Terms and Conditions

Effective Date: 12/07/2024

1. Terms

EAPES is a comprehensive ecosystem that includes various digital assets and services, including but not limited to digital artworks (NFTs) operating on the MultiversX network. This website serves as an interface to present the EAPES project and its offerings. Users are fully responsible for the security and management of their own private MultiversX wallets and for validating all transactions and contracts generated by this website before approval. Furthermore, since the EAPES smart contract operates on the MultiversX network, there is no ability to undo, reverse, or restore any transactions.

This website and its connected services are provided "as is" and "as available" without any kind of warranty. By using this website, you accept sole responsibility for any and all transactions involving EAPES digital assets and services.

2. Ownership

i. Ownership of Individual EAPES NFTs from the EAPES-8f3c1f Collection

Each individual EAPES from that collection is an NFT on the MultiversX blockchain. When you purchase an EAPES NFT from that Collection, you fully own the underlying EAPES artwork. Ownership of the NFT is entirely facilitated by the smart contract and the MultiversX network. At no point can we seize, freeze, or modify the ownership of any EAPES. You can view the collection on xSpotlight here. An EAPES NFT can be purchased here or on any other NFT marketplace.

ii. Personal Use

Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, EAPES grants you a worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, and display the purchased artwork, along with any extensions that you create or use, solely for the following purposes:

iii. Commercial Use

Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, EAPES grants you an unlimited, worldwide license to use, copy, and display the purchased artwork for the purpose of creating derivative works based on the artwork ("Commercial Use"). Examples of such Commercial Use include the use of the artwork to produce and sell merchandise products (such as T-shirts) displaying copies of the artwork. This section does not restrict you from:

3. Reproduction Rights

Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, EAPES grants you a worldwide, royalty-free license to reproduce the purchased artwork for personal and non-commercial purposes. This includes the right to create both digital and physical copies of the artwork for your personal enjoyment and collection.

4. Commercial Reproduction

Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, EAPES grants you an unlimited, worldwide license to reproduce the purchased artwork for commercial purposes. This includes the right to produce and sell derivative products (such as T-shirts) featuring copies of the artwork. Attribution: When reproducing the artwork, you agree to provide appropriate attribution to the original work and acknowledge EAPES as the creator and copyright holder. This attribution must be clearly displayed whenever the reproduced artwork is made available to the public.

5. Royalties

Sales of EAPES NFTs or Island Relics may include royalties paid directly to the original creators and royalties from the EAPES NFT Collection are distributed in accordance with Governance Resolution #3 available at this url: https://app.eapes.com/governance.

Distribution of Royalties for EAPES NFTs (Original Collection):

For each sale of an EAPES NFT, 10% of the total transaction amount is retained and redistributed to the SC Owner Wallet of the original EAPES NFT collection and distributed in percentages for various uses:

6. Utility Token

The EAPES token ($EAPES) is a utility token designed solely for accessing our products and services. It does not have an investment component. The primary use of $EAPES is to access utilities and services within the EAPES ecosystem. Tokens are purchased for these utilities, not for potential financial gain, and EAPES does not primarily depend on the efforts of others to increase the token's value. $EAPES is the utility token at the core of the EAPES ecosystem that powers the circular economy for EAPES Island and real-world applications. A total of 12 million tokens will be issued over a period of 10 years, until 2034.

7. Services via dAPP

EAPES offers various services via the EAPES dAPP. This includes staking any EAPES NFT from the EAPES NFT Collection or any Relic from the Island Relics Collection. This service provides holders the opportunity to accumulate Banana Points (metadata) to encourage participation, and these Banana Points have various utilities. Users can view their accumulated Banana Points in the "MY ACCOUNT" tab via this URL: https://app.eapes.com/

8. Hybrid Governance

The EAPES governance system is hybrid and tied to the ownership of the DAO Wallet. This Treasury Wallet (DAO Wallet) belongs to the holders/owners of EAPES NFTs (Original EAPES-8f3c1f Collection). Each holder of an EAPES NFT holds a share of this treasury, and this treasury is managed and/or used through the Governance voting system. If the user holds an EAPES NFT, they have voting rights on any proposal presented by the EAPES Team.

The EAPES governance voting system operates as follows:
