We’re Now On Twitter
GrimTales is now on Twitter. No plans to do any real immediate social media marketing as our company’s focus is to create many great productions before getting the word out. But become an early bird and we’ll throw some worms out.
March 1, 2023-January 31, 2024
Certain marketplaces like OpenSea reportedly were not enforcing royalties on NFTs, so we’ve halted production and began development on our own marketplace. Although this didn’t effect any sales of our NFT books, we’ve need better control to ensure payments are being distributed. Our first priority is to make sure authors are paid for each copy of their NFT books that changes hands.
The development of our exclusive marketplace is expected to take 8-10 months.
