Introduction

The Planica NFT Ski Jumpers Collection 2022 project
The Planica NFT Ski Jumpers Collection 2022 project is organised by the SLOSKI National sports association in cooperation with ICONOMI. The Planica 2022 NFT Marketplace is developed by ICONOMI and hosted on the ICONOMI platform.
NFTs are an exceptional collector's opportunity, so we know that many sports enthusiasts will want a unique piece from our Planica 2022 collection.
Our aim is to help the sport and to give something back to the athletes. That's why 33% of all funds raised will go to athletes, 33% to their national ski organisations, and 33% to the organising committee of Planica.
What is an NFT?
Non-fungible tokens, more commonly known as NFTs, are unique assets that exist on the blockchain. They come in the form of digital collectables or even tangible items that can be easily traded on the blockchain. Every NFT has an ID code that proves its legitimacy, creation, and ownership.
Where and when will the auction start?
The Planica 2022 NFT Marketplace and auction is hosted on the ICONOMI platform.
Bidding will be open from 18 March 10:00 CET to 27 March 12:00 CET 2022. Preview of NFTs will be available from 15 March 2022.
We suggest that you register your ICONOMI account and prepare Tether (USDT) balance before those dates.

Before you can start bidding on NFTs

1. Create your ICONOMI account (register account and verify your identity)
Go to ICONOMI. In case you don't have an ICONOMI account, you need to register and verify your identity (complete Tier 1 verification) - go to https://www.iconomi.com/register and follow the onscreen instructions. The registration and verification process is simple and it takes only a couple of minutes to complete. If you already have an ICONOMI account, proceed to log in. Once your account is Tier 1 verified and you’re logged in to the ICONOMI platform proceed to Step 2 - Prepare Tether (USDT) balance.
2. Prepare Tether (USDT) balance on your ICONOMI account
Bidding is done in Tether (USDT). Therefore, you need Tether (USDT) balance on your ICONOMI account to participate in the auction.
What is Tether (USDT)?
Tether (USDT) is a blockchain-based stablecoin currency. The value of stablecoins is equal to a fiat currency. Tether is pegged to USD, meaning that one USDT is equal to USD 1.00.
How do you get Tether (USDT)?
You can buy USDT on the ICONOMI platform.
Login to your ICONOMI account and follow these steps:
1. Make a deposit of funds to your ICONOMI account:
  • Use the Money transfer option for depositing EUR from your bank account to your ICONOMI account
  • Or, if you have crypto outside the ICONOMI platform, choose the Crypto transfer option for depositing Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) or Tether (USDT) to your ICONOMI account.
2. Buy USDT on the ICONOMI platform with deposited EUR, BTC, ETH: Search for Tether (USDT) on ICONOMI platform and click the “Buy” button
3. After you have USDT balance on your ICONOMI account, you are ready to go, and you can start bidding on NFTs with your USDT.

After completing steps 1. and 2.

Start bidding (with USDT)
How to Bid on NFTs?
Bidding will be open from 18 to 27 March 2022.
Login to your ICONOMI account and follow these steps:
1. Go to the Planica NFT section.
2. Choose the NFT you would like to bid on and click on the “Bid” button You can choose among around 60 NFTs of star athletes. All funds raised during the auction will be donated back to the sport.
3. Place a bid - enter the desired bid amount in USDT and follow the onscreen instructions
  • The amount will be automatically set to the minimum markup, which is always 50 USDT more than the previous highest bid. Essentially, each bid must be at least 50 USDT higher than the previous highest one. You can also manually type in a higher amount.
  • After you place the bid, your bid status will be set to “Leading”
  • Note: You cannot cancel the bid. Bids are final if not outbid.
  • The USDT bid amount will be reserved until the end of the bidding period or until there is a higher bid on the same NFT. Meaning once you place it, you either get outbid, and the system automatically cancels the bid and USDT gets returned to your ICONOMI account portfolio, or you outbid everyone else and win the NFT.
4. Pay attention and keep your bid active
  • You can monitor your bids by clicking on the ‘My Bids’ button. There, you can see the status of your bid as well as the current bid value.
  • If someone outbids you, your bid status will be changed from “Leading” to “Outbid”. If that happens, we will notify you about it via email and a push notification on your phone. Be sure to catch the opportunity and bid again, so you reclaim your lead!
What are the bidding costs?
Bidding is free. You pay for your NFT with your reserved USDT only if you win the auction.

Claim your NFT when the bidding ends

After the bidding ends (28. March 2022), If you are the highest bidder you become the proud owner of the NFT. You will then be able to claim and transfer your NFT to another wallet on the blockchain - to your ERC721 compatible Ethereum wallet address outside the ICONOMI platform
The process of claiming of NFT will be available on the ICONOMI platform under the Planica NFT section. The sending of NFT to you will be done with the help of the ICONOMI Support Team. ICONOMI Support team will contact you with detailed instructions after the bidding completes.
