NFTLA 2023 Partnership
We’ve been close with the producers of NFTLA for 5+ years. Josh Kriger is actually a Founding Pal and one of the 88 founders of Praise.
We decided to team up with NFTLA to bolster their BD efforts for 2023. At Consensus and NFTNYC, members of the Praise crew held meetings with potential partners, built new relationships, and created compilation videos of the trips for marketing. We’ll be bringing partners to NFTLA all year.
Almost every discussion about NFTLA is positive. All the big names see it as a prime location for exposure.
Austin was HOT—both literally and in terms of sizzling opportunities. The conference attracted both Web3 and Defi / Web2 companies, so it was a melting pot of interests and ideas.
We spent time at the conference, but also got VIP treatment at Mayan Warrior and other related events. The general consensus in Austin is that Web3 and crypto are here to stay. Many of our connections in Austin will become partners for NFTLA and for Praise.
The energy in the Big Apple for NFTNYC was off the charts. Timesquare became a digital beacon of hope, love, and culture. The entire city was alive with talk of the future.
The Marriott Marquis featured 9 floors of exhibits and activations. The side events were too big to be called “side events.” For example, communities like the Cool Cats and the Doodles had an entire itinerary that lived outside of the conference hotel. To give you a sense of scale, Doodles booked The ChainSmokers for a private concert at their event.
This is a new theme in Web3. The conferences become a magnet for massive gatherings and sprawling events that build on top of each other.
Our next festival, Web3 in the Hills, is in the planning stage. We’re bringing together the most remarkable changemakers in the space for an epic unconference in Hollywood. If you enjoyed our last event, get ready for another magical experience filled with wonder, curiosity, art, and opportunity. Learn more in our Events Deck below.
Utility-Based Gaming NFTs
We’re carefully building new features for Praiseland, which has a game-like feel. Our metaverse will interact seamlessly with IRL experiences. Web3 can be unsettling because we’re building alongside our audience in real-time. It feels messy, but it gives the consumer more visibility into the process.
We see direct paths into fashion, sports, gaming, music, media, and more. We’ll integrate these verticals into Praise in the form of events in the real world that mesh seamlessly with our digital experiences.
Some of our upcoming metaverse features include Islands, Joyful Jewels, Love Bombers, and Love Machines. We’ve hinted at Jetpacks, XP, Praise Credits, leveling, and more. Future character drops and expansion packs are also underway.
Paris + Praise + Fashion
Our next stop might be Paris. We have several good reasons to go. Let’s just say, Paris is calling us. And Paris loves fashion.
Love, Peace, and Praise. 🤟🏻✌🏻🙏🏻
