Powerful use cases are the foundation of building a successful blockchain-based application or project. Discover how creators and developers across Asia are leveraging the Tezos ecosystem to drive innovation in NFTs, the arts, gaming, and managing data and credentials.

TwiTz

TwiTz: Tweets made eternal, to give content creators legitimacy.

Momentous tweets can quickly and easily be immortalized on the Tezos blockchain as an NFT with the TwiTz application. TwiTz is led by Indian developer Soumya Ghosh Dastidar, who received a Tezos India Fellowship to explore his passion for building on blockchain—including access to mentors and resources.

A minting request is triggered simply by replying to a tweet with a mention of @twitznft and the connected Twitter username, or a Tezos address or domain. Only the creator of a tweet can claim ownership of the NFT, but other users can ‘gift’ a minted tweet to its original author. Minted tweets are added to the Objkt.com marketplace.

“We are pretty excited for the community to mint some cool and memorable tweets for themselves and others!” the TwiTz team recently tweeted.

Game Geeks

Game Geeks: Creating a hub for decentralized and NFT gaming

Game Geeks aspires to become the home of blockchain gaming. Powered by the Tezos blockchain, Game Geeks provides a dynamic marketplace where users can play games, bet and win on the platform’s native tokens, acquire NFTs and in-game assets, and compete for recognition and prizes via a public leaderboard.

Founder Sanket Nighot said the platform will launch by June 30, 2022, starting with beta program registrants and a free loyalty NFT distribution. He developed Game Geeks with the support of a Tezos India Fellowship and said it was the ideal blockchain to build great Dapps on.

“The faster transaction rate, reduced gas fees, great supportive community, experts and mentors—these are some of the best things about Tezos blockchain,” Nighot said.

Salamax Cutie

Salamax Cutie: Empowering artists through NFT art minting and learning.

Salamax Cutie provides real-world support for Filipino performance artists to mint NFT art on the Tezos blockchain—it emerged from Titik Poetry, an art collective based in the Philippines that promotes poetry as a career and for social impact.

Jake Cezar, an artist and core member of Salamax Cutie, said the initiative grew organically after fellow artist Jarrett Cross helped him set up a Temple Wallet and sent him 1 tez to mint his artworks.

Eventually, Cezar paid the gesture forward by sharing a tez with another artist, who did the same—creating a movement called #1tezledtoanother that resulted in the whole collective of poets being onboarded on the Tezos blockchain.

“Basically, #1tezledtoanother is sending a tez to another artist to kickstart their journey into NFTs that hopefully, soon can help sustain their art and later on, can help others too,” Cezar said. Salamax Cutie also helps artists navigate NFT marketplaces and enhance their knowledge through AMAs, seminars, workshops, and events.

Dataverse

Dataverse: Private spaces that give metaverse users data sovereignty.

Dataverse is a self-described ‘Robin Hood’ for metaverse users: it frees people from the monopolies of traditional Internet companies through a secure, private folder system on Web3 where users can safeguard their sovereign identity, and organize and access their own data. Dataverse’s encrypted data spaces lets users manage cross-chain metaverse assets including NFTs, POAPs, user profiles, preferences, and web2 content.

Josephine Zhang—a partner at Ownership Labs, the China-based team behind Dataverse—said that since its launch, more than 60 million data streams have been created in Dataverse.

Zhang said it was important that Dataverse built in support for the Tezos ecosystem due to the blockchain’s popularity with artists, and to enable artists to put their multi-chain works in one place. “With Tezos actively helping us connect with people, we’ve onboarded a lot of artists as well as worked with NFT marketplaces,” she said.

Xanadu by MinistryXR

Xanadu by MinistryXR: Metaverse experiences for art and entertainment.

An idyllic virtual world awaits entertainers, artists, brands, and fans across Southeast Asia in the Xanadu metaverse. Dubbed an ’entertainment city’, Xanadu combines augmented and virtual reality, social media, online gaming, NFTs, and crypto in a lifelike digital environment where users can interact via an avatar—all accessible using a web browser.

Performers can deliver immersive virtual concerts; brands can run virtual town halls or retail stores; and artists can leverage the Tezos blockchain to create, display and sell NFT artworks in 360-degree walkthroughs within Xanadu. CEO Ivan Khoo said the metaverse “…gives people a chance to directly fund their favorite artists so that they can produce more cool stuff for everyone out there.”

NextID

NextID: Making it easy to issue secure certificates anchored to blockchain.

Singapore-based company NextID streamlines the effort of producing high-quality blockchain-based certificates. With clear benefits for sectors like academia, e-learning, government, and HR management, the company’s NextCertTM application issues tamper-free, verifiable credentials that can be used to authenticate documents, qualifications, awards, and artwork.

Through a Tezos Foundation grant, NextID is now working on integration with the Tezos blockchain. CEO Bill Claxton said, “We felt that supporting an internationally respected blockchain with fast confirmation time and low gas fees would be helpful to our customers.”

SweatyNFT

SweatyNFT: A gateway to generative art for artists without coding knowledge.

SweatyNFT is a no-code toolset that simplifies generative art NFT creation. Artists can generate up to 10,000 unique, randomly-generated artworks and launch their collections via marketplaces on multiple blockchains.

The project team received a Tezos Ecosystem Growth Grant to develop an integration with the Tezos blockchain, making NFT minting more accessible for its thriving art community.

Co-founder Sarisa Kojima, a Thai-Japanese NFT artist, made it her mission to empower less tech-savvy artists and support the Creator Economy by building SweatyNFT.

“As an individual artist and a person who is really into Tezos, I look forward to collaborating and growing the ecosystem as much as possible. I see a lot of room to fulfill this on the Tezos blockchain.”

TwiTz: ang mga Tweet ay ginagawang eternal, upang bigyan ng legitimacy ang mga content creators

Ang mga tanyag na tweet ay mabilis at madaling ma-immortalize sa Tezos blockchain bilang isang NFT gamit ang TwiTz application. Ang TwiTz ay pinangungunahan ng Indian developer na si Soumya Ghosh Dastidar, na siyang nakatanggap ng Tezos Asia Fellowship upang ma-explore niya ang kaniyang passion sa paglikha sa blockchain — kasama ang access sa mga mentors at resources.

Ang minting request ay maisasagawa sa pamamagitan lamang ng pag-reply sa tweet na may pag-mention sa @twitznft at sa nakakonektang Twitter username, o ang Tezos address o domain. Tanging ang creator ng tweet ang pwedeng mag-claim ng pagmamay-ari sa NFT, pero maaaring iregalo ng ibang users ang namint nang tweet sa orihinal nitong author. Ang namint nang tweets ay idadagdag sa Objkt.com marketplace.

“We are pretty excited for the community to mint some cool and memorable tweets for themselves and others!”(Kami ay excited na para sa community na mag-mint ng ilan sa mga kamangha-mangha at ‘di malilimutang tweets para sa kanilang sarli at sa iba!), ayon sa kamakailang tweet ng TwiTz team.

Game Geeks: Bumubuo ng hub para sa decentralized at NFT gaming

Minimithi ng Game Geeks na maging tahanan ng blockchain gaming. Ang Game Geeks, na pinagagana ng Tezos blockchain, ay nagbibigay ng isang dynamic marketplace kung saan ang users ay maaaring maglaro ng games, tumaya at manalo ng native tokens sa platform, magtaglay ng mga NFT at in-game assets, at makipaglaban para sa recognition at premyo sa pamamagitan ng public leaderboard.

Sabi ng Founder na si Sanket Nighot, ang platform ay ilulunsad sa June 30. 2022, na magsisimula sa beta program registrants at libreng loyalty NFT distribution. Dinivelop niya ang Game Geeks na may suporta mula sa Tezos India Fellowship at sabi pa niya na ito ang ideyal na blockchain sa paglikha ng isang magandang Dapp.

“The faster transaction rate, reduced gas fees, great supportive community, experts and mentors—these are some of the best things about Tezos blockchain,”(Ang mas mabilis na transaction rate, pinababang gas fees, at isang maayos na community, experts and mentors na buo ang suporta—ito ang ilan sa mga magagandang bagay tungkol sa Tezos blockchain) ani Nighot.

Salamax Cutie: Binibigyang kumpiyansa ang mga artists sa pamamagitan ng NFT art minting at learning

Ang Salamax Cutie ay nagbibigay ng real-world support para sa mga Pilipinong performance artists upang makapagmint ng NFT art sa Tezos blockchain—ito ay umusbong mula Titik Poetry, isang art collective na nakabase sa Pilipinas na pinopromote ang pagsulat ng tula bilang isang career at para sa social impact

Ayon kay Jake Cezar, isang artist at core member ng Salamax Cutie, ang inisyatibong ito ay lumago sa matapos siyang tulungan ng isang kapwa artist na si Jarret Cross na magset-up ng isang Temple Wallet at padalhan ng 1 tez upang mai-mint ang kanyang likhang sining.

Kalaunan, ibinalik ni Cezar ang kagandahang loob na ito sa pamamagitan ng pagbahagi niya ng isang tez sa isang panibagong artist, na ginawa rin ang parehong bagay—na siyang lumika sa isang movement na tinawag na #1tezledtoanother na nagresulta sa isang buong kolektibo ng mga manunula na pumasok na sa Tezos blockchain.

“Basically, #1tezledtoanother is sending a tez to another artist to kickstart their journey into NFTs that hopefully, soon can help sustain their art and later on, can help others too,”(Sa madaling salita, ang #1tezledtoanother ay ang pag-send ng isang tez sa isang artist upang masimulan niya ang kaniyang paglalakbay tungong NFT na nawa ay makatulong upang mapagpatuloy niya ang kanyang sining at kalaunan ay makapagbigay rin ng tulong sa kapwa niya artist), ani Cezar. Ang Salamax Cutie rin ay tumutulong sa mga artist na aralin ang pasikot-sikot ng mga  NFT marketplace at hasain ang kanilang kaalaman sa pamamagitan ng mga AMA, seminar, workshop at event.

Dataverse: mga Private space na nagbibigay sovereignty sa metaverse users

Tinuturing ng Dataverse ang kaniyang sarili bilang “Robin Hood” para sa metaverse users: pinapalaya nito ang mga tao mula sa mga monopolyo ng traditional internet companies sa pamamagitan ng isang ligtas na private folder system sa Web3 kung saan maaaring bantayan ng users ang kanilang sovereign identity, at i-organize at ma-access ang kanilang sariling data. Ang encrypted data spaces ng Dataverse ay nagbibigay-kakayahan sa mga users na i-manage ang cross-chain metaverse assets tulad ng NFTs, POAPs, user profiles, preferences at web2 content.

Ayon kay Josephine Zhang, partner sa Ownership Labs, isang China-based team na nasa likod ng Dataverse, simula noong launch nito, higit 60 milyong data streams na ang nalikha sa Dataverse

Sabi pa ni Zhang, mahalaga na ang Dataverse ay bumuo ng suporta para sa Tezos ecosystem dahil sa popularidad ng blockchain sa mga artist, at upang bigyang-kakayahan ang mga artist na ilagay ang kanilang multi-chain works sa isang lugar, “With Tezos actively helping us connect with people, we’ve onboarded a lot of artists as well as worked with NFT marketplaces,” (Ngayong aktibong tinutulungan tayo ng Tezos na kumonekta sa mga tao, nakapagpasok na tayo ng maraming mga artist , gayundin, nakapagtrabaho na rin tayo kasama ang mga NFT marketplace) sabi niya.

Xanadu by MinistryXR: Metaverse experiences para sa art at entertainment

Isang perpektong virtual world ang naghihintay sa mga entertainers, artists, brands, at fans sa iba’t ibang panig ng Southeast Asia sa Xanadu Metaverse. Pinagsama ng Xanadu, o kilala bilang ‘entertainement city’, ang augmented at virtual reality, social media, onlne gaming, mga NFT, at crypto sa isang lifelike digital environement kung saan ang users ay maaaring makipag-interact sa pamamagitan ng isang avatar—lahat ng ito ay accessible gamit ang web browser.

Sabi ng CEO na si Ivan Khoo, ang metaverse “.. ay nakakapagbigay sa tao ng tsansa na direktang mapondohan ang kanilang paboritong mga artist nang sa gayon ay makapag-produce pa ito ng mas kaaya-ayang mga bagay para sa mas marami pang mga tao.”

NextID: Pinapadali ang pag-issue ng secure certificates na nakaangkla sa blockchain

Pinadadali ng Singapore-based company na NextID ang pagsisikap na mag-produce ng mga high-quality certificate na nakabase sa blockcchain. Dahil sa tiyak na benepisyo para sa sector na tulad ng academia, e-learning, pamahalaan, at HR management, ang NextCerTM ng kompanya ay nag-isyu ng credentials na malayo sa anomang panghihimasok at kayang i-verify. Ang mga credentials na ito ay maaaring magamit para i-authenticate ang mga dokumento, kwalipikasyon, mga parangal at likhang sining.

Sa pamamagitan ng grant mula sa Tezos Foundation, tinatrabaho na ngayon ng NextID ang pagpasok sa TEzos blockchain. Ayon sa CEO na si Bill Claxton, “We felt that supporting an internationally respected blockchain with fast confirmation time and low gas fees would be helpful to our customers.” (Para sa amin, ang pagsuporta sa isang respetadong blockchain sa mundo na may mabilis na confirmation time at mababang gas fee ay mkatutulong sa among mga customers.)

“As an individual artist and a person who is really into Tezos, I look forward to collaborating and growing the ecosystem as much as possible. I see a lot of room to fulfill this on the Tezos blockchain.” (BIlang isang indibidwal na artist at isang tao na may interes sa Tezos, inaasahan ko ang pagtutulungan at paglago ng ecosystem hangga’t maaari. Nakakakita ako ng marami pang pagkakataon upang maisakatuparan ito sa Tezos blockchain)
