This Week Azuki is joined by Crypto Punks, Bored Apes, and Crypto Punks at the WAGMI Space Race
According to the official Azuki Twitter, on Tues April 26th Azuki plans to send NFT #40 (named “Bobu”) to outer space on a SpaceX rocket. This is part of Azuki’s “NFT experiment” where owners of tokenized fractional shares that represent Bobu can vote in a “choose your own adventure” style experience on what Bobu will do. However, Azuki won’t be the first blue chip NFT collection to touch the stars. Last December eight NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Crypto Punks were sent into Earth’s orbit aboard the International Space Station (ISS) by an organization called NFTs2Space. Space and Web3 have been combined to create a new sector. NFTs2Space via the Artemis Space Network allows NFT holders to explore outer space using their own NFTs. Artemis Space Network made headlines last year with the first ever space-related digital art. They sent a piece that would later become minted as part of one of Micah Johnson’s Aku NFTs. As avid NFT collectors and space fans, the founders of NFTs2Space wanted to find a way to experience their Space Suit clothed Apes and Mutants in new and unique ways, and so the first ever NFT trip to space was chartered with Artemis as “Crypto Crew 1” on December 1st, 2021. The rest is history. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to see the real astronauts who participated in the February 2 NFTs2Space chartered missions. The cryptonaut crew included a 1–1 NFT, created by Ron Garan (former NASA astronaut and artist), who spent more than six months at the International Space Station. The “Crypto Crew 2” mission also included artwork created by famed private astronaut Dr. Sian Proctor, who became the first Black female to pilot a spacecraft during the world’s first all-civilian orbital space mission aboard the “Inspiration4” mission, launched by SpaceX. Apparently many more astronauts will be taking part in future missions, adding to the experience and legitimacy that NFT holders feel when they send their own NFTs to space, alongside real life astronauts’ NFTs. For anyone who thinks Azuki and BAYC holders are onto a cool new metaverse experience with their NFTs in this new WAGMI (“We’re All Gonna Make It”) Space Race, check out the whitelist at NFTs2Space to get on the next mission.
