Announcing Atlantean Characters: The Next Chapter of Atlantis World

Atlantis World
10 min readAug 15, 2022


A new, energetic & empowering sun is rising in Atlantis World… or it might feel that way for the Founding Atlanteans removing their hood for the first time, seeing more clearly the lands around them that they helped to build!

Until now, much like Atlantis World itself, our army of exploring beta testers have remained robed & veiled on their traveling quests inside the Web3 social metaverse. Marked by the colours of their guild, signalling bravery and togetherness, their robes will be encoded on-chain forever and equipable in future, perhaps even with some iteration (airdrop pending)!

Now, we’re opening the doors for something better, and imploring our community to take down their hood (without revealing their real world identity, of course) and step forth as new, brave & true Atlantean characters!

We’re announcing the launch of the Atlanteans NFT collection, featuring many perks like game walk cycles & commercial rights, including a free mint for Founding Atlanteans!

Atlanteans: The next chapter of our journey

Atlanteans will play a vital role in our pursuit of building a progressively decentralized Atlantis World. Each Atlantean will encompass our vision of a self-sovereign, abundant, and unstoppable network state that will introduce millions- if not billions- of people to human-liberating, Web3-powered tools.

We believe in the freedom of choice, and in the power of communities. We strive for community coordination since day one, and introducing a new form of collective ownership inside of our community will create a stronger, aligned community as well as continue to enable the Atlantis World core dev team to remain independent.

After a year of development and ecosystem growth, Atlantis World has stayed true to its mission and values of building a grassroots metaverse, being fully independent and taking no private money from VCs! We’re excited to announce the upcoming Atlantean character launch!

Well, do you, anon?

Only a maximum of 7,777 Atlanteans in this collection will ever be minted.

1,786 will be reserved for Founding Atlanteans as an option to receive a special Founding Atlantean character for ‘burning’ their Founding Atlanteans Scroll.

If you subtract overall supply (7,777) and Founding Atlantean characters reserve (1,786), you’ll end up with 5,991 Atlantean characters for the sale.

Only (!) 5,991 Atlantean characters will be available for the sale. Period.

Each Atlantean will cost 0.22ETH, exactly what our Founding Atlanteans paid for purchasing Founding Atlanteans Magical Key (was redeemable for scroll) to support Atlantis World.

There will be no auction, no discounts — the price and distribution will be fair for everyone. If you’re interested in participating, read below!

Founding Atlanteans: The Future

As a thank you to our Founding Atlanteans, the earliest supporters of Atlantis World, they will be given an opportunity to claim a special Founding Atlantean character within Atlanteans NFT collection.

To receive a special character, Founding Atlanteans will have to sacrifice their Founding Atlantean Scroll, a proof of early support of our product development and ecosystem growth. The claiming process will be free, only requiring paying gas from the Founding Atlantean (and burning will take place on Polygon, a chain with extremely low gas fees).

Note: Founding Atlanteans will have the ability to burn multiple Founding Atlantean Scrolls to claim their special Founding Atlantean characters, meaning that they’re redeemable 1:1. The act of sacrificing Founding Atlanteans Scroll for Founding Atlantean character will be fully voluntary, though it is recommended for the most utility moving forwards, and the window to redeem your Atlantean character will close after 1 year.

Atlanteans NFT Mint: Step by Step Guide

We’re planning to launch Atlanteans character sale around October / November, stay tuned and ensure to join the Atlantis World Discord for the latest updates!

Allow List Round [ 24 HOURS MAX ]

Since our supply for the sale will be relatively lower, compared to the vast majority of collections (5,991 vs. 10,000) — it’s incredibly important for us to enable as diversified and distributed character allocation as possible.

In order to make it happen, we’ll run multiple allow list campaigns, featuring:

  • Founding Atlanteans
    Beyond free claim of Founding Atlantean character, each Founding Atlantean Scroll NFT holder will have an option to register for a 1 guaranteed allow list spot per scroll.
  • Atlantis World community campaigns
    Our core contributors will lead a series of community campaigns with allow list prizes, among other perks — make sure to join our Discord to participate!
  • Atlantis World Partner communities
    We’ll run a series of allowlist campaigns with our ecosystem founding partners to give their communities a chance to win 2 guaranteed allow list spots per wallet address.
  • NFT partner collaborations
    We’ll choose a number of NFT communities that align with our values and vision to run allow list campaigns with.
  • Community-first NFT & DAO investment communities

Note: Except Founding Atlantean Scroll Holders, Allow List winners will be able to mint only 2 characters per wallet until the public mint round!

Public Mint Round [ 48 HOURS MAX ]

All the remaining (if any) Atlantean NFTs out of 5,991 will be available for public sale on a first-come-first-served basis. A max of 22 NFTs will be available for mint per wallet address — meaning If you’ve minted 2 Atlantean NFTs during Allow List Stage, you will be able to mint max 20 more.

Founding Atlanteans Character Claiming

As stated before, Founding Atlanteans will have a 1 year window to redeem, starting right from the end of the Public Mint Round. Since it’s fully voluntary, you’re solely responsible for your own decision to burn or not to burn.

Characters Reveal Party in Atlantis World 🕺

We’ll host the Atlantean character exclusive party inside of Atlantis World ft. our community DJ performance, exclusive Atlantean NFT holder perks and first giveaways!

I’m in... What are the next steps?

About Atlantis World

Atlantis World is building the Web3 social metaverse by connecting Web3 with social, gaming and education in one lightweight virtual world that’s accessible to everybody.

Essentially, a mobile-ready pixel metaverse that could be stored on a pen drive and played seamlessly on most devices (even an old laptop), combining social features with incentivised interactive learning to onboard users into the Web3 ecosystem.

From creating a first ever Web3 wallet, connecting to new blockchain networks for the first time, bridging assets across chains, depositing into DeFi markets, trading assets on DEXs, trading NFTs using popular marketplaces as well as displaying them in-game and voting in DAOs… all is possible inside of Atlantis World in a gamified way.

We’re building quests and designing novel, reputational and fun incentives so that users can be rewarded for interacting with and learning about these kinds of applications and use cases in-game.

Imagine every time a user is guided through the process of using a DeFi protocol by a scripted non-player character, exploring the Web3 ecosystem as an MMORPG game world, they might earn some tokens, an NFT badge or wearable or an in-game perk (such as a mount, super-power or any other kind of experience enhancer). DAOs could also leverage this to increase participation in their governance, especially when combined with other Atlantis World features like token-gating and voice chat!

The core goals of Atlantis World are essentially to onboard more users into Web3, for example from the 3.4B+ user gaming market, with interactive story-rich gameplay and intuitive, fun learning quests supported by novel, reputational incentives as well as servicing existing Web3 communities with token-gated social events and boosting participation in DAO governance.

Atlantis World believes deeply in accelerating the creation of sovereign individuals globally, equipping people with the tools they need to be financially and otherwise independent.

A Deeper Look Inside Atlantis World

Atlantis World has been building for over one year, with grassroots community powered growth and ecosystem development at the core. Having recently successfully launched an iteration of the early product together with Optimism; over 2000 people took part in an in-game questing flow inside of OP City to onboard users onto the Optimism network, guide them bridging ETH from main-net to layer 2 to pay gas and successfully transact on the network, and claim a reputational proof of quest Quixotic Optimistic Explorer NFT.
