The project also intends to encourage Freemasons from all over the world come into contact with the ecosystems that are being built on the blockchain, that is, this new environment technology whose market capitalization, adoption, and use cases will multiply significantly over the next few years

The 77, the blockchain of union

The first collection will have 77 unique pieces minted in the Ethereum blockchain. 7 artists gathered together, grabbed their tools and created them.

Together, combining their talent, they gave life to the “7 Most Worshipful NFTs”. Each of these animated pieces is decorated with an Officer of the Lodge jewel.

Furthermore, each artist, with their own style, created 10 additional pieces, which makes the “70 Worshipful NFTs”. They did this starting from the most knowledgeable masonic symbol, the Square and Compass.

The artists produced each piece starting from the most known of masonic symbols, the Square and Compass, but were given complete autonomy to use whatever style they wanted.
