In celebration of International Girls in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) Day, Southeast Asia’s rising virtual influencer Rae (@here.is.rae) announces that she has created and will be launching her latest non-fungible token (NFT) collection titled ‘Adventures of Tako’.
The collection featuring exciting adventures of Rae’s virtual pet Tako, will be launched across three series. The first series comprising 888 NFTs is themed ‘To The Moon’.
The series is available here for public mint on 1 May 2022 at 8PM (GMT+8).
Each NFT is priced at 0.0288 ETH. You can also get in early on the action to earn a whitelist spot on 30 April 2022 by participating in ongoing giveaways and contests on Twitter, Discord and Instagram.
The entire ‘Adventures of Tako’ collection will consist of 5,064 uniquely generated 3D NFTs, created using the latest design software including Adobe, Autodesk Maya and Arnold Renderer, and parsed through a random and algorithm-based generator.
Borrowing a popular phrase amongst NFT and cryptocurrency enthusiasts, ‘To The Moon’ sees Tako skyrocketing to explore the outer space, while flaunting numerous OOTD looks and styles. These one-of-a-kind NFTs will feature the virtual pet with multiple traits and a myriad of expressions. Tako dons the coolest space helmets and eyewear, gear as well as the most futuristic weapons – equipping Tako to take on the galaxy and go to the infinity and beyond.
Rae is dedicating her ‘To The Moon’ series to a cause close to her heart – to advocate and raise awareness of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for young girls and its power to positively impact society and make the world a better place.
8% of the total sales proceeds and royalty fees from the series ‘To The Moon’ will be donated to the United Women Singapore (UWS)’s Girls2Pioneers programme.
30% of the royalty fees from each transaction on the secondary digital marketplace, OpenSea, will go towards Girls2Pioneers for a period of three months.
In other words, with every ‘To The Moon’ NFT transaction, the buyers are supporting Rae in contributing to this meaningful cause.
NFT holders of the first series will also get to hear directly from Rae by receiving a rare audio message with each purchase. You will also gain priority exclusive access to the launch of the second series of the ‘Adventures of Tako’ collection.
