Digital Collectibles, DCs, NFTs …they’re all names of a surprisingly broad and rapidly growing product group with the potential to become massive worldwide in the coming years. So why have most people never heard of them?
From Stamp-Collecting to Digital Collectibles: Terra Virtua opens up Virtual Treasures to the Mainstream.
Collecting has evolved enormously over the years. What began as a niche hobby for fans of stamps and coins back in the War Years of the 20th century became much more mainstream towards the end of the millennium as new, limited-edition genres began attracting collectors from all ages and genders.
When Terra Virtua was first conceived by Jawad Ashraf and I in a coffee shop in London on September 9th 2017, little did we know what challenges lay ahead. The promise of new technologies such as blockchain and VR allowed us to brainstorm and outline the creation of a new social entertainment platform unlike anything that had been seen before.
