Empowering Creators: Afterparty Unleashes NFTs and Social Tokens Launch Platform

Afterparty has launched an NFT platform for creators to engage with their audiences and earn more money. It is part of a strategy to foster a creative economy, in which more individuals may make a career by entertaining others on social networking sites through events like live game streaming.

The Los Angeles-based firm is developing a decentralized platform that will offer creators the tools they need to monetize and administer their fan interactions, create virtual live experiences, and sell digital products utilizing Web3 technology. On the platform, creators may mint and launch their NFTs in minutes. They can give tokens to followers so that they can join token-locked virtual events like VIP parties.

Unlike Web 2.0 platforms such as Instagram, the majority of income generated by the decentralized web belongs to creators, according to the business. NFTs may uniquely identify digital goods, allowing artists to create one-of-a-kind treasures to auction off to the most ardent fans or just offer as a thank-you for their continued support. Creators may also create live and personal events for their most devoted followers using the Afterparty platform.

CEO David Fields stated in an interview, “I have devoted my whole career focusing on the intersection between creators, technology, and the entertainment world”.

“I just became intrigued with the Ethereum white paper. I first came across it in 2015 or 2016 and thought it was an interesting new platform. We examined the ecosystem and determined that the time for this convergence of crypto and artists with Web3 was ideal. We needed to do a better job of monetizing our creators. It is not only about the top 0.001% of the population.”

Afterparty started beta testing in June and will launch its own Ethereum-based NFT marketplace in the fall. As per the firm, producers may pick from a variety of professionally produced NFT frameworks to make it simple to create polished, aesthetically attractive, one-of-a-kind NFTs that are true to their corporate identity. These NFTs integrate perfectly with the events platform, allowing artists to give collectors special experiences and goods.

NFTs have surged in popularity in various fields like art, sports collectibles, and music in the last six months. A good example is NBA Top Shot. It was published by Animoca Brands and created by Dapper Labs, and it sold $700 Million in five months after it was made available to the public. At Christie’s, an NFT digital collage by artist Beeple sold for $69.3 million. Investors back NFTs, and some of those investors are gamers. Weekly profits for NFTs peaked in May and subsequently plummeted, but they are presently greater than they have ever been.

Fields explained, “There is a generation of gamers that grew up purchasing skins and avatars, and they spend their money on things that bring value to them in the digital realm”.

Fields stated that the firm aims to decentralize its activities over time and become majority-owned by the creators and fans. “I believe that is a fascinating experiment. And with NFTs, we are still in the experimentation phase,” Fields explained.

“We are well ahead of the curve; it is still in its infancy. And we believe that NFTs will be a game-changing mechanism for artists to engage more closely with their audience while also allowing them to make a livelihood as a creative in this burgeoning creator economy.”

The platform makes use of Layer 1 infrastructure (or solutions inherent in a blockchain's fundamental protocol), which is built on the blockchain's transparent and secure digital ledger. The platform allows creators to pick their core NFT or social tokens from Ethereum, Bit Clout, and other developing Layer 1s, allowing them to take advantage of a more decentralized creative economy with direct artist-to-fan interaction. The firm to eliminate gas expenses, as well as computer and electricity expenditures, are using the Polygon sidechain.

Nobody has addressed what to do with NFTs once they have been traded for the first time, according to Fields. Afterparty is developing technologies to help creators have a continuous discussion with their followers and develop deeper bonds over time. It also wants followers to share in a creator's long-term success.

“We are curious about the experience that follows the NFT. Moreover, although early NFTs focused on digital art and collectibles, “digital trading cards and new business models are on the way,” he added. “This is the first major creation tool we are releasing. Creators are beginning to experiment with social tokens, but they are unsure of how they can offer value.”
