Are land plots a form of digital asset?

Yes. Since we’re geared for mass adoption (accommodating non-blockchain users), land plots are sold in the form of “soft-NFTs”, and landowners can convert or “mint” them into NFTs on the Ethereum Mainnet blockchain. This can be done anytime, and we will not charge fees for the conversion; landowners will only have to pay for the gas fees required in order to perform the transaction on the Ethereum network.
Landowners can choose to hold their land for capital gain and receive continued income, or they can choose to sell them on secondary marketplaces anytime.

What happens if I do not convert my soft-NFT land plots to NFTs?

That’s fine! You will still enjoy earning passive rewards automatically, in Gin, that will be credited to your account. If you wish to sell your GOALAND on secondary marketplaces such as OpenSea, you will have to mint your land plots as NFTs on the Ethereum Mainnet blockchain. This can be done anytime, and we will not charge fees for the conversion; landowners will only have to pay for the gas fees required in order to perform the transaction on the Ethereum network.). The process is almost immediate.
Once you mint your GOALAND NFT, you would have redeemed your soft-NFT, so your soft-NFT will not exist anymore.
