Meet The Lost Ancients

The Lost Ancients are a unique NFT collection hand-drawned and designed by the artist Laertes. There will be 10,000 unique Ancients, each with their own unique personalities that resonates with their owners. Owning an Ancient will unlock various utility and benefits only available to the followers of The Ancient Council.


Ancient Roadmap

After a long a strenuous council meeting, The Ancient Council members came up with a Six-part plan to improve the The Council for the betterment of the Ancients. The plan formulated is as follows:

I. Ancients Donation Pledge

After the minting process concludes, we will pledge to donate 30 ETH split evenly between two charities chosen by the Ancients community. One charity will be focusing on pediatric autoimmune disorders and the other on mental health.

II. Artwork from Laertes will be sent to random Ancients holders.

Random Ancients holders will have the chance to receive abstract art NFTs curated by Laertes, as well as, physical paintings if they choose to accept them.

III. Physical paintings of 'One of One' Ancients

Those holders lucky enough to receive or buy a one of one Ancient will receive an exact physical painting copy of their ancient free of charge. Upon all one of one holders receiving a painting. A system will be implemented to authenticate the painting's authenticity via their NFT token. Thus, the physical paintings will be authenticated and backed in value by the original NFT.

IV. Merch Release

Ancients holders will receive the opportunity to purchase unique and stylish Lost Ancients merch. This will be a limited one-time release. The merch drop will not be available to individuals that don't own an Ancient.

V. Lost Ancients companion airdrop

Every Ancients holder will be receiving a companion airdropped to their wallets at no extra cost. Further details will be announced at a later date.

VI. The Council

Each Ancient is a member of The Council. The Council will be a physical location built within the metaverse, where Ancient members will reside and interact with one another. The Council's appearance is previewed at the top of this page.
