Web3 sci-fi NFT project Wanderers is looking to expand its IP in multiple ways

Wanderers, a dynamic sci-fi multimedia brand behind the Wanderers NFT collection, has raised $2 million in a seed round led by Animoca Brands and GameFi Ventures. 

The company will use these funds to build a video game in partnership with Blowfish Studios, create more immersive experiences, expand its IP, innovate in music NFTs, and build more for its community.  

Led by motion designer Nick Greenawalt, Wanderers is a Web3-native sci-fi project that has done $17.5 million in NFT trading volume and sold over $4.9 million worth of NFTs. The brand has released 4 NFT collections since 2021, each with its own story, animation, and soundscape making up the multiple facets of Wanderverse. 

The upcoming game, developed in partnership with Blowfish, is set to be launched in 2024. Besides providing financial support, Animoca and GameFi Ventures will also serve as tokenomics advisors. 

"As a fan of sci-fi movies growing up, it's incredible to now be building a multimedia universe full of characters and stories," said Nick Greenawalt, founder of Wanderers. "We're blurring the line between Web2 and Web3, growing from stories and JPEGs into films, music, and gaming. I'm really excited to see how the community reacts to all we have coming."

It's worth noting that storytelling is one of the core value propositions of Wanderers. The project's first short film, The Wanderers: Genesis, told the vivid backstory of characters in the Wanderers collection. For the second short film, the team hosted a casting call for holders to pitch why their characters should be in the film. Not only can holders view a story, but they can also participate by telling the story themselves. 

"Wanderers is a prime example of innovation in IP," said Yat Siu, the executive chairman and co-founder of Animoca Brands. "The brand succeeds thanks to its art, storytelling, and dedicated community of fans, and its NFTs are an excellent entry point into a universe of gaming, music, and entertainment."
