Virtual Photography is the fastest growing art form in the world the most successful free advertisement tool in history and "THE BRIDGE" to NFT AAA game mass adoption.
There's always been a stigma that shadows over this incredible art form and that is ownership of the image taken within the games photomode's (photomode's "try" to replicate IRL cameras in game).
Currently any gamer can buy any game and stream it through a social media platform and has the chance of earning an income from this, but in the past Virtual Photographers (which we add, are the most dedicated of all gamers) have been requested by game developers to remove a photo from sale on etsy, ebay ect, while also asking the gamer's to issue DMCA take down notices to companies, who where selling Virtual Photographer's in game photos on their site without the gamer or developers permission.
As you can imagine this is extremely confusing to the average Virtual Photographer over who owns what, a huge problem for devs with allowing sales of their IP content is traceability of each sale, that is now easily managed.
Still many VP's have watermarks on the images, claim theft when the image is used by another individual or company, VP has always been known as "my art, my work".
Its time to end this confusion and get some real ground rules established in the industry.
Our goal is to get a NFT (Non Fungible Token) platform built that is solely dedicated to the Art form.
A platform that mimics the NFT Art scene in terms of royalties, but with a significant difference.
As we said Virtual Photography is Digital Art and its dedicated platform should mimic the NFT art scene but the major differences being the platform will reach out to game developers and build partnership's to gain copyright access for the platforms users. In these partnerships, unique smart contracts will be created for each game developer.
As a user uploads an image to be minted they will be required to put the game name and developer who built it, while the image is uploading the system will search a database and make sure the two match, the system will choose the correct developers smart contract for that specific developer, while also linking the users wallet to the contract.
Every gamer can have a collaboration smart contract with developers of their choice.
When the image sells a first time the developer will get a 10% /or agreed royalty.
If the image sells a second, third time ect, the developer will split the royalty fee with the user.
This is extremely fair, and would allow the gamer/ fan to support the developers like never before while also allowing every gamer another way to at least have a chance of making something from what they love.
As said this is the most successful free advertisement tool in history and we believe it is an untapped market with extremely high possibility to take NFT's directly to the AAA console gamer, without a doubt there are individuals who are willing to buy their favourite VP's art knowing it will support them. we already have individuals in the community starting patreon pages, so the urge to earn from this art form is there.
▪ Finally gives you the VP ownership of your art.
▪ This let's the market/community decide who should be noticed by developers.
▪ Your art gets shared on dev pages more often as its in their best interest to get a sale.
▪ Just imagine YOUR income from YOUR art could support YOUR favourite developer.
We will go so as to say, that this design if used correctly by the developer's and they send those royalty fee payments direct to their own DAO ( Decentralized autonomous organization ) and compound that free income they will get very nice payouts throughout the year.
Imagine what these developers can do with that spare income..
▪ Build better systems for us to game on
▪ Lower game prices
▪ Take on more staff
▪ Increase their staffs wages
▪ Give away more free content
▪ Buy a bigger yacht (we had to put that in there)
But the potential for all of the above is there.
We understand a lot of people do VP as just a hobby and that's great and we will still always support you, but please understand we've only ever wanted the absolute best for all of you, and we feel this is it, this is the best plan for the community member who wants to try and make something from their art, someone who wants to support their favourite developer.
The TPM platform wiil be the place gamers go to gain access to the rights to sell their VP content, TPM will do all the work, provide platform, build dev databases, build unique smart contracts for each dev, handle all VP customers so the devs dont have to, thats the service we will provide, we feel this will pull more dev partnerships to TPM so gaining more games for you to sell shots from.
All sales will be done using a stablecoin ie DAI, USDC Etc.
We choose stablecoins so its easier for the user to understand what they have received after each sale, that and we will have a partner were you can purchase digital copies of games using the stablecoins you own directly through the TPM site, these will be game codes for now but we hope in the future you will be able to buy NFT backed games so you can sell them later down the line.
We teamed up with Somnium Space to hold the Virtual Reality Virtual Photography competition on twitter, where we were the 1st people to tokenise and exhibit 10 Virtual Photographers ingame shots in a gallery within the virtual reality Blockchain based world.
We know Digital Art on Blockchain is the future and VP will eventually take that route, we're so proud to be the 1st to push the art form in that direction and proud to have worked with such a cool team in the metaverse scene.
