It was the frequency of these three little letters on my Twitter feed that initially caught my attention. “NFT”. I had no idea what it was or what it meant, but it was popping up everywhere. Within days, half of my feed was bowing down to this new technology or heralding it as the end of civilized society as we know it.

Between praise and criticism, I still couldn’t figure out exactly what that meant. My Twitter feed is made up almost entirely of game designers, journalists, and other people close to games, so I knew that must have some significance with games. Finding out exactly what that meant took me on an odyssey of promises, accusations, and far too much money.

NFTs have become a hot topic over the past few months, largely due to promises from many top game companies to incorporate them into their games and IPs in general – and the fan reaction to it. resulted. In order to understand exactly what they are, who they are for, and what picture they paint of the future of gaming, I did quite a bit of research and spoke to advocates on both sides of the crypto spectrum.

NFTs and their controversies

An NFT, or non-fungible token, is a unique, usually digital, item that cannot be replaced with anything else. This absence of substitution is ostensibly what gives them their value: each one is unique. NFTs are purchased with cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and are stored on a blockchain. They can be just about anything digital, but often take the form of art, music, videos, GIFs, or tweets.

Examples of games include ownership in virtual spaces, such as in the “user-generated world” of The sandbox, or the videos and art that Konami is selling as part of Castlevania’s 35th anniversary. Essentially, when you buy an NFT using cryptocurrency, you are buying a receipt indicating that you own a particular medium.

“An NFT is a receipt. That’s all it is,” game developer and reviewer Doc Burford told Digital Trends in an email interview. “[NFTs are] a receipt that says “you own this, but it is not legally enforceable, nor do you have the right to use it as you would your own property”.

Another significant issue with NFTs is their ecological impact. Blockchain technology generally uses energy to process transactions, which means that a simple NFT sale can affect the environment. This caused many artists to avoid technology altogether.

“As more mainstream businesses begin to implement blockchain technology, they are becoming more informed and aware of the dangers. … It will be interesting to see how better processes are developed to minimize the footprint carbon,” esports writer and content creator Crystal Mills told Digital Trends. She pointed out that “big business is also among the biggest culprits of climate change and shouldn’t be ignored.”

Ethereum has been promising for years that it will switch to the more environmentally friendly “proof-of-stake” security system in order to combat emissions, but that has yet to happen. The problem is that Ethereum is a public blockchain, which means the whole system has to “agree” to move to the existing system’s proof-of-stake. Otherwise, everything will fall apart, making it difficult to adopt far-reaching changes like an entirely new security system.

Actors as investors

So what does all of this have to do with gambling? A bit due to recent announcements from several different game developers and publishers. After seeing the apparent success of many early NFTs, game companies want to cash in on the trend. NFT ads have been especially common among old-guard developers like Square Enix and Konami.

Square Enix, which already has the cash cow that is Final Fantasy XIV, interested in creating NFT with “true value”. (“You can’t make NFTs that most people can afford and NFTs are ridiculously valuable,” Burford claims.) And Konami is selling a variety of videos and artwork from past Castlevania titles to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the franchise, although most fans have made it clear that they would much rather have a new title in the series than a collection of themed NFTs.

“As more and more mainstream businesses begin to implement blockchain technology, they are becoming more informed and aware of the dangers.”

Other companies have backed away from their plans to mix NFTs and games. After a big backlash from fans, Sega taken a step back of her intention to sue the NFTs, saying she wouldn’t use them if fans thought the company was only using them for profit. GSC Game World, the developer of the STALKER series, originally announced plans to allow players to purchase the ability to put themselves into the game as a non-playable character. After fans cried out, GSC Game World initially defended their plans, but ended up throw it all away by the window.

It’s clear that many gamers don’t want any of the NFTs imagined so far. What could the technology be used for in the future and what would players be interested in? According to a VentureBeat article from early last year, some crypto evangelists and investors believe that gamers will be willing to spend money on something in a game that they can resell or get investment value when they decide to stop playing the game.

For some, the goal is for players to be able to earn money alongside businesses within their “walled garden” ecosystems. “The idea of ​​earning something digitally in-game that immediately becomes an asset outside of the game is also really exciting,” Mills said. “We are only scratching the surface of [NFTs’] potential.” She says potentially “earning something of real value playing a video game is awesome.”

A common idea for NFTs in games is the purchase of assets such as weapons and character skins that could be transferred between games, even if a game closes its servers or is no longer supported. Another idea is a one-of-a-kind recording for games, which was described as an “emotional memory” in the VentureBeat article. At the end of their playthrough of a game, players can purchase an NFT that shows what they have done in the game and displays their unique path to completion. It would only be of value to the person who played the game.

Developers as involuntary parties

Gamers aren’t the only ones hesitant or hostile to the potential inclusion of NFTs in corporate gaming directories. Some game developers have warned gamers and companies about the difficulties of integrating blockchain technologies into their games.

“When you insert the motivation of profit into the game, you cancel out the fun, the horror, the compassion, the curiosity, whatever else a game has, and you say ‘you should be playing this because you can make money”. You do [it] a job,” Burford says of NFT investments and crypto in games. He describes himself as a developer who enjoys “creating emotional experiences” for players. On his staff Average page, he has written a series of articles about why he refuses to put crypto elements in his own titles.

Atari's theme park in The Sandbox.

He uses the example of arms and armor that some crypto enthusiasts have raised before. Even if you have something that belongs to you, like a particular virtual weapon or sword, his concern is that players will feel bad if that weapon’s power is reduced or otherwise changed during routine game balancing. Should players be able to keep the weapon they purchased in its original state? This can lead to major balance or gameplay issues down the road.

“Shackling yourself to a specific technology only limits your creativity.”

Burford also explains that the NFTs that can be transferred between games limit the type of games a developer can create. If players buy transferable items, like those same weapons and armor, as NFTs, they’ll expect to be able to bring those items into future games. If a studio plans to make different types of games or experiment with genres, NFTs and permanent asset ownership make it much more difficult due to player expectations. NFTs make player-centric design much more difficult.

Despite these statements, Mills believes there is real potential for NFTs and crypto in games. She suggested potential uses in MMOs in particular, and I can see how that would work. Some ideas I can think of off the top of my head are one-of-a-kind cosmetics, weapons, or even experiences. However, all of these assets come at a cost to developers; as a developer myself, thinking about spending my time and energy on something a single player will never see or use is unappealing.

Who is right ?

Even after doing all this research and analyzing these interviews, I still don’t know what to make of NFTs and crypto in games in general, which speaks to the incredibly mixed messaging surrounding the technology. Mills says that “we’re on the cusp of major innovation” with NFTs, but Burford insists that “locking yourself to a specific technology only limits your creativity”. Despite the controversy, the NFT machine seems to be moving full steam ahead, with more companies announcing plans to enter the space every month.

Ultimately, it is up to each gamer to do their research and consider the positives and negatives of potential NFT and blockchain integration in games. What is clear is that the current development, use and promotion of NFTs by companies is not working. If companies are able to find a way to create unique experiences or opportunities that are only accessible through NFTs, players may slowly get used to their presence, like what happened with DLC.

However, if companies continue to ignore their fans in the name of profit or “use NFT options in ways that will not be welcomed”, in Mills’ words, integration may go much slower or not happen at all. . Gamers are making sure their voices are heard and some companies are listening. It remains to be seen how games and non-fungible tokens will interact over the next few months and years, but one thing is certain: the acronym “NFT” seems to be stuck on my Twitter feed at the moment.

With the opening of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Schaefer Portrait Challenge exhibit running through March 19, the Center has announced the winner of the Jury’s Choice Award for the 2022 Schaefer Portrait Challenge.

Kaua’i artist Sally French has received a $15,000 cash prize for her portrait titled The Gilded Fly. This award is sponsored by Carolyn Schaefer and is one of the largest cash prizes in the United States for portraiture, recognizing the talent and essential role artists play in our lives. The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free admission.

For this year’s Schaefer Portrait Challenge, jurors Carl Jennings, Codie King and Jan Sato selected 48 portraits from 166 submissions from five islands. Their selection includes works of classical and contemporary styles in painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media. Artists were encouraged to have a direct relationship with their subject to include live sessions, relying less on photography. Computer and digital art, photography and other reproduction media were not accepted.

Sally French is a well-known, award-winning artist who lives and works in Kaua’i. She was born in Stockton, California. She was a featured artist in a 2008 Schaefer Gallery exhibition Wunderlust – The Keeper’s Tale, was a 2012 SPC Jury Member and was a 2015 SPC Selected Artist. Her works are exhibited in renowned museums such as the Museum Honolulu Contemporary, the Honolulu Academy of the Arts, and the Hawaii State Endowment for Culture and the Arts Public Places Collection. His works have been exhibited in group exhibitions across the United States, including New York, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles and others.

“It is with the deepest gratitude to Carolyn Schaefer and the founders of this portrait challenge, for providing such a substantial prize,” notes French. “We artists create in a vacuum, alone in our studios, not knowing if our efforts connect to anyone. When an artist receives a monetary reward, it likely returns to the studio in the form of equipment or materials, boosting not only that artist’s self-esteem, but also the amount of time an artist can spend in the studio. The more an artist can focus on the process of discovery, the more the art can develop, so these awards become an important part of the cultural growth that the community as a whole benefits from.

This self-portrait, which she titled The Gilded Fly, addresses the challenges presented to her in 2021, beginning with a global pandemic and continuing more recently with a breast cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy and a double mastectomy.

The winning artwork is a mixed media on panel, 66″h x 44″w consisting of atomized acrylic, wax crayon, sanded resin, gold leaf, and a wandering fly that has become part of the artwork. work as a “golden fly” when it was created by the artist and thus possibly become part of the title of the work.

Commenting on French’s award-winning work, Schaefer Gallery Director Neida Bangerter commented, “Sally has masterfully infused this work conceptually, letting her imagination and writing skills create a storybook self-portrait. . The result and depth of his struggle suddenly float in a life raft and are doing well. Few artists are able to articulate their experience and deliver the depth of their process of dealing with a life-changing situation. I also like that it really takes us away from the traditionalist smell of what portraiture should look like. This is its strength – making us think about what we see.

NEWARK, Calif., September 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Lucid group, which sets new standards with its advanced luxury electric vehicles, today announced that the company will repurchase all of its outstanding public warrants (the “public warrants”) to purchase Class A common shares of the company that were issued under the warrant agreement dated July 29, 2020 by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company as agent for warrants (as assigned to and borne by the Company and Equiniti Trust Company, as transfer agent and agent for warrants), within the framework of the units sold within the framework of the initial public offering of the Company (the “IPO”), for a repurchase price of $ 0.01 by Public subscription warrant (the “Redemption Price”) which remain in circulation at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to October 8, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”).

“We are pleased to announce the cashless redemption of our public warrants,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid Group. “This is an important step in streamlining our capital structure to eliminate outstanding public mandates as we see growing confidence in Lucid’s groundbreaking in-house electric vehicle technology, which will soon hit the market in Lucid Air. Lucid has elected in part to require the cashless exercise of public warrants to allow warrant holders, including our retail investors, to hold shares of Lucid without cash exercise. We also expect that this action will reduce the dilution of these public warrants. “

The public warrants are listed on the Nasdaq under the symbol “LCIDW”. Each public warrant entitles its holder to purchase one class A common share for a purchase price of $ 11.50 per share, subject to adjustments (the “Strike Price”). Under the Warrants Agreement, Lucid has the right to redeem all outstanding public warrants if the last sale price of the Class A common shares is at least $ 18.00 per share on each of the twenty trading days during any thirty trading day period ending on the third trading day preceding the date on which a redemption notice is given. Lucid has instructed the Warrant Agent to deliver a redemption notice to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Public Warrants. Class A common share purchase warrants that were issued under the private placement warrant agreement simultaneously with the IPO and still held by the original holders thereof or their authorized assignees are not subject to this redemption notice.

The public warrants will cease trading on the Nasdaq at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Redemption Date. All public warrants that have not been exercised at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Redemption Date will be delisted, void and no longer exercisable, and their holders will have no rights with respect to such public warrants, except to receive the redemption price or as otherwise described in the Redemption Notice for Holders who hold their Public Warrants in “street name.”

In addition, in accordance with the warrant agreement, the board of directors of Lucid has elected to require that upon delivery of the redemption notice, all public warrants be exercised only on a “free basis.” numerary “. As a result, holders can no longer exercise the public warrants and receive Class A common shares in exchange for a cash payment of the shares. $ 11.50 by exercise price of the warrants. Instead, a holder exercising a public warrant will be deemed to pay the $ 11.50 by the exercise price of the warrant by the delivery of 0.5542 of a class A ordinary share (the fraction determined as described below) that this holder would have been entitled to receive during the exercise in cash of a public warrant. Therefore, under the cash-free exercise of the public warrants, warrant holders who have exercised warrants will receive 0.4458 Class A common shares for each public warrant surrendered for the purpose of warrants. exercise.

The number of Class A common shares that each warrant holder who exercises their right will receive under the cashless exercise (instead of paying the $ 11.50 by cash exercise price of the public warrants) has been calculated in accordance with the terms of the warrants agreement and is equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of shares underlying the warrants. public warrants held by this holder of warrants, multiplied by the difference between $ 20,751, the last average selling price of the Class A common shares for the ten trading days ending on September 2, 2021, the third trading day preceding the date of the redemption notice (the “fair market value”) and $ 11.50, by (y) the fair market value. If a holder of public warrants, after taking into account all of that holder’s public warrants exercised at one time, would be entitled to receive a fraction of interest in a Class A common share, the number of The shares that the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the whole number of shares down.

A new art festival is making its way to Orange County next year. The Beacon will be a biennial, county-wide public art festival taking place in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough in the summer of 2022.

The Beacon aims to become a major destination for art festivals and generate spending at restaurants, shops and other local county services from visitors attending the festival.

Katie Murray is the Orange County Arts Commission director. She recently presented the plans for the Beacon to the Orange County Commissioners Council Meeting.

Murray said the festival has three goals: showcase artwork in addition to financially support the artists, support the struggling downtown community during the summer months, and provide a free festival accessible to all. community members.

“Of course I tend to think that the arts can solve almost any problem,” Murray said. “I’ve been thinking for a long time what event can we create that will really put Orange County on the map. [This festival could] Pulls us a bit out of the shadows, at least creatively, that we seem to fall into and in terms of being in the Triangle with Durham and Raleigh, and something to become a new signature event for our community.

Murray said there were 14 community partners involved in the festival, including the Orange County Arts Commission, the Tri-Towns, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership and the Orange County Economic Development.

The festival focuses on three-dimensional art like sculpture, the art of installation and the art of projection. Murray said there will be a national call for artists to be judged by a panel of experts. Those accepted will receive an allowance for travel and installation costs.

Outdoor locations will be matched with artists according to their artistic medium. During the festival, the public can vote for their favorite works of art through an online portal. At the end of the festival, cash prizes will be awarded to the jury vote winners as well as the audience vote winner.

Murray said the Beacon is modeled after ArtPrize, a biennial festival in Grand Rapids that attracts 500,000 attendees and an estimated economic impact of $ 33 million.

“It’s obviously a goal, but I think if we can start our first year off on the right foot, I can see this event end up having the same impact as ArtPrize,” said Murray.

Orange County Commissioners Chair Renee Price said she believes the festival will not only have a creative impact for the county, but also a financial impact.

“It will have a ripple effect and I think it will pay off,” Price said. “It will bring happiness and joy, which we will need after this pandemic. We’re going to try to get everyone together, so it’s going to be very, very good.

The festival’s budget should be finalized by November and the call for artists will begin in December. The festival will start on July 15, 2022 and run until August 15, 2022.

Not only the hundreds of “characters” and the vendors in period costumes, but also many guests are having fun as well. You have the option to dress for the current century or wear your best version of Elizabethan-era fashion.

Entertainment can be racy. There are the Naughty Minstrels and a slew of humoristic acts appropriate to the time. There are fire eaters, sword swallowers, Sea Dogs specializing in maritime music and gaiety, Shakespeare auditions, a horse show, jousting tournaments, and more.
