This is the second installment of initiatives and startups that are helping NFTs gain popularity around the world powered by the Metaverse Insider. In case you missed the first one in the series, here’s the link to it.
1. New Mexico NFTs
New Mexico NFTs strive to be at the forefront of developing creative, new, use cases for the rapidly evolving blockchain and NFT technologies. It aims to maximize the reach and impact of art, memorabilia, collectables, experiences, and audience engagement. It does this not only as consultants but as thought partners with clients and the community.
New Mexico NFTs was established in 2022 by Chris Perkins, Bill Halverson and Benjamin Hensley. The founders are committed to and driven by social impact, equity, sustainability, and transparency as we grow our business and clientele. As they are all New Mexicans, friends and members of an ever-growing community, they realize this technology as an essential tool for expanding access to opportunity, generating revenue, and making transparency and accountability staples in all transactions and projects.
Founded in 2021 by Danny Yang, Amanda Terry and Bill Tai, Metagood is a marketplace for NFTs for social good. The initiative brings together creators, causes and their communities. Metagood’s mission is to empower communities to be catalysts for positive collective action, as the team recognizes the need for fundamental change in incentive structures and believes in the power of Web3 to help create this change for the benefit of current and future generations.
Metagood’s genesis collection was OnChainMonkey.com — the first 10K profile picture collection which was all on-chain in a single transaction. It will launch a series of collections that all have a charitable component.
MetaMetre is a virtual worldwide NFTs Mall for physical and virtual goods in the Metaverse. The MetaMetre — is a virtual skyscraper mall that will gradually build several thousand floors, the number of which is unlimited. It creates retail spaces for different countries and cities and users will be able to go shopping on their phones or PC, by using augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies.
In this meta mall, you can twist the goods in your hands, try on clothes and shoes, make payments, and so on, as in ordinary shopping centres.
NFTs open up opportunities for new business models that didn’t exist before and are much more than a fad of art.
Founded in 2021, MetaMetre is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
4. Savage Kingdom NFTs
Savage Kingdom NFTs are a collection of 3,333 unique hand-drawn, beast-like NFTs known as savages. Each citizen has a unique persona, set of strengths and character traits that make them resilient against all odds.
Founded in 2021 by Jeremy Butler, Savage Kingdom NFTs is a Dallas, Texas-based initiative.
Opportunities is the first NFT collection produced by BiP Lab, which seeks to provide global reach to Peruvian and Latin American artists while showcasing and working on solutions to the issues and challenges they face throughout their careers.
This first collection consists of 6,000 unique and programmatically generated “Waris”. The creative mind behind this first collection is the renowned Peruvian artist Fiasco who through his personal story has given life to its character “Wari”.
As part of this project, Lima-based Opportunities will be working on social initiatives with partners to provide scholarships in the art and tech space, developing its own courses/workshops to incentivize more Latin American developers to explore the blockchain and crypto world while building its own NFT Launchpad for any artist to use.
6. NFTs 4 Charity
One initiative with its heart in the right place is NFTs 4 Charity, which is dedicated to making the NFT donor process accessible and simple for you and your donors.
Founded by Gerry Barker and Lisa Fosdick, NFTs 4 Charity’s strategy is for the partner to choose the artist and the subject, the artist is then commissioned to provide the piece, and the piece is minted and offered for sale. This, then, creates buzz to drive donors to the NFT. The NFT is subsequently sold and funds are raised.
