Custom NFT Marketplace Creaticles Bolsters Advisory Board Ahead of Multi-Chain Expansion
PRESS RELEASE. Boston, 10 February 2022 – Creaticles, the world’s first NFT Requests Marketplace, has today announced new signature additions to its Advisory Board, Jeff Jiho Zirlin, Co-Founder of Axie Infinity; Sébastien Borget, COO and Co-founder of Sandbox; Joe Zhou – Co-Founder and CEO of FirstBlood; Juergen Hoebarth, seasoned blockchain consultant and Founder of NFT.Art; and Kenny Li – MIT Sloan graduate and cofounder of Manta Network. The new Advisors join Creaticles as the platform gears up for its multi-chain expansion in the coming weeks.
Creaticles is the world’s first NFT platform that matches buyers looking for bespoke NFT art to its roster of verified global artists. The company was founded by former Ericsson Engineer and current MBA Candidate at MIT Trevor Keith (CTO), and blockchain veteran Jonathan Chen (Head of Operations), with the overarching mission to accelerate mainstream NFT adoption and broaden accessibility into the space.
The platform allows anyone to source custom NFTs through ‘Creaticles contests’, using a Request for Proposal (RFP) model, in which users submit an idea request to the platform’s roster of verified artists. Upon receiving submissions, users can select their preferred NFT and winning artists can be remunerated in ETH, and in the future, CRE8 – Creaticles’ native utility token. All NFTs purchased on the platform will be transferable to all secondary marketplaces, opening the door for artists to compound their earnings with future sales of their art work.
Creaticles has experienced rapid growth since its testnet launch in August 2021, and was selected as one of eight of the most promising projects in CoinList’s Seed batch for Fall 2021, out of a field of over 500 crypto projects. Following its mainnet launch in November 2021, the company raised $3.8 million USD in IDO on SushiSwap (MISO) – investment that will be used for team expansion and marketing activities. Creaticles recently announced a strategic partnership with Esports platform FirstBlood to facilitate NFT rewards for Esports tournaments, and the company has also successfully conducted NFT competitions for Axie Infinity, Harmony, MakerDAO, Polygon, Mask Network, and Pangolin.
CRE8, Creaticles’ native utility token, has multiple utilities across payment for art and premium placement, governance voting, rewards for commission collected, as well as staking. CRE8 is currently listed on Sushiswap, Gate.io and MEXC, with more exchange listings earmarked for Q2 and Q3 2022.
Jonathan Chen, Creaticles Head of Operations said: “Along with the growth of the Creator Economy, we’ve seen the NFT space as a whole expand rapidly in recent months. At Creaticles, we are looking to fast-track the mainstream adoption of NFTs and to be recognized as the platform of choice for global artists to enter the blockchain space. Our roster of verified artists is continuing to grow and we are poised to launch several key partnerships that will give these artists the opportunity to showcase their talent and unlock new revenue streams. We are extremely pleased to add Kenny, Joe, Juergen, Sébastien and Jeff’s technical acumen and their invaluable experience to our Advisory Board as part of our comprehensive growth strategy.”
Joe Zhou said: “Creaticles is a unique NFT project that truly gives the power back to creators, independent from secondary market sale. If you look at Looksrare, sorare and Opensea, most of the NFTs remain untouched from their initial listing. Many artists in fact won’t be able to even get their initial gas expenses back for minting their collections. The next wave of NFT adoption will need platforms like Creaticles and this is why we are bullish with its mission.”
Juergen Hoebarth said: “It seems like everyday another household name brand announces their entry into the NFT market, powering a groundswell of momentum that can’t be stopped. Creaticles is poised to assertively take a market leading position in the burgeoning NFT space, offering a genuine ‘first of its kind’ offering that will resonate with artists, crypto platforms and new market entrants. I’m thrilled to join them on this journey!”
Kenny Li said: “The Creaticles team have identified a major gap in the market, and have developed an exciting value proposition that will drive mainstream adoption of NFTs and encourage more NFTs to be created. Every crypto project now requires high quality art as a means of celebrating company milestones or rewarding community members through contests – which have exploded in popularity. This means Creaticles have entered the market at the perfect time. I’m delighted to join the company’s Advisory Board and I look forward to contributing to the company’s success trajectory over the coming months.”
