To date, nevertheless, it appears to have paid off for the mission, who’ve additionally accepted handfuls of purposes from non-recognizable names – even in crypto.

In the meantime, the mission’s imaginative and prescient outlined within the whitepaper is to problem conventional traces of pondering round NFT mental property. The mission seems to combine streamlined IP utilization instruments which might be owner-first, and construct out a storefront that enables customers to customized their NFT belongings at their discretion; briefly, it’s a roadmap for what the mission calls “y00topia.”
