“On September 15, 2022, we took an important step in the progression of the Ethereum roadmap in the shape of the Merge. Ethereum, the world’s largest programmable blockchain, transitioned to the Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, reducing the network’s energy consumption by 99.99%, among other major implications.
ConsenSys celebrated this historic moment with Regenesis, a collection of art NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that were a testament to the capability of decentralized software development. The collection comprised two sets of NFTs. The first was a set of commemorative NFTs that ConsenSys presented to the Ethereum Core Developers (Core Devs), researchers, and client teams as a token of our gratitude for the work they put in to build an Ethereum that was more sustainable, more secure, and more scalable.
The second set of NFTs in the collection was an open edition NFT of Regenesis that anyone with a web3 wallet could mint. Regenesis was forever tied to the birth of PoS Ethereum, as it holds one of the first NFTs that was minted on Block 1. The open edition NFT was also one of the most distributed NFT drops in the history of Ethereum, with 327,600 mints.
Now, as we are nearing another milestone in the Ethereum roadmap, the Shanghai/Capella upgrade, ConsenSys is back with another NFT collection. We are inviting web3 enthusiasts from all over the world to participate in this landmark technological achievement by claiming an NFT here.”
