"Geronimo, the Apache" is the first collection from the Apaches project. It’s an NFT exclusive collection on Solana inspired by his story and historical data from the Native American tribes.
Geronimo was the embodiment of wisdom, leadership, and resistance. The chief will inspire our NFT holders so they can fight back and use their collective wisdom to predict the future of other friendly top Solana NFT projects.
The system is simple: can we employ the forecasting powers of our collective to determine how the best NFT Solana projects will fare? Can the whole Apaches tribe profit, not only from when projects appreciate, but when projects also depreciate? That’s exactly what the Circle of Wisdom is about. Like any forecast, we can predict that it will grow (bullish), but also we might predict that it actually goes down (bearish). It's up to you and your insight to decide which way you want to support.
But there is an added twist. Our Apaches are steep in wisdom so they might want to apply a multiplier to their prediction, this is what we've called the 'Wisdom Amplifier'. It shows how much confidence you have in your prediction. If the prediction is correct, this factor will multiply your rewards, if it isn't, it will multiply your losses.
It's time to sharpen your senses, keep an eye on other Solana tribes, and show the community how wise are you!
If this reminds some of you of how the futures market works, it’s because that is exactly what we are doing. Apaches is the first futures market for NFT collections floor, powered by our utility token, $MEZCAL.
It’s sadly not always possible to reconstruct centuries-old cultures, but the team made a big effort to be as respectful and as accurate as possible so that the true essence of the Apaches would reach a new generation and inspire them to learn more about their history and culture.
In those places where the extant documentation wasn’t enough, the design and research team draw inspiration from other coetaneous and/or friendly tribes, trying to be true to the culture and the story of Geronimo.
