Troy Baker is recognized in the video game industry for lending his voice to memorable characters, including Joel de The Last of Us, jonesy in Fortnite and many others.
The actor has many followers on his social networks, but recently some protested upon learning that he will collaborate with a project focused on the controversial NFT.
Troy Baker will work hand in hand with the company VoiceverseNFT to create some resources that could be more valuable and useful than a jpg image.
“I’m partnering with @VoiceverseNFT to explore ways that together we can empower new creators to do new things, and allow everyone the opportunity to own and invest in the IPs they create. We all have a story to tell.”
This statement closed with a message that seems to have sparked controversy, since it concluded by saying ‘You can hate or you can create. What will it be?’
Even if Troy Baker did not fully clarify what the project is about, Voiceverse ensures that you will be able to acquire voices via NFT and use them for your own projects without the need for legal hassles.
In this way, by acquiring, for example, the voice of Troy, you can have him read audiobooks or even speak for you in the metaverse, which seems ambitious.
‘Imagine being able to speak with the voice of the character you’re playing in a multiplayer title! Imagine the next level of immersive experience!’
The business model of Voiceverse is to pay the actors in the form of royalties that would be increased if the value of their NFT rises, and although it does not seem to be something very stable, he asks that they give him a chance.
We’ll see how the project evolves and if the community approves it.
