T3rm.dev, the first decentralized terminal in the metaverse built on the Web 3.0 stack, just launched. This unstoppable global CLI on the Ethereum blockchain enables the minting of commands as provably rare, collectible nonfungible tokens, or NFTs.
At the intersection of art, developer culture and 80s nostalgia, this platform gives artists, decentralized finance (DeFi) developers, adventurers and collectors the unique opportunity to explore a new text-based canvas while creating value for the community.
Where are the t3rm.dev programs hosted?
Each command-line program is minted as a unique NFT using the IPFS protocol to store metadata and code, similar to art or video NFTs. The website runs as a decentralized application (DApp) using Fleek, where commands are discovered and mirrored by a peer-to-peer (P2P) network.
Collectors trade their favorite commands and can update the code for any that they own. They can also choose to “freeze” a command, locking the code from future updates.
A total of 1,337 randomized identities were made available on t3rm as tradable text-based NFTs with skill levels ranging from 0-8.
State, images and other functions have been intentionally omitted for others to interpret.
For info, run the command: “INFO”
To create a package: run the command: “MINT”
To discover your identity, run the command: “WHOAMI”
Note: To avoid a failed transaction from price slippage during times of high volume minting, we recommend fast gas.
This world is defined by stark glowing text on a solid black background, paying homage to the nostalgic experience of classic adventure games. There is no right or wrong, there is only fun and boring.
One of the earliest commands deployed to the platform was “gm:”
The smart contract has an internal pricing mechanism that automatically adjusts the minting fee to maximize the rarity of the NFTs for secondary market collectors and to prevent the flood of new projects into the platform. The more users try to “ape” into the project, the more the contract pushes back.
