Pozzles of the Pozzleverse
Pozzles are the unique product of the Pozzle economy.
They are hexagon-shaped ‘land parcel’ NFTs with varying ‘impact-traits’ that cover the surfaces of a Pozzle Planet. Each Pozzle provides the planet unique attributes and ‘destination experiences’ that users can travel to. People can visit, trade or earn different Pozzles depending on what activities are in demand and what areas of impact you care about.
The Pozzleverse: Pozzle Planets grow and are filled with 'Pozzles'
A Pozzle is created and added to a Pozzle Planet in two ways:
  1. 1.
    The community generates Pozzles: Each time a player in the Pozzle Planet mobile-app travels to a Pozzle Planet and joins an activity there via video, a Pozzle is added to that Pozzle Planet. Joining activities on Pozzle Planets is like ‘Pozzle-making’ where adding a video of you doing the activity is the same as adding your piece to the Pozzle Planet.
  2. 2.
    The mobile-app generates the Pozzles, and then they are assigned to the user’s Wallets as NFTs when the Pozzle Planet is completed. The Treasury mints new Pozzles: When new value is created via the Treasury, new Pozzles are minted in order to distribute this value to stakeholders. The Pozzle Protocol adds Pozzles to the Treasury Planet, which is the source of IPY Impact-Yields in the Pozzleverse (Refer Section X)
As Pozzle Planets grow and fill with Pozzles, they will evolve in terms of their predominant impact-attributes and categories, for example along the lines of ‘Clean the Oceans Planet’, ‘Green Energy Planet’, ‘Recycling Queens Planet’, and so on. This brings opportunity for IRL companies and organisations, as well as Protocols to generate Pozzle Planets with topics that relate most to them.

How are Pozzles valuable?

Upon minting, each Pozzle is embedded with a set of impact-tokens that have been acquired and passed on to them from the Pozzle Treasury, giving Pozzles a ‘minimum asset value’ as well as measurable attributes of environmental and social impact.
Pozzles are also shares in the Pozzle Treasury. The Pozzle Treasury’s primary growth comes from revenues and using its assets to create new income streams. As the Treasury grows the profits & proceeds are distributed to all Pozzle holders in the form of compounding impact-yields ‘IPY’, where you will earn more and more Pozzles, the longer you stake them. In this light, it is the ‘Pozzles’ that are the token that hold ownership fractions of the Pozzle Treasury. On the other hand, $POZ is the currency that gives you access to earning these Pozzles. More on $POZ coming up.

What do I get for staking Pozzles?

Pozzle Planet can be seen as similar to other NFT games where you can stake the NFTs. But it’s in Pozzle Planet’s impact-yields ‘IPY’ where we take an innovative step forward from the adverse dilution problems that come with many of today’s typical staking APY models. Instead, the Pozzle Protocol automatically manages the payout of IPY to stakers to ensure there is no dilution and that value is always additive.
The IPY rate is automatically set ‘ground-up’ by the Pozzle Protocol based on the new-value creation of the Treasury. Each new Pozzle created to pay IPY is only minted when there is new value creation coming into the Treasury from fees and revenue. That way there is no dilution of existing Pozzle holders.
Each new Pozzle has a ‘minimum asset value’ based on a set of impact-tokens nested in it upon minting, where the value of a new Pozzle minted should never be lower than the value of the previous Pozzle minted. This means that the value of the next minted Pozzle will always be equal or higher than the last Pozzle. At the same time this creates an IPY minting queue to ensure the value threshold can be met for new Pozzles, which heavily incentivises the Treasury to maximise its value-creation to support an accelerated growth of the Pozzleverse.

How is impact generated by Pozzles?

Each new Pozzle’s basket of impact-tokens gives it unique impact-attributes for investors looking to target certain sectors or categories for environmental and social impact.
To supply the impact-token sets for Pozzles, the Pozzle Treasury continuously acquires qualified impact-tokens from the market, as well as through limited bonding and DAO2DAO token swaps. The Pozzle Protocol therefore creates a powerful source of demand for impact-tokens, as well as adding value by transferring them into vehicles (Pozzles) that carry an overall higher value & desirability, sparking an exciting new market for impact-tokens.
Impact-tokens are curated and qualified with the objective of providing sustainable value (environmental, social and financial) with minimum short term volatility as well as anticipated steady price growth over the long term.

What are Impact Tokens?

Impact tokens are a blockchain based solution for impact-investing and can represent quantified units of an impact that can be traded and potentially be used as offsets or contributions to an organisations’ ESG or CSR requirements, as well as form a quantifiable basis for investment decisions based on environmental and social footprint.
“Impact tokens contribute to the UN SDGs and often represent a specific impact in the form of a measurement metric such as number of vaccinations, tonnes of carbon dioxide or number of children attending school. These tokens are registered on a blockchain and can be tracked along a supply chain. They offer proof that a positive impact has been delivered, which can then be attributed to a particular activity or investment.” -
A well known example is the BCT ‘Base Carbon Tonne’ token from Toucan Protocol, which is a fungible carbon token backed by a 1:1 verifiable link to carbon credits in a supported registry.
Other examples exist and more are emerging fast, and Pozzle Planet will utilise a vast range of impact tokens to create a myriad of environmental & social impact-attributes across all the Pozzles in the Pozzleverse.

How do we qualify and curate Impact-Tokens?

Pozzle Planet works with a 100% transparent approach to selection & qualification of impact tokens, and publishes evaluations publicly in our Docs.
A key component of impact tokenization is the reliable measurement of impact. Pozzle Planet recognises this and seeks to work with credible tokens in this regard.
Primary focus areas of impact-token qualification:
  1. 1.
    Impact measurement & credibility
    • Does the token reference a real-life verifiable unit of impact?
    • Confidence in the impact measurement
  2. 2.
    Price journey & value proposition
    • Degree of speculative elements in the token & price volatility
    • Long term sustainability of the token and price-growth projection
  3. 3.
    Reliability & compatibility with Pozzle Protocol
    • Accessibility (supply & volume) of the token for ongoing acquisition
    • Adds to the Pozzle value-stack
Of course, what makes impact tokens highly interesting & relevant beyond their impact unit is their tradability, they carry a price, as well as being typically inherent with a projected value-growth based on increased demand for provable impact across a whole multitude of areas that relates to reversing the negative trajectories of the SDGs.
In terms of compatibility to the Pozzle Protocol, is also important that the design of the impact-token can provide value to the Pozzle it becomes embedded in, and this may come in value-forms such as that the impact unit performs as an offset or a credit or the impact unit can be converted into a credit that would have tradable value.

'PPCs' Planet POZitive Credits

To facilitate diversity in impact-tokens as well as provide for Pozzle attributes to range across the full spectrum of sustainable development, Pozzle Planet will create the first Token Friends bridge for ´PPC´ Planet-POZitive Credits.
PPCs were originally envisioned as ‘POZitivity units’ being a way to generalise various units of impact, whether it be carbon tonnes, kgs of recycling, litres of water saved, or $funds directed to social impact-organisations.
These POZitivity units are a way to measure the impact-progress of the Pozzleverse with more granularity than counting Pozzle NFT creation, since the impact-characteristics of each Pozzle token varies.
It makes sense to create a Planet Pozitive Credit to provide a way to represent positive impact that can come in many different forms.
An example of the PPC in use in Pozzle Planet would be when a series of Pozzles are being minted with a portion of value given to the Angel protocol, which is a protocol enabling a one-off donation which generates yield and that yield is then donated on and ongoing basis to certain charities. The Pozzle needs a way to represent that the value has been ‘given away’ to the Angel Protocol, so the Planet Pozitive Credit will stay nested in the Pozzle to forever reflect the donation amount with yield position, that was given by its creation.
By creating a PPC bridge for impact-focused protocols, Pozzle Planet will expand the market for incentivizing behaviours promoting sustainability, which is highly aligned with growing mainstream demand for ‘planet-POZitivity’ from organisations and individuals alike.

How can I get Pozzles?

There are 3 ways to build up your collection of Pozzles:
  1. 1.
    Earn Pozzles by participating in the mobile game-app
  2. 2.
    Buy Pozzles with $POZ in the Pozzle Marketplace
  3. 3.
    Stake $POZ which gradually converts to Pozzles over time
The more Pozzles you have, the higher your IPY rewards and hence the higher your compounding impact, as there are differentiated IPY tiers based on your existing Pozzle holdings.
Pozzle Planet makes investing and getting exposure to impact-tokens fun and easy, and since the Pozzles are displayed all across the Pozzleverse, your impact is visible, making it even more naturally competitive.

What are the prospects for trading Pozzles?

This visual landscape of assets across the Pozzleverse makes the trading of Pozzles highly interesting, especially as holdings are linked to further utility in the Pozzleverse as it evolves.
The Pozzle marketplace is not only creating a new market for impact-investing, but it is also an in-game marketplace for everyday people (which can be likened to Axie Infinity), where participants buy & sell Pozzle NFTs to achieve certain utilities in the Pozzleverse, as well as create & collect their own Pozzle bundles with certain aesthetics & traits.
This tradability is a powerful value-add to the price-stack potential of the Pozzle NFTs.
The Pozzle itself carries a value-stack (Treasury dividends, in-game utility, desirability, metaverse land holdings, environmental offset or social impact credits etc.) which gives price potential over and above its minimum asset value based on impact-token sets, which may enable you to obtain a higher return on investment by trading Pozzle bundles vs. otherwise trading the individual impact tokens on their own.
The Pozzle value-stack:
  1. 1.
    Impact attributes (branding, impact investing, offset, ESG etc.)
  2. 2.
    Asset value growth IPY & dividends from the Pozzle Treasury
  3. 3.
    Aesthetics & desirability
  4. 4.
    Strategic land positions in the Pozzleverse
  5. 5.
    Trading premiums based on supply/demand
If you want to get Pozzles, you’ll first need to start with $POZ.
