Since becoming mainstream in the latter half of 2021, NFTs have essentially modified the market for digital assets despite stirring both excitement and skepticism from blockchain enthusiasts. As NFTs continue to permeate pop culture in several ways, plenty of non-fungible projects have been emerging to capitalize on the rapidly growing market, much like blockchain’s upcoming art-driven token, Ethereum Homies.
Non-fungible tokens or NFTs can come in the form of digital artwork, videos, animated GIFs, songs, trading cards, and so much more. They are then stored on a specific blockchain, digital ledgers in which records of transactions are stored, where they remain tamper-proof. Ethereum Homies populate the Ethereum blockchain, like its name connotes, and comprises 10,000 unique and magnificently hand-designed 3D NFTs. The project is rigged and ready for the metaverse and takes profound influence from the music, fashion, and NFT culture with how each NFT is distinctly designed.
Each Ethereum Homie is a relatable avatar with an intricate background and can be used to communicate with other Homies in the community. The team behind this fantastic and exceptional project consists of a talented 3D artist, four metaverse designers, a coder, a web developer, and a back-end security developer who were all friends from the very beginning and eventually came together to form the project.
Project lead and artist Evijan Watson has spent the last four years in Los Angeles, California as a creative director, videographer, and editor, working with numerous well-known talents in the music industry. Around the time the NFT market amplified its presence back in 2021, Evijan then used his creative flair to develop 3D animation and NFTs leading to the foundation of an idea arranged to push the music scene into the metaverse. This vision allows international accessibility to numerous music events and networking.
Ethereum Homie is ultimately a project geared towards diversity and inclusion within the NFT space. The team’s vision is centered on creating art that promotes culture and advancing external resources and learning opportunities pertinent to Web3 for communities across the globe representing all sectors of society.
The project’s pretty detailed roadmap shows that it is off to a good start with a recent milestone they just completed. To thank the community for the unequivocal support, the team has distributed 1 ETH to five lucky holders to celebrate their first turning point. Details of their giveaways are found on their dedicated Discord channel.
Now that the brand has established a solid foundation, they are preparing to advance the Ethereum Homies even further. Next on their agenda is procuring land in the metaverse – a virtual sandbox real estate will be purchased for community usage wherein virtual concerts will be held and countless networking events accessible by people belonging to the community. In addition, people who hold Homies will have the chance to receive additional valuable content and drops.
The team is also coming up with an idea to allow holders to forge NFT wearables into the physical world through its upcoming Homie G Drip Store. As such, the store will provide its holders access to additional merchandise, event tickets, and other metaverse assets.
As a community-driven project, Ethereum Homies is set to create a public and transparent wallet funded through royalties. The wallet will then implement a community decentralized voting system that allows its holders to determine metaverse events, musical artist selection, land purchases, royalty contribution changes, merch store additions, and future meet-up events. In conclusion, the project’s community will help shape the future of Ethereum Homies.
