1UP Cartel Is Exploding: Over 30k USD CARTEL Issued, Only 4 Days Left For Base Price
The @oneup-cartel has reached a critical growth, where things are escalating faster than I would have ever anticipated. The amount of support, enthusiasm and creativity that is coming out of the HIVE community for #ONEUP and for the #CARTEL has been the absolute highlight of my nearly five years on HIVE. It really does feel like family!
What Is The Cartel?
Well, we are pretty meta:
- We are a meta-guild, a community for communities.
- We are meta-gamers, gaming many blockchain games.
- We are a meta-token, a dividend token for dividend tokens.
- We are meta-curators, a curation service for all HIVE tribes.
- We are a meta-business, making money from the metaverse.
- And we are a meta-family, a family for families - your friendly Cartel.
CARTEL Is High Demand
The Cartel launched on December 17th, as a stand-alone project on the ONEUP blockchain gaming and NFT community, to support both HIVE and ONEUP. It features the CARTEL, a Hive-Engine token, that is sold for $10 USD per 1 CARTEL through an over-the-counter transaction of HBD, SWAP.HBD and SWAP.BUSD to the @oneup-cartel account on HIVE. It is also sold on the Hive-Engine market for a ~15% premium price.
The vast majority was bought OTC, some was bought at a premium from the market. We also did a few asset swaps for 50% or less in favour of the Cartel (Hashkings, dCrops, LVL, UTOPIS).
The Cartel is fully backed: Not a single CARTEL was issued to anybody without backing the token at its set value or above, not even to the founders or the most deserving supporters.
The Cartel has begun to team up with gamers, who are operating specific gaming accounts from and for the Cartel. We have started to invest into various games, mostly on but also already outside the HIVE blockchain.
They are all earning a fair share of whatever they are able to achieve in the games and report to the Cartel with weekly account progress updates and investment opportunities. We support them with article feedback, graphic design and curation.
So far, we have players for @splinterlands, @hashkings, @dcrops, Crypto Raiders, Gods Unchained, Skyweaver and @farmingtales.
We are looking into expanding into Axie Infinity, DeRace (and other racing games), @risingstargame, @exodegame, @cryptobrewmaster and @rabona next. Let us know if you are interested to work as an operator for any of these games.
The Cartel started to hire excellent writers like @entrepidus and @trashyomen to produce very high quality articles, with thoroughly researched material about the various games we are interested in. The Cartel pays them well for this effort, does the editing and graphic design and posts the articles from the @oneup-cartel account, with them as shared beneficiaries.
We are basically building our own editorial on the HIVE blockchain, dedicated to the ONEUP community, with the very high standards. This is only the beginning of transforming our frontend 1UP.zone into a fully Web3.0 gaming magazine, that rivals the likes of IGN and GameSpot.
This would be a massively difficult task for ONEUP alone - but with the help of the Cartel, this vision is becoming more and more achievable.
Below is our current article collection:
ONEUP Cartel TV
Our latest addition to our content production line are videos. We love videos, gamers love videos, we already have fantastic articles loaded with all information - creating videos is basically a no-brainer for us. But we are only as good as our family, so we teamed up with @solymi, who started creating ONEUP Cartel TV for us.
In our first episode, he presented our Hashkings article in a video format, with tons of cool animations and funny scenes.
Please check out our post with the video and leave us some feedback, so we can improve our effort even further:
|ONEUP Cartel TV (Episode 1): Hashkings|
Video on Youtube:
ONEUP Cartel TV YouTube Channel
Weekly ONEUP Cartel TV Life-Stream
Creating videos is only the beginning for ONEUP Cartel TV:
We will do a regular live-stream with our Splinterlands operator and live-stream genius @drabs587, who is a master streamer on Twitch. This will be a meta-stream, including an AMA for ONEUP & the CARTEL, our gaming operations progress, giveaways and much more.
We will look into cross-streaming to multiple platforms like Twitch, Youtube and Vimm and how to interact live with our 1UP Discord Community. This is a massive task for us and even for Drabs a whole new frontier in streaming. But we are confident to tackle that with the same elegance we are moving through our other endeavours.
Stay tuned for February, when we begin this adventure.
NFTs & Tokens
The size of our treasury is really impressive! It would take an entire new post to list them all but here are a few highlights, that are different to our last update:
- Over $14k USD in LP positions in Dieselpools on Tribaldex
- Over $11k USD in our HIVE and Hive-Engine wallets
- One of the largest @hivefolks holder (5 Hive Folks NFTs)
- INDEX and BRO holdings
- Stakes in SPT, LEO, CINE, PIZZA, PGM, BXT & ONEUP
- Gaming Tokens:
- @psyberx with 600k LVL
- @ehon with 3000 EGOV and 70 GENONE
- Crypto Raiders with 3647 AURUM
- More @hashkings and @dCrops NFTs
Basically, the money bin is filling up and we are already several feet high.
Our most underestimated but most powerful feature is the @curation-cartel:
A meta-curation service for various HIVE community tribe tokens. Below is our current list of supported tribes and their dedicated curation account:
|Tribe Token||Curation Account||Main Tag||Operator Fee|
You can delegate your staked tribe tokens to one of our dedicated accounts and earn daily curation rewards, while leaving the work to the Cartel. We take a 5% fee for this service, which automatically enters the Cartel treasury, in form or growing stakes and Dieselpool positions.
Considering that both @monster-curator as well as @oneup-curators are the largest voting accounts for those tokens and @cine-curator and @leo-curator also growing substantial power, this has become a major branch of the Cartel.
Our Cartel curators, lead by @sketchygamerguy, our meta-mod for HIVE and Discord, are putting in a massive effort to find the best content among all these different communities and send them 1UP's, in form of a comment trigger, that activates our bot army. 100% manual curation with 100% automatic execution.
Our bot scans the tags of the posts and sends only eligible curation accounts to upvote the post. This way, we are able to manage already ten different curation accounts, each dedicated to a specific token. And we are planning to expand the list with further tribe tokens over time.
Finally, an auto-comment is being done under the curated post, informing the author about which of our specific curation accounts have left an upvote.
In the future, we will further improve the auto-comments, by creating community specific comments as well as improving our bots voting behaviour to maximize rewards for our delegators. We will also create a Discord connection to our bot, so that we all can see in real time what is happening with our curation and curators.
We are 100% dedicated to bring the most value to all of the supported communities, training our curators to understand the requirements of each tribe, spotting tag abuse and briefing the authors for incorrect tag usage. We are learning ourselves but are working hard to improve our curation efforts over time.
Cartel-Team Is Growing
Our family is growing quickly, we are now 525 members on Discord! Among our family we recruited very talented and motivated people and put them on our payroll in various ways.
- @spiritsurge: The Hand, Cartel Manager and Accountant
- @sketchygamerguy: Meta-Mod, Curation Leader
- @crazyh: Cartel Bot Developer
- @entrepidus: Content Writer
- @kayrex: Illustrator and Animator
- @japex1226: Illustrator and Animator
- @entrepidus: Author and Researcher
- @trashyomen: Author and Researcher
- @solymi: Video Production
- @e-rich1: Sound and Music Production
We also updated our ONEUP delegation list, removing some of our previous delegatees and soon add new curators to the list.
All in all, we are busy expanding our team with amazing individuals!
Only 4 Days Left To Get CARTEL At Launch Price
On January 17th, the price of 1 CARTEL will go up by 10%, from $10 USD to $11 (+15% on Hive-Engine market). All dividend payouts are delayed at least until March 17th, maybe even three months longer, as announced in our launch post.
We will continue selling CARTEL until March 17th, further increasing the price to $12 on February 17th. Then we will present a full accounting of our holdings, with a proper calculation of what we own at that time.
What will happen to the remaining CARTEL tokens, will be decided at that time.
To get CARTEL, send $10 HBD, SWAP.HBD or SWAP.BUSD to @oneup-cartel ($11 starting on January 17th).

Thank you for supporting us...we would be nowhere without you.

And we are just getting started...I would like to add we are currently functioning with one hand tied behind our backs...and in a few months, we will be functioning full force...Everyone is going to be seeing even more awesome things...
So we can "only" delegate the tride tokens and not hive?
Coming soon...we, unfortunately, can't do everything at once...Please bear with us
No problem, I was just curious :D
I think it would be awesome to be an operator for eXode. I am a huge fan of that game (and 1up)! The core game loop is almost ready. I haven't posted about it in a while. Mainly waiting for the next major update, which is so close now I can taste it!
If you are interested in being our operator or you know someone who loves the game send them to our discord and DM me...we will set it up
This is amazing
It is...and we are just getting started
Lookin' good, fam! Glad to be a part of this cool new thang!
I hope that is you irl.. XD
Cool stuff @flauwy. Is there a TLDR on how to invest in this project? You know the cat, I invest don't really play. :-)
Posted Using LeoFinance Beta
Hey!! I know you addressed flauwy..so hope not being rude by interjecting. But just send swap.hbd in number of 10s to @oneup-cartel...and you should get your cartels ASAP...or buy them from the market :)
Thank you for the thought to support us...
Hey Cat, thank you for your interest in the Cartel!
It is very easy: Send any amount of HBD, SWAP.HBD or SWAP.BUSD to our HIVE account @oneup-cartel. I will issue you your CARTEL tokens within the next 1-3 days.
👏🏻 Amazing development @flauwy. Cartel Community growing faster than almost everybody expected. Cartel getting sold, Investments running, People recruitment accelerating and community growing. And we have a really cool and professional „Corporate/Cartel design“, thanks to the work of the illustrators. That’s excellent work! Looking forward to the next months!
Trust me we are as well :) We are very excited
Don't miss out on this one people. Those dividend payouts are going to be juicy af.

And that is just the tip of the iceberg..
Great Post! CARTEL is growing so fast and provides high quality content with the articles/videos/graphics.
Glad to be part of the family.
Glad to have you with us...your advice is always welcome...
Great initiative @flauwy!
I'll make sure to delegate some of my tribe tokens to those accounts, time remains my main issue :-)
Good luck with the project!
Thank you...appreciate the support
I have experience in Axie Infinity, Pegaxy, Rising Star and Rabona.
If you want I can join team and help.
Join the discord and DM me...we will see what we can do together
I have already DM you on Discord
Glad to have you onboard as our Pegaxy Operator...
It is my pleasure... I will do my best to bring great content to the 1UP Cartel

Just awesome, so much progress in so little time!
Thank you...we are working with some amazing people who are making all of this happen...
Im addicted to Alien Ships. Any thought of playing that game? They are in need of content creators for sure.

It is a good game...If you are interested DM me on discord

That is awesome, it is quite a project to watch grow, excellent work from everyone on the team!
Don't forget to pat yourself on the back as well...Love the gifs
Normally I dont reply to one-word comments...but I will make an exception...Thanks
@diegoloco(1/1) You mined HBIT | my wallet | market | tools | connect | <><
HBIT miners: the bot's confirmation reply may come and go as resource credits allow. You can still mine HBIT, even without comments. To monitor your mining see tool A or tool B or Discord (best).
wow, interesting. I delegated 1 million of my SPT myself to monster curator, and i play Splinterlands, Dcrops, Dcity, brewmaster axie and few more. Word of advice, there is a emerging one on Matic called Pegaxy, where the profits are quite nice, and you can rent the nft for a share of profits, goes like 90-94% to the owners while the one renting it do the work.
How do I get into the cartel?
Get in discord and let's talk...sounds exciting..
I am there Heruvim78 is the name.
Amazing that this project has gone up so quickly, had half a mind for another game to add but i think the cartel has enough on the table for now so salute and long live the cartel :)
The cartels' table is big enough for a lot...Hit me up...Would love to hear what amazing ideas you have..
Why did I miss this?
Now I know how to put the stake on the different tribes in production modus.

So happy to see this post, quite detailed and honestly, I am liking this concept of Mega curators for every community.
@zakludick see I suggested/predicted this use-case on our first discussion. :)
We can't wait to see more and more consistent posts from farming tales on hive!
Looks like something impressive is being built. I sent over some HBD to get a CARTEL. (Unfortunately I move much of my HBD to HP so I didn't have much available).
What is the Discord channel?
Are there any liquidity pools to join to earn this token or it's simply buy and hold only on the market/sending liquid hive?
There is no earning the trust of the family (and hence CARTEL tokens) other than your coins or your support for the community by being amazing. 💋
@oneup-cartel @flauwy are you still processing Cartel token issuance? Sent HBD 2 days ago and have not yet received Cartel token, I think. At least that is what Hive Engine tells me :/
Yes, I issue CARTEL once every 3-4 days currently, otherwise I wouldn't do anything else anymore. 😅
Okay, thanks very much for your feedback!! :)
As I'm looking into more writing after my workload decreases starting on february, I'm interested in joining my buddy trashyomen in writing for you guys @flauwy shall i stop by in your discord to talk about it? I'm already in there since you collaborated with m3ss and the rest of our crypto-gaming guild crew :)
Hi @Flauwy - congratulations on the successful launch of the cartel. I read about it in your Listnerds post and clicked through to find out more. Upvoted your Listnerds post and am now following you here on Peakd.
Thanks for coming in from Listnerds...join us in Discord..the link should be in the Listnerds mail..glad to have you onboard.
Keep up that great work! These curation accounts are really doing amazing!
I really love what you achieved so far and wish you all the best for the future!
I do believe in these projects and their respective tokens!
So, is the Cartel going to jump into this new game Illuvium on Ethereum as well? Will the gameplay be on the main chain or a side chain, as far as you know?
I can't believe I missed this...My heavy apologies...
Hahaha, don't worry.
Can anyone verify they have gotten their cartel token after sending to the oneup account provided above? If so how long was the wait to recieve the token? going to buy one possibly with my rewards from blogging saving up for land in splinterlands so i want to make sure first.
All transactions are on the blockchain: https://he.dtools.dev/@oneup-cartel?symbol=CARTEL
It takes about 3-5 days for CARTEL tokens to be issued.
I was so active in January to know about this offer but I see that I still have a chance of getting in this amazing offer I will see what I can do this week to jump on this moving train and I have seen your curation bot many times on my content but never took the time to check, I guess the is what listnerd helps to bridge, not only content that is there within 7days for upvotes but greater content that should stand the test of times.
Great key illuvium
Enjoy the oneup upvote...Can't wait to see you in discord..
I love the upvote man thanks a lot
@flauwy and @oneup-cartel - I believe in your cause "you want to crush it" and I delegated recently and now I am going to buy a few Cartel. Again, not a gamer; but you guys have an awesome set-up here and just like other dividend tokens I have it keeps a non-gamer in the game. Rooting for you guys to SMASH IT not that you aren't already!
Saw your mail on ListNerds: "illuvium"
Appreciate the support...I see your post on listnerds too :D
Hey just to be sure: We just need to buy some cartel token on hive engine to be eligible for the airdrop right?
Thank you for this opportunity 😉
Not sure what airdrop you are referring to. There is none planned right now.
We got this mail (see below) today on Listnerds about an airdrop by 1UP.
"The Cartel is airdropping token to Cartel-Holders
Today Marks a month and 10 days since the Cartel took form...We are and always will be grateful to everyone who has trusted us and became a part of our family. Now I know that dividends are down the line, but we want to give back to all of you wonderful people. So we will be AIRDROPPING a special token to all the cartel holders. To allow for fairness as our family lives in different time zones we will allow a period of 24-48 hours for anyone to buy cartel to qualify for the airdrop. The qualification for Airdrop will stop when the Jefe de Jefes and El Padrino @Flauwy will make an official announcement from the oneup-cartel account... Now the tiers of the airdrop is not balanced but rather in 3 tiers: a) 1-49 Cartels b) 50-149 Cartels c) 150 and Above Cartels We once again thank you for the support and we love you all as a family.
The Hand of the Cartel - Spiritsurge
P.S: If you want to know more about the cartel join the discord here and go to this blog post here
P.S.S: If you comment with the secret phrase "illuvium" you can expect some sweet upvotes in Oneup token."
There will be an airdrop scheduled for 25th February for all Cartel Holders. It will not be 24-48 hours and has been revised.
Apologies for any miscommunication
I am not a game player but I will be an investor. I think what you are doing is very impressive.
Cartel is everywhere! illuvium I am excited about the new hires and content creation. The articles are well done. My only problem is my brain can't keep up with all the info.
Can't keep up. Welcome to the Hive :D
Nice post, very informative,
but what about "illuvium" ?
@flauwy! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @chapelle. (5/10)
The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on @alive.chat, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want.
When it comes you will see our post...Cartel airdrop happening on 24th Feb in discord
Loving the Cartel.
You are showing yourself as a leader speaking for the hive ant its games. Thanks.
Is illuvium some kind of new token?
It is an upcoming pokemon type game which P2E.
Illuvium is an upcoming blockchain game that has been hyped a lot. What about it?
