Animoca Brands announces Mocaverse, the NFT collection to empower Web3 community connections
“Mocas” will provide Animoca Brands friends and family with utility including learning, playing, building, doing good
15 December 2022 — Hong Kong — Animoca Brands, the company advancing digital property rights for gaming and the open metaverse, announced today Mocaverse, its official PFP NFT collection designed to strengthen the company’s ecosystem of Web3 and metaverse-centric projects. The Mocaverse NFT collection represents the shared values and ethos of Animoca Brands and its portfolio companies and partners. The collection will be released starting in Q1 of 2023.
Mocaverse comprises 8,888 NFTs of characters called Mocas, each belonging to one of five tribes: Dreamers, Builders, Angels, Connectors, and Neo-Capitalists. Each of the tribes represents the diverse yet complementary personas of changemakers in Web3.
Mocaverse will feature four main categories of utility, known as realms, representing the collection’s core pillars: learn, play, build, and do good. The realms will function as channels for users to exchange ideas, seek new knowledge, and grow as a community.
Owners of Mocas will enjoy various membership benefits including opportunities for learning together (such as expert AMAs and masterclasses), playing together (via game passes and exclusive in-game assets), building together (accelerator program), and doing good together (organizing and contributing to social causes).
Mocaverse is designed to form stronger connections between Animoca Brands’ group companies, partners, portfolio, cross-project collaborations, and the various forms of utility found across the Animoca Brands ecosystem. Like the ecosystem it represents, Mocaverse will continue to evolve and add new utility and collaborations, which will be announced as they become available.
Animoca Brands has a growing portfolio of over 380 projects focused on various sectors within the Web3 industry, ranging from blockchain games, to esports, to platforms and marketplaces. Mocaverse will improve the connections and cohesiveness of this sprawling ecosystem to bring together the best builders, thought leaders, and early adopters with the goal to innovate, create, and grow a supportive Web3 community.
Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands, commented: “The community of Animoca Brands stretches around the world and across the open metaverse. Our family and friends include builders and leaders who are shaping Web3 culture and creating the future of this space. Mocaverse is an opportunity to create a tighter and more synergistic community as we strengthen the connections between our teams and portfolio, and create new ways to build the next great projects and platforms.”
