Digital Entertainment Asset and Bascule Inc. Launches the World's First NFT From Space
THE FIRST SPACE SUNRISE 2022 WILL BE LAUNCHED IN REAL-TIME FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 2 December 2021 -Digital Entertainment Asset
Pte. Ltd (DEA), a global GameFi company and Bascule Inc., led by Representative
Director Masayoshi Boku, have teamed up to launch 'The First Space Sunrise', an
exclusive limited edition NFT (Non-fungible token) which features real-time
photos from the International Space Station (ISS).
The collaboration is the first-of-its-kind and marks the dawn of a new
era in the rapidly growing NFT space.
The partnership brings together Bascule's leading expertise in the
space and entertainment business by tapping into "THE SPACE FRONTIER
STUDIO KIBO (Hope)' which has been broadcasting an interactive live
stream from the ISS since September 2021 as part of the J-SPARC joint project
with The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
Commenting on the launch, DEA
CSO Kozo Yamada said "The narrative is one of the most important factors for a
collectible NFT. I believe that NFTs will grow in global importance in 2022.
With this NFT, collectors will get to witness a 'non-fungible' moment together
by collecting the first images of the year from space. As someone who loves
both space and NFTs this collection is an absolute must have."
"THE FIRST SPACE SUNRISE 2022" will be the world's first NFT project to
publish a collection of NFTs from space. This launch adds another first for the
partnership after the duo hosted a countdown party on the ISS KIBO studio
giving viewers a real-time view of the earth as they counted down into 2021. In
2022, the public will have an opportunity to go a step further and claim some
of the world's first NFTs to be published from space.
In total, 2022 NFT
collections will be issued to mark the start of the new year. The photos will
be the very first captured after midnight from 00:00 UTC/GMT, 1 January 2022
from the ISS, which orbits the earth every 90 minutes. 20.22% of proceeds will be donated to the International Astronomical
Project for the purchase of a next generation ultra-large telescope to support
space development projects around the world.
