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, Proton Keepers!
Meet The Creators – Proton Keepers
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background before getting into NFTs.
Alpha One popularly referred to as Commander. After serving his country, he worked in a state-owned television station. Following this, he worked in several media and marketing outfits, where he produced and co-produced several television commercials, documentaries, and game shows. Towards the later portion of his career, he was hired specifically for his experience in TV games and was tasked with the responsibility for creating a TV game show from scratch. He did, and this was the beginning of the name Alpha One.
How were you introduced to NFTs?
I heard about NFT for the first time from Gary Vaynerchuk.
Why did you choose the Proton blockchain to host your collection?
I tried to start my first wallet but I noticed that it would cost me so much, at a time I had limited funds to spare, based on some family health reasons. However, gut feeling informed me there must be a way to sell NFTs without spending so much on gas fees. Proton gave me that opportunity and the proton community also offered me numbing effect towards eliminating the consciousness of my better half’s medical challenges. In addition to that Proton NFT also gave me the opportunity to relocate my studio to my home, which made it possible for me to take care of my sick wife. Point of Note she is much better now.
Tell us about your collection and the inspiration.
I have always loved to be in the military and was able to serve my country for just one year. Although not battle tested, I served in a state TV and radio station as a broadcaster and producer. After which I then worked in the private sector. The truth is my art is the inspiration. Inspiration to look beyond the ordinary. The inspiration to challenge the ordinary and dream of the possibility of elite soldiers who might never exist but the idea helps me fulfil my all-time desire to build a 3D Game. This way I can put my inspiration into my reality, which is “The battle of the HOVID” Keepers battle based 3D Game still in development.
