LightningWorks is an animated, interactive NFT comic book company with artists from Marvel, DC, and others.
LightningWorks is led by me, Geoff McCabe, the founder of Divi cryptocurrency, which did a successful ICO in 2017 and we now have the exclusive license with La Liga football club for our Divi Wallet.
Our CEO is Jordan Fiksenbaum, the former head of marketing for Cirque du Soleil, with over $5 billion in ticket sales under his leadership. I have hired the best people I can possibly find, who are passionate about creating the greatest media company in the Web3 space.
The genesis mint of LightningWorks of 7,777 portal NFTs has already sold out. The portals offer a new type of utility. If you own a portal, you become a distributor of the ecosystem’s NFTs and a percentage of NFT sales will be distributed to the portal holders via free and half-price NFT comics holders can distribute.
There’s a problem in the NFT space is the fact that you’re trying to build IP around this NFT set you’ve created, but you need a way to bring in millions of people to your ecosystem that want to buy this somehow.
EIGHT original comic books under production, and a dozen more scripts being written. LightningWorks intends to be the Web3 replacement for Marvel and DC, who have dropped the ball, ignoring digital comics, NFTs, and alienating their fans by forgetting about the importance of stories, great characters, and a persistent universe and lore.
Three years in development, with many more special features and integrations to come including: VR experiences, a collectible card game, partnerships, contests, and many surprises coming that you haven’t seen before in the NFT space.
