NON-FUNGIBLE TOKEN TRL 

 

     Dear friends,

 

     We expect to start distributing TRL_NFT certificates in 2021/22. Smart contracts containing a unique International_Researcher_Certificate_TRL (first or second series) will be given to those who have directly participated in the project over the last few years, as well as to those who have in some way had a significant and, in some cases indirect, impact on the process. It is your day-to-day work that has allowed us to create such an incredible, global social mechanism. This is a wonderful example of direct cooperation between people from across the whole world. It is also a wonderful example of how people can be inspired by the best achievements of past generations and take up the baton by contributing to global development.

     Our calculations show that the first series of certificates will be awarded to people from a variety of professions from more than seventy countries. The number of countries in which second series certificates will be distributed will be published at a later date. We are also introducing a few series of special certificates. These will be awarded to teams from organisations whose activities have played both major and minor roles in the development of TRL.

 

     The basic smart contract for all holders of first, second and special series certificates will contain*:

     1) A NON-FUNGIBLE TOKEN called the “International Researcher Certificate”. This NFT-certificate will be verified by               the TRL Alliance/Science system once the general TRL structure has been released and once we get confirmation               that the certificate has been received. The AMC/KYC will be checked and in the not-too-distant future you will be                   able to apply for research funding in the field stated on your certificate, as well as funding for educational (including             higher qualifications**) and medical programs using this certificate. According to our declaration about supporting               interdisciplinary fields, from 2022 you will be able to request up to three certificates with different Areas of Activity                 and sectors. You can find a short description of the TRL Science Areas of Activity here: LINK. Download documents             in different languages here: LINK. More detailed information will be released once the system has been launched.                 The certificate contains five Areas of Activity and 23 sectors.

     2) One bonus coin that you will be able to monetize at your discretion.

     3) A supplementary “∞TRL∞” smart contract whose algorithm will be published at a later date

*Technical information about smart contracts will be published at a later date

**Don’t forget that the system of licences deigned for TRL Alliance/Science promotes, amongst other things, citizen science and funding of citizen advocacy right across the spectrum. For example, in view of the importance of our translation community, we plan to unveil a dedicated subsystem designed to help translators around the world improve their skills through TRL grants for third-party upskilling programs.

     For holders of first series certificates who have directly participated in the creation of TRL the smart contract will also           include:

  • Three transferable digital coins (as a thank-you to the first TRL volunteers, you will be able to transfer these coins to your relatives and close friends)

  • A Non-fungible token for directly participants of TRL before the media campaign started (the rarest and most unique NFT)

  • A “TRL Global Movement Team” Non-fungible token

     For holders of first series certificates (including special certificates) who have had an indirect impact on the creation       of TRL the smart contract will also include:

  • An “Our Team – Humanity: Inspirers” Non-fungible token

  • Three transferable NFTs (for your relatives and close friends)

     For holders of the Donate Certificate the smart contract will also include:

  • A Non-fungible token with the corresponding SDR denomination

  • A Collectable Digital Coin: “First TRL investor”

  • An “Our Team – Humanity: social investing” Non-fungible token

     For holders of second series certificates the smart contract will also include:

  • An “Our Team – Humanity” Non-fungible token

Kinds of NFT tokens/certificates:

1) First series certificate

  • “First series certificate” for direct participants

  • “First series certificate” for those who received a link from a direct participant (limited number)

  • “First series certificate” for participants who had an indirect impact on the development of TRL

 

2) Second series certificate: Available to people who have not directly participated in the project but who were given TRL Alliance/Science certificates on Linkedin following the launch of the media campaign, but before the end of the second series certificate distribution was announced.

 

3) First series certificate: special series. Intended for teams whose work and very existence has made the production and development of TRL possible. We have been inspired by the often-incredible things you do. Representatives of the 16 organisations whose open-source data the Analysis Centre and TRL distribution uses will be the first to receive these certificates and NFTs.
