Ethernity (ERN) is a blockchain-based platform that produces Authenticated Non-Fungible Tokens (ANFTs). Furthermore, Ethernity Chain aims to use NFTs for social good and explore the opportunities they provide in philanthropy. 
Ethernity has already created several Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) collections in collaboration with prominent figures, such as BossLogic, Nicky Romero, and Tony Hawk, and also released several collections commemorating Muhammad Ali, Pelé, and Marilyn Monroe.
The latest Ethernity Chain NFT drop is a partnership with the United States Space Force, called "Armstrong Satellite NFT Launch with Space Force". The NFT collection features augmented reality tokens depicting satellites, mission badges, and coins.
Ethernity Chain is a community-oriented platform that produces limited edition authenticated NFTs and trading cards created by many talented artists and endorsed by notable figures. Built on Ethereum, it aims to build the biggest A-NFT library, reward its creators and raise funds for charitable causes.
Ethernity Chain IDO
In February 2021, Ethernity announced the public sale of the $ERN token on Polkastarter. The Ethernity Chain initial DEX offering (IDO) launched on the Polkastarter on March 8th, 2021. The amount raised during the IDO was around $275,000. 
Ethernity Packs are a major part of the Ethernity Chain ecosystem. 
These packs are priced between $50-$300 USD based on rarity and purchasable in ERN, enabling any retail investor to participate in this community NFT lottery model. Within these packs, users will find aNFTs collectibles curated by the Ethernity Chain creative team. Some of these packs will have randomly inserted incredibly valuable & rare NFTs. Collectors will not know what is in each pack, and there will always be a chance for them to acquire an Ethernity Pack with scarce & exclusive NFTs from authenticated, licensed notable figures or Ethernity Genesis NFTs. 
Selected packs will also be purchasable with STONES. 
The Ethernity Chain token known as ERN is built on Ethereum. The token provides liquidity to ERN pools. The token enables participants to farm unique Authenticated Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) which can be traded like any other cryptocurrency. Users can also use the token to participate in staking and earn interest. Moreover, the ERN token allows users to participate and make key proposals and changes to the platform.
The community can also provide liquidity in ERN pools to farm unique NFT editions which can otherwise only be bought in the public market. The top exchanges for trading in Ethernity Chain are currently Uniswap, Gate.io, Hoo, and 1INCH. 
When Ethernity Chain receives ERN tokens as payment for NFTs (this includes NFT auctions, direct sales of NFTs and NFT packs), it locks 75% of the collected ERN tokens in the Ethernity Chain Reserve smart contract for two years. After two years the team periodically unlock tokens and refuel the Staking & Rewards Pool for Liquidity providers. The cycle creates organic scarcity as the more NFTs sold, the fewer tokens are in circulation.
In March 2021, Ethernity Chain introduced the Ethernity STONES to its community. 
STONES can be used to redeem curated and selected Ethernity NFTs that will only be available to STONES holders via the Ethernity Chain platform. Users can earn STONES by using ERN tokens to farm stones. 
The yield for the STONES will be calculated depending on how many ERN tokens are locked into the farming contract. For each ERN token that is locked into the farming contract, users will earn 1000 stones per 24 hours. So there will be no fractional STONES, and the staking yields are non-divisible and will be stored on the farming contract in units of 1000. If users remove their ERN tokens halfway through the 24-hour cycle, they will receive 0 stones. 
Stones will be held in the farming contract and locked into the address that users used to farm STONES. Users can not withdraw stones to another wallet, STONES are non-transferable and have no monetary value, and users can not redeem STONES for ETH or ERN. So stones will be strictly redeemable for curated and specific NTFs available on the Ethernity Chain platform only.
