The Aquarium de Paris, the oldest public aquarium in the world with the largest collection of jellyfish outside of Japan, teamed up with Metaseum to launch a first-of-its-kind scientifically accurate marine biology NFT Collection.
The collection of 1,234 Jellyfish based NFTs was launched last December 16th and consists of a random combination of 60 visuals of 3D-modeled jellyfish and 24 unique backgrounds.
Their Latin names, morphologies, tentacles, scientific families, hazard index, geographic locations, and ages have been verified by a team of marine biologists and for the first time in the history of NFTs, metadata allows the scientific traits to be categorized.
The NFTs in the Jellyfish collection were created with marine life awareness in mind. Acquiring a Jellyfish NFT is also a way to share knowledge, especially about animals as little known to the public as jellyfish, and of course, to support the Paris Aquarium’s research resources for the preservation of species.
In addition, the NFT entitles you to exclusive benefits, such as unlimited free admission and private guided tours to the Aquarium, invitations to special events, access to scientific knowledge, to exhibit your art in the metaverse, and much more!
In 2023, The Aquarium de Paris will also launch the Aquarium’s metaverse space, making it the first aquarium in the world to enter the metaverse.
You don’t need to own a crypto-currency or wallet to get one Jellyfish’s NFTs.
Experienced NFT collectors can of course monetize their wallets with Ethereum.
The collection displays 1,234 NFTs on the Metaseum website.
