While “usefulness” has become one of the most common topics in NFT Andrew Fai has launched a platform that delivers audio-visual autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) art on the blockchain.
Anticipating strong market demand for therapeutic sound and visual NFTs, Fai founded tingling– the world’s first ASMR NFT production and Web3 market for artists and collectors.
Treatment of anxiety, depression and insomnia
According to Fai, the “Digital Renaissance” is here, and while he has no doubt that NFTs will continue to play an even more significant role in the future, he also believes more and more individuals will be looking for digital collectibles that can offer “an instant dose of relaxation and comfort.”
“As we enter the hectic digital world, ASMR will gain even more importance in treating the prevailing anxiety, depression and insomnia we have in our society. When was the last time you heard that digital content can have such a calming and therapeutic effect on the mind? Welcome to the world of ASMR, which brings you one step closer to relaxation, comfort and sleep, ”said Fai, explaining why therapeutic visual crypto art guided by sound is poised to become great in the years to come.
The size of the xtingles team is about 17 people, and according to the founders, most of them are “heavy consumers” of ASMR.
“We note that there is a big bottleneck in monetization for ASMR in terms of web2 for streaming sites. Most ASMR artists are forced to encourage continuous traffic by making content appealing to the newsfeed algorithm in hopes of being able to generate more pay per view, ”he added, explaining how he came up with the concept for xtingles.
The platform provides an alternative to this corrupt model, according to Fai, who, like many NFTs, sees it as a solution that will free artists – allowing them to focus on producing content that can be owned.
The rise of sound-guided visual crypto art
“Although Crypto Art is a subset of the larger NFT industry, we believe that the propensity for visual crypto art based on sound or sound will increase. “More attention will be paid to sounds, especially therapeutic sounds, which can help calm people’s emotions,” Fai concluded.
The founder revealed that xtingles already works with the 100 best ASMR artists worldwide.
“We believe it’s a matter of months when we start working with the top 10 ASMR artists to help them understand the potential of NFT and empower them to focus on creating unique audiovisual content that can be uniquely owned by their super fans and collectors,” he said. added.
The platform will allow artists to insert unlockable content so they can allow their NFTs to become access tokens.
“A lot needs to be improved and we will continue to do so,” Fai said, noting that the ASMR NFT market was recently updated and now lists all the different issue numbers and different bid prices.
Upgrade to Flow blockchain
Fai revealed three main reasons behind xtingles’ decision to build on Flow blockchain instead of Ethereum – environment, user-friendliness and an enthusiastic ecosystem.
“We knew that most members of the ASMR community were deeply concerned about the environmental problems caused by Proof of Work, so the Flow blockchain was an obvious choice as it is one of the greenest options available,” he explained.
Fai also pointed out that getting started with a Flow wallet (e.g. Blocto) literally takes about one minute and there is almost no learning curve to use.
The founder, who admitted he was very impressed with the amount of attention Dapper Labs offers to help ecosystem projects grow and succeed, found that several VCs asked xtingles to consider Solana – offering similar benefits as Flow.
“It will be a big decision for us to drastically change the infrastructure and start bridging our original Flow NFT assets to the Solana blockchain. The good news is that we can recycle the entire front-end code if we think about such a move, ”he said.
“Of course, the future is multiple, but we believe that choosing the right blockchain for issuing original assets is absolutely important,” Fai concluded.
