Manifesto

Divergent future pioneering

They are blooming, they are mindful, their point of view is distinctive and rather disruptive. Some of them are mesmerizing mystics and Gaia worshippers, others are digital mages lost in the metaverse. Sometimes they swallow magic mushrooms to break through the limits of their minds; at other times they just go with the flow – until they don’t. The Divergents are here to reconfigure the new world paradigm.

Recognising the overwhelming impact of humanity on the planet, we are responding to the challenges of universal responsibility and sustainability – each in a very individualistic way. We are The Divergents, 2022 unique characters divided into 10 tribes of different human mindsets. We welcome 2022 as a year of positive change. Let’s meet in the DAO to fund benefactory projects and govern the community treasury.

The Artist

Whether you are a visual artist, musician, filmmaker, or writer, you are the lightning rod through which the Universe expresses itself. Your contribution to the global village is invaluable.

The Animal Spirit

You understand that animals are a vital part of our ecosystem, and as such, need our protection. A vegan, vegetarian, wildlife conservationist or animal sanctuary carer, you are a voice to the voiceless.

The Digital Alchemist

In AI, AR, VR, 3D or gaming, you see the digital realm as the natural extension of you. By navigating the virtual world with an ease that borders on the visionary, you help make it functional and user-friendly.

The Environmentalist

You see our planet as a living, breathing organism, a biosphere perfectly attuned to maintaining life. You are passionate about sustainable development, biodiversity, and innovation to holistically reshape the future.

The Good Samaritan

You stand by the high principles of peace, justice and duty to your fellow man. You express yourself in acts of kindness, charity and philanthropy. You don’t explain your philosophy, you embody it.

The Equality Defender

You are a profound defender of human rights. You believe the ties that bind us are stronger than those which keep us apart. You call out sexism, racism, homophobia and gender-based discrimination wherever you find it.

The Mindful Master

You acknowledge your spiritual being, and look for transcendence in the everyday. You rely on self-awareness and intuition and you help others come back to themselves through meditation, centering and healing.

The Thinker

Your dynamic ideas are lending themselves seamlessly to the real world through politics and the social sciences. A philosopher at heart and teacher in spirit, your influence reaches far beyond the page or social media.

The Inventor

By thinking outside the box, you drive society forward in science and industry. By engineering a brighter, more efficient future, your revolutionary mechanistic notions move both minds and the wheels of progress.

The Entrepreneur

You are convinced that we can all do better - in business, finance and leadership. Your strategic skills make you a start-up pioneer, entrepreneur or corporate rule-breaker. You are a calculated risk-taker and disruptive thinker.

Ehrenberger

Visual artist, illustrator and graphic designer. He graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and worked in studios in Zurich, Barcelona and New York. His distinctive style combines unbridled lines and shapes, textures and vibrant colours, often portraying prominent members of today’s ever-changing individualistic society. The collection of divergent personalities is based on this concept, but with a different narrative aspect and a distinctly original conclusion. The Divergents are a new generation: although individualistic, they utilize their unique skills for the Greater Good.

For the most up-to-date information you can follow us on our Twitter or look out for announcements in our community on Discord. You can also read more about what inspired The Divergents and our journey at our Medium profile. You can also always approach us directly with any questions on our Telegram.

What can I do with my Divergent NFT?

You can use your NFT as PFP (picture for proof and profile picture). By this, you manifest that you are not indifferent to the overwhelming impact of humanity on our planet and that you want to stand alongside other global Divergents to restore balance and assume a role in universal responsibility. To do so, we will unite our efforts in the DivergentDAO and make the first steps towards positive change. You will be a member of one of the 10 tribes of Divergents (based on 10 human mindsets) and be able to vote on the best initiatives to be funded. By holding one of the Divergents you will be able to take part in our Anti-Divergent gamified event, have a chance to receive a free NFT from our Season 2 launch and have early access to other benefits. We will also work on partnerships with other NFT projects and external companies to provide benefits for our Divergent community.

What is the DAO?

A Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) is a relatively new concept, inspired by the decentralization of cryptocurrencies. DAOs are transparent as their financial transactions are run on the blockchain. It's a revolutionary concept because it’s an innovative way to structure organizations to achieve a certain goal as an anonymous digital community. Each DAO member has the opportunity to participate in the process of decision making (governance). DivergentDAO is a one-of-a-kind social experiment, not only because it is based on 10 human mindsets, but also because part of our vision is to provide financial backing for projects that aim to create positive change on our planet. Within their tribe, members of DivergentDAO can initiate their own benefactory and cultural projects for both physical and digital communities. Our intention is to build DivergentDAO into a durable global platform that works with an altruistic community spirit. Find out more in the article “How will DivergentDAO use NFTs to initiate positive change from the bottom upor join our Discord channel to ask us directly.

What will happen if the collection is not minted out?

If the collection is not minted out, we will continue with our marketing initiatives, cooperation with other projects and follow our road map as planned to meet all the commitments. We will still welcome new Divergents, as it is a crucial part of the whole project and its destiny. The beginning of the Divergent movement may be gradual, but it is still significant.
