Cranium Club is an NFT project consisting of 5,555 unique, healthy, algorithmically generated brains stored with a proof of ownership on the Solana blockchain. They care about improving and learning about mental health.
The crypto and NFT space operates 24/7 with real gains and losses that can be at times, life-changing. Being expected to constantly grind can send you into an early grave and kill your mojo – whether you’re an artist, developer, collector or trader. Our brain controls everything, from clicking the mint button to how we breathe and digest food. Yet, we understand little about how it works. As NFTs, crypto and metaverses gain mainstream adoption, we want to create a positive space that can equip members with the tools and knowledge to deal with mental health issues and promote holistic wellbeing.
Ownership of a brain opens access to 1-1 mental health coaching sessions, brain-healthy events on Discord and participation in the plan to create the first 3D mental health office in the metaverse.
Every mint will help fund the mental health coaches that we have to hire. With a full sellout, we’ll be hiring 5-6 full-time therapists after mint, which will equate to a load capacity of ~560 appointments (30 min) per week. From there, we’ll be scaling up or down as needed. Our goal is for everyone to have the chance to a coaching session at least once a month.
Utility will be fully developed and rolled out 2-3 weeks after mint. Until then, we will be offering many events for the community to get to know each other.
All mental coach therapists will require at least a master’s degree in psychology or a related field. Licensed coaches will be chosen over unlicensed ones. Every mental coach will be thoroughly vetted by our team to ensure that we find the best for our holders.
The main difference between mental health therapists and mental health coaches, is that mental health coaches do not specialize in complex clinical problems.
Mental Health Coaching includes but is not limited to – managing emotions, challenge negative thinking patterns, improve relationship skills, reducing stress, reducing anxiety, leadership coaching, and behavioral coaching. Coaching is future and action oriented and should never be utilized for complex clinical problems or emergencies.
No. If our mental coaches, our community or you yourself suspect that you have a complex or serious mental health issue, we’ll recommend that you get treatment outside of this project.
There are many regulations around offering “therapy” due to licensing and governing bodies in the US. These regulations limit licensed therapists to offering services in ONLY the state that they’re licensed in. With mental health coaching, we can avoid those limiting regulations, avoid any future complications and open up these services internationally to holders.
We expect the mint proceeds to provide us a runtime of 3-4 years after mint. After that, we’ll need to rely on royalties to proceed. 12k sol of secondary volume should cover a full year of therapists! As a holder, you’ll get access to the mental health coaching sessions throughout the lifetime of project.
Not when you do the math! The average cost of therapy is $100-$200 PER SESSION. An NFT for 1.5 sol (~$270) that can give you at least 12 sessions a year would result in over $2000 in savings. And that’s just for the first year! The NFTs can also be gifted. All holders will have access no matter how they’ve attained their NFT.
Mint funds and royalties from secondary sales will be allocated as such – 60% towards paying mental health coaches, 25% towards our core team’s salary, 7.5% towards marketing, and 7.5% towards funding our community wallet.
