Psilo NFT Project
unique characters are awaiting you in the Psilo metaverse avatar project created by Gurmukh Bhasin. The individual traits were assigned to each character via custom generative algorithm, then registered on the Ethereum blockchain.
The phase I release minting will consist of:
500 NFTs are Reserved for Marketing, Strategic Partners, and Giveaways to our community. 88 NFTs are Reserved for Team Vault.

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.

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.
The storyline is in-depth and presents psilocybin in a positive light, where the Tivali, a character and the hero of the story, is on a mission to track down the Psilo network and enter the metaverse (which is analogous of expanding ones consciousness for the purposes of our story). 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 original collection of 8,888 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. Therefore, we support researching psychedelics for healing the psyche. 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.
Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies
Founded in 1986, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.
Psilo is your premier metaverse avatar project consisting of three species of uber-unique 3D characters, created by Gurmukh Bhasin (Top 100 3D Artists in the world by 3D Artist Magazine) with a team of self-proclaimed long time crypto geeks.
Why buy a Psilo NFT?
We’re different– seriously. Psilo comes from the word Psilocybin, the hallucinogenic alkaloid found in mushrooms and currently being studied to help people with PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety. It’s the future of mental health.
A project worth giving
With every Psilo NFT you mint a percentage of the proceeds goes to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). Psilocybin is one of nature’s most powerful tools for both ecological improvement and human healing. We support researching psychedelics for healing the psyche.
The NFTs themselves are unparalleled
Passion drives this project as the team worked hard to create a full world worth realizing. This fidality of art work has not yet been seen in the metaverse as the art goes above and beyond. Just check out the detail– it’s insane. Renowned artist Gurmukh Bhasin spent a scary amount of time designing and building the Tivali, Droids, and Gilamon. There are no cutting corners when it comes to this collection.
Hello world, a world worth building
Psilo already has a whole world revolving around it. We invite you to check out Psilo’s story, our discord community, and the potential of having your NFT used as an avatar and beyond. We are currently vetting companies to try and make this dream a reality.
