What is Portals?

The Portals NFT series encourages you to travel to the world’s most famous landmarks as they are today. The project underscores the fragility of our physical world and we’re offering a way to immortalize your experience at these monuments through the immutable blockchain.

What Will You Find at Every Landmark?

We are launching with six landmarks to start and will be rolling out more as the community develops. At each landmark you will find 1,100 Portal NFTs with various Portal rarity levels. The most plentiful reality being the common world and the rarest being Utopia.

Do I Need to Travel to the Location to Mint the NFTs?

In order to mint these NFTs you must physically travel to the landmarks. That said, Portal NFTs can be bought, sold or traded on our secondary marketplace which does not require travel.

Earning $LOST Tokens with Portals

For every Portals NFT you mint, you will receive rewards in the form of 10 $LOST tokens. Other mechanisms for earning include:

  • Minter dividends — the first 20% of mints are eligible to earn LOST on all subsequent mints that happen at a single location, until full mint.
  • Achievements— Utopia card collectors can claim the achievement and receive 500 $LOST tokens. You also receive a non-tradeable NFT badge for completing the achievement

How Much Do Portal NFTs Cost?

Each NFT will cost a flat 1.5 $AVAX.
