India’s first fully curated NFT marketplace, developed by Jupiter Meta, will go live on 23 February. The digital marketplace will focus on verticals such as music, film, and gaming, creating singular experiences for each user and enabling everyone to maximise their time in the metaverse.
Jupiter Meta’s marketplace is backed by its own level-1 Rubix blockchain technology with zero gas fees. The blockchain is green, sustainable, and 100 per cent secure, ensuring users have a fast, safe experience.
The project’s art is being led by Karthik SS of 108 Collective. The collaborative group is renowned for its surreal, abstract styles and has developed many installations across India. The digital project will feature the group’s perspective of Chennai, rendered through a blend of artists’ creativity and historical background. The artists will also physically recreate the art on walls at a popular location in Chennai later as part of a beautification drive.
Manasa Rajan, Business Head, Jupiter Meta, said, “Jupiter Meta is an outcome of our vision to create a metaverse for all, for every creative mind, and not just tech buffs. We are witnessing just the beginning of a revolutionary shift in what Web 3.0 can allow us to do and are happy to be starting our journey with the marketplace. We’re all defining pop culture at this very moment, and it’s only going to get bigger.”
“As someone with strong Chennai roots, the project is very personal. This is a celebration of Chennai, its people, language, and flavours. And also the technology that the city prides itself on. As artists, the metaverse is huge for us, and new opportunities are everywhere,” said Karthik SS.
