A DIGITAL PIECE OF HOCKEY HISTORY

DIVE IN

The maritime city of Seattle

CAPTAINS BOX

Kraken Packs

This Captain’s Box, made to resemble fine walnut and salt-marinated silver, holds the secrets to discovering what lies below. Carved and forged by an ancient smith, this artifact boasts handwrought latches, pressure gauges, and pneumatic locks to keep its contents hidden away from the prying eyes of a ship’s company. The legend is both ancient and unpredictable – we write the next chapter of this adventure together and the contents of the Captain’s Box will guide us on the hunt to discover the great Creature down below.

The Captain’s box is an NFT PACK offered as part of the Seattle Kraken inaugural collection. Each Captain’s Box is an animated NFT and once the box is ‘opened’, two more NFTs are revealed.  Each pack you purchase has a different random collectible. Packs include:

Frequently Asked Questions

What about the environmental concerns of NFTs?

The Seattle Kraken and Orange Comet recognize some of the concerns around NFTs and their impact on the environment and have taken steps to mitigate this.

  • The Kraken chose Orange Comet to be their partner in this journey to create commemorative NFTs in celebration of their inaugural season.
    • Orange Comet runs on green servers and builds a carbon-negative solution in the NFT space, including partnering with eco-conscious blockchains.
    • Orange Comet operates on eco-friendly blockchains like Avalanche. Avalanche is one of the only blockchains invited to present at the recent United Nation UK COP26 as a net-zero blockchain. Through using the “proof of stake” model, the entirety of Avalanche’s blockchain transactions uses the energy equivalent of powering 46 U.S households per year— exponentially less than industry average.
    • Furthermore, Orange Comet harnesses renewable wind energy platforms to power their marketplace and consumer facing websites.
    • Avalanche is an industry leader as one of the only net-zero blockchains, marking a new beginning for the entire blockchain industry to shed other environmentally unsustainable models.
  • The Seattle Kraken will donate a portion of proceeds of NFT sales to One Roof Foundation’s environmental justice pillar to support and elevate the voices of the communities disproportionately impacted by climate change.

How are the Orange Comet Kraken NFTs able to have “net zero” impact?

The designation of a “net zero or negative” economic impact for Kraken NFTs is determined by the three primary channels of activity in the Orange Comet and Avalanche blockchain ecosystem.

  1. Blockchain – Avalanche is an eco-friendly blockchain that takes an efficient, net zero-carbon waste approach to validating a global network supporting billions of dollars in value. The entire Avalanche Blockchain uses the power consumption equivalent to 46 U.S. households per year.
  2. Orange Comet Servers – Orange Comet on the Avalanche Blockchain, is committed to running on green servers and building a carbon-negative solution. All Orange Comet user interface websites are housed on renewable energy, wind-farm platforms.
  3. Carbon Neutral with Nori – Avalanche blockchain has partnered with Nori.  Nori’s Carbon Removal Marketplace helps NFT Marketplaces reduce their carbon footprint by integrating carbon removal into their platform. Avalanche took an aggressive approach and purchased 580 tonnes of carbon credits. The carbon removal certificate can be viewed here: https://tinyurl.com/5afhbbww

About NFTs

WHAT’S AN NFT?

NFTs (or “non-fungible tokens”) are special types of digital collectibles that can be purchased, collected, and traded through an online NFT marketplace. Types of NFTs are digital images, collectibles (such as trading cards, autographs, dolls, etc.), sound and video clips, 3D art or other digital files that represent special properties. By minting (aka creating) these digital NFTs on the Orange Comet blockchain (See ABOUT OUR BLOCKCHAIN below), it guarantees that the NFT or digital collectible that you are purchasing, whether directly from us or in the exchange marketplace, is a genuine and officially licensed NFT and not a “fan made” piece that you may see on other sites.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY NFT ONCE I RECEIVE IT?

Once an NFT is created, it starts its life on the blockchain, where a fan or collector can purchase it and where it can be subsequently exchanged, traded or held by collectors like any other rare artifact. Your NFT will be placed into your Orange Comet Marketplace account and you now have recorded ownership of that NFT. Now is your time to show it off. You’ll also be able to display your NFT to your friends and link it to your favorite social media network for bragging rights on your collection of cool NFTs. In January 2022, you will be able to list your NFT for sale on our exchange and be able to purchase more NFTs from other sellers.

WHERE WILL MY NFT BE STORED?

When you create an Orange Comet NFT Account we set up an account for you known as a “custodial wallet.” This is the most common type of wallet offered by many different companies producing NFTs for blockchains. Think of the wallet as a digital account used to store your Orange Comet NFTs. You have a digital wallet on your smartphone that holds pieces of electronic digital information; an NFT Digital wallet holds NFTs which are digital collectibles. Since it’s a custodial wallet, we create and manage it for you but you always have final say on what you want to do with your NFTs (buy, sell or trade them on the Orange Comet platform.)

About Our Blockchain

WHAT IS A BLOCKCHAIN?

A Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system. A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain. Your Orange Comet NFT ownership is recorded on the Avalanche Blockchain as an ERC-721 or ERC-1155 NFT.

WHAT IS ERC-721/1155?

ERC stands for Ethereum Request for Comment. It means that the NFT is coded for the Ethereum Blockchain and the number beside it refers to the specific way the token is encoded. The most common tokens on the Ethereum Blockchain are ERC-721 or ERC-1155 and each version of the code that creates them allows the NFT to do certain things.

WHAT IS THE AVALANCHE BLOCKCHAIN?

Avalanche is the fastest smart contract Ethereum based platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol. Avalanche is leading the blockchain world into the net-zero age, marking a new beginning for the entire blockchain space to shed the environmentally unsustainable model of Proof of Work systems. The Avalanche Blockchain is Net Zero Carbon emissions and was invited to participate in the recent United Nations UKCOP26 meeting where they discussed the importance of being a Net Zero blockchain.  In 2021 Avalanche commissioned an independent study by the Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute  to determine the chain’s environmental impact. The study which will come out in January 2022 concluded that the entirety of the Avalanche blockchain uses approximately 46 U.S. households worth of carbon–compared to Ethereum which uses 1.63M households and Bitcoin which uses 8.46M households worth of carbon.

I’VE HEARD RUMORS THAT NFTS USE UP TOO MUCH ELECTRICITY AND EMIT A LOT OF CARBON INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF THE ORANGE COMET NFT COLLECTION?

Orange Comet feels that it is essential that all blockchain transactions become NET-ZERO and the easiest way of doing this is platform by platform rather than individual offsetting. All Orange Comet front end servers are renewable energy powered by wind farms. Our Partnership with the Avalanche Blockchain, which is a Net Zero blockchain, allows Orange Comet to fulfill its commitment to running on green servers and building a carbon-negative solution for NFT collecting. 🌿
