Today we’re announcing our entrance into the burgeoning non-fungible token (NFT) space with an inaugural line of Calaxy Collectibles. Mark your calendars: the full details of our first three Collections — each with a unique theme — will be made available on Tuesday, April 19, 2022.
Calaxy NFTs are branded as Collectibles, and can be minted using the Calaxy App, imported from an external wallet, or purchased in the Calaxy marketplace. These initial Collections will be available for purchase through the Calaxy web application, providing the opportunity to create a Calaxy account during the check-out process. Calaxy Collectibles will grant fans unprecedented access to our high-profile Creator roster, empowering those Creators to leverage their following in ways previously unimaginable.
This marks the beginning of a seismic shift in the Creator-fan dynamic.
From Solo Ceesay, our Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer:
“The inaugural line of Calaxy Collectibles showcases Creators from every type of community. Inclusivity is paramount at Calaxy, which drives our team to ensure that all fan groups are catered for. Calaxy embraces inspiring Creators from a variety of professional fields like sports, music, culinary arts, fashion, and television. The Calaxy Collectibles will take fan engagement to the next level: giving fans the opportunity to support their favorite celebrities and idols while setting the parameters for a fair exchange of value.”
Packs of Collectibles will vary in size, quantity and rarity. The release of our initial Collections will be staggered over the coming weeks. Full details on the availability, purchase flow, and real-world utility for our Collectibles will be released on April 19.
Collection 1 — Myro Originals
The first Collection in our inaugural line of Calaxy Collectibles will be Meet Myro: An Origin Story.
Myro is the ultimate fan across the entire Creator’s Galaxy. He has come from the planet Hat-P-7b, which is located in the Cygnus constellation, about 1,000 lightyears from Earth — a place where it famously “rains rubies and sapphires.” (True story).
Each of these 26 NFTs is a 1-of-1 with a unique story and place in the history of Myro, Calaxy App, The Creator’s Galaxy Protocol, or Web3 more broadly. Myro is the brainchild of Calaxy’s Chief Design Officer Chadd Weston, who also crafted each of the NFTs in this inaugural Collection.
Weston will receive 15 percent royalties from the Meet Myro Collection and all revenue generated from the original sales will be donated to the charitable foundation of his choice.
Collection 2 — O-M-“IG”
The second Collection in our inaugural line of Calaxy Collectibles will highlight seven impressive women who have amassed millions of followers on Instagram.
Our O-M-“IG” Collection is comprised of 70 packs, each containing three NFTs of varying levels of rarity.
The women of the O-M-“IG” Collection are influencers, models, business owners and athletes. (But not necessarily in that order.) They embody Calaxy’s approach to growing the Creator Economy and empowering Creators to connect with their fans on their terms.
Collection 3 — Tokstar Lifestyle
The third Collection in our inaugural line of Calaxy Collectibles will feature seven Creators your might recognize from your FYP.
Our Tokstar Lifestyle Collection is comprised of 70 packs, each containing three NFTs of varying levels of rarity.
The subjects of the Tokstar Lifestyle Collection are Creators in the truest sense of the word, as they adopted a new platform and used their creativity and talent to build a following. They embody Calaxy’s approach to growing the Creator Economy and empowering Creators to connect with their fans on their terms.
