CARDIFF, Wales, June 6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Blockchain Games Platform Vulcan Forged has obtained the intellectual property (IP) rights of the works included in the Frank Frazetta Art collection. The team plans to use these rights to create and distribute fantasy-themed non-fungible tokens (NFTs) wielding famous works, in Vulcan’s in-game world, the VulcanVerse.
Fantastic art meets virtual reality
Among the famous works of art, that of Frank Frazetta “Egyptian Queen” – a painting which recently sold for $ 5.4 million – will be symbolized for the first time as an NFT themed “Vulcanite” – a world champion in the game. Some of the original licensed artwork has already sold for millions of dollars worldwide. Specifically, the Vulcan team obtained the rights to the designs of the so-called “Godfather of Fantastic Art”, Frank frazetta. Frazetta is a world renowned fantasy and science fiction artist most famous for his Conan the Barbarian illustrations. He has become an icon and a source of inspiration for the current generation of fantastic artists.
How will Vulcan Forged use IPs?
The Vulcan team has confirmed that many of the NFTs that will launch in VulcanVerse will first be created on the platform’s native blockchain as Vulcanites. In addition to digital ownership of the actual artwork, Vulcan Forged users will be able to redeem the tokens as champions in VulcanVerse, the flagship MMORPG, and other games in the ecosystem.
The current IP licenses will also allow VulcanVerse to use characters from the five upcoming playbooks, thus contributing substantially to the deep tradition that permeates the entire ecosystem.
Vulcan Forged forges the future
VulcanIts gaming ecosystem is making headlines due to its rapid pace of development and its ever-growing community of gamers. Incarnate – a 3D board game with 8,000 champions – is one of the many upcoming games to join the Vulcan Forged ecosystem. It will also offer marketing, technical support and $ 40,000 in development grants for blockchain games and dApps on the Vulcan platform.
Additionally, more recently a fantastic collectible card game called Berserk launched in VulcanVerse. Players can simulate battles based on the “creatures” associated with each Berserk playing card, as well as trade playing cards in the Vulcan ecosystem. The launch is expected to include a tournament with $ 100,000 in rewards for the winners.
Vulcan users will soon be able to claim part of the previously announced $ 20 million prize pool by playing games in the ecosystem or staking the platform’s native token, PYR. Indeed, PYR was recently listed on the centralized cryptocurrency exchange KuCoin, its first appearance in the open market. The listing is an effort to support PYR and the broader Vulcan Forged ecosystem, whose market now has more than $ 60 million in volume of trade to date.
Finally, the team introduced a fiat-crypto ramp to expand payment options for new and existing users, and plans to launch an additional 100 games in VulcanVerse by the end of 2021. Most recently, the Vulcan Forged team ad the platform will support the NFTs created on the Polygon network following their last partnership with Network Arkane.
VulcanVerse is a virtual world located in the Greco-Roman era. It is a standalone game that uses blockchain technology to allow users to truly own their land and assets. Its detailed history is written by the authors of Fighting Fantasy, a series of best-selling single-player role-playing books created by Steve jackson and Ian livingstone. In addition, the virtual world has complex game tools and multiplayer game features.
VulcanVerse is blockchain-based, with key elements of the virtual world existing as an NFT on a specially crafted blockchain. Vulcan’s Berserk can be accessed through a downloadable app which recently became available on the Google Play Store.
