An NFT project says it is "truly redefining" what it means to collect digital art — with added benefits that other collections in the space don't offer.
Meta Ape Militia says its crypto collectibles deliver much more than an epic profile picture. For starters, the ecosystem is being underpinned by a Bitcoin mining operation that M*A*M holders can benefit from.
Proud owners of these NFTs can also gain access to exclusive experiences in the metaverse — including luxury retreats loaded with fun games and parties that'll take place in Destoria.
And whereas major NFT collections only consist of male characters, Meta Ape Militia says its range is 50% female. This could help attract new users to this space, which has sometimes faced criticism for being overly masculine.
The project has also gone through Know Your Customer checks with the Obsidian Council — an organization that allows "anonymous crypto teams to build trust with their communities without making their identities public."
Given how many NFT collections have been established by pseudonymous entrepreneurs complete with cartoon avatars — with rug pulls sadly happening frequently — M*A*M believes this is crucial for giving collectors confidence.
Overall, the goal is to create a vibrant community that brings together enthusiasts from all walks of life — establishing a culture where friendly conversations are the norm, and anyone with questions can get straightforward answers immediately.
Changing the narrative
A big motivation for M*A*M is driving the world of NFTs forward.
And a spokesperson for the collection told Cointelegraph: "The days of buying a hyped NFT for an incredible amount of ETH that has little to no utility, aside from CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC), just seems frivolous when it is compared to holding a M*A*M NFT.
"If you are long on Bitcoin and want to be part of an awesome community, you need to check out Meta Ape Militia. It is minting for free plus gas now."
The project's founders say they have a long history in Bitcoin mining and currently own a company called the Bitcoin Asset Group that handles all of M*A*M's mining needs.
Describing what motivated them to kick off this NFT collection, the team said they have a "deep love" for crypto and nonfungible tokens… but "have seen their fair share of the not-to-pretty side of crypto."
Stressing that "transparency and honesty" are at the heart of everything they do, they explained: "Being rug pulled and scammed too many times between different coins and NFT projects meant enough was enough — and it was finally time to do something. Meta Ape Militia was born. We have created something very special here."
'Crushing our roadmap'
Looking ahead, the M*A*M team say that Meta Ape Militia Island, an immersive experience in the metaverse, is currently being built.
Over 1,200 of these distinctive NFTs have already been sold — with vibrant artwork that'll make an eye-catching avatar on anyone's social network.
Crucially, each of these apes is compatible across the metaverse, giving collectors the flexibility to explore all of the virtual worlds in existence without limitations.
Meta Ape Militia has already attracted a loyal audience on Twitter, with 85,000 followers staying tuned for further updates. And there's plenty of chatter over on their official Discord channel, too.
The Wall Street Journal recently published a report that argued the NFT market is saturated — with five crypto collectibles in existence for every buyer. This means that collections really need to offer something special in order to stand out from the crowd.
And with a verified team and a novel Bitcoin mining element, Meta Ape Militia firmly believes it offers an ecosystem that'll be irresistible to collectors.
