for a mind-bending experiment in the metaverse
Psilo is your premier metaverse avatar project consisting of three species of uber-unique 3D characters. However, Psilo is not just an NFT collection – it’s a movement. We’re taking amazing 3D art, a web3 platform dedicated to supporting mental health, and creating a sci-fi franchise. NFTs are just the beginning of the Psilo empire.

Solve, Allen, and Gurmukh share more about the team, the project’s mission and vision.
We’re on a mission to help shed light on the rapidly evolving trials and therapies involving the use of psychedelics to combat the mental health crisis.
Psilo comes from the word Psilocybin, the hallucinogenic alkaloid found in mushrooms of the genus Psilocybe and are currently being studied to help people with PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety. It’s the future of mental health. With every Psilo NFT minted from the genesis collection of 2,222 NFTs, 1% of the proceeds goes to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). We believe Psilocybin is one of nature’s most powerful tools for both ecological improvement and human healing.
We’re excited about the great work happening at Johns Hopkins, UCLA, Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics (BCSP), and so many others. We’ve been big fans of MAPS and want to donate to support their mission.
“Netvrk is excited to partner with Psilo, a mind bending NFT experiment and journey into the metaverse! …Together, Psilo and Netvrk will push the limits of the metaverse.”
“Imagining new, compelling realities through science fiction dares communities to take action alongside brave business models and build better systems today.”

Psilo Prescription Savings Card
The First Prescription Savings Card in the Metaverse
PSILO has partnered with Capital Rx and Wire Health to create the first Prescription Savings Card in the Metaverse. This unique application of NFTs allows cardholders to save up to 90% on prescription drugs in the United States at pharmacies nationwide. This is the first prescription savings option built on a transparent pricing model, eliminating the high fees commonly and covertly passed on to both patients and pharmacies in traditional discount programs. Holders will simply present their card to the pharmacist to unlock discounts on most medications – potentially saving hundreds of dollars per prescription.
All Psilo NFT holders will be able to claim an NFT of the Psilo Prescription Savings Card in the coming weeks. In the coming months, the card will be available for purchase to anyone in the web3 space. Additional utility will continue to be added for all Psilo Prescription Savings Card NFT holders. Psilo is also working on developing partnerships with other web3 projects to provide this utility to their users.
“It’s the first pharmacy solution at the intersection of web3, art, and narrative,” states Scott Muir, MD advisor to Psilo. “In the future medication will be more accessible, and with enterpsilo.com, the future is now.”

In the beginning there was Earth
Now, there’s Psilo – a water-covered planet that holds an ancient secret. The planet remains under Droid rule, a species of hyper-advanced artificial intelligence, or the titanium gods of Psilo, as they like to say. Once their human counterparts were out of the picture, Droids wasted no time programming Psilo into a meta computer-ship. They aim to transport the entire planet to an off-the-grid utopia of their design.
explore the lore
A Saturn-like ring made of carbon fiber wraps around Psilo’s equator. It’s a hub of technology and home to the Droid military. The planet pulses with electricity– you can see it in the waves, you can see it from space. Vibrant flashes of color streak across the one and only ginormous ocean– like heat lightning. No longer will Droids have to leave their planet for intergalactic travel. The Gilamon, aka the galactic gangsters ruling space, pose a huge threat to planets across the multiverse. They bring chaos and instability by triggering blackholes in solar systems that disobey them. Droids are creating an out– their own stable universe, inaccessible by others.
But things don’t always go to plan. A ginormous foreign object strikes their moon and causes a substantial shift in Psilo’s tides. Being a planet covered in water in an unstable multiverse, shit hits the fan. Waves grow to over a thousand feet tall and plummet the ring. Waves block out the sun and Psilo goes black– the only light is from fiery debris raining down. Droids scramble to batten down the hatches and fortify the ring. Psilo turns into chaos.
A tidal wave of consciousness
Psilo has unwelcomed visitors– Droids aren’t the only ones who want to leave their dangerous galaxy. The Tivali are headed to Psilo to uncover a secret Mycelium network. Mycelium is a gateway into the metaverse– bringing expanded consciousness, enlightenment, and immortality. Obtaining this network would bring the Tivali into a god-like regard as they were once held. As Psilo becomes more and more programmed, the network is in danger of being lost forever. On top of that, the Tivali are wanted for treason and time is running out.
explore the lore
The Tivali are cat-like creatures who shared a planet with humans a millennia ago. Having studied humans closely, the Tivali understand the history of the planet, its beings, and the secrets that Psilo still holds. They believe that Mycelium still exists somewhere in Psilo’s polar caps– the only place on Psilo above water.
Through orbital distortion, the Tivali replicate the natural noise frequencies of the multiverse and travel as if they’re invisible. They mimic galactic screeches and slyly glide through space: direction Psilo. This has worked for the Tivali for centuries, however, traveling in an unstable multiverse is always dangerous. As they quietly approach Psilo, a comet nicks one of their ships resulting in a huge explosion. A domino effect ensues: large chunks of debris get redirected to Psilo’s moon. The vibrations and frequencies of the explosion alert the Gilamon of unauthorized movement. The impact on the moon causes tsunamis to surge on Psilo. Oops.
To the Metaverse and beyond
Unauthorized Tivali space travel has alerted the higher-ups of the multiverse. Time is really running out. The Gilamon are the all-time reigning galactic gangsters. Anyone who disobeys Gilamon control simply gets blackholed. No remorse, no second chances. It’s a way of planetary accountability. If your neighboring planet acts out, you’ll all vanish! So keep a watchful eye on your neighbor and alert the authorities at once– your life depends on it.
explore the lore
As commotion sets off on Psilo, the Gilamon have no choice but to bring law and order. Using their ultra-wide range satellites, the Gilamon zoom in on the newest noise peak and see trouble brewing. It appears that planet Psilo has been testing weapons and may just be causing their own demise. Hilarious. Any survivors, however, will pay the ultimate price.
The Gilamon ready their ships to investigate and restore order– with their blackhole tech programming new coordinates. The Gilamon send out a galactic broadcast of their intentions– it’s best to make an example out of foolish behaviors– and set sail for the Milkyway. Droids be ready.
