Whether you’ve been with us from the hop or have just arrived to the party, here’s a timeline of our journey to the open metaverse together so far.
The collection that started it all. On this fateful day, we dropped our genesis Flufs to the founding members of the Fluffle; 10,000 metaverse-ready rabbit avatars, each with their own unique features and stories to tell.
Our first-ever 11th Hour Podcast episode aired this month, growing into a fortnightly staple featuring exciting industry guests, artists like Dillon Francis, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, and Disclosure, who made a track live on air.
The Underground is your Web3 portal to the metaverse and customisation of the FLUF World collections you love. The launch of the UG brought downloadable content, our online store and paved the way for scene & sound swapping.
Thingies are 10,000 spider-like critters, packing untold surprises. Programmatically generated, each Thingie is a metaverse-ready 3D avatar artist powered by Altered State Machine AI, capable of producing its own NFT art.
Altered State Machine initiated their mission to bring accessible AI to the open metaverse, dropping their genesis AIFA boxes. Each box included four AIFA All-Stars and a Gen 1 ASM brain, with Fluf holders whitelisted for the mint.
Scenes & Sounds are interchangeable environments and music tracks to use with your FLUF World avatar collections. Since launch, we’ve dropped exciting limited edition collaborations with artists like Young & Sick, Mike Shinoda, Nachei, Zigor and more.
Enter the metaverse high life. In January ‘22, we dropped Burrows, our virtual metaspaces sporting premium amenities and a top-of-the-range production studio, in collaboration with hip-hop OG, Snoop Dogg.
Bryne’s efforts shone a spotlight on the Auckland City Mission and we wanted to rally the community to contribute further. Through a 24h auction of some Flufs and Snoop Dogg Burrows, we were able to raise over $1M for the charity.
Up next on our FLUF Haus party hop, we ventured to LA for a Fluf X Party Bear clash like no other during Superbowl. Special guest artists like T-Pain & Chromeo kept the vibes high, before Angelbaby dropped in for another performance broadcasted live from the metaverse.
Fuck the War Ukraine Charity Mint
With the world reeling from the Ukraine invasion and the hardship their citizens were enduring, we launched a charity mint of a limited edition ‘Fuck the War’ scene, raising over $400,000 for humanitarian support groups and NGOs.
Going Carbon Regenerative
A proud moment in FLUF World history. On this day, with a donation of NZ $234,711 we officially offset all of our carbon emissions to date by 200% via CarbonClick.
Alongside ASM, Seekers, PartyBear, CENNZnet and other ecosystem partners we travelled to Austin, Texas to host the metaverse portion of the world’s leading tech festival South by Southwest (SXSW).
FLUF Haus SXSW
Panels by day, parties by night. After long deep dives into the open metaverse at SXSW, we turned up the volume at 2 special-edition FLUF Haus events, featuring guest artists like Young & Sick, Mija and Dillon Francis.
Seekers flew into FLUF World bringing decentralised communication to our open metaverse. As Sylo’s genesis NFT collection, they’re a major key to unlocking new opportunities and bridging the gap between other meta worlds and communities.
In an exclusive partnership with leading SFX and film industry titan, Wētā Workshop, we collaborated to release 3,003 Rayguns; a creative meeting of FLUF World and Wētā’s own franchise, Dr. Grordbort's.
With Party Bear’s companion collection Buzzies’ on the way, we dropped HNI Pots to Party Bear holders: Hydrothermal Nectar Infusers, capable of attracting Buzzies back to the Underground to join the party.
In June we launched parent entity Futureverse - our open metaverse infrastructure consists of FLUF World ecosystem, Sylo’s decentralised comms protocols, ASM’s AI protocols, and our native blockchain the Root Network, in partnership with leading blockchain provider Ripple.
The Futureverse Foundation is a not-for-profit charity launched in collaboration with leading artists and philanthropists Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves. As the charitable arm of Futureverse, the foundation will see that underrepresented artists and creatives are given space to thrive in this developing digital economy.
We provided all Fluf holders with FBX and GLTF files of their Flufs, 3D game-ready models enabling our community to animate and create in a new medium and answering the age-old question: Wen Legz?
The creative potential of Thingies came to life when the first stage of Thingies Utility launched in the Underground. Thingies gained the ability to create AI Artwork, becoming the world’s first digitally created art capable of producing digital art.
The Next Legends
The Pros entered the Greatest Gym in the Muhammad Ali - The Next Legends Pro Pack Mint, the first release in our AI metaverse boxing game, a collaboration with Altered State Machine & ABG.
Our friends at Altered State Machine launched the FIFA: AI League, a game made in collaboration with FIFA just in time for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. This is the most significant partnership in Web3 to date and a momentous milestone for our ecosystem.
Fluflets will be hopping into the mix soon - our Gen2 Fluf collection of fun & fashionable offspring, opening up a world of gamification, customisation and exciting utility.
$ROOT is our native token, set to power FLUF World’s ecosystem, economy, and decentralised blockchain, The Root Network. With some allocation towards holders of genesis assets, the launch of $ROOT will mark the beginning of the next major phase in the evolution of FLUF World and the Futureverse.
