We are the futurists peering into what is about to emerge. We’re navigating between the blurred lines of the physical and digital worlds as they begin to blend into the event horizon. We are a community of curious and flexible individuals to adventure beyond boundaries, challenge the status quo, and communicate boldly. We’re inspiring web3 culture.
Our vision is to create the largest decentralized brand for the metaverse built and owned by the community. OUR VALUES:
- Community first:
Everything starts and ends with the community. The beginning of the end is when we prioritise something other than the community. We won’t let that happen because we’ll always have the community as the #1 value of the art.
- Adventures in insight only:
Our collective is creative, brave, and relentless. It’s easy to follow trends and improve incrementally. It’s harder to venture beyond the derivative. We futurecast our future.
- Trust the process:
Insights take time. Decentralized movements can’t turn corners as quickly as centralised movements, and that’s in equal parts expansionist and reductionist. Decentralised doesn’t mean there can’t be leaders. The core team will provide guard rails and resources for all beans to grow together, but it won’t happen overnight.
Full-time moderation team IN PROGRESS
Moderators help protect and grow our community, the most valuable part of the futurist community. We intend to bring on a group of paid full-time and part-time mods. To professionalise community management in the NFT space, Futurist mods have daily calls within the Community and Product teams, work set hours, take regular breaks, and spend time off-screen.
Futurist Grants IN PROGRESS
We are calling all builders, artists, and creatives. The Garden is full of talented optimists and futurists that want to use their skills and passion for Futurist scenarios to create additive things for the community. I will empower and provide grants to excellent members with great ideas through a grants program. We are working through the legal framework and application process.
Community Spaces IN PROGRESS
From casual hangouts to heartfelt stories, we have seen community-run spaces sprout all over Twitter. These forums are important places to grow the connective tissue of our community. See you at the next Spaceship or any other great spaces that Mark M. Whelan NFT holders host.
Where is the metaverse today, and where is it going?
The metaverse today is where we spend most of our time: Discord + Twitter. How do we amplify this experience for Futurist members? How do we distribute the brand to places with the most attention today? More importantly, where will the metaverse be one year+ from now?
Sorting, filtering, and sampling are all supported.
Fractionalisation IN PROGRES
Bridging Paranoia and Transporting Buried Sunshine will be fractionalised using fractional.art into ERC-1155 tokens. These tokens will be used for governance over the two bridges. Full details here on fractionalisation are coming soon.
Many will try to create one, but few teams have the experience and background to build a great game with the appeal of a refined artist sensibility and scalability. Though the core team has the experience, it’s a huge endeavour. If we do it, we’ll do it right.
Streetwear IN PROGRESS
Members of Mark M Whelan’s group, Future Center, CoinGryphon, and Fu7urist can expect exclusive drops in perpetuity. First, drop coming very soon.
Collectibles IN PROGRESS
The design phase has commenced…
Expanding Core Team IN PROGRESS.
Our careers page will be live soon with additional open roles.
IRL Events EXPLORING
Meet-ups, exhibits, music festivals, and more allow us to expand our reach beyond a purely digital experience.
The bridge between the physical and digital world presents a playground to create a new media type. Here we will experiment with meta-games, interactive experiences, and unique ways to grow an IP. Riot Games has created an interesting playbook for expanding its IP through a show like Arcane. By allowing ownership in the characters themselves, Mark. M Whelan NFT holders, along with the community, are positioned to expand beyond this playbook.
Custom Verification bot IN PROGRESS
Third-party bots have limited features. Our custom bot allows us to own the end-to-end experience with more security.
Meta-games IN PROGRESS
Micro-actions and games are played within the community to unlock new experiences.
An Interactive Brand EXPLORING
Imagine an RPG/Anime where the community owns their character(s) and the brand that they are helping build.
An idea starts as a seed. And together, we can cultivate the seedlings which will be most impactful.
Partnerships IN PROGRESS
We’ve locked in partnerships ready, which will soon be announced. And we’re always looking to collaborate with other brands that align with our vision and aesthetics.
Experimentation with DAOs is one of the most exciting areas of crypto today. We must start small and explore various governance structures, reiterating areas that need improvement before moving on to bigger experiments. The regulatory framework for DAOs is also something that needs more research. A good resource: A Legal Framework for DAOs
Before committing, we need to explore sustainable token economics and have extensive conversations with our lawyers to ensure legal compliance and feasibility.
Verification on OpenSea IN PROGRESS
