Founder & Creator of Praise
Dropping Soon: Praiseland Metaverse NFTs are Funky and Fresh
The Product team has been developing game assets, storylines, and new characters for the Praiseland metaverse. Upcoming features and new artwork is revealed in our Fall, 2022 hype video. Check it out on Twitter and give us a retweet!👇
The Pal Points™ reward system rolled out a few weeks ago.
Since launch, the Pals have completed over 1,000 quests and collected nearly one million Pal Points. We’re still working out some kinks to improve the redemption process, so please bear with us.
Overall, we’ve been happy with the points system. More quests are coming soon! If you have questions or ideas regarding Pal Points™, please get in touch.
Praise Media™ is a Wholistic Marketing Agency for Web3 Projects and Brands
Prior to focusing on Praise, we operated LaunchTeam, a boutique marketing agency. Since 2016, we’ve helped 50+ companies go to market in the blockchain space — and those companies have raised $500M+. We also incubated Praise. LaunchTeam is now merging with Praise to power the media pillar of our business.
Praise Media brings us a new revenue stream, and will strengthen Praise as a valued growth partner in Web3. The agency will run our events, create content, organize giveaways, and consult with clients to execute major launch campaigns.

Celebrity Photographer, Jim Jordan, to Lead Partnerships

His notable shoots include celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Zendaya, and the Kardashians; magazine covers for Vogue and Vanity Fair; and TV commercial campaigns for clients like Mercedes Benz, Warner Brothers, J.Crew, and many more.
Jordan’s newest venture, White Cross Worldwide, is bringing major fashion brands, musicians, sports figures, and film/television networks into the metaverse.

Giveaways & Partners
Please enjoy the curated opportunities below, chosen carefully by our partnerships team.
Giveaway: Praise Pals
In Praiseland, you can earn Pal Points and redeem them for game assets. Join our latest contest to win bundles of Pal Points, a free Praise Pals™ character, a VIP Gold member card, or a presale allowlist reservation for future drops. Good luck!
Award Pool helps brands and creators gamify their marketing campaigns with custom tasks to build, engage, and monetize their communities. Fans can participate in challenges, earn points, and redeem NFT-based rewards through a custom-designed white-label widget. We love this solution. We decided to use it ourselves because it ties into Praise Credits, our upcoming non-crypto digital currency. See our integration and start earning Pal Points™.
We’ve aped into the SENSES collection — a sensual, meditative journey created by David Bianchi, with music from PLS&TY and artwork from dogandemir. David is a good friend, and one of the 88 Founding Pals.
We plan to keep buying and trading quality collections as a partnership strategy. Got one for us? Hit Reply. Then get zen on the SENSES site.
