Calileo social platform would solve issues on other chains, thanks to a better user experience to onboard non-web3 users, but also globally, allowing users to get back their freedom of speech and their data ownership. This would ultimately bring more adoption to the Elrond space with an important potential.

How do you plan to "fight" against bots? If we compare it with Twitter, many accounts are bots... What can you do against that?

Calileo will only allow Maiar users to connect to the platform. Reducing the number of bots considerably. Improving our user experience.

Could Calileo be the bridge between web2 and web3, in order to allow a passage to those who have no knowledge of the blockchain in a simpler way and closer to what they know in web2 (classic social network)?

Yes – bridging the gap between web2 and web3 is an important step for mass adoption. This is why it remains important to keep the current UX while bringing brand-new features thanks to blockchain technology.

How will Calileo function on our preferences for different posts? And how will information be filtered on each post on the platform? Will it be as much as twitter but only for the Maiar People? (Only for the community)

Users will decide on their preferences for different posts. You will be able to build your own feeds with a wide range of ‘feed settings’. E.g., topics, hashtags, people, location, languages, etc.

Will the social platform have a video conference possible?

Yes, but that feature won’t be available on the platform before 2023.

Would you have a guide about the $CAL utility?​

Calileo grants access to the usage of its network through intrinsic utility tokens called Calileos, in short CALs. All rewards for various contributions to the network will be paid in CALs. Creating content, curating content, improving the opensource code, supporting creators and users, having an impact on others in the platform, and other sorts of contributions will be rewarded in CALs.

You can have a look at our whitepaper, litepaper, or onepager if you would like to find out more about $CAL utility.

Will the app be (ad) free for content consumers?

The platform will feature boosted content for genuine creators and brands (free of charge for verified charities).

Any Itheum integration in the pipeline?

The data ownership enabler in the metaverse could help Calileo in its journey to allow users to own their 21 data produced in the platform and decide to do whatever they want with it. This is in the pipeline. It has to be.

Is the created content stored as NFT?

Calileo will be fully decentralised using the IPFS. The InterPlanetary File System. Which is a peer-to-peer filesharing system. It’s that way that you decentralise a platform. Your created content get therefore tokenised as NFTs.

Would there be bug bounties or airdrops?

Yes there will be in the future. But not before 2023.

The team will keep working hard on the social platform after the mint this Thursday to deliver more and more. We are planning to release more news about future incoming sales… Stay tuned, and patiently wait for the Calileo team to deliver 🛠️

A Brief Summary of the Story of ETHOS

Dens Akoka · Sept 29, 2022 · 6min read

Elrond’s NFT space has been alive and well for over a year at the time of writing. Investors have been exposed to almost every scam or scandal imaginable at this point, leading to a strong and careful decision making process. Each failure in the space has allowed Elrond NFT investors over time to be less naive and more cautious with their purchases. An enormous factor in this decision making process is trust. We want Calileo to be a platform that users can trust fully and independently. The ETHOS collection made by Calileo is a direct representation of the trustworthiness that Calileo attempts to portray through all of its operations. We are in absolutely no position to be engaging in any form of malicious behaviour. The values embedded within Calileo go hand in hand with ETHOS. An NFT project of this scale will support Calileo whilst opening up our community to a completely new style of NFT. 

Elrond investors can no longer be tricked or taken advantage of like in some of the earlier days. We have gained valuable market knowledge which can distinguish legitimate projects from ones looking to make quick profits. Building Calileo is an expensive and ambitious venture, meaning funds are necessary to pay the design teams and developers, while building a strong foundation for the treasury.  The initial idea of raising money through a correlated NFT project is a solid idea, but it comes with its fair share of moral dilemmas.

In the grand scheme of things, there are two different approaches that Calileo could take. The first approach (and the less moral of the two), is to rush out a decent NFT with highly aggressive marketing. This means paying influencers and promoters to garner as much hype as possible to maximize immediate sales profit. The NFT can be subpar, rushed, uninteresting, but the marketing tactics and association with Calileo would allow for some form of success, likely through taking advantage of investors. The utility would still exist, but there would be no true attachment to the art of such an NFT. Our team could not stomach an approach in this manner, instead deciding to take the longer route. A specific quote comes to mind in the process of dealing with such a dilemma: 

“If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures. If you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures” – Musonious Rufus.

The team at Calileo decided, much like Elrond itself, it is most important to build a product that people will love, and let them explore it on their own. The ETHOS collection is one that has required hundreds of man hours of time and dedication, and we believe seasoned NFT investors will be able to appreciate this quality as soon as eyes are laid upon the collection. 

The most successful project on Elrond to date, Elrond Apes, had no product to back their design, only a community of believers. One thorough examination of traits such as the Samurai Jacket highlight the extreme attention to detail and hours of effort put into accomplishing such a perfect design. Their brand is built through beauty and elegance, not utility and hype. This goes to show the importance of a collection that takes their art seriously, with traits tailored to perfection. 

The success of Elrond Apes is inspiring because it shows what is possible through hard work and attention to detail. Even though the Calileo Social Platform will leverage our ETHOS collection, we wanted to combine this utility with the kind of effort required to build a collection that investors can truly appreciate. We want people to spend time observing the details and the easter eggs. We want something people will be proud of to don as their profile picture. An achievement such as this, in a saturated space, means only one thing: no shortcuts. If we want respect through ETHOS, it must be earned. 

The collection is so unique in countless senses. There are many traits that have never been seen before on Elrond. There is a hint of humour that has never been seen on Elrond. We want to release a project that has at least one trait that can resonate with anybody minting. 

The team at Calileo understands how sharply momentum can build. The ball is rolling but it is ultimately up to the investors to decide whether or not they love the art. In addition to the crucial list of utilities highlighted in other postings, we needed ETHOS to bring back exceptional art to the Elrond NFT space. The kind of art that one recognizes as luxurious; art which must have taken months to complete in its entirety. 

ETHOS is Calileo’s baby. We know how important an NFT project is when representing and supporting a company. To choose a base model, we needed to think of a character which could portray confidence, trust, and creativity. Instead of developing a new character from scratch, we believed the right choice would be a historical object instead. There existed ideas of a mythical creature or an alien, but David was the favourite choice of the team. Recreating Michelangelo’s David was not the easier option, but the statue itself carries centuries of emotions and meaning to millions of people. Creating a character from scratch makes their personality difficult to trust, whereas David has stood the test of time as a symbol of perfection and elegance. 

When making decisions for traits, it is of utmost importance to take community desires into perspective. If we ask ourselves what is lacking from the Elrond NFT ecosystem at the moment, the most obvious answers are: A humorous NFT, never before seen traits, and traits that resonate with people. We want to mix five different categories of traits: Funny, Meaningful, Unique, Classics and Memberships. With 180 total traits, this complex mixture would not be a problem. We want each and every David to have its own personality. It is abundantly clear that our community loves controversial, surprising and detailed traits. When we spend our precious $EGLD on an NFT, we are going to take the time necessary to study every single brush stroke. This is why every trait has been reviewed and audited by a minimum of 5 sets of eyes, as not to miss any details. In the process, the design team also implemented fixes and suggestions by multiple established NFT artists, in an effort to produce the highest quality hand-drawn collection on Elrond. 

In conclusion, the story of ETHOS is one that combines careful thought with hard execution. We can either present the community with a jpeg file, or a complex arrangement of pixels with a real personality. One is much harder to create than the other. Your David represents what you believe in, what you think is clever, and what you want to portray as a creator of Calileo. There is a trait for everyone, and more importantly, there is David for everyone.
