- The Alkebulan Tribe
- Project Phase 1 - Enter Alkebulan

- Project Phase 3 - The Alkebulan Tribe
The Alkebulan Tribe NFTs is an African historically driven, character-focused gaming collection that looks to tell the collective African stories through their figures, beings, and titles acknowledged through African history and Mythology.
It is our belief that there is always power in the knowledge of one's true origin and this is why we are combining that purpose of sharing this rich history with the rest of the world through stories long told utilizing technology still being explored with limitlessness.
The NFT collection is a gaming-based collection with Comic titles to different character arts that inspire the strength, courage, and truth of Africa’s heroes and villains' past.
In simple terms, we are bringing the past into the future, and we believe that by doing so, we rewrite the history books themselves by acknowledging the power of the tribe, the Alkebulan tribe.

The story is Alkebulan: Chronicles of Nkari.
The Alkebulan tribe is a collective born of the hearts and minds of some of the brightest out of Africa. The goal is to tell and preserve Africa's culture, story, tradition, and folklore to a new generation, in a way that will never be forgotten.
The tribe is made up of people who believe in telling these stories, and the rich histories, and share a passion for technology-driven products that can be leveraged to improve lives and systems that support the development of people and economies.
We strongly believe in education, not in the common term, but in the actuality of the word, knowing that where there is true knowledge, there’s always light and prosperity. This was our first goal, to build a group of knowledgeable individuals who are passionate about understanding the future of technology, exchange, and value. We knew that once we can focus on giving out this information, we can make a community of like-minded individuals that share similar passions, for this information, the histories, and our stories are yet untold. We are aware that building a community is the most important phase and can determine the success or failure of any project from the get-go. For any project to succeed, it needs a strong and supportive community that shares the same vision of the project. So, we set out to educate and find those who share our minds and vision
Free Seminars on NFTs to Beginners
We hosted several NFTs training sessions for FREE across multiple platforms on social media, helping beginners who were passionate about NFTs and web 3.0 already but couldn’t get a clear understanding of what the collective buzz was about to learn the details and simplicity behind the future technology. We had intended to host pocket classes and sessions but ended up with a massive response and interest from people from all over the globe who took interest in learning about NFTs, building our community founders as thought leaders in the space, and growing a community of followers who were passionate first about learning what was to be explored through NFTs.
Build Online Communities
As we grew a following of passionate individuals who wanted to understand NFTs, the massive break for our product came when we finally revealed our product's kick-off 3D animated video. The video grew in attendance and raised our discord community organically to 2000 members within our first two weeks of sharing our video.
The introduction to characters was unexpected and even built excitement amongst those who had joined to learn and gather those who were excited about our story. As of March 2022, We are over 12000 strong members within our Discord alone
As the community grew and continues to grow, we recruited moderators who manage the community and keep the energy growing with trivia, games, and giveaways.
During this stage, we put a giveaway for the Oculus Quest 2 to show our commitment to the community and build an understanding of the opportunities within the metaverse.
Pilot Issue of our Comic (Issue 000)
This is the pre-series release to elaborate on the back story, we would be releasing an amazing and rich character-focused comic to our community members to kick start the story and adventure that await them in our future gaming universe.
Build Smart Contract
We are a group made up of intelligent technology experts and we value the security that comes with NFT products, as such, we would be working on building a strong and future-minded contract using Ethereum ERC721A
We would be allowing the minting of our initial 6000 unique pieces with 20 unique special Characters to guide our games and Comic stories. The mint would happen on our website https://alkebulantribe.io
Pieces Reveal for Public Listing
The reveal would showcase all our 6000 unique pieces and their special character traits. These pieces would then be made available for a secondary listing.
List on Opensea
Our next step would be to have our pieces within the secondary market OpenSea to expose our collection to even more people across the globe
Our first initiative after sales would be to support and give back through charity projects by sponsoring the campaign to restore Africa History (Pre-Colonisation, Colonization Era & Post Colonization Era) as educational resources for Students. We would also be sponsoring graduate trainees to push a movement on educating the younger generation of Africans to learn about the rich history of pre-colonization to improve the confidence and courage of Africans to fearlessly pursue their dreams, goals, and beliefs without the fears or limitations.
Free Release of Alkebulan Comics Monthly for the first three (3) issues and the 5th issue as a Free Comic Book NFT for Alkebulan Holders (Every 10th Edition would be AirDrop as Free NFTs to 3+ Pieces Alkebulan holders).
3D AirDrops Pieces
We will be giving away 3D Airdrop pieces to holders of Alkebulan NFT as Collectibles
Special Release of Motion Comics
In pursuit of our goal, we would release an interactive motion comic with a special edition of our comic collection within the blockchain exclusively available to holders of our NFTs.
Creation of Smart Contract for the Alkebulan Tokens (Alkebulan Manillas)
As a serious contender for the metaverse, we would be setting out to set up our own tokens named after the original name assigned to the mode of transactions historically in ancient times known as Manillas. Alkebulan manillas will be the first utility to be introduced as the currency in the Alkebulan Tribe Metaverse. It can be used to transact within the Metaverse to interact with the contracts for future features
Establish a launch process for the Alkebulan Manillas
Alkebulan Manillas is not only a utility token but also a governance token for our Alkebulan Tribe Metaverse, the more Alkebulan Manillas you have, the more authority and influence you have for future roadmap and features.
Game Development for Mobile Application Users
This would be the highlight for Phase 2 as we are already developing our gaming construct for mobile users on Android and iOS platforms. We would be releasing this game with incredible characters, animation, style, and story background to allow our community enjoys activities they can have fun with while interacting with other community members within the game. The game would also allow owners of pieces a lifetime profit from character skin rights purchases.
Value offer of lifetime revenue from character skin purchases to the holders of the Alkebulan piece, whose skin is purchased
Oculus Version of our Game
Our next gaming presence would be on the web 3.0 technology itself for Oculus Horizon Metaverse to create an experience for our users to interact at a very high level with community members and the pieces
Web 3.0 Version of our Game
Beyond the Oculus version, we would also release general web 3.0 versions of the game for other users within the metaverse
Access to own land, assets, etc within our web 3.0 game using the Alkebulan Manillas
This would allow our community members to purchase assets that they can profit from within our games, with special collectibles that can be traded across the space
Meet-Up within our Existing Metaverse
To prove how ahead of the times we are, we have secured a metaverse property that would allow our community members and holders of our pieces to interact, trade, build relationships within our space
Tokenization of Revenue
All earnings made from skin purchases can now be made into our token on the blockchain and utilized for all transactions within our metaverse
