Homer is the traditionally ascribed author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, two disconnected parts of a larger story, much of which has been lost to history.
Cryptoversal’s Inverted Homer NFT invites us to remember physical works that have degraded into oblivion, burned in accidental fires, or perished by the torches of history’s censors.
As you add smart-books to your crypto-library, Inverted Homer will stand in for all of history’s lost works that didn’t make it onto the blockchain in time to save them.
In the beginning, God created the Heavens, the Earth, and the Blockchain Angels.
These collectible Angels crafted by the Artist Known as Cryptoversal bestow their blessings along with airdropped smart-books.
Rare Blockchain Angels deliver a single volume, while 1-of-1 Golden Blockchain Angels deliver an entire collection or series to holders as individual books release.
The Gutenberg Bible:
First Blockchain Vulgate
In 1454, at a print shop in Mainz, Johannas Gutenberg assembled a Latin Vulgate Bible that introduced Europe to the revolutionary moveable-type printing press. Gutenberg’s press produced books so quickly and uniformly that some in his day suspected him of witchcraft.
The 15th Century book that revolutionized print publishing now heralds another revolutionary leap: the start of the Cryptopublishing Era.
On Christmas of 2021, the Artist Known as Cryptoversal partnered with WIP Publishing and PageDAO to mint the first Gutenberg Bible to the blockchain. A volume consisting of 1284 full-color pages was fully decentralized and placed into an in-market reader interface for the very first time.
Auction details coming soon.
1611 KJV Bible Collection
In 1604, King James I commissioned a new English language edition of the Christian Bible. The King James Version, or KJV, would go on to shape the English-speaking world and become the most widely printed book in history.
The Artist Known as Cryptoversal is pleased to release the first series of decentralized books drawn from scans of the 1611 first edition of this monumentally important volume.
Other projects have their “genesis drops,” but only this one has dropped an actual 400-year-old copy of Genesis.
“The Dwogleys are an ancient race that spread the initial seeds of life among the stars. As a child, I was taught that when the Dwogleys moved on, they left their imprint on the halo that surrounds and supports our entire Galaxy. Many believe the Dwogleys watch over us still, and that in a time of great need, their Messenger will deliver a new directive. The signs are clear. The Dwogley Messenger is among us now, and the Galaxy will soon be forever changed.”
The Dwogleys have crafted “Mad Messages” from eco-friendly Polygons. Each Message will unlock more story content and a new clue toward discovering the ultimate secret of the Dwogley Messenger.
This experimental work in the smart-book space collects chapters from The Mad Messenger by Greg R. Fishbone, one of the very first decentralized novels in literary history.
Cryptoversal spotlights milestone projects in the smart-book space, provides smart-book creators with educational resources, and advocates for eco-friendly formats and expansive author rights in the emerging cryptopublishing industry.
