The NFTs were designed specifically for the company’s metaverse projects and represent the values and ethics of Animoca Brands and its subsidiaries.
According to the company, Mocaverse is designed to reinforce Animoca Brands‘ ecosystem of web3 and metaverse projects. According to the announcement, the five tribes are inspired by “the values and ethics shared by Animoca Brands and its portfolio companies and partners.”
Each tribe represents the diverse and complementary characteristics of web3 change agents. The collection is based on four fundamental pillars: learn, play, build and do good. The pillars represent different types of utility, known as kingdoms.
Animoca Brands was one of the web3 companies leading the campaign for the open metaverse and intellectual property rights. In its latest release, the company claims to have invested in more than 380 projects.
