We’re back with another project in this month’s Proton May #BetterNFTs campaign. As a reminder, our goal is to introduce the incredibly talented creators behind the projects you know and love to help you learn more about the Proton ecosystem.
As part of the campaign, we publish a ‘Meet The Creators’ interview everyday, alongside an NFT giveaway from that creator, so you can learn more about their project, the inspiration behind each series, what’s next for them, and why they chose Proton.
Don’t forget: Proton allows users to mint NFTs instantly and without paying gas fees. Intelligent smart contracts ensure that creators earn royalties on future sales of their NFTs, allowing a pathway for artists to continue to earn income from their creations. And because Proton Market has an open-source template, talented creators can customize their own storefront to create a truly unique experience for their communities.
Please meet the team from another community favorite project, GLBDEX!
Meet The Creators – GLBDEX
Tell us a little bit about yourself, and your background before getting into NFTs.
Hi everyone, Paul from Proton NZ here! I think most people may know me from my memes and GIFs but behind the scenes I’m also creating many of the Proton/Metal NFT’s for the marketing campaigns as well as running GLBDEX, the 3D Asset Marketplace for the Metaverse.
How were you introduced to NFT’s?
I was first introduced to NFT’s back in 2018 when I came across a project I loved called pepedapp. I was in it for the memes and collected a bunch including a rare 1 of 21 Satoshi Nakamoto. There’s an interesting story behind this project, they used the ERC420 Dank Standard which was a rare and interesting fungible standard. Using the 21 Edition Satoshi Nakamoto for example, there is no serial number so all 21 Satoshi cards have the exact same value.
Why did you choose Proton Blockchain to host your collection?
Proton is very unique as it’s both user friendly and extremely powerful. The WebAuth.com onboarding experience is super smooth and easy, even my Mum can do it.
There are no gas fees, you get a human readable username for a wallet, KYC available on chain to verify artists, multi currency support with xtokens, fiat on ramp… the list goes on!
Atomic Assets, the NFT standard we use on Proton, is also great because anyone can create their own website or marketplace and connect to the same contract on chain and access all the same assets and trade them seamlessly, decentralization in action!
Tell us about your collection and the inspiration.
As many of you know Proton NZ is working very hard on our metaverse expansion project, with Stage One being the Orbital Platform on GLBDEX. It’s an incredible demo showcasing where we are headed with WebXR on Proton and I can’t wait for you to see what else is on the horizon.
View the GLBDEX XR Orbital Platform on Desktop or in Virtual Reality here!
As part of NFT May I’m giving away the GLBDEX Drop Ship. This special mint celebrates Stage One of our project and with four primary thrusters the Drop Ship ensures your metaverse assets are always delivered on time!
What benefits do your NFT holders have? (Passive Income, DAO, Airdrops)
Anyone purchasing an NFT from GLBDEX receives a Metaverse ready .GLB file that they can download and import into games and other worlds around the metaverse!
What’s next for your project?
We are working on more interactivity, custom spaces and also have a game planned so early holders of our Official GLBDEX NFTs can expect a little something extra when the time is right. Follow GLBDEX on Twitter to get the latest updates!
If you want to give a shoutout, now is your chance!
I want to give a huge shout out to everyone minting and collecting assets on GLBDEX, especially Metatron and AirmanNFTs, your support means a lot. Also a huge thank you to everyone voting for Proton NZ!
