Fortnite voice actor Troy Baker’s response to backlash after announcing Voiceverse NFT project

NFT is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger. VGS explained Voiceverse’s claims.

“Imagine being able to create customized audiobooks, Youtube videos, e-learning lectures, or even podcasts with your favorite voice,” it says, “all without the hassle of additional legal work. This also allows people with limited resources to access professional-grade voices more easily.”

However, he later realized his mistake and made a statement,“Hoping I can help others do the same. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m grateful there are those who are passionate about their stance & not only feel safe to express that but also have the means to do so. The ‘hate/create’ part might have been a bit antagonistic…”
