What is Mission NFT?

Mission NFT is a yearly technology event, spanning over three days of non-stop technical talks, workshops, competitions, and coding. For 60 hours straight, around 1000 participants can enjoy world-class presentations, demos, community events, and its classic 48-hour coding competition.


Who submits to Mission NFT?

Mission NFT is targeted at creative minds with a hacker spirit (in the classical definition of the word). Anyone with a technical profile is welcome to apply, not only engineers (eg. web designers are welcome too).


How are applicants selected?

Telos Mission NFT curators aim at selecting the best, most participative, and motivated, programmers and creatives. For this, they rely on what candidates fill in their profiles (their pitches and personal bios) and evidence of engagement in previous editions (if applicable). CVs don't matter, please don't paste full CVs as an application pitch. What matters is your potential and your passion for technology, no matter your level of experience.


How much does it cost?

Mission NFT is free for all selected candidates.

Why should I make an NFT if I'm an Artist?

 NFTs presents a new frontier for what artists are capable of.  Whether it be 1/1 artists or a generative approach, the concept and utility of NFTs are something no artist should ignore. There is also the added value that your work takes up no physical space and can sell several works in one marketplace. The potential for it to be a decent revenue stream for any working artist is reason alone to investigate further. 

What's this Utility I keep hearing about?

NFTs allow art to become something more when wed with the technological aspect of cryptocurrencies and smart contracts. Foremost NFTs have an automatically triggered royalty that ensures the creator gets a percentage of each transaction on the work. As well, for those savvier with code, NFTs can open a vast universe of potential in what they can bring to their communities and customers (ie Staking, passive income, airdrops, etc...)

 What secondary markets sell NFTs?

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system. A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain.

What is a “wallet”?

Your crypto wallet is where you can view your cryptocurrency assets and transactions, all in one place. It’s also where you confirm any transactions in process. Different wallets have different features. For example, some allow you to view NFTs from a smartphone. Popular wallets include Metamask, Coinbase, and Phantom.

What is “minting”?

NFTs are created through a process called minting. On the Ethereum network, a command is run that creates the NFT as an immutable record, providing it with a unique hash that contains all of the metadata. The metadata stores key contextual information about your NFT, like its current ownership and transaction history. Sites including byt.io, art. pizza, and etherscan.io allow you to view your NFT collection and NFTs in other collections. Each blockchain has its own set of tools to view transaction data and minting information.

What are ‘Gas’ or minting fees?

The blockchain depends on processing power provided by a decentralized network of computers. Minting fees often called “gas fees” are what the members of this network earn in return for the processing power they provide. Gas fees can fluctuate according to the amount of traffic on the blockchain at any given moment but cannot be avoided. To limit wide fluctuations and avoid high fees for our fans, a flat fee of $75 will be automatically added to each NFT purchase.

What makes an NFT different from other kinds of digital art?

Traditional works of art such as paintings are valuable precisely because they are one of a kind. But, digital files can be easily and endlessly duplicated. With NFTs, artwork can be "tokenized" to create a digital certificate of ownership that can be bought and sold.
