Wilder World is happy to announce that Metapurse, financed by crypto whale and entrepreneur Metakovan, has entered the Wilder Metaverse as an investor and collector. Metapurse is today’s largest and most influential NFT fund and digital art production studio.
People in crypto and the art world may know Metakovan as the owner of Beeple’s EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS NFT, which was recently auctioned at Christie’s for $69.3 million worth of Ethereum. The pivotal sale put NFT art into the mainstream consciousness and fueled a surge in interest globally. It was the 3rd highest price ever paid for an artwork by a living artist.
Leading up to Christie’s auction for the “Everydays 5000,” the Singapore-based founder had already seen success in a tokenized NFT project called B.20, which was rolled out by Metapurse on January 13, 2021 to offer fractionalized shares of other Beeple NFTs, such as the BEEPLE EVERYDAYS: THE 2020 COLLECTION. At the time when the Christie’s Beeple auction occurred, Metakovan considered Beeple’s work to be “the most valuable piece of art for this generation.”
Co-Founder of Wilder World, Frank Wilder, thought that Metakovan’s purchase was a sign of the times, “The Beeple piece defined a monumental shift in the art world. Metakovan’s investment solidified the market’s readiness for globalized, tradeable digital art.”
By backing Wilder World’s decentralized artist DAO and liquid NFT marketplace, Metapurse recognizes the significance of present and future trends in crypto art. With big tech set to launch massive upgrades in Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies in 2021, they can see the potential impact of immersive, 3D NFTs. Wilder World AR- and VR-ready NFTs can be fractionalized, liquified, and traded by essentially anyone with an Internet device.
The Wilders welcome Metapurse to the Wilder family as an investor and also Metakovan as an in-game character to be created in Wilder World 3D!
“As a deep believer in virtual real estate and NFT art, I can appreciate Wilder World’s core belief that AR and VR combined with NFTs represent the driving catalyst in our journey to the Metaverse. We are very excited about the Wilder World vision, bolstered as it is with some solid tokenomics.”
– Twobadour, the Steward of Metapurse
