DeLorean partners with Ethernity to Release an NFT Collection with Metaverse-Enabled Unlockables
Revealing the next generation of metaverse-enabled NFTs with the DeLorean collection on Ethernity
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2021 / Ethernity, the original authenticated NFT platform (aNFT) is partnering with the DeLorean Motor Company to launch an NFT collection with metaverse-enabled unlockables. It has been 40 years since the company’s inception, and whilst most independent car manufacturers fade into history, DeLorean has stood the test of time. These 40 years allowed for perspective as to how truly visionary the development of the DeLorean was. Most dreams and innovation had to be curated by conglomerates and corporations. Yet DeLorean had the vision to develop a car outside of the system and make it real. Some 6000 DeLorean’s are still on the road today, and now they’re entering the metaverse.
The Delorean NFT collection will launch on November 20th at ethernity.io, and will last 72 hours. The collection will consist of 7 artworks from celebrated artists Riocam and Blunt Action, each with their own level of exclusiveness. Ethernity is auctioning off 2 unique 1 of 1 NFTs. The first NFT being auctioned is ‘DeLorean Reflective’ by Blunt Action. It is a looping video that captures the DMC-12 driving through a reflective avenue. The winning bidder of the 1 of 1 will be airdropped an exclusive Metaverse-native unlockable of the Delorean. The unlockable file will be for display and eventual use in virtual worlds with .obj file capabilities. The second NFT being auctioned off is “DeLorean (DMC) x Riocam #1” by Riocam. In this exclusive 1 of 1 NFT, Riocam captures the DMC-12’s timeless design and showcases the brilliance of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s lines and form in a still. The highest bidder of this aNFT will receive an Infinity Objects physical-digital display frame. The highest bidder will also receive a BTS video, along with an invite to the grand opening of Riocam’s gallery in Miami.
50 lucky buyers of the ‘DeLorean: Into the Metaverse’ NFT will be selected using Chainlink’s VRF technology in a raffle to be airdropped an exclusive Metaverse-native unlockable version following the sale. The unlockable file will be for display and eventual use in virtual worlds with .obj file capabilities. Blunt Action and Ethernity’s metaverse partner YouCan Galaxy designed this exclusive Metaverse version of the car, a first in the lineup of Ethernity’s coming Metaverse/NFT cross-utility.
Throughout the whole collection, the two artists capture the essence and spirit of the DMC-12. Riocam represents a retro and yet futurist vision of the DMC-12, which highlights the timelessness of the design. Blunt Action captures a cyberpunk mood and shows how the DMC-12 design persists through time. This is an ode to the DMC-12, as well as all those who contributed to its creation, and also those who seek to keep the vision alive and moving forward.
