Community Land Sale Update


Recommended Posts


Well, here we are with only a few days to go. The community land sale has surpassed all of our wildest expectations and it’s all thanks to you guys’ excitement! We have received an immense amount of submissions. So many, in fact, that it necessitates some changes to our timeline. Don’t worry, we’re going to outline everything in this blog post, alongside a couple of surprises to show our appreciation. Let’s get into it!

Amazing, Crazy Demand

First and foremost, we are once again blown away by the amount of applications we have received. As of this blog post, the total number of applications we’ve been sent is closing in on 25,000 — holy moly! Even more crazy to think about — the total pledged amount is around $130 million dollars. It’s safe to say that you guys are pretty amped for Ember Sword and we massively appreciate that you are willing to make such a commitment.

We would, naturally, love for each and every one of those to be a part of our world, but, alas, there is only so much land. Therein lies the issue — we have more requests for land than we have land available in this community land sale… About 170x more.

That being said — have no fear! We are working tirelessly to make sure we get Ember Sword land into the hands of as many community members as possible. With that, however, come some necessary changes to the community land sale timeline.

Timeline Shift

Because of the, frankly, astronomical number of submissions, we will need to extend the review period slightly. In rudimentary terms — there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to go through all of the applications and give everyone a fair chance.

Consequently, the judging process will be extended by an additional two weeks, with verdicts expected to be ready around the end of August. That means that the remainder of the community land sale process will be extended as well. The new timeline, then, looks as follows:

  • Selection process — from 1st to 31st of August
  • Contacting those selected — from 1st to 14th of September
  • Land distribution — 15th to 31st of September

Land Allotment

Going through all of those entries and then allocating all the land will be quite the job, so here is how we’re going to get it done.

First, of course, we will need to comb through all 25,000+ submissions, make sure they qualify and rank them in order of eligibility, to ensure the best ones get selected. Even in this preliminary stage of reading through your applications, there are a lot of fantastically written ones that absolutely deserve land. So many, in fact, that, due to the incredible demand, those of you who have requested large amounts of land may only be allotted a part of the land that you asked for. Don’t worry, though — we will not be splitting cities or towns, so if you’re allotted one, you are guaranteed to receive a complete city or town.

Of course, even with us trying as hard as we can to allot land to as many deserving entries, there’s a finite amount of land to go around. We have thought about that as well. Even if you aren’t allotted land in this community sale, we wanted to provide you with as many opportunities as possible to still own a part of Ember Sword.

Additional Benefits For Qualified Entries

Your reception and general discourse surrounding the community sale has been really awesome. Honestly, it feels nice knowing that the very best of you get a chance to be part of shaping Thanabus. So, stemming from that, for each nation’s land sale, during one of the rounds, there will be an accompanying community land sale, just like this one, meaning there will be many more opportunities for stand-out members of our community to become land owners. Details for when and how these will be taking place will be announced as they approach, as always.

But that’s not all.


We want to give as many of you as we can the opportunity to get early access to Ember Sword and also to participate in the very first sale of our Ember token, something which for many other blockchain projects has been limited to large investors. In order to do so, we’ll be introducing some unique NFTs, which will be available only to those that made it through the community sale qualification process. These can be purchased to obtain early access to Ember Sword, some cool perks and the right to claim a portion of Ember tokens during the private sale. More details on that will be announced at a later date, so stay tuned to our socials.

So, there you have it. We continue to be humbled by the unbridled passion the Ember Sword community continues to demonstrate and look forward to making Ember Sword a great experience together with all of you. And, of course, if you haven’t yet submitted your community land sale application, make sure you get it in before July 31st.

Until next time, everybody!
