What is Terra Virtua Kolect (TVK)? Your ultimate guide
How is the cryptocurrency TVK linked to NFTs? Our guide to Terra Virtua Kolect will explain…
Terra Virtua was designed to take non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to the next level by introducing an immersive experience where owners can interact with their collectables.
The NFT ecosystem can be found on multiple platforms, including a marketplace website along with applications for PC, mobile, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) environments.
The marketplace allows users to trade and buy NFTs, which also feature partnerships that provide Terra Virtua with a unique edge.
There are now exclusive collectables, including figures from the Netflix programmes Lost In Space and Pacific Rim: The Black. The prices for these range from $19.99 to $299.99. There is even animated Beyoncé artwork from the Australian artist LA Migiotto going for $10,000.
Along with partnerships, Terra Virtua has created its own digital characters called vFlects. They can be bought and sold on the marketplace, and vary in their rarity and design.
The system was developed to create social, gaming and creative experiences, and users can download an application to interact with the NFTs, which is available on PC and mobile. The app has an art gallery to display your collection as well as a Fancave and Terra Dome to show off other collectables. Through these means, you can see the NFTs in 3D and via VR.
There are also gamification aspects to Terra Virtua that involve using Terra Virtua Kolect (TVK), its own token. But what is Terra Virtua Kolect?
Read on to have Terra Virtua Kolect explained…
What is TVK coin?
The introduction of TVK coin was intended to reduce the transaction fees when buying collectables, but there are also more uses to the token. The first is Terra Virtua Prestige, which you can become a member of by staking TVK. The benefits of being a member include access to exclusive items, announcements through the town hall and monthly random drops of NFTS and TVK coins.
However, to start getting access to these features you must be holding at least 5,000 TVK. At its current price of $0.22 according to CoinMarketCap, that’s $1,100 worth of TVK.
There are also quests, competitions and leader boards that have TVK rewards. This gamification layer was added to increase access to rewards using an interactive method, in line with their mission objective.
Gary Bracey is the CEO of Terra Virtua and has experience in this field. He has been working in the games industry for more than 35 years. He worked at companies including Ocean Software and Digimask, before taking the leap into blockchain technology.
The final use of the TVK token is to create: by staking the coin, users gain access to tools that allow them to create their own 2D and 3D NFTs. These collectables can then be used across the display platforms, such as the art gallery and Terra Dome.
Terra Virtua Kolect coin launched on 16 December 2020 at $0.06 and its price history since then has been volatile. It stayed around the $0.10 mark in the first two months of 2021 and then hit its all-time high of $1.15 on 15 March. It fell back down to the $0.50 mark during May. Since then, the price of Terra Virtua Kolect has decreased even more. As of 14 December 2021, it was at $0.22.
Is Terra Virtua Kolect worth investing in?
WalletInvestor says Terra Virtua Kolect coin is a “bad long-term investment” and predicts a gradual downward trend for the TVK token. But TVK was designed for NFT users rather than cryptocurrency traders. Only time will tell whether TVK users are more interested in collecting exclusive collectibles and other NFT-related perks, or investing in the TVK token itself.
The reward-based system Prestige gives users four tiers to choose from – bronze, silver, gold and platinum – which are ranked by how much you stake. Some of these perks do come with a hefty bill: to gain platinum tier and unlock the personalised vFlect, users must stake 125,000 TVK. The pricing does, however, start at 5,000 TVK for the bronze tier, for users to see if they enjoy the rewards.
In a Medium article in September, Bracey revealed there are more movie partnerships coming, along with new ventures into the sports sector. Looking to the future, he added: “We are completely revamping our marketplace, adding an amazing Collections feature and redeveloping our immersive spaces (Fancave, etc) so they will all be device-agnostic and run at a good frame rate on any screen.”
There is a limited supply of 1.2 billion Terra Virtua Kolect coins in circulation.
TVK is used to buy NFTs on the Terra Virtua marketplace. By staking TVK, users can gain access to exclusive collectables, as well as town hall meetings with the CEO. Investing in TVK also unlocks creative tools, making it possible for individuals to create their own NFTs.
Remember, never invest more than you can afford to lose.
In April, Terra Virtua partnered with CasperLabs to add verified authentication of the NFTs that they own. CasperLabs said: “Casper’s secure and decentralised approach adds a layer of trust for consumers.”
As ever, do not forget to do your own research into the security of Terra Virtua’s NFTs before making a buying decision.
