Mona said it will provide technical support to help Proof expand the virtual world space. The collaboration is aimed at creating community experiences such as live town halls, viewing parties and art reveals, the companies said. An early preview of the virtual experience was shown live on the “100 PROOF" podcast on Thursday.
“We will continue to provide unique experiences aimed at combining immersive art and technology to our holders,” Kevin Rose, co-founder and CEO of Proof, said in a statement. “The world Mona has created unlocks a new way for Moonbirds holders to hang out and enjoy digital art together.”
Earlier this month, Proof launched a new Moonbirds collection with a roster of 22 artists including Beeple, Summer Wagner and Terrell Jones. In January, Proof signed with United Talent Agency to continue to grow its brand beyond its Web3-native community.
