ConsenSys to launch Ethereum's Merge inspired NFTs collection
To celebrate the event, the blockchain firm is hosting a 72h NFT drops on Ethereum mainnet on the day of the Merge.
To celebrate the achievement of the most highly-anticipated event within the cryptocurrency community, ConsenSys commissioned a series of limited edition NFT illustrations Inspired by Ethereum's Merge.
“The Merge is cause for celebration – a landmark moment in Web3’s young history and testament to decentralized software development. (…) We want to thank the open community of developers, client teams and researchers for the seven years of dedication and innovation it took to make this transition possible. (…) Our commitment to decentralization and Ethereum is bone deep and we will continue to contribute our people, products and resources to support its evolution,” said the company in a statement.
The collection, designed by artist and illustrator Chris Skinner, is called Regenesis and comes in different editions depicting elaborately detailed worlds that embody the benefits of the transition to the PoS consensus layer (sustainability, security, and scalability). ConsenSys partnered with Invisible North to realise the collection, while the NFT animations were made by Keithcity Group. “The art explores the scale and significance of the Merge, an ambitious re-architecture of the world’s largest open programmable blockchain, which makes the network 2000x more energy efficient and positions Ethereum to sustainably support the next generation of Web3 creators and developers,” explain ConsenSys.
On Merge Day, the blockchain software company will hosts a 72-hour mint in one of the first sustainable NFT drops on Ethereum mainnet. The company detailed that the entire collection is free and the only cost incurred will be from paying gas fees for every mint. Minting will begin the day of the Merge and be open and available to all from 9:00 am EST.
