This Project is Minting Egypt’s Pyramids as NFTs With Photogrammetry

Virtual Worlds – a company that makes 3D digital replicas of historical artifacts – has partnered with Enjin to mint historical places, including Egypt’s ancient pyramids, as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This is a one-of-a-kind project that combines NFTs and important historical sites.

Virtual Worlds will use photogrammetry to create 60K resolution, (!) 3D models that will look almost like real historical places. Enjin will enable Virtual Worlds to integrate these NFTs with games, virtual reality apps, and augmented reality apps. This allows everyone to experience historical sites like the Colosseum or the Temple of Artemis and feel as if they are actually there.

“We’re bringing the world’s most important artifacts and monuments to a new digital ecosystem, preserving them for future generations and making them accessible to the world in ways they’ve never been before. With Enjin behind us, our past global heritage can be shared and live on in our digital future.”

Elliott Mizroch, CEO of Virtual Worlds

When you buy a historical landmark NFT, it will go straight into your blockchain wallet. You have full ownership of your NFT and can trade it on NFT exchanges as well. These NFTs could be moved seamlessly between Ethereum, Efinity, JumpNet, and other blockchain platforms.

Virtual Worlds plans to introduce new features for their NFTs in the future. For example, they are allowing singers to host concerts in a historical place using virtual reality where fans can attend by purchasing NFT tickets.
