A battalion of 2D and 3D NFT Solarmy Soldiers

We’re excited to announce that on September 29, the Solarmy Soldier NFTs will be launching on DropZone!

Solarmy is a limited battalion of 2D and 3D NFT Soldiers — unique digital collectibles living on the Solana blockchain. Your Soldier doubles as your Solarmy membership and grants access to Soldier-only benefits.

This article will cover the two sections: 1) the DropZone launch on Raydium 2) Drop Box redemption for an NFT.

1. Soldier DropZone launch:

DropZone Process Overview:

  1. When the DropZone pool opens, users deposit SOL to enter tickets in the lottery for an NFT allocation.
  2. Each winning ticket can claim a “Drop Box” token which represents one NFT allocation. Non-winning tickets claim back SOL.
  3. Each Drop Box token can then be redeemed on the project’s website to mint one original NFT from the project collection at random.

Eligibility and pool details:

There will be one SOL pool available for the Solarmy drop.

  • Allocation will be determined by a lottery system.
  • Allocation for one winning lottery ticket: 1 Drop Box
  • Deposits will be capped at 6 SOL per user, equal to 3 tickets
  • The pool will be open for 5 minutes
  • There are no RAY staking requirements for the Solarmy drop

How does it work?

Tickets: Users are eligible for 3 tickets maximum. However, for a ticket to be counted in the lottery, users must deposit SOL for each ticket they wish to have entered.

  • Example: All users can deposit 3 tickets worth of SOL. Alice deposits 6 SOL for 3 tickets. Bob deposits 2 SOL for 1 ticket.

Deposit: When the pool opens, users will need to deposit 2 SOL for each ticket for it to be counted in the lottery. Users can choose to deposit less than their total ticket allocation (3 tickets), however, tickets without a matching deposit will not be entered in the lottery. Deposits must be in multiples of 2 SOL.

  • Alice deposits 6 SOL, her maximum, to ensure that all 3 of her tickets are entered in the lottery. Bob deposits 2 SOL even though he has 3 tickets. In Bob’s case, only 1 ticket will be entered in the lottery.

Lottery: Once the pool closes, the lottery will take place, and winning tickets will receive a Drop Box for 2 SOL, each. The Drop Box can be redeemed on the Solarmy website for a random 2D or 3D Soldier NFT.

IMPORTANT: Drop Boxes must be redeemed on the Solarmy website by October 2, 15:00 UTC.

  • Example: Alice has 2 winning tickets and will receive 2 Drop Boxes for 4 SOL. Bob does not have any winning tickets, better luck next time, Bob.

Claim: Once the lottery is complete users will be able to claim their SOL for any tickets that did not win as well as claim their Drop Boxes for winning tickets. Users can then redeem their Drop Box on the Solarmy website (details below).

  • Example: Alice claims 2 SOL for her 1 non-winning ticket and Bob also claims his 2 SOL for his 1 non-winning ticket after the lottery concludes. Alice claims her 2 Drop Boxes from Raydium and can immediately redeem her 2 Drop Boxes on the Solarmy website for 2 Soldier NFTs or choose to trade her Drop Boxes and allow someone else to claim.

Lottery Transparency

The lottery will be done on-chain, with lottery numbers assigned to tickets in the order that users deposit in the pool. After the pool closes, winning numbers will be determined by hashing a block, multiplying it by the timestamp, and matching the last 2 digits of that number with user ticket numbers. Any ticket number with the last 2 digits matching is designated a winning ticket. This process will be repeated until all the winners are determined.

2. Drop Box redemption for a Solarmy Soldier NFT:

  • After the DropZone lottery ends, users can claim their winning Drop Box.
  • Users can then navigate to the Solarmy website and immediately redeem their Drop Box for one Solarmy SoldierNFT.
  • Drop Boxes must be redeemed on the Solarmy website by October 2, 15:00 UTC.

Note: Drop Boxes are transferable and tradable prior to redemption, but they must be redeemed for a Solarmy Soldier by October 2, 15:00 UTC.

For questions on redemption, please contact Solarmy.

About The Soldiers:

The Solarmy is an inter-dimensional freedom fighting battalion of the future where all members are connected to each other through a high-tech implant. Depending on the task at hand this chip maintains their free will, while also making it easier for all of them to enter a mind-meld where they all work in unison. Soldiers all have their specific roles but the army has little to no hierarchy because the chip implant allows all soldiers to reach a consensus that’s always aimed toward the higher good of all beings. All NFT holders will have access to the Soldier DAO, only accessible with their NFT — through Grape Protocol.
