Creators — Get Verified!
We’re excited to share a new way for creators and artists to benefit and get involved in Marble (and soon Meme.com). Let us introduce Verified Creators.
– autograph Marble cards to enhance their powers
– get 20% royalties
As a verified creator, you can enhance a Marble card by adding your autograph. Getting a card autographed is a kind of “blessing” from the person who created the content that a Marble card links to. Any card owner can reach out to a creator who is verified on Marble.Cards and ask for a signature, which will permanently enhance the card in the following ways:
– The card gets an edition number in the verified creator’s collection
– An autograph from the creator is added to the card
– A badge is added to the card’s properties
– The card gets access to new gameplay
And this is just the start. Later, there will be more enhancements, such as chances of getting visual upgrades and other rare attributes. Note that adding an autograph to a card is just a symbolic gesture and no IP rights are changed.
How to get a card autographed
Card owners can ask to get a card autographed by placing a bid to the creator behind the content of a marbled URL. Requests can only be sent to verified creators that can be selected from a list on the verification page. If a creator is not yet verified, card collectors can advise them to sign up here.
Content creators are always in control of what gets autographed. They can choose to accept all bids or only a selected few to keep their autographed cards exclusive.
Whenever an autographed card perform well in games such as the Marble Arena, both the card owner and the verified creator will get rewarded. The creator also gets 20% ownership in case the card is sold in the future. (Royalties to verified creators are currently limited to sales on Marble.cards until it’s also supported by marketplaces like OpenSea).
A new way to engage with fans
We see Verified Creators as an excellent way for artists and creators to engage with fans. It enables fans to “collect” parts of a creator’s Internet presence. With Verified, creators can encourage fans to marble and collect their online art, music, videos, social media or blog posts.
For Marble card collectors, Verified Creators is a way to enhance cards and to show off their authenticity by getting the content creator’s blessing. As with all Marble cards, the NFT is a frame to a web link and the collector claims no rights whatsoever to the content that the card links to.
The story so far
We have already seen a lot of creators use Marble cards to promote their art, and we hope the new Verified feature will make this even more useful. Here are a few early pieces we would like to highlight:
Become a Verified Creator
To be able to boost cards, creators should register as a Verified on Marble.Cards. All you have to do is sign up here to get on the list. Creators will be onboarded in batches, so make sure to get involved early! Being a Verified Creator means you agree to act truthfully and that you will only autograph web content that you have created or helped create.
Today, more than 220,000 Marble cards have been created and our community is growing fast. We’d love to get more input from creators, so if you have ideas about how to use verified cards to promote your art or create perks for your fans, please let us know!
