Tezos NFT Platform

The ecosystems of our planet are becoming ever more endangered. Over 1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction — more than ever in human history. We must remind ourselves of the priceless value these ecosystems hold to all of us before it’s too late.

Span created the Terraria project to turn ecosystems into collectibles. 3D terrariums emerge from custom letterforms, each containing one of nine different biomes — grasslands, wetlands, mountains, tundra, rainforest, stream, desert, ocean, and forest.

Digital collectors can mint NFTS of each biome, each varied with multiple weather and time-of-day variations on the Tezos “Proof-of-Stake” blockchain — a format at nearly a thousandth of the carbon load of proof-of-work blockchains like Bitcoin. Each NFT is uniquely composed based on the transaction. Analog collectors can receive on-demand 12 x 12-inch art prints of one of the nine biomes on archival Epson RC paper. All proceeds and royalties were donated to 1% for the Planet.
