What do I do with my pNFT?

You are, of course, welcome to hold onto it and keep it in your NFT collection.  However, if you want to unlock the full power of these NFTs, you can put them up for sale on the open market.  A percentage of each and every sale will be sent directly back to StreetCode forever!

What is your royalty percentage? Why?

Most NFT royalties are set somewhere between 5-10%, but our pNFT royalty is set to 90%.  This means that 90% of the sale price will automatically be sent right back to StreetCode.  Not only does this provide greater benefit to our organization, but it allows the buyer to write off 90% of the purchase price (instead of the standard 5-10%).  As the seller, you will receive 10% of the sale minus any platform fees – taxed as ordinary income.  For example, if your pNFT sells for $10,000, StreetCode will instantly receive $9,000 (before fees), and you will receive $1,000 (before fees).

Which blockchain are you using to mint the pNFTs?

For maximum transferability, we’re using the Ethereum blockchain.

How do I put my pNFT up for sale?
