Introduction of Rivermen
Rivermen takes the voxel version of “Along the River During Qingming Festival” as the creative theme, extracts dramatic and distinctive characters buildings from it, and is a metaverse platform built based on blockchain technology.
Vision of Rivermen
Rivermen hopes to become a new entrance to the social activities of the encrypted crowd, create more consumption scenarios for the encrypted crowd, and make the Metaverse platform have more possibilities. The team will also continue to provide community members with tools for content creation and ideological expression, assist members in their creativity, and allow everyone to participate in the display of personality and the construction of the community.
Rivermen’s encrypted artwork “The Window of Time and Space” is exhibited in The 1st Annual METAVERSE Art @VENICE, a parallel exhibition of Venice Art Fair, which has been exhibited at the Venice Armory from Apr.27th to Nov.27th of the month. The 1st Annual METAVERSE Art @VENICE is an academic research project of the University of Venice, the School of Architecture of Venice, Qingdao Wanmei Shengshi Technology, and Beijing Huahan International Hongliu. Co-initiated by Victoria LU, virtual singer Autumn and artist Liu Jiaying (CryptoZR). The “Window of Time and Space” exhibited by Rivermen this time is based on the long scroll of the top ten famous paintings in China “Along the River During the Qingming Festival”. The time in the real world is anchored, and there are sunrises and moonsets just like in reality. The characters inside and outside Bianliang City will also have different actions over time, men farming and women weaving, living and working in peace and contentment, working at sunrise and resting at sunset.
RiverEstate is a unique housing NFT asset in “Bianriverse”, each of which is designed and built by IRL Metaverse Architects. In addition, users can decorate, hold parties, etc. inside the RiverEstate, or place the 3D model on other metaverse platforms. In the future, Rivermen will also cooperate with well-known artists in the industry to create a co-branded extra-large RiverEstate every month.
