Hello StarryNift, and welcome under the spotlight. As this is your first time here, let’s kick it off with an introduction to your project.
Honored as the #MVBIII Monthly Star and one of the competitors for the MVBIII Top 10, StarryNift is the first gamified massive creation platform and launchpad for fun digital collectibles integrated with metaverse in the confluence of multiple worldviews.
We aim to build a Play-to-Earn metaverse that allows the players to fully enjoy the fun of NFT collecting, creating, mining, trading, gaming, socializing, and more.
The mission of StarryNift is to empower art by technology and democratize value appreciation as DAO. The vision is to enable the whole ecosystem to share the prosperity of the creator and token economy and unlock new ways to explore the metaverse with gaming, art, DeFi, and NFTs.
How did you come up with the name StarryNift? Is there a hidden meaning behind it?
This idea was born around last year, which was the booming year for NFT. The market went crazy about the Beeple’s auction. At this time, Vincent van Gogh’s masterpiece, The Starry Night, came to our mind. Van Gogh is full of endless creativity, passion, and sorrow.
And we thought that if we want to start an NFT project, we must create NFTs in the scenario that truly supports people with creativity and passion.
Thus, we decided to establish an NFT Play-to-Earn fairyland for all the people. We want all users to have the chance to experience the metaverse gaming, and an ideal metaverse is not only the one that allows Play to Earn but also Create to Earn, Collect to Earn, or Govern to Earn models.
Now that we know a bit about your project and its idea, let’s meet the team. Can you highlight your team’s expertise and experience?
StarryNift is a global team based in Singapore, the United States, Korea, and Israel. The founding team consists of blockchain veterans, hardcore gamers, and geeks with paramount leadership from elite finance and technology institutions, including Google, Alibaba, and JP Morgan.
Before StarryNift, CEO Martha Zhang was one of the founding partners at Bitmain and led venture investments at Temasek. Professor Jan Liphardt, from Stanford University, focusing on dApp, Layer2, and NFT 1155, contributes to the project as well. Jihan Wu, the founder of Bitmain and Matrixport, and Pranav as the funding partner of Woodstock fund are individual investors and consultants.
Why should anyone use StarryNift? What’s exceptional about it?
There are a few parts to it, so let me list them out.
- Original IP
We have the original NFT character Code Green created by our chief artist, 5ive, with strong recognition and exciting background. Code Green, the original NFT, is a series of cyberspace viruses that accidentally found the blockchain database when roaming in the metaverse and plotted to reign on the throne of Blockchain Universe. Using the advantages of “evolving” and “mutating” genes, Code Greens quickly discovered all the blockchain civilizations, ultimately leading to chaos. However, there is still a gleam of hope—a traceability program. Once the blockchain world employs ERC-1155 technology to trace the origin causing the mayhem, it will capture the key to restoring once glorified civilization.
- Diverse Scenarios
StarryNift is the first to initiate a unique INO with comprehensive benefits, providing users with diverse digital assets like planets, virtual land, character cards, in-game equipment, and more.
StarryNift will also provide NFT breeding incubation, upgrade base, pet center, treasure hunt jungle, virtual performances, and other creative scenarios to enhance the metaverse game experience.
- Reliable Tech
StarryNift has deployed multiple public chains to build different products for different ecologies and provided cross-chain bridges for users to apply. By adopting the ERC-1155 protocol, StarryNift can obtain the latest data efficiently and quickly associate with other data to achieve aggregation. Through the cooperation with BOBA to explore the NFT transfer between Layer 1 and Layer 2, we can significantly reduce gas costs. It’s worth noting that StarryNift’s cross-chain technology is one of the few in the market that can support ERC-1155.
- Healthy Ecology
StarryNift strives to build a multi-dimensional space including creation, interaction, gaming, entertainment, trading, and more to keep the users engaged in the experience. By entitling the NFT with longer-term value and gradually releasing the Play to Earn scenario of the NFTs, users are prevented from quickly selling NFTs in the secondary market. StarryNift will create diverse scenarios such as an online performance of NFT virtual idols, hunting for NFT treasure in the virtual museum, upgrading the NFT cards in the battles, forming a guild to win in the game, gaining economic share through NFT airdrops, etc.
StarryNift also includes a dynamic burn model to support tokenomics.
How can GameFi players start with StarryNift?
On November 11, we finished our IGO that enabled users to purchase our tokens. In this IGO launch, StarryNift initiated a 25 BUSD fixed-price sale for its Binance-Exclusive Genesis Equipment Pack Mystery Box; and released three unique Collector’s Edition Super Warrior Code Green NFTs for the first time, with the auction price starting at 3,000 BUSD each.
This equipment can provide Code Green NFTs with better attributes, resulting in more attractive rewards and income from the game.
We will open a marketplace on our website to trade Code Green NFTs in the future. Then the GameFi users can join our Play to Earn metaverse game. We have already launched metaverse game 1.0, containing planet land occupation, NFT battles, mining, and other functions.
In this version 1.0, Code Green NFTs will first experience being reborn to gain new attributes and weight according to their original rarity. Code Green holders can then stake Code Greens to occupy land, harvest equipment NFTs, or earn trophy rewards generated by the land.
We will also initiate the Daily Sign-in Reward Event by signing via app.starrynift.art. Players who sign in get a chance to win surprise Code Green NFTs, equipment NFTs, and other rewards.
