What’s The Tejiverse?
The Tejiverse is a fictional reality rooted in discovery inspired by my own experiences. In the so called ‘real world’ I’ve train-surfed, summited mountains, climbed volcanoes, jumped from 90ft cliffs, slept in caves, snuck into music festivals, explored train tunnels, war bunkers, drains.. the list goes on. Basically what I’m trying to say is I’m an Adventurer and now I’m embarking on a new quest — A digital adventure.
Who’s behind Teji?
My irl name is Jet Williams — I’m currently 21 years old and was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. The reason why I’ve decided to dox myself is because I believe in complete transparency when building a brand and community. Growing up in my early teens I stumbled upon Sydney’s Urbex (Urban Exploration) scene — You see, I didn’t necessarily have a normal adolescence, I was never the one out partying, drinking or taking drugs. I was out exploring either above or below the City of Sydney.
The Outsider, The Alien, Teji
Growing up I always felt somewhat like an outsider — maybe because I was always changing schools and never managed to keep one of those friendship groups I could call my own, or maybe because of my bi-racial indigenous heritage which made me feel too white for the black kids and too black for the white kids. Either way I may or may not have subconsciously chosen this little blue alien-like creature now known as Teji to represent me and my brand.
To me aliens represent the unknown — all the things we don’t know about ourselves and the world around us. I find something so beautiful about the process of discovery that’s gotten me hooked not necessarily on what you may find but on the process, the unraveling of the self. There’s so many people, places and things to discover that it can become very overwhelming. I have lots to say and share with the world but as I said it’s a process — This post is barely even scratching the surface of the stories I wish to tell and worlds I wish to build.
The Tejiverse is a collection of 1000 alienated Tejis all living on an alternate timeline. There is no copyright, only fun. The entire Tejiverse ecosystem will forever exist in the public domain under a CC0 licence. The original 1000 NFTs will be a free mint on the Ethereum blockchain and will serve as a lifetime ticket to Teji’s World.
Now the reason why I’ve chosen to create such a small collection for free is because making money isn’t my priority. However, what I wish to do is foster a community of digital adventurers and explorers. I want to tell stories and encourage others to tell theirs.
If you are patient and appreciate the process I encourage you to join our community. However, if you are looking to flip and make a quick profit I strongly urge you to look elsewhere to invest your time and energy. As of now I’m in the process of creating the official Teji lore and can’t wait to share with you what I have created. Till then, happy travels.
