Reasons to Invest

Comic industry is rapidly growing, already generating revenues $1.095bn in the US and Canada alone in 2018
Led by a world team and advisors like Brittany Kaiser, the whistleblower in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Karen Hunter, Pulitzer prize winner and Sirius XM exec and David Chaum, the forefather of cryptography
Partners already include Comic Republic, the Open Index Protocol, and the Internet Foundation

Blockchain is confusing. We want to make it easy and exciting

We believe traditional media has become flat and unable to attract young audiences. Current blockbusters like Fortnite or Marvel Heroes are closed systems where the value created by players is locked into the publishers platform. If the game is discontinued or users move on to new games this value is lost and cannot be transferred to new platforms. This reduces the potential value of assets created in these closed systems. The same is true with other digital collectibles.

Using blockchain to improve storytelling

Metaiye Knights teaches users how and why to utilize blockchain in a compelling manner, in a saga based on the evolution of the decentralized web. Starting as a graphic novel, our story evolves into an open gaming platform that will ultimately culminate as a TV or film series -- it tells the story of the rise of a decentralized society and is published using decentralized money and collectibles. Users will be able to create assets that persist like personal avatars and digital collectibles, which they will be able to keep and use in other environments regardless of what happens with the platform, which will make them more valuable and collectible with time. It will use VR and AR to create new reading and gaming experiences and use blockchain to pioneer new distribution, payment and rewards models.

Metaiye Knights will allow fans to create avatars which they own and can use to earn or buy cameo appearances in the series - providing compelling new ways to engage and become a part of the saga. We use crypto rewards and other gamification tactics to build awareness and engagement, and distribute limited edition items through super fans and influencers. All trades can be tracked and executed automatically via smart contracts on the blockchain, resulting in less fraud. 

In 2018, the Comic industry generated revenues of $1.095bn in the US and Canada alone

The numbers are incredible: in North America in 2018, 84.37mn comics and graphic novels were sold, $100mn was generated from comic and graphic novel downloads and US game sales are projected to be $39bn for 2019. The gaming industry now generates over $130 billion in revenue globally each year. This is more than double the global movie (40.6B) and music industries (17.3B) combined. Free to play games like Fortnite which sell skins for $10-$20 each generated over $5 billion through trading and wagering these skins in just 2016. 

Core development is complete and key partnerships have been formed

As of now, we’re excited to announce that we have completed the pilot season of the saga in graphic novel format as well as completed 3D character development and core concepts for the gaming experience. Partnerships with key media companies have been secured - for graphic novel and motion comic development, with Comic Republic, for gaming development with  Arizona State University for gamification development. Key technology partners have also been secured - the Open Index Protocol for global blockchain publishing and payments collection and metaMe for a digital wallet, data and identity management.


Development of the blockchain system for publishing, payment, identity management, content consumption, and storage has been completed and will be ready to launch to a closed beta network of early adopters in November 2019, with a wider public release planned for the 2019 holidays.


Pilot Saga Graphic Novel Completed

3D Character Development is Done

Secured Industry Leading Partnerships

Additionally, we have the support of leading figures in the space including Britney Kaiser, whistle-blower of Cambridge Analytica and star of the Netflix documentary The Great Hack, David Chaum, the forefather of cryptography, and Karen Hunter, Pulitzer prize winner and Sirius XM exec. 


Metaiye Knights begins as a graphic novel and becomes something much more

The graphic novel will become a motion comic series that will be gamified. From this it will evolve into a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) where the saga will expand to play out across a mixed reality gaming platform integrating AR and VR into its experience and storytelling. Fans can create Metaiye Knight like avatars and will be eligible for rewards for “liberating” (onboarding) new users. 

A digital service built for an online age

We will distribute episodes through a digital wallet that will be provided with each account, enabling users to store avatars and other digital assets off the platform safely in their control. This will also enable users to earn crypto rewards that can be used to buy episodes of the series and other digital inventory. 

Blockchain will allow us to distribute and collect payment seamlessly

Digital episodes of the saga will be available to buy per episode or through subscriptions and will be available in both digital and physical still form. There will be limited edition episodes of the graphic novel as well as other collectible items on sale and auctioned off through the platform. The series will also make money from selling product placement and other marketing units to blockchains and decentralized products and services aligned with the narrative of the story. Our system allows for users to own their digital assets and for those items to exist outside of the game. These can be collected and kept or sold as digital collectibles. 

Metaiye Knights will be the first blockchain storytelling experience

Metaiye Knights is a saga about decentralisation being developed as an open, freemium edutainment media and gaming platform using blockchain technologies to give users permanent and persistent ownership of gaming items. This encourages portability and third-party development on the platform through APIs and SDKs which will add value to the platform as a whole. Not to mention that it’s entirely decentralized in its payment, reward and consumption experience enabling innovative, novel and efficient sales. We will also be creating exclusive, specialty items promoted by influencers and celebrities that will help enhance marketing campaigns and that also reward consistent game play and engagement. 

Metaiye Knights will be distributed with a unique crypto wallet that readers will be able to use to buy future editions of the saga but also to store digital items like their unique Metaiye Knight avatar. The wallet will enable fans to buy comics using local currencies as well as using compatible crypto currencies.  Additionally, fans will be able to earn crypto rewards for onboarding new users which they will in turn be able to use to buy future episodes of the story. Our blockchain enabled distribution and payment system will enable unique automated payment models enabling us to include subscriptions, lending, per read, per download pricing and various other novel monetisation and community building models.

We will become a blockbuster that leads a new kind of media

Our goal is to be a leader in the cultural representation of the decentralization movement as well as a cross platform entertainment. We will do this through the use of state-of-the-art technologies like AR, VR, AI, blockchain and cryptocurrencies to build unique compelling experiences. 

Metaiye Knights is being led by an eclectic, world class team of story tellers
