Zilliqa, the high-performance, high-security, and low-fee Layer-1 blockchain protocol, along with and Metapolis, an extended-reality (XR) metaverse-as-a-service platform (MaaS) powered by Zilliqa, are launching a new initiative to support for creators, focuses on sustainable fashion. Three finalists will win grants of up to $15K and be given the opportunity to create a fashion line for Metapolis avatars. The winner will become the official e-commerce merchandise partner for Zilliqa.
The selected winner will collaborate alongside Norah Sallam, Creative Director of Zilliqa, to design and manufacture merchandise as an official partner. The winner will also benefit from worldwide publicity that Zilliqa brings. For instances, the official brand will be worn by the core team during events and podcasts. Additionally, the three finalists will also design a fashion line for avatars within Metapolis and earn a percentage from the sales. Both funding and support offered are intended to encourage creators to leverage their marketing and business needs.
Applications are now open for emerging brands, indie labels, established companies, or fashion creators with access to suppliers also aligned to sustainability. Zilliqa wants to work with brands that include at least one of the following techniques in their work: upcycling, recycling, ethical fashion, slow fashion, or zero waste.
The initiative, which comes at the perfect time following World Environment Day on June 5th, advances Zilliqa’s mission to build a carbon-neutral ecosystem. In terms of carbon emissions, Zilliqa is already approximately 10,000x less than other blockchains. Zilliqa will prioritize brands that support ethical consumerism, responsible sourcing, and sustainable fashion, as they work to become carbon negative in 2022.
“Digital fashion is a booming industry and as more talent looks at entering the metaverse and Web3 space, we want to support their initiative in building a sustainable and inclusive world across both physical and digital environments,” says Sandra Helou, Head of Metaverse and NFTs at Zilliqa. “We look forward to partnering with talented creators that share the same sustainability values as Zilliqa and Metapolis, and helping them enter their next stages of growth.”
