Who is Weird Matter?
Weird Matter is a network based project focused on the NFT space. Weird Matter was founded by three art, design and crypto enthusiasts in the early days of 2022. In the months before we shared a lot of ideas we’d like to pursuit, about artists in our network who should join the space and about the potential of NFTs in general. We decided to start Weird Matter to make all this real.
What is your goal for Weird Matter?
As a network based project our main goal is to bring talent and craft to the space. Showing illustrators, musicians and other artists the potential of NFTs. On this journey we want to give the artists as much attention as the NFT itself, so you will get to know who created your NFT and also how. And since we also know a thing or two about design, we will drop some of our very own stuff as well.
So what exactly is the potential of NFTs?
We believe the use cases for NFTs are almost limitless and will conquer many industries from real estate to the health system and of course the art world. NFT art and collectibles are already a big thing and will be in the future. We at Weird Matter are convinced that NFT can function as a bridge between digital art and conventional art. The key word here is utilities.
And what utilities come with your NFTs?
We want the buyers of our NFTs to fall in love with the artwork, with the creativity and the dedication of the artists and the story behind each and every single NFT. At the same time we would like to give back for the support we get. Holders of Weird Matter NFTs will receive airdrops of future artworks for free, we will do giveaways of analog art such as paintings or prints, free merch and useful hardware for the NFT space. All this in close collaboration with our featured artists.
So what are you guys exactly? Creators or an agency or a platform or what?
We are hard to pin down. Many artists joining our projects are completely new to the space. We are happy to create ideas for and with them, to discuss collections and style, artwork, utility and goals. We consider us to be an idea tank for NFTs, a platform for new artists to start their NFT journey, a network with lots of creative power behind and a launching pad for collaborations and for our very own stuff.
Do your featured artists have their own accounts on digital market places like opensea?
This is one of our goals. After launching a collection together with us or joining one of our multiple artists projects, we encourage all artists to go solo. We want this space to get richer with real art, real talent and really good stuff.
All this sounds great. Where is the hype?
We rather start silently and let this thing grow naturally. We are bursting with ideas for this space and for the use of NFTs. So we rather have the hype come to us than creating it at the very beginning.
So can I flip your NFTs for a profit or not?
Who knows. Of course we’d love the value of our NFTs increase rather sooner than later. But a floor price isn’t everything to us and a buy from a first collector can already make a difference to our featured artists. We also have ideas for collections where you profit more, the longer you hold the NFT. We have the conviction that our ideas for this space will create a lot of interest and we invite you this early to go this way with us.
Which social media channels do you use?
We use twitter and instagram to interact with our community. Our official handles are:
And which NFT plattform do you use?

What collections are you coming up with in the near future?
There are a bunch of collections being released over the summer in collaboration with several artists. Also our Genesis-Collection “Artist’s Artists” will have new NFTs added within the next weeks as well. For the end of the year we are planning to drop our first very own NFT collection. But since everything on Weird Matter is hand drawn and not auto generated good things take time. Stay tuned and follow us on instagram and twitter for the latest updates.
