2 and ½ weeks until we kick off the SHOP sale for the RFOX VALT, and we are pleased to bring you further updates this week. This week we will focus on the 5 templates for the SHOPs, the NFT certificates of SHOP ownership and the map for the Callinova quarter. In the coming weeks, we will show you the RFOX VALT auction site, reveal the marquee clients and much more, so stay tuned for that. But for now, let’s get stuck into this week’s updates and remember to follow us, so you never miss an update - join us as we chronicle the RFOX VALT journey.

The RFOX ecosystem explainer is an advert that explains the tie in for all the ventures into the RFOX VALT and the commercial experience it creates. It is more for the mass market audience and is evergreen content. Although the advert is heavily targeted to the SEA region, it is also being advertised in the regions where our current holding audience sits, which is largely made up of AUS, USA and UK.
The 3rd ad, which is more of a gaming themed trailer, is more of an intro to the lore and very different from the first 2 ads. It will premiere about a week before the land sale.
This is true, and we have been asked this question many times. The simple answer is that what we are building is a big concept and quite unique. In order for some of the partners and companies to visualise what we are building, it was important for us to have a better visual representation of what it looks like and how it clicks together. We didn't want to go for the basic whitepaper concept type of sale that is normal for the industry. We wanted to make sure we gave people more information so they could make informed decisions on how and why they wanted to participate.
The team we have is made up of 22 people dedicated to the project and then 5 people from the RFOX core team who are actively working on this in some capacity. Throwing a ton of cash or more people at it, considering the stage of development, will not speed up the process by very much at all. The team we have working on this also contains some very famous designers who will be revealed before the sale, and we are confident this team is building at a pace, considering the quality, that others will only be able to match but not pull hugely ahead. We have the added advantage of being a long way progressed compared to others. It Is very possible others could beat us to market IF they wanted to cut corners, which is something we aren’t interested in doing ourselves. We want this to stand the test of time, and don’t forget we are combining multiple chains, multiple payment methods, an NFT platform, a DeFi arm, a media arm, a TV platform, a gaming division, and VR. We don’t think there is one metaverse in the space doing all those things and basing it on e-commerce and retail. So, we are quietly confident that we have an advantage that will stand the test of time.
We are happy to present to you the 5 external SHOP faces for the Callinova quarter. As shown in previous editions of this blog, these templates are customisable and can have multiple exterior colours and textural changes made. You will notice from the map that the templates are assigned to positions on the map, so if you prefer one template to another, it will pay to bid on the one you like as per its location.
Each SHOP owner will get one of these ownership certificates detailing what it is they have bought and the rights that go along with it.
Many of you have expressed an interest in seeing where on the map the different SHOPs are for sale, and this Callinova map will help to provide you with a guide so you can prepare your bidding strategies.
Now for a little competition. Last week we didn’t have anyone guess what the building was so we will keep the competition open. Go to the 13-August 90-second update, which can be found here and tell us in the comments what you think the building below is and have a guess at who the client might be. Post your answers on the YouTube 90 second update along with your WAX addy.
