Masks are Non Fungible Tokens, or "NFTs", meaning they are scarce and unique digital assets for which there is no copy or substitute and where your ownership is recorded on the blockchain in perpetuity.

Some of the advantages of investing in NFTs include: Anyone can invest in NFTs. Investing in tokenized assets is accessible to everyone. Asset ownership that is tokenized into an NFT can more easily and efficiently be transferred among people anywhere in the world.

Fans of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” will soon be able to buy limited-edition digital collectibles of the gigantic, disturbing Baby character along with masks from characters that have appeared in all six seasons of the show.

On Wednesday, Fox Entertainment and its Blockchain Creative Labs launched The MaskVerse (maskverse.com), an NFT marketplace and community for the hit singing competition series.

It’s the latest bid by an entertainment company to catch the hype wave for nonfungible tokens (NFTs), which verify ownership of unique pieces of digital content using distributed blockchain tech. Also Wednesday, ViacomCBS set a spring 2022 launch for its own NFT platform, joining other companies including Warner Bros., DC and Lionsgate that have moved into the nonfungible-token space.

Masked: A Historic NFT Collection of African Art, Poetry and Culture

There are a wide variety of masks in Africa. The existence of African masks has been traced as far back as the Stone Age, with traditional masks worn during celebrations, rituals, festivities, and ceremonies of social and religious importance. African masks most often represent spirits, animals, ancestors, entities, mythological heroes, and/or moral values. Their form and function may cover the face, the whole head, or even the entire body. The size of a mask, its shape, colours, and materials used tell a symbolic story among different African tribes.

Many African communities practice a tradition of performances called masquerades. These communal mask ceremonies, or dances, provide entertainment and music while defining social roles with religious meaning. The masks that are worn to perform in full costume are considered works of art. Charles Mbata, Founder and CEO of Jungle Color, is a digital fine art collector and curator who grew up observing masquerade performances as a child in Nigeria. His knowledge and understanding of the blockchain’s immutable technology became a source of inspiration.

Motivated by a desire to preserve the history and heritage of indigenous African art, Mbata’s ambition became the visionary catalyst for one of the most culturally significant African art projects to ever be minted on the blockchain. Together in collaboration with Chuma Anagbado, an award-winning multidisciplinary designer, artist, and entrepreneur, 15 talented poets were assembled. Masked is a remarkable historical collection of spoken word NFTs; steeped in the illustrious visual art and cultures of Africa’s past and present.
