Cere Network, the first Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC) platform, today announces the launch of DaVinci, the world’s first direct content monetization platform for NFT-backed experiences. The platform is deployed on Polygon’s network and will leverage support from Polygon’s NFT and gaming arm, Polygon Studios.
DaVinci is the all-in-one Web3 media platform, powered by Cere’s Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC) and Cere Freeport, the NFT mining platform deployed on Polygon. By combining these technologies, DaVinci uniquely enables personalized content streaming to NFT holders via smart contracts that power the Cere DDC. By facilitating decentralized data transfers along with (NFT) value transfers, it solves the industry-wide problem of NFT-backed assets lacking security and while enabling truly decentralized ownership.
The DaVinci platform leverages Cere’s Freeport NFT smart contract toolset, enabling creators to mint and sell functional NFTs that provide access to exclusive content. Uniquely, each NFT created on DaVinci’s platform will remain linked to the original creator through the use of smart contracts that guarantee a share of the royalties from any sale and establish a way for the continuous delivery of exclusive new content. Artists will be able to leverage DaVinci’s user engagement, audience research and analytics tools to tailor their content to NFT holders, increasing both fan loyalty and the value of those NFTs.
Fred Jin, Co-founder of Cere Network, said:
“Most NFT content is not stored securely on the blockchain. This is a problem, simply because your NFT can lose its content and associated value. The DaVinci platform solves this problem via Cere DDC’s secure decentralized content delivery innovations. We’re really breaking new ground here, both for the entertainment industry and consumer enterprises, through a new standard for decentralizing data/content along with the Polygon team.”
The platform introduces an array of new features that are unique to the blockchain and NFT space, including whitelabeled experiences for enterprise brands, content that pays the artists for views, subscription or ticket models for exclusive performances, multi-payment support, and pre-integrated custodial wallets for non-crypto-savvy audiences. In the coming weeks, the DaVinci platform will announce several artist, performers and brand collaborators.
Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon, said:
“The world has seen only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what NFTs are capable of. There is so much more that artists and fans are able to accomplish and access through DaVinci that realizes more of the blockchain potential to the mainstream consumers. Artists,performers and brands get more revenue from their unique content, while fans get better experiences and secure delivery of their assets. Everyone’s a winner here and we’re excited for this new standard for artist and fan engagement.”

DaVinci is the (first) Web3 Media & Experience Platform built by Cere Network in collaboration with Polygon and Polygon Studios. Via creator-issued subscription NFTs, fans can unlock exclusive content that co-functions as NFT collectibles. With DaVinci, the asset that is backed by the NFT is truly and uniquely owned by the fan, stored on Cere Network’s Decentralized Data Cloud.
Cere Network’s Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC) platform directly integrates with any EVM blockchain such as Ethereum and Polygon. Cere is the first Web3 project that facilitates trustless cloud data storage, integration, and data collaboration across blockchain networks, as well as Web3 NFT, metaverse, and gaming content.
