(CSE:LQID / OTC:LQAVF / FRA:4T51), has announced a new global strategic partnership with GDA Capital, a leading digital asset firm and Assets International, an global organization that provides digital asset companies with growth capital and advisory services. The partnership will allow Aftermath Islands to leverage both GDA Capital’s blockchain and fintech experience with Assets International’s capital markets and advisory services to continue expanding their metaverse user base and gameability.
After the Meta (formerly Facebook) announcement, the Metaverse continues to be one of the strongest areas of early stage investment as capital, technology, and development resources continue to flow into the space.
In Aftermath Islands’ metaverse, users can buy, develop and trade virtual land property and items as NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Each plot or parcel is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their virtual land. The NFTs can be held in a wallet, traded, and sold at the discretion of the owner.
GDA Capital and Assets International will assist Aftermath Islands in the development and adoption of this thematic virtual world by forming strategic relationships with various Metaverse platforms and other key industry and blockchain stakeholders. A key objective is to support the growth of the Aftermath Islands Metaverse with partnerships with other Metaverses, support the efforts of Liquid Avatar Technologies digital identity solutions for the Metaverse, brand development, as well as strategic introductions with engineers, 3D designers, and architects in order for Aftermath Islands to become a hub for Metaverse users to connect and play together.
Founder at GDA Capital, Michael Gord, said: “Aftermath Islands is taking a different approach to Metaverse adoption and introducing brands, companies and service providers into these virtual worlds as a way to strengthen relationships and create unique user experiences. We are excited to work with Aftermath Island as a pioneering platform that will create value both in and out of the Metaverse.”
CEO at Liquid Avatar Technologies, Managing Director Oasis Digital Studios Limited and Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited, David Lucatch, said: “The Aftermath Islands Metaverse is designed to be a virtual environment, where everyone can work, learn, play, game, entertain and earn. Aftermath Islands is positioned to support good actors, privacy and fair play and will provide our users, brands and partners with experiences where they can step into a truly new environment while engaging in value based virtual activities that can be achored to the offline, real-world.

About Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited – www.aftermathislands.com
Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited is a Barbados corporation which is 50% owned and controlled by Oasis Digital Studios Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc.
Aftermath Islands as first described in the initial whitepaper published in 2017 and then subsequently updated, was based on the premise of a water-world with islands that represented destinations in a global virtual game. Since then, the Aftermath Islands metaverse has evolved and now represents exciting themed based islands, communities, and estates where players can experience a wide range of adventures and opportunities.
In Aftermath Islands’ virtual world, users can buy, develop, trade, and sell Virtual Land (VL), property and assets, like buildings, crafted items, transport, and other items all through NFTs, a non-fungible token that represents the ownership of virtual and other assets. Each plot or parcel of VL is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their VL. This can range from simple scenery and structures to an interactive game, store, warehouse, dwelling, facility, or destination. Users can purchase VL as well as all other goods and services in Aftermath Islands with CREDITS, the current code name for in-game currency, fiat and other authorized currencies, coins, and tokens.
Account holders can also participate in Aftermath Islands’ upcoming FREE Play to Earn game, The Lost Kingdom of T’Sara where players can prove work, stake and complete task-based adventures to earn utility tokens, resources, rare drops and more.
Aftermath Islands is a shared virtual world, much like the Metaverse described by author Ernest Cline in his science-fiction novels Ready Player One and Ready Player Two. Expected to launch mid-2022, Aftermath Islands will allow users to connect and interact with each other, create content, craft, participate in activities and quests and play games. Aftermath Islands will have a virtual economy where users can engage in a myriad of in-world economic transactions as well as monetize the content, items, quests, and applications they build.
