Accursed Share partners with author Merlin Sheldrake to launch NFT collection


The NFTs are digitally curated from Sheldrake’s studies of three-dimensional scans of thousands of sliced and rendered samples of plants and fungi exploring their codependent intimacy.

New Delhi: Accursed Share has announced a partnership with Merlin Sheldrake, a New York Times’ best-selling author, to launch an NFT collection based on his award-winning book.

The artist-based production studio will launch NFT collection for the book titled ‘Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds, and Shape Our Futures.’

The NFT collection, featuring his book and studies, will consist of 9,950 NFTs created with the help of screening technology and powered by Algorand’s carbon-negative blockchain.

The NFT drop starts February 10, 2022, at 6 PM UTC.

The first 1,000 unique ALGO addresses will receive a free animated NFT from the Entangled Life collection, while the top 100 referrers will receive a more exclusive NFT with dynamic features and surprises.

“Fungi form living networks that can sprawl over tens or even hundreds of meters. These networks are decentralized, with no head or brain,” said Merlin Sheldrake.

Fungi can integrate an unceasing flood of sensory information and engage in sophisticated trading relationships with plants, striking compromises and resolving dizzyingly complex trade-offs, he added.

The NFTs in the Entangled Life collection showcases the symbiotic relationship between fungi and plants, highlighting how essential fungi are to life.

More than 90 per cent of plants depend on this relationship, making it a more fundamental part of planthood than flowers, fruit, leaves, wood, or roots.

Sheldrake explores how fungi form decentralized underground networks with plants, sometimes known as the ‘Wood Wide Web.’

The NFT collection reveals an intimate view at these subterranean roots that make up the base of the food chain and sustain the future of all life on earth.

“Bridging biology with decentralized technology and NFTs is an ideal representation of how fungal networks work together to sustain life,” said John Connor, CEO of Accursed Share.

Merlin’s work explores decentralized decision making and resource coordination in fungi, concepts which can help shape the way we understand and design optimal functioning DAOs and other web3 entities, he added.
