Below is our recent interview with Massy Almubidin, Co-Founder & Strategic Director at IncubateX:
Q: What is IncubateX?
A: IncubateX is the first women-led incubator & NFT launchpad on web3. We are utilizing the blockchain to change how people interact with their world through creative NFT projects that have real-world applications for leading industries such as manufacturing, robotics, renewable energy, education, mental health care and more.
Web3 is an infant technology that has the potential to change everything we know about business and create a positive impact on a global scale. Our team, made up of entrepreneurs who understand both today’s society as well as tomorrow’s virtual world, are paving ways in which this new technology can be integrated into ordinary operations, not only for multiplied value & growth, but also meaningful impact.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Our initial IncubateX Membership NFT mint is coming up on June 30! In order to make the access to the NFTs as fair as possible & to avoid having the community compete with bot/in gas wars, we have implemented a whitelist raffle process where people can register to win a guaranteed spot to mint their membership NFT.
The IncubateX mint will be done in 3 iterations: 1) the first 24 hours of the mint will be reserved for whitelisted wallets only 2) followed by 24 hours reserved for waitlisted wallets 3) after that, any remaining Membership NFTs will be available for the public to mint on first come, first serve basis.
Registration for the IncubateX Public Whitelist Raffle closes on June 29, 11:00 PM UTC.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: We are releasing two Membership NFTs on the Polygon network. Each NFT is a “proof of ownership” of an IncubateX membership tier, and offers holders different levels of access and membership-specific benefits.
The Genesis Membership NFT is the highest level of membership in the ecosystem. It grants the holders access to early-stage projects that will be launched on the IncubateX launchpad. Holders of this NFT are set to receive unique merch, NFT airdrops and future token allocations.
The Meta Access Capsule NFT on the other hand, grants holders access to the project’s footprint in the metaverse, which is marked by collaborations with acclaimed artists and web3-forward brands. This includes free unique avatar wearables, tickets to exclusive metaverse events and access to partners’ metaverses.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Our published roadmap states our company’s goals for the foreseeable future, broken down into iterative milestones. Our initial goal on the roadmap is to launch the first project in the IncubateX ecosystem: Onanya.
Onanya is an alternative mental health therapy & wellness web3 project with NFTs backed by real estate in the physical world. The project’s team plans to build Psychedelic Plant Medicine Sanctuaries that support the mission of Onanya; to bring alternative psychedelic plant medicine therapy to the mainstream and aid the indeginous Amazonian tribes that preserve & practice the medicine.
The mission will be supported through the release of the NFT-gamified version of the medicine practice, which in turn will grant Onanya NFT holders access to attend the medicine sanctuaries in person & to participate in various wellness initiatives both virtual and in the physical world.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We built IncubateX as a sandbox for innovation that’s useful for humanity. We’re working on a pipeline of unique NFT projects that touch different aspects of our human experience and create output that extends beyond celebrity endorsed art and short-term hype.
A little over two years ago NFT technology was just another interesting idea that had yet to successfully make its way into the mainstream, now it’s here as an opportunity. We at IncubateX are working to use these new tools towards building upon what makes us human, and delivering NFT value that translates from the virtual to the physical world.
