A new tribe of 2022 unique NFTs
by artist Marek Ehrenberger
making the world a better place.
They are blooming, they are mindful, their ideas are distinctive and rather disruptive. Sometimes they ingest 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 manifest a new paradigm: a better world where everyone’s voice is heard and is backed by our community and its funds.
We are The Divergents, represented by individual characters in 2022 unique NFT artworks We welcome 2022 as a year of positive change. The first 500 of us have found our kindred spirits in dedicated collectors during the premint, and our new tribe has already funded the first benefactory projects of our members. We are the change we want to see in the world. Join us!
Each Divergent is a unique artwork hand-drawn by artist Marek Ehrenberger and stored as an ERC-721A token on the Ethereum Blockchain. It grants you one vote for governance in the DAO.
The Divergents are divided into 10 core human
mindsets. You can choose which character is
closest to your heart. Your choice defines the role
you will assume in the DAO.
There is a rumour of 22 special characters roaming
among the Divergents. This special character can
be claimed to our most passionate collectors.
The DAO treasury will receive 33% of the net proceeds from the public mint. With more to come from royalty fees and future NFT collections, it heralds a bright future for the DAO.
The Divergents welcome 2022 as a year of positive
change and a community-driven path. Nominate
your own cultural and benefactory projects in the
DAO to receive financial backing.
Season 2 of The Divergents will appear in Q3/2022.
Current NFT holders will have an opportunity to receive free NFTs, early access & other benefits to usher in the next wave of the movement.
The Divergents are ready to transform not only the NFT space, but also our precious planet through web3 philanthropy. We call on all like-minded people to gather in a new NFT tribe of 2022 voices, full of energy and hope, and united by a shared vision. Take part in this groundbreaking movement, choose the one of 10 human mindsets closest to your heart, and together, Let’s divert!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

After a successful premint of 500 NFTs, the Divergent tribe’s efforts have proven worthwhile. Our members submitted several projects for positive change in web3 or IRL. The community then voted to award 2 grants from the community treasury. We launched our first giveaway and 4 lucky winners won a unique wooden artwork, a physical version of their Divergent NFT, hand-crafted by artist Marek Ehrenberger.
We are sweetening the deal for current NFT holders! Based on Snapshot, everyone who is holding 2 and more Divergents are rewarded with one free high-quality physical print of their favorite Divergent signed by the artist. Your Divergents must not be listed on the secondary market below the mint price by the end of the claim event (31 July).

The future is bright with The Divergents NFTs. A new Philanthropist character is being designed to initiate altruistic efforts of business companies. In the following months, there will be some pretty nifty benefits ready for The Divergents NFT holders - the privilege of artwork free mints, thanks to the Divergents' NFTs close cooperation with artists & galleries. The opening of an online store with exclusive Divergent art will be launched. The Divergents Season 2 will take place - new artist, new concept; there's a lot to be excited about!
Marek is a visual artist, illustrator and graphic designer. He graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and his talent took on further dimensions with residencies in renowned studios in Zürich, Barcelona and New York. His distinctive style IRL combines unbridled lines and shapes, textures and vibrant colours to portray members of today’s ever-changing individualistic society.
The inaugural series of The Divergents NFTs brings Marek’s iconic style & distinctive artistic value into the NFT space. 2022 hand-drawn artworks were designed in the 5-months drawn out process. Marek first designed 10 characters and also background symbols to emphasize each character. Then systematically colored 12 backgrounds and 13 stunning colour tones of the Divergent faces. The whole team then came up with 14 extraordinary features called “edgy extras” that accent certain characters’ oddity and collectability. Marek made unique depictions and matched them to the characters individually to perfectly suit them. Last step was the design and application of the DAO Stripes and creation of the 11th secret character of NFT Guru.
All 2022 Divergents maintain a consistent visual style, however, each Divergents NFT is an original piece of art of individualistic personality, who utilize unique skills for making the world a better place.

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.
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.
