“Finding people to work with is tough. Finding the RIGHT people to work with is even tougher. In the age of social media, it’s still extremely difficult to connect and share creative energies with other people. The Squad Of Knights NFT Project is a long-term journey to solve this problem and put the focus back on real human-to-human connectivity, bringing together amazing industry partners from the music and technology community,” said Ramon “Illmind” Ibanga Jr. “Through our innovative NFT Utility partnership with Moonwalk, and our Metaverse partner Spatial, Squad of Knights is using NFTs and Web3 to connect like-minded aspiring and experienced producers, engineers, music artists, managers, and graphic designers together, both in the real world and in the metaverse.”
“We are incredibly excited to be working with Illmind and his team of music industry veterans to create the ultimate hub for music content creators, powered by the blockchain,” said Moonwalk Co-Founder, Greg Consiglio. “Squad of Knights is using NFTs and Web3 utility wallets to power engagement and creative collaboration, and a great showcase of how Moonwalk’s web3 platform can be used by brands and creatives to connect NFTs, rewards, and utility.”
“Spatial provides a virtual home for these creators to share 2D and 3D content with their communities, enabling engagement on a deeper level, " said Jacob Loewenstein, Head of Growth, Spatial. "Creators like Illmind are driving the internet of tomorrow and we’re humbled to be giving them a free and open platform to express themselves in more meaningful ways."
