The wowTalkies’ proposition is to build the fan engagement platform of choice, especially for movie fans, on Web3. In that world, fans become “superfans”. Fan communities, movie studios and celebrities can contribute to the fans’ endeavor to be a superfan.
wowTalkies is also building for fan engagement on mobile devices providing AR, AI and deep tech-led utilities on and with NFTs/digital collectibles. They are aiming to be the first project to offer a fan-journey, integrating leaderboards, gamification, collectibles, content creation, and communities, setting the benchmark for innovation in the industry.
Decentralization and Fan Engagement
wowTalkies’ long term vision is to democratize fan engagement. They are excited to build an ecosystem where fans connect/hangout with each other first before rubbing shoulders with celebrities and entertainers. wowTakies visualizes that this setup will eventually promote a gamified “super fandom” culture leading to competition and monetization, in a community-driven way.
They further aspires to become the premier web3 destination for all things film and entertainment. Imagine a Game of Thrones enthusiast seeking comprehensive knowledge about all the Valerian swords within George R. R. Martin’s vast Ice and Fire Universe. Look no further than wowTalkies – a one-stop hub for such in-depth information. Furthermore, even George R. R. Martin himself could find inspiration for a potential 7th novel in the series by engaging with the passionate Ice and Fire community thriving on on the platform.
All this will be powered through a decentralized community led-blockchain. wowTalkies empowers fans by providing direct access to its products and services, eliminating the need for intermediaries and their associated bureaucracies.
The wowTalkies and Shardeum partnership
wowTalkies is still in its early stages, but they share a kindred spirit with Shardeum. Their marketplace and fun utility app will be launched on Shardeum first followed by celebrity authored collections. In fact, their marketplace migration to Shardeum was a super-hit with all the collections getting sold out within less than a week of launching on the Shardeum testnet.
Shardeum is an EVM based, super secure and linearly scalable L1 blockchain platform. wowTalkies found that building and developing dapps on Shardeum is a straightforward experience. For a project like theirs, which aims to achieve population-scale impact, the essential elements of linear scaling, low and constant transaction fees, and high fairness are paramount. As the Shardeum user community continues to grow at a rapid pace, exciting collaboration opportunities arise with other promising early-stage projects leveraging the Shardeum ecosystem. These synergistic partnerships hold great potential for mutual advancement and shared success.
Use Cases of wowTalkies on Shardeum
At the heart of the fan-to-superfan journey lies the fan communities, where fans come together to fraternize and flourish. These communities function as atomic networks and mini-DAOs, where fans are judged and rewarded by the community members themselves removed from bias. It’s a tight-knit community family that encompasses all aspects of the fan experience.
Fan to Superfan Leaderboard
The fans to superfans journey will be gamified with an array of exciting competitions. Leaderboards will track the fan journey. Fans will be incentivized to interact with each other, the platform and the communities.
Collectibles and Content Expression
wowTalkies harnesses the power of community-driven fandom by seamlessly integrating content expression, creation, and an immersive journey from fans to superfans. Their platform enables the rental and lending of collectibles, adding a new dimension to the experience.
The wowTalkies Wallet
According to wowTalkies, setting up non-custodial wallets on their platform will be a breeze, offering a user-friendly experience. Additionally, they extend support for third-party wallets on Shardeum. Fans will have the freedom to easily export and import their valuable collectibles, ensuring seamless accessibility and control.
wowTalkies is working towards unique and innovative technology-driven utilities dapp specifically designed to enhance and interact with collectibles. These utilities include:
- Immersing yourself in a personalized experience by placing an AR avatar of your beloved celebrity within a backdrop of your choosing, and capture a memorable selfie
- Step into the spotlight and become the star by seamlessly swapping your face into your favorite movie poster
- Unleash your creativity with a wide array of cool and iconic filters that allow you to become a superhero, the everyday hero next door, or even a legendary character from a fantasy show. The possibilities are endless!
- Immerse yourselves in the world of filmmaking and transport yourselves to any desired backdrop, becoming a part of a captivating film set
- Explore an extensive array of captivating wowTalkies collections and handpick your personal favorite
- Reward your active participation on the app with points that you can earn for engaging and interacting with its various features
- Transform your earned points into valuable assets by exchanging them for the NFTs that capture your interest and align with your preferences
Protocols and SDKs
The platform is built upon three fundamental pillars: 1) the content and expression pillar, 2) the tech-led utilities pillar, and 3) the community-led network pillar. While these pillars are designed to synergize with each other, they can also function independently. As a testament to their versatility, each pillar will be made available as protocols, allowing other projects to leverage and innovate upon their foundation.
Experience the Magic of wowTalkies on Shardeum
The wowTalkies content marketplace, an integral component of the content and expression pillar, was officially launched on the Shardeum testnet on April 7th, 2023. While the collections are sold-out at press time, stay tuned for the upcoming release of more exciting collections for you to explore, enjoy, and acquire.
As a next step, their tech-led utility app will be integrated on the Shardeum testnet soon. Users can then experience collectibles and tech led utilities working in unison with much more to come!
