NFTs Heading To Hollywood
“Gossamer” Animated Movie Series to Incorporate Blockchain Technology

New York, NY, USA (June 23, 2022) – The Miami-based NFT metaverse gaming studio, XYZZY, will be working with Hollywood’s BRON Digital, a division of BRON Media Corp to create an NFT collection linked to the 8-episodes.

At a star-studded event in New York last night during the famed NFT.NYC convention, the Dubai-based Decentralised Investment Group (DIG), who own XYZZY, celebrated their exciting new collaboration with BRON, where they revealed that they will be creating an NFT collection to accompany BRON’s “Gossamer,” an animated movie series comprised of 8 half hour-long episodes.

“Gossamer” is based on the young adult novel by critically acclaimed author Lois Lowry (The Giver, The Willoughbys). The voice cast of the series will be led by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, Thomasin McKenzie, Vera Farmiga, Richard E. Grant, Wilmer Valderrama, Alanna Masterson and Courtney Rosemont, who makes her debut.

Grammy Award-winning artist and producer Timbaland and his longtime business partner Gary Marella, co-founders of Beatclub, are Executive Music Supervisors of the series and will provide music for “Gossamer” from Beatclub artists, producers and songwriters.

The “Gossamer” animated movie series will be accompanied by a 10,000 NFT collection of the show’s adult characters, as well as a play-to-earn game based on the show, making it one of the first series to be coming to TV, theatres and Web3 simultaneously.

“This is an NFT project big enough for the big screen,” said Aaron L Gilbert, Chairman and CEO of BRON Media Corp, explaining how the 10,000 piece “Gossamer” NFT collection and the “Gossamer” Movie series are linked. “The characters that viewers will see and fall in love with on the silver screen will be the same ones they’re buying in the NFT collection. Web3 has never had a chance to intersect with mainstream media quite like this.”

XYZZY, specialists in building blockchain games, NFT digital assets and tokenized ownership, will build on their expertise in the field, as well as DIG’s position as global Web3 advisory, to create a Hollywood centric NFT collection like no other.

This collaboration’s focus is the futurisation of multimedia for BRON Digital on behalf of DIG, and this will be the start of a focused journey into adapting blockchain technology so it fits into the world of Hollywood.

Haydn Snape, founder and CEO of DIG and Web3 advisor to BRON Media Corp, will navigate all NFT and token strategies. He revealed that 10,000 NFTs will encompass the “Gossamer” NFT collection, and that a play-to-earn game based on the TV series is also being developed.

“Blockchain technology allows us to reimagine how audiences engage with content,” explains Snape. “DIG has demonstrated incredible results when it comes to futurizing industries and businesses and getting them to understand, embrace and engage so that they fit into the future, so for us to get to do this for a celebrated Hollywood studio is incredibly exciting. We are taking the building blocks of decentralisation – tokens, gamification, metaverse compatibility and the like – and applying them to the world of entertainment.”

Fans who were quick in connecting their digital wallets to the “Gossamer” landing page (gossamer.world) received a free, dynamic NFT, dubbed “Gossamer Seed”, meaning they will visually change in the holders’ wallets over time.

At the time of mint, fans were unaware of the utility of this free NFT. However, within two hours, all 10,000 free “Gossamer Seed” NFTs had sold out on OpenSea, hitting a floor price of 0.15 ETH, and a trading volume of over $100,000, making the Gossamer NFT collection already a highly anticipated commodity.

The utility of the free “Gossamer Seed” NFT will be uncovered as the “Gossamer” world grows and develops. Fans will have to keep following announcements made via the “Gossamer” Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) account (@gossamer_world) for any challenges they need to complete in order to unlock the full potential of their “Gossamer Seed”.

Dogecoin price could rally 20% in July with this bullish reversal pattern

Dogecoin (DOGE) looks ready to extend its rebound move despite the current crypto bear market.

DOGE’s price appears to have been painting a bump-and-run-reversal (BARR) bottom since May 11, a technical pattern that points to extended trend reversals in a bear market. It consists of three successful phases: Lead-In, Bump and Run.

3 charts showing this Bitcoin price drop is unlike summer 2021

Bitcoin (BTC) bear markets come in many shapes and sizes, but this one has given many reason to panic.

BTC has been described as facing “a bear of historic proportions” in 2022, but just one year ago, a similar feeling of doom swept crypto markets as Bitcoin saw a 50% drawdown in weeks.

FTM Begins to Retest Previous Highs As Correction May Be Over

FTM Begins to Retest Previous Highs As Correction May Be Over

  • Fantom (FTM) seems to be retesting previous highs.
  • FTM is currently down 1.97% and is trading at $0.2845.
  • FTM could look to target $0.3501 should the mini upwards move continue for FTM.

Fantom (FTM) seems to be “retesting previous highs”, according to Michael van de Poppe. This comes as there has been a mini relief rally in the crypto market.

This does not necessarily mean that FTM has established its bottom yet, so traders should still tread with caution.

At the moment, FTM is one of the top 100 cryptos on CoinMarketCap’s list of most valuable cryptocurrencies in terms of market cap. FTM occupies the 59th position and this places FTM behind The Graph (GRT) in the 58th position and in front of Quant (QNT) in the 60th position.

FTM is currently down 1.97% and is trading at $0.2845 after reaching a high of $0.2947 over the last day. This price translates to about 0.00001361 BTC and 0.0002356 ETH. Things look a bit better for FTM over the larger time frames as the crypto saw a 7.89% increase in price over the last seven days.

FTM now has a market cap that stands at $722,730,787 and when looking at FTM’s 24-hour trading volume, the crypto stands at $166,580,326. This number is down 12.82% over the last day.

When looking at the weekly chart for FTM/USDT, the last two weeks have closed with the FTM price higher than it was at the beginning of the week. It now looks like the current week will also end on a positive note. FTM can now look to target $0.3501 should the mini upwards move continue for FTM. This is a key level because it is also the last price that FTM fell from on the weekly chart.
