With humanity as the core value, 2117 is a fully immersive metaverse experience of the colonization of Mars. Join guest Amin Al Zarouni, CEO and Co-Founder of Bedu, a web3 consulting and development business headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, to talk about the 2117 Mars colonization metaverse in this Episode #188 of The Nifty Show. 

Following the UAE’s vision to colonize Mars by 2117, we are building a full experience for people who will not be around in the next century to live it for themselves. 2117 will allow participants to be a part of the journey in such a way that they can help prepare for the future real-life colonization of the red planet.

As 2117 is a story driven metaverse, the citizens will be participating in a scripted adventure beginning with the rocket launch and space travel from Earth to landing on Mars. Citizens will have the opportunity for input into story trajectory along the way. Story elements will be released throughout the experience that guide the citizens to complete tasks, quests or participate in events and games. Successful tasks and wins will result in rewards and story progression, for both individuals and the collective society. Visitors will be able to also earn or win rewards, with the ultimate prize being full citizenship. There will be peril along the way, but a strong community will ensure success. 2117 is designed to have a fully functional society and economy based on equality, community, and interconnectedness.

The end of October 2022 is the only time where citizenship will be offered for a mint price of .2117 ETH. Public sale at .25 ETH
