PROOF Collective has been on fire the past six months – from launching Moonbirds and Oddities, to hosting events at NFT NYC and ticking over 100 PROOF Podcasts. They also grew their team to 30, including hiring a Director of Research and full-time PROOF analyst. Now, PROOF has released its plans for the future and what we can expect to see from the team in the coming months.
Let’s take a look at the future of PROOF.
Europeans rejoice – as PROOF are heading out on a European tour. Named ‘The PROOF Roadshow’, these events are described as being ‘less of a party and more of a way to chat with others and getting to know each other’. Some stops on the upcoming tour include Lisbon, Paris, Berlin, and London (during Frieze). Details will be announced on Discord, and there are whispers of an Australiasian tour in the works.
In addition to hosting their own roadshow, they are also throwing a ‘PROOF Of Conference’. This will be a multi-day celebration of Web3, with art exhibitions, IRL mint experiences, and talks by leading figures in the space, expected to happen in mid-2023. If you’re a PROOF Collective member then you receive a VIP pass for free! Moonbirds and Oddities holders will have first access and discounted passes when ticket sales go live.
PROOF Collective Updates
Expect to see regular resources dropped by the collective in an effort to continue on their mission to bring clarity and insights to the NFT space. This includes monthly Deep Dives exploring new industries and sectors of the NFT ecosystem, a daily newsletter, and weekly reports on trends and themes.
Curated Products from PROOF
PROOF is striving to bring more world-class artists on board. In line with this goal, they have announced a series of curated products. Firstly, Grails will now be a 3-times a year event, and they have already begun curating season 3. Secondly, they are enhancing their collaborations by making their smart contract expertise available to collaborating artists. This will in turn bring more innovation and novelty to NFT projects.
They are also bringing a new product to their market – PROOF Curated. This product invites top artists and curators to curate limited releases of their favourite emerging artists, all in partnership with PROOF. The first Curated drop is in partnership with a season II Grails artists (yet to be announced).
Finally, they bring us Genesis. Through Genesis, PROOF will bring established traditional artists and creators into NFTs for the first time.
PROOF certainly has huge plans this year. In addition to all of the above, they are also planning on a Moonbirds DAO and treasury, and have just announced Moonbirds Mythics – the first official expansion to the Moonbirds collection.
