Our aim is to always enhance the fan experience and we will continue to update and expand our services while always maintaining a user-friendly and intuitive user interface (UI)."
Jang further said that the new NFT platform would later be developed to become a digital playground the artists and fans can interact in a way that has never been explored before. Fans and their favorite artists will be able to easily communicate and in a fun way too.
Finally, the Momentica platform will also offer other fandom experiences as LEVVELS will be adding more entertainment factors such as decorations and photo card collection. Dunamu and HYBE’s JV firm said that there are plans to expand the service areas to sports, games, and entertainment in addition to NFT art.
