Kamp Kilmer is excited to announce the launch of God Panels, an innovative NFT project. Following the launch of the initial God Panels genesis NFT collection powered by Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF), artists and collectors will be able to create continuously evolving artworks thanks to the Galaxis Art Engine. This is all part of actor and artist Val Kilmer’s vision for Kamp Kilmer, a fun, sacred, metaverse space where artists, musicians, collectors, and friends gather to celebrate creativity and make an artistic impact that survives well beyond our lifetimes.
Val Kilmer Reclaims His Artistic Expression With Kamp Kilmer
The American actor Val Kilmer has starred in movies including Top Gun, Batman Forever, Willow, Tombstone, Heat, and The Doors. But acting is only the tip of the iceberg for Kilmer’s creative talent, which spans various creative mediums such as poetry, painting, photography, and music.
Six years ago, Kilmer was diagnosed with throat cancer. Thanks to many prayers, medical science, and the love of his family, he successfully beat cancer. His throat was left severely damaged, meaning it is no longer easy for him to speak and be understood.
Kilmer found that when one thing in life is taken, another is given. Enter Kamp Kilmer, a destination where creative beings gather to express themselves in exciting and innovative ways while contributing to the evolution of the arts through technology and connectivity.
A living, breathing virtual space with boundless possibilities, where a community of eclectics and artists can thrive without limitations of space and time, and collaborate on art, film, music, and literary projects.
“I’m grateful that Web3 technology has enabled me to create an enclave where I can continue to connect and collaborate with the bohemians and pirates, poets, academics, filmmakers, and actors that have made my life so rich,” stated Kilmer.
Galaxis & BLKPRL Studios Help Launch God Panels NFT Collection
Already established in the traditional art world, Val Kilmer is well-known for a fine art exhibition entitled God Panels. The collection consists of the word GOD written across multiple panels—inviting viewers to examine their own relationship with the word.
The God Panels NFT Collection will expand on this concept, first by launching foundational genesis God Panel pieces created by Val Kilmer, and then inviting other artists and collectors to expand on them to create continuously evolving artworks that will survive well into the future.
- Presale: April 15, 9am EDT - April 21, 9am EDT
- Public sale: April 21, 9am EDT - April 28th, 9am EDT
- Cost: .088 ETH in the presale and 0.1 ETH in the public sale
- Limit: Maximum of 5 tokens per wallet
- Reveal: April 30, 9am EST
Subsequent to the sale of the 'genesis pieces', multiple artists will be invited to participate in the collection's expansion by collaborating to create new, derivative pieces. Each of these artists brings a new feeling, or theme, to the ever-evolving collection. Within this construct, multiple series from different artists will evolve as the single collection is expanded.
As the project evolves, gamification elements will be introduced, such as enabling collectors to merge the pieces in their collection to create their own unique derivatives pieces.
Community tools will also be implemented to enable God Panel owners to manage the project as it evolves, creating an autonomous art collection that can continue to expand beyond our lifetimes.
“The God Panels project will be the first of many within the Kamp Kilmer metaverse. With support from Chainlink VRF, users can generate provably rare NFTs and then continuously add utility to them over time,” stated Andras Kristof, Founder and CEO of Galaxis. “We’re excited that our platform can empower Val Kilmer and hundreds of other artists to explore what’s possible within the world of Web3. The ultimate goal of Galaxis is to build a future for NFTs through code and community.”
Unique Living NFTs Powered by Chainlink
Given that the NFTs minted as part of the genesis collection will be foundational to the God Panel project in perpetuity, it’s critical that they’re minted in a provably fair and tamper-proof manner. With this in mind, Chainlink VRF will be used to help ensure each God Panel NFT is minted in a provably fair manner.
Specifically, Galaxis is using Chainlink VRF to help randomly assign God Panel images to the token IDs that were minted during the sale. Chainlink VRF enables verifiably fair on-chain randomness that cannot be manipulated, helping ensure that each minter receives a truly random God Panel NFT.
Chainlink VRF is highly secure and transparent, giving users a high level of assurance that the randomness it generates has not been tampered with. Chainlink VRF works by combining block data that is unknown when the VRF request is initiated with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. The Kamp Kilmer smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has valid cryptographic proof, and a valid cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This provides users with automated and verifiable assurances that each NFT was generated in a provably random manner that could not have been manipulated by the oracle, blockchain miners, project participants, or the Kamp Kilmer team.
“Chainlink VRF is an essential service for any NFT project that needs a provably fair and transparent mint process,” stated Tomasz Wojewoda, Head of Global Sales at Chainlink Labs. “As art and technology begin to converge in the exciting world of Web3, Chainlink trust-minimized services are here to support projects like Kamp Kilmer with the mission-critical smart contract infrastructure they need.”
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
