When will the project begin?
The project will begin in the fall of 2022, but there are ways to join in and participate now.
What should I do before the project begins?
How much will the NFTs cost?
The experience (from online learning, to community collaboration, to interactive elements) will be free to participate in for those with a crypto wallet.
At the end of each chapter in the journey, you will become eligible to collect limited-edition NFTs the Calder Foundation is creating specifically for this project. The NFTs, along with cost and edition size, will be unveiled this fall prior to the start of The Calder Question online experience.
How do I get Early Edge?
Due to the unique mechanisms of the project, there will not be a traditional allowlist. Instead, a lucky few will have Early Edge, which will grant you priority access to the project, ahead of the general public.
One way to get Early Edge is by collecting The Calder Question TRCABs. TRCABs (TRLab On-Chain Attendance Badge), in a nutshell, are collectible badges that prove your attendance at offline and online events. Think: Scouting Merit Badges that reward you for specific achievements. These tokens can be claimed using your Ethereum address and are delivered to your wallet on the Polygon (MATIC) Network. When you go to OpenSea, you may find these tokens under your "Hidden" tab.
We will reveal more details on how TRCABs will turn into Early Edge spots, prior to the project launch in the fall. Subscribe to receive updates directly to your inbox.
How can I collect The Calder Question TRCABs?
Participate in the TRLab community by attending online and in-person events. From now until the beginning of the project, we'll slowly be releasing ways to collect The Calder Question TRCABs. Whenever there is a The Calder Question TRCAB to be claimed, we will let you know how to do so. Join our Discord, and follow the "#announcements" and "#community-news" channels underneath "The Calder Question" category to stay updated.
