Today Elvis Presley Enterprises and web3 studio, Run it Wild announced a series of major partnerships for its metaverse project, Elvis On-Chain. The new partners include The Sandbox, Decentraland, Voxel Architects, DAPPCRAFT, and Metakey. The announcement comes as the project gears up for its genesis launch next month. So what is Elvis On-Chain NFT project and what are its Elvis Presley metaverse plans?
About Elvis On-Chain’s Metaverse Strategy
The Elvis On-Chain NFT project has added a string of partners to build a one-of-a-kind meeting place for Elvis fans in the metaverse. In essence, this space will be “part-time capsule and part amusement park”—and ultimately, a celebration of the pop icon.
Each of the partners will develop a variety of experiences in the Elvis metaverse. The Sandbox, for instance, will create the Elvis avatars for their native game. This way, Elvis fans will have a chance to turn into the legend himself in the metaverse. Next, digital creators, Voxel Architects will ensure that The Sandbox’s Elvis avatars are hand-crafted and highly detailed.
Meanwhile, wearables designer, DAPPCRAFT will design all the officially licensed wearables for the Block Party. This includes the Elvis jumpsuit and an iconic Elvis style wig!
“These incredible partners, all leaders in the craft, help us build a one-of-a-kind meeting place for Elvis fans,” said Adam De Cata, Run It Wild Director. “The Elvis metaverse will host an array of ground-breaking experiences, generative collections, showcase of rare concerts, fan experiences and real events.”
What is the Decentraland Elvis Block Party?
Finally, after the genesis NFT drop, Decentraland will host The Elvis Block Party. Interestingly, the party is aiming to set the first Guinness World Record in the virtual world for most Elvis impersonators in one place! Obviously, an official Guinness World Records judge will attend the event to verify the record.
Elvis Block Party attendees will have access to the wearables designed by DAPPCRAFT. Besides, Elvis Genesis Key holders (more on that later) will get additional perks. Basically, the project will airdrop holders officially licensed Elvis Decentraland wearables. This includes the pop icon’s legendary jumpsuits, outfits, shoes, wigs, and sunglasses.
This is the perfect opportunity for Elvis fans from across the globe to come together and celebrate the legacy of The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll!
What is the Elvis Presley NFT Collection?
The next phase of the Elvis On-Chain NFT project is the launch of 1,935 one-of-a-kind Elvis Genesis Key NFTs. Each NFT will be a 1-of-1, created based on a 1968 special that marked Elvis’ stage comeback.
Needless to say, these genesis keys are packed with utilities. Access to members-only Discord, both physical and virtual galleries, NFT exhibitions, and pop-ups are all part of the perks. Holders will also get to vote for future releases from the Elvis vault, which contains never-before-seen items from the legend.
All in all, the Elvis On-Chain NFT project is well on track to create the biggest celebration of Elvis Presley in the metaverse. How it delivers on its promise of an Elvis metaverse remains to be seen.
