Cowboy Smithx

Cowboy Smithx is 1⁄4 of a complex anomaly, existing in the human dimension as a (The Philosopher) civilian curator and community organizer. The remaining 3⁄4’s include Iikaakskitowa (The Artist), Iinaana (The Witch), and Persey Klaw (The Soothsayer). Cowboy is currently working on Nexusverse projects, community events and building the Avatriix Network. Look for Cowboy’s Eccentricus Multiverse NFT Drop coming in 2023.


Jeff Dick

Jeff Dick is an entrepreneur, business owner and the band leader for The Prairie States. He has been interested in crypto currencies and block chain technology for a few years now. He led the charge for The Prairie States to be the first Canadian country band to release an EP as an NFT. The band has had several subsequent NFT releases and they are very excited about the possibilities this tech has for the music industry.


Andrea Kimberley

Andrea Kimberley is a lover of all things nature. She loves making friends with forest creatures, identifying mushroom species or collecting spring water. Some of her favorite things to do is snuggling up with her cat Cocoa and drawing or painting after a day of hiking. Andrea has been described as a fierce and fluffy powerhouse and she loves to create things that haven’t been seen before. Therefore, NFT’s are the perfect marketplace for her obscure art because they open up the entire world to find the perfect match for her work.
