Addressing the new frontier in metaverse design through decentralized AI governance.

ZUG, Switzerland, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dacoco, the driving force behind Alien Worlds, the #1 played metaverse on DappRadar, announces at Web Summit in Lisbon a collaboration with revered Science Fiction author Kevin J. Anderson (Star Wars, Dune, Saga of the Seven Suns). Together, they introduce AI-Driven Tokenized Story-Telling, also known as the “Large Lore Model,” a pioneering concept that merges the power of AI with the vibrant creativity of the global community, all governed through decentralized on-chain mechanisms. With over 9 billion plays in Alien Worlds, this feature will be the largest AI system governed by DAOs at scale.

This revolutionary storytelling approach is designed to augment and scale the new and rich lore created by the co-author of the Dune Prequel series through community contributions worldwide. Through advanced AI tools, the decentralized community can leverage this strong lore foundation to build collaborative Alien Worlds games, media, and more.

Saro McKenna, co-founder of Alien Worlds, remarks, “Given the recent Hollywood writers’ strike, we’re navigating a crucial juncture when it comes to AI and media. We aim to safeguard the integrity of creators while unlocking the vast potential AI offers. By governing our AI models transparently via on-chain communities, we’re uniquely positioned to govern this intersection of technology and storytelling.”

She adds, “With Kevin J. Anderson’s masterful storytelling as our foundation, the community has a dual opportunity – they can appreciate and integrate the literary contributions of giants like Anderson, who wrote fan favorites like Star Wars: Young Jedi Knights, and simultaneously harness the formidable power of AI, along with the imaginative contributions of participants across the globe.”

Within the vast expanse of Alien Worlds, six planetary DAOs vie for Trilium tokens. Trilium will play a pivotal role in governance decisions and the management of AI-assisted content for an ever growing metaverse enjoyed by countless participants .

Though AI offers unmatched efficiency, its integration also raises concerns about potential misuse. Dacoco’s use of blockchain technology will explore how communities can address these challenges, facilitating proper authenticity, transparency, and attribution of training data. In this way, Alien Worlds is launching the world’s largest decentralized AI management system. 

Kevin Rose, Chief Marketing Officer of Dacoco, added, “The next great franchise will be built by a community, not a corporation. When launched, our AI-driven ‘Large Lore Model’ will only be trained on community-approved lore, whether in games, art, video, or other media. Dacoco’s battle-tested DAO technology will serve as the foundation to support the community as it embarks on this journey. Over time, we will see a community entirely responsible for maintaining the canon of the Alien Worlds metaverse.”

This initiative is the first step in evaluating the need for decentralized governance systems to oversee AI systems, an important topic of debate as AI becomes more integrated into people’s everyday lives. Dacoco’s goal is to ensure AI systems remain accountable, auditable, and true to their intended purpose.

“In today’s interconnected world, storytelling has the power to unite global communities. AI tools can act as the essential bridge that ensures we are weaving a consistent and cohesive universe without requiring direct collaboration between every member of that community. As we meld the time-honored craft of storytelling with the innovative capabilities of AI, we’re not just telling stories; we’re creating universes.” – Kevin J. Anderson

Kevin J. Anderson, a luminary in the science-fiction domain with over 24 million books in print, boasts iconic works, including the expanded Dune series, Saga of Seven Suns, and adaptations for franchises like Star Wars and The X-Files.

Saro McKenna added, “Harking back to the open letter to pause AI development signed by Elon Musk and others, regulation, oversight, and transparency, were all strong themes that need to be addressed for AI to be developed responsibility. Dacoco believes that decentralized governance can play a role here, however, the efforts to mitigate the risks posed by AI through decentralization reveal that the touch points between the two are imperfect, leaving much room for government or collective regulation.

Published

artrade’s-new-rwa-feature-‘fragments’:-launching-with-a-picasso

Investing in world-class art like buying tokens on Solana

PARIS, May 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Artrade is excited to announce the upcoming launch of its new feature “Fragments”: a Real World Asset (RWA) physical masterpiece linked to a token on Solana. 

 

 

After the presale, it will be accessible in one click like any other tokens on a DEX.

Making real world art investment easier than ever before.

The artworks 

We are only considering important artists for our new “Fragments” feature. Rapidly increasing and reliable valuations convinced us this is the right choice. We’ve been sourcing and analyzing serious offers on Monet, Picasso, Warhol and Banksy among others.

This typically expensive and elite investment opportunity is now accessible to you through trading fractions of it with Artrade.

Our first inaugural piece for this feature:

A drawing by Pablo Picasso.

Artrade is proud to showcase this intimate piece of art by the most famous signature in the world, valued at $200,000.

The artwork will be revealed at the NFC conference in Lisbon, and the presale opened at this occasion.

After months of sourcing and researching the art market, we’re proud to come to the public with a piece by such an iconic artist.

Our vision

Stake.com

Our ultimate vision is not to resell our artworks on the traditional market for a profit, but rather to create real-time quotations of our artwork’s tokens. Enhancing token value for holders over time.

Though if the artwork is resold, holders will have the option for a buyback (convert to USDC) of their tokens.

According to Artrade’s founder Paul Weibel: “On-chain real world assets will finally democratize the investment in historical masterpieces of art.”

What you get as a Fragment investor:

  • $ATR token airdrop
  • Whitelist priority on the next token offering
  • Be a part of the exclusive Fragment Collector community
  • Access to exclusive networking events and IRL showcases of the artwork

Why invest in an Art Real World Asset token?

Liquidity: contrary to a NFT or a physical artwork, a token is completely liquid and can be traded anytime.

Stake.com

Value: the value of your token is really associated to the value of the artwork on the market. It’s a token with a real utility and value in the world.

Investment: the valuation of masterpieces has been reliable, strong and consistent for hundreds of years. The market knows that.

With Artrade’s RWA Token, this value will be displayed in real-time and opened to a dynamic Web3 native secondary market.

About Artrade 

Artrade is a French JEI (young innovative R&D company) created and funded in 2021 through an ICO (initial coin offering). Since then, the $ATR token has reached an ATH of $140m valuation with a pool of thousands of holders.

Stake.com

The main and already running marketplace is built around Art real world assets by contemporary artists. Counting around 4,000 monthly users, Artrade is gaining more and more credibility and traction in the space.

Stay tuned for more updates and get ready to invest in world-class art with Artrade’s innovative “Fragments” feature.

Artrade, trade art.
