This Project is aimed at Collectors. Sneakerheads. Street Art lovers & the Crypto Community.

DNA Swag is Algorithmically assigned to create 7000 unique pieces per character- assembled randomly from hand drawn layers.

Over 300 traits & rarities including expressions, sneakers, headwear, jewels, swag packs & drip.

All are going to THUMP, but some are more RARE than others. No two are alike!

AP characters are available for purchase as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) on the Tezos Blockchain.

The First AP Character, Bitbird will drop November 22, 2021

Whitelist starts 15:00 UTC and for everyone else it's 18:00 UTC

Whitelist.  Fair Launch & Distribution. Breeding & Staking

Tristan Minton - has been true to his roots of sneakers, skating and creating art for the streets. It Was only a matter of time before his fascination for crypto and art were paired.  He has created the art for the Aether Playground with that in mind. The AP will consist of multiple characters. ​​After the Bitbird drop, we have other characters on deck!  Do you like the idea of breeding? We are working hard to create a fun and loving community​​, please join us!



Our vision for this project consists of two parts:

1) We aim to raise the street art vibe for profile picture art (PFP) by providing a unique, high-quality, hand-drawn generated drip. Each character attibutes are hand-drawn digitally in a single layers.

2) After our first character launch, Bitbird, we have lots more in the pipeline.  Breeding and Staking!  You will need 2 bitbirds to breed!

Our collectors and community will determine the value of each character and their traits. We aim to provide an environment where this discovery is possible and fun for everyone!

We have written up an AMA/FAQ on Medium for more information. Please have a read.


  • The main goal of this project is high-quality street art.
  • We have plans to launch a merch store directly after mint for those who want to rep in the streets.
  • Staking and Breeding!  You will need 2 Bitbirds to breed and stake!
  • Your AP NFT will grant you a membership into the Aether with like-minded people.
  • Core AP team is fully doxxed and very experienced! Check out the team below.


What is PFP?

What do I need If I want to mint? What is Tezos?

You wil​l​ need Tezos (XTZ) to mint (purchase) - you can buy XTZ from coinbase or other exchanges. You wil​l​ need to set up a temple wallet for minting. Send XTZ from coinbase (or similar) to your new temple wallet address. Please account for time and gas before hand. You will be able to connect your temple wallet to our website for the minting process. Tezos is the blockchain we are using for ​storage, ​verification and authenticit​y of each NFT. ​

How do you ensure a fair distribution?

The contract contains a provenance hash (An IPFS-hash that points to a document containing a mapping from token ids to a fingerprint of the art). This allows anyone to verify that we didn’t assign ​Bitbirds after minting them. Furthermore, at the start of the sale, the harbinger price oracle ( is used to randomize the starting id of the sale.

What happens after I mint?

After you mint, the token​(​s​)​ will be visible in your wallet and in your collection page. Initially, you will only see ​the egg and all traits will be hidden. It’s only after the sale ends, that the actual Bitbird​(s) you minted​ will be revealed to you. It is planned for this to happen one day after the sale is over.

Where will these NFTs be listed and tradable?

The Bitbird FA2 tokens have their own collection on and can be traded there.

How can I claim the high resolution full size 2048 x 2048 Image of my NFT?

The Full size image can be redeemed by the NFT owner. After the sale, we will have a 'connect wallet' button for verification.

What does Aether mean?

"According to ancient and medieval science, aether (/ˈiːθər/, alternative spellings include æther, aither, and ether), also known as the fifth element or quintessence, is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere."

When will the merch store be launched?

A week after sell out! We want to make sure we have community input on items to start with. Hats first.

How does Breeding and Staking work?

We will be using Hangzhou (tezos upgrade) tecnology for breeding. You will be able to stake 2 bitbirds and mint a new one based on the metadata matches. You need 2 to breed. More details to follow, join Discord channel or follow us on tiwitter.
