Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is ARC?

ARC is a members-only community where you’ll get to connect and interact with people who’re naturally curious, open-minded, and passionate about pushing the boundaries of culture. We’re excited to tap on Web3 tech to bring this diverse group of individuals together for co-creation, play, and growth. As a member of the ARC community, you’ll gain access to an exciting range of utilities that will be ready on the get-go the moment you join us.

Why join ARC?

With ARC, you’ll get to be a part of an OG community that is empowered to co-create, play and grow, with genuine utility and exclusive content. ARC is where you can gain access to a diverse network of individuals with Asian roots and form new connections in an open, reciprocal space. Through the ARC app, you’ll be able to connect and engage with community members and enrich yourself through the exchange of perspectives on the platform. As a member, you’ll also get to enjoy a whole range of experiences and perks in collaboration with our partner merchants.

Why a members-only community?

We want to foster a close-knit and diverse community that is unified by the same purpose and values. With this community, we can develop a deeper understanding of the people in it, not only for closer collaborations but to craft utilities that are best suited for them. Most importantly, it helps us create an environment of openness and trust which enables deeper connections and richer conversations.

How can I be prioritised to mint the ARC NFT?

  • To be eligible for minting the ARC NFT, you must ensure that you have minted Pyxis.
  • You’ll then be prioritised to mint the ARC NFT based on your minting date for Pyxis – the earlier you minted, the better (OG ARC members LFG!)
  • You’ll also be prioritised if you have sufficient funds in your wallet that match the price of the ARC NFT (to be announced at a later date).
Is it open for sale to the public?

The ARC NFT will not be available for minting by the public. However, it will be available to trade on the secondary market after mint.

Will there be future collections?

Our community is ever-evolving with plans to co-create with our members. Stay tuned to our Twitter and Instagram @ARCtheCommunity for information about future collections.

What is in our roadmap?

Unlike many other NFT projects with roadmaps that promise utility post-mint, ARC has designed and built utilities for our members that will be ready upon minting.

How will the funds be used?

At ARC, we are always seeking to unleash the potential of the community through what we do. Funds that are raised from the sales of the ARC NFT will be used to support the members in coming together for co-creation, play, and growth.

Is it only available on Ethereum?

For now, the ARC NFT is only available on the Ethereum blockchain.

Can I trade it on the secondary market?

Yes, the ARC NFT will be available to trade on the secondary market.

I didn't manage to mint the ARC NFT this time, what do I do?

If you already hold Pyxis, our free curation and account-bound token, fear not! You’ll be prioritised to mint future ARC NFT collections so follow us on Twitter and IG to be kept updated on news and announcements @ARCtheCommunity.

If you do not hold Pyxis, do submit an application so that you can be approved for whitelisting and be eligible to mint Pyxis for free. Once you hold Pyxis, you’ll also be prioritised to mint future ARC NFT collections.
