Entertainment Group MM2 Asia plans to launch Metaviva, a new NFT marketplace for licensed digital entertainment tokens and collectibles focused on popular entertainment and media content from the region.

Content producers from the region will also be invited to promote NFTs in the marketplace.

Metaviva will serve as a hub for consumers to buy, trade, sell and store digital tokens and will be interoperable across Polygon, Ethereum and other blockchains. The market launch date will be announced in the coming weeks.

Melvin Ang, founder and CEO of MM2 Asia, said he wanted to create a platform that enables content producers to build their brands and community audience base by creating offerings that were previously only available to industry insiders. “Metaviva NFT owners may receive early or exclusive access to limited-edition collectibles, and invitations to real-world events such as movie premieres and celebrity meet and greets,” he added. interactive marketing I reached out to MM2 Asia for comment.

He recently collaborated with charitable organization NFT4HOPE to release a set of NFTs that show his face. Through this group, the organization aims to raise funds for flood victims in Malaysia.
