Looking for a primer on NFTs? This should be the last introduction you’ll ever need.
Dear NFT enthusiast,
Following the RMRK team’s Skybreach announcement last year, the desire for more details was high, growing with each month of silence. Finally, last week the team published the most important document in the history of Kanaria–the Skybreach wiki.
This extensive document covers the fundamentals of the Skybreach metaverse, including the origin of Kanaria and their place in the metaverse, world governance and how it could work, avatars, equipables, land gems, and more. For the Kanaria/RMRK faithful, this is a document worth spending a few hours on because it will give you a better understanding of the Skybreach vision.
Furthermore, with land sales coming up, knowledge, as they say, is power. To know the fundamentals is to know how to value or determine your participation. Here is a video to give you a recap of the metaverse and details about the land sale.
The land sale will be happening soon, so be sure to mark your calendars.
Thank you for reading and have a great week.

👨🏼🎨 RMRK Artist Spotlight:
On this episode of SAS, we spoke to Kate, the creator of the successful Chaos Giraffes collection. To recap on Kate’s Singular journey—the 22-year-old artist made her first foray into NFTs in November 2021, netting over 200 KSM from her collection. We have found a great deal of inspiration in this because, at RMRK (and Singular specifically), our goal is to help creators gain their artistic and economic freedom.
In this interview, we focused on her love for Singular—how and why she got started, why she loves the platform, why she thinks she succeeded, her biggest takeaways, and her advice to artists who are still on the sidelines.
