FAQ

What is the firefly shire?

The Firefly Shire is a themed eco-retreat experience and intentional community building it’s first location in Costa Rica.

The Shire will serve as a retreat and event space, education hub, and incubator for resilient building practices, permaculture, and living space technologies.

In balance with nature, we’ll sustain life in an eco-friendly way, be off-grid, and use recycled materials whenever possible.

We’ll be a real-life crypto village! The Firefly Shire will accept bookings with $ADA, and our NFT collectibles will grant special perks once we open. Check out our first collection, Lord of the Coins!

WHY AN EARTH-SHELTERED VILLAGE?

While structures at the Firefly Shire will take advantage of various building techniques, we love earth-sheltered buildings the most!

Earth-sheltered homes are built into the ground or up against a hill, and because of their design take advantage of natural insulation. They’re eco-friendly and offer additional protection against fires, storms, or other extreme weather events while using less energy than traditional structures.

We hope to someday expand to similar projects around the world!

WHAT IS THE LORD OF THE COINS COLLECTION?

Lord of the Coins is a collection of generative fantasy creature NFTs battling on the Cardano blockchain. 3 Series, each with a set of rare creatures and coins from the Lord of the Coins universe. Learn more about the collection here!

WEN NFT?

Make sure to join our Discord and follow us on Twitter to keep an eye out for giveaways and NFT drops!

WHICH WALLET SHOULD YOU USE?

ONLY use a Cardano wallet such as Eternl, Nami, Daedalus, Yoroi,AdaLite etc.

DO NOT use an exchange wallet to purchase Lord of the Coins NFT collectibles. If you use an exchange wallet like Coinbase or Binance, you will NOT receive the NFT because those wallets are not supported.

WHAT IS OUR BUILD TIMELINE?

Our seasonal campground is set to open this year. Check out our roadmap in progress.

We will make announcements as we build out the village, release plans, and create new collections! We want to bring the community along as we build a magical place IRL! It’ll be epic to throw an opening party, will you be there?

WHY CARDANO?

We chose to launch our project on the Cardano blockchain for many reasons, the biggest being Cardano’s proof of stake (PoS) consensus mechanism and liquid staking model. Not only does it avoid the massive energy use and hardware pollution caused by mining for other cryptocurrencies, but you earn rewards, and your $ADA is never locked up. The blockchain is also decentralized and highly secure.

We also liked that the Cardano Foundation is actively working towards sustainability and advancing nature-based solutions to combat climate change. (Check out the Cardano forest!) There are now $ADA eco staking pools powered by renewable energy, giving back and helping make Cardano greener.

We are open to partnerships to expand into other energy-efficient blockchains!
