How Not to Get Your Assets Removed or Account Banned
The introduction of exciting new technologies to consumer applications is a tremendous opportunity that enables new ways to create, share, earn, and more. At Revel.xyz, we’re innovating in several areas, including AI-generated art, “trading” personal digital assets, and growing and monetizing a web3-powered brand.
However, these innovations also bear risks–to our users and community, to our company, and to outside parties. As a company, we want to build an amazing and safe experience for our users, but we also have a responsibility to maintain a platform that complies with intellectual property regulations and other laws.
Additionally, we’ll do our best to make it more clear within the app what is acceptable and what is not. We hate removing assets, and we REALLY hate banning accounts, so it’s our intention to create as secure a platform as possible so that we can work with all of you, our treasured users, to create an amazing ecosystem within Revel.xyz.
To help you further understand what is acceptable and unacceptable when creating assets on Revel.xyz, we’re going to share some examples below.
Television and Film Characters
If there’s one thing that we’ve learned over the last month, it’s that our users really love Marvel movies! So many of you are fans of Iron Man and Spider-Man.
And DC, especially The Joker (incidentally, you may have noticed that we have an unrelated utility token in our app called the Joker, which we covered in a previous blog post).
You also love Star Wars!
We don’t blame you! Many of us at Revel.xyz are also big fans of these franchises.
However, creating assets using clearly recognizable characters and brands is not allowed on our platform and these assets will be removed. For repeat offenders, accounts may even be subject to ban. This is even true when you are using our built-in AI tool to create new images–the technology is new and evolving and it’s up to all of us to use discretion with the new art that we create. “Fan art” can still violate copyright laws and trademarks.
We also cannot allow users to upload new versions of existing NFTs. We’ve seen many images of Bored Ape Yacht Club, Moonbirds, Doodles, Azuki, and more uploaded to our platform. These can not only be misleading to other users who might want to trade for them but would ultimately create confusion on the blockchain when we introduce the ability to remove assets from Revel.xyz and trade them elsewhere. So, please refrain from this practice, even for NFTs that you already own!
Photos and Videos from the Internet
The final major category we’d like to speak to today is images and videos that users take from elsewhere. We’ve seen lots of great photos of Lionel Messi, world leaders, awesome sports cars, watches, and more, but these photos are only valid for minting on Revel.xyz when you’ve taken them yourselves.
How You Can Help
Trading for Problematic Assets
One last point we’d like you to think about when using Revel.xyz–assets that you trade for that infringe upon IP or are otherwise problematic, as we detailed above, may well be banned after you’ve traded for them. In such cases, the Estimated Asset Values are reset to defaults. So, please be careful about the trades that you make as you do not want to unintentionally lose portfolio value after trading for an asset that will ultimately be removed. We need a healthy community, aware of the rules, in order for Revel.xyz to be successful.
