Projects + Use Cases

Applications of Charged Particles protocol in action.

Web 3.0 Publishing

The Cortex Network is a scalable, provable, user-centric network for publishing Web3 content. Not your keys, not your content. Each of the Cortex .hmn and .ape domains are enabled with Charged Particles functionality. ENS ready, Web 3.0 publishing-enabled smart wallets.

Vesting Capsules

Nest and time-lock tokens in an NFT for a vesting period. This NFT can be immediately traded or collateralized without the tokens hitting the market. Read all about Vesting Capsules here

Vesting vouchers from the launch of $PDT are inside Vesting Capsules. In lieu of a time-lock, the team has elected that the Capsules function as a "Governance Vessels", as long as the vesting vouchers remain within the Vesting Capsule. Each Vesting Capsule is individually customized for each of the 17 founders of Paragons DAO. (Proton token IDs 685-701, 703). 16.8 million $PDT vested inside, for a Total Value Locked of $25.2 million (at time of issue).

10% of the Total Supply of FRAK tokens has been locked in Charged Particles Vesting Capsules.

The Blue Chip NFTs are 200 hand drawn CC0rn chips have been minted onto the Ethereum blockchain. As a fork of the Proton contract, they can hold unlimited tokens inside. The founding team have locked 240k GUAC, SALSA, and QUESO tokens into their team NFTs with our vesting capsule model.

Commission-free Services

A revolutionary business model for music distribution royalties: 0 % fees for the musicians. This business model is sound, as royalties are converted to stablecoins, which earn interest for the distribution service until claimed by the musician.

Real Estate

TaterDAO's core mission is to develop data standards and processes allowing digital organizations to manage, buy, sell, and lease real property using smart contracts, decentralized financial and legal structures. The core primitives begin with the TaterDAO NFT platform that will quickly enable parties to mint and manage real world asset NFT's to use in their ventures.

Regenerative Finance

Regenerative forestry charity initiative using interest-bearing DeFi NFTs to perpetually plant trees. Over 19517 trees planted so far.

BasinDAO scales real estate restoration and conservation to solve the climate, nature, and carbon crises. Each river basin around the world is represented by a Charged Particles NFT that in turn acts as an account for sustainable restoration of these areas.

Nested Generative NFT Drops

PFP Projects that are Charged Particles enabled include: Board Apes, Goblin Town, FLUF World, Moonbirds, Azuki, Hashmasks, and more.

Particlon is the first Generative- Energizable ("Genergizable") PFP drop! They contain Particlon Utility Tokens ($PUT) at mint, with the unlimited capacity to hold further tokens.

After David Rodman sent his FLUF World NFT to space aboard a SpaceX rocket, we used our tech to nest a "proof-of-space" certificate inside his NFT. Charged Particles can be used for a myriad of credentials use-cases.


A single DAO Capsule NFT can act as:

  • A membership/governance token for access and voting (compatible with Snapshot, Collabland, Gnosis, etc.)

  • A vault to time-lock tokens of equity

  • A mailbox/bank account to receive payments/dividends/rewards/NFTs

Digital Identity Tooling

NFTs with Fungible tokens for a more dynamic governance structure. Rethinking governance token design ideas to incorporate not only fungible/transferable tokens.

Web 3.0 Gaming

A PvP game played with Energized game card NFTs. Weapons & award NFTs Nested inside each player's game cards. Following on from the successes of ‘Lunar Landing’ and ‘Ultimate Trash Panda’.

Charged Particles Gaming Guild’s flagship project, Book of Alchemy, is pushing the boundaries of composability and story-telling

A Polygorn is a blockchain-born NFT battle monster with unlock-able attack powers and two levels of potential evolution. Players can unlock the monster’s attack powers, and battle with the NFT's. Also, the monsters are cute. Organized in Charged Particles' Gaming Guild (Discord). First Battle Arena here.

Metaverse Composability

More Use Case Ideas

  • Geocaches with Dischargeable interest

  • 'Combine Harvesting': farm multiple protocols with a single NFT

  • Turn your favorite NFT into a Goal-Based interest earning Piggy bank. The accumulating interest inside of your NFT changes the image of the artwork as time progresses. Visually seeing your goal-based savings account transforming closer and closer to that goal . The NFT image would change based on the amount of charge and helps people visualize what they’re saving for, e.g. the NFT’s image could be a gray car that turns into a colored-in one as you get closer to your goal.

  • Music NFT: A Meta “Album” NFT filled with (time-locked) individual songs NFTs that have customizable release conditions

  • Token-Gated Access Newsletters / Chats — Incorporating the accumulated interest (‘charge’) aa NFT has — incorporating this ‘proof of length of NFT ownership’ mechanic quite beautifully.

  • Financial-themed Art. Used for financial communities. Think of a beautifully designed 100 LINK Bill filled with 100 LINK worth of aLINK growing interest over time.

  • Charity-Focused Art Sales. Portion of interest-generated (CHARGE) always pays out to charity (or any ETH address).

  • Patreon-Style Donations. Fans can deposit tokens into an artist’s NFT. The artist’s NFT (pre-sale) can be accruing donations before being sold in the open market.

  • Particle with link to Physical Art. Think about having a Particle that is linked to a physical artwork, generating charge internally, giving a percentage to charity/museum. The charity/museum element would be a much more interest-ing and accessible thing for someone non-crypto-native to appreciate the digital ‘core’ of the piece. Rather than just looking at a jpeg, they’re looking at a piece of functional technology that is generating good in the world while it sits on the wall.

  • Virtual Geocaching. Treasure hunts for hidden NFTs in the Metaverse! When you find it you get to discharge the accrued interest and leave your name. The NFT stays for the next person to find… the longer it takes, the more accumulated interest (charge) to gain!

  • Transfer collections of tokens in a single transaction (ERC721 Transfer). FIll up your NFT with a basket of other tokens. This basket is easily transferable, could be used as a trust as the contents can be timelocked.

  • Entertainment NFTs — a basket of trading cards based on Celebrities who have social tokens, and the NFTs contain some amount of their token

NFTs can be filled with multiple tokens. Want your NFT to hold 1000 aDAI, 0.022 UNI-V2, 0.052 UNI-V2, 100 aDAI, 2 WETH, 1000 $ALEX — No worries!

Configurations on when/who/how the Mass (Principle) or Charge (Interest) can be reclaimed.

Configurations on where/when/how interest is discharged for NFTs with aTokens.

Ability for any user to easily deposit tokens into other users’ NFT.

These building blocks enabled by Charged Particles; paired with the creativity we see in this space… We’re excited!
