Hey whalefam; this is just a combination of all the hold-to-play roles in one place rather than having them in different posts. Each one is sectioned accordingly:
1) Dolphin,
2) Shark,
3)$WHALE-Whale,
4)Whale-DAO, and
5) MORK

As of December 2020, we are now using a bot named nft42:

We are moving the way roles are applied from being in discord to onchain. This is part of the continuing process of moving as much as we can onchain.

There are a few things you will have to do to maintain your Dolphin/Shark/Whale roles. Firstly, moving your $Whale to a metamask wallet. (or any web3 should work) Direct Message(DM) the tip.cc bot the following: $withdraw whale. The bot will then guide you through the process. The destination address should be the metamask or web3 wallet.

*Please note, there is a small fee attached to the withdrawal of your $Whale, this is dependent on the current gas price: https://ethgasstation.info/

  • For anybody who has not used onchain wallets before, please also note that moving $Whale from your onchain address will require a small amount of ethereum going forward.

**Metamask wallet download: PC: https://metamask.io/download.html

**Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.metamask&hl=en_GB&gl=US

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.metamask

**iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/metamask/id1438144202

Following this, these are 5 easy steps to bind your discord and Metamask and claim back your roles:

  • 1) Type the command !verify in #bot-commands in the official whale Discord. The bot will DM you a link to click on. That link will send you to discord’s oauth2 page. This is the page that discord uses to connect your account to a bot, and will only ask you to view your discord name and profile.

  • 2) Click “authorize” and you will be redirected to the verification page
  • 3) You will be prompted to connect Metamask in web page, then sign message in the Metamask pop up.

  • 4) wait until webpage tells you that you are verified
  • 5) use the command !claim rolename in the Discord to claim whichever roles you have the whale to support*.
    *if you have 800 $whale you can claim whale-whales and dolphin, or shark and dolphin, but not whale and shark because the total amount the roles cost is more than the 800 $whale you have. If you have any questions feel free to ask for help in #support

There is even a shortcut to claim all eligible roles should you meet the requirements: !claimall
This command will assign you each role that you are eligible for. But make sure to double check, because if you meet the requirements for even one role it will put a checkmark underneath the command to assign you that one role:

Furthermore: you can see all the roles available in the server by typing: !showroles in #bot-commands

Welcome to HODL to Play (H2P).

For those new to the crypto scene this will be a brief explanation of how h2p works:

Following the steps below for each role will then give you said role in Discord. Afterwards, you are opened up to the respective discord channel where which you earn passive “interest” on your holdings.

H2P is restricted to the Dolphin role and above. H2P includes $WHALE Events, $WHALE games, $WHALE Poker and other opportunities to earn or win $WHALE. Why? Owning at least the Dolphin role indicates to us that you believe in the longer term vision of $WHALE, and are willing to at least HODL a token amount.

What do I need to buy crypto?
Two things; A wallet and Ethereum. We recommend Metamask to be used. This wallet can be integrated into your browser: Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and also into your mobile phone.

Ethereum can be purchased directly from Metamask via Credit Card, or you can use a secondary exchange such as Coinbase or Binance.

The end of this post has the two links required to then finish your purchase of $WHALE or $MORK

Whale DAO

$WHALE DAO Mechanics:
Editor’s note: The DAO role was not updated along with the other roles due to the lockup period of 6 months not ending. The team are still on track to continue this 6 month cycle and will refund your whale as promised by that time.

1) Two DAO roles will be created: “DAO-Whale” and “DAO”

2) The “DAO-Whale” role will have the ability to make up to 2 proposals per month to be voted on, and will also have the ability to vote on active proposals.

3) The DAO role will have the ability to vote on all active proposals.

4) Upon acquisition of either of the above two roles, the “DAO” channel will automatically appear under the “WHALE Communities” category.

5) Similar to $WHALE Whales and Dolphins, the above two roles will be hold-to-play (H2P) with an enrollment period of 1 month and an overlapping lock up period of 6 months.

6) After the 1 month enrollment period, both roles will be unable to be “purchased”.

7) The staking required for the two roles are as follows:

“DAO-Whale” role: 1,000 $WHALE

“DAO” role: 500 $WHALE

8) After the first 6 month cycle, deposits will be returned to all $WHALE DAO members and the hold-to-play requirements will increase by 20% i.e. $WHALE DAO II will require 1,200 $WHALE for the “DAO-Whale” role and 600 $WHALE for the “DAO” role.

9) Commands for purchasing the roles in the #bot-commands channel after ensuring that your tipbot wallet has the sufficient balance is:

$store buy dao-whale for the DAO-Whale role

and

$store buy dao for the DAO role

$WHALE DAO Governance:

1) Proposals and voting will only be valid when there are over 50 participating DAO-Whales and DAOs (total).

2, The minimum votes (Yes, No, Abstain) required for a proposal to be effective is 31.

3) No member should utilize more than 1 account for voting and/ or proposal purposes. If due diligence is done and a transgression is found, the $WHALE deposited for the role will be forfeit and distributed to the remaining $WHALE DAO members.

4) No founder, administrator, moderator or affiliated partner will receive a free pass into $WHALE DAO. This is a commitment towards the long term governance and growth of the $WHALE Community.

5) 1 vote is 1 vote, no matter who or where that vote is from.

6) DAO-Whales who make proposals exceeding their monthly quota will have 3 warnings before being expelled from the DAO with their $WHALE being forfeit and distributed to the remaining $WHALE DAO members.

$WHALE DAO Topics:

1) The ultimate goal for $WHALE DAO is to have:

1a) $WHALE community governance

1b) $WHALE budgeting governance

1c) Governance and management of the usage of ETH and other cryptocurrencies in The Vault

1d) Governance and management of assets in The Vault

2) For this first iteration of $WHALE DAO, we will be focusing on the first two: Community and Budgeting governance.

3) Examples of proposals that can be voted on are as follows:

3a) Kick/ ban members from Discord

3b) Moderator/ Junior Moderator/ Advocate nominations

3c) Moderator/ Junior Moderator/ Advocate demotions

3d) $WHALE Events additions and removals

3e) $WHALE Competition proposals

3f) Changes to $WHALE monthly budgeting

PARTICIPATION, RESOLUTION AND REWARDS:
1) @DAO-Whale and @DAO-Voter have an increased responsibility to participate in the governance process and will be subject to an increased number of reminders should participation levels fall short of the required votes.

2) Team $WHALE are bound to begin or fully execute on all passed proposals within a 72 hour time frame after a proposal has been successfully voted on.

3) Proposals that do not pass through either the #dao-house or #dao-senate cannot be brought up again within the calendar month, but can be proposed again in the following calendar month.

4) Given the importance of the @DAO-Whale and @DAO-Voter roles for final proposal validation, 2,000 $WHALE will be air-dropped to these roles on a monthly basis.

5) A reward of 30 $WHALE will be provided to non @DAO-Whale members that create proposals, are sponsored for the voting process by a @DAO-Whale and whose proposals are successfully executed by Team WHALE. [In voting process]
