What is ecoVillage Coin, what makes it different, the investment model, Is now the best time to buy?

in #ecotrain3 months ago (edited)


The ecoVillage coin has been available on Steem-engine for a few weeks now! Despite it looking a lot like most of the other coins listed, it is in fact quite different! Now the ecoVillage vision is maturing I am ready to explain what this coin is, and why it is actually an investment model rather than a token that is awarded via curating. We are not a Tribe on Steem, but we are a tribe of people who are working hard to manifest a new paradigm called ecoVillage and an ultra-sustainable building and living model.

The economics of the ecoVillage coin are very different to Steem, and Tribe tokens in general. ecoVillage coin has a limited supply of 1,000,000 Coins. We will never make more, and you can not get them for free. You have to buy them from ecoVillage, either by sending me STEEM or FIAT or buying via steem-engine. There is no inflation of ecoVillage coin supply, and as the coin is bought up, the supply will decrease and put pressure on the price to increase. Since most investors are buying to gain a return on investment, they are also going to sell at higher prices on the open market.

The initial offering of the first 10,000 tokens is at 4 Steem (apx $0.60) per token. Once the first 10,000 tokens are sold the price per token will increase to $0.80 until we sell 100,000 tokens. After that point the final tokens will be sold at $1.00 per token, after which time the market will decide the price. There will be a continued buy back of tokens from ecoVillage from profits raised from events, and from the sale of goods and services produced by the community. This buy back will give a guaranteed return to investors, as we assure demand and will pay market prices. The risk factors are low and are discussed below.

What Are You Supporting?

When you buy ecoVillage coin you are not only investing in our future, and our success, you are also supporting the creation of a new paradigm project and community that is focused on solving the many problems that systems centralized of power and money have brought us. The ecoVillage approach is ultra- decentralized, and having our own currency is an important part of this. ecoVillage will demonstrate that it is possible to live in complete harmony with our environment, our neighbours, and our world, and achieve great abundance and freedom in small communities that thrive and are completely off-grid and self sufficient.

We have developed a model based on natural giving, and earthship biotecture that can deliver a lifetime of comfort with no bills and no costs to purchase land. Thanks to @orlev we have secured the land in Portugal, and so we have been able to initiate this project at almost no cost. We are in the process of assembling a powerful team of experienced and passionate people who are completely on board with this vision, and ready to donate their time and their lives to the ecoVillages project.

The Healing Dance Festival Fundraiser

At this early stage, we are working on a fundraiser event to help us to get the ecoVillage project off the ground! We need your support to help us create an amazing event, that can then be held regularly to help us raise more funds for the build process. We are already offering land for free, labour and skilled help at no cost, but we also want to subsidize the entire build as far as possible so that we can make it as low cost as possible for anyone who wishes to join us. Our aim is to be able to provide self sufficient earthship homes for far less than $50,000USD, including land and a lifetime without bills or heating costs.

Once the community is established we will produce various goods and services. Events such as the Healing Dance Festival are ones that can help the entire project gain a lot of traction, as well as income. These events would bring the community together, and provide a funnel through which most if not all of our skills and produce can be sold to friends and guests who attend. The ecoVillage will hold 50% of the profits from all such events and use these profits to buy back ecoVillage coin from investors on an on going basis. As the ecoVillage expands, so do the profits and diversity of our offerings.

There are many more acres of land around our location in Portugal, and so expansion is very convenient and easy to do. The ecoVillage model will also expand around other locations in Portugal and around the world. Those who wish to join us will get our support and help us spread this new paradigm model far and wide.

Now is the best time to buy because the price is so low. This low price does also reflect the risk factor, and right now you are an early adopters in this vision. We still have a LOT of work to do, but we are all completely determined to achieve our goals. Nevertheless, we can not be sure that everything with align and work out. The risk factor is almost exclusively on us completing our first event rather than the whole ecoVillage! Also, the overall risk is lower now since we have land secured, and we have a very achievable initial goal. Profits from The Dance Festival will be used to buy back ecoVillage coin from you in the short term at a price that the market determines.

The longer you wait, the higher the gains should be! Since we have set up all the market forces to push the price ever higher, you can expect the price to only go up. Since no one gets these tokens for free, you can not earn them via posting, they have more value. People who buy them want to sell them for more than they bought them for, and ecoVillage will buy back for more as soon as we finish our first event, hopefully in mid-2020. Essentially we are investing in ourselves by selling you ecoVillage coin!

Disrupting the "Cost of Living" Industry










I love this project, @eco-alex!
How can I purchase $ECO via bank transfer?


oh thats great! Are you in India?

No, I'm in Italy and I would like to convert some euro...

ok ill DM you on discord

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for the support!

THANK you dave!! I have sent 5 ECO to you, it is in your wallet! <3

Love that this vision is moving forward!
I agree that it is important for the community to have it's own currency/coin and I whole-heartedly support the ECO coin. Sending you some STEEM @eco-alex to buy more ECO!
Thanks for making this process easier!

THANK you for the support and investment in ecoVillage! It means a lot, and happy you agree and understand what we are doing.. much love, your eco coins are in your wallet!

I have just initiated the power down and will send you steem one week from now.

Really love what you are doing Alex and look forward to being a part of it, one way or another!

ooh i have a question MAYBE you can answer.. Do you know of a place / website where i can get decent video clips royalty free etc? Im working on a Promo video both for ecovillages and the Healing Dance Festival, but as of yet havent got decent source ..

Sorry to say I don't know of a decent free source for stock footage. In the past I used https://videohive.net/category/stock-footage and paid around $15 per month for a year, giving me unlimited downloads. Perhaps not ideal for your current purpose.

Tell me what kind of footage you are looking for? There is a chance I may have something suitable already.

ok.. that already looks intersting!
What im trying to do is a remake of a rough cut for the Healing Dance Festival i made on 3speak..


I used clips of people dancing and looking blissful, it was perfect really but i lifted it from two other sources..(with their logos) so i cant really use it.. basically i want to remake it to ecoVillage ..

While I am thinking about it I do have membership with Epidemic Sound, a music library which has some great stuff.

I will take a look at your film later today when I'm not looking after kids ;)

Fantastic news, very happy to hear it!

Great news! Thanks for the support, an Di look forward to you being a part of it too!

My pleasure brother. If ever there was a worthy cause to put some money into, this must surely be it!

I enjoyed your last vid ;)

I just bought my first ECO coin! This is exactly the type of community I like to support, I'm glad to participate. Best wishes from America! :)

thats Awesome! thanks for letting me know! hold on to that baby for a bit l-) thanks for the support!

I love that you dont dole this coin out willy-nilly like everyone else, are side-stepping the inflation issue that's killing most everyone else & that it's based on a well-thought-through value proposition that has roots in something that is changing the world. The Dance Festival sounds AWESOME! Great idea!! 25 steem sent & more coming tomorrow when my rewards arrive as liquid steem.

SO glad you like the healing dance festival idea! im literally penning a letter out now to Elon Musk.. My MISSION is to get a powerwall from him to run the event! ;-) How cool would that be!

Thank you so much for the support!!

Mentally committed myself to EVERYDAY POSTING again so I can earn the steem to help power an important vision.

What should I do with the ECO coins I have in steemengine? There is no option to stake them like the other coins & Im not sure what to do next with them, if anything? Or do they just sit in steemengine forever?

They are there in your wallet.. you can best HODL them until we finish the event. It is a long term investment, but the first buy back might be in mid 2020 after this event. When that happens you will suddenly see buy orders for higher amounts appear, at which time you can sell or wait until the price goes up some more.

There is no staking so you can sell at any time.. We might build that in but are still forming a few details!

Sounds "Very Solid" to me!
The coins when purchased will appear in my "Steem" wallet?
Thanks Again!
(*Love What Your Doing!)

thanks! glad you think so!!! Yes the coins appear both on Steempeak.com and also on steem-engine.

My interests are redirected to agriculture and sustainably. I think I need the Eco coins. Meanwhile, is there a tribe?

Posted using Partiko Android

There is no tribe because that is a different thing on Steem. but we ARE a tribe in the Literal sense ;=)

I was just going to say, we are indeed a tribe in the most literal sense.. 😁

I'm so glad to hear of your redirection. My life is steered in this direction as well. If you have any questions about the sustainability and practicality of the ecoVillage you're more than welcome to ask. Here, discord, or best on the community network.

I'm delighted to watch this great project rise. Humbly, I sent 5 Steem to buy Ecovillage coins. Afterwards, I will continue to invest a little more to support the cause. Greetings and much love, Family! A kiss, @eco-alex!

thank you so much! your ecoVIllage coins are in your wallet.. much love!

Yes, finally got sone ecoVillage coins!!!! Thanks for putting this together. I'm going to have to take example on the ecoVillage model... I'm feeling a little lost right now as I cannot find the community members to take the leap on our property.

I do need to be more proactively looking for it too!

Anyway, bought some coins an thanks again for the inspiration. See you in Portugal when I can make it 😁!

i saw! THank you for the investment and support! Your 35 ecoVillage coins are already sitting pretty in your wallet!

I look VERY forward to seeing you in Portugal one day!
