French games, technology, and blockchain product developer Crypto Blockchain Industries (CBI), together with Crypto Meta (CM), have announced the initial launch of NFT Land pre-sales for Qtopia, the first LGBTQ+ metaverse.
This NFT pre-sale will allow for a select amount of Land to be offered to the public.
As interest in the metaverse continues to grow, people want to be a part of the next generation of online communities. Qtopia aims to be an online universe where members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies can interact, participate in events, and play games.
The Qtopia virtual world comprises four Islands: Qtopia City, Sapphire Island, Isla De Fuego, and Celebration Island. Within these four Islands, Qtopia has 44 districts with names significant to the LGBTQ community. There is a limited amount of Land that will ever be available in Qtopia.
During this first pre-sale, Qtopia will offer the opportunity for people to get in early before the world launches, to purchase houses and apartments in Qtopia City. The architecture in Qtopia City draws inspiration from eclectic metropolitan neighbourhoods in an urban setting.
Qtopia City has 26 different districts, and this pre-sale will focus on Townhouses, Small Apartments, and Medium Apartments in the Inclusion and Stonewall Districts.
Owning Land allows users to have a foothold in the metaverse. Users can customize their property by using pre-set tools to express themselves and their unique style.
A portion of the proceeds from the first pre-sale of Qtopia townhouse NFTs will go toward charity to assist in funding the Ali Forney Center’s Welcome Home initiative to purchase a permanent housing site for its TGNC clients.
Now in its 20th year, The Ali Forney Center’s mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youth from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently.
The launch of Qtopia is supported by partners including Playout Apparel, the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, Ali Forney Center, Hudson Pride Center, Joshua Zeke Thomas, Princess Janae Place, and Open Finance.
