Mars Genesis Announces an NFT Project That Lets Users Own a Parcel of the Red Planet

MarsGenesis introduces an NFT project which divides the Red Planet into 10,000 unique parcels and converted all of the parcels into unique NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. The Martian parcels of land used in the creation of these NFTs, bear unique coordinates based on accurate data obtained from 100+ state-of-the-art research papers about the Red Planet. The contract has these coordinates embedded in them and they stand as evidence of the unicity of the card. Simply put, the proof of ownership of every MarsGenesis NFT lives on the blockchain forever and cannot be lost even in an event where the IPFS goes down.

Humans have been forever fascinated by Mars – inspired by their desire to explore space, Mars Genesis designed an NFT collection to pay tribute to the rotating red circle in the night’s sky. This NFT collection is none other than the highly popular Mars Genesis NFT.

Mars Genesis NFTs are available in the form of digital cards. Every card possesses a unique value and comes in different sizes with different attributes. The attributes are information about the parcel of Mars such as the topography, water data, temperature range, and colony conditions. These attributes have been compiled from state-of-the-art research from NASA, ESA, Harvard University, and Caltech. The developers of the project have invested hours in finalizing the designs of each card by hand as per the information gathered. Fresh Martian parcels getting minted are generated randomly and they are set according to a tiered pricing schedule. The NFTs are available for purchase starting at 0.15 ETH and go up to 0.5 ETH. Additionally, the initial owner of MarsGenesis NFTs receives a 4% reward in perpetuity on all secondary sales, no matter how many times it’s been sold or who sells them on the Mars Genesis Marketplace.

Mars Genesis NFTs were introduced to create a one-of-a-kind real-life simulation to see what a human settlement on Mars could look like on a large scale, by setting up the first real-time marketplace simulation of real estate on another planet. A team of scientists, astrophysicists, artists, and blockchain engineers passionately put hours of work into creating the Mars Genesis NFTs. Also, just like the finiteness of prized possession, Mars Genesis NFT cards are rare. After all the 10,000 cards offering every parcel of the Red Planet are minted, their demand will experience a sudden surge. When this happens, the sole way for the acquisition of these cards will be by purchasing them from someone via the Mars Genesis marketplace on the blockchain. The NFT cards can then be bid for, traded, and bought by investors on the Mars Genesis marketplace.

Once a holder mints their parcel they are ready for the next phase of the Mars Genesis NFT project titled the Martians. The Martian collections of 10,000 unique 3D Extra terrestrial characters dropped on October 15th with an epic bang.

Anyone can mint a Martian, and each Martian owner will be given access to an additional asset pack that includes the full 3D model of their character. For example, if users mint five Martians the developers are offering to buy it back at floor price of 10 ETH! One of the most unique parts of the project is that The Martians are part of an optional game called The Battle of Martians. Each Martian will belong to a crypto-faction represented by one of the forty most popular cryptocurrencies and holders can battle each other to earn real cryptocurrency.
