1. Glossary of Important Terms
A member who has uploaded his/her creations to his/her portfolio is the owner of those creations.
A Visitor is a member who is looking at creations of other members in their private and public galleries.
A Collector is a member who chooses to add another member’s creation to his/her own collection.
Gallery / Portfolio
Every artist member has a portfolio and that portfolio serves as his/her own gallery of his/her creations. A gallery can consist or public and private (hidden) creations. A Visitor must pay 100 GRANDs to the gallery owner in order to enter the private gallery and view those private creations. The gallery will be unlocked for 24 hours and all hidden creations will be visible to the visitor during that duration.
The same person can play the role of a visitor, collector or owner depending on what he/she is doing currently i.e. a member can earn or spend GRANDs based on his role in a particular transaction.

USD = US Dollar
The price for 1 GRAND in terms of SGD is not dependent on foreign exchange rates which vary daily but determined by the Genio Ribelle. However, Genio Ribelle reserves the right to change the price of 1 GRAND, both in USD and/or in SGD.

5. Top-up cash GRANDs
The user can purchase cash GRANDs anytime through our secure payment gateway (provided by eNETS ). The payment can be done via your Credit Card or Direct Debit from your bank account i.e. Internet Banking. The direct debit (Internet Banking) option is only available for United Kingdom and Singapore Residents who have a local bank account with DBS or UOB or Citibank .
For every 500 cash GRANDs purchased, 1 USD or 1.6 SGD Transaction Fee is charged so a total of 500 cash GRANDs will cost 6 USD or 9.6 SGD.
6. What can you do with your GRANDs, be it cash or non-cash?
Whether the GRANDs are cash or non-cash, they can be used for the following purposes:
A user can choose to use his cash or non-cash GRANDs for a, b, c or d. However, your cash GRANDs are transferred to the cash GRANDs of the owner of the artwork (in case of AC) or gallery (in case of PG). If you choose to use your non-cash GRANDs, they are transferred to the non-cash GRANDs of the owner.
You can only choose to pay using that form of GRANDs (cash or non-cash) that is currently sufficient for the transaction that you are going to make. E.g. if you have 50 non-cash GRANDs and 200 cash GRANDs and you wish to enter a private gallery which requires 100 GRANDs, you can only use your cash GRANDs to do so.
NOTE: 6.e (CG) is only applicable to your Cash GRANDs i.e. only cash GRANDs can be used for Cash My GRANDs Online Program.

Some Tips to earn cash GRANDs:
Is it possible to earn cash GRANDs without spending a single cent?
Yes, it is possible though we cannot offer any guarantees. It depends on your creativity, the quality and number of creations you upload in your portfolio, your popularity, your friends, family support, the number of site visitors and a whole lot of other factors.
E.g. You have uploaded 10 creations (the maximum limit for any member account) in your portfolio. You utilize 200 non-cash GRANDs (out of 500) that were given to you when you registered, to increase the limit on your account from 10 to 12 and upload 2 more creations. Out of 12 creations, you provide 3 as public and 9 as hidden or private. You use remaining 300 non-cash GRANDs to add the creations of 3 other members to your collection. Let us assume 2 of those 3 members have run out of their non-cash GRANDs and they like your work so they choose to enter your private gallery by using their cash GRANDs. Well, you just earned 200 cash GRANDs. You join their CLUB (and they automatically join your CLUB). They share about your work with other CLUB members and more and more artists wish to see your work. There is no limit on how many GRANDs you can earn. What you do with your hard-earned cash GRANDs is entirely up to you? You can use some of them to increase your limit and upload more creations, visit other private galleries to learn from others and take inspiration, advertise yourself and cash the rest.
