- The NFTs were airdropped to WoW and WoW Galaxy holders earlier this month.
- On Aug 31, holders can begin transforming Capacitors by redeeming OnCyber virtual homes.
- This initiative is the foundation of taking the WoW community beyond PFPs.
World of Women (WoW) today revealed the utility of the WoW Capacitor NFTs. After the WoW community solved multiple clues in morse code on Twitter, Discord and even a Times Square billboard over the last few weeks, WoW holders received 10,000 Blue Capacitors while WoWG holders received 21,738 Green Capacitors as part of a surprise activation.
Starting from Aug 31, holders of the Capacitor NFTs can decide what to do with their digital assets. They can begin transforming them to redeem virtual homes on Web3 world-building engine and virtual reality platform, OnCyber, or save the NFT for the next season.
A Blue Capacitor will give holders access to the Origin Residence, while a Green Capacitor to the Nebula Quarters. Holders of both NFTs will also get a portal to link both places to each other. To transform the capacitors, holders will have to enter the WoWverse, a virtual world developed by the team behind World of Women.
The capacitors mark another step for WoW’s expansion into the metaverse. According to WoW, the utility of the Capacitor NFTs is crucial taking the WoW community beyond PFPs (profile pictures) to personally create and explore the nature of digital identities.
The NFTs secured in season one of Capacitors will also be a foundational component in future WoW and gameplay and have an important, ongoing role in building digital identity in the WoW universe. The WoWverse lore has expanded beyond the 10,000 NFT PFPs in the first collection, and now includes Assembly of Women, Nova Gaïa (a planet), time travel, and a currently unnamed villain.
“WoW has built a brand that allows people to represent themselves digitally, through PFPs”, said Shannon Snow, WoW COO. “As the first female-centric NFT brand to breakthrough to the mainstream, we couldn’t be more excited for the next iteration and expansion of the WoWverse, which begins the enablement of building and empowering your digital identity in new, innovative ways.”
Both the Origin Residence and the Nebula Quarters are designed by WoW CEO & Chief Creative Officer Yam Karkai, and created in partnership with OnCyber. In this partnership, Capacitor NFTs will be transformed into ERC 1155 tokens that can be accessed and displayed via users’ respective, unique OnCyber URLs.
Anyone who owns either an Origin Residence or Nebula Quarters can go to oncyber.io/create (while logged into the wallet that holds the Capacitor NFT) to start setting up their virtual home. After a space is set up, it will have its own dedicated URL which the user can customise.
There will be more Capacitor NFT drops to come, which will build upon the virtual home concept as each Capacitor will unlock new elements for users to create, customize and establish their digital identity.
OnCyber enables artists and collectors to display their digital collectibles in a fully immersive VR world for free and partnered with Rarible in February to sell NFTs in the metaverses.
