SINGAPORE, June 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Gemie is delighted to announce that Hanjin Tan, award-winning musician & actor and producer, will join the Gemie metaverse team to help under-the-radar musicians reach a wider audience. The music NFT guru will leverage Gemie's existing entertainment-focused community to better connect fans and music lovers with new and upcoming artists through interactive metaverse experiences and digital assets.
Hanjin is the first artist in the Asian music industry to turn his music into NFTs. The Singaporean-Chinese producer's web3 music NFT collection sold within a minute of listing for over 500 BNBs, setting a new record for the Chinese-language music industry. As an NFT early adopter and web3 advocate, Hanjin's background and knowledge of the blockchain space makes him the perfect first addition to the Gemie roster.
Backed by crypto and entertainment industry investors and partners, years of entertainment and gaming experience, and with a deeply connected network, Gemie's team is well positioned to bridge traditional entertainment players into Web3. As a platform, Gemie will be a one-stop platform that equips artists and celebrities with the right tools, resources, and opportunities to realize their virtual ambitions by supporting their design process to bring their merchandise and experience concepts to life. Virtual wearables and decorative NFTs used in the Gemie metaverse also come with online and offline benefits which offer exclusive access to some of the biggest virtual concerts, meet-and-greets, and movie premieres. Gemie NFT holders will also benefit from perks including discounts for physical merchandise and priority in live event ticket sales.
Hanjin Tan has said "I am interested in projects that are convicted to develop web3.0 solutions for musicians. Musicians have been marginalized by the music industry for far too long. I believe that NFTs and web3.0 offer a viable solution. I am excited to explore with Gemie the possibility of web3.0 solutions in the metaverse for musicians. WAGMI."
John F., Co-founder of Gemie has said, "We hope that Gemie will become the home for celebrating Asian talent in our native countries and act as a bridge to share our singers, movies, and all forms of entertainment beyond the East. The Gemie metaverse aims to create worlds envisioned by top Asian talent to more closely connect creators and their fans which is why we're so enthusiastic about having Hanjin onboard and can't wait to share what we've been working on."
To make all of this a reality, Gemie is connecting with major players in the Asia entertainment landscape. According to the founding team, their demo room is currently available for public use with plans on track to build out their wider metaverse with various venues for virtual experiences. The co-founders have hinted across the project's social channels that the first batch of stars to onboard into the Gemie Metaverse will be announced soon.
