What is NUBIA?

NUBIA (NFT Universe in Blockchain for International Artists) is an ecosystem that oscillates between non-fungible tokens, international artists and collectors or visitors. This platform offers the possibility for everyone to participate in an immersive experience. We are the gate of the Metaverse, do you join us?

Nubia gives artists the possibility to create their own NFT by uploading the content to their own platform called Metaverse Experience. These NFT will also be available on the website. This platform has its own interactive token, which is used to upload artistic content in the form of NFT through a smart contract. Once the content is uploaded, it will generate benefit in the form of *Nubia Coins by the simple fact of being on the platform for the public, with the possibility that a hunter or collector can buy it.

Metaverse, is the new world that oscillates between the real and the digital that we all want to enter. Therefore, Nubia is the gateway to this unstoppable new phenomenon that will be present in the lives of many people in the years to come. This second iteration of the internet today is a real phenomenon.

With the entrance to this new world, Nubia maintains a great variety of Metaverses created by international and local artists in which the NFTs laid by the invited artists can be located. These Metaverses may also be purchased as a non-expendable token experience and the experiences are personalized by each of the invited artists. In the first moment there will be 10 inaugural artists and another 10 guest artists at the next Open Call.

On the other hand, among the Metaverses that will take place within this platform, there will be one elaborated by a very special guest, who will receive the name of Premium Metaverse, In it there will exist a clear interaction improved and it will be possible to see represented the works of greater impact of all the Metaverses of NUBIA. To access this Metaverse, the visitor, hunter or collector must possess at least one NFT raised in NUBIA, or contribute Nubia Coins.

Metaverse Experience will be accessible from mobile and computer from the Nubia website, also offers the possibility to be downloaded and executed as an application. In the case of Metaverse Experience Premium, it will be possible to interact with virtual reality glasses, in addition to the accessibility mentioned above.

*Nubia Coin is the official token of NUBIA, which is based on the Ethereum network.

The future is already here, and we are aware of it.
