“I’m building a world for those who come next, an atmosphere defined and structured by architecture,” 

-Hugo Comte

Nikita is the unreachable absolute symbol of the future, in continuous transition. Nikita has a neutral name, no gender, no age. It is the imaginary muse that Hugo Comte is endlessly trying to reach by creating a world and an atmosphere, independent of any time or era, defined by aesthetic plenitude, organized within an architectural structure and driven by his unmatched multi-disciplinary vision. Nikita is evolving in a structure and an atmosphere created by Hugo Comte that define the way she moves, grows and interacts with her world. Nikita is constantly redefined, in a continuous relationship with the environment, structured by an ever-evolving architecture, forever future-bound.

Comte’s multiple creative sensibilities drive his artistic endeavors. Whether he is creating as an imagemaker, a fashion photographer, a creative director for the music imagery of pop music’s biggest acts such as Dua Lipa and Caroline Polachek, or as a filmmaker, he follows his intuition and uses his artistic media and meticulous aesthetic research as means to his end: creating a world as a whole, a mix of creativities that tend to the future, a world in transition across mediums where he continuously tries to reach Nikita.

The Nikita world is an eternal draft, where the journey is an end in itself - the continuous bid for improvement. This celebration of the eternal transition is the way for satisfaction: what matters is not the destination, it’s what you build and discover along the way. 

Do you want to engage more deeply with the Nikita world and see what you find? Hugo Comte is inviting you to create the architecture for the eternal draft of Nikita alongside him, across mediums, eras and dimensions. The $NIKITA token is your ticket to participate in this aesthetic, artistic and philosophical quest and access others seeking the same, a community of which you can be a founding member. 

Hugo Comte’s ultimate goal is to create a world for successive generations and to foster his community along the way. He follows this aim first through artistic production, now through his own currency, $NIKITA.

This whitepaper outlines the specific ways that token holders can take part in Hugo Comte’s world. $NIKITA is the means. Just follow the signs. 

1. The $NIKITA Token

A. About Hugo Comte

Hugo Comte has always used artistic production as a means of connecting with an upper dimension, with the future. He sees this foray into cryptocurrency as another creative endeavor, one in which he can bring others along on his artistic journey.

Comte never wanted to box himself in. As an architecture student in Paris, he explored photography, graffiti and sculpture and paused his life to reflect on the meaning of art. Driven by his sharp vision and an extensive knowledge of 80s and 90s photography, he created fashion images for the most influential outlets and brands such as Vogue USA, Vogue Italia, Document Journal, Interview Magazine, BVLGARI, Saint Laurent, Porsche, Louis Vuitton, Nodelato and Marc Jacobs, and directed the creation of Dua Lipa’s and Caroline Polachek’s albums imagery. You can find him revealing his dreamlike world in his own photography book, a hybrid retrospective of his art featuring pictures of era-defining icons including Naomi Campbell, Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid. Comte embraced photography and continuously explored new art forms, meticulously shaping his unique aesthetic universe and zigzagging across the globe, following his intuition and always breaking free from constraints. For him, creative freedom is the ultimate artistic goal. 

No matter what artistic channel Comte taps into, his overarching goal is to create a world defined by eternal transition, a projection to the future inspired by Nikita. It is in this spirit that Hugo Comte has created $NIKITA, to offer his community the opportunity to access his artistic universe, to compose together this eternal draft towards the future and to experience the happiness one gets from enjoying the ride, empowered by a community seeking the same.

Hugo Comte is welcoming you into his creative journey through $NIKITA, so you can also experience and move through his world. 

1. The $NIKITA Token

B. What is the $NIKITA token

What you need to access and move through Hugo Comte’s universe and artistic community is $NIKITA, the official currency of Hugo Comte’s world. $NIKITA is an ERC20 token issued on the Ethereum blockchain.

As you follow Hugo Comte on his artistic journey around the world, you will earn more coins, engage more personally with Hugo Comte, and gain a more influential role in the building of the broader Hugo Comte community. The purpose of $NIKITA is to enable his community to navigate Hugo Comte’s sharp artistic vision, while simultaneously empowering its members to become stakeholders and founders of the Hugo Comte universe.

The first and biggest token holders are key founding residents of Hugo Comte’s community. Prior to the launch of the P00LS decentralized marketplace (“The P00LS Marketplace”), claims on $NIKITA tokens will be accessible for anyone to earn through the P00LS launchpad and subsequently will be issued on Ethereum.

On your journey through Hugo Comte’s universe, you will unlock exclusive access and experiences as you gather more $NIKITA tokens. Follow Hugo Comte and P00LS on social media and Discord to learn more about how to create your tailored token experience and to stay up to date on new token drops.

C. P00LS x $NIKITA

The $NIKITA token will be issued by Hugo Comte 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. 

P00LS partners with creators to issue and distribute their tokens, leveraging its best-in-class, gamified system to engage the Hugo Comte community and incentivize them to earn $NIKITA, 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.

$NIKITA is issued and distributed to the Hugo Comte community on the P00LS platform.

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

  • Sharing information about Hugo Comte, his music, content, and the $NIKITA token on social media
  • Learning more about Hugo Comte, his vision, and the causes he champions by, for example, subscribing to his newsletter
  • Inviting others to earn $NIKITA

For a few months, the token will only be available for people to earn it for free through the P00LS Launchpad, so members of the community have the opportunity to show their engagement and be rewarded for it. This period is called the genesis launch. Once the genesis launch period ends, $NIKITA will be listed and made available for trading on the P00LS Marketplace in early 2022.

C. Timeline

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

  1. $NIKITA Launch

A genesis drop for $NIKITA happened February 2022 on https://launchpad.P00LS.io/ before the coin is minted and before a market is made for the coin.

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

  1. Marketplace Launch: Mid 2022

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

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

The creator allocation and 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 $NIKITA/$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 $NIKITA, can be traded for one another. 

  1. Post-Marketplace Launch: Mid 2022

After listing on the zerozero marketplace, the following allocations and rewards will be in effect:

  • Hugo’s allocation and the $NIKITA Community Treasury allocation will be distributed linearly over the specified vesting period.
  • Launchpad drops and new incentives will take place frequently on the P00LS launchpad and tokens will be up for grabs for anyone.
  • DeFi Incentives will be voted on and activated by the community.
