We started Kephi with a vision. After only 6 months we were able to bring it to life, with very long hours of hard work and dedication of our amazing team, and with the unmatched support of a great community.
Even though it was a very difficult year socially due to CoVid, our Roadmap 2021 was followed to the very last item on time. In Q2, after a successful security audit, we launched airdrop campaigns and conducted a private sale. Q3 was the official launch of the KPHI token, with an overwhelming response of the investors both in our IFO and IDOs in both KardiaChain and Binance Smart Chain, followed by listing the token in DEXs and CEXs. Q4 was the highlight of the project, where, after completing the alpha and beta tests, Kephi Gallery was launched for everyone to use. In a very short period of a few weeks, the marketplace has grown to over a thousand NFT minted, several hundreds traded, and supported by a very large community of artists and collectors, particularily fromthe LATAM and SEA regions.
So the end of the year is upon us, and we want to show and comment our Roadmap 2022. Roadmaps do not necessarily include everything that will be done, as new and unexpected things can arise, but it is a wishful beacon that will lead our actions.
Below, you can also find a brief description of each landmark. Landmarks with * involve benefits using KPHI token.
Auctions are an exciting way to buy and sell NFT. The “timed auction” feature in the marketplace will open up a broad spectrum of strategies for content creators.
Kephi aims to be at the forefront of technological developments. Are you an artist that wants to showcase your NFTs in an art gallery or any physical location? Are you a collector that wants to flex your NFT through your house? KephiAR is the mixed reality environment that will allow you to do that without any need to develop or code.
To bring more value to the KPHI token, and besides our play-to-earn buyback programme launched in association with Kardia Info, we will introduce staking opportunities for investors.
A successful marketplace is in constant change and improvement. These few weeks, and with the help and feedback of our community, we have worked on improving the speed and usability of the frontend. And many suggestions have risen, that are being worked on in parallel with improving the existing features.
Team growth and venture acceleration
Growth requires investment in manpower and technology, with a little help from our friends.
The Kephi API is one of the pillars of Kephi Gallery’s incoming developments, as it will provide an easy to use connection to blockchain technology for all other projects. It will act as a building foundation for anyone who wants to host their own NFT galleries, mint or trade NFT without the need to develop the technology from scratch. It will allow the direct integration to games, apps and software of the NFT market, using the KPHI token as a native token for all trades.
Kephi Art will be a premium extension of the marketpace. Here, renowned artists will be able to verify their accounts and have curatorial service to corroborate their works. They will have different benefits compared to ordinary users, as well as greater responsibilities.
Token swap and minting options*
Directly from the marketplace, other token payment and withdrawn options are being prepared, including minting with KPHI token.
We believe that integration with it will open new doors within the blockchain ecosystem, so Kephi Gallery will aim to include Solana, one of the blockchains with the most hype at the moment, and Polygon in the first year.
Marketplace farming & gamification
To bring yet more uses for the KPHI token, marketplace farming and gamification will allow earning KPHI in multiple ways in the marketplace, including buying and selling.
Kephi’s mobile application will allow the users quick management and visualization of NFT.
Artists sometimes need a boost. Kephi Starter will be the crowdfunding option for artists in times of need.
And stay tuned, since many more exciting things will certainly arise on the way!
