The project will build its own Merch Store and will launch a governance token to further strengthen the community. The liquidity of the token will be funded by sale proceeds from the NFT collection. The official website for the NFT collection inserted one of Vitalik Buterin most famous quotes:
Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchains automate away the center. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly.
