To get to know more about the project, we are thrilled to have the beyond rockets team as our guests for this week’s piece :
1- When did Beyond Rockets first drop ?
“The First Key, which is the first ever drop of Beyond Rockets and also the first-ever room theme in the city’s heart, Cardano Tower, was released on June 12, 2021. There were 100 rooms for this theme. The First Key highlighted the first moon landing in 1969, recreating a room that brings you to that day, and somehow making you feel that you were a kid watching that historical event. It also signifies the small step in the huge ambition of the project, one little room in the soon big city. Just like how Neil Armstrong said it, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
There was also a commemorative NFT given to each collector of The First Key called The First Key holder which were golden keys also located in the room at different locations.”
2- Why the choice of a City project ?
“As a creator and collector, I have three C’s as my criteria for NFTs. Connection, culture, and community. Making NFTs that people can connect to, that people will love. NFTs that spark a movement, drives culture and hones a lifestyle. And NFTs that bring people together and an ecosystem that people feel that they are part of a community. And what better way to do this than to create a city. Also during that time, it was a very new concept and idea in the whole NFT space, not just for Cardano. Most project were PFPs so I wanted to provide a fresh concept for the community while building a deep foundation for future expansions/new ideas as the space advances and progresses.”
3- What is the difference between Adaville and the Cardano Tower ?
“Cardano Tower is the heart of the city which is a 100-storey tower(yes it is super high and will take years to finish, last floor will be a penthouse 👀). The tower comprises of different themes with different backstories. Adaville on the other hand is the first ever village in the whole city and is really an OG piece. The village comprises of 10 different house types, all in contemporary architectural style. In this village, every house is special, but some houses are more luxurious with big pools and can even host the Big Brother show. Aside from the tower and village, there are more city pieces such as the Diamond Hands Bank, Seaport Cinema. There’s also this unique piece called the Vibin’ Orange Skelly which is a dance music video. There’s also the Decentral Perk which is a coffee shop, this piece is super special because it is tied to the Decentral Perk Lofi Beats Album, one of the first ever full music albums in the whole NFT space and what I can say is one of the crowd-favorites. This album is also released on Spotify and Apple Music. ”
