TORONTO, June 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blockchain Foundry Inc. (“BCF” or the “Company”) (CSE:BCFN), a leading North American blockchain development firm, is pleased to provide an update on its product strategy and roadmap.
The Company is currently exploring four distinct product paths, an approach which provides several benefits, including:
Focusing on revenue generating products that can be delivered without the need for additional funding;
Using a diversified approach to de-risk BCF’s product strategy and create synergies between products;
Building on a diverse array of blockchain protocols; selecting the platforms the Company works with on the basis of market acceptance and user adoption; and
Ensuring that BCF’s products can be used across multiple platforms.
In January 2022, the Company launched LastKnown, an NFT minting platform and marketplace for unique NFT drops from a curated group of artists and collections. The company has deployed three collections through the platform to date; Billion Buns, Babylon Misfits, and Mutant Bio-Morphans, all from a range of award winning artists. LastKnown is now in the process of developing its first platform-level drop which will include several new NFTs with unique utility benefits, gamification mechanics, staking, a new utility token and more. LastKnown will continue to expand its platform level features throughout 2022, including Metaverse enabled NFTs, NFT rentals and the integration of AI and Machine Learning to its marketplace, further differentiating LastKnown from its competitors.
In May 2022, the Company and its partner The Palmer Group, launched a beta version of Metacademy, a learn to earn educational platform focused on hands-on learning in a risk free environment. Metacademy currently features one course with many more in-development. The course teaches users how to set up a crypto wallet; how to mint, buy and sell NFTs; the differences between Web2 and Web3; how to interact with the metaverse and understand some of its underlying technologies; and how to collect and use decentralized data. Metacademy plans to offer additional courses covering tokenomics, DAOs, Decentralized Identity (SSI), Verifiable Credentials and more.
For the remainder of 2022, BCF will be focused on further developing LastKnown and Metacademy, while also bringing two other products to market: NFKeys and FoundeySwap.
NFKeys is a tokengating solution for projects and businesses to add utility and extended value to any NFT collection with zero code. NFKeys operates as a SaaS solution that simplifies the process of provisioning and redeeming NFT-based perks and benefits both in the real world, online and in the Metaverse. NFKeys allows users to utilize their NFTs as keys to unlocking benefits from a variety of brands without ever exposing their assets to fraud or theft. The NFKeys platform will integrate closely with LastKnown. NFKeys already has several projects lined up for pilot engagements in Q3 2022.
FoundrySwap is BCF’s proprietary solution to bridging tokens from Syscoin’s NEVM blockchain to its base UTXO blockchain without the need for any third party software.
Some of the Company’s anticipated roadmap items may be subject to regulatory review and the appropriate licensing being obtained by BCF. The regulatory environment for certain blockchain and cryptocurrency products is evolving quickly and the Company will assess its regulatory requirements associated with any products or services.
