Cyber Samurai Launching on DropZone

Cyberpunk inspired Samurai, writing the story of Solana DeFi

We’re excited to announce that on September 16, Cyber Samurai will be launching on DropZone!

The Cyber Samurai Genesis Collection consists of 5,000 unique algorithmically generated 8-bit Cyberpunk inspired Samurai Warriors. Each Samurai Warrior has a unique set of traits and accessories, or none at all.

This article will cover two sections: 1) the DropZone launch on Raydium 2) Drop Box redemption for an NFT.

1. Cyber Samurai DropZone launch:

DropZone Process Overview:

  1. When the DropZone pool opens, users deposit SOL to enter tickets in the lottery for an NFT allocation.
  2. Each winning ticket can claim a “Drop Box” token which represents one NFT allocation. Non-winning tickets claim back SOL.
  3. Each Drop Box token can then be redeemed on the project’s website to mint one original NFT from the project collection at random.

Eligibility and pool details:

There will be one SOL pool available for the Cyber Samurai drop.

  • Allocation will be determined by a lottery system.
  • Allocation for one winning lottery ticket: 1 Drop Box
  • Deposits will be capped at 9 SOL per user, equal to 3 tickets
  • The pool will be open for 5 minutes
  • There are no RAY staking requirements for the Cyber Samurai drop

How does it work?

Tickets: Users are eligible for 3 tickets maximum. However, for a ticket to be counted in the lottery, users must deposit SOL for each ticket they wish to have entered.

  • Example: All users can deposit 3 tickets worth of SOL. Alice deposits 9 SOL for 3 tickets. Bob deposits 3 SOL for 1 ticket.

Deposit: When the pool opens, users will need to deposit 3 SOL for each ticket in order for it to be counted in the lottery. Users can choose to deposit less than their total ticket allocation (3 tickets), however tickets without a matching deposit will not be entered in the lottery. Deposits must be in multiples of 3 SOL.

  • Alice deposits 9 SOL, her maximum, to ensure that all 3 of her tickets are entered in the lottery. Bob deposits 3 SOL even though he has 3 tickets. In Bob’s case, only 1 ticket will be entered in the lottery.

Lottery: Once the pool closes, the lottery will take place and winning tickets will receive a Drop Box for 3 SOL, each. The Drop Box can be redeemed on the Cyber Samurai website for a random Genesis Collection NFT.

IMPORTANT: Drop Boxes must be redeemed on the Cyber Samurai website by September 18, 15:00 UTC. After this time, redemption will be closed by the project and Drop Boxes will no longer be redeemable.

  • Example: Alice has 2 winning tickets and will receive 2 Drop Boxes for 6 SOL. Bob does not have any winning tickets, better luck next time, Bob.

Claim: Once the lottery is complete users will be able to claim their SOL for any tickets that did not win as well as claim their Drop Boxes for winning tickets. Users can then redeem their Drop Box on the Cyber Samurai website (details below).

  • Example: Alice claims 3 SOL for her 1 non-winning ticket and Bob also claims his 3 SOL for his 1 non-winning ticket after the lottery concludes. Alice claims her 2 Drop Boxes from Raydium and can immediately redeem her 2 Drop Boxes on the Cyber Samurai website for 2 Genesis Collection NFTs or choose to trade her Drop Boxes and allow someone else to claim.

Lottery Transparency

The lottery will be done on-chain, with lottery numbers assigned to tickets in the order that users deposit in the pool. After the pool closes, winning numbers will be determined by hashing a block, multiplying it by the timestamp, and matching the last 2 digits of that number with user ticket numbers. Any ticket number with the last 2 digits matching is designated a winning ticket. This process will be repeated until all the winners are determined.

2. Drop Box redemption for a Cyber Samurai Genesis Collection NFT:

  • After the DropZone lottery ends, users can claim their winning Drop Box.
  • Users can then navigate to the Cyber Samurai website and immediately redeem their Drop Box for one Genesis Collection NFT.
  • Drop Boxes must be redeemed on the Cyber Samurai site by September 18, 15:00 UTC. After this time, redemption will be closed by the project and Drop Boxes will no longer be redeemable.

Note: Drop Boxes are transferable and tradable prior to redemption, but they must be redeemed prior to September 18, 15:00 UTC.
