Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are essentially records of ownership for unique digital or physical items. Utility-driven NFTs build on substantial intrinsic value by providing token-gated perks, access, or opportunities that go beyond bare art appreciation.
As seen on Wikipedia:
The Big Bang theory is the prevailing model explaining the existence of the observable tangleverse from the earliest known periods of 2016 through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model describes how the tangleverse expanded from an initial state of high intensity and ambition, and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of observed phenomena, including the abundance of buidl elements, the cosmic development efforts, and largely scalable structure.
Our art represents the grandiose ‘Primordial Landscapes’ into which different primitive elements from The Big Bang coalesced, ultimately culminating in the formation of Void and Mass.
A beginning, for everyone, and everything.
Primordial landscapes became not only a beautiful sight to behold, but their atoms were also arranged such that they would render diverse tangible utilities. At its core, The Big Bang was produced by the mash-up of three genuine primordial elements: art, community & rewards. These were blended and combined in varying proportions, yielding highly unique digital tokens.

NFT Finance or ‘NFT-Fi’ refers to the concept of leveraging your Non-Fungible Tokens just as you would do with any other fungible token or cryptocurrency: buy, sell, swap, stake, lend, borrow… With an estimated $40B valuation of the global non-fungible market, NFT-Fi is poised to become a major narrative over this year, helping transform typically illiquid markets and provide rewards that partially decouple from highly speculative processes.
As for TangleSwap, explorers that acquire their pass to come inhabit our primordial landscapes will enjoy diverse benefits that are unique and particular to each environment. Furthermore, all neighborhoods have one thing in common: when taken proper care of, little lively farms prosper and yield magnificent VOID fruits...
You can find our Genesis NFTs on our official Soonaverse space. The mint price was 500 MIOTA. We opted for a blind minting process, which means that the primordial landscape(s) that you will come to inhabit will be revealed only after minting. Blindness incentivizes a fair mint distribution for the community as a whole, and that is our utmost priority. If there is any particular utility or artwork that caught your interest, we encourage you to find a suitable fellow explorer to swap or trade your non-fungibles on the recently launched Soonaverse secondary marketplace.
No need for whitelists. The Big Bang is open to all members of our Soonaverse space, which is completely free for everyone to join. All you need is a MetaMask address to set up your profile, and an IOTA wallet—such as Firefly—for payments. If you’d like to learn more about this process, please check out the Soonaverse documentation.
The Big Bang went live on April 15th 12022, at 15:00 CEST time (UTC +2). We are fully sold out, but you are always free to find a fellow explorer from whom to buy any pieces in the Soonaverse's secondary marketplace.
