UREEQA, a leading digital validation company that helps creators protect, manage and monetize creative work, has announced a progressive new partnership with fellow Canadian digital start-up Venusverse.
UREEQA is on a mission to modernize intellectual property standards, particularly when it comes to the digital space, while Venusverse endeavors to close the gender gap by removing the barriers to entry for women in Web3. And that’s what makes this such a match made in metaheaven.
“Both UREEQA and Venusverse are focused heavily on supporting creators by setting a higher standard in this realm, and on the elements of education and equality in this budding space,” UREEQA CEO Kirk Fergusson said. “We’re extremely excited to team up with an operation that exhibits such important values. And as an added bonus, we’re neighbors in Southern Ontario.”
As Canada’s first female-founded, female-focused educational program, incubator and NFT collection, Venusverse is blazing trails by empowering women to become early adopters in the world of Web3 through educational sessions that tackle the complexities of this new space. As well as an incubator designed to support female creators, and a forthcoming NFT art collection with membership access to the Venusverse community.
“We’re very excited about partnering with UREEQA, not only because they are another local Web3 start-up that will enable and protect creators as they move into the vast world of Web3,” Venusverse co-founder/CEO Janelle Chalouhi said. “But with lofty goals and loftier expectations, it’s important for us to ensure we have the support and process necessary to deliver on our mission. Partnering with another creator-focused, forward-thinking platform like UREEQA will empower us both to flourish.”
Established in Canada in 2020, UREEQA is modernizing the inefficient and bureaucratic systems currently in place for copyright protection. By building a robust and compelling Package of Proof(TM) for source creative work, UREEQA only mints Validated NFTs to represent creative rights. This helps keep buyers safe by giving them confidence that the work they are purchasing was minted by the smart contract approved by the creator of the work and is therefore authentic.
The UREEQA platform strives to protect creators’ work, their rights and their revenue by harnessing the power of blockchain technology. UREEQA provides value and opportunities for its creators, validators and token holders via URQA, the token at the heart of the UREEQA ecosystem.

UREEQA (www.ureeqa.com), a blockchain platform for protecting, managing and monetizing creative work, today announced several exciting new programs that are designed to generate considerable returns and benefits for the budding platform’s community members, as well as a substantial bump in the URQA token.
UREEQA has launched a new Community Qards campaign that will lead this fall to tremendous new opportunities for those who are most loyal and active within the platform’s orbit.
Community Qardholders will gain access to a VIP Staking Pool with a 155% Annual Percentage Yield (APY) that will launch on September 30, 2021. Those who collect a full set of the seven first-generation Qards will gain full access to the top tier of the platform’s new tier structure. That means direct access to senior members of the UREEQA team, discounts on NFTs, shares of community pot payouts, and access to the UREEQA Vault as well as exclusives in the UREEQA Marketplace.
Critically, all the proceeds from Qard sales under this month’s campaign will be used to market buy URQA. That will lower the supply of URQA on the market and further protect UREEQA’s investors by stabilizing the market price of the token.
“Our Qards, Staking Pools and Tiers are integrated so that the passionate members of our growing community can benefit in a variety of ways from their involvement and investment in our platform,” UREEQA CEO Kirk Fergusson said. “This fall, we’re giving UREEQAns a new way to expand their NFT collections while also building their portfolios, increasing their clout within the community, and bolstering the value of the token. Everybody wins.”
Community Qards are persona NFT collectibles, available at the UREEQA Marketplace. Seven personas will be made available as part of the initial batch, with the next drop coming Thursday, September 16 at 7 p.m. ET.
It is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor on something with tremendous yield. Plus, it involves original and unique NFT art as part of the world’s first truly, publicly and transparently authenticated lot of collectible NFT cards — enabling buyers to become a part of digital collectible history.

Topic: Press release summary
You may recognize the work of the newest addition to the UREEQA Collection of Pledged Assets if you tuned in to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, or if you’ve ever visited Edmonton’s famed Epcor Tower.
Dean Drever is an acclaimed Canadian sculptor whose minimalist and abstract work can be enjoyed at famous landmarks throughout the country, including Toronto’s Union Station and the Toronto Sculpture Garden.
Drever is a particularly exciting addition to the UREEQA Collection of Pledged Assets, as he is the first artist working in a physical art medium that we are welcoming to the platform. We are pleased that Drever’s pledged work can help illustrate the versatility of the UREEQA platform to protect artists from a variety of backgrounds and mediums.
As a Creator, Drever’s primary reason for joining the UREEQA platform is to protect his work throughout its many iterations and during the development process. This is one of the many challenges that Creators like Drever face, and a real life example of a problem that UREEQA can solve.
A creation starts as an idea, that idea is yours, and it deserves protection.
This is incredibly important to us and is at the forefront of our minds as we develop, launch and grow the platform. UREEQA will help alleviate the fear of bringing an idea to fruition, just for it to be stolen.
Although Drever’s work often ends up in physical form, it begins as an idea, and that idea can still be protected by the power of the Ethereum blockchain. Whether works are digital or physical, the Creator will be able to utilize the UREEQA platform to validate and protect their work. Though we may be seen as a blockchain company, we are utilizing this technology in a real-world application to empower Creators.
If you visit Drever’s YouTube page, you can see his creations come to life – from ideas to massive realities, and it’s easy to understand why he would want protection. For his Bear with Salmon sculpture at Edmonton’s Epcor Tower, Dean first designed the bear with illustrations – much like an architect would a building. The bear was then cast and assembled in a foundry in New York. Finally, the two-tonne sculpture was driven across the continent to Edmonton, Alberta. One could understand the many points along the creative way at which Drever’s work could be compromised.
Once a piece of creative work is hashed to the Ethereum blockchain through UREEQA, it is timestamped, giving proof of WHEN a Creator’s ownership was claimed. This means that as soon as you have an idea, you can stake your claim to your rights. A package of proof can then be built by our team of Validators through our Validation process.
We want to ensure that no idea goes unseen for fear of it being stolen, before it can even be realized by the original Creator. UREEQA will protect work from the smallest idea to the largest creations, including two-tonne sculptures.
Dean also looks forward to the social aspect of UREEQA. It will allow Creators, like Drever, to confidently share their work with fans and art lovers all over the globe, without the fear of it being stolen and having no recourse.
In this way, the UREEQA platform will be an empowering and inspiring place to share creativity. After all, our love of various forms of creative works is the one thing that binds us together as global citizens.
