As NFTs and non-fungible tokens take over the art world, Meta Pirates intends to create a crew passionate about piracy to conquer, together, the new lands of the metaverse via the NFTs. Interview with the founders of the platform who present during this interview, the many advantages of this singular project.
Can you tell us about the M projecteta Pirates which revolves around NFTs?
Originally, we wanted to launch an NFT project through a category that people might like and that had not been exploited until then. This is how we had the idea of developing this project around the world of pirates: a theme made very popular with the general public thanks to popular successes such as the film Pirates of the Caribbean or the One Piece manga, and which brings together many themes such as the sea, boats, wars, or treasures.
Through its spirit of conquest and camaraderie, the universe of pirates fits in every way with the one we want to develop around NFTs, namely to create a community of pirates setting out to tackle the metaverse.
Meta Pirates has developed a roadmap offering many advantages around the theme of pirates in NFTs. What is it exactly?
The universe of pirates allows us to propose a roadmap for holders (buyers) which lists all the advantages to which they are entitled thanks to this project. After being selected to participate in the project, our holders will be able to buy their NFTs. This gives them advantages that we will present as the roadmap progresses through eight successive phases.
After being welcomed on board and officially joining the Meta Pirates crew, holders will be able to access unique merchandising with crew privileges such as a clothing collection that is entirely intended for them. This allows them to identify more easily with each other and reinforces the feeling of belonging to the group. All members will be put in contact through a private club in order to be able to create a business network allowing them to exchange in the world of cryptocurrencies and that of NFTs.
What are the other benefits of this roadmap?
To stand out from other NFT projects, we wanted to develop other advantages: each holder will be able to win between two and four unique chests per month in which money, free merchandising, boosts, or new NFT. We are also the first project to offer such gifts!
Among the other phases, we are setting up humanitarian actions called “Coeur de pirate: l’âme de l’océan” which allow you to choose an association in order to make a donation granted by the entire crew.
Note: we are also going to set up an online game where the 8,888 people will be able to compete, and where the best of them will be able to access various rewards.
Finally, our last phase of the project allows you to conquer the metaverse via a boat, itself purchased in the metaverse. People will be able to meet there, discuss together on different themes, and find a real use for their meta pirates through their avatar.
So the goal is to develop a real community around NFTs and the metaverse?
Indeed, we are looking for people who share this desire to belong to a group and to a close-knit community, with members from different professional backgrounds.
We want to connect all of these people to create an ecosystem with exclusive benefits, and this in the long term! We also want to organize physical events, for example in Dubai or Los Angeles, so that the crew members can meet, discuss, or even do business together!
This universe of pirates makes it possible to found a unique community, gathered around strong values such as loyalty or determination.
What will be the next steps for Meta Pirates?
While waiting for the official launch of the project, we are actively working on its development. For this, we have a budget of more than one million euros for marketing, which is very rare in the field of NFTs. This must allow us to show all our determination around this unique project!
While in March 2021, the famous auction house Christies managed to sell virtually a photographic montage of the American artist Beeple “ Everyday: the First 5000 days at more than 69 million dollars — placing him in the category of the most expensive artists of their lifetime alongside Jeff Koons and David Hockney — the NFTs are currently shaking up the art market and heralding a real revolution. With the rise of these technologies and the arrival of metaverses, Meta Pirates wishes, as of today, to participate fully in this upheaval by proposing a fund project around the popular world of piracy, with a community of enthusiasts.
