National Geographic’s Genesis NFT Collection, “GM: Daybreak Around the World,” is live today via blind drop.

The collection brings together 16 National Geographic photographers and digital artists to register daybreak around the world, and honors National Geographic’s 135th anniversary.

Mornings (aka GM) signal a chance to grow, connect, contribute, accomplish, and experience through renewal, possibilities, and boundless opportunity. The Collection signifies that in the next 135 years Nat Geo will push the boundaries of innovative storytelling further, promote access and inclusivity, uplift our creators and photography as a powerful medium to tell impactful stories.

It’s a new dawn of exploration where storytelling extends into web3, while making good on the mission to “Illuminate the Wonder of our World.”
