NYXXP 2022

SOULs become unique reflections of your biodata after individuated.

Meet, network, make friends. SOULMATE uses AI to introduce people in web3.

The older the SOUL (by ID), the more ancient the FERRYMEN will be.

REINVENTING THE WAY WE MEET

SOULMATE ROADMAP

Meeting in the Metaverse is not going to be "selfies" driven. We are building the next generation of matchmaking tools.

“If we look at references like Ready Player One or Snow Crash, they predict a Metaverse
that doesn’t rely on selfies. We are building a matchmaking AI to support that."
- Su, Chief Data Scientist (fmr Apple)

Soulcestry - DApp showing holders matches across web3.

Soulcestry 2.0 - Metaverse integration.

- The Fellowship 
An innovative small Circles powered community where you can make real connections in web3. The Fellowship works by splitting and rotating people into small groups, or Circles. These Circles are matched by our AI based on SOUL biodata and on-chain behavior. Genesis SOUL holders and Lite SOUL holders will have access to The fellowship. The Fellowship will start as a cross-community discord server and will jump layers as the metaverse evolves.

- The Ferrymen advantage
The Ferrymen
are the only ones able to enter any circle in The Fellowship without a circle-voted invitation or badge. Lite SOUL and Genesis SOUL holders will need the proper badge to join a circle. Badges are issued based on the collections holders are part of.

- Badges with no signature required
Once you join the server we will scan your wallets and attribute badges based on the clubs you belong to.
We've developed an ownership proof no-sign verification tech, so you can get your roles and join Circles without the need to be concerned on exposing your assets.

- Presence
Presence is how we call our verification algorithm. We've developed a safe way to verify assets and establish social proof for SOUL holders without the need for them to fully dox.

- Match
SOUL holders have access to our match machine learning AI, named NYX. Through the AI SOUL holders will be able to experience match-making for networking, friendship, and dating.

- Soul Reader (Explorations of the SOUL)
The Soul Reader is a self-discovery journey where you have access to behavioral insights and art uniquely generated by our machine learning models using your SOUL as seed. Soul readings are great conversation starters and self-discovery experiences.

- Match, Presence, all our tools made available anywhere
Our people discovery and match tools will be made available across communities and, later, integrated into Metaverses as layers (think Otherside, Sandbox etc). As we move from Discord into immersive Metaverses NYX's matchmaking Ai and SOULMATE layers will get  integrated into new ecosystems and platforms. This includes in-game, AR, VR. We are building the future of match, wherever you 'R'.

FAQ

firewalking

How does it work?

The Firewalk is a one-week program combining Silicon Valley culture immersion with an idea-to-stage acceleration experience.
Teams are formed based on our proprietary machine-learning recommender system. Each team gets its own living space in the Valley and are assigned a fictitious startup loaded with real business scenarios. Through visits, challenges and insightful team-building experiences, they learn about the Valley culture and get hands-on with its latest product development tools and methods.
In the end, each team pitches its project for real venture capitalists and take home a documentary film of their adventure.
