Dixel Club Beta Launch (Testnet) - Draw to Earn!
We’re thrilled to announce that we’re beta launching the Dixel Club, our new NFT project, to the Mint Club ecosystem. This will be a completely new way of interacting with digital NFT collectibles.
Dixel Club - https://dixel.club/
What is Dixel Club?
Dixel Club creates non-programmed and user-generated pixel art NFT collectibles where you earn $DIXEL rewards on your PixelFi activities. Compared to the other NFT projects, Dixel Club has no team involved. It's 100% community-made pixel art. The team doesn't even have minting revenue (you know that many NFT project launches are another type of ICO…).
User-generated pixel art NFT collectibles
In Dixel Club, there are no pre-made editions. Users draw their art on the 16 x 16 pixel art canvas to generate the next edition of Dixel Art. The purpose of this NFT platform is to create NFT collectibles where each edition is generated by the community, not by a randomised script.
Draw to Earn from PixelFi
Whenever people generate a new edition of Dixel Art, each pixel price increases by 2% after the overwriting. These price-compounded pixels decide the minting cost of the edition that the user is creating. 10% of the minting cost that the user pays will be distributed to the people who previously overwrote pixels. The other 90% will be reserved in a refundable contract for the owner of this edition and they can get refunded if they burn this NFT later. This price compounding parameter and the reward/reserve to refund split rate may be modified for the main net version.
We call this concept PixelFi. When you create more Dixel Art, your PixelFi contribution ratio may increase, and you will get more DIXEL rewards whenever people mint new editions.
It's the first-ever Draw to Earn platform!
Keep or Burn?
When you mint a new Dixel Art, 90% of your minting cost will be reserved in a refundable contract. What does this mean? This is the baseline of your NFT valuation. When the person who owns this NFT burns it, the 90% DIXEL tokens will be refunded to them.
This mechanism gives some instant liquidity to the NFT, as well as a minimum valuation buffer. Also, this action can increase the rarity of the Dixel Art NFTs.
Test Net Period
We’re running the beta test of Dixel Club via the BSC Test Net from Jan 20 - 28, 2022 (about a week long). Please add the following network setting on your wallet app to have access to the Dixel Club beta version.
Network Name: BSC Testnet
New RPC URL: https://data-seed-prebsc-2-s3.binance.org:8545/
Chain ID: 97
Currency Symbol(Optional): BNB
Block Explorer URL(Optional): https://testnet.bscscan.com/
Once you add the BSC Testnet network, change your wallet network to testnet, and go to the BSC Faucet website as below to receive the test BNB tokens to your wallet.
BSC Test Net Faucet: https://testnet.binance.org/faucet-smart
After you put your wallet address and click the button called “Give me BNB”, you will get 1 test BNB token within a few minutes. Once you complete this process, visit the Dixel Club website (https://dixel.club/) and connect your wallet. And then, you can get the test tokens by clicking the token claim button on the left menu bar.
That’s it! Now you’re ready to create your first Dixel Art by using the DIXEL test tokens (you should have received
500 TEST DIXEL tokens in your wallet). If you want the TEST DIXEL tokens to appear in your wallet, please add this token contract address - 0xE43CF27fEEA17Ea26Cd7bc6abEDe7759B23b6717.

Official Launch and Airdrop Plan
Dixel Club official launch on the BSC main net is scheduled in the beginning of Feb 2022. Once we finalise the test net period, we will set the countdown for the first Dixel Art edition creation.
As we addressed earlier, we also have a plan to launch a community airdrop for DIXEL tokens among the main NFT platform users on BSC as well as Mint Club users. The exact criteria to earn DIXEL tokens will be announced during the official launch.
One more thing - Let’s Stop Discord Labour
The main community channel of the Dixel Club will be the Dixel Club Discord group. We’ve discovered that many NFT projects run some “whitelisting conditions” to boost their Discord group in an artificial way.
There will be NO requirement for you to join the Discord channel. The community airdrop won’t even require you to join the Discord group. We want to maintain the channel ONLY for the members who are interested in being actively involved in the Dixel Club community. We will set some DIXEL token airdrop allocation for the Discord operation, but there will NEVER be a labour-based opportunity to claim, so please DO NOT join the Discord group if you’re not interested in a long-term community commitment.
