NOBORDER.z FZE (CEO: RIO TAKESHI KUBO) held a successful fan meeting event, “Shinnosuke Tachibana Metaverse Fan Meeting”, at a special venue in the “XANA” metaverse developed by the company. The event was for overseas audiences, featuring one of Japan’s most popular voice actors, Shinnosuke Tachibana; he is one of Japan’s leading voice actors. A device was used to enclose Tachibana’s voice recorded on the day of the event in the NFT event ticket at a later date; the NFT was upgraded to include the voice, to the delight of those who purchased the ticket.
This NFT card has the utility of a ticket for live streaming of the fan meeting and entry to the meetup venue in the metaverse. In addition, after the event, Shinnosuke Tachibana himself recorded his live voice on the spot, and the purchaser’s NFT ticket was upgraded to an NFT ticket with voice. There were eight patterns of live voices, making this the first voice NFT by a leading Japanese voice actor and a very premium experience for fans.
The limited-sale NFT ticket holders could only view the live streaming. It was simultaneously related to a large monitor in the special XANA Metaverse world, where Tachibana could watch fans in the Metaverse dance, comment, and interact with other fan avatars in real-time, creating the event a great success.
