Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Web 3 & Web 2

How can we design Web3 with diversity, inclusion and accessibility in mind?

Joel King Kasr is the founder & Chief Scientist of KaJ Labs Foundation.

KaJ Labs is a decentralized research organization focusing on Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technology, driven to create innovative products that work for the greater good around the globe.

Joel oversees all KaJ Labs’ research and proposed the LEP100 token standard for Lithosphere and other novel components of Lithosphere.

In 2018, Joel was named as the go-to industry insider for mobile apps by the Business Journal.

Joel majored in Computer Science while attending college.

Before Lithosphere, Joel contributed to the development of a bitcoin wallet and a privacy coin. Joel’s interests include cryptography, AI, DeFi, privacy, social responsibility, philosophy and sports.

Earlier this month, KaJ Labs announced that it will award $35 million in grants to the Jot Art (JOT) Metaverse Project. The Jot Art team, led by project supervisor, Raj Kumar, have raised an additional $20 million from Psalms Capital, & ACP.

Jot Art is Lithosphere’s metaverse and the infusion will aid in launching the cross-chain metaverse for the Jot Art play-to-earn (P2E) “Finesse” game. The game series has two chapters, “Shadow Warriors” and “The Kingdom,” that takes place in the same metaverse.

The multi-player platform features high-adventure gameplay with mixed RPG elements. Players upgrade abilities with items from enemies and the environment. The “Finesse” RPG game is now live. Players can access and play the “Finesse: Shadow Warrior Preview Season” via Android and WebGL (browser).

Jot Art will also release a “Finesse” Samurai Genesis NFT Warriors collection with 100,000 unique characters and collectibles, each with different rarity levels on October 1st at 00:00 UTC. Warriors from the Samurai Genesis collection can be used for NFT staking and NFT wrapping. Characters are evenly divided between male and female and into five rarity categories: original, rare, super rare, very super rare and mythic. Only 25,000 characters of the Genesis collection will be available for minting on 2 public chains in the first batch.

A select group of whitelisted addresses will be able to mint one character for free, with minting fees ranging from $25 and up.

Jot Art and Lithosphere are no strangers to the creation of P2E games or NFTs. KaJ Labs has been active in the mobile gaming industry for many years through Jot Art and the transition to Lithosphere’s unique blockchain allows for greater creativity and innovation. The financial infusion enables the “Finesse” metaverse to grow, evolve, and expand in multiple directions for the future of entertainment.
