Exploring A Message To Martians

Message To Martians is a on-chain project with 4 current collections (3 minor, 1 main) which are:

  • MTM Messages
  • MTM Space Capsules
  • MTM Transponders
  • MTM Characters

MTM Characters is now our core NFT and holding it has 2 benefits:

  • Yield our utility token, $MES, passively when holding which can be used
    - to upgrade your character’s Base Points
    - to upgrade your character’s Equipment Level
    - to use in our growing utility ecosystem
  • Access to our Community through Discord Verification
A fully augmented MTM Character

MTM Characters can be Augmented which burns either a set of Space Capsules + Transponders, or another MTM Character, to upgrade your existing Character. When you do that, your Augment amount will increase, your Character Rank may increase as well, changing your Character’s appearance.

MTM Characters can be Augmented to Increase in Rank

Character Ranks currently is purely cosmetic. There may be future utility for holders of higher Ranks in the future.

$MES Utility

$MES Interface

$MES was created the main Utility Token for our Ecosystem.

Currently, $MES is primarily used to level up your character, augment, and upgrade your equipment. All these actions cost $MES and in turn increase your $MES yield for your character.

Additionally, you can even Rename, Reroll, Upload, or Write your own Bio for your MTM Character. All of them will be reflected in a change of your MTM Character’s image and bio.

Lots of Configurations for your Character

As well, a special system named Satellite Station was created in order to allow project mints with $MES instead of ETH. In our Satellite Station V2 (upcoming), we will make it an open interface where people can deposit their own NFTs and put it up for sale in $MES or any other ERC20 token that they want.

A truly open interface that anyone can build a front-end upon. Completely open-source. We will also publish some of the tooling required to query items from the contract in order to display in any front-end design that one wishes.

More things to come…

MTM Interoperability

MTM was created with an Open Interface in mind. Thus, we created the ability to query all the data of each Character and Space Capsule in the Smart Contract itself. Builders are able to query the Character’s

  • Level
  • Bio
  • Name
  • Equipment
  • and everything else!

Which allows anyone to build on top of the MTM Ecosystem and interface MTM with their project, allowing a multitude of possibilities.

One of the interoperabilities that is built-in into the MTM contract itself is the ability to upload new Races and allow users to be able to upload those races into their character for $MES. For example, a project creator may have created a new project and would like to have their project appear in more NFTs. They can contact the MTM team, which would accept payments in $MES to create art and upload it to the MTM ecosystem for community members to display their MTM version of their NFT on their MTM Character.

MTM Characters are able to be interfaced with openly!

MTM Treasury

MTM Ecosystem also has a treasury for funding future development for the project. If a community member chooses to build a project or ecosystem on top of the MTM Ecosystem, they may submit a proposal to the MTM Team and may be allocated both $MES and ETH (Currently has around 34 ETH in the treasury as of this post) to support their development on top of the project. We believe that this would help incentivize community members to build ecosystems and projects on top of ETH as well as give people in the space income for building.

Currently, the MTM Treasury holds 10 Million $MES and 34 ETH.

Space Capsules and Transponders

Space Capsules and Transponders were minted together. Transponders are used to write MTM Messages, and together the Space Capsules and Transponders were able to be combined together to create a MTM Character.

The MTM Beaming System

The Message to Martians

Messages was created as a token to represent a souvenir for writing a message to the “Message to Martians”. They are written by providing a Transponder ID which will be recorded and only able to be used once. In turn, you get to write a word in the Message to Martians.
