This is an annual paid subscription service to create nice links to your Hic et Nunc profile, and improve the way your shares look - hic.link/1x1 is mine.
You will also be able to use other ways to link to your profile. This is part of the service - you just choose whichever one suits your voice best. At the moment hic.link, hic.art, hic.film, hic.photo, hic.wtf, hic.gallery, hic.show and hic.lgbt (we are allies of the LGBTQ community) are available but others are coming online very soon. You don't need to do anything. Once you've got your hic.link, you'll automatically have access to them all! For example, you can reach our sister company @FineNFT at hic.gallery/fine
This is not a land grab!. Please make sure you ask for something that you have a legitimate claim to. This will be manually checked. And PLEASE make sure you have completed your profile info on Hic Et Nunc.
How much will it cost? And what do I get?
The cost depends on what you want - it’s currently 2 tez per year for a standard shortlink for the current batch of shortlink accounts.
"Standard" just means 4 letters or more and NOT a common name or word. If you want 3 letters and it's a pretty unique combo, like sbu or something, totally cool to have that for 2 tez. We will judge each case on its merits.
Due to demand, common names and words, and 3-letter shortlinks are considered premium and currently cost 10tez initially, renewing at 5tez per year
2-letter shortlinks are 20tez, renewing at 10tez per year. The subscription period will not start counting until these features are ready, but you can get your link straightaway. Other features will be coming online as the API improves and I find out what will help you guys the most.
I’m working on the backend now - you will get your shortlink assigned immediately, and in the next month or so a login to manage your profile and named links to your work (50 out of the box) like this: hic.link/fragments2. The annual subscription period will not start counting until these features are ready, but you can get your link straightaway. Other features will be coming online as the API improves.
There will be a hard limit on the number of accounts but I haven’t decided what that is yet.
Can I have whatever shortlink I want?
Pretty much, yes. There will of course be an availability checker very soon but for now, best to ask our comms director Jen Kam via DMs on Twitter.
There is no "computer says no" here - this is a human interaction and we’ll definitely judge each case on it’s merits.
Sounds good. How do I get mine?
Twitter DMs for now. Please hit up our comms director Jen on Twitter - her DMs are open and you'll see "comms @1x1_NFT" in her profile.
