We have been extremely impressed and are super thankful to all of the community members who came forward with various concepts and ideas through the #community-ideas channel (on Discord) to find a solution to the problem we are facing wi...

Finding rarity

10 November 2021

Rarity ranking When we released the explorers our mind was focused mostly on the unique combinations and narratives that can be built around each of the characters. While most certainly some attributes are rarer than others, the "looks" of each explorer is what we personally value the most and we t...

Halfway to the moon

04 November 2021

In the same way that Jules Verne aimed for the moon and ended up with 10k clones all over the place, our project didn't go exactly as planned. We are however very happy with how it all went, no little thanks to our awesome community (yes, you). In just under a week, we are the 5th biggest project i...

The story of THE EXPLORER GUILD

23 October 2021

It was a mild autumn evening. The weather was grey and a light breeze caressed his face. Jules Verne sat on one of the benches in the botanical garden, facing the lake. It was cold in Amiens in October 1895. The pigeons were clucking to keep warm and the ducklings were all out of the water. As he u...

THE EXPLORER GUILD - 10 000 NFT COLLECTION

10 October 2021

05 October 2021

Photo credit : executim $30M+ in BTC rewards to folks since the Stacks mainnet launch this year. What factors determine the reward rate?

Jude Nelson: App Chains

27 September 2021

Image credit : axopoa Blockchains don't scale. The fact that all nodes process all transactions means that the blockchain only goes as fast as the slowest node allowed on the network. If that's something like a Raspberry Pi, then that's as fast as the blockchain goes. And that's okay! The upside i...

From 0 to Sigle: The vision

20 September 2021

Sigle started as a side project created by 2 "buidlers" and we didn't know where it would lead us. At that time (in 2019), decentralised blogging was not yet a thing and there were no good 3.0 platforms to enjoy writing pseudonymously on a daily basis. Our goal was to provide a way for users to easi...
