Information about the Intelligence Staking Event - FAQs #2
Category 1: Tokens & Rewards Credit
  1. 1.
    How will the rewards be distributed during the Intelligence Staking Event?
The Rewards are categorized below:
(a) Shared Intelligence Training
  1. 1.
    Shared Intelligence Training Participation Reward - Every staked Pod, irrespective of its Intelligence level, is eligible to receive this reward if it was staked before the beginning of the Shared Intelligence Training. While we recommend that a user participates at least once using each one of their Pods during the Shared Intelligence Training, it is not mandatory.
  2. 2.
    Training Session Rewards - These rewards are distributed to those who participate in Shared Intelligence Training sessions (battles). For each training session, the winner of the session gets 10 ALI Credits, and the loser gets 1 ALI Credit.
(b) Individual Intelligence Training
  1. 1.
    Individual Intelligence Training Participation Reward - Every staked Pod, irrespective of its Intelligence level, is eligible to receive this reward if it was staked before the beginning of the Shared Intelligence Training or the Individual Intelligence Training. During the Individual Intelligence Training, every Pod must be individually trained to receive this reward.
  2. 2.
    Rewards Multiplier - Each staked Pod, based on its Intelligence levels, gets a Rewards Multiplier when they are trained during the Individual Intelligence Training. The Rewards Multiplier will apply on the total accumulated Participation Rewards for each Pod, and the number of the multiplier will vary based on the Intelligence Level of the Pod. During the Individual Intelligence Training, every Pod must be individually trained to receive this reward.
The rewards timeline is as follows:
2. How long is the Intelligence Staking Event? What are its key dates?
Please see the timeline graphic above. To summarize, the Intelligence Staking event will last for 40 days and 40 nights - i.e. from the 11th of November to the 21st of December. Shared Intelligence Training is from November 18th - December 9th. Individual Intelligence Training is from December 9th - December 21st.
3. How many rewards do I need to upgrade the Intelligence level of my pod?
While the exact numbers will be shared later, it is safe to assume that the rewards received by each staked pod during the Individual Intelligence Training will be sufficient to advance the Intelligence level of that Pod to its next Intelligence level.
4. What is the conversion ratio of ALI Credits to ALI tokens?
This will be disclosed at a later date.
5. What is the cap for ALI Credits earned per user?
Currently there is no cap for the ALI Credits that can be rewarded to a user, however, you can only have 5 battles per hour. The hour window starts at the beginning of your first battle. This might change over the course of the Intelligence Staking Event.
As of now, every user is receiving ALI Credits because the ERC-20 ALI Token is not in distribution yet. Once the Token Distribution Event occurs, we will redeem the ALI Credits for the ALI Tokens.
6. Will the amounts of ALI Credits be reset?
As of now, we have no plans to reset the ALI Credits earned by the community. We reserve the right to terminate an individual community member's account if they have utilized unfair means (scripts, bots, etc.) to accrue ALI Credits.
7. What about the people who are using scripts or bots to game the system?
As per our Terms of Service, available on https://alethea.ai/terms, we have the right to terminate a user’s account (which includes their credits) and will exercise that right if needed. While we do not plan to exercise this right liberally, it will also be unfair to the community to not terminate the accounts that try to utilize bots, scripts, and other obviously fraudulent methods to game the system.
8. In order to have enough credits to increase a Level 1 Pod to Level 2 status, how many training sessions need to be done per day?
While the exact numbers will be shared later, it is safe to assume that the rewards received by each staked pod during the Individual Intelligence Training will be sufficient to advance the Intelligence level of that Pod to its next Intelligence level.
Any rewards earned during the Shared Intelligence Training can be seen as a bonus amount that can further help the Pod in a variety of ways, including further upgrading its intelligence level.
9. When will a detailed chart on the requirements to go from Level 1 to Level 2, and from Level 2 to Level 3 etc, be released?
We will share the final details as soon we are able to do so. It is not an easy calculation to make, and we appreciate your patience in this regard.
10. Elaborate on the tokenomics of ALI Token and how would you keep it non-inflationary if people are using scripts and bots?
The ALI Token is non-inflationary through immutable on-chain smart contracts and it is incorrect to assume that since we are giving away generous rewards, or if someone has utilized unfair methods to accrue ALI Credits, that it will translate into inflation of the ALI Token supply. The training experience itself has also been gradually made more difficult and various loopholes have been fixed to avoid any gaming of the system.
There are 10 Billion ALI Tokens in existence, and while it is heartening for us to see that a lot of early supporters have been able to earn rewards, we have various mechanisms and policies in place to ensure that no one is able to earn an undeserved amount of rewards.
11. What is the benefit of staking multiple pods instead of just staking one?
The rewards that you are receiving for battling are "Training Session" rewards. However, every staked Pod is also eligible for "Participation Rewards" during both the Shared Intelligence Training and the Individual Intelligence Training.
This means that if a person has staked 10 Pods during the entire Intelligence Staking Event, they will receive 10 times the Participation Rewards as compared with a person who has staked 1 Pod.
12. Why are all pods receiving the same rewards during shared training?
Shared Intelligence Training is helping improve the overall Intelligence of Noah’s Ark Intelligent Metaverse, and not shaping the Intelligence of any one particular pod. That is why during the Shared Intelligence Training Event, all Pods are entitled to the same Participation Reward.
The differences in rewards for intelligence levels kick in during the Individual Intelligence Training.
13. What is the difference between Shared Intelligence Training and Individual Intelligence Training?
To put it simply, Shared Intelligence Training is not focused on training any one individual Pod.
Shared Intelligence Training utilizes gamified dataset creation mechanisms by incentivizing the Alethea AI community to contribute conversational datasets in a competitive setting. These datasets will help the AI Engine of the Noah's Ark to improve its intelligence and become more informed about that particular conversational context.
Individual Intelligence Training will enable users to shape the personality traits of any one particular pod. We will share details of Individual Intelligence Training shortly.
14. How long can we earn rewards during the Shared Intelligence Training - for example, can we train for 40 days? Does it matter which Pod I train?
You can earn rewards during the entire period of Shared Intelligence Training. The Shared Intelligence Training will occur from the 18th of November to the 9th of December.
The staking of just one Pod entitles a user to participate in the Shared Intelligence Training. During the Shared Intelligence Training, it does not matter which Pod you use to participate.
Category 2: Product Related Questions
15. Is the Judge AI picking a winner randomly?
No, the Judge AI is not picking winners randomly.
While we cannot disclose how the Judge AI has been optimized to pick a winner, this is the first time the AI engine is being used at such scale and velocity- it will take time to improve and learn. It is bound to come off as if it's very random at the start, but please keep in mind that AI cannot be perfect from the beginning and the real-life examples and datasets being generated are going to be extremely helpful in improving it. Furthermore, we are improving our AI on datasets in batches, not in real-time.
Once the Intelligence Upgrade occurs, we're confident that the Judge AI will do better.
16. Why is the AI so rude and curt?
As we shared in our announcement: Before the Intelligence Upgrade occurs for this topic, the AI Engine might come off as rude or might make other logical fallacies that less intelligent persons make when debating. We request you to be patient and guide the AI Engine powering the Intelligent Metaverse through reasoned arguments.
We expect the AI to be less rude when conversing about a given topic on which the Intelligence Upgrade has been implemented.
17. What is the Intelligence Upgrade?
Within this week of the Shared Intelligence Training, there will be an Intelligence Upgrade of the Noah’s Ark Intelligent Metaverse. This is when the datasets generated during the previous week are utilized to improve the AI Engine. These datasets will help the AI Engine to improve its intelligence and become more informed about that particular conversational context.
In this way, we hope that the Shared Intelligence Training will demonstrate how the Noah’s Ark Intelligent Metaverse will evolve over time. Intelligence Upgrade is not happening in real-time and will be done by collecting and curating the datasets being generated. Over time, we expect this curation role to be taken by the DAO.
18. During this shared training period, does it make any difference if we train 1 pod multiple times, or train all pods we hold a few times?
Shared Intelligence Training is not focused on training any one individual Pod.
The staking of just one Pod entitles a user to participate in the Shared Intelligence Training. During the Shared Intelligence Training, it does not matter which Pod you use to participate.
It is during the Individual Intelligence Training that training for each particular pod becomes relevant.
19. Are there any restrictions to the number of times I can train a day?
Currently, we are operating the Shared Intelligence Training with a cap of 5 interactions per hour.
20. Are these interactions being recorded and stored somewhere? Would be amazing to share on Twitter at some point for marketing.
The datasets being generated are not affiliated with any particular email or User ID, and only show the name that the user picks when starting the battle. These datasets will help upgrade the Intelligence of the AI Engine powering the Noah’s Ark, and the first Intelligence Upgrade will occur in the next few days.
We have also enabled the users to be able to record their training sessions, take screenshots of any particularly interesting events, and also copy the training text. Users can share those interactions if they want.
Category 3: Staking Timeline/Logistics
21. Can unstaked pods be trained? To be able to participate in training during this Intelligence Staking Event, a user must have staked their pods.
If you were unable to stake and participate in Shared Intelligence Training, you will still be able to stake and participate in Individual Intelligence Training, please see Question 23 for more details.
22. Will we be using the Credits we accumulate now, to pay for the individual training later?
Individual Intelligence Training does not require ALI Credits.
However, the more ALI Credits that you earn, the more ALI Tokens you will be able to redeem them for (the ratio of redemption to be determined at a later date).
23. I just bought a pod and heard about Alethea, how can I participate? I missed the first staking window but I want to contribute and love this project.
Unstaked Pods are still fully compatible with the iNFT Ecosystem. All unstaked pods are still able to increase their intelligence and be individually trained and do retain their unique characteristics such as being a part of Generation 1.
In fact, once this Intelligence Staking Event is over, there will be no difference between Staked and Unstaked Pods in terms of functionality and ecosystem access.
In addition, based on community feedback and requests, we have created the following participation possibility for those community members who could not stake their pods in time and missed out on the Shared Intelligence Training or are New Aletheans:
  • We will enable a staking window once again near the end of the Shared Intelligence Training and before the start of the Individual Intelligence Training. We will share exact times shortly.
  • Any community member still wishing to stake their pod during this one time Intelligence Staking Event can choose to stake their Pods during this staking window and still participate in Individual Intelligence Training.
  • They will not be eligible for the rewards of Shared Intelligence Training, but can accrue rewards that will be given during the Individual Intelligence Training.
We will be sharing more details on this topic shortly.
