Historical pioneers brought back to life as NFTs depicting how they could look today

Pionauts, one of the most unique and groundbreaking NFT art collections, is set to launch on 28 April 2022, announced Johan Van Asperen Vervenne, the founder and visionary behind the team that created the series.

Today, Pionauts is the world's first company to create large-scale photorealistic appearances of historical pioneers, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Nefertiti, Aristotle, Cleopatra, and so many more.

"Pionauts began as an idea for an NFT collection. Most NFT collections have about six different backgrounds," Johan said. "My team used 84 different 17th and 18th-century paintings to create many of the backgrounds used."

The 150 original pioneers selected by Van Asperen Vervenne and his team mostly lived before the invention of the camera. The team behind Pionauts are artificial intelligence, 2D and 3D graphic design specialists from nine countries.

“People of all ages are fascinated by pioneers that lived before the invention of the camera,” Van Asperen Vervenne said. “Before Pionauts came to life, we only saw old paintings and could only imagine what they looked like when they were alive.”

Van Asperen Vervenne felt it was time to bring them back to life today and go beyond the “stories we read about what they accomplished and go beyond imagining what stories they would tell about themselves if they were alive today.”

With that in mind, Van Asperen Vervenne and his team brought to life “the best-known pioneers with the latest 3D and artificial intelligence (AI) technology.” Applying Deep Learning technology and months of manual retouching, a collection of 8,500 unique variations was created with modified characteristics such as age, facial features and expressions.

Voting utility

Each of these NFTs comes with voting powers that grant holders of the breath-taking digital art collectibles the right to voice how they want the Pionauts comic stories told. They also come with copyrights and many of the photorealistic pioneers' portraits are already trademarked, said Van Asperen Vervenne.

“These portrait trademarks safeguard against infringement of copyrights increasing the value of the Pionauts project,” he added. “Pionauts owns the copyrights for commercial and non-commercial use.

 Royalty income

The Pionauts team sees a positive future in collaborating in various entertainment, marketing and educational projects. Johan and his team's goal is to create more 3D models of pioneer's faces and explore collaborations with Metaverse games, brands, educational- and the movie industry.

“Our goal for Pionauts NFT holders is to share in our future success as the Pionauts brand expands. Pionauts will share 25% of its royalty income with its NFT holders that are KYC (Know Your Customers) compliant,” Johan said.

Pionauts allows all Pionaut NFT holders to exclusively co-create new storylines about breathtaking interplanetary journeys and have a voice in choosing where the story goes next, Johan said.

"The ambition of the Pionauts team is to create a series of pilots, blockbuster movies, similarly as Pixar's Toy Story franchise and the Marvel cinematic universe," Van Asperen Vervenne said. "Pionauts has some very exciting announcements in the pipeline," he said.

The Pionaut's inception

Van Asperen Vervenne one day became intrigued by musician George Aquilla Hardy's depiction of what the first US President would look like today. But Johan went further. He dove into the topic of facial recognition and researched facial reconstruction techniques for digital illustration.

After he concluded his investigation, he decided to see if he could recreate the faces of a few famous people throughout history. After forming a dedicated team of international designers, he looked at historic pioneers regarded as some of the world's greatest minds.

With the help of some of the world's best artificial intelligence (AI) experts, including the founding father of the AI Gan source code, Johan added movements to the face of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle from the image of a statue representing his likeness.

Patience paid off, and it enticed Johan and his colleagues to continue with more restorations. They chose several more famous personalities of the past, that also include Socrates, Beethoven and William Shakespeare.

After many hours of meticulous attention to detail, the talented group transformed the faces of several of the most renowned pioneers worldwide into a photorealistic likeness of them thanks to groundbreaking AI. And then the decision to make them Pionauts.

"Earth is explored by the greatest minds in history. Imagine the progress we can make if these brilliant people help us explore space?" Johan asked. "And thus, the pioneers from history became Pionauts."

Utility

Each of the 8,500 NFTs comes with great utility. They come with voting rights on comic stories with the pioneer characters, their stories, the possibility for holders to input their stories, royalties from their sales, and future movie deals from which we like each NFT holder to profit.

“The goal is that holders of any Pionauts NFT will enjoy passive income as the Pionauts brand expands,” and “This 'army' of thousands of Pionauts NFT holders will undoubtedly help signal, prevent and protect Pionauts portrait rights for the benefit of all those invested in the collection.”

The unique Pionauts NFT collection launches on 28 April 2022

Nowadays, if you haven't at least heard of NFTs, well…you most likely are living under a rock. But with so many NFT projects focused on sports, what differentiates one project from another? Hoops Association is bringing old-school, real-life benefits to NFTs and wants to show Basketball fans what the crypto space can truly do for them (beyond just collecting fun GIFs)

Hoops Association is a collection of 10,000 unique ERC721 Hoops NFTs designed for basketball lovers, by basketball lovers. Conceived by Maso Rich, (Mason Richman) the art producer of the sold-out Golden State Warriors NFTs, Hoops Association is developing a basketball-centric club where members can participate in exclusive Association experiences and benefits.

But why is the Hoops Association different from other projects? Well to start, Hoops Association is your one-stop-shop for all-things basketball – on the blockchain, in the metaverse or in real life. The vibrant, active community has drawn fans on the cutting edge of sports and technology and is hosted by a team committed to keeping the project strong and the vibe going! This includes community competitions such as HOOPS MADNESS (Hoops' March Madness competition complete with AMAZING prizes), AMAs and Spaces with influencers in the basketball and crypto communities, and all the basketball news and conversation you can imagine!

And the real-life utility proves this isn't your usual NFT art collection! Each Hoops NFT comes with bonuses designed to benefit holders IMMEDIATELY. This includes:

  • Ticket Concierge services
  • Exclusive discounts on NBA tickets
  • Converse/Engage with NBA players

If that wasn't enough, in collaboration with Adam Richman and his company Medium-Rare, the team behind Shaq's Fun House, the Hoops Team is already curating the Association's first IRL event, Hoops Fest!

To top it all off, the project already boasts a fully-doxxed team of top-tier talent! 

Ali Rahmoun, the Art Director for Hoops, is the artist behind the sports design startup SportsTemplates. His 3D sports template designs have been used by over 10 NBA teams, ESPN, and many other design professionals in sports. 

Talent rounding out the Hoops team roster includes AJ Rompza, basketball trainer by day and viral TikTok star by night, and Crissa Jackson, the 13th woman to play for the legendary Harlem Globe Trotters with over 15M followers across social media. These two sit at the top of an ever-growing list of basketball influencers supporting the project. 

Hoops NFTs will be minting in the next 4 weeks - a celebration of March Madness and just-in-time for the Playoffs. Whether you love basketball, are interested in the NFT space, or just need an AMAZING Father's Day gift for this year, you will not want to miss Hoops Association's first drop!

Singapore Based KarineDAO Launches NFT Collection to Drive Female Empowerment

Singapore, Mar 16, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Singapore based KarineDAO is proud to announce the launch of its NFT collection project, which will help drive female empowerment.

In fact, NFTs are relatively new in the digital space and has a massive impact on the digital currency world. According to the data from Fortunly, there were 1.538 million NFT art sales for a single month in 2021, and the entire year recorded more than 11 million art sales.

A recent research shows that women account for just 16% of the NFT market while men takes up the majority, a disparity KarineDAO seeks to improve.

What is KarineDAO?

The KarineDAO project is a set of 1515 digital NFT collectibles, known as Karine NFT, to be minted on 17th of March 2022.

Every Karine NFT has unique set of properties that provide each NFT owners with tangible benefits. One of the key benefits is providing the owner the ability to leverage on Karine's businesses, partnerships and collaborations from other companies, both local and global brands.

The Mission of KarineDAO

To drive diversity and improve the number of women participating in the NFT space, Karine's primary mission is to empower more female entrepreneurs globally through the power of innovation and community.

The company is guided by three core principles:

  1. To get more women into the NFT industry - KarineDAO's goal is to increase the number of female NFT collectors and traders to take advantage of this novel technology.
  2. To foster a sense of community among its members - KarineDAO seeks to help its members learn and earn in the industry by tokenizing their unique content, hence helping them actualize their dreams.
  3. Get members' businesses running - KarineDAO Tank series seeks to support and potentially fund startups that are female empowerment driven. The shared resources will enhance Karine's network to add value to these supported projects.

KarineDAO supports companies that empower women

By supporting KarineDAO NFTs, holders will access its 'KarineDAO Tank'-style series for female empowerment. KarineDAO welcomes all its NFT holders' business ideas as long as they support the cause of female empowerment.

Shortlisted KarineDAO NFT holders will present their ideas to the KarineDAO community. Then, they will collectively vote for the projects that they wish to support.

"Projects selected by the holders will have full access to my company's resources and our partners' support," Karine also added. "The KarineDAO team will bring on project advisors, who will provide business advice, networking access and resources."

KarineDAO learn and grow from NFTs together

Buying KarineDAO NFTs will also grant NFT holders exclusive trainings in entrepreneurship and personal development. In the process, they will learn how to create their own NFTs, use the NFT platforms to launch them, and eventually break into the NFT industry.

Karine's dream is for her NFT holders to "learn and grow together." By empowering them to launch their own NFTs, she hopes they might enjoy some passive income in the future as well.

KarineDAO NFT holders will gain hyper-exclusive merchandise and discounts

Another unique benefit KarineDAO NFT holders gain is its custom-made merchandise.

"This is something no other NFT is currently offering," said Karine.

The NFT holders can vote on the merchandise they wish to create. This includes cosmetics, skincare, supplements or any products that relate to lifestyle or health. Once chosen, Karine's factory in Korea will create these specially designed products for its NFT holders. These will not be for sale to the general public.

"The most amazing part is you get to choose," Karine added. "You are part of the project. The experience is different from shopping online or buying things off the shelves."

KarineDAO NFT holders also enjoy exclusive discounts and savings from Karine's brand partners.

"Because I love wine, if any of our holders show our NFTs to our partnered brands, they can get a special discount for their purchases," Karine added.

KarineDAO promotes business growth

Karine wants more people to support female-empowered businesses. "I love helping people, so I thought why not work on helping more like-minded people to fulfill and create their dreams, and to help them grow their businesses? This is much more value-adding and fulfilling for me as an individual," Karine shared.

The project also wishes to give both men and women a place to belong in the NFT space.

"I wanted to bring my community and women into the NFT space and let them see for themselves that businesses should add value to each other and not treat each other as competitors," Karine said. "We'll never grow if we do not share our resources and network. That is why I would like to empower the community with more of these values. Members who are not entrepreneurs themselves, they can join our community to learn and grow together."

The Team

KarineDAO was founded by beauty veteran Karine Cheong, a 2016/2017 winner of Asia Successful Achiever. With more than 10 years of experience in the beauty and health industry, Karine has a proven track record of building several successful businesses in Southeast Asia.

Other core members of the team are Hong Qi Yu, KarineDAO's Project Advisor and the CEO of Tokenize Xchange. The project is also backed by Alson Chia, Project Manager of KarineDAO and the Head of Operations & Trading of Tokenize Xchange, and William Charlton, KarineDAO's Community Manager who is responsible for business development at Tokenize Xchange.

Official launch

Karine NFT will be available for minting on 17 March 2022 in KarineDAO.com. Join KarineDAO discord to support the drive and cause.
