Describe the project
Next level NFT publishing company aimed at providing a platform for authors to publish their literature as NFTs and broaden their market(s) while increasing their exposure, engagement, and income. One of the first of its kind to produce literary NFTs for all literature types and writer levels. Company will service all interested, but will gain its notoriety from its What’s Next Way of minting and releasing literary NFTs.
Does the project have any unique characteristics or IP?
Yes. Company differs from all competitors and NFT marketplaces by its unique proposition. There are 3 ways that writers can join us on their literary NFT journey as an author. 1) They can pay for our service as a non-member where we simply take their literature and turn it into NFT-ready files. They would be responsible for minting and selling. 2) join as a member with limited benefits. They would assume some of the perks of joining the What’s Next family such as NFT creation, certificate of membership, and 100% royalties. However, we would only sell their NFTs directly on the marketplace. Whereas option 3) retains full membership perks and benefits such as, but not limited too, editing, reviews, multiple revisions, physical prints, and their literary NFTs featured exclusively in our pack drops. Those with full membership rights can write and earn their way to VIP experiences and profit sharing. Writers choosing to join us under option 2 or 3 will have their literature turned into NFTs using the What’s Next Way. This style allows us to take upwards of 75% of a written piece and break it down into 2-20 singular NFTs. Each NFT would be a partial to a complete set. The only way for readers to find out what’s next or how the piece ends is for them to collect each individual NFT for that specific literary work and redeem it on our site. Once redeemed they will unlock the full version in pdf. The more readers collect, the more they can unlock such as physical copies, autographed works, audio versions, sneak peek into upcoming releases, etc. The What’s Next Way of creating literary NFTs will allow readers and collectors to become more engaged, keep them anxiously awaiting, and create an undeniable buzz as everyone scrambles to find out what’s next to come.Alongside our literary NFTs we will later create What’s Next character NFTs based on genre and literary types. This will aide us in dropping genre/literature specific packs and increased engagement from our collectors. Readers who choose to collect our character NFTs will open themselves up to more game, challenge, contest and VIP experiences.
