Allah Rakha Rahman, the Indian singer, and songwriter behind global hits like Jai Ho, which has over 222 million views on YouTube, has announced the upcoming launch of his metaverse platform.
The platform is dubbed KATRAAR, a Tamizh word that means “a group of learned people who can change the world,” according to the multi-award-winning singer.
The platform would facilitate the discovery of new talents in music and art, as well as their exposure to innovation and new technology, and would connect individuals who have ideas to possibilities.
Rare and one-of-a-kind NFTs relating to art, music, storytelling, and other types of art will also be released through the platform.
Rahman also mentioned an undisclosed project centered on virtual beings, in which individuals and artists might find new ways to express themselves in the digital world.
KATRAAR is being developed in collaboration with the HBAR Foundation, a team of technology, business, legal, marketing, and ecosystem development experts who assist in the development of projects based on Hedera, a fully open-source public distributed ledger that employs the fast, fair, and secure hashgraph consensus.
Although KATRAAR has not yet been released, Rahman described it as “one step closer to launching” in a recent tweet, with sign-ups already open.
