Black Sky Nexus is a wiki and zine, for the purpose of developing relevant resources that promote greater engagement and community around the following topics: large-scale cooperative DAOs; open source resources for new crypto explorers; privacy technology and the evolution of human rights; how crypto can benefit the arts; new modalities for healing the ecosphere; humanity’s relationship with the cosmos.
Black Sky Wiki will curate, host, and develop open source resources for the community and we hope to become a leading internet resource on providing guides in which experts can continually contribute towards as the crypto community and blockchain technologies each evolve. Black Sky Zine will include resources from the wiki, in-depth inquiries, informational articles, embedded NFTs, in addition to comedic or sci-fi extrapolations.
We aspire for Black Sky Nexus to be translated into as many languages as possible, prioritizing languages associated with more authoritarian regimes. As a crypto-focused publication, we find it important to minimize dystopia by helping people living in autocratic societies achieve greater financial freedom.

Art is a form of information transmission, stimulating novel modes of communication and connection, opening up new pathways for generating solutions. In building a network that is researching advancements in science, politics, and technology, we think it’s important for artists to play a role in seeing beyond the scope of traditional methods.
Crypto spaces are known to be predominantly male. We are promoting balance and inclusivity by getting more women involved in the community by initially prioritizing women artists who are looking to expand their horizons and experiment with cryptocurrency. Artists accepted into the residency program should be interested in Black Sky’s mission of minimizing dystopia.
Black Sky's first artist in residence is Sun Deep
, also known as Nuspeed and Cryborg, a multidimensional digital and language artist.
Black Sky currently organizes virtual events in the metaverse. Our events are centered around sharing knowledge, discussing ideas, and experiencing the arts. The events allow a place for people in the Black Sky Network to come together and produce something intellectually stimulating and uniquely enjoyable. Our first event
took place on 02-02-2022. In the future, Black Sky plans to organize in-person events around the world with the aim of continuing to provide new avenues for like-minded people to interact and be exposed to thought-provoking material.
A space mission is currently being incubated within the Black Sky Network. Within the Black Sky Network, we believe the results of the scientific experiments should be open patent, and not held as proprietary intellectual property. We believe in putting progress first and this means that advancing our knowledge base needs to be as open as possible. Black Sky contributors and NFT holders will be the first to learn about the space mission and be able to participate in it.
