The Broy, an illustration artist from Surabaya known for being prolific and well-known, collaborated with an NFT company called Logo Factory Roti to initiate a generative NFT (Non-Fungible Token) project, The Roty Broi NFT’s. This profitable NFT project will be released to the public in stages, namely on January 20–25 and January 30–February 5 for pre-sale I and II, while the AMA (Ask Me Anything) will be held on January 27, 2022, at Konka Dominion, Surabaya.
AMA is a public release event and offline activation of The Roty Broi NFT’s in the form of 175 visual assets duplicated into 1047 collectable characters that can be accessed on the rotybroi.endhonesa.com website.
The Roty Broi NFT’s are an adaptation effort to the development of blockchain technology — a technology that is the basis for the development of the metaverse. In the future, this project will become an NFT platform for artists, creators, art collectives, and investors in Surabaya to be more competitive in the global market.
The works in The Roty Broi NFT’s project have apocalyptic nuances with the title “Melting Land”. Recently, this theme has been intensely discussed worldwide because environmental damage has become increasingly vulgar, and it seems as if the end of the world is just a piece of the hand. Moments that support the prerequisites of this apocalyptic world that The Roty Broi NFT’s tries to present through comical, anecdotal, satirical, and rich characters with nuances of intelligent humor.
“While putting together the ‘Melting Land’ universe with The Roty Broi team, I thought about the panic that occurred in the last days of mankind. I imagine, in the future, when the earth is getting worse, it won’t just be the ice or the poles that are melting, but the ground can also melt, and humans run in panic and nowhere,” said The Broy.
Suwar Kainde, the baker of The Roti Broy, said that this project is a giant leap for Surabaya’s creative industry, considering that the NFT project has not yet been worked on properly. The Roty Broi NFT Press Release, January 27, 2022, has a promising future because its development in the global market has not yet reached a high point.
“Seeing this potential, we tried to participate in presenting The Roty Broi characters along with an excellent road map. This project aims to raise funds for the production of Roty Broi The Movie.
The idea of this project originated from the realization that the condition of the earth is increasingly worrying, and it is not impossible if the prophecy of the destruction of the planet due to environmental damage is increasingly accurate in front of our eyes. We want to share this awareness by creating the universe ‘The Melting Land’, which is ready to melt in February 2022,” said Suwar.
