The Meyers Token Administration Team has developed this set of guidelines based on a collaboration with the international community of volunteers, treasure hunters, and geocachers operating since September 2000. Together, they review and adapt guidelines as the world changes and their games evolve. Taking these guidelines into consideration is important to protect the treasure hunt and the environment in which we play. With these guidelines, we aim to balance the needs and rights of the treasure hunting community, land managers, and the environment to ensure that treasure hunting can be enjoyed for years to come.
We encourage you to actively participate in a treasure hunt for a Meyers Token “Land Drop” before hiding one. The more types of treasure hunts you learn about, the better you will understand how to create an enjoyable experience for other treasure hunters. Find additional guidance about hiding Land Drops, or what exactly a Land Drop is, later in this document.
For publication on the Meyers Token Website, user placed Land Drops must be submitted using the official listing form found at https://meyerstoken.com/treasuremaps
Treasure placers will submit a link to their NFT (Non-Fungible Token) Treasure Map for listing. The balance of the wallet will be publicly posted to ensure to any treasure hunter that there is a prize at the end of their journey. The Meyers Token administration team will sort all NFT Treasure Maps on the official map listing page by the balance of the wallets that have been submitted.
The Meyers Token Administration Team and community members are people who, like you, volunteer their time to support the idea of treasure hunting and help the Meyers Token vision come to fruition.
The Meyers Token Administration Team is not in any way responsible or liable for your Land Drop or any Land Drop that has been placed by the community. All aspects of a Land Drop and it's placement are the placer's responsibility, and the placer may be held liable for any resulting consequences.
Land Drops are free tokens dropped in a physical location that anyone can search for and claim ownership of. A Land Drop is similar to an airdrop, however instead of claiming the Land Drop via digital means, one must solve clues, then set out and find the Land Drop via physical means.
A Land Drop is defined as:
The process works as follows:
A cryptocurrency airdrop is a marketing effort that involves sending coins or tokens to wallet addresses in order to promote and create awareness. Various amounts of the cryptocurrency are sent to the wallets of active members of the blockchain community for free or in return for a small service, such as joining a discord server or providing an email address.
A cryptocurrency Land Drop has never been held in the history of blockchain marketing before. Meyers Token is the first and only project as of 07/01/2021 to adopt this unique and fun method of spreading enthusiasm for cryptocurrency and encouraging adventure for all. We foresee many other cryptocurrencies adopting a similar Land Drop promotion for their project, and Meyers Token is proud to be the pioneer of this new worldwide movement.
All you really have to do is hunt for treasure.
Some Land Drops will be large, some will be small, but each will be fun to find. The Official Land Drops placed by the Meyers Token Administration Team will contain between 1 and 100,000 Meyers Tokens each. Land Drops will range in difficulty to find depending on the amount of tokens loaded on each. The larger the balance, the harder it will be to solve the NFT Treasure Map and follow clues to uncover the GPS Coordinates of that Land Drop
A treasure map contains instructions, cryptic or not, on how to find a Land Drop. A treasure map begins as an NFT and after a person decodes it will result in GPS coordinates that that person could use to find either a Land Drop or a clue that eventually leads to a Land Drop.
Pro Tip: At first glance, the NFT Treasure Map should not look like a treasure map.
NFT Treasure Maps are the most exciting part of the treasure hunt. It can include any amount of clues within. Some will be easy, meaning as soon as you decode the initial entry clue from the NFT Treasure Map, you instantly have the GPS Coordinates to the treasure. Some will be more complex and difficult, meaning after you solve the initial entry NFT clue, you may have additional clues to solve in order to obtain the GPS Coordinates of the Land Drop
All local laws and land management policies apply. This refers to both the placement of a Land Drop and the journey, clues, puzzles, etc. that your map requires to reach it. Do not place a Land Drop in a location that requires or encourages treasure hunters to trespass on private land, or enter areas where access is marked as prohibited.
Land Drops should only be placed in publicly accessible locations on public land. Placing a Land Drop on private property is not permitted due to the difficulties and dangers that arise with encouraging the public to access private land for the purpose of treasure hunting.
Even if you are certain that treasure hunting is permitted on particular public land, make sure that you follow any rules or guidelines set forth by the agency who is responsible for the management of said public land before you place a Land Drop. It is your responsibility to get permission from the agency or association that manages the public land if applicable. If we receive complaints or become aware that a Land Drop is in an unlawful location, it will be disabled and removed from the list on the Meyers Token website.
Land Drops and instructions within NFT Treasure Maps should be purposefully placed and appear creative upon delivery. Take your time and be deliberate when leaving clues and hiding your Meyers Tokens. If done thoughtfully, this will be the most fun you have during the entire experience of hosting a Land Drop. Use your imagination, envision the entire treasure hunt from the point the initial entry clue is solved until the final GPS Coordinates have been revealed. Imagine the places it will require a treasure hunter to go, the feats they will have to accomplish in order to solve your map. Doing so will ultimately give you an advantage when choosing how and where to hide your clues and treasure.
Please check with any applicable public land management agencies that govern the public land where you intend on digging to determine rules and regulations before you break ground in that area. You must obtain explicit permission from the applicable public land managing agency before digging to place a Land Drop. As a Land Drop placer, you are responsible for finding out if permission is required, and for determining who to contact to obtain permission.
To keep the Land Drop in proper condition, the Land Drop placer should:
Land Drop placers should maintain the integrity of their Land Drops. Regular maintenance, even if only bi-annually, will ensure that it will have the best chance of withstanding the test of time.
Rule number one is to have fun. If you’re not having fun you’re doing it wrong
Think of the longevity of your Land Drop location.
Make your Land Drop a challenge worth seeking, cater to a higher level or masterful way of thinking and only make it as easy as you want for seekers to solve.
The art of encryption and encoding a message into a png, gif, jpg, mp4, etc. is an art form in itself. Learn the different ways that you can encode your NFT Treasure Map with clues. You can be innovative, and create new ways of hiding information. The point is to make it fun.
Do not place Land Drops in restricted, private, prohibited, or otherwise inappropriate locations. Some areas have additional regulations and laws that further restrict Land Drop placement. The Meyers Token Administration Team may permanently delete your map from the website if any of the following is reported.
It is highly advised that you store Land Drops in secure weatherproof containers that will stand the test of time and anything mother nature throws at it.
To avoid confusion or suspicion if a Land Drop you placed is found by a non-treasure hunter, try taking these steps to prevent confusion or theft:
At all Land Drops, there must be a pre-loaded Meyers Token wallet for treasure hunters to be rewarded upon finding it. The wallet should be:
Treasure Hunting can be a family friendly and outdoor friendly adventure. Land Drop contents must be suitable for all ages and suitable for the outdoors.
Do not include any of the following items within a Land Drop:
Land Drop NFT Treasure Maps can be used to promote an agenda or highlight a cause. We encourage making a theme for any determined number of wallets in the good name of charity or community service. Treasure hunting is a fun experience that can double as a platform for promoting a cause.
Land Drops should be difficult to find due to the cryptic nature of the NFT Treasure Map used to initiate the treasure hunt. Here are some cryptic tools & technologies that you may find often used among Meyers Token placers:
These are just a few of the tools you can use to encode or encrypt the GPS Coordinates of a Land Drop. You always start your very first clue as an NFT. We recommend using AirNFTs on the Binance Smart Chain, it is a great way to mint your NFT quickly, easily, and on a budget friendly platform. (What is an NFT?) Be creative but be careful. Do not transpose numbers or coded information. Take your time and leave an accurate, exciting experience for whoever decides to attempt to solve your NFT Treasure Map.
Treasure hunting can be a family-friendly activity enjoyed as a group or all on your own. Bring your family together to solve real life treasure maps and reap the rewards that await at the end of your collaborative experience.
The two pieces of software that the Meyers Token Administration Team recommends you download to your personal computer or mobile device are Discord and a BEP-20 Wallet (Trust Wallet, Math Wallet, etc.).
An NFT Treasure Map clue may be hidden on a USB Drive which may require you to download information to a device in order to solve it. In that case, these are some things to be aware of:
Some treasure map placers purchase a URL in an attempt to direct more traffic to their NFT Treasure Map. You may forward a purchased URL to your NFT Treasure Map page on the Meyers Token website.
Land Drops will be categorized and labeled according to the Meyers Token balance contained on the Land Drop. Land Drops will be sorted as follows:
The idea is to make the higher balance wallets harder to find than the lower balance wallets. For example, It should be easier to solve NFT Treasure Map clues for a Shrimp wallet than it is for a Shark wallet, and it should be harder to solve clues for a Dolphin wallet than it is for an Octopus wallet, and so on.
There are no changes that can be made post-publication. Make sure the information within your NFT Treasure Map is correct prior to minting it. You must ensure the accuracy and integrity of the information contained within your NFT Treasure Map. Once you mint something into the blockchain, you may only delete it and start over, but you cannot change or edit an NFT. Take your time and think out each step thoroughly while creating and minting an NFT Treasure Map.
We want to give our community the best opportunity to find a Land Drop. In order to do so, we need to give both the Meyers Token Administration Team, as well as community members, time to place Land Drops and devise NFT Treasure Maps for submission. This is a deflationary token, and while some wallets might be found quickly, others may not be located for decades (if not longer), making them even more valuable over time. 2025 is the beginning of a long journey into the future
Meyers Token was soft-launched on May 1st, 2021 and is still in the early stage of growth and adoption. There is only room for improvement of overall market value. Buying Meyers Token to hold it until a future date would be a respectable investment, and can be considered an early bird opportunity. Take comfort knowing each investor is strengthening the number of tokens locked behind NFT Treasure Maps with each Land Drop placed. Taking into consideration Meyers Token’s deflationary nature, your investment will gain value and interest as it sits over the years.
If you are a business owner and have submitted an NFT Treasure Map, you may want to consider how you could help contribute to the global adoption of Meyers Token. If you encourage the use of this token in its everyday capacity, the more valuable the wallets you have hidden will become. Ways you can influence the everyday use of Meyers Token at your establishment are:
