In large-format black-and-white digital photographs, Alexander Zaxarov visualizes his version of the "post-apocalyptic world", juxtaposing non-human perspectives, monochrome aesthetic, and dystopian narrative to emphasize the ethereal aspect of terrestrial life.

faq
What differentiates Ethereal from others NFT projects?

Ethereal stands for a slow and more sustainable approach to NFT art selling and collecting. Rather than one large drop, the collection will be auctioned over 33 days (one photo per day) to save on energy and gas, and most importantly - to give collectors time to experience the art on their own.

When does the sale start?

I will communicate the exact time and updates of all auctions in our Discord. Join here: https://discord.gg/Y9Ys7HhaNj

Why do I mint on Ethereum?

I am aware of the gas wars and the environmental impact the current PoW mechanism has. Thats why I decided to drop one artwork per day on the Ethereum Blockchain via OpenSea app. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to acquire an artwork and especially to encourage newcomers to become part of an emerging community. Additionally, I trust in the switch to ETH 2.0, which will positively influence the project in the long run.

How do I purchase an Ethereal NFT art?

Ethereal NFTs will be available on OpenSea website, for a reserve price of 0.333 ETH. By connecting your Metamask5 Wallet you will be able to participate in 24 hours auction. Afterwards you will still have the chance to purchase an Ethereal NFT of your choice on the secondary market (OpenSea).

Why do we strive for a DAO?

DAO stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organizations and will represent our community that include all Ethereal NFT holders. Blockchain and smart contracts are governance technologies that have the potential to provide higher levels of transparency while reducing bureaucracy with self-enforcing code. This potential of decentralized decision making and areas of application is the reason the ErtherealDAO will be a transparent and innovatiove organization. In the future I want to fully give you the power to vote on decisions of the EtherealDAO, because I believe that this is the only natural evolution of any NFT project. Once we reached a point where this approach gets more serious, I will create some more knowledge and informational content and create full on transparency.

Why number 3 (33 artworks, 0.333 ETH, 33% etc.)?

The ancient Greek philosophers, postulated that the meaning behind numbers was deeply significant. The number 3 is considered as the perfect number, the number of harmony, wisdom and understanding. It was also the number of time – past, present, future; birth, life, death; beginning, middle, end – it was the number of the divine.

What is ‘minting’?

This refers to the act of turning a digital asset (in our case a Ethereal photograph) into part of the Ethereum blockchain.

How do I connect with the community?
