The vision behind Cryptic Entertainments:
We believe art is the most powerful tool to bring revolution around the world. There are numerous examples in the world that proves it right. We believe taking crypto and blockchain to masses art is the way forward. At Cryptic we assembled a team who understands crypto, believes in crypto and loves crypto. We make songs where we give our complete heart and try to bring masses to the biggest revolution going in human history fuelled by Technology. After co-founding Finstreet and taking it to a community of 4 million I am working on cryptic to take the edutainment route to educate people about cryptocurrency and blockchain. Our only focus is to make people aware of the crypto and blockchain through the art route.
Music, in particular, has a colorful history when it comes to bringing change to the world. It’s a universal language that transcends borders. In 2009, a Somali-Canadian artist wrote a song for Somalia, about the struggles of his country and the hopes of its people. A year later, the song was rewritten and performed by 50+ artists to spread awareness and raise funds for Haiti after the devastating earthquake of 2010. The same year, it also became Coca-Cola’s FIFA anthem. A single song had amassed such a massive history in a little over a year― K’naan’s Wavin’ Flag was not just a song - it was an experience that millions shared, it was a message of hope that brought nations together.
As an entrepreneur, the soul of a musician was always beneath me and I feel this should be used to spread awareness for the biggest revolution going on in humankind’s history.
I envision Music as a strong gateway for the masses to learn about this revolution which aspires to be borderless and permissionless.
I have spent the last four years removing doubts from people’s minds about the crypto world. I believe by creating mass appealing music and art we can cater to the doubts or any sort of misunderstanding into the minds of the general public.
Masses feel blockchain and crypto are quite technical in nature. There’s a requirement of the medium through which we can onboard masses into this ecosystem. We need an innovative medium of taking our message to the masses.
We will be making a community anthem highlighting different features like dapp staking along with the recent developments in the ASTAR. It will help reach out to the people about what ASTAR does and educate them about the ecosystem.
We will be providing the following to make sure we reach to masses about ASTAR:
- Original Soundtrack
- Album Art
- Lyrical Video
- Musical Video (4k Ultra HD)
- Pre Roll Act (Teaser)
- Musical Memes
- Distribution across 25+ music streaming platforms
