This is an opportunity for deeper connection. A chance to open yourself up and tap into, or rediscover, your individual truths guided by the shared experience of music. Carlita’s ultimate goal is to translate the collective energy of moments into sonic experiences that unite and inspire people, drawing them together into an open-hearted, global community. 

Carlita’s multiple creative sensibilities drive her artistic endeavors and collaborations. Whether she’s creating as a DJ, producer, perfumer, or otherwise, she follows her senses and intuition—a mindful attention to energy that she aims to share with the world, following the motto after which she named her token: $LITA, Love Is The Answer.

Do you also want to engage with the world with your full self and see what you find? The $LITA token is your key to accessing others seeking the same, a community of which you can be a founding member. 

This whitepaper outlines the specific ways that you can take part in Carlita’s world. $LITA is the means. Just follow the signs.

1. The $LITA Token

A. ABOUT CARLITA

“Experiencing and sharing peoples’ energy through music is my main source of inspiration.

Ultimately, Carlita has always used music as a multifaceted channel, as a means of expression, energy exchange, and deeper connection. She sees this foray into cryptocurrency as another creative collaboration, one in which she can bring others along on her artistic journey.

For Carlita, music wasn’t something she discovered. Rather, she felt that music was assigned to her at birth. From growing up listening to Brazilian music in her native Turkey, to studying cello at London’s Royal Academy of Music, to exploring the business and editorial sides of the industry at record labels and magazines, Carlita never wanted to box herself in. Eventually, she embraced DJing and has zigzagged around the globe, gracing the world’s most influential stages and finding immense inspiration in all the experiences and people she’s met along the way. 

Known for the unexpected, Carlita has never confined herself to a singular sound or genre, carving out a unique space as an artist willing to explore and experiment. She prides herself on  reading the energy of the moment, a space, the crowd, and other elements to create full sensory experiences for everyone present. As she explains it, she finds a sound that goes with the energy, bringing her classical training and sensual, playful approach to electronic music. 

Though Carlita’s imagination can be sparked by a variety of things—books, subway musicians, a singular sound that grabs her and won’t let go—her creative partnership with DJ Tennis has been a constant source of inspiration from the moment they met. It solidified her belief in her own intuition and the power of sharing energy with those around her, which helped lead to other artistic avenues outside the bounds of music alone. Carlita’s experiential brand Senza Fine unites fashion, parties, and music into multisensory events, but also—in the true spirit of Carlita—has a perfume debut on the horizon as well as a collaboration with Turkish lifestyle brand Les Benjamins.

No matter what artistic channel Carlita taps into, her overarching goal is to create spaces and experiences that help people connect to their own individual truths, to feel their full spectrum of senses, and find community with others. It’s in this spirit that Carlita has created her own currency, to offer everyone the opportunity to find more fulfillment and connection in their own lives.

Do you also want to engage more with your full self and see what you find? Carlita is welcoming you into her creative journey through $LITA, so you too can experience and play in her world.

B. WHAT IS THE $LITA TOKEN

What you need to access and play in Carlita’s universe is $LITA, the official currency of Carlita’s world. $LITA is an ERC20 token issued on the Ethereum blockchain.

As you follow Carlita on her musical and spiritual journey around the world, you will earn more coins, engage more personally with Carlita, and gain a more influential role in the building of the broader Carlita community. The purpose of $LITA is to guide the community toward Carlita’s vision for connection and fulfillment, while simultaneously empowering its members to become stakeholders and founders of the Carlita world.

The first and biggest token holders are key founding residents of Carlita’s community. Prior to the launch of the zerozero decentralized marketplace, claims on $LITA tokens will be accessible for anyone to earn through the P00LS launchpad and subsequently will be issued on Ethereum.

On your journey through Carlita’s universe, you will unlock exclusive access and experiences as you gather more $LITA tokens. Follow Carlita on Instagram and Discord to learn more about how to create your tailored token experience.

C. P00LS X $LITA

The $LITA token will be issued by Carlita in collaboration with P00LS, and launched exclusively on the P00LS platform.

Traditional spheres of influence—from the international music scene, to Hollywood, to Wall Street, to Silicon Valley—are converging more now than ever before, forming a new marketplace with creators and their audiences at the center. 

Enter P00LS: the world’s largest decentralized exchange for creator cryptocurrencies, on which people earn, buy, and sell creator tokens. 

Think of it like the NYSE, but for coins like $LITA, issued on the Ethereum blockchain. P00LS partners with creators to issue and distribute their tokens, leveraging its best-in-class, gamified system to engage the Carlita community and incentivize them to earn $LITA, all while more closely aligning creators to their audiences.  

P00LS is the premier platform that empowers talent to create their own cryptocurrency, which represents the value of their personal brands, while enabling millions of community members to buy, sell, and trade in these currencies.

P00LS is a decentralized protocol, built and governed by holders of $00, the governance token for the P00LS ecosystem. Learn more about the $00 token here.

$LITA is issued and distributed to the Carlita community on the P00LS platform.

Through the P00LS launchpad, fans, followers and members of the Carlita community can earn free $LITA tokens by, for example:

• Sharing information about Carlita, her music, content, and the $LITA token on social media

• Learning more about Carlita, her vision, and the causes she champions by, for example, subscribing to her newsletter

• Inviting others to earn $LITA

Once the genesis launch period ends, $LITA will be listed and made available for trading on the P00LS Marketplace in early 2022.

2. $LITA Use Cases

Earning and acquiring $LITA tokens means taking part in a multi-layered, sensorial journey to discover more about the world and yourself, taking cues from Carlita’s energy-driven approach to life. Each $LITA use case allows you to get closer to Carlita and her community.

The value of $LITA is linked to supply and demand only. The price of the token is determined largely by the creator’s influence—in general, the more influential the creator, the higher the price of their token—and through its various use cases. The following use cases will be deployed from launch, and are subject to change as the $LITA community grows and evolves.

Carlita will regularly elevate the most engaged members of her community, meaning those holding the most tokens, and offer them special recognition and access.

A. CONTENT

After official launch in 2022, $LITA token holders will have access to specific exclusive content from Carlita to fully immerse themselves in her creative universe. This includes access to her newest music, including unreleased edits and tracks, as well as upcoming content updates. Carlita’s token-holding community will be able to view several of her iconic sets, including Mayan Warrior Sun Rise, and gain access to gated channels on her Discord server for exclusive performances. Carlita will also welcome those holding the most $LITA tokens into her remote studio sessions, offering unprecedented access to her creative process before its public release.

Beyond music, $LITA token holders will have exclusive and primary access to Carlita’s fashion collaborations and artist merchandise, as well as exclusive photo and video content from Carlita. 

Carlita’s community will also have the ability to earn specific status and minting rights to NFTs created by Carlita herself. More details will be revealed on Carlita’s Instagram and Discord in the coming months.

B. ACCESS & EXPERIENCES

The $LITA token is a means to creating meaningful and deeper connections through shared positive energy via access to and experiences within Carlita’s community. To that end, token holders can purchase tickets to Carlita shows with $LITA, while gaining access to a selection of exclusive experiences, backstage passes to Carlita events, and other offerings at related live shows and events. Furthermore, general admission ticket holders will be able to claim $LITA at select performances. In addition, every token holder actively acting as a promoter or booking agent of Carlita and/or $LITA, will be offered $LITA coins.

Token holders will have exclusive and preferred access to Senza Fine experiential events, such as immersive art exhibits and curated collaboration showings, as well as content and product debuts, including fragrance and fashion releases. $LITA token holders are also afforded unprecedented access to Carlita herself. Perks may include Cameo-style videos or one-on-one advisory sessions tapping into Carlita’s wide-ranging expertise on anything from music production, to meditation, to cryptocurrency/NFTs, to opportunities and career development for emerging artists, and more. 

One of Carlita’s biggest sources of inspiration is travel and the human connections she makes along the way. Fittingly, hosting and food are incredibly important to her, and so Carlita will be welcoming the biggest $LITA token holders to intimate dinners.

Meaningful interaction entails meaningful collaboration. The $LITA token entitles holders to social follows and promotion of requested videos, accounts, causes, and profiles through Carlita’s official channels, as well as access to exclusive creative assets. For example, token holders will be able to share a photo using the Bucket Hat Instagram filter designed by Carlita’s team. As founding members of the Carlita community, $LITA token holders will have the ability to suggest creative collaborations by submitting proposals directly to Carlita’s team for review. Token holders will also have special early access to coin drops from sponsors of Carlita shows. Finally, Carlita will open her own cryptocurrency and NFT fund to $LITA token holders, including access to certain allocations or returns from that fund.

3. $LITA Economics

A. Distribution

$LITA is Carlita’s official Web3 currency. It is an ERC-20 token built on Ethereum, allowing for total compatibility with the entire ecosystem. The total supply of $LITA tokens is 100,000,000 and is set to be completely distributed over the course of 5 years.

B. Allocation

The $LITA token is distributed to Carlita as a creator and Carlita’s community members, such as fans and followers.

The allocation structure of the $LITA token is as follows:

Creator

Carlita’s team will receive 10% of the total supply of the creator token $LITA. This allocation of tokens will be vested linearly with a one year lockup and a 4 year schedule from issuance. Creator allocations can be used as the creator desires.

Creator Ecosystem

The ecosystem surrounding the creator, including key partners and companies, will receive an allocation of token in order to integrate the token into their services and build utility for the token. 

Airdrop to Community

Fans can earn $LITA tokens on p00ls.io by completing certain actions on the P00LS Launchpad. Incentive mechanisms to earn tokens will change over time and new token drops will be announced on the P00LS launchpad. Other earning mechanisms will be introduced in the future. 

Community Treasury

$LITA token holders will have access to a treasury of $LITA coins. $LITA holders will be able to vote with their token on how this treasury is put to use. This treasury will be used to incentivize community growth and positive behaviors within the $LITA community. 

Launch Partners

$LITA token will be allocated in part to the launch partners for the token, including P00LS. 

Liquidity

$LITA token will be used to create an initial liquidity pool for $LITA on the zerozero DEX and to provide liquidity on centralized exchanges.

C. Timeline

A simplified timeline for Carlita’s token can be found below

1. $LITA Launch

A genesis drop for $LITA took place on December 1st 2021 at https://launchpad.P00LS.io/ before the coin is minted and before a market is made for the coin.

At this stage, anyone was able to earn $LITA tokens for free by tweeting, posting on Instagram and learning things about Carlita’s purpose among other actions. These tokens are held in the launchpad by P00LS for those that participated in the drop until the launch of the marketplace.

2. Marketplace Launch: Late 2022

In the months following the first drop, the $LITA token will be minted. Earners of the $LITA token on Genesis Drop will be able to claim tokens to their Ethereum Wallet if they choose to do so once the marketplace launches. $LITA will later be listed on the zerozero marketplace.

To create the $LITA/$00 pair, 10% of total supply will be used to supply liquidity. 5,000,000 $LITA tokens will be mined against 00 through a modified auction mechanism. Once this process is complete, anyone will be able to buy and sell $LITA tokens against $00 in a fully decentralized way. 

The creator allocation, the treasury allocation, will begin once the token is minted.

Further, DeFi incentives such as staking, liquidity mining, and trading incentives will be voted on by the community and will begin once the $LITA/$00 pool is made.

The zerozero decentralized exchange is a decentralized marketplace for social tokens issued by creators and brands and for other cryptocurrencies, including the $00 token. All tokens in the zerozero decentralized exchange, including $LITA, can be traded for one another. 

3. Post-Marketplace Launch: Late 2022

After listing on the zerozero marketplace, $LITA will become the currency of Carlita’s ecosystem. Major holders of $LITA will have the greatest access to Carlita content, perks, events and more.

Launchpad drops and new incentives will take place frequently on the P00LS launchpad and tokens will be up for grabs for anyone. Carlita’s Community Treasury allocation will be distributed linearly over the course of the issuance period. Any DeFi incentives such as staking will be decided by the community and will take effect on the zerozero DEX for the determined period.
