The Quest of Evolution launches the world’s first crypto-novel called The Oracle’s Verse on OpenSea
When you think about NFTs, the first thing that comes to mind is often digital art and images of apes. However, The Quest of Evolution, a decentralized artist collective, is taking NFTs to a new level by using dynamic NFT technology for literature.
Today, The Quest of Evolution announced the launch of The Oracle’s Verse, which it said to be the world’s first “crypto-novel”. The dynamic NFT collection consists of 6 one-of-a-kind multimedia NFTs that enable owners to write their stories on-chain, pass them to the next owner, and earn passive income. The Oracle’s Verse is now available on OpenSea.
The Oracle’s Verse is a series of six multimedia NFTs that depicts the tales of six characters exploring their owners’ minds and gathering unique memories stimulated by a multisensory artwork. The stories evolve as the owners add text, and the narrative can go on indefinitely, with each new owner free to continue the storyline as they see fit.
Conceived as the first in a series of crypto narratives, The Oracle’s Verse will be followed by a set of scientific essays written by T. Dylan Daniel (aka Epic Dylan), philosopher, scientist, and founder of PageDAO, the first essay going on auction on OpenSea May 1st. Thereafter, a crime fiction crypto novel will be released in collaboration with writer Joseph Nassise and musician Zep. The New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer has more than 60 novels to his name, while Zep is also famed for his infectious, heavy hip-hop and video shorts that have garnered millions of views and the support of artists like Limp Bizkit.
Anyone who purchases a dynamic NFT from The Oracle’s Verse on OpenSea inherits the corresponding character and underlying assets (music, image, and text). This grants them the right to visit the project’s website and append up to 200 words to its storyline, directly onto its smart contract. Upon reselling the NFT, its next owner will be entitled to repeat this process, creating an indelible and eternal story that is forever written onchain.
The Oracle’s Verse was conceived by The Quest of Evolution, whose multi-chain platform evolving NFT collections to be launched across most EVM networks like Ethereum, Polygon, Moonbeam, Optimism, and Arbitrum. Its native $QEV token is issued on Moonbeam and serves as an incentive mechanism within The Quest of Evolution ecosystem. Purchasers of The Oracle’s Verse NFTs who contribute to its evolving narrative will be entitled to perpetual royalty payouts in MATIC as the collection was launched on Polygon and a further 200 $QEV tokens.
Also, every contributor from one of The Quest of Evolution’s crypto-novel will get a share of the Global Royalty Pool and get rewarded every time one novel IP is licensed or sold to third-party entities in the filming, gaming, video, or merchandising industry.
The Quest of Evolution is a decentralized collaborative framework that empowers artists to create value together and reap the benefits while supporting social causes. Their mission is to foster artistic collaborations to create masterpieces that have monetization value to third-party licensors in industries like film, merchandise, and gaming. The Quest of Evolution aims to become a community-driven platform where holding $QEV tokens equates to owning a portion of the IP rights.
