“We are currently working on the front end design and making sure there is a good user experience, bringing great visual design and functionality,” Soni said.
Soni currently works on various other projects, including Tezotopia, one of the leading play-to-earn games on the Tezos blockchain.
“The goal is to build our following and interest. I’m bringing memes daily on Twitter that are informative, relatable, and engaging. We want others to share their news memes with us.” Vasquez said.
“Eventually, users will be able to mint and list their own NFT news memes and this gives users from around the globe a new space to share what’s happening in their part of the world.”
Memecast will have all the elements of an NFT marketplace, but it will also create a more immersive experience for users. There will be tools available that will allow them to like and dislike, and eventually generate their own memes. There are future plans to bring in more interactive tools that will add a “social-media” feel to it.
The project is backed by Gif.Games and the team of advisors includes Gif.Games’ Anshit Bhardwaj, Joab Garza, and Manuel Benevides, Global Crypto Alliance.
“We’re excited to begin changing how news is told and giving people a new way to create and tell a story. It will be as easy as snapping a pic, placing a headline over it, minting and listing. You’ll have made a news meme and shared news,” Garza-Guerrero said.
The team plans to hold regular Twitter Spaces called “Memecast & Mimosas” every Sunday, time to be announced. Follow the team on Twitter for news and updates.
