Otherside Metaverse demo starts with 4,500 participants: highlights

The expected first trip to the Otherside Metaverse was completed with 4,500 users, with the Otherdeed NFTs project exceeding $ 1 billion in sales.

About 4,500 people jumped on the “first voyage” technology demonstration at the Otherside Metaverse project involving the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) at Yuga Labs.

The highly anticipated first cruise takes place on July 16 and is open to Otherdeed NFT landowners, known as Voyagers, who all collect tokenized land spaces in the Otherside virtual world. It seemed like a smash hit, with many community members taking to Twitter to express their excitement for the event.

The first trip

The 4,500 Voyagers first joined a blank virtual lobby as Voyager avatars before everyone followed a giant Bored Ape through a colorful portal to the Otherside Metaverse. When the Voyagers arrive at a place called Biogenic Swamp, they are directed to a central location where they can try out avatar dynamics such as dancing, running, jumping, and emojis.

From there, they were able to explore a few other select areas and interact with the environment, featuring giant creatures roaming around to attack the Voyagers when they were too close.

In the early stages of testing the project, which included multiple “trips”, Yuga Labs said Otherdeed owners and third-party developers would be able to access Otherside. The team noted that these Voyagers can provide critical feedback on the platform and important aspects such as SDKs and in-game build tools.

Shortly after launching the first trip, Yuga Labs published a “litepaper” that provided a brief overview of the principles behind Otherside and the progress of the project. In the beginning, there were three sentences; however, only the former has been described to date.

The first round will include an 11 -part game mode around a “mysterious obelisk” that appears on the Otherside. The game mode will also allow users to explore what can be “harvested, made, sold, bought and sold” in the game.

“To plant the seeds of a thriving community, we began to thrive on the Otherside with the Voyagers, who were our first adopters and believers. They were an important part of the history of the Otherside and were invited to participate. join Voyager’s Journey.

In terms of principles, Yuga Labs said the platform is designed with a community-based approach, “real” asset ownership, and interoperability that will find support for NFTs from other projects. The team also hopes to include incentives and support such as education, experience, and leadership from partner entities that are well “established and respected” in the crypto space.
