Smart MFG 2021 Review and 2022 Outlook
2021 has been an incredible milestone year for Smart MFG. From the ramp up to the upcoming launch of the world’s first Phygital-themed 3D Model compatible NFT marketplace for interoperable metaverse assets bridging to real-world use case NFTs and physical supply chain; to the building of a DeFi ecosystem for makers, designers, gamers, and metaverse creators, to the execution and success of our scheduled roadmap for last year; be prepared for world’s firsts, unique and exciting advancements in 2022!
NFTs in 2021
2021 was the year of the NFT. This unforeseen growth was charted in an industry report by DappRadar – a blockchain-powered sales tracking firm for NFT/Defi portfolios. The report stated that trading in NFTs accounted for $22bn in 2021, dwarfing the $100m recorded in 2020, and that the floor market cap of the highest ever issued 100 NFTs has a collective value measure of $16.7bn.
The forecast is for 2022 to be yet another market boom for NFT assets, with the final launch and integration of Metaverse initiatives by projects of a wide variety of verticals. Hence, there are an abundance of reasons why NFT integrated asset creators should consider a marketing approach involving the new evolution of social collaboration – the Metaverse.

Smart MFG Q4 Achievements
1. Community Building
As building and maintaining a relevant community is the greatest asset to reach our mission of becoming the world’s first interoperable 3D NFT marketplace, we have continued to reach out to our community members through AMA’s and many other marketing activities.
2. Liquidity Mining Campaign
One of the successes in Q4 was the launch of our first in-house liquidity mining campaign with the Uniswap V3 MFG-ETH pair. This approach is our way to show appreciation by incentivizing our liquidity providers who helped support and grow our ecosystem.
As our goal is to continue to decentralize further, develop, test-run, and expand, we are on the long-term mission to provide competitive reward mechanisms for the long foreseeable future to encourage, boost and retain the loyalty of our Liquidity Pools (LP). The LP campaign began in Q4 2021 (October 1, 2021) and will end in Q1 2022 (March 31, 2022). (Here’s the official guide)
In addition, the development team is working tirelessly to integrate and implement an L2 bridge for the new Uniswap V3 MFG-USDC pair in anticipation of the upcoming LP campaign scheduled for Q1 2022 and all details will be featured on our dashboard in the coming months.

5. Smart MFG NFT Marketplace – Building The Metaverse
Q4 hastened our journey to the Beta launch of the world’s first 3D NFT marketplace for interoperable metaverse assets and real-world use case NFTs. The metaverse and gaming platforms biggest pain point today is the lack of interoperability between them: an asset in one platform cannot be used, sold, licensed on another platform due to varying graphics formats; this massively limits revenue opportunities for asset creators as well as generates liquidity problems for gamers and limits their opportunity for play-to-earn activities. Smart MFG NFT marketplace uniquely solves this biggest problem; users will benefit from the many features, ranging from minting, incentivization, auction services, etc, but also the opportunity for both creators and gamers to benefit more broadly from 3D assets that are the foundations of the metaverse through interoperability of assets across metaverses and gaming platforms – accelerating the move to the GameFi, CreatorFi and Play-To-Earn, serving as an entry point into the Web 3.0 economy.
With the real-world asset backing of Smart MFG, its support by partnering with SyncFab, and being an expanding ecosystem, it’s no doubt that the NFT marketplace will be one of a kind. Smart MFG uniquely operates at the intersection of supply chain, DeFi, NFT, Metaverse, and GameFi and will be the first dedicated true phygital platform that bridges the intersection of digital and real-world use-case NFTs.
2022 Outlook – What we have to look forward to!
2022 will witness the full launching, optimization, and enhancement of the Smart MFG NFT platform and marketplace, linking creators, gamers, collectors with experts in graphical transformation of assets to provide the interoperability of 3D metaverse assets and liquidity that this ecosystem needs. This launch will be further strengthened through community development, market housekeeping, hiring internal new teams/advisors, and introducing various forms of incentivization, as well as launching the 3D creator ecosystem, supply chain Defi financial services, and smart cross-border payment system.
In addition to partnerships with Metaverses and Gaming platforms, Smart MFG also prioritizes partnerships with service stakeholders and leading industrial manufacturing supply chains using blockchain for additional mutual benefits in the following areas:
- Liquidity partnerships
- Liquidity solutions that digitally transform supply chains with greater efficiencies.
- DEFI-driven supply chain financial tools.
Smart MFG Poised To Launch Groundbreaking 3D NFT Enabled Metaverse Marketplace.
The NFT is a decentralized asset enabled by blockchain now taking early partnership innovation to the next level 3D assets are soon to become the latest offering. For example, the Metaverse, which is only getting started, is fuelled by 3D NFTs – They are the literal building blocks. As the Metaverse develops, their value and importance will become more evident.
It’s all about guaranteeing real value for creations, knowledge, and information in the form of 3D and regular NFTs. Smart MFG already had a massive community of industrial designers and 3D artists involved, and the expansion into an NFT platform was a logical step forward.
Smart MFG recently announced the soon-to-be-launched SmartMFG NFT marketplace. It is the world’s first comprehensive NFT platform for creating, storing, and transferring industrial design and 3D gaming assets in the form of NFTs.
It is a marketplace for metaverse builders, gamers, industrial designers, concept artists, and makers. It is a platform for them to create, exchange ideas and sell or license 3D model NFTs in the Metaverse or physical world.
Here, these creators are incentivized to make the most useful and practical 3D NFTs that they will own and sell and trade. As a result, this marketplace will play a pivotal role as the supplier of the building blocks of the Metaverse, which is fantastic!
Industrial designers and concept artists will use the Smart MFG NFT platform to create value and market their creations on a platform that has already proven itself across the manufacturing industry.
The categories within the marketplace will include:
- Metaverse Buildup
- Blockchain Gaming Skins
- 2D & 3D Designs
- Industrial Design
- Rockets, Spacecraft, Supersonic Airplanes, Electric Airplanes, EV Electric Vehicles, Automobiles
