Introduction to the nTOPAZ project
It's Artisteem, the global artistic contest platform.
Artisteem launched its beta service on July 16th and grew bigger in the previous 4 months thanks to everyone's support. Beginning in visual art, design, and photography, Artisteem now plans to expand into music, dance, and entertainment and add media types of multi-image and video: this will transform us into a global talent platform where you can pursue various artistic talents.
Through the upcoming renewal, Artisteem will become a TNS (Talented Network Service) that encompasses interests, content feed, Google Translate API, Artist Profile, Direct Sign-up, and social features. For our domain, an Artisteem company "nTOPAZ"[https://www.ntopaz.com] will be used from December 1st, marking a fresh new start. Of course, existing Artisteem users' DB, contents, data and others will be kept safe.
1. What does nTOPAZ mean?
√ nTOPAZ is a start-up venture company that begins with the belief that human natural talent and creative ideas can shine well, work creatively, and find their meaning and identity when they are well recognized for their value.
√ nTOPAZ means n, an infinite number of TOPAZes(characterization of talents who shine like jewels) who interchange horizontally and vertically through a common n(Network)--growing and collaborating together on a social media-based service. The slogan for the service is "Shine your Light!" which means give off your talents to your heart's content, as well as a neutral message to light up (fill in) the darkness.
2. Why do we need nTOPAZ?
√ At the core of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) are content creators and digital artists, but the current labor market and talent ecosystem's issues and problems need improvement: ‘Talent Discovery > Talent Development > Talent Commercialization > Talent Donation/Reproduction’ This virtuous ecosystem is the ultimate solution and why we decided to implement the plan.
3. nTOPAZ’s Business Areas
√ Crowd-sourcing: Global artists' talent arena and a platform where company collaboration can bring out branded content creation and crowdsourcing
√ Talent Commerce: Composed of goods , services, and classes, we plan to expand it into a Design-Edition Marketplace.
√ Crowd-Funding: We plan to expand into creative project funding and STAR Token for Star-level artists, and e-MCN(Artist support), online auction.
4. nTOPAZ Platform & TOPAZ Token Economy
nTOPAZ Platform and the Token Economy will be implemented as follows.
I. Company/organization that want to begin a contest can purchase TOPAZ Tokens and offer contest rewards, or event prizes as a bounty; they can also temporarily delegate TOPAZ Power to directly vote on artworks.
II. Talent Commerce(Goods, Service, Classes): In addition to Payment Gateway, you can e-commerce with TOPAZ Tokens and get TOPAZ as a Bounty from events, community activities which can be used on support, purchase,1:1 inquiries/consulting.
III. Fund creative art projects or STAR Token through Crowdfunding. nTOPAZ Tokens can also be used on joining/bidding in online auctions, and getting payment on Design-Edition Marketplace design running guarantees.
5. nTOPAZ Community Organization
√ 4 Team members (CEO, CTO, Designer, Marketer)
√ 300 Community Supporters
① 10 Coordinators
② 20 Curators(10 Visual-art, 10 Audiovisual-art)
③ 30 Patrons(hiring) - 10,000SP and up
④ 240 Delegators(hiring) - SP Sponsors
6. Roadmap & TOPAZ Tokens Issuance Plan
√ Step 1(Dec. ‘18) : Content contest and brand collaboration crowdsourcing platform
√ Step 2(June ’19) : Talent commerce(Goods, services, classes) commercialization through platform
√ Step 3(Dec. ’20) : Ecosystem expansion into Star Token, Creative Funding, and Design-Edition.
7. SP Delegation Incentive Program
Today we would like to announce the SP Delegation Incentive Program in sync with the opening of nTOPAZ.com . In the past months, Artisteem purchased 250,000 STEEM, with personal fund about 235,000 US Dollars, and has done voting support with full Steem Power, not to mention the weekly contest winners. Except for the recent 50,000 SP support by witness @clayop, we are one of the few dApps that has been upvoting out of personal fund without any SP support from the Steem HQ or outer SP delegation.
Now, Artisteem will be rebranded as nTOPAZ since December and we would like to begin the 1st SP delegation incentive program in order to expand categories, secure a sustainable management base as a Steem dApp, and to continue a full-fledged TOPAZ Token Economy. The growth of a SMT-based dApp is essential to expand the Steem ecosystem.
√ Applied from 12/1.
√ Beneficiary will be 15%(10% nTOPAZ, 5% SP Delegators)
√ SP will be spent on upvoting daily artworks and comments.(Voting Bot planned)
√ Weekly Delegation Reward & Payout in proportion to SP delegation amount
√ Additionally, for 3 months before ’19.1Q Private Sales, weekly TOPAZ Token reward & payout will be given in proportion to monthly SP delegation amount.(one time)
Example: Delegate 1,000SP and get 1,000 TPZ monthly (3 months: 3,000TPZ)
√ Weekly reports will be announced on steemit.com/@ntopaz.

Looking forward to hear from you.
Fantastic, I just now have heard about this - I am delegating 500 sp
i hope this succeed :)
Thank you @cityofstars,
Good luck with your blessings
thank you too
Delegated 500SP. Not much but still something. I don't even care about the reward or your token(no offence). This is the kind of platform that I wanna support for a long time but no one does a great job as you do. I will keep an eye on what you guys have to offer to the art community. Have a great day ahead!
Thank you for convincing that we are not wrong.
We'll keep checking. Please keep an eye on.
We can’t wait to see this great project start, well planned, congrats 🎉
Thank you @siamcat,
I believe your support will be a great help.
1500SP प्रतिनिधि ज्यादा नहीं लेकिन अभी भी कुछ। मुझे इनाम या आपके टोकन (कोई अपराध नहीं) की परवाह नहीं है। यह एक ऐसा मंच है जिसे मैं लंबे समय तक समर्थन देना चाहता हूं लेकिन कोई भी आपके जैसा काम नहीं करता है। मैं कला समुदाय को जो ऑफर करना चाहता हूं उस पर नजर रखूंगा। आगे एक महान दिन है!
We look forward to the arrival of this wonderful platform.
I also look forward to seeing this wonderful platform before long.

Looking good @ntopaz I like where this is going!
Glad you like it!
I can't submit my artwork..
I can't change language of site on english..
Sorry for the inconvenience. Our developer is working hard to fix problems. Thank you.
Hi, when your developer fix this bug? Many users can not upload your artworks
Please come to our Discord server and write a bug report. Thanks
no one helped me at this Discord server 😞
We would like to have updates regarding server down and errors. Please see below for the schedule when the site might not be slow or unavailable. Thank you for your patience.
GReat APP. I have a question. It would be possible to embed Musicoin song directly on Ntopaz? @ntopaz
We have delivered your message to our dev but still need time since we just had our renewal :) Please be patient
Site looks great, but so far it is not iOS friendly. Tried using Safari, even Firefox but to no avail. Reported the bug in Discord, hope those of us using Apple can once again use the site.
You have black listed me for uploading my own photos. all photos are mine unless I say otherwise. You have done me harm. Please undo it
It is exciting the new thing that is coming for the platform, I wish I had many SP to delegate to you because really since I knew this project I loved it.
Thanks for your kind words. You can always select Other amount to delegate.
