Neopets gets into metaverse sponsorship

Published

on

With its latest endeavor, Neopets Metaverse, the popular online service that has inspired hundreds of millions of wide-eyed internet surfers for over two decades through its virtual pets, small games, and community forums makes its Metaverse debut at one of New York’s largest NFT events.

The Neopets Metaverse team will be at the 4th annual NFT.NYC event from June 20 to June 23, where they will do meet and greets, give away Neopets items, and show a sneak peek demo of a Metaverse mini-game.

The Neopets Metaverse team will be offering a branded Neopets snack bar with classic Neopian goodies as an NFT.NYC Silver Sponsor. In addition, they will raffle out event-only goodie bags containing both digital and physical Neopets items.

Carlin West, founder and CEO of Carlin West Agency LLC, and official licensing partner of the Neopets IP, will give a presentation on the Neopets Metaverse and why nostalgia is so important in today’s NFT market during the event.

“Many passions are fueled by nostalgia,” West explains. “One of the main principles behind the Neopets Metaverse project is to capture how nostalgia connects so strongly with artists, gamers, and the NFT community, and we’re delighted to interact with Neopets fans and attendees at NFT.NYC to foster an open discourse around its position in this arena.”

This will be the company’s first time attending and sponsoring an industry-recognized NFT event in person

“Neopets is such a cherished and iconic brand,” stated Jim Czulewicz, President and CEO of JumpStart Games Inc., the Neopets IP’s owner. “While we will continue to improve, expand, and update the Neopets Classic site, we are also excited about the opportunities that the metaverse presents in bringing engagement to our classic, thriving IP while also providing players with a choice in the next generation of gaming technology,” says the company.

The Chief Metaverse Officer, Dominic Law, adds, “This sponsorship with NFT.NYC provides us with a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about our initiative to the Neopets and NFT communities. Not only for Neopets Metaverse, but also for the entire genre of games and nostalgia culture inside the world of NFTs, the future seems bright.”

Dragon Fam is an NFT project to look at

Published

on

Dragon Fam is a true community-driven initiative that focuses on an in-real-life brand, art, and utility. It consists of 6,666 baby dragons in a rainbow of colors, each with their own set of distinctive, hand-drawn characteristics. This project, which is being led by the community and the arts, is bringing together services that are useful to both adults and children.

“We not only want to be a well-known brand on Web3, but we also want to make an entrance into the IRL market. Through the development of our children’s product line, it is our intention to fulfill our purpose of spreading joy and affection to young people. Some of the initial concepts that we are considering include coloring books, toys, merchandising, and smartphone applications.”

“We place a high value on the creative process, and as such, we would like to promote emerging artists by giving them a platform on Medium, Twitch, or Discord. Our Dragon Anti Rug Squad will contribute to the creation of a more secure environment on the web3 and will assist rugged projects.”

Dragon Fam is an endeavor that is entirely community-driven. The development of an IRL brand, which will place a significant emphasis on products geared at children, is going to be one of the initial steps of the project. Donations to charitable organizations will be made using a portion of the profits that will be set aside for this purpose.

In point of fact, the community is the first priority for Dragon Fam, which is why the team began providing IRL functionality several months before the mint was ever established. Users of the official Dragon Fam Discord channel have the opportunity to win real-world currency and prizes simply by maintaining an active membership in Dragon Fam.

Dragon Coin is a proprietary money that is only valid within the confines of the Dragon Fam ecosystem, where it may be earned and spent. The value will not fluctuate at all, nor will it be available for trading on any exchanges

“The staff has put together a Dragon Coin Shop in our Discord server, which will allow you to trade in real-world prizes in exchange for your digital currency.”

“Finding projects that have the potential to become rugs is the mission of our Dragon Anti-Rug Squad, which will devote itself to making the Web3 space a safer place. Before other people spend their money into the project, we not only want to protect ourselves, but also other individuals. In addition, one of our goals is to lend a hand to hardy initiatives that have been abandoned by their founders so that the community can pick up the pieces, locate a new starting point, and begin again. When it comes to the Web3 space, we don’t want to be a part of the problem, but rather a part of the solution.”

CBI unveils a new metaverse platform

Published

on

The second round of the private token and NFT sale for Horyou AlphaVerse, a metaverse devoted to social good and created by game and blockchain product developer Crypto Blockchain Industries (CBI), has begun. Horyou AlphaVerse is now accepting corporate and venture capital investments following a successful pre-seed sale of more than 100 million LIGHTS tokens to a group of innovators and collaborators associated with Horyou and Horyou Foundation.

Qualified buyers may buy up to 600 million LIGHTS tokens during this private sale. Land NFTs will also be accessible. There will be 180,000 Land NFTs in the Horyou AlphaVerse, distributed among 288 districts. There are 278 nation and territory districts in addition to 10 theme districts focused on the UN 2030 Agenda. 160 to 1,800 Land NFTs are divided into streets within each district.

The founder of Horyou, Yonathan Parienti, spoke on a panel at the Metaverse, NFT, and Web 3 conference on June 7, 2022, which was sponsored by Huobi Tech and organized by the Association of Family Offices in Asia and Invest HK

Yonathan Parienti continued to discuss the vision and goals of Horyou AlphaVerse throughout the panel as well as the first components of the world’s game design, such as the regular structures, premium buildings, and the map.

Horyou and CBI are introducing a responsible strategy: “Technology with a purpose” using this platform bringing the metaverse and NFTs together to serve social good. Since 2013, Horyou and its founder, Yonathan Parienti, have advocated for these ideas. The parties hope that this initiative will assist in digitising and facilitating contributions, as well as social and societal responsibilities.

This promise is made in two ways: directly, by making each use of LIGHTS tokens traceable on the blockchain, and indirectly, by giving the Horyou Foundation LIGHTS tokens based on 0.05 percent of each use’s transactions.

The major goal of Horyou AlphaVerse is to promote quicker adoption of behaviors that support sustainability and social good in the actual world. It’s simple and enjoyable to work together, take inspiration from different cultures, exchange expertise, and share best practices in an immersive, gamified environment while also spreading awareness of innovations, impact initiatives, and charity causes.

Riu Plaza Hotel opens its door in the metaverse

Published

on

RIU Hotels & Resorts wants to be a metaverse pioneer. It’s making its virtual premiere with the Riu Plaza. The first hotel to open in the metaverse, it combines reality with digital recreation in AltSpace. This renowned Madrid structure delivers an outstanding real-world experience, which can now be recreated virtually. RIU believes the metaverse will be the future foundation of brands’ and people’s digital presence.

RIU’s goals are founded on the premise that the metaverse is Web 3.0, but immersive and not merely a display

This technology must grow and become more accessible before it can establish itself and evolve like the web and social media. RIU has entered the metaverse with this concept to provide users what they want.

They can visit the lobby and admire the decoration and architectural aspects, or they can travel to the rooftop terrace and peer over the glass balcony or cross the 100-metre-high walkway. It’s all virtual, but it’s still entertaining. Users can pick up, open, and click on items to reveal surprises. Moreover, first-timers get a secret gift.

La Agencia Encubierta, a digital marketing agency and metaverse pioneer, helped RIU build this project. The recently completed Riu Plaza in Microsoft’s AltSpace boasts novel building characteristics and genuine elements that interact with guests in the digital world thanks to this agency.

“We’re pleased of this new endeavor and know it’s just the start.” Technology and creativity will help us design experiences, entertainment content, virtual events, and new business models. We’re close to letting guests book in the metaverse using voice commands. Joan Trian Riu, Corporate Executive Director of RIU Hotels & Resorts, said, “The virtual Riu Plaza is a significant asset for the RIU brand, and we’re just beginning to discover its true potential.”

This is one of La Agencia Encubierta’s best projects. Riu Plaza in AltSpace is unique in design and usability. Real visuals and digital design, plus the ability to reserve a suite, are new. We were able to reproduce an iconic Madrid building since we had access to the architectural designs and worked with a renowned AltSpace builder. La Agencia Encubierta’s CSO and CEO, José Olivares and Jurro Pizarro, are proud of the brand’s interactive presence in this phase.

The chosen solutions, such as the true views of Madrid from the Rooftop 360° patio, make this hotel a one-of-a-kind metaverse creation.
