1. Winible - Tokenized wine on $ICX
2. Project Category: Development
We have updated our post about the Winible project taking into account the feedback from all the P-Reps who voted at the last CPS session. Feel free to send us as much feedback as possible.
Hello everyone, we’d like to introduce Winible, our ICON project aiming to bring tokenized wine bottles to the ecosystem.
What is the cuvée 0?
At Winible, we want to allow people to be able to invest in wine bottles without owning a cellar. We want people to be able to take advantage of the speculation of the wine market and also be able to receive their bottles at home if they decide to burn their tokens. The Winible “Cuvée zéro” collection will be composed of bottles of different rarities, each of which will be individualized.
The main purpose of this initial cuvée is to prove that our system works on the ICON blockchain in order to launch a more ambitious phase that will aim to include French winegrowers in the process.
Concerning the storage and logistics part, we know that it is a very important point, and we want to ensure a level of security and very good storage conditions.
Concerning Cuvée 0, we will take care of the storage of the bottles thanks to a professional wine cellar in order to guarantee the best possible storage conditions.
For the storage and logistics of the following “Cuvée”, we will set up a partnership system in order to guarantee to the customers that the upstream wine producers are reliable and that all the implemented logistic chain is operational.
Château la Conseillante: the wine estate we have chosen!
After many discussions with French wine estates, we are pleased to announce that the cuvée 0 Winible will consist of bottles of Château la Conseillante. Château La Conseillante is a Bordeaux wine estate, Pomerol appellation, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grape variety. The wine Château la Conseillante is a pure delight! It is a Pomerol that will amaze you with its finesse and will delight any wine lover.
Bottles rarity levels
The cuvée zero is a special historical cuvée! We want to offer rare bottles to our first users so that they can enjoy them afterward.
We are setting up a random system to spice up your investment in cuvé zero. You can discover the level of rarity just below
So we have 6 levels of rarity on our bottles, from original to diamond. The design of these bottles is not yet final and we want to rework them to offer something prettier.
On the label you can also see the qr code that certifies that this is the nft that you bought.
NFT distribution, trading
The initial distribution of the bottles will take place via a presale, we will assign each bottle to a token (and therefore a level of rarity) which will be exchanged on the craft platform, and which you will be able to “burn” in order to receive the corresponding bottle directly at home.
Each bottle can then be exchanged on Craft, the ICON NFT’s marketplace that is being built by ICX_STATION and Staky. Initially, we wanted to distribute the NFT in a different way: 40% would be sold on presale and the rest directly on Craft. But given the recent success of hashmasks, we now believe that 100% presale would be way better because it would allow the market to price the different levels of rarity and that it would be generally fairer for users.
We’ve been NFT users for a few months, and we can confirm that Ethereum users are pretty tired of those skyrocketing fees… We’re sure that ICON has a lot of opportunities in the NFT field thanks to its technology.
The pre-sale will work on a SCORE that would allocate a bottle randomly, the price would be the same for all the bottles. Also, the buyers would be able to see at any time what are the remaining levels of rarities in the contract.
Winible will be a web platform that will allow users to check any infos about the cuvée 0, to visualize all their Winible NFT and of course, to redeem their tokens!
The burning mechanism will allow anyone to redeem his NFT and to get his bottles delivered at home. For the NFT experts, this system is quite similar to Unisocks collectible. Our platform will allow the users to track their bottles and get support if necessary.
As specified earlier, this project is meant to serve as Proof of Concept for our long-term plan. The cuvée 0 will serve as an example for wine domains that the NFT market is full of opportunities for the product of wine that is perfectly fitting its purpose: a redeemable product with a fluctuating value.
We’re convinced that the NFT market will sooner or later disrupt the wine market and we want to bring it to life on ICON. After this first mission, Winible will focus on helping wine domains to sell their product on a decentralized marketplace such as Craft and this cuvée 0 will serve as an example to prove the interest that people have in this concept.
We’re looking for feedback and to know how the community is feeling about the project!
Staky offered to sponsor our CPS but we’d love to know if any other PReps is interested in assisting us in our goal! Please let us know below
So, what do you think about it? Do you think that this NFT project could be a good fit for ICON ecosystem?

6. Funding Amount Requested
This project has various costs: Salaries, long-term storage, logistics, stock purchasing, etc. We will cover the entire costs related to the purchase of the bottles, logistics and storage but we would need the help of the CPS to fund:
Salaries: 2 * 3300$ * 3 month = 19.800$
