BLK LUV and Enjin Partner to Merge NFTs and Augmented Reality
BLK LUV [org] has announced it’s browser game LUV MetaVerse in partnership with Enjin that enables users to build a virtual Wakanda powered by LUV. Our gamers will have the ability to create a a new universe to awaken and elevate a new golbal dynamism. With the power to trade NFT’s, bring their digital avatars to life, wear and interact with the NFT fashion, share videos on social media, inside Minecraft, one of the world’s most popular games.
“Education is key to empowering the next generation of innovators. Enjin is proud to work alongside Microsoft to generate innovative opportunities for merging virtual worlds, bringing digital communities closer together, and celebrating powerful women in science and tech,”
said Bryana Kortendick, VP of Operations & Communications at Enjin.
“Enjin’s platform powers innovative projects across the gaming and wider blockchain ecosystem,”
said Sherry List, Azure developer engagement lead at Microsoft.
BLK LUV will create a line of tradable non-fungible tokens (NFT) to bring much-needed diversity to the gaming industry and onboard the African American community on Ethereum blockchain. These Enjin powered NFTs will be a representation of our culture, that we finally have the ability to capitalize off of with no middleman thanks to blockchain. LUV Metaverse will give small business owners the ability to create a virtual business, network, and even get married on blockchain. That’s because the Ethereum blockchain records the ownership data. Our virtual Wakanda will be the next level of social media allowing users can snap selfies, create customized hyper-realistic avatars and make them interact in a real-world environment. Moreover, these fashion items are probably owned by the users.
“This game is one of our many solutions to eradicate systemic racism by teaching the African American community how to survive in this new digital economy,”
said Hahz Terry Founder of BLK LUV.
“Systemic racism operates like a rigged game of Monopoly. Where the black players are being bet against to lose, specifically black men who are being handed the go straight to jail card as a means of making hedge funds rich. We’re taking a new age approach to addressing the disease of racism because with 5 billion in pledges and commitments made to racial equity organisations we still don’t have a solution.
Our approach was created from knowing the only two human emotions being Love (LUV) and Fear. So in our game the two teams are #TeamLUV and #TeamFear. The game of race that created systemic racism is powered by #TeamFear. We’ve been trying to end systemic race-ism for over 400 years from the angle of race, that only adds fuel to the fire as we seen last year with BLM. Trump ran a #TeamFear campaign and showed the world his achielles heal was us all no longer giving #TeamFear any energy. The world needs to choose a team, that allows us to know who has love for #TeamLuv. The game of LUV is measured by a leaderboard to see who is spreading the most LUV. #TeamLUV sees beyond the illusion of a racial group that applies to no human technically, similar to the label of American Indians. Our community is a #LUVTribe that has the goal of uniting humanity and spreading LUV. Our game and token of $LUV has a higher purpose that is aligned with the 5D universe to raise the consciousness level of the planet to the vibration of LUV where #Team fear can no longer exist. Our platform allows gamers to become their higher self while earning $LUV.
NFTs + Minecraft: How it works
On the first leg of the journey, a user embarks on a quest to spread LUV and recruit new users from a failing economic ecosystem – the text-based part of the quest. Upon obtaining a Ankh shown above and referring 5 players, the user is then forwarded to a web page where they are asked to scan a QR code. The code provides an NFT that drops automatically into a user’s Enjin wallet, from there they can link their wallet to cross-platform gaming network MyMetaVerse.
NFTs acquired by playing the game will allow players to unlock a new “quest” inside the LUV MetaVerse Minecraft server. Users can then spawn Kemet pieces via the EnjinCraft plugin into the popular game.
NFTs are digital assets that represent a wide variety of physical goods as well as intangible assets, in the case of BLK LUV’s initiative, digital badges. Key characteristics of an NFT include the fact they are non-interoperable, indivisible, indestructible, and verifiable. Built on Ethereum’s ERC-721 and ERC-1155 token standards, they contain information that makes them distinct from other NFTs. Because they are easily verifiable, no two are the same and are unable to be traded with each other, differing from typical cryptocurrency standards.
It’s important to gamers because they can access forms of value that unlock perks and benefits across multiple platforms, games, and apps, creating integrated experiences that can potentially travel with them across the internet.
On the final leg, a user needs to link up MyMetaVerse to Minecraft enabling access to Microsoft’s NFTs within the blocky 3D world.
Once inside Minecraft, a user can type a directive /wallet that will spawn collectible “companions” who follow the user around the server and protect them.
“NFTs are important because they provide irrefutable proof of digital scarcity”,
said Simon Kertonegoro, vice-president of developer success at Enjin.
“With over 126 million users, the ability to spawn blockchain assets inside a Minecraft server is a huge step towards NFT adoption,”
Finally, completing the quest in Minecraft will enable players to unlock fungible tokens that provide benefits in Telegram and Discord. The “Wand” token can be used to unlock exclusive chat groups in popular social messaging apps.
