The Birth of Wear to Earn (W2E) Fashion
If you’ve jumped into the Axie Infinity bandwagon then you’re already familiar with the concept of P2E or Play to Earn games. Players are rewarded with fungible tokens and digital currency the more they play and the higher levels they reach. The idea of earning while doing an enjoyable activity was a big hit not only to players but to investors alike.
The Fashion industry took note of this success and is moving to conquer the metaverse with Wear to Earn Fashion.
AKINGS W2E NFT Collection
Joining the movement is the luxury streetwear brand, AKINGS. If you’ve seen stacked slim-fit jeans in the streets of New York, more often than not, you can attribute the popularity to them. The brand’s mission has always been to provide versatile, stylish, and innovative streetwear for its customers that makes them feel like a king.
Now taking the deep dive into the metaverse, AKINGS Fashion NFT collection, is not just a digital wearable. It rewards holders every time they wear their AKINGS fit in virtual worlds, in online games, and eventually in real life. In other words, each time you dress your digital avatar, the brand will send you an airdrop of virtual currency.
Why Wear to Earn Fashion?
“It all came down to giving back to our community and the people who continually come out and support the brand beyond the predictable discount or upsell. This NFT is an answer to the question we always ask ourselves— How do we bring more value to our customers?” Bryan Leon, COO of AKINGS said.
With EPIK PRIME as a gaming partner, the AKINGS NFT collection is set to have integrations in multiple metaverses and games – offering power-ups and maps to cardholders.
“The rise of the Metaverse and Web 3.0 are set to disrupt multiple sectors including the billion-dollar global fashion industry,” as Cointelegraph says (Wolfson, 2021).
Your outfit – in the real world and the online space – is more valuable than you think.
