Firstly, we want to say a big shout out to everyone who signed up and verified their account – thanks for bearing with us on this process. Hopefully now you’re all set up and have received your first Collectible reward! No surprise here, the giant robot won the battle for votes…. Jaeger 1. Kaiju 0.
We also have a growing Discord community where all our major Prestige updates will be shared, plus a hangout channel where you can all get to know each other better. This month, we held our inaugural Member-only Town Hall with founders Gary Bracey and Jawad Ashraf, speaking direct to the community on the latest in Terra Virtua’s development roadmap, partnerships and a chance to ask questions directly to the team. For those of you who missed it, we’ve included a few snippets of the session below. The next town hall will be announced on Discord.
Prestige Town Hall October - Q&A Highlights
When are you announcing new licences and IPS coming to Terra Virtua?
GARY: We’ve always made it a policy that we don’t pre-announce anything. It sets expectations in the community and lots of speculation. For instance if we say we’re about to announce a large movie licence, everyone is going to expect that it’s something like Star Wars, and if it’s not will be disappointed. We want to avoid that. The silence doesn’t mean we don’t have anything, quite the contrary, but we don’t want to announce anything until we and our partners are ready. For instance, if we announce something today and we weren’t dropping it for 6 months, it gets stale very quickly. When the drops happen, people will think it’s old as they heard about it 6 months ago. Holding the news ensures its kept fresh.
We do have a number of signed entertainment licences that we’re very excited about. This is across a range of sectors from Sports, TV, Movies, comic books, games and of course music. All we ask is that you stay patient with us. We know you’re dying to know. We’re dying to announce them! But the time has got to be right.
What plans do you have to expand Prestige in the future?
JAWAD: The idea behind Prestige was to reward TVK holders with different benefits – including NFT rewards and Prestige Points. The Prestige Point itself is a token (ERC token) and that means we get a tonne of utility in the future. For example as it’s a token, it means we can work with other crypto companies for other benefits – we are having active conversations with companies right now.
In the future, the Prestige Membership will mean access to special events, drops and early access to new assets – for example VIP gallery screenings similar to a cocktail event before the general public see a collection.
We have also been contacted by people who hold 100s of NFTS and we want to reward them too. I envision a Prestige membership in the future where you can stake your NFT collection for rewards.
What’s next for VFLECT?
GARY: VFLECT are one of our big differentiators and we want to make sure we can scale this up. We’ve got a whole family of VFLECTs coming out that are licenced. Our first example of this was the Vampirella VFLECTs with Dynamite Entertainment but we’ve got a whole lot more in the pipeline.We’ve seen some sneak previews and some amazing 3D models from things like The BOYS and we’ll still be launching characters from these comics in the coming months. There are so many exciting products in the pipeline.
There are so many products in line. How many developers does Terra Virtua have and are you thinking about open source libraries, tools or products (i.e. Opensea)?
JAWAD: In house we have about 50 developers which cover multiple areas such as front end, blockchain, UX, UI, etc. On the second part, ultimately the blockchain technology is open sourced and all public. In terms of the new Terra Virtua platform, it’s going to be proprietary and allow us to spin out white labelled versions. Rather than people building things themselves, we’ll be able to provide this as a service. It’s not just about having somewhere to sell, it’s about having a curated experience for people to really engage with the brand. That’s missing right now and a lot of companies are struggling with this. We’re looking forward to launching this next year.
