THE FIRST SPACE SUNRISE 2022 WILL BE LAUNCHED IN REAL-TIME FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 2 December 2021 – Digital Entertainment Asset Pte. Ltd (DEA), a global GameFi company and Bascule Inc., led by Representative Director Masayoshi Boku, have teamed up to launch ‘The First Space Sunrise’, an exclusive limited edition NFT (Non-fungible token) which features real-time photos from the International Space Station (ISS).
The collaboration is the first-of-its-kind and marks the dawn of a new era in the rapidly growing NFT space.
The partnership brings together Bascule’s leading expertise in the space and entertainment business by tapping into “THE SPACE FRONTIER STUDIO KIBO (Hope)’ which has been broadcasting an interactive live stream from the ISS since September 2021 as part of the J-SPARC joint project with The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
Commenting on the launch, DEA CSO Kozo Yamada said “The narrative is one of the most important factors for a collectible NFT. I believe that NFTs will grow in global importance in 2022. With this NFT, collectors will get to witness a ‘non-fungible’ moment together by collecting the first images of the year from space. As someone who loves both space and NFTs this collection is an absolute must have.”
“THE FIRST SPACE SUNRISE 2022” will be the world’s first NFT project to publish a collection of NFTs from space. This launch adds another first for the partnership after the duo hosted a countdown party on the ISS KIBO studio giving viewers a real-time view of the earth as they counted down into 2021. In 2022, the public will have an opportunity to go a step further and claim some of the world’s first NFTs to be published from space.
In total, 2022 NFT collections will be issued to mark the start of the new year. The photos will be the very first captured after midnight from 00:00 UTC/GMT, 1 January 2022 from the ISS, which orbits the earth every 90 minutes. 20.22% of proceeds will be donated to the International Astronomical Project for the purchase of a next generation ultra-large telescope to support space development projects around the world.
OVERVIEW OF THE NFTS
Two types of NFTs will be published on the ‘The First Space Sunrise 2022′ website. Titled ‘The First Space Sunrise 2022’ and ‘Astro-Dogu 2022’ each series will have a limited run of only 2,022 unique images that will be sequentially dropped in real-time for purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis.
