The NFT space is an excellent avenue for people to promote various advocacies. Despite that, there are only a few initiatives that support marine conservation. NotEssential aims to change this by releasing CycloTurtles NFT.
The inspiring venture is the first of four phases in the CycloVerse, which will be a series of four projects following the values of Longevity, Prosperity, Wisdom, and Freedom. The pioneer collection CycloTurtles features 7,777 adorable turtle avatars stored as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.
In line with its remarkable mission of supporting marine conservation, the project plans to give back $500,000 to a charity chosen by its community on Discord once it mints 60% of the collection.
Aside from that, the CycloVerse is also committed to fostering a thriving NFT community. To do this, it has created impressive artworks and designs that contain a randomized combination of more than 111 unique attributes and traits. Each one is inspired by pop culture, anime, and the artist’s unique perspective of the world.
In addition to that, rare attributes can be minted, giving its token holder fantastic perks. For example, 54 Tesla Coils Shell accessories give its minters a chance to win one of three Tesla Model 3s. Among the 54 Money Stack Shell accessories token holders, two will win $50,000.
There are also 15 NotEssential Chain neckwear attributes that give exclusive access to a private group with holder benefits. Finally, 24 Shell Accessory attributes serve as hidden easter eggs that provide a glimpse into the next phase of the CycloVerse.
In terms of utility, the CycloVerse will act as a portal that bridges the virtual world with the physical world. It will create a space in the Metaverse that allows its community to hang out, interact, and organize events.
CycloTurtles will also gamify the experience with the introduction of islands. These provide adventurers with exclusive benefits, giveaways, and private groups. In addition, CycloTurtles with unique attributes will also produce better perks.
Like other NFT collections, it also contains a rare set called the Exotic CycloTurtles, which feature the most unique backgrounds. Lucky individuals who mint these special avatars will experience amazing advantages and benefits. For example, they will have exclusive access to the highest tier of the island and rub shoulders with celebrities and musicians through a VIP admission to an upcoming music festival in the Metaverse.
Other perks exclusive to its community and token holders will also be available in the following days, such as a merch store, figurines, and a massive giveaway.
Undoubtedly, CycloTurtles is a highly promising collection that caters to all types of NFT enthusiasts. For art collectors, extraordinary art pieces are included in the collection. On the other hand, investors looking for utility can take advantage of the gamification and other perks that come with holding a CycloTurtle.
CycloTurtles is already available for minting, and the subsequent phases will be available soon. But, for now, NotEssential remains true to its mission, “Individually we are NotEssential. Together we are all Essential.”
