Andy Blood, a former creative strategist at Facebook, has partnered up with CENNZnet once again to publish his new book Near Futures, Far-Fetched. In April, a blockchain-based community publishing event will release a collection of six short stories as NFTs with animated content.
Near Futures, Far-Fetched features stories that explore metaverse-related topics and possibilities. Carl Sagan and Tim Berners-Lee make surprise guest appearances in positions they never anticipated. These are stories of an accelerated culture.
“Collaborating with Liz Izmailova, Nicole Upchurch, and the Centrality.ai team helped me to create something unique, guaranteeing that each story housed inside the NFT is easily accessible to everyone interested.” — Andy Blood, author of Far-Fetched Near Futures.
“In 2022, while many have been rushing toward the metaverse, this author has spent their time focussing on the multiverse. In this world, many versions of you experience many versions of your life. We’re excited to host such a creative literary project on one of CENNZnet’s platforms,” said CENNZnet’s Chief Marketing Officer, Nicole Upchurch
Following their collaboration on the world’s first ‘book as NFT’ project in September, CENNZnet and Andy Blood have teamed up again on Near Futures, Far-Fetched. The technology world and the Web3 community responded well to their most recent release, Full Bleed.
