Introducing Our
'STARlaunch'
NFT Collection

It is time to build a community of changemakers and bring vision, hope and inspiration to the world.

Metavisionaries STARlaunch collection comprises 10,000 tokens and voyages us through galaxies, to outer space so we experience the world from above, where borders are invisible, where racial, religious and economic strife are nowhere to be seen.
There are no boundaries on our planet except those that we create in our minds or through human behaviors. All the ideas and concepts that divide us when we are on the surface begin to fade from orbit and the moon. The result is a shift in worldview, and in identity.

Created by @Ayesha Mubarak Ali, internationally acclaimed fusion Tech-Artist, each token opens up the heart, sparks a revolution in how people think about themselves, the Earth, and humanity’s place in the universe. The big -picture perspective allows new vision to emerge and inspires us to find a unique voice and be the force for change in the world.

Why Space?

Space and Low Earth Orbit in particular offers unique assets:
  • Little gravity
  • Extreme conditions through space exposure
  • Unique vantage point
  • Limitless inspiration
Space and microgravity allow for a better understanding of stress mechanisms of plants and plants adaptation to a new environment never before experienced. The unique vantage point of space and Low Earth Orbit provides the agricultural community unique perspectives on sustainable crop production and water usage.

Capturing change of our Earth system through observation from space may allow for breakthrough initiatives and ideas related to Earth’s climate. The use of Earth Observation data from space has been used by the mining industry to identify geological features and can also be used for logistic chains or extraction operations
