What is Ether?
Ether is an anime-themed project built on the Ethereum blockchain that combines fashion, innovation, and story-telling. The project consists of 5555 characters within its universe. Aiming to become one of the first luxury brands to use blockchain technology to create high-quality clothing and collectibles, Project Ether seeks to create a collaborative and immersive narrative that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible.
Who is the creator of the project?
VIII, the creator of Project Ether, is a digital artist who previously worked in the entertainment and gaming industry for numerous brands that include but are not limited to Sony, Nike, and Epic Games as well as multiple public figures such as Megan The Stallion, Pokimane, and KSI.
VIII has always had an interest in clothing, storytelling, and collectibles. Once the concept of blockchain ownership had become apparent to him, he became one of the first artists to tie a digital asset to a physical good. This led VIII to the idea of creating Ether, a universe where the line between physical and digital is blurred.
How do I become a part of the project?
Ether is built on the Ethereum blockchain, which means you will need a web3 compatible ethereum wallet, like MetaMask, to purchase. Once you have minted an orb, you can choose to open a character of varying rarity during the reveal event which will occur shortly after mint. More details on how to purchase can be found on the Mint page.
What will the mint funds be used for?
The mint fund allows Ether a solid runway which will be used to expand the team and execute the roadmap with the highest quality possible. The fund will also allow Ether to focus on building without the worry of market conditions, yielding higher quality results. 70% of the mint funds will go towards the project’s treasury, 10% will be given to charity, and the remaining 20% will go towards the team.
What is the total supply of the project?
A total of 5555 total characters will be split into different bases. Half of the collection will be male, while the other half is female.
How many different traits are there within the collection?
Out of 5555 characters, the collection will be 50% human, 30% mecha, 19% vampire and 0.95% corrupt. Five 1 of 1 characters will contribute to the Ether brand and storyline.
Excluding the different character bases, the collection includes 500+ unique traits, creating billions of character possibilities.
How does 1/1 customization work?
The 5 special 1 of 1 characters will play an immensely important role within the Ether universe. Holders will be co-creating their character looks, attributes, and weapons alongside VIII.
Holders will also receive a special 1 of 1 figurine of their character produced by YouTooz, as well as an animated character reveal produced by PowerHouse Studios.
The 1 of 1’s are very important to the brand, therefore an ample amount of time must be reserved for the co-creating process. 2D animation and the production of figurines is not a process that can be rushed, and these works will require attention to detail and time to be perfected.
How do I know if I got 1 of 1?
The 1 of 1s have their own exclusive pre-reveal animation, and will be immediately recognizable. If a whitelisted individual chose to mint for free and reveals a 1 of 1, they are exempt from the timelock.
