Lost Worlds, a location-based NFT platform, recently announced LOST.NYC, an immersive event scheduled for April 11-14 in New York during NFT.NYC, the leading conference for the NFT community. The groundbreaking event aims to transform NFTs from a desktop experience into a real-world adventure, similar to the popular Pokémon Go game, by introducing location-based NFT minting.

Expanding NFT Utility Through Location-Based Experiences

Geofencing NFTs to physical locations provides innovative ways to interact with digital assets. Token holders can access gated merchandise, real-world events, exclusive NFT drops, and more. For NFT.NYC, Lost Worlds has partnered with major names in the industry to showcase the potential of this technology.

Web3 lifestyle app STEPN will utilize Lost World’s geoNFTs to create memorable real-life experiences. During NFT.NYC, STEPN will hold a scavenger hunt-like event featuring geoNFTs at running locations in Central Park and other areas, with minters becoming eligible for exclusive STEPN mints on the MOOAR NFT platform.

DeLabs Presents DeNYC: A Multi-Day GeoNFT Experience

DeLabs, the creators of DeGods and Y00Ts, is leveraging the Lost Worlds platform for its DeNYC multi-day event, including a landmark tour and treasure hunt with over $100,000 in claimable prizes. The geoNFT hunt comprises five landmarks throughout the city, each location offering 500 mintable geoNFTs on the Polygon blockchain:

  • Grand Central
  • Empire State Building
  • Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital
  • Central Park
  • Brooklyn Bridge

Bridging the Gap Between Digital and Physical Art

Lost Worlds has collaborated with 23 renowned artists to launch their debut geoNFT collections on the Ethereum blockchain. Among them are Derry Ainsworth, Gabe Weis, Cult Class, and emerging talent Anton Conolly. The individual who discovers and mints Conolly’s geoNFT in New York will also receive a 68″ x 50″ physical painting, establishing a hybrid experience for collectors.

Chikn Integrates Location-Based NFTs into Play-to-Earn Gaming

Chikn, a pioneering play-to-earn NFT game on the Avalanche AVAX, is introducing in-game assets as location-based NFTs with “Loot Boks.” These mystery box geoNFT mints contain items transferable and usable within the chikn.farm game and ecosystem. One minting event will occur at the farm atop the Jacob Javits Center, offering players a unique opportunity to acquire valuable in-game assets in the real world.

Exclusive Rewards for GeoNFT Scavenger Hunt Participants

During NFT.NYC, Lost Worlds will host additional geoNFT scavenger hunts. Participants who successfully collect geoNFTs from various locations across New York City will receive a non-tradable NFT Badge, unlocking VIP access to side events and exclusive NFT drops.
