ZIGGURATS is the first generative NFT mixtape. It is a collection of 5000 unique audio + visual NFTs on the Tezos chain, generated from new art and music by Mike Shinoda. Visually and musically, no two items are the same, but some are more rare.
In ancient Mesopotamia, the Ziggurat was a tall, layered, structure. It was believed that the Gods lived in the temple at the top. Great care, effort, and creativity went into the creation of its complex structure. Likewise, this project is built upon layers of effort and devotion, some elements many years in the making.
The future is elusive. Things move quickly, in directions unforeseen. Ziggurats is not about putting future destinations on the map, it’s about exploring the unknown and planting flags along the way. Flexibility will allow us to move with the ebb and flow of time, opportunity, and innovation. Stay tuned for details and updates. Your attention will be rewarded.
While many popular projects are on the Ethereum chain, Mike chose Tezos for this project because it's a "green NFT," using about two million times less energy than Ethereum or Bitcoin. This allows for much lower transaction ("gas") fees and environmental impact.
