TORONTO, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / April 21, 2021 11:00 AM ET — Metis, the project focusing on developing technical and organizational infrastructure for the Web 3.0 economy, presents the first-ever community-minted *Non-Fungible Token (NFT). Known as “Rebuilding the Tower of Babel”, this community-minted NFT will bring people together to create a versatile community. Once the NFT is minted, it will be auctioned on the NFT marketplace OpenSea, with all proceeds shared3 among contributors.

By introducing the first-ever community-minted Non-Fungible Token, Metis will create a very different spin on the fast-growing NFT industry. Bringing together a community of incentivized contributors to partake in the “Rebuilding the Tower of Babel” project shows the versatility of NFT activities.

This mining power depicts the pace at which users can mine Metis Tokens in the incentive pool, which goes live after the community NFT-minting event is finished.

Referring friends and other members will increase a Tribe’s Trust, while the referred user receives Metis Tokens as the incentive. The higher a Tribe’s Trust, the higher the mining power will become. Every Tribe can hold a maximum of 15 people, creating a fair and transparent playing field for all participants.

As the airdrop phase lasts for up to five days, community participation will be essential. Following the airdrop, the community NFT-minting event will mint a large piece of NFT artwork, known as “Rebuilding the Tower of…
