Hasie & The Robots, www.hasiecustoms.com creates original and kick ass design, focusing on limited edition and individual creations.
We partnered for a collection of mountain bike Frame Guards and Mud Guards and decided to do it again for our Genesis NFT. But let’s hear from Johan himself:
It was a pleasure to work with AMS again on this NFT.
The inspiration for this design came from family, the type of friendships and bonds we build with like minded brands and individuals. The AMS Hasie & The Robots family has grown from our first collaboration. This is the ideas machine that is driven by collaboration, with a Hasie flair.
You can view the NFT on OpenSea.
We are minting 10 and giving 5 of them away. Want to participate? Sign Up below:
Why an AMS NFT?
We find the world of blockchain technology fascinating and part of our future. AMS is design, design to express yourself through your bike. We are strong at design and we love to collaborate with other creators, so the possibility to experiment with this new world of NFT was too fascinating to miss.
Why Hasie & The Robots is the artist for the first NFT?
We enjoyed working with Johan Johnston aka Hasie & The Robots chief designer on a special collection of Frame Guards and Mud Guards so he was our first thought when we started thinking about minting our first NFT.

What's the blockchain technology?
In short, is a database or ledger solution that due to its setting can't alter any already stored records although it does allow the addition of new ones to update the stored content. Being it decentralised, seems the perfect solution for business and social needs such as traceability, uniqueness, data immutability, anonymity (in some cases), eliminating intermediaries.
What's a smart contract?
On some blockchains, some software programs can be coded which are automatically executed on the blockchain and allow interaction for reading and writing (updating) the blockchain records using dApps (Decentralised Apps). These programs amongst the most common actions they perform can retrieve content (such as users, their account balances, etc), transfer assets (cryptocurrencies, tokens, etc), authorise actions based on some defined criteria (custody, transfer orders, etc), and sign actions (conditions approval, etc). The smart contracts are deployed on the blockchain using a crypto address from such blockchain with the payment of the correspondent gas fee for the transaction.
What's a crypto token?
Derived from a smart contract to be created on a blockchain (Ethereum for instance), is an object that can represent a limited series asset, service, or privileges in the physical or virtual world.
The most common tokens are the fungible and non-fungible ones (NFT). The blockchain provides to the holders of the tokens the proof of ownership.
The fungible tokens are divide-able and indistinguishable assets with their peers as they have the same characteristics and intrinsic value being the closes thing to fiat currencies. What matters is how many tokens one owns instead of which ones. They can be considered as a monetary unit allowing its exchange and transmission between accounts (crypto addresses, see more on What is a crypto address?). They also are used for granting voting, decision-making, rewarding the contributors' involvement, to be a counter value for real assets (security token), or access to specific services (utility token).
The non-fungible tokens, also known as NFT, are described on What is an NFT?
What's an NFT?
The non-fungible tokens (NFT) are a subset of tokens that differ from the rest as they lack the fungibility property due to their uniqueness so can't be divided nor exchanged. The ERC-721 type is unique whereas the ERC-1155 may have a series of the same indistinguishable token.
What's a crypto address?
The crypto addresses are the accounts for managing the cryptocurrencies and/or tokens on each blockchain. In short, these are already pre-created (not like the IBAN bank accounts) and with the same password (12 or so word-length password) the account can be regenerated or instantiated.
What's a crypto wallet?
Allows managing one or more than one address for one or many blockchains.
How can I create an Ethereum wallet?
MetaMask is amongst the most renowned and easy-to-use tools for wallet management allowing interaction between the browsers with dApps (Decentralised Apps) integrated on websites (web 3.0). You may follow the example on how to create a wallet with MetaMask and get your Ethereum address right away.
