The Metacubs project is a testing ground for critically acclaimed artist collective Pleix to reshape the Metaverse. Powered by crypto analysis platform Coincub, Metacubs is a call to action for future-oriented experience art NFT collectors who are ready and willing to save the planet and its endangered species.
Built around an initial genesis drop of 44 unique NFTs on the Polygon blockchain, the project utilizes technology, community, Metacubs represents the generation that sees the climate crisis for what it is and won’t hesitate to act.
We're heading towards an uncertain future.The environment and wild animals are in danger, ice caps are melting, civil unrest is brewing, and entrenched financial paradigms are getting dismantled at warp speed. Metacubs answers warranted criticisms about the environmental impact of crypto through green investment strategies. Keep reading to find out more about the Metacubs; who built it, what it is, and what the future looks like. We're not experts with tarot cards or crystal balls, but we can predict that this is going to be big.
“Teens are rebelling against their parents’ political inaction on the environment. With ‘Metacubs’ we wanted to pay tribute to the new knights of our times: Greta Thunberg, Leah Namugerva, Lilly—Ralyn Satidtanasarn, Alexandria Villaseñor, Isabel and Melati Wijsen.”
Jose Man Lius - Art Director

Old, destructive ways are being questioned and bad practice questioned but more needs to be done. False values need dismantling as new ways of fighting the environmental revolution are sought – it’s time for the Metacubs!
Tasked with overseeing the future of the Planet Earth, The Metacubs are virtual forces of nature that manifest themselves through the elements and remain hidden until they are needed. Dedicated to challenging the mistaken ways of civilizations throughout the Universe and disrupting the status quo when necessary, their mission is to change minds and harness the forces of nature to fight the decay of the Earth’s resources.
The Metacubs are here to make change happen – at light speed! From promoting sustainable infrastructure and commerce to reversing the decline of the environment through green investment strategies.
The first four Metacubs have already arrived on Earth – with another 40 to follow – where have they come from and who sent them? The only thing we know for certain is who they are and why they are here! With no great Oracle to consult, the only thing we can predict is that the Metacubs are going to be big – and it starts now!
From the spirit kingdom of the Caninae comes the Vulpic god, Fennic, born from the good (primordial) soup, Fennic is a relative newcomer to the concepts of space and time. As a young canine cub, she was, quick to learn and sharp to respond but now she’s tempered his actions with wisdom and foresight. The natural habitat that is his domain has been ceaselessly depleted – the forests and grasslands removed and the rivers diverted. As a godlike animal spirit, Fennic feels the pain of all living things and looks to restore the natural cycle of the environment to help his fellow creatures survive.
Fennic has seen she’s seen countless extraterrestrial civilizations rise and fall – and yet Earth and its civilizations was always deemed as something even more special as its existence was inextricably linked to the balance of the entire Universe. If Earth falls the Universe falls with it, and even the very animal spirits, such as Fennic, who have existed for countless years through space and time will cease to exist.
The template for existence amongst all living things will be destroyed forever. With such total annihilation guaranteed to return the Universe to nothingness, there is no option but to step in – and step up to be counted - for the sake of all. Fennic is here as one of the first four metacubs to help our planet – and its people - make it through another 10,000 years, and restore the balance of Terra Firma. Fennic is multi-dimensional and yet as with all the metacubs, her redlit eyes are what marks her out as an animal god of incredible subtlety and perception. Her vulpic form exists in an augmented reality overseeing all that grows and nourishes planets, from the air that we breathe to the terrestrial crops, corals, and creatures under the oceans. Believe her - we need all of it to keep going.
From the spirit kingdom of the Pantherinae comes the Leonid god,
ChacRa, one of the mightiest of all nature spirits, and yet one of the wisest.
Even as a cub, ChaRa displayed wisdom beyond his years and foresight second to none. Yet, his wisdom is backed by strength and fortitude. Did he see the imbalance in the Universe coming; was he first to spot the dangers from the untrammelled burning of fossil fuels and clouding of the skies? His sleeping form had perhaps led people to think he didn’t care, but now he is roused, will his mighty roar be enough to bring people to their senses – or will he have to step in with the Metacubs to restore nature to its rightful place at the top of Planet Earth?
The mighty Chacra Metacub is a leader amongst the animal kingdom and a changeling of many identities and voices, who is spurred into action when old ideas have overstayed their welcome. A long, long time ago, ChacRa came and helped humankind evolve and nurture the planet for its own uses. He leaves for 5 minutes (or whatever... time is relative) and bam!, humanity is once more making its merry way towards total destruction. As he returns to planet Earth from his unknowable dimension, he seeks to guide those who challenge and look for change, and maybe get in an “I told you so.” He’s earned it.
From the spirit kingdom of the Hominidae comes the god, Hurakan, born in a star system full of harsh solar storms, to say nothing of the weather on his home planet, Hurakan has grown ever stronger, keeping order within the enigmatic dimensions of forests and trees on Planet Brane. His power is awesome and his fury unstoppable, yet, deep down he is still one of mankind’s closest relatives, understanding their strengths and weaknesses and seeing their motivations.
Now as the Earth teeters on the edge of extinction he has been summoned, along with the three Metacubs above to bring the planet Earth back from the edge of extinction. After enduring eons of atrocious weather, Hurakan gained power to evoke the winds of change, harnessing the storms and rains of tempests if need be, to sweep outdated practices and foolish ideas. See his red piercing eyes glow and his mighty chest expand as he summons the power and purpose within. Like an Internet troll, resistance from those who make him their enemy will only make him stronger. Only when all is calm and right with the world will Hurakan return to where he came (hopefully this time with an umbrella).
From the spirit of the Ursidae comes the bear god, Vulcan who grew from a fledgling cub into a mighty force of nature and whose power and strength comes from the centre of planets. She can be placid and friendly when no threat presents itself and yet fiercesome when roused. Like the spirit of the bear from which he is evolved, Vulcan has the ability to lie dormant for centuries and yet explode with unparalleled force. Look into the eyes of all the Metacub gods and experience the unearthly powers that reside within their earthly forms. Red, laser-like beams of penetrating power that can cut through any surface. Vulcan is huge and yet wise, her pale ghostly form existing between the animal and human kingdoms.
She is able to harness the pure molten core of the Earth and disrupt seas and continents if need be. One of the most powerful gods of the animal kingdom of Brane who is as old as Time with the strength to move mountains when roused, Vulcan is a guardian of ores and minerals, oils and gases…the lifeblood of the planet Earth, which must be protected for the future of all. Get on her bad side and she’ll make you wish you were in the End-Permian period.
