NFTs have already been a market disruptor over the last few years as a way for artists and creators to monetize their skills. These tokens have seen a shift in demand among fans and art collectors alike. This craze for NFTs has only grown with the introduction of the metaverse. Interacting as 3D characters online has been an immersive experience for fans, art collectors, and investors. Many brands have already entered this thriving market, so why would House of Petals (HOP) fall behind? The famous brand, a flower shop by day and Hollywood speakeasy by night, is now entering the NFT industry with a whole new universe of 3D avatars.
Model and entrepreneur Joey House is the owner of House of Petals and is leading its NFT project from the forefront. She has developed an elite team of experts from the crypto, business, and digital marketing space to ensure the House of Petals NFT collection stands out. The team comprises Duquan Brown, Chase Wimberly, Carrie Lyn, and Gino Nagtegaal, who is leading the HOP Discord to build an authentic community to establish value and connection.
Brown is a veteran in the music industry and a serial entrepreneur. Brown co-owns Future Media Holdings with Chase Wimberly, a strategic business developer in Amazon. Lyn hails from The Creative House and is a blockchain expert known for distributing music royalties for artists since 2017. The team is leaving no stone unturned to develop killer strategies to gain entry into the metaverse that combines digital marketing, music, and the blockchain into one platform. With this, the HOP metaverse is all set to bring back the vibes of speakeasy jam sessions of artists and fans.
The House of Petals NFT project has onboarded some of the top digital artists and creators in the world to create unique 3D avatars. Graphic artists like Kris Wimberly and Rae McCarson are already working on this project. Kris Wimberly is an executive producer for Disney and creator and host of The Animation Network. McCarson is an experienced artist, educator, and creator working with Marvel, Warner Bros, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Universal Studios, and a background painter for Disney.

The third important member of the team is former NHL player and Canadian-based artist Kylar Stern, the creator of Modern Art is Dead. The team of artists for the HOP metaverse collection is dedicated to creating innovative and whimsically inspired digital artwork.
The initial minting of HOP NFT will include over 5K membership tokens, and each member will be invited to exciting real and virtual world experiences. All holders are allowed to mint flowers or guitars and then use them to own an avatar. Community members will get special access to the meta-venue, its events, greenroom hangouts with artists, players, influencers, and other utilities before and after this first NFT mint.
The House of Petals NFT project has a lot more to come in the future to give its community members a more immersive experience.

The visionary behind Mindful Meta, Steven Luis Howell, will provide a collaborative utility for the House of Petals will shape the meta-experience with transformational tools for wellness.
