There is a new browser-based magazine coming in
January dedicated solely to NFTs — non-fungible tokens — the unique and non-interchangeable units of data stored on a blockchain, the technology that underlies cryptocurrencies, such as
Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The NFTs features in Cheeze magazine are available for purchase both in the app and the browser.
In January, a private beta version of the mobile app Cheeze will be available in app stores free to download and the browser-based Cheeze magazine will launch.
The app features content from a wide range of veteran tech-industry writers and will include “drops” of NFTs related to that issue’s content that can be purchased by readers. The title will also be printed twice annually as a coffee-table magazine.
The editor-in-chief is Ceslie Armstrong, an award-winning journalist and industry veteran who has contributed to Marie Claire, Glamour, Mode, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Grace Woman, San Antonio Magazine, and others. She’s been featured and quoted in hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times andForbes.
The theme of the first issue is stories of iconic women — past and present — whose words, works, actions and tenacity impacted the world.
The stories, with iconic images by heralded photographers in the form of NFTs, will be published as features in the magazine. They will be available for sale and minting to the Flow blockchain. All photos in the stories will be minted as NFTs. The parent company, Cheeze, Inc., will donate a portion of its profit from each sale in January to a curated group of nonprofits focused on girl’s and women's issues, including education, empowerment and social justice.
A pre-launch incentive to the community — and homage to the year the first photograph was taken — is a collection of 1,826 hand-designed and illustrated camera NFTs. The drop is called the Genesis Camera Collection. Jan. 5 is now the whitelist and Jan. 6 is the public availability date.
Cheeze, Inc., is a photography-focused NFT, Media & Entertainment company founded and operated by entrepreneurs and entertainment veterans. It’s built on the Flow blockchain. The Cheeze Marketplace and Mobile App seek to advance the democratization of storytelling through powerful imagery using NFT and Web3 technology.
