How will Mortuary Services be coordinated?
The Marble Town Mortuary handles all aspects of the cemetary’s governance & management, including placement of the $PLOTs, coordinating community proposals, as well as planning and execution of the monument building, customization, launching and hosting of memorial services and events, and reclamation of $PLOTs for resale at re-sale price at the end of year.
How are you going to ensure only dead people are interred in Marble Town?
We are working with experts in the field and advanced AI systems to develop a patent-pending Proof-of-Death protocol and KYC process to ensure all permanent residents of Marble Town are in fact deceased.
What is Proof-of-Death? How will this work?
Proof-of-Death (PoD) is the process by which Marble Town Mortuary Services will ensure that those who are being intered in Marble Town are verifiably deceased. This requirement is to protect the sanctity of the cemetary and ensure its authenticity, which is especially critical given the nature of $PLOTs memorialized therein.
Will there be additional plot types and land available?
Yes. We are developing additional plot types and larger plot parcels, as well as dedicated plots for larger monuments, crypts and mausoleums.
How do we pay our respects to the deceased?
All visitors to a $PLOT can memorialize the deceased by and placing media, 3d models, virtual artifacts, candles, bouquets and other things on while they’re at the $PLOT.
What about memorials for famous dead people? Can we purchase a $PLOT for John Lennon, for example?
If the person is deceased in the 20th century, we offer a ‘twilight’ period where we will take reservations only from bonafide representatives of the estate of a deceased person. A modest proportion of our $PLOTs are reserved for “honorary members”, who are public personas who don’t actually hold these $PLOTs yet, but will have access the $PLOTs given the right KYC/AML paperwork.
What about much older dead people? Can I have my $PLOT next to Aristotle?
Historical figures from antiquity will be voted on by $PLOT holders for inclusion in Marble Town. We will also issue RFPs to digital artists to create interactive monuments to these figures, which we will inter within Marble Town.
Will I be able to sell my plot, or make a change to my $PLOT?
You are always free to sell your $PLOT on the open market. If you need to make a change to your $PLOT, you can reach out to the Mortuary Services Department and tell them you want to make a change to your $PLOT.
