• Matrioska



    Mémé Zuca pushes the boundaries of NFT generative art, working with complex body types, poses and detailed design calling from her surrealist roots.

    Matrioska puts the community and the artist at the centre of the project. We are committed to leveraging stake pool operation and NFT technology for working artists. No scams, no gimmicks, no cash grab, no false promises.

    Owning Matrioska makes you a core member of the community. Just like the matryoshka doll that inspired the project, there’s always more inside: each Matrioska entitles the owner to Nested Benefits. Nested Benefits will include access to our web3 infrastructure services, access to our Ethereum Node to receive operator rewards alongside node stake, exclusive galleries, high quality printables, 1/1 auctions, airdrops on L2s and presale access to future collections.

    Owners of Matrioska will have community control over the first totally independent, community-driven, rural and sustainable Ethereum staking node and IPFS webserver gateway with professional-grade infrastructure.

    Matrioska is committed to spreading our approach to the NFT space and leveraging this technology for the benefit of artists and communities around the world by building the physical infrastructure that makes decentralized web and NFT technology possible. Our Nested Benefits also include access to the framework of the project itself - support for budding artists and project managers, templates and frameworks for new artists entering the NFT space, collaboration opportunities, space for development and sharing ideas and projects, and most importantly, IPFS gateway and a physical file storage server system to rival anyone in the web3 space - no more need for Amazon Web Services for the physical storage and hosting of your precious NFTs!

    Matrioska is more than just another profile picture collection. It is Artist-centred, community-driven and an infrastructural contribution to the decentralized web. Matrioska aims to bring together developers, artists, speculators, appreciators and degens alike to collaborate, benefit and create real opportunities in the space - physical and digital.
