About us

What are Animaliens?

We come from the planet Lien and our world is inspired by the number you call 8. To us, we see infinity ♾️ which is the preservation of life. In a world filled with weapons of mass distractions, time has become our greatest luxury. Our mission is to utilize our time and help those who struggle to receive a comprehensive education. Too many people have one eye looking back at the past and the other toward the future, leaving them to walk the present, blind. Our goal is to build a conscious community that inspires others to not just want to change the world, but truly work towards improving it.

The Nebula Store

Our built-in project store where holders can buy raffle tickets, participate in auctions, and trade Animalien NFTs powered by our customized smart contract.

Raffles & Auctions

Holders can participate in periodic raffles and auctions on the website for community voted items including Blue Chip NFTs, Whitelist Spots, Merchandise, etc.

Secret Traits

Each NFT's metadata will be encrypted with secret traits that can be unlocked when migrating to other planets.

What is it?

Marketplace

Raffles & Auctions

Holders will be able to enter periodic raffles and auctions through our store. The community will vote on the items including Blue Chip NFTs, Whitelists, Merch, etc.

$IEN

The store will serve as the hub for staking your NFTs. The longer you hold, the more $IEN you receive. The store will support making purchases in $IEN in the future.

Did somebody say encryption?

Secret Traits

Each NFT will be minted with an encrypted secret trait within the metadata. The secret trait can only be unlocked and decrypted when migrating into different planets. When unlocking your new NFT, it will become rarer but only the chosen ones will be allowed passage. Will you uncover your secret?

FAQs

Looking for answers?

Why are you developing your own marketplace when others already exist like jpg.store or cnft.io?

Our marketplace was originally built to host our unique smart contract but we have iterated so it will have multiple functionalities besides being a place to trade your NFTs with 0% transaction fees. Our marketplace will also be a store where you can spend your $IEN to purchase a variety of things that the community votes on. For example, tickets and bidding for blue chip NFTs, tickets for tuition/debt raffles, buying education/self-development related products.

How will you be transparent with the community for your philanthrophic endeavours?

After selling out, we will take 8% of the drop and divide them with our partner institutions for donation. We will showcase all transactions for the community to see.

How are royalties going to be distributed with transparency?

Our own smart contract in the Nebula marketplace will allow us to automatically split the 8% royalty fee into 3 different wallets. These will be on the site for the community to see. 1) 50% to holders 2) 25% to project development 3) 25% to the team.

What happens when our Animalien NFTs are not trading in the Nebula marketplace but in jpg.store for example?

On the 8th of each month, we will showcase the total royalties we recieve from all marketplaces and distribute the funds to the appropriate wallets displayed on the site with full transparency.

But how and where do I get $IEN from?

That is another functionality of our marketplace. In Phase 2, you will be able to stake your NFTs in order to earn $IEN.

What if I'm not a student or don't have student debt and win the tuition drawing?

The choice is yours! You can gift it to a family member, a friend, or sponsor one of our mentees for their tuition. You can also use it for your own educational development e.g., coding bootcamp. If you prefer to cash out and take fiat you will incur an 18% fee that will be utilized by community vote. The lucky winner must be willing to be doxxed to receive the prize.

Will you have a rarity table?

Yes, absolutely! This will be available on cnft.tools shortly after mint.

What inspiration is behind the art?

Ramiro's pet chamelon, Ramon, inspired the 4,444 chamaliens to be purposefully designed making each uniquely cartooony with blended color, imaginative style, and artistic swagger.
