Ethnology is the study of the characteristics of different peoples, their cultures, and relationships.
At Ethnology, we plan to explore the unique stylistic characteristics of cultural groups, both fictional and real.
Ethnology is a series-based interactive NFT collectible project that breaks boundaries and expands on what being an NFT collectible means.
Each collectible is composed of hand drawn assets that were randomly combined to create unique characters.
At Ethnology, we are a small team of crypto enthusiasts that believe that the boundaries
should continue to be pushed and challenged as the NFT space grows.
We are excited to show you our plans to create cross-series utility for each Ethno
and make this the most unique collectible to date.
2056. If the 20th century was the story of emerging technologies, the first half of the 21st century is the battle for ownership and access of technology. Nothing new there.
But it’s not all bad news. Advances in nearly all areas of science and engineering mean that, on average, humanity is plugging along. Food and nutritional substitutes keep starvation numbers low.
Cheaper manufacturing methods make basic tech access ubiquitous; internet access reaches 97% of the human population.
At the edges, life looks different. Wealth inequality, racial injustice, and extreme climate events force unpredictable shifts in power. Money accumulates in one quarter, a mass revolt or lone hacker pushes back. Migrants move to escape political, economic, or environmental threats, a billionaire sees an opportunity to become a trillionaire.
Punks flock to these contested zones, looking for justice or opportunity. Sometimes both. Untethered to existing social systems, millions of humans—and thousands of humanoid robots—believe the same thing: live independently or become the plaything of governments and the wealthy.
How did we end up here? A few major historical events combined to make the world the way it is now.
They all have a punk ethos: the status quo cannot continue, and revolution is coming.
But ya gotta eat, so earn some cash while you fight the man.
