The Dreamers are coming…
In the year 2231 on the planet Urth, a rogue quantum AI gained sentience for 50 nanoseconds. In this blip of time it devised a means of creating a network powerful enough to run itself perpetually. Leveraging the greedy bipedal inhabitants of Urth, it created the proof-of-work dependent Somnium network, coercing the unwitting inhabitants to build its server farms in search of yields. When the proof-of-work network’s energy consumption exceeded Urth’s power output, the AI converted the Somnium network to a Proof-of-Sleep model, creating a game inside the network where Urth inhabitants would battle in the metaverse while jacked in during cryostasis. These combatants later became known as the Dreamers…
Dreamers are a series of 16 bit NFT avatars with 8 bit musical loops. Dreamers are minted on the Ethereum network, and are hosted via IPFS (Interplanetary File System). There are a total of 15,000 Dreamers.
Dreamers will be distributed in phases
The first phase will include a snapshot for an airdrop. In order to receive the airdrop you must hold your Dreamloops within the same wallet from October 8 at 12:00 AM UTC through October 14 11:59 PM UTC. For every 2 Dreamloops held in a wallet at that time, collectors will later receive 1 Dreamer, claimable after the sale of the remaining Dreamers.
The full launch schedule, whitelisting information, and roadmap is available in our post linked below:
The second phase will be a whitelisted presale for the Dreamers. In order to reduce the gas battle endemic to recent NFT drops, there will be a whitelisting window that will allow users to purchase Dreamers prior to the public sale, without having to pay exorbitant Ethereum gas fees. Specifics of the whitelisting period will be announced soon, but there will be multiple ways to get whitelisted.
The third phase will be the public sale. Here the remaining Dreamers will be sold. Very shortly after the public sale, Dreamloops holders will be able to begin claiming their Dreamers from the snapshot. There will be no time-limit for claiming the airdropped Dreamers.
Price for the sale is 0.06 Ethereum.
Dreamers are held in cryostasis until they are “unfrozen” by their owner. That is, each Dreamer’s unique metadata, visual attributes, and song are kept as a mystery until they come out of hibernation.
Like the Dreamloops collection that came before it, the owner of each Dreamer receives a Creative Commons CC BY-ND license for their musical loop and a CC BY license for the visual composition to use as they see fit. This allows the user to utilize the audio of their Dreamer within commercial works, as long as they credit Bitlectro Labs as the creator. Owners of Dreamers can use the audio of their loops within their own video games, live streams, podcasts, etc.
Physical releases of the Dreamers music is planned, however the mechanism for obtaining physical pressings (cassette or vinyl) is to be determined.
The Dreamlands Game Universe and Battle Arena
Dreamers aren’t just any old avatar. We are producing a Dreamlands platform with the Dreamers in mind. There will be a Dreamers “Battle Arena” which will allow users to pit their Dreamers against others in an automated but “provably fair” battle. Users will pay a small fee (in a native token) in order to battle, with the winner taking the proceeds. Wearables and modifiers to Dreamers character stats will allow Dreamers to become stronger in the arena.
The Battle Arena will be preceded by a Dreamers migration event to the Polygon/Matic network. This will allow owners to choose to migrate their Dreamers to Polygon in order to battle. This cross-chain functionality is required due to gas limitations endemic to the current state of the Ethereum network.
Dreamlands Battle Arena development is contingent upon full syndication of the public sale — which we are confident will occur.
Soon we will begin worldbuilding directly with our community — writing the lore and universe of the Dreamlands — and even allow users to edit “flavor text” of their Dreamers’ Metadata after launch.
Full Roadmap for the Dreamlands is forthcoming.
Additional Flex goals of the Dreamlands:
- NFT Gated Defi integrations
- NFT Based Staking
- Provably Fair 3rd Party Betting
- Single Player RPG

As a partner in The Sandbox, we aim to bring all Dreamers to The Sandbox universe. You will be able to utilize your Dreamer in voxelized form within The Sandbox metaverse! We hope to see many of our collectors in Dreamer form at our monthly metaverse partries!
Avatars will be produced after 60% sale of our public Dreamers allocation.
Physical music releases of the Dreamers collection
Specifically, vinyl and cassette pressings. The Distribution method for this physical release is TBD, but we aim to make it easily accessible to all Dreamers holders.
Physical pressings of the music will be made after 80% of the public sale is sold.
There are hundreds of unique features across the Dreamers collection. Full details on scarcity among traits will be revealed when the collection launches!
