Roadmap

The information in this Roadmap is subject to change or update in the future.

Chapter I. Planting Seeds & Removing Weeds 🌱

Q2 2022
We are pleased to announce the launch of our website and Discord on Earth's Day 🌍 The roadmap and features have been properly addressed and structured. In its fight against climate change, Saplings partners with NGOs and gives back 50% of sales to them. Discover the Saplings’s Universe, a nostalgic mash-up of the team's favorite childhood games: Animal Crossing, Pokémon, and Tamagotchi. This immersive experience will be your new profile picture, your life-long companion, and a long-term mini-game with benefits.

Chapter II. Fighting Deforestation & Saving Trees 🌳

Q3 2022
On a mission to spread awareness and educate people on the climate crisis—we are here to create a lovely, regen(erative) community and promote eco-friendly lifestyle.
We will bring you the latest climate change news in an engaging way by challenging you to collect XP and level up through our new innovative battle-pass system. Each time you level up, you’ll unlock limited-edition accessories for your Saplings, roles, Whitelist spots, airdrops and random loot boxes.

Chapter III. Discovering Our Beautiful Nature 🌿

Q3 2022
Each Saplings will be randomly generated from a mix of over 100 traits, on-the-fly, when minted. 100% crafted and hand-painted by our team of 3D Designers and Concept Artists (Textures, 3D Accessories, Backgrounds, Expressions and Poses). There are over 20 millions potential combinations and each one is guaranteed to be unlike any other in existence.
Introducing a pure innovation in the NFT Space—one of the first Interactive and Dynamic NFT out there. Forget everything you know about NFTs, because Saplings will be a major change from the norm. Your new NFT won’t be static; your NFT won’t be an image (you will still be able to use it as a PFP, don’t worry). Saplings will introduce a fully immersive 3D experience where you can interact with your NFT in real time. This one will evolve over time—any updates or new features added will reflect directly into your NFT).
Mini-updates/features example: Imagine if we want to give you a Christmas hat on Christmas day. In a matter of seconds, everyone would be able to claim their hat and add it to their Saplings Character.
To celebrate the occasion, we will hold a beta-presale featuring the first 50-100 NFTs at 50% off. Only our most committed members will have access to this opportunity—this will help us get feedback and improve the overall experience for the real minting phase.

Chapter IV: Absorbing Sunlight & Watering Plants 🌞

Q1 2023
It's time for saplings to see the light of day! *Official Launch* Right after the minting phase, we will launch our second innovation in the NFT space: the “Photo-Synthesis” studio. A place where you can take a picture of your NFT in a unique way. You'll be able to take pictures of your Sapling from any angle and with any background, accessories, and expression you choose. In a few clicks, you can change the photo of your NFT and update it across all marketplaces and social media. It’s like Photoshop for NFTs!
We have begun sending the percentage of the donations that was pledged to our NGOs.

Chapter V: Taking Care Of The Garden 🪴

Q1 2023
Introducing the Garden, our 3rd innovation, a place that you can decorate with furnitures that you earn by engaging in community activities (Events, airdrop, giveaways, quests & loot boxes system…) Inspired by Animal Crossing, you will be able to customize your Garden, rotate and place furnitures and view them live when visiting your NFT online. Customize it however you want; those furnishings will be visible when you will take a new PFP of your Saplings.
​

Chapter VI: Giving Back Nature The Rights it Deserves 🍎

Q2 2023
We will Introduce “The Stage”—our mission is to spread awareness and educate people about the climate crisis. We know that a lot of our community members can have a really strong story to tell—we want to give them a voice, emphasize their story, and help them share what they have to say by leveraging all of our social media activity.
We’ll organize a series of AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions with our NGO partners to highlight the positive impacts that our donations will have.
We’ll also be holding trash pickup and different events all around the world, allowing us to and learn about each other as we help clean up and debate over the environmental issues.

Holders Benefits Not Mentioned So Far

Alongside all the milestones listed below, we want to give the most out of this NFT. We will try to push the boundaries of the possibilities in terms of collaboration and main-stream adoptions—we want to give you long term benefits like: private ticket access to conference, meetups on the climate crisis and environmental issues. We want to partner with cities and places where we can promote sustainability by offering discounts on subway tickets and bike rental. Finally, we will try to help local communities in needs through our different NGOs partners by leveraging our community—YOU will be part of this huge social movement 💚

We Care For Our Whole Community Including Non-Holders

  • Non-holders will still be able to participate in upcoming community events
  • Education will remain accessible to everyone
  • Non-holders will have ways to still earn an NFT with their commitment and engagement
​
Note that all the "Minted" milestones are subject to a DAO consolidation and holders of a Saplings NFT will have a chance to receive shares on the sales. We want to make this decision properly, one thing at a time. We are focused on the collection itself at the moment. Percentage? How is this share divided? How will it be distributed? All those questions will be answered later on.
