Body shaming and eating disorders kill one person every 52 minutes, and the people who made BopoVerse are making a big change in how NFTs and the Metaverse might deal with these problems.
BopoVerse was started by three brothers, Idan D, Sean D, and Matan D. It is a new and groundbreaking Web3 worldwide entertainment brand and community that is working to treat the second biggest mental health problem in the world with the help of the Metaverse and NFTs.
The goal of the project is to teach millions of people around the world about body positivity, self-love, and empowerment through 7,777 limited edition NFTs and other cultural assets held as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. BopoVerse’s cultural assets will help spread the word about body positivity and give people around the world confidence in a safe, open space where they are #FreeToBeTheirBestSelves.
“We recognize that hundreds of millions of people are affected by harmful social media content, cyberbullying, and body shaming because of the wrong perception of what is deemed to be the ‘perfect body,’” says Idan D. “Ultimately, this impacts mental health in a negative way, sometimes causing eating disorders that lead to one death every 52 minutes. This alarming statistic is one of the factors that led us to create BopoVerse, a place to be loved, not judged.”
To address this worldwide problem, the first-of-its-kind NFT collection will feature 7,777 digital art women warriors inspired by PLUS PPL, one of the world’s largest digital empowerment and body positivity campaigns with over 120 million brand exposures. In just the last two years, BopoVerse has helped tens of thousands of women feel beautiful, loved, and important. It also gives them a safe space and a digital stage that has even saved lives.
“Our own lives as obese PPL were tough, and always got bullied from kindergarten to school and high school,” says Sean D.
“Despite this, we always believed that no matter what, we are enough and worthy and with this agenda we grew up. Then, after years as eCommerce entrepreneurs, we felt the pain of PPL like us who got clear disregard on the part of brands and the traditional fashion world we decided to make a change.”
Idan D, Sean D, and Matan D started BopoVerse because they had always been picked on and cyberbullied because of their weight. The project is an innovative metaverse community built on the Ethereum Blockchain that uses digital art and technology to help everyone feel more powerful and positive about their bodies.
