They provide step-by-step instructions on all aspects of NFT creation including what types of content to use, where to source content, adding artistic design, writing the NFT’s description, adding optional unlockable content and setting an optional ongoing royalty.
They also show how to mint NFTs and teach the process of how to get your NFTs on the blockchain. They’ll go through the whole process including creating a collection, and the different options such as setting a price or starting an auction to sell NFTs. Also, what people need to bid on and purchase NFTs, and how to avoid getting scammed, including getting a primer on blockchain, particularly the Ethereum cryptocurrency and “gas” fees. Readers will also be shown step-by-step how to create, secure and fund your own cryptocurrency wallet, where you’ll store your NFTs and cryptocurrency.
His vision can be found in a recent interview with Dinis Guarda.
Early in the interview, QuHarrison introduced the metaverse as a spatial web that has digital domains to create the mixed reality of immersive perspectives.
"Just consider it as the evolution of the internet as we are going beyond phones and tablets and into glasses and contact lenses. Things that we would need to transpose information readily in front of us in ways that we just hadn't thought of. So, there is new spatial awareness that is existing in the metaverse.", he explained.
The two experts discussed if the metaverse is what the world experiences in the present form of gaming. QuHarrisson shared his views taking the example of Roblox:
"I don't think video games are the best version of the metaverse to show people because they are not that different from what existed before. So, what's awesome about Roblox is we can all go into Roblox, and we can have experiences. It is a little by nature as far as the audience and the demographics, but it is all simultaneous, we are all in the world, and we can change, manipulate, and participate in that experience together.
The video games 10-15 years ago could not handle all this, the technology wasn't there, and even the processing power needed to do that just wasn't there. So, I look at all that and think that we are all at the precipice."
Explaining the true nature of his vision of the metaverse, he added:
“VR is not the final destination. We want to go beyond it, into XR, which is an immersive reality, and where things are going to get way closer to the futuristic idea and domain of a metaverse.”
“We have these instances where people are taking physical jobs and tasks, bringing them into the metaverse, creating virtual economies because taking the commodities that would traditionally be only available to physical existence saying they have value, people are confirming they have value by buying these scarce assets, and this creates a hyperloop because it happens so fast where there is value exchanged and people do have these things tied to their identity. The actions that are taking place today will probably only get amplified when the tools and platforms are a little bit more ubiquitous and it is a lot easier to manifest these new identities and exchange these virtual goods”.
