COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 7, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Blockchain Life has partnered with the artist known as "the metagration" to create a unique NFT collection—The Great Metagration—which reimagines a new future of opportunities. The official drop takes place on March 14, at 1 PM ET on OpenSea, the world's largest NFT marketplace.
"The metaverse is red hot," says Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kary Oberbrunner. "Look no further than The United States Patent and Trademark Office. The past 90 days, many brands officially entered the metaverse, a new immersive reality."
Businesses (like Disney) appointed chief metaverse officers. Celebrities (like Snoop Dogg) bought virtual properties. Designers like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Nike created digital lines of clothing and shoes. And artists like Marshmello, Travis Scott, and Ariana Grande hosted virtual concerts for millions of fans in recent times.
What's the context for the new NFT project?
However, there's another side too. Web3 should scare the hell out of humans—and—borrowing a line from Star Trek, "resistance is futile." Headlines swirling around the metaverse reveal a disturbing, darker picture of humanity.
From virtual Nazi concentration camp digital reenactments, to strip clubs where kids' avatars are invited to get naked to do "unspeakable" things, this new digital world is in desperate need of saving, even before it officially begins.
What's the NFT Collection?
The new NFT collection—The Great Metagration—offers a moment in time when people can create an ideal third reality, the culmination of digital and physical worlds. By wrapping these NFTs with strategic domain names, stakeholders will decide which worlds to unlock within the metaverse and which ones to shut forever. And according to Oberbrunner, "The elements they choose to include could decide our future as a species."
This NFT collection is engaging thousands of the world's biggest businesses, brands, and celebrities, in an effort to imagine how humans and machines might live peacefully and wholly in our inevitable metaverse reality.
How did the NFT project come about?
The metagration's initial minting— 60 digital assets and domain names—started appearing on OpenSea the morning of February 25, 2022. Thousands of unique NFTs will be available at the official launch on March 14, at 1 PM ET. Insider updates can be obtained at the NFT project website: TheGreatMetagration.io
Although none of the NFTs are presently for sale, this collection of who's who includes celebrities from many industries such as film, art, sports, music, entrepreneurship, and fashion.
"The metagration has already secured nearly 10,000 more of the hottest domain names associated with leading businesses, brands, and influencers, collectively representing billions of followers and trillions of dollars," said Oberbrunner, a spokesperson for the metagration.
Evidently, the metagration noticed an emerging trend with new tech. In recent years, he saw more and more brands and businesses using .io extensions for websites. Examples include etherscan.io, metamask.io, and autograph.io Even the latest Matrix movie references .io, a new underground human city.
His timing was spot on because December 2021 through February 2022, proved to be a popular time for corporations to onboard into the metaverse.
Why is the NFT project important?
Oberbrunner said, "The metagration has several essential forthcoming twists that demonstrate the true utility of the NFT collection and how together humans could create a safer Web3 world."
When he asked how, the NFT artist gave Oberbrunner an example. Evidently disgusted by the headlines of the recent sexual assault of a mother in the metaverse, the metagration purchased several domain names with the purpose of minting them as NFTs and forever retiring them, symbolically abolishing what they represent.
MetaverseRape.io, MetaverseRape.com, and MetaverseRape.xyz will never be used for evil in the new world. Instead, these NFTs and domain names will be leveraged to provide financial, emotional, and spiritual support for victims of rape in the real world and the digital world.
the metagration is not naïve. He knows owning a domain name and NFT will not eliminate evil. However, through the deeper message and movement intrinsic to his new NFT art collection, he aims to bring hope and healing to the new Web3 world.
