Benefits of STARS Tokens

Welcome everyone to Mogul’s ecosystem.  We are the NFT marketplace platform for the movie industry.  Over the years Mogul has cultivated its team and technology to give you the best experience.  Each day Mogul develops exciting products infused with a strong community spirit.

With so many exciting products from film and entertainment entering Mogul’s marketplace, new fans and collectors are joining our ecosystem daily.  Mogul creates processes to interact with and reward its community.  This also includes working with its cross-community partners to provide utility in the form of games, tokens and other rewards.   

The STARS token is our native cryptocurrency that opens the world of Film3 wide open.   It’s used for staking, voting, governance and ownership.  STARS allows users to take part in our NFT drops, watch movies and fashion shows in our Mogieland metaverse, and get involved in the community.  Fans and collectors who wish to buy NFTs on the Mogul platform,  or participate in the P2E games and land sales in Mogieland, will need STARS to do so. 

Buying NFTs with STARS rewards buyers with discounts and lower gas rates.  Occasionally, drops and other sales can be purchased with both STARS and ETH.  In such cases, products bought with STARS will receive a significant discount on their purchase as compared to using ETH.  This is our way of saying thank you for supporting the utility and benefits of our native cryptocurrency.

Aside from staking STARS in film projects, which we will get to shortly,  Mogul Productions runs its own staking programs.  Staking means locking your tokens in a staking pool to earn rewards  in the form of more STARS tokens.   Participants have the opportunity to lock their tokens for specified periods of time to receive a STARS reward rate defined by the pool they are entering.  The longer the lockup, the more rewards!    

Mogul Productions -Voting is Back - NFT Marketplace
Let’s Make A Film Together!  VOTING IS BACK

Stars is used for green lighting film projects

Mogul Productions is a decentralized film financing (DeFiFi) and NFT platform that connects creators, movie fans, and film financiers in one space to ensure the best films get made by giving everyone a voice. 

By leveraging blockchain technology and a tokenized system, Mogul incentivizes participation and rewards engagement. Through the use of STARS tokens, users can vote on, greenlight and participate in key decision-making aspects of production. 

Up to 50% rewards from Mogul-produced movies goes back to the Stars voting stakers

Quadratic voting promotes active participation in voting from all of the STARS token holders, regardless of their size, because each holder has a voice in the process. Small holders have a proportionally large voice; which in turn allows Mogul to gauge the sentiment across our entire community, and not just a few large holders!

That’s the premise of Mogul. Bringing power back to the crowd

Mogul’s production team and advisors are award-winning Hollywood veterans who have written, directed, acted in, and produced a wide range of films and TV shows. Our team reviews film submissions. 

Mogul then comes up with a shortlist of films to vote on based on the producer’s recommendations and expertise.   We’d present those films to the community. Then the community votes on what film they want to see turned into a cinematic release. 

NFTs campaigns are then custom-built for each movie.

Are you an indie filmmaker with a vision? Submit a project proposal for a chance to have your idea funded.  When you submit a project, our panel reviews it and the successful projects will be put into the showcase.

Fund Your Project

More Utility

Mogul is constantly building ways to add more utility to the STARS. This includes but is not limited to usage in new film and crypto projects, mores ways to spend the token on other platforms, and getting the token listed on other exchanges.

Supernovas reward STARS token holders

Mogul is always thinking of ways to give more utility to STARS.  Each time STARS are used for in-app activities, Mogul destroys a portion of the STARS used to complete the action.  

That includes:

  • Purchasing limited-edition NFTs that are only made available to STARS holders
  • Purchasing rewards with STARS
  • Submitting scripts for Mogul’s review

Here at Mogul, we call it a Supernova when a portion of STARS are permanently taken out of circulation, or burned.  Supernovas allow users to buy more NFTs with their STARS, as well as protect and reward our community of token holders. Supernovas are scheduled to occur on the third Friday of every month and more may be added as circumstances allow.

Mogul Partners with Beem to Drive Exclusive Content & STARS Adoption

Mogul Productions, a DeFi and NFT marketplace platform for the film and entertainment industry, is collaborating with Beem, which offers a web3 video live streaming and distribution solution.

The partnership will see Mogul’s native token, STARS, be integrated into Beem’s ecosystem. Beem users will be able to pay with STARS to consume Web3 content directly on the platform. 

STARS is the utility and governance token that fuels the Mogul ecosystem. It enables Mogul users to buy NFTs (non-fungible tokens) on its marketplace, vote on which film projects to get funded, receive discounts on purchases, earn returns for staking, and redeem exclusive rewards.

Beem is the place where content creators use advanced video and NFT tools to meet with their communities. For Mogul creators, the partnership will bring new monetization and community utility opportunities. Producers, artists and creators on Mogul can use Beem to partake in token-gated events, live experiences, and screenings. The collaboration will enable Mogul to monetize add-ons or charge streaming fees, including to users who don’t own NFTs.

Beem is fueled by its native token $Beem.  The platform supports a new generation of emerging creators, which focus on the ownership economy and value independence. Creators build real communities through direct relationships instead of renting audiences from social media platforms. The latter can be used to funnel new followers into a customized space that is fully controlled and owned by creators. NFTs empower creators by offering transparent and customizable monetization options.

With Beem, Mogul will further be able to meet the demands of the new generation of Web3 content creators, giving them the opportunity to leverage some of the best blockchain and NFT tools in the industry. One of the key achievements of the partnership is that NFT holders on Mogul can partake in token-gated events. For example, if a film that partnered with Mogul had a virtual meet and greet or BTS screening, NFT holders could verify their NFT on the Beem App and then interact with that content.

How can DAOs involve fans in filmmaking? Expert answers

Jake Fraser believes that DAOs can let fans get involved from the scriptwriting process to the selection of actors who will play in a film.

As more people begin to integrate Web3 technologies into entertainment and production, the use case for decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) in filmmaking has been highlighted in a Cointelegraph interview with Jake Fraser, the head of business development at the film-focused blockchain project Mogul Productions.

When it comes to DAO usage in films, a deeper level of fan engagement was highlighted by Fraser. As an example, the executive pointed out the involvement of fans in the production process, such as in creating the script, choosing stories and picking the location. He explained that: 

“DAOs come into play within the film industry by enabling the fans to become more involved with decision making through the whole script to screen process of making a film.”

Fungible Vs. Non Fungible Tokens: What is the Difference?

Some time ago, most people were not interested in non-fungible tokens and didn’t even care to know what they meant and what they stood for. 

It is quite another story today because the internet is filled with different stories about NFT projects, how to invest in NFT, and many similar topics. 

Because of how complex NFTs are, it can be challenging to explain to people how these tokens work and how contrasting it is with fungible tokens. 

Continue reading as we explore together the major differences that are shared by fungible and non-fungible tokens both in technologies and use cases. 

What Are Fungible And Non Fungible Tokens? 

You may not understand to a good extent the little or no similarities that are found when fungible and non-fungible tokens are examined. 

Fungible tokens are items that can easily be interchanged with another similar one; they are not unique. An excellent example of fungible tokens is the US dollar, which is more relatable. 

When you pick a 100-dollar bill, and then you meet another person who has another 100-dollar bill, the two of you can easily exchange them without any reduction in value or design. For fungible tokens, they are more known because of the value they have and not because of their rarity since they are interchangeable. 

Another angle to look at fungible tokens is that they don’t have an original owner; currently, have you seen a dollar that has a traceable original owner? 

All this is quite the opposite of non-fungible tokens; they exhibit the quality of uniqueness, and another NFT cannot interchange them. Unlike fungible tokens, the original owner and the current owner of a non-fungible token can be traced using the blockchain. 

The creation, existence, and issuance of NFTs rely on the blockchain, and some of the most popular networks for NFTs are ERC-721 and ERC – 1155. The Ethereum network is not a monotonous blockchain where NFTs exist; NFTs can be created and issued on Polygon and Binance blockchains. 

NFT Blockchain Networks 

Ethereum 

Ethereum blockchain is the leading platform where the existence and issuance of NFTs thrive very well; more than half of the NFT market lies on the Ethereum network. 

The Ethereum blockchain is not a closed-source network; its governance token (ETH) is the largest asset in the crypto market by market cap after Bitcoin. Because of its ability to provide a platform for blockchain developers to develop services and applications, NFTs are minted in large numbers on the Ethereum blockchain. 

Polygon 

The Polygon network is another blockchain that accommodates the existence and creation of non-fungible tokens. 

The framework offered by this network is compatible with developers to create scaling solutions and financial services. 

Solana 

Dubbed as one of the fastest programming blockchains, Solana uses a combination of proof of stake and evidence of history to ensure simplicity on the blockchain. 

Although Solana isn’t widely used as Ethereum, its POS and POH mechanisms create a platform where NFTs are made and sold with reduced gas fees and transaction time. 

Difference Between Fungible And Non-Fungible Tokens 

Features 

Features are the leading difference between fungible and non-fungible tokens; the two of them go in parallel lines in terms of features. 

Fungible tokens are divisible, meaning you can take a 100-dollar bill and then divide it into two to give you a 50-dollar bill each. In the same way, you can also take one Bitcoin and then divide it into two to give 0.5 Bitcoin each. 

This is very different from non-fungible tokens; Bored Ape Yacht Club cannot be divided into two to give Crypto Kitties

Fungible tokens are also interchangeable because you can easily exchange 200 dollars with another person with the same 200 dollars without noticing differences. Another instance is that you can easily convert your Ethereum to Solana or another cryptocurrency without any problem. 

This doesn’t apply to non-fungible tokens because you can’t interchange Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs with Crypto Kitties; they are not interchangeable. 

Rarity is another difference between NFTs and fungible tokens; NFTs are unique while there are so many similar fungible tokens. The details in every US 100 dollar note are the same: the images and the symbols on the dollar note. For NFTs, the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT has its differences and is unique from other NFTs. 

Use cases 

Non Fungible tokens and fungible tokens do not perform the same purposes or solve similar problems in the real world. 

Fungible tokens are primarily used as a form of payment for services and products, just as the US dollar is used as a yardstick while performing financial transactions. Most of the time, the trades and transactions that occur in real-world scenarios are made using fungible tokens such as cryptocurrencies and fiat

Fungible tokens also act as a store of value whereby the token maintains its value instead of having constant volatility and depreciation. The currency of a nation, like the US dollar, functions as some store of value to the economy of the United States. 

Non-fungible Tokens, on the other hand, primarily function as a way of maintaining the intellectual rights and property of artwork and other things. Those who have intellectual properties that are in the form of music, videos, files, and even old tweets can easily convert them to NFT and claim the right as the owner. 

Non Fungible Tokens are also used in the gaming industry to ensure that players are well compensated and rewarded for their activity on gaming platforms. Some gaming platforms such as Axie Infinity and The Sandbox use non-fungible tokens to reward their users as in-game collectibles. 

Another feature NFTs have that does not exist for fungible tokens is that they are used in the healthcare sector to create lifelong identity verification. 

Isn’t that awesome? The birth certificates of a baby can easily be converted to an NFT, making it impossible for the data on the NFT to be tampered with or destroyed. 

Types Of NFTs And Fungible Tokens 

The varieties of NFTs that are in existence are pretty different from fungible tokens; in some cases, they are not related in any way. 

For fungible tokens, the types are broken down into utility tokens, governance tokens, and security tokens. 

Utility tokens are fungible tokens that help to grant users access to a particular platform or service on the blockchain. The primary function of these utility tokens is to serve as a reward for performing some activities in a platform or ecosystem. 

When it comes to cryptocurrencies, governance tokens function as some form of voting right for users of an ecosystem to dictate how the ecosystem should be operated. 

Unlike other fungible tokens, security tokens don’t often get recognition on social media and the internet because they don’t serve many purposes. The primary purpose served by security tokens is that it functions as a way of getting some form of ownership in a company. 

There are many kinds of non-fungible tokens, too, including video, collectibles, music, art, and game NFTs. 

Video NFTs are a kind of non-fungibles made using moving pictures through blockchain technology to create and issue NFTs. Video NFTs are closely related to music NFTs; the only difference is that while the first may be moving pictures, the latter is organized sounds. 

Game NFTs are in-game items in the form of NFTs that are used by gaming companies such as The Sandbox to reward their players. 

Art NFTs are created mainly by digital artists who do not want their art or intellectual property pirated by other people without well-deserved credits. By converting their art to NFTs, they will forever remain the original owners of that art, whether the ownership rights are transferred or not. 

Value Transfer 

Value transfer differs between fungible and non-fungible tokens; one is based on the number of tokens involved, and the other is based on uniqueness. 

The value transfer of fungible tokens is determined by the number of tokens in the owner’s wallet. Assuming you are transferring Ethereum or 100 dollars to another wallet or account, the value primarily depends on the amount you will be moving. 

In the case of non-fungible tokens, the value transfer of the tokens relies more on the uniqueness of the token. You should know that the more an NFT has rare or unique features, the more the value of the NFT will likely increase. 

It is the uniqueness of the NFT that helps to drive the number of expectations that community members have for an NFT and the excitement behind the project. 

However, one should note that the rarity and value of an NFT are not only determined by its number of traits. The traits of an NFT should be so uncommon that they should not be found in another NFT; this will help drive up the price and evaluation of the NFT. 

Wrapping up 

Fungible and non-fungible tokens have little or no similarities but have significant differences, making them so contrasting. 

While fungible tokens can easily be divided and interchanged with other fungible tokens, NFTs are unique and don’t have a replacement. 

Currently, most fungible tokens are used as a store of value and for financial services, while non-fungible tokens are mainly used for rewards on gaming platforms.

Mogul Partners with Acclaimed Filmmaker Anthony Hayes to Launch a Limited NFT Series for Upcoming Sci-Fi Trilogy “Retrogression”

Multi-award-winning filmmaker and actor Anthony Hayes is launching an NFT Series in partnership with Mogul Productions. The proceeds from these NFT sales will finance the new sci-fi film trilogy, “Retrogression.”

Retrogression is a feature film that is part of a three part Sci-Fi trilogy directed by highly acclaimed Australian Filmmaker Anthony Hayes. Hayes is the Producer/Director of GOLD starring Zac Efron, which is out around the World now. As an actor he has starred in WAR MACHINE with Brad Pitt, THE ROVER with Robert Pattinson, LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS with Michael Fassbender and ANIMAL KINGDOM with Joel Edgerton.

Retrogression is another big step forward for Mogul as they look to drive positive change in the entertainment industry by leveraging their platform to empower incredible filmmakers to maintain more financial and creative autonomy. This in conjunction with getting passionate film fans involved in the script to screen process enables a community driven approach to getting the next blockbuster made. The NFT collection will be used as a vehicle to help drive financing and launch the film into production.

The Dark Army is a limited edition mint of an exclusive NFT collection of film-based character NFTs drawn from the sci-fi world of Retrogression – a blockbuster, Hollywood film franchise in development set 300 years in the future. The Dark Army are the enforcers of the law on the desperate island of Omega – one of the few habitable land masses left after the devastation of rising seas caused by climate change. The Dark Army police the Slave Factories, where the poor are forced to work, making “green” products for the rich, who live in massive, luxurious floating cities.

The Dark Army NFT collection is one-of-a-kind, incorporating a limited number of random, super-rare NFTs that entitle the holder/s to perks such as an Executive Producer credit on the first Retrogression feature film. Other rare NFTs will entitle the holder to an exclusive on-set visit during filming, while others will entitle the holder to an appearance as a featured player in the film. Each NFT will as a minimum include: Beta testing passes to play the Retrogression game​, a digital image of a costume from the film, location Scout Shots​ NFT, Exclusive access to Behind the Scenes Shots and Interviews​ on FilmCrib.io, Storyboard Art​ NFT, Access to Exclusive Clips​ on FilmCrib.io. The collection ecompasses more than 15 types of holder utility across both physical and virtual.

The collection will be launched on the Ethereum Blockchain as ERC-721 tokens and purchasable in either Ethereum or ERC-20 STARS tokens. The minting process will be a “Lazy Mint” which is where each NFT minted is completely randomized using Chainlink’s provably fair minting system which is integrated into the Mogul platform, giving each buyer an equal opportunity to land a super-rare NFT.

The NFTs will be individually numbered, divided into military ranks and come in gold, chrome and hologram – all in full 3D designs which are displayed in GLB files that enable the holder to get a full 360 degree view of their NFT.

The super-rare NFT of the Dark Army’s leader – General McKinsky – will have a limited mint of only 10 in each color. The total collection size will be 1,530 units. Each NFT will have further utility built in, enabling future integration as character Avatars into various Metaverses where the Retrogression P2E Gaming experience will be hosted.

From the animators that brought The Simpsons series, The Simpsons Movie and VR attractions at Universal Studios Japan comes the first ever NFT animated series.

The collection of 1,923 handcrafted CGI NFTs is inspired by the last 100 years of Hollywood characters and personalities in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Hollywood sign.   All of which leads into the upcoming animated series, and new Mogieland metaverse.

Mogies Collection & Rarity Information

Mogies were made in partnership and designed by Erick Tran and his team at CHAVVO Studios. The award-winning, transmedia production team has worked with major Hollywood studios including Disney, Universal, Marvel Entertainment, Sony Animation, Cartoon Network, Fox, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon, and EA. 

The team has been involved in the production of major box office hits including The Simpsons Movie and series, Kung Fu Panda, The Avengers and many more.

CHAVVO is committed to the Mogieland NFT community and new animated series.

“Mogieland is a homage to Hollywood, to our favorite characters, actors, and movies that have made us. Mogul is set out to make this the very first NFT animated series and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them. Mogul has given us creative freedom to develop something original and special in this space. It’s great to see Mogul supporting creators and the animation community like very few others have. We are committed to this project and the NFT community. As a NFT producer we want to be a major player in the NFT space. Working with Mogul, I can see that really coming to fruition.” says Erick Tran. 

What are Mogies?

The Hollywood sign is turning 100, and the Mogies are celebrating! 😎

​​Mogies are a NFT collection of 1923 NFTs inspired by the last 100 years of Hollywood characters and personalities in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Hollywood sign being erected. This parody collection is to pay homage to the top entertainers and creators that helped Hollywood become what it is today, and create a standard for the next 100 years of filmmaking that will occur within Film3 – a movement spearheaded by Mogul and our community to empower creators to create movies and content in more fan exclusive ways using blockchain technology in the Metaverse. Mogul is where movies meet blockchain through DeFi, NFTs – and now, the Metaverse through Mogies and Mogieland.

Enter Mogies – the characters of the Metaverse. Enter Mogieland. The Metaverse for Movies. 

Mogies in Mogieland - Characters of the Metaverse

Mogies are aliens that feed on entertainment. They love it! They have come to Earth because it’s the biggest source of entertainment in the universe. Humans are humans until they enter Mogieland, and then, when they enter, they become a Mogie.

Mogies are the citizens of Mogieland. They look and act like all our favorite film and TV characters and Hollywood icons from the past 100 years. In actuality, they are aliens from an advanced race that use “lasers” to transform the landscape in the blink of an eye. They feed off entertainment as energy, and travel across the Universe absorbing this vital resource, sucking intelligent worlds dry and moving along to the next. Earth stands to be the biggest source of entertainment and salvation because when our little Mogies get bored, they die. Ultimately, they’re passionate cosplayers and the biggest fans in the galaxy. Mogieland is their Comic-Con, and they have every intention to ensure it lasts forever.

What is Mogieland?

250 MILES EAST OF HOLLYWOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOJAVE DESERT. 

Population: 1923.

Amidst scrub brush and desert dunes, a UFO landed and then obscured 10 sq. miles in a region now known as THE BLUR —- a shrouded forcefield that has taken the shape of an old tube television laid on its back. What goes on behind its opaque borders has remained a mystery…until now.

Mogieland is where Mogies live, and is a Metaverse inspired by the traditional landmarks of Hollywood. Hollywood is a larger-than-life characterization of the entertainment industry and has become a top place in the world for tourism – but not everyone across the world can experience the glamor and excitement of Tinseltown… 

Enter Mogieland. It’s the Metaverse for film, where cultural attractions, movie premieres, red carpet events, concerts, and even celebrity sightings are brought to the world of Film3.   A place where the Greek Theatre, TCL Chinese Theatre, and even Studio City are represented by their transitory counterpart in Mogieland – powered by STARS tokens. Mogies can spend the morning playing-to-earn in Studio City,  the afternoon catching celebrities at Runyon Canyon, and the evening at the Hollywood sign overlooking the energy of Mogieland’s latest film premiere.

In Mogieland, users will be able to buy their own land, build, take their Mogies to film premieres, movie theaters, red carpet events, concerts, fashion shows, and even play games to earn in Studio City. It’s a virtual place where Mogul partners with movies, celebrities, entertainers, fashion icons and other star studded individuals globally to do Metaverse movie premieres at traditionally iconic Hollywood locations, and sell tickets in STARS  where holders will be able to virtually meet and socialize with all these industry Moguls. Mogieland breaks geographical barriers to access exclusive events and brings them global in a universe where brands, fans, movies, and celebrities can meet, collaborate, and create where movies meet blockchain.

Much more utility and many more features are being added in Mogieland over time as Mogul expands its rapidly growing list of partners.

All Mogie holders will receive a piece of land in Mogieland. If a purchaser owns a Mogie and an Access Pass they will receive two plots of land in Mogieland. If a purchaser owns a Mogie, Access Pass, and a certain threshold of STARS tokens to be announced at a later date, they will receive 3 plots of land in Mogieland. These plots of land are randomly distributed according to the type of Mogie and Access Pass.

Rarer Mogies and Access Passes will have a higher weighting to receive more coveted locations of land.

How do I purchase a Mogie?

Mogies are ERC721 NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain and can only be purchased through the Mogul NFT marketplace in the primary market. In the secondary market, Mogies will be available on the Mogul Marketplace, OpenSea, Rarible, and LooksRare. The Mogie that a purchaser will receive is verifiably random

There are 1923 total NFTs which will be issued in the following phases. Mogies are sold in ETH, but can be purchased in ERC20 STARS tokens at a 10% discount to reward our holders.

Four phases of the sale:

  • Phase 1: Dutch Auction
    • A dutch auction for the general public starting at 1 ETH that includes 800 Mogies. This is available for everyone globally and will have 24 hour tiers
      • 1 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.8 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.6 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.4 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.2 ETH tier lasts 24 hours 
    • The pricing for the next phase will equal the price paid for the last NFT sold during the dutch auction
      • If all 800 NFTs sell at the 1 ETH level, then the price of the next phase will be 1 ETH
      • If the 800 NFTs do not sell during the dutch auction, the remainder will be allocated to the public sale 
  • Phase 2: Whitelist Sale for Access Pass holders only 
  • Phase 3: Public Sale – 72 hours
  • Phase 3.5: Bonus Mint
    • Any unsold NFTs will be allocated to the first purchasers from the dutch auction
    • This phase will only occur in the unlikely event that the Mogies allocated for public sale do not sell out within a 72 hour period
  • Phase 4: Rebate + Reveal

If the total number of NFTs allocated for public and whitelist sale do not sell out, then the first purchasers of Mogies through the Dutch auction will have the opportunity to mint the remaining Mogies for free (aside from the gas fee required) after 72 hours of the public sale has passed. For example, if there are 15 Mogies left unsold, then the first 15 purchasers through the dutch auction will have their wallet address whitelisted to mint 1 Mogie each for free after the public sale. 

How does the Whitelist work?

Owners of Mogul Access Passes will be the only people eligible for the whitelist. Access Passes can be purchased here: https://opensea.io/collection/mogul-nft 

There are 5 tiers of Access Passes that are granted the utility to mint a Mogie in the whitelist phase. The benefit of the whitelist phase is that you are guaranteed to be able to mint a Mogie at the lowest price offered through the dutch auction during a specific window. 

There are 1,073 NFTs allocated for whitelist spots, and addresses are whitelisted according to the tier of Access Pass they own on a first-come-first-serve basis. Access Pass holders can mint any number of Mogies they wish at the lowest price of the dutch auction. 

In the event that the 1,073 Mogies do not sell out, then the sale will enter the next stage – the public sale. In the event they do sell out, then there will be no public sale and the sale will enter the phase of Rebate & Reveal

Mogie Holders in Mogieland - ERC20 STARS tokens - Mogie and Access Pass

How does the STARS rebate work?

A rebate is a bonus given to a purchaser to reward them for purchasing early. 

Example: 

  • Let’s say a user purchases a Mogie for 1 ETH and the dutch auction closes at 0.6 ETH
  • 1 ETH minus 0.6 ETH is 0.4 ETH. This is the amount of ETH that will be eligible for a rebate
  • Let’s assume the price of STARS is 5 cents and the price of ETH is $3000
  • 0.4 ETH therefore is $1200, which is the amount eligible for the STARS rebate
  • Since the user purchased at 1 ETH, the $1200 delta between their purchase price and the lowest price in the dutch auction is multiplied by 1.5x. Therefore, the user gets an $1800 rebate in STARS tokens 
  • Since STARS tokens are valued at 5 cents, the user will receive 36,000 STARS as a rebate

The rebate coupled with other bonuses make it more advantageous for a user to purchase a Mogie early.

What is the Mogies derivative collection?

Mogies derivatives are part of a separate NFT collection and contract separate, but linked, to the official Mogies collection to maintain the provenance and collectibility of the original Mogies. Derivatives of Mogies, such as the gold embossed and silver embossed Mogies, will live in this collection to reward Mogies holders.

The gold embossed Mogies, which are gifted to the first purchasers of Mogies in the dutch auction, will forever be stamped in the Mogieland Hall of Fame. 

This collection is meant for rare spinoffs, fashion items, and event-driven NFTs related to Mogies and Mogieland for collectors, fans, and users. 

Mogies in Mogieland - NFT Collection - Chavvo Studios The Simpsons

The Artists

Mogies were created by Erick Tran and his team at Chavvo Studios in partnership with Mogul Productions. 

Erick Tran and his team at Chavvo are the animators of the Simpsons and King of the Hill. He and his team have won Telly, Emmy, and Peabody awards for their work. They were responsible for the design of the Simpsons ride at Universal Studios, have consulted with Electronic Arts on the Simpsons video games, and played an integral role in the development of the virtual reality roller coaster rides at Universal Studios Japan; including Doraemon, Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, and more. Their experience in licensing, merchandising, animation, and video games for multi-billion dollar franchises will help propel Mogieland and Mogies to the next level as Mogul’s co-partners.

How were Mogies made?

Mogies are all 1/1 NFTs that are sculpted individually using computer generated imagery (CGI). There was no programming used to copy characteristics from one Mogie to another – each was hand sculpted. 

The first step in creating a Mogie was to have the design team create character references and hand-drawn 2D sketches of the character. Then, each character goes through a rigging process to create the 3D skeletal model of the character. This allows the character to easily be transformed into animated versions of themselves. The last step is to bring the characters to life with the Mogies animators.

If Mogies were 2D characters, and did not go through this process, they could not exist in a 3D space like the Metaverse. Mogies, due to this rigorous design process, can easily walk through the space and live in Mogieland.

How are Mogies rarities determined? 

Mogies have 7 different facial expressions that are based on the 7 universal emotions that humans wear on their face. These facial expressions will play a role in how their characters will interact in future Mogies series’ and creative concepts.

Mogies have 5 tiers of rarity, which are denoted from the background in the NFT.

  1. Anger
  2. Fear
  3. Disgust 
  4. Happy
  5. Sad
  6. Surprise
  7. Contempt

These expressions were assigned custom to each Mogie based on their perceived personality.

Mogies also have a STAR Ranking in their metadata, which is a score out of 100 denoting the popularity of the Mogie in Mogieland.

There are a select number of Mogies that have angel wings. If the actor that played the Mogie character passed away outside of Mogieland at the time of the mint, their Mogie character has been represented with angel wings. 

There are several different colors of flat backgrounds in Tier 5 Mogies. These were chosen on an aesthetic basis by the animators of the Mogies and colors were grouped together with families of Mogie characters.

What is Film3?

Getting to Web 3

Web1 is an era of the internet where people could post content and it could be consumed by others.  Web 2.0 is the era of the social internet or the web as a platform, but where large companies owned all of the data being posted on them, combining mobile, social and cloud computing.

Web3 is the ownership and collaboration economy.  Web 3.0 are virtual business models, or places parallel to our physical world, built upon the core concepts of decentralization, openness, trustless networks, powered by encrypted, accountable distributed ledgers, where you can own and monetize your own content directly with a community or network.  It combines various tech like AR and VR to create centralized virtual spaces where people can meet, work and play.

Film3 is the filmmaking version of Web 3.0.

If Film 1.0 represented the era of making more movies and hoping they get consumed, and Film 2.0 represents the consolidation of the studios and everyone generally having to go through them and their distribution channels to get a movie project greenlighted, then Film3 is where the economy of Web 3.0 melds with filmmaking. It represents ownership and monetization of your own content without needing big studios to get a film produced and distributed through Decentralized Film Financing (DeFiFi) which also includes NFTs.

Film3 infrastructure is taking place online.  It is the immersive experience of filmmaking in blockchain and metaverse spaces.  The newest layers of the entertainment industry are being built online.  Production companies, film companies, streaming platforms, financing, advertising and more aspects of the filmmaking process are on the internet in a more transparent way.  

Filmmaking has become very Hollywood-centric and cliquey.   Only a few key decision makers act as gatekeepers for content. Studios run the show in terms of determining what content goes out because they’ve  become more vertically integrated and have lots of cash.

Film financing structures are expensive, inefficient and restrictive.  It enhances the power imbalance between distributors and indie films.

There’s a lack of funding access for indie films. Budget standards exist in silos. There is poor market data for international sales.  Even for key decision makers,  there is a lack of information regarding support for what types of film the fans actually wish to watch and engage with?   Post production is a lengthy process, often occurring without fan participation or even fan awareness. 

Film3 solves the power imbalance. 

Bottom-up design 

Film3 is being developed in full view of everyone, encouraging maximum participation and experimentation.  

New ways of financing are igniting new trends for indie filmmaking.   Too many great potential films don’t get made, due to the studios powers making it difficult for the little guys, including indie filmmakers and movie fans, to have their voices heard.  

That all changes with Film3.

With Film3, movies are made with the fans.  

For filmmakers that were struggling to get financing or to launch their story into the market, Film3 fills a gap.

The whole premise of Film3 is to enable filmmakers to get their stories turned into cinematic releases.  Film3 pioneers offer movie fans a piece of the action on movies they want to support. Through Film3, the fanbase is part of the film production.  They become a force in the decision making process.  

A film’s net proceeds can be distributed back to the fanbase community, via a blockchain smart contract.   The modern movie fan is part of a collective that lets their voice be heard, both online and off. They mobilize and fight for what they are passionate about, to the point that real changes get made to Hollywood projects. 

Film3 is built by innovative groups and partners upon the notion of decentralization, transparency, and greater user utility for fans, collectors and filmmakers.

Arabian Camels is the first NFT community to create a $50M DeFi Hollywood movie which is owned together with everyone via NFTs.

First dropped in 2021, the Arabian Camels collection helped lay the foundation for IP from the upcoming feature film Antara.   NFT holders can get acting parts in the film, access to the film’s premiere, and part-ownership of the movie, enabling them to partake in box office and streaming revenues. The community is also eligible to earn a yield on their NFTs during production. 

The vision behind Arabian Camels is to create a whole new platform and ecosystem where creators, producers, digital artists, and communities can collaborate to create something special for movie lovers. 

The Film3 landscape currently consists of subcategories

Decentralized Production Companies

Crowdfunding

Virtual Cinemas 

Film/Series using NFTs

Film related platforms 

Film related DAOs

NEARVERSE fits in the Virtual Cinemas subcategory.  They partner with Film3 communities to scale metaverse development in virtual cinemas and user engagement. NEARVERSE  is a metaverse focused on empowering artists, and provides the ability for every player to earn through exploration, by giving options to create epic lands and interactions thus enabling users to embark on a new journey within a thriving metacommunity. 

Mogul Productions is a leader in all Film3 subcategories. 

Filmmakers use Mogul as a platform to launch their movie campaigns.  Mogul and its partners establish product lines to connect movie-makers with fans to decentralize the filmmaking process and provide better fan engagement opportunities.  

Mogul partners with artists, filmmakers, actors, and other entertainers to provide an end-to-end solution for minting and launching their own NFT collections through their marketplace. They are an immersive and inclusive platform transforming how movies and other forms of art and entertainment get funded by allowing members of its expansive community to participate in the production process like never before.  

Projects are greenlit through a combination of voter staking, NFT film memorabilia sales, private funding, and film funds. 

From script to screen, Film3 has 3 pillars.  

  1. Decentralized Film Financing platform (DeFiFi)
  2. NFT marketplace
  3. Metaverse

DeFiFi Platform 

Indie filmmakers are able to get their movies financed by incentivizing from their fans.   Crypto-based decentralized platforms allow fans to participate in the box office revenues, conduct voting and governance on key film decision aspects, plus reward users through voter staking and other incentives.  It brings a whole new level of movie promotions along with the financing. 

NFT Marketplace 

Utility based NFTs are designed to create incentive structures by bringing fans closer to the action via different forms of experiential utility and behind-the-scenes access. Independent filmmakers can  monetize NFTs during the pre-production and production phases of filmmaking as a means of funding their work.

A few examples of utility-based NFTs could be getting producer credits on a film or getting access to behind-the-scenes content. It could be meeting a lead actor for facetime, or one-of-a-kind film memorabilia or invitations to exclusive events like red carpet premieres.

Experience Hollywood in the Metaverse

Social trends are changing.  During the Film 2.0 era,  going out to the movies was a large social pastime.  It still is.  Yet, with streaming services and now home movie watching, the pastime  has lost a lot of what it once had.  The Metaverse has the ability to bring that back

Mogieland is Hollywood in the metaverse.  It is a Film3 digital reality that combines aspects of social media, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and cryptocurrencies to allow fans and other users to interact virtually.  Visual elements are overlaid with sounds, CG, and other inputs to enhance the user experience and enhance fictional realities.

Users from around the world can host and attend digital movie premieres.  

They can…

  • Go to movie premieres and red carpet events
  • Mingle with film and entertainment creators plus get behind-the-scenes looks 
  • Attend meet and greets with the stars
  • Attend first screening viewings of films
  • Watch movies with tickets paid for in tokens

  • Own, build, rent and use land for Film3 commerce.

Introducing the Film3 lifecycle. 

Through decentralized applications

  • Filmmakers can launch their Intellectual Property (IP) to a dedicated audience via DeFi and NFTs.
  • Financing and payment distribution is handled through smart contracts, providing access to global non-dilutive capital.
  • Incentivized engagement is used to build a fanbase, and de-risk distribution. Exclusive film content is issued to fans through NFT smart contracts.  
  • Smarter data using built-in fanbases drive decisions across entire slates.

To summarize, Film3 is the next generation of media, disrupting legacy models by utilizing blockchain technology and the power of digital communities. By eliminating the many layers of middlemen between artist and audience, revenue can be distributed across a flat organizational structure. 

Film3 gives independent filmmakers unprecedented access to financing; offers them greater creative control over their projects; allows them to leverage their audience and industry connections in new, revolutionary ways; and creates a more equitable financial model that benefits creators before creditors.
