Metaiye Knights

“Metaiye Knights is a graphic novel and gaming saga on the rise of a decentralized freedom movement across digital and physical realms. Think the Matrix, meets Tron meets Mr Robot in comic, gaming and film formats for the mixed reality, crypto generation…

…Metaiye Knights teaches users how and why to utilize blockchain in a compelling manner, in a saga based on the evolution of the decentralized web. Starting as a graphic novel, our story evolves into an open gaming platform that will ultimately culminate as a TV or film series — it tells the story of the rise of a decentralized society and is published using decentralized money and collectibles. Users will be able to create assets that persist like personal avatars and digital collectibles, which they will be able to keep and use in other environments regardless of what happens with the platform, which will make them more valuable and collectible with time. It will use VR and AR to create new reading and gaming experiences and use blockchain to pioneer new distribution, payment and rewards models.”

So, this is a project like Kickstarter, but instead of getting a product, you are buying shares of the creative product produced. I’ve never seen anything like this before. My guess is that it is a bad investment, but if it helps get something made that you’d like to see, such as a comic book and gaming platform that helps promote blockchain technologies, perhaps it is worth it to people with a lot of discretionary income?

Lore Olympus

“In this Webtoon, the story of Persephone and Hades is retold from a new perspective… modern day. This dramatic, somewhat addictive story involves two Greek gods, who meet by chance, and suddenly start questioning their feelings for each other. On top of that, this story features relationship struggles, looking for love, going to school for the first time, abusive situations, futures not chosen by the person it’s for, parties, and MUCH, MUCH more. I really think you will love this webtoon! For all those fans of the Kane Chronicles and the Percy Jackson and Hero of Olympus series. Or, basically anyone who has ever found any form of enjoyment out of fictional shipping and romantic fandoms will find a home in this story.”
