We want you to create and mint your NFT on Elysium. Here are just 10 of the reasons to do so!
1. We’re An Eco-Friendly Blockchain
Of all the reasons to mint your NFT on Elysium, this one is one of the most important. A huge turn-off for many people when it comes to NFTs and blockchain is the sheer amount of energy required for blockchain transactions — including minting NFTs. If you mint your NFT on Elysium, you can rest easy. We understand these concerns surrounding blockchain and the environment. Blockchain can be an energy-intensive resource consumer. Well we care about the environment — Elysium is a carbon-neutral blockchain, planting trees on 70,000 acres of land.
How does this work? The gas fee from Elysium transactions will be used to plant tokenized trees and offset all CO2 emitted by the blockchain. Yes, we’re planting forests; 50,000 ‘blockchain monitored’ trees in Spain is the start of this offset. The trees will absorb 2.5 million kilograms of CO2 every year, ensuring that transactions, NFT minting, staking solutions and other on-chain operations are carbon-neutral.
2. Mint With Either LAVA or PYR
Yes, you heard it right, you can mint with either $LAVA or $PYR. And using ElysiumSwap you can convert many tokens to $LAVA or $PYR enabling you to forge your own NFT collection.
3. GIFT Protocol
Elysium’s GIFT Protocol enables native fee delegation — basically it allows the gas fee generated by a user transaction to be sponsored by someone else, for example the project owner. The GIFT Protocol allows users to experience dApps without the need to develop an understanding of blockchain. We’re removing the toughest barriers for adoption by allowing the gas fee to be sponsored by anyone for anyone.
4. Magma Protocol
Ooh this is hot. Automatic conversion of all tokens using Elysium blockchain to PYR on the back-end using our DEX, ElysiumSwap, on all Agora transactions? That’s the Magma Protocol. Buying any NFT with any ELS-20 token will output the fees involved in PYR (or LAVA) using ElysiumSwap. Protocols to make your time here easy and seamless.
5. Ease Of Use & Cost
No intention of understanding blockchain in any depth, you just want create your own NFT? We’ve got you covered. Ignore the advanced options and mint your NFT using our standard settings. Build your collection, list your NFTs in our marketplace. We’ll make it easy and support is always on hand.
We want you to choose to mint your collection through Agora here on Elysium and benefit from our experience and our awesome community. Further information will be released soon on minting costs.
6. Token Types & Allowable Parameters
Elysium plays host to several native token types — not all are NFTs:
ELS-721 — our Elysium non-fungible tokens (NFTs), dynamic by nature and ready for use as art, in gaming or elsewhere. Individual users can mint ELS-721 tokens through Agora. Dynamic NFTs allow unlocks of images in your NFTs by using $LAVA or $PYR — this means your NFT image can be changed or upgraded should you want that option, it is not fixed.
ELS-20 — fungible, interchangable tokens that represent a single entity. These can be minted by projects joining Elysium.
ELS-M1 — allowing interoperability of NFTs between metaverses and storing / loading entire MetaScapes plot data. This token type is specifically for use with MetaScapes, our Metaverse as a Service (MaaS) platform.
Elysium will be secure. All of our smart contracts are monitored 24/7 through Lossless’s Aegis protocol. Data from over 1000 hacks and exploits is used to monitor for similar patterns and logic, with any potentially malicious behavior blocked at the smart contract level — in real-time and without human intervention.
