Casio, the renowned Japanese giant, has partnered with Polygon Labs, a leading Layer-2 scalability solution on the Ethereum blockchain network. Further, the collaboration will introduce a virtual G-SHOCK watch in a two-phase distribution system.
Discovering Casio G-SHOCK NFT
The famous Japanese brand Casio has announced its partnership with Polygon Labs for the latest virtual G-SHOCK watch. Polygon’s protocols will also back these virtual watches along with a series of community access passes. Moreover, NFT technology will secure these community access passes.
Starting September 23, enthusiasts and collectors will have the opportunity to secure one of the 15,000 NFT-based G-SHOCK creator passes. Also, the collector can get exclusive access to special Discord channels.
Furthermore, Casio is also open to design ideas and contributions for the G-SHOCK creator pass. Users can participate and vote for their favorite designs, and the winning idea will be minted into one of these NFT passes.
Casio’s NFT Distribution Plan
To begin, Casio has structured a two-phase distribution plan to ensure fairness and inclusivity. Also, Casio submitted a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office on August 22. Therefore, Casio might soon have a trademark for virtual domains such as virtual clothing, watches, and virtual goods storefronts.
In the initial phase, those registered for a CASIO ID on the official membership gate can get exclusive access to pre-distribution. The first phase will be from September 23-26. Following this phase, the second phase will be the public distribution phase from September 26-29.
What’s more, Takahashi Oh, Senior General Manager of Timepieces at Casio, has shared his views on the initiative. He said, “The co-creation of the Virtual G-Shock Project aims to increase the presence of the G-Shock brand in the virtual and Web3 worlds.”
