Introducing the Blocks
The Blocks is a 3,333 PFP collection for crypto enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
Unlike many NFT projects, The Blocks is built with a long-term business and community in mind – “Mr. Block.” Mr. Block is building a community-grown knowledge hub to educate, onboard and enable the blockchain ecosystem and next generation of crypto participants.
The Blocks NFT collection is the gateway mechanism for our user community with a robust and exciting roadmap! As a holder of The Blocks NFT, you’re joining a passionate community of education ambassadors for the blockchain ecosystem, ready to onboard and empower new participants into Web3 and Crypto.
The Mission
This cartoon represented a disenfranchised union worker appearing with a rectangular-shaped, wooden-block head who often wore a smallish tophat and checkered shirt. He was the victim of setback after setback and was portrayed to be sympathetic to the common worker. In essence, he was a servant to “The Man.”
But times have changed! The Mr. and Mrs. Blocks of Web3 have a different mission and value system: we are champions of the common person and have evolved into the role as leader and educator in the world of crypto currency.
The Blocks are a beacon for the Mr. Block brand mission: to be the knowledge platform for an authentic and educational experience within a trusted and transparent blockchain community.
Join us!
As we explore this new frontier of modern technology together, inviting newcomers, enabling members and empowering all, to a new level of social, culture, and economic independence!
The Art
Based off of Reibe’s original early 20th century character, this 21st century version has taken on a new life while paying an homage to its roots.
Many unique traits abound in this collection that serve to highlight Mr. Block’s mission to drive education across the many aspects of blockchain technology.
Some items give a wink and a nod to other, well-known NFT collections while others seek to drive forward the idea that this is an inclusive community built for everyone.

FINE ARTIST & MR. BLOCK DESIGN ARCHITECT
Blockheady
Blockheady has been a brand design architect, graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist for nearly 20 years. He has worked with large commercial brands such as Clorox, Dow and Syngenta as well as a bevy of companies in the consumer packaged goods space with special respect to brands that promote healthy lifestyles (Burt’s Bees, Naternal CBD, Tribucha Kombucha, et al). His narrative is one that fits well with Mr. Block.
A relative newcomer into the world of cryptocurrency, he began to hear more and more about how NFTs could be beneficial to the artist and creative community and he began to investigate.
He first started listening to podcasts, reluctantly joining Twitter and finally attending the DCentral Miami conference in an effort to gain more knowledge on the subject.
It was there that he met up with the Mr. Block team and they quickly aligned on mission and vision. Now here he is — minting his first NFT project and working closely across the various Mr. Block channels.
