PRESS RELEASE. B.Duck, a global character IP, is entering Web3 with its first metaverse partnership with GigaSpace, working alongside MADworld to establish a Web3 blueprint for brands and IPs in the metaverse.
Created by the Hong Kong-listed company Semk Holdings International Limited (2250 HK), B.Duck joins the initiative “Project Spaceport” by acquiring land NFTs in the GigaSpace and will build experiences to bring joy, positivity, and fun to its 10+ million fans around the world.
Brought into the digital world by the NFT platform MADworld, B.Duck has already launched a 3D NFT collection. NFT owners can soon travel through GigaSpace and spread positivity to every corner of the virtual space.
Project Spaceport & Web3
Project Spaceport will be a cultural space district. Brands can create their own virtual space when the metaverse launches. B.Duck has permanently cemented its web3 presence on the “Map of the Galaxy” at GigaSpace.
MADworld, an NFT platform backed by Animoca brands, has also committed to building Project Spaceport in the GigaSpace. Learn more about B.Duck on the MADworld Medium page.
When the GigaSpace metaverse launches, B.Duck will help build the Museum of Brands, an innovative way for brands to showcase their products, vision, and mission. Another exciting feature is branded avatars — fans can travel in the GigaSpace with a B.Duck avatar.
“We’re motivated by inspiring our fans the love for travel and bringing them joy and positivity. The metaverse is how we will experience Web3, and GigaSpace allows us to create innovative experiences for our fans,” said Mr Eddie Hui, the founder of B.Duck.
“B.Duck entering Web3 is prominent in establishing a foundation for digital creatives for brands and IPs. We’re thrilled to be a part of the journey to offer tools for brands to express themselves in the metaverse,” said M, co-founder of GigaSpace.
