Ethical Screening and Community Guidelines

COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

To develop a new support system for digital artists, collectors and curators, everyone in the ecosystem must have mutual respect among themselves. We want to set a few key expectations and rules for everyone while providing an unprecedented level of cultural openness. By embodying these ideals and working with us, we can create a welcoming community that empowers both collectors and creators alike.
Funoon along with Amanah Advisor have developed an ethical-screening criteria. The Funoon Marketplace seeks to host NFTs which add value to people’s lives and bring benefit, such as:
  1. Educational content
  2. Motivational content
  3. Inspirational content
  4. Spiritual content
  5. Cultural content

FOR THE COMMUNITY

For anything truly new to be introduced, we must lead by the values of kindness and inclusivity. In building a community that is accepting of all; displaying respect and care for one another is crucial.
To gain a deeper understanding of our community values and ideals, please join the Funoon Discord and Telegram channels. In these spaces, you’ll find creators and collectors conversing about the creative process. Furthermore, we leverage social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter to support one another and share content to the world.

FOR CREATORS

Artists, content creators, photographers and other digital creatives are at the centre of everything we do. As a result, they are the ones to determine the authenticity of work uploaded to Funoon. Verified creators will have the equivalent of an Instagram ‘blue tick’. It is vitally important to build trust in a community in order to sustain it over time.
Funoon allows you to mint and sell NFTs in the following ways:
All of your rights to the original work remain with you, including the copyrights and trademarks.
Using your piece, you can replicate it, distribute it, exhibit it, and make derivative works.
As a creator, you are not allowed to:
Uploading someone else's work that is protected by copyright or otherwise proprietary is not allowed.
NFTs representing the same piece cannot be created multiple times, unless offered as a multi-token collection (BEP-1155 token standard). However, pieces from a series that relate to each other are acceptable.

FOR COLLECTORS

NFT collectors are providing patronage to the arts (and also charities, in the case of Funoon NFT collectors), in a way that provides sustainable revenue sources for digital creatives.
On Funoon, you can showcase/use your NFT in the following ways:
Trade the NFT token that is represented on the blockchain
Display/Share the NFT token in a physical/virtual manner
Make use of any utilities offered by the NFT token (e.g. access to unlocked content; access to specific virtual/in-person events; discounts of transaction fees; airdrops of related NFTs by the NFT creator)
Collectors are not allowed to:
Claim rights to ownership, copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property relating to the NFT token
Make commercial use of the artwork.
Modify the artwork.
Share NFT content in an intolerant, cruel, or hateful context.
Create additional NFT representations of the same artwork.
