    Forgotten Runes - Creating a Decentralized Entertainment Franchise in Web3

    Forgotten Runes - Creating a Decentralized Entertainment Franchise in Web3

    It is only in recent years that the modern entertainment landscape has discovered the characters we create in sci-fi, fantasy, and other fantastic worlds can only be fully explored not through just literature, but also through other mediums as well. It makes sense then that this would expand into web3 and we would leverage blockchain technology and the benefits it provides to facilitate the exploration of strange worlds. Today, we have with us the co-creator and artist for one such new strange world, Forgotten Runes. Welcome to the show ElfJTrul.

    FULL SHOW NOTES: http://nifty.show/183

    00:00 - Intro

    01:00 - It is complicated to describe everything we are doing at Forgotten Runes, but it is a project about world building. The concept of world building has been going on for a very long time, but what we are doing that is new is that we’ve decentralized the whole process of world building with tens of thousands of characters, owned by our community as NFTs. 

    02:06 - Physical comic books, NFT characters, dice, games… what aren’t you doing here? 

    03:40 - Many projects declare they have a collaborative narrative construction, but it really comes down to a poll. How is your community different? 

    05:15 - The trailer on our website features many scenes inspired by things our community has created around their characters. We are providing a bridge to a larger Hollywood ecosystem for our community. 

    06:05 - The direct impact stems from contributions made to the Book of Lore. How do you manage unsavory stories submitted to the Book of Lore and franchise canon? 

    06:50 - Magic Machine has created a baseline canon narrative with political factions, a world map, and more. Preventing discontinuity between the stories isn’t a huge factor because of the magical nature of the world, the ability for time travel, and more. Every media franchise has discontinuity, even Batman, for example. 

    09:20 - The timeless archetypes within the franchise enable and create continuity even accidentally. There’s an eerie synchronicity between the stories because they’re based on ancient archetypes. 

    11:09 - You have games coming, too. A battle game, land sales, and more. What are some of the features planned for the game? 

    12:10 - What are the next few major milestones in the story with the franchise releases coming? 

    14:00 - We are developing a show with an impressive writer named Derrick Colstad, the creator of the John Wyck franchise. He also wrote this awesome film on Netflix called “Nobody”. 

    14:33 - What is this secret tower? It can’t be that secret because there’s a link on the homepage about it. 

    15:55 - Outside of the synchronicity and the individual stories, is there a single overarching narrative that defines the entire property? 

    17:00 - One of the biggest themes of the whole project is exploring the connection between the Runeverse to the Real World. It is a commentary on how meat space interacts with metaspace. It is about how we as humans identify as our avatars in the digital space. What does it literally mean, what does it mean as our real physical reality is intersecting with our digital reality and digital reality becomes more and more real in comparison to our physical reality. 

    19:03 - How can people learn more and get engaged, gain access to The Book of Lore themselves? 

    19:41 - A great resource is our weekly podcast called Wizard Wednesday at 2 PM Pacific Time; it is on our Twitter @forgottenrunes and our YouTube channel features previous episodes.

    Bit Hotel - Social Metaverse Blockchain Game

    Bit Hotel - Social Metaverse Blockchain Game

    The metaverse promises social connection on steroids; very effective when we are all locked in on quarantine, which hopefully never happens again. There are some projects seeking to really be on the frontlines of web3 social. One such project I discovered last week is Bit Hotel. Kareem de Vries, Head of Partnerships, is here today to talk about Bit Hotel as a new social metaverse gaming environment powered by NFTs.

    Full Show Notes: Nifty.Show/182

    Time stamps:

    00:00 - Intro 01:32 - What is the purpose or mission of having a space like BitHotel? 02:40 - There are a lot of social spaces online that include customized 2D or 3D representations of an individual, but you integrated Bit Hotel with blockchain. How does that fit into the vision and the purpose of the BitHotel platform? 03:35 - I’m looking at the trailer at the website, Bithotel.io, it has this very retro pixel flavor to it and the isometric view to it. Not everything has to be cutting edge, state of the art graphics. 04:17 - The inspiration behind BitHotel includes the flash player games from the early days of the Internet, like the Sims, Runescape, Minecraft and more. These games were not only extremely fun to play, but also because of the social aspect, which we are enhancing via blockchain technology and digital asset ownership. 05:33 - Check out the hotel! It is currently 54 floors, which are available for purchase via NFT. 06:52 - Is there a finite supply of these plots? Eventually, you sell out of these things and there is no more. Would you expand the hotel to accommodate the interested buyers? 09:10 - Why are there different rarities for characters and how does that apply to the metaverse? 10:20 - How do players engage with the play-to-earn system you’ve built into the hotel? 12:05 - It looks like the $BTH is your token on the Binance Smart Chain. One BUSD equals 164 $BTH, so if you want to get an idea of what it takes to mint a character, the least expensive character … a few dollars? 13:25 - The game is in beta; how do you get in to play the beta game? 14:00 - Is this an ongoing launch? 15:45 - Joel is registering an account; what happens when you refer your friends with the referral code at sign-up? 16:21 - The other things that are tokenized aside from the floors and the characters; what other objects are tokenized in the game? 16:55 - Joel is touring the hotel and accidentally bombs himself. 19:05 - There is no barrier to entry; someone can sign in and play without a wallet connected and no up-front investment. 19:59 - I see a bartender; can I get a drink? 21:13 - What can you tell us about the roadmap? 24:55 - Outro

    Decentralized File Storage with Filecoin

    Decentralized File Storage with Filecoin

    We are going to speak to someone who is an expert in the arena of NFTs. Today's guest has been able to observe the trends of NFTs by seeing the back end of storage. Filecoin is the decentralized storage network designed to store humanity's most important information. Jonathan Victor is the head of NFTs at Filecoin to share the trends, usage, and what the future looks like for NFTs. 

    FULL SHOW NOTES: nifty.show/180

    TIME STAMPS:

    00:00 - Intro

    1:25 - How did you get here and become the head of NFTs at Filecoin? 

    3:05 - Part of the problem is an awareness problem. What are people trying to do with NFTs? 

    3:36 - So you launched your own decentralized NFT storage, based on IPFS and Filecoin. When we talk about putting an image or a movie or a document on IPFS, that makes it so it is decentralized and can’t be taken down by any third party. Is that correct? 

    06:15 So NFT storage then, you have a lot of big players who are using Filecoin. What are the trends you’re seeing in NFTs that are sticking out to you? 

    07:58 - Profile pictures were the big rage and leading the way through the last bull run. Are profile pictures still where it's at? What comes next? 

    11:33 - I’ve logged into NFT storage with my GitHub account. I’m going to grab this Robotos NFT or combined image. This is my IPFS ID. There are people that say once you own an NFT, it is yours and nothing can happen, but if I sold this NFT, I can go in and delete this; what happens to someone who then owns that NFT? 

    13:30 - The Bored Ape Yacht Club is stored somewhere, right? If they go in and delete the IPFS file, does that mean there are broken display links for all the BAYC NFTs? 

    14:33 - In other words, a creator can’t rug a collection if they’re using IPFS and make all the images disappear? 

    17:04 - Let’s talk a little bit about the so-called metaverse. NFTs are playing a role in the metaverse. Is this whole world of these metaverses going to be the dominant way that NFTs are adding value via entertainment in the near future? 

    19:26 - The last bull run of NFTs was huge. Do you feel like we’ve not seen anything yet? 

    20:52 - When we look at the technology adoption curve, we are still in the very early adoption for NFTs. What year do you think we will reach mass adoption?

    The Nifty Show #179 - SuperYeti and Seddona

    The Nifty Show #179 - SuperYeti and Seddona

    In the five years I’ve been watching NFTs, I have seen a lot of projects launch. I’ve seen some that have exploded and some that have been epic fails. What I love to see is a project I get into that has the legs to stick around and truly work out and develop their roadmap. This is the case for SuperYetis. I minted three SuperYetis over a year ago and not only have these guys survived, they are thriving and have airdropped additional NFTs to holders, have land, and more announcements around what they’re doing.

    SuperYeti is the first 10K, 3D NFT. We are the home of the meme-lords & sh*t posters, the artists and builders. We're the original NFT meme project and the only thing we're serious about is building!

    We recently dropped three big announcements, our current and on going Land Quarry sale, Yeti Bomber (video game) and Seddona, a marketplace for games like Steam but for web3.

Valefebvre ,

Grenat content & great hosts - very insightful

I’ve listened to over 50 episodes and I’m very pleased by the content and the hosts.
Both Joel & Travis are on top of their game and invite some broad range of people in the NFT space. It’s very rich in terms of guests and it keeps it fresh and up to the news.
I’ve learned a lot from listening to the show and for sure am eager to investigate and search more on the things I discover there. It’s a great way to have your finger in the pulse of the market as well as a point of view from the hosts that know a lot from their experience in the space.
All along and all together, it’s a great show.
I warmly recommend listening to their episodes and interviews. It’s the leading couple on the air for the virtual goods industry.
Merci
Best regards from Paris
