Can you be more specific on the Project APIS idea?2018-11-17T11:06:04+00:00

Project idea : to combine the necessities of taking care of nature with the utilities (represented by shares offered by nature, in raw materials) through an Bee Families Adoption Plan. Each Bee Hive can be represented as a living miner that will provide shares for life, also , will multiply their numbers, yearly (providing, exponential shares too). Each APIS Year, our team propose to open a new colony of bee families, to be adopted.

How can I participate to the project?2018-11-17T11:18:17+00:00

Please see the steps below:
1: You will need to have a Waves Wallet . You can download yours here: https://wavesplatform.com/
2: You will need to have your Waves Wallet funded with either Waves or Bitcoin .
3: We are live on DEX and Folex.io : Confirm Apis Token asset ID matches: EvN8cvuGKC2t1PA8ZEsgJth3paenSP4UAd8Z6K14z2P4 – to avoid any possible fake coins by the same name appearing on the DEX.
5: Place your BUY order.

Can you give me a description of your Apis Project?2018-11-17T11:21:53+00:00

So… the really short plan would be something like this:
In order for our generation to actually save the planet
– one of the things we MUST do is Adopt some bee families
– then we need to build a perfect place for them to live
– then we need to manage them very qualitatively(food, air, water, everything they need has to be high quality)
– then we can breed them more, and take them anywhere the land need natural organic pollination
– we will be able to remotely ‘play with them’, name them, organize them and also watch them LIVE on CCTV
– after all this, I am confident that the bees will offer us some quality products in return, as a gift for taking care of them
– products that we will share together with community and also we’ll R&D and develop more high quality organic/natural products on our APIS Eco-Lab
APIS: a community project, a shop, an eco-lab.
Each adopter will be part of our community, our goals are the same, we will construct together this business.

► Access our products.
► Contract an adoption plan.
► Lock in your adoption plan.

►Participate at different architectures of multiplies bee families.
► Manage your bee families.
► Start taking care your adopted bee families.

What are the functionalities of Treasury ?2018-11-17T11:24:35+00:00

Treasury concept: APIS Team will define an long term warehouse where will be deposited, after each harvesting season, a percent of remained honey (after covering the Project costs/necessities). Because honey is a product that is non-perishable, we will be able to store this honey for long period of time (raw honey keep his properties over the years if was stored properly). The scope of this cold storage is to cover the APIS Token liquidity in honey (if, in the first years, each APIS Token will be covered with some grams of honey, in time, this quantity will grow, comparing with the liquidity/total supply) . The APIS Token that are locked through a smart contract, also involved in an adoption plan will not count (because are not in circulation).

What is the price for a hive?2018-11-17T11:25:56+00:00

30.000 APIS Token – Alpha Colony Adoption.

20.000 APIS Token – Beta Colony Adoption.

10.000 APIS Token – Gamma Colony Adoption.

What types of accounts exists?2018-11-17T11:27:50+00:00

Basic Account – 1-9 Bee Hives adopted;

Premium Account – 10-49 Bee Hives adopted;

Business Account – over 50 Hives adopted (please see Whitepaper for more details).

What do you share through your Project?2018-11-17T11:29:04+00:00

Depending of the adoption plan, for example for Basic Account, 1 kg honey per month (1 kg / month / hive – example: 3 hives = 3 kg / month). You can find more details on the whitepaper about every account.

When are open the colony registration for adoption?2018-11-17T11:30:02+00:00

Alpha Colony : started October 2018. Adoption process open till 25.12.2018.

Beta Colony : Registration starts: Spring 2019. Adoption process open till 25.12.2019.

Gamma Colony : Adoption registration process starts: Spring 2020. Adoption process ends: 25.12.2020.

How the adoption will work?2018-11-17T11:31:20+00:00

When you adopt a bee family, you will have to lock your tokens and link your hive into your platform account (app.apismellifera.io) .

Hive adoption locking process :

– Lock APIS Token. Each 30k APIS Token sent to APIS Locking Wallet (3PJmtyz5zB1rzbFvKpjY7ssvDqqcjd15UYx) will be an adoption request; each APIS Mellifera Token (ID Token: 2qQG5SV3F25oMynbyctS8PzBtpVUSqtvxPYLeHbVkxKA) received instead of 30k APIS Token locked will be a confirmation of hive adoption.

– Register on Platform. Each hive will need to be linked with his adopter, please register at: app.apismellifera.io and update your wallet (linking the hives) and your Telegram ID ( a method to maintain the connection between APIS Team and Adopter).

If I adopt one hive, you will ship a monthly dose of honey to me?2018-11-17T11:32:56+00:00

We will send twice time / year, in April and August , covering entire period of the APIS Year.

How can adoptive parents invest resources in this project? Can we use FIAT?2018-11-17T11:35:01+00:00

Please see details below, and check Whitepaper for more details:
“*Disclamer at the end of the Whitepaper:
All USD prices shown in this whitepaper are for price orientation only. We only work with cryptocurrency, therefore any FIAT will be converted at exchange rate from the platform where it can be purchased, Waves Dex and Folex.io.”

Can you adopt a new hive at any time?2018-11-17T11:36:10+00:00

No, this will define our adopters: as we said in  the whitepaper, the project has physical limitations, but, each year we will offer a modality to access our future products through and adoption plan or , in a future, a shares rental plan.

Will the bees ever be transported to fields for pollination or will they always remain in the two areas that you have highlighted?2018-11-17T11:37:32+00:00

To offer best conditions for our adopters, we will create pastoral clusters, increasing the honey quantity.

How long does one hive live?2018-11-17T11:38:50+00:00

Normally, they are naturally replacing the population from period to period. One hive can live forever if they are cared (especially in winter season). Each bee has a life cycle (passing through each bee work). After each phase of architectural development, we will change our Queens, to protect the future of the hive. We will post some short articles, about bees life, because are really special hive organisation, queens battles, dancing behavior etc. A high risk to loose bee families is in harvesting period, when the families can attack each other (the bees with harvested hive want to fill asap their food reserves, and they are attacking another hive that is full with honey, and, if no beekeeper there, can be bad).

How many bees does an hive usually have?2018-11-17T11:39:47+00:00

In winter about 20k, in summer : 60k-80k and just one queen.

When is the harvesting season?2018-11-17T11:40:58+00:00

Bee families production season starts in March and ends up in July/August. Types of honey / season : Rape, Acacia (1,2,3) , Linden, Polyfloral and Sun Flower (harvesting order).

How can I adopt the hives if I have APIS token?2018-11-17T11:42:08+00:00
Will the shop be for APIS token exclusive? Are the information from the APIS Shop updated?2018-11-17T11:46:57+00:00

All products can be exchanged only with APIS token. In a short time we will present a new version of APIS products in the platform. For the moment the prices are not updated. The products there are just for information, to take a look at some products.

How much is the price to customize a hive?2018-11-17T11:47:37+00:00

We will have some different tuning kits (design ones), with fix price (a basic price in APIS) , and, if you want something special, the price is starting from the basic one and can go up. We will talk with our artist, to establish the final price for his work.

Why is APIS project so important?2018-11-17T11:48:25+00:00

A:(from one of our supporters/adopters) I see it like this: I could just buy the token, sit back and wait for you to do all the stuff … But I also could invest a little time and effort to push this project a little .. there are tons of things you can do to help a project or its community .. you see what happens in this group.. people write articles, share pictures and tweets, notify there friends and followers … people do this because they think its the right thing to do … and at the end I think this is what crypto is all about: get rid of the one-direction-relations .. we can all work together, everybody puts in what he can effort and at the end we all will profit
A: Crypto can help us to stay connected, we can integrate this great tech into real world and we can improve the quality of the life for every person in a decentralized way.

How about if I want to sell a hive?2018-11-17T11:49:34+00:00

If You are Alpha Colony adopter You Will have the. Option to sell Your place in Alpha Colony at AUCTION (in second year , the place worth 2 hives and 20k locked) . You cannot sell one of Your hive because You Will dismount the architecture (You cannot be Alpha adopter with one hive in year 3). If You do not prefer to sell Your place in Auction and If You need to go out fast from adoption, IT Will be the possibility to renounce and Will receive the rest of APIS that are still locked at that time for Your hives.

 

What is adoption architecture?2018-11-17T11:50:29+00:00

A1: The adoption architecture is like a crypto miner but, here we bring the value, as an old wine. The revenue will grow as time pass. Your Alpha colony place will have a separate value that cannot be fixed (because Alpha places are limited). After year 3, another development architecture will be applied (and gamma adopters will need to wait 3 years to arrive in that point)

A2: Architecture hives are paired with initial hives and have to be sold together.

So the difference between alpha and beta hives is that alpha hives get into the 5-7 year plan a year sooner?2018-11-17T11:52:01+00:00

Yes, one of them. Also the Apis costs/hive over the time, the shares generated in this time, and more :). If you are Alpha adopter you are X2 beta adopter and X3 gamma adopter .

What does “commissioning the “initial Clusters” proposed within the projected schedule and budget” mean, from https://apismellifera.io/apis-foundation, BDD part?2018-11-17T11:53:10+00:00

Commissioning is that part of work when everything is implemented and we need to see that all from checklist was done (this is commissioning the working site, when you take it from implementation and you deliver it for production).

Where are the locations of the Apiaries?2018-11-17T11:54:17+00:00

Nadas and Vizma.

How long do you get a share of the honey production? as long as you hold the tokens?2018-11-17T11:54:56+00:00

Yes, because, in normal condition, the bee families are surviving from year to year, just to take care of them.

If I lock 30k APIS tokens, are they directly related to a real existing hive? Or is it just like a representation of the share of the honey production of one hive?2018-11-17T11:56:00+00:00

A: Yes, is directly related to a real existing hive. You will have a console where you will have the option to manage (according with the apiary development directions), you can choose if you want that your family grow or produce more honey. In the platform you will have the option to control your production (if you want receive or you want to sell it in 3rd lvl shop domain – in APIS Token, or you will have the option to sell at our en-gros buyers). Also will be installed a CCTV streaming system and you will have the visibility to your Hive, you can put your advertise on your hive you will have the option to name your queen and much more
A: In order to adopt a family, you will first have to lock the tokens in our platform.

 

Do you have any experienced beekeepers?2018-11-17T11:57:42+00:00

We have youth and also experimented team of beekeepers.

If you adopt 10 or more hives you get a 7 day visit at your hives … who covers which costs?2018-11-17T11:59:24+00:00

You will be our guest here, for 7 days, everything covered, except the plane ticket. We will organize beekeeping training’s with diploma, and you will have full access to your hive, to learn from your bee families.

On your website, where I need to register our new adoption. Why?2018-11-17T12:01:31+00:00

To link the tokens locked (hives adopted) with the adopter, we are offering our platform at: app.apismellifera.io

What about the platform development?2018-11-17T12:02:23+00:00

Our platform concept is under developing , different functions will be integrated when will be ready for use (configured and tested). Application concept will be a friendly-user interface, connecting the physical implanted hives with the ones from the platform. Will offer an overview about honey quantities and available tokens, facilitating direct link between Bee Families, Hives Adopters and APIS Team.

What exactly is the difference between limited and unlimited platform access?2018-11-17T12:03:34+00:00

The limits are given by the adoption plan. Product diversity limitation, movement or accessibility on the platform will not be limited (please see differences between adoption plans at the final of FAQ).

When winter and autumn have come, do your honey farms still produce honey?2018-11-17T12:04:37+00:00

A1: No, over winter you will still get honey from summer production, every month you will have 1 kg of honey/ hive.

A2: From august/September, if is a normal weather, we are not harvesting the honey because we need to let food inside the Hive, for winter season. Depending on the adopted plan: if you have a hive, you will receive 12 kg pure honey/year (if it’s not affected by another facts) , if you have 10 hives, you will receive half production, in the harvesting season.

What method do you use for sterilization?2018-11-17T12:05:27+00:00

The disinfection is done through the flame, and the hive is sterilized through the flame to eliminate parasites.

If the hive dies for any reason, what happens to the share we purchase?2018-11-17T12:06:16+00:00

A1: We will always have at lease 20% more hives for backup (risk management cluster). The worst that can happen is to have some delays until we replace it. And we will never have them all in one place. If the bees in one area dies for any reason we will replace them ASAP. Actually, the 20% of hive that we will keep for backup we will use to grow other families.

A2: The bee families life risks will be covered by insurances/risk management department. If a family will disapear (different risks), will be replaced as soon as possible, by APIS Team. The shares remain as in the plans with the comment that, if 50% shares from Premium adopters are less than 12 Kg, will be shared the minimum 1kg per month (reported in one calendaristic year).

Could we buy a design for the hive using Apis token?2018-11-17T12:07:02+00:00

Any type of design can be discussed with our BDD team also with our artist, and each model will have a price in APIS Token (final draft will be confirmed by adopter).

Are there any other perspective in the future for the APIS project? (I thought about orchids. Some are worth quite a lot.2018-11-17T12:07:58+00:00

We are thinking about some cultures, because we will need flowers for the bees and, combining the necessity of feeding the bees through year with some cultures that are expensive, we can generate another kind of raw materials (and, of course, another type of honey – for example lavander: perfumes industry and honey industry). We will have our luxury clusters (as Manuka Honey, Mad Honey) for our business and premium adopters. Also through Franchise product, we want to expand our adoption project worldwide, providing different types of honey with different medicinal qualities.

 

What is alpha hive vs beta hive?2018-11-17T12:08:47+00:00

Alpha hives is first year, beta is second and gamma is third!

 

Please explain another scenario2018-11-17T12:25:40+00:00

Q: If I buy 5 alpha hives. After 1 year I will have 5 alpha and 5 beta hives. If I buy 5 new beta hives, will I get a premium beta account plus basic alpha account?
A: If you buy 5 alpha hives, next year you will have 10 alpha hives (but, your account will be basic because, the innitial adopted hives was 5). So, in second year you have 10 hives, but, 5 are original ones and 5 are from architecture expanse – your account is still basic because of the initial hives adopted. To adopt 5 hives , next year, you will have the chance to adopt it from Beta colony (so, another adoption plan, with 20k/hive – this will cost you extra 100k APIS, next year), and, totally, you will have 15 hives (10 from Alpha colony and 5 Beta colony hives )

How does the locked token work?2018-11-17T12:11:58+00:00

Tokens will be locked in the management platform, where you will have full access to manage your hive (general management directions) and also you will have different options: send products between adopters, storage, movement of the products, an inside market to trade between adopters: bee families, products.

What is the meaning of APIS Year?2018-11-17T12:12:37+00:00

Counting the bee life cycle, also the harvesting/hibernating seasons, we define the term: APIS Year. APIS year – defined as: first month of APIS year is the month of  starting the adoption process : October. Last month of APIS year : September (next year).

Differences between virtual and physical hives ?2018-11-17T12:14:06+00:00

Physical Hive : an adopted hive that is already on the field. Generate production shares :

-1kg/month – Polyfloral Honey (for Basic accounts) ,

– ½ Honey production (Premium accounts),

– ½ Raw Materials Production (Business accounts).

Virtual Hive : an adopted hive that is going to be physically implanted. Generate Apis Token shares :

– payment made quarterly (first month of next quarter),

– value of shares: average of APIS/USD (min,max of the quarter) reported to average Honey/USD of the quarter.

What are the virtual hives shares? How is calculated this ?2018-11-17T12:15:09+00:00

Each Virtual Hive is generating APIS Token equivalent with 1kg honey (USD market price). The reference prices are the averages from the last quarter.

Alpha Colony Architecture development.2018-11-17T12:16:13+00:00

Alpha Colony development architecture for each individual hive:

– year 1: 1 hive and 30k APIS Token locked;

– year 2: 2 hives and 20k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases and parcels, Adopters will provide bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team). Unlocked 10k APIS Token at the start of year 2.

– year 3: 3 hives and 10k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases + parcels, Adopters will provide Bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team). Unlocked 10k APIS Token at the start of year 3.

Alpha Colony place background value : year 1: 30k APIS Token= 1 hive, year 2: 20k APIS Token= 2 hives, year 3: 10k APIS Token = 3 hives.

Beta Colony Architecture development.2018-11-17T12:17:08+00:00

Beta Colony development architecture for each individual hive:

– year 1: 1 hive and 20k APIS Token locked;

– year 2: 2 hives and 15k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases and parcels, Adopters will provide bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team). Unlocked 5k APIS Token at the start of year 2.

– year 3: 3 hives and 10k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases + parcels, Adopters will provide Bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team). Unlocked 5k APIS Token at the start of year 3.

Beta Colony place background value : year 1: 20k APIS Token= 1 hive, year 2: 15k APIS Token= 2 hives, year 3: 10k APIS Token = 3 hives.

Gamma Colony Architecture development.2018-11-17T12:17:59+00:00

Gamma Colony development architecture for each individual hive:

– year 1: 1 hive and 10k APIS Token locked;

– year 2: 2 hives and 10k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases and parcels, Adopters will provide bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team).

– year 3: 3 hives and 10k APIS Token locked. APIS Team will provide cases + parcels, Adopters will provide Bee family (Premium and Business accounts have % of bee families covered by APIS Team).

Gamma Colony place background value : year 1: 10k APIS Token= 1 hive, year 2: 10k APIS Token= 2 hives, year 3: 10k APIS Token = 3 hives.

What happens after 3 years of locked APIS Token?2018-11-17T12:18:46+00:00

After APIS Year 3 will be finalized, will follow year 4 – when we will stabilize first phase of architecture development (first 3 years). In the course of this year, APIS Team will propose the new architectural plan, covering second phase of development (year 5-year 7).

If I buy 5 hives now, and in one year, buy 5 “initial” Alpha Colony places from someone next year, I would move from basic to premium?2018-11-17T12:19:39+00:00

Correct. And next year, if you will buy 5 initial alpha hives, you will have 20 hives in total (the 5 that you will buy are coming with another 5 hives, from 2019).

The tokens can be unlocked, in case you want to sell them?2018-11-17T12:20:19+00:00

If you will have one hive, second year you will have 2 hives, third year you will have 3 hives (bee families). If you will want to unlock your tokens, you will loose this combination (the place in first colony), and, to have another Hive, you will need to wait the second release (next year).

 

And if a premium investor decides to sell 10 hives in a year, the person buying will get a premium alpha account from those ten? If so, does the person selling still have a premium account from the ten hives they now have left over?2018-11-17T12:21:18+00:00

I will respond with an example : Adopter X have 55 hives initially . After one year, he has 110 hives, and decides to sell 10 hives. The situation is : 55 (initial) + 55 (architecture) – he will sell his colony adoption rights for 5 initial hives (totally will be 10). what is sold at the AUCTIONS is the initial place (with the rights from that point on). In this way, he will remain business adopter (50 initial hives remaining), and, the buyer will be an adopter with 5 initial rights (and 5 obtained in second year).

If Adopter X, having 55 hives, want to sell 6 initial rights (12 hives, in second year, 18 hives in third year), he will pass from Business account to Premium account (because, in total will remain with 49 initial rights).

Can you offer more details about bee population growth?2018-11-17T12:23:24+00:00

For example: if we succeed to growth the bee families, in the spring, with 33 % per total , 25% will be shared with Business Plan owners, 8% with Premium Plan adopters (not more than 15%). if the growth is 44% (cumulated, risk management cluster and the rest of apiaries will generate a growth rate), this will be shared as : 25% business adopters, 15% premium adopters, 4% basic adopters.
