The projects are being built using Casimir: the low-code no-code constructor for Web3 portals.
Development of the web as a whole has seen a massive transition from being for engineers (developers) to being for layman end users. For example, Web2’s biggest development was when constructors came along to allow regular people to come and create using tools like WordPress. When we first looked at why the transition to Web3 is taking so long, we realized that there is no Web3 WordPress to drive Web3 development.
Because everything on Web3 is different and complex, it is too difficult — both for end users and developers — to get to grips with the technology Web3. This is where Casimir comes in: the tool lowers the entry barriers to get people building apps with a drag-and-drop feature.
Moreover, Casimir is built to be blockchain agnostic, meaning it is not an extension of DEIP; although it is a service in DEIP’s ecosystem to launch a Web3 business. i.e. Casimir right now is part of the DEIP ecosystem, but it won’t be in the future. It will be for building Web3 portals, Web3 products and applications without having to use the many and difficult instruments elsewhere.
What is a portal?
Portals are used to group or categorize assets and transactions. This structure of addressing (via categories) is helpful for Web3 users to find certain asset classes and for distributing royalties. Portals can be built for any intangible asset classes: you can make an NFT marketplace for any industry you like and have it managed by a decentralized autonomous organization.
Using Casimir you can build any portal as you see fit and, because Casimir is a modular constructor, you can build the business logic of your portal (Web3 product) from the ground up and customize it as you wish.
What portals have been built?
Following the launch of the mainnet, DEIP’s ecosystem is growing with Web3-creator economy projects in sphere’s such as:
- Phygital creations in the metaverse
- Design and architecture
- Technology patenting and assets
- Music and event ticketing
- Social media content creation
- Crowd investing platform
All of these projects are part of DEIP’s Web3 accelerator and have received funding to launch on DEIP’s mainnet. These projects will function on the DEIP protocol, using the DEIP token to pay for smart contracts and interactions.
Let’s take a look at five projects in DEIP’s ecosystem that are bringing Web3 and the creator economy together:
Arhead is a phygital platform for creators, businesses, and social networks. Phygital is used to describe anything that attempts to cross the divide between the physical and digital worlds. Arhead does this through its community driven platform for creating content, spaces, and events for companies that want to push their brand forward and engage with audiences in the metaverse.
Arhead’s platform creates metaverses for clients using:
- Physical content
- Digital spaces
- Creator community
The project introduces Arhead Content Items (ACIs) to store, show, and share content across the physical and digital world. Almost any 2D, 3D, or physical object can be converted into an ACI and Arhead provides technology to transform, manage, and monetize content in the platform and across different ecosystems.
Arhead currently has over 200 digital creators making art via their tech, while the project has held over 15 exhibitions worldwide, with an exhibition live in Dubai at the time of writing.
dearch.space is a virtual architecture and design platform built for creators and enthusiasts to discover the new industry, make money, and form a community. The founders vision is based on architecture and design having a drastic impact on quality of life and they want to bring this life-changing power to the virtual space.
dearch.space sees itself as a knowledge hub of NFT architecture and design for metaverses. The idea is to create a product that helps:
Architects and designers
- Make money
- Develop their career
Collectors and owners
- Discover projects
- Compare collections
- Meet like-minded people
- Share knowledge
- Entertain and participate in events
Today, 90% of new technologies do not make it to commercialization. This happens because the underlying tech assets are not liquid or simply under-utilized. At the same time, these technologies carry huge potential that needs to be unleashed. That’s why DeTech created a modular tech transfer platform powered by Web3.
DeTech’s platform opens up a unique global market of synthetic technology assets with high liquidity. It allows you to register and protect intellectual property, as well as showcase your tech globally. The platform enables collaboration between small and big players, including researchers, enterprises, and investors this comes with advanced matching and orchestration by DAO (decentralized autonomous organization)
The platform runs tech asset quality assessment algorithms for unbiased ranking via proof of reputation and investment potential. DeTech also offers novel DeFi instruments to:
- Collateralize intellectual property to get an early stage loan
- Tokenize assets as fractionalized NFTs to boost liquidity
- Farm the yields of the tokenized tech assets
DeTech is driving adoption of Web3 for innovators and the creator economy to boost liquidity of technology assets and ultimately to create new tech markets. To do so the company is building its network of tech transfer platforms on which anyone can launch.
Legal Music offers NFT ticketing and internal coins for concert organizers, artists, and music distributors to counter counterfeiting of goods and event tickets, in addition to music piracy. The project mints NFTs to act as proof of ownership for events and licenses to listen to music.
Legal Music sees a huge amount of copying and counterfeiting tickets on the market. Moreover, some artists can’t legally sell their merchandise at events. With new, post-covid work standards emerging: it’s a good time to explore new technologies for solving such problems.
The Legal Music team is made up of influencers and a leading musical media in Belarus. The team’s status gives them an opportunity to connect with all participants of the local musical scene. 17 active years of experience in and around music has given the team deep knowledge about the problems of musical artists.
Ninetales is reinventing the way content creators own and monetize their assets by giving creators full ownership over their content and audiences.
Content platforms as they currently exist decide what can be posted to which audiences and reserve the right to block or expel creators from their platforms. Social media nowadays captures the majority of the value to become influential giants while creators capture just a fraction of a section of the economy said to be worth $104B.
Ninetales aims to rethink the way the content creators own their work to put the creator at the center, not the platforms. Ninetales’ Web 3 platform will give creators full ownership over their assets and audiences by issuing NFTs for every piece of content and creating DAOs to unite followers from all platforms.
Ninetales will receive financing, help, and advice to launch its Web 3 solution for tokenization of creator economy assets from DEIP Creator Economy Accelerator.
Vedai is an education crowd investment platform. The main reason we’re creating Vedai is to enable more people to get access to high quality educational opportunities, which aligns with the Collective Intelligence Labs mission — helping realize the full potential of humanity with the help of collective intelligence technologies.
Crowd investing is a novel investment mechanism as it allows anyone, no matter what their background and financial opportunities are, to become an investor. It’s somewhat similar to crowdfunding, with a difference that here people get a financial return. Vedai enables companies and individuals to invest in the education of other people, specifically into their ISAs, and derive profit from the graduates’ future income.
Income Share Agreements (ISA) are a contract through which a student receives funding for study in exchange for a fixed percentage of their future income. An ISA provider pays for the course that the student takes, and in return the student contractually agrees to pay the provider a percentage of their salary for a set period of time in the future.
