Terra Virtua has reduced its energy usage in minting NFTs by over 99% in a recent move from the Ethereum blockchain to Polygon. The change is part of a concerted effort to move to a more environmentally sustainable NFT ecosystem.
“We’re extremely excited to be working with Terra Virtua, and at the forefront of their next wave as they revamp to a more sustainable model in the switch from Ethereum to Polygon,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO/Publisher. “It is especially rewarding working with Gary and the team at Terra Virtua, as they are comic fans themselves! It was wonderful to be able to speak with new partners who are genuinely invested in our characters, stories, and creators. Working together, we’ve built in participation for the creators whose work we are presenting in this new format. This is a great opportunity for the Dynamite Universe – both characters and creators – to be brought to a brand-new audience, as well as bring new collectibles to our existing fan base! The ability to bring our characters and creators to a new and growing audience helps grow the overall comics industry and community.”
Gary Bracey, Terra Virtua CEO said, “We are privileged to partner with Dynamite Comics for this exciting venture. Being massive comic fans ourselves, this is a perfect match as we respect not only their democratic attitude towards the creative talent but also the incredible diversity of published content from groundbreaking series like The Boys through to the iconic Vampirella, Red Sonja, and much more. We cannot wait for fans to see the innovative NFTs we are collaborating on!”
Fans and collectors can stay tuned to Dynamite and Terra Virtua for further updates on this partnership and the next NFT releases.
