The Next Evolution: The PhotoSapiens Genesis Collection NFT Minting

As the popular phrase states: it takes two to tango.  The advent of the Metaverse within a short space of time has led to a  new wave of revolution. The Metaverse is, however, not prepared to evolve alone; its voyage has been rightly accompanied by the advent of the Web 3.0 world. . Also known as the decentralized web, Web 3.0 is the third version of the Internet; an improvement over the current Web 2.0 Internet. 

At its elementary stage, the potential Web3.0 holds for the future of the human race can’t be overemphasized. While you may daydream about its potential, the element of risk cannot be ignored. This risk can be mitigated through the implementation of advanced security systems. But, as the Web2.0 experience has shown us, no security system is perfect. Security mechanisms and vigilance are required to combat the new risks that are emerging gradually as Web 3.0  grows.

In order to curb the looming problems ahead, expedient measures need to be employed to bridge this effect ahead. The digital space is already saddled with the problem of digital identity. The need to address this is both urgent and imperative. These problems include issues of robust biometric authentication processes, and users running the risk of transacting with counterparties that are not authentic. Similarly,  users are constantly required to verify and share their data with multiple counterparties for onboarding, accessing, or transacting purposes. 

And that’s where the evolution of the PhotoSapien begins. The PhotoSapiens Genesis Collection will be launched on  5 February 2022. This first collection creates a community DAO and aggregates the choice of generative art options and the opinions of community members who believe in the importance of retaining full control over their identity. When the biometrically verified NFTs are released for public use by PhotoChromic, these NFT holders will participate in multiple facets of the project.

You can think of the PhotoSapiens Genesis Collection NFT holders as the “Founding Fathers” for the future PhotoSapiens. The PhotoSapiens Genesis Collection will be a collection of people standing up for their biggest asset: their identity. Here’s how to mint your PhotoSapiens Genesis Collection NFT:
