— What is a CIRKAY Fan Pass?
Your CIRKAY Fan Pass is the digital key that provides access to content and experiences that are yours. It is unique to you so please keep your login details safe. You sign up for it using an email address and password, you can use your Google or Apple login credentials if you wish.
— Is my CIRKAY Fan Pass an NFT?
Your CIRKAY Fan Pass is a unique type of Utility NFT programmed to grant access to content which is stored directly on the Blockchain. It’s different from the more common type of NFT which points to a particular piece of insecure content on the internet. The CIRKAY Fan Pass is not currently on the Ethereum mainnet, it is not intended to be traded and it is therefore not a speculative investment. This is not about making a quick buck, but about fans getting closer to the content you want.
However, since the CIRKAY Fan Pass is based on the same underlying technology (ERC-721) as other NFTs, it does open the door to using it as an NFT Avatar for other services outside CIRKAY. If you are a Twitter Blue subscriber, for example, we are planning to allow you to use your CIRKAY Fan Pass as your social avatar, and we will unveil more places where you can use your Avatar in the coming months.

— Environmental impact
The CIRKAY Fan Pass is created on the http://Eluv.io Content Fabric, a low impact blockchain created exclusively for content creators. It stores and distributes video & audio in a fundamentally different way to current platforms. This results in a high quality video, audio & Fan Engagement experience, whilst consuming only a fraction of the power and resources of platforms like Netflix or Spotify.
If you want to get technical, Eluvio is a ‘proof of authority’ blockchain consuming around 1/50th of the power Netflix uses to stream video. Minting an NFT on Eluvio is also ultra-lightweight and takes only 10% of the CPU power it takes to deliver an hour of video.
So in context, minting 1 NFT on the Eluvio blockchain uses 1/500th of the CPU power of watching an hour on Netflix. That equates to 0.2g of CO2. Compare this to posting a photo on Instagram which emits 0.15g of CO2, and scrolling your Instagram newsfeed for 1 minute which emits 1.5g of CO2.
CIRKAY and parent company Push Entertainment have been on a sustainability journey since March 2021, our aim is to make our whole business carbon neutral. You can follow our progress here.
— Can I trade my NFT?
No – or at least, not yet. The NFT investment market is a bubble that needs to settle and find its place. We do not think the time is right to open up to the Ethereum mainnet and general trading, but we may do so in the future when we believe it could deliver long-term value to our customers.
— I haven’t received an email to claim my Fan Pass, what do I do?
Please check your spam/junk/promotions folder.
— I entered the wrong email address at checkout, what do I do?
Please contact our Customer Care team with the following information:
- Your order number
- The incorrect email address entered
- The correct email address
— Which wallet can I mint my Fan Pass to?
Currently, the Fan Pass can only be minted to a CIRKAY wallet powered by Eluvio. Within our near-term roadmap there will be the ability to connect to your MetaMask wallet.
