Ethereum was the ‘Metaverse’ before Facebook

Published

on

All objects and addresses in the Ethereum metaverse are part of a cryptographic truth ecosystem. The Ethereum blockchain exemplifies this concept by enforcing ownership over its realm of digital assets in a continuous, permanent, and trustless manner. All transactions in the Ethereum metaverse are intrinsically “trustless,” which means they don’t require human trust to work.

Facebook Metaverse vs. Ethereum Metaverse

Prior to Facebook, the word “metaverse” referred to Ethereum’s distinct digital ecosystem. Firts-principles design does not include AR, VR, AI, or other ‘future’ technologies. Rather, the Ethereum metaverse has always referred to apps that are trustless, open-source, private, and uncensorable.

Facebook has never been a member of the crypto-libertarian movement, and it doesn’t appear that it will be any time soon. “A virtual reality construct meant to displace the internet, connect virtual life with real life, and create unlimited new playgrounds for everyone,” according to Mark Zuckerberg’s version of the metaverse. Facebook has a very different metaverse definition than ETH.

Facebook appears to want to redefine the term “metaverse” to refer to the relationship between the digital and real worlds. This is not mentioned in Ethereum’s metaverse definition. Instead, the ETH metaverse is virtual first, with oracles providing access to data from the physical world.

Ethereum’s Strengths

If you know how Ethereum works, you’ll see that it and Facebook are playing two distinct games. ETH is a closed network that is open to everyone at the same time. Because it is fully distinct from all other networks. Ethereum is referred to as the “metaverse”. Facebook, on the other hand, is not the metaverse; it is a private corporation.

Overall, Ethereum’s characteristics as a currency network provide it a few key advantages over other technology firms.

The main objective of Ethereum is to meet the needs of our increasingly digital society. Ethereum is a decentralized digital ecosystem governed by a consensus protocol rather than by humans. On Ethereum’s blockchain, censorship, data tracking, and regulation are all impossible.

Ethereum improves as a result of evolution (specifically, through Ethereum Improvement Proposals). Companies in the technology industry upgrade by working together. With Ethereum being a currency, it has a particularly strong network effect, attracting and retaining new users.

Conclusion

Using Ethereum is like accessing and using the “internet,” as we commonly refer to it. I believe Facebook’s rebranding of Meta Platforms is incorrect because it ignores the premise that a genuine “metaverse” should be devoid of single points of failure, as well as the fact that individuals will choose to interact within a metaverse if they have basic human rights.

All of this boils down to the fact that technology is moving in opposite ways, between centralization and decentralization, and it’s critical to identify each team and their associated motivations.

USHD builds region’s first metaverse properties

Published

on

This year, Union Square House, a real estate brokerage in Dubai that has handled transactions totaling multiple billions of dirhams, will introduce the MENA region’s first Metaverse mansions. The initiative is being carried out at a time in Dubai when Web3 is being embraced by both the public sector and the private sector.

Non-fungible Tokens, also known as NFTs, are enjoying a meteoric rise in popularity in Dubai

One of the first industries to reap the benefits of Web3 applications, which are founded on blockchain technology and operate on decentralized, peer-to-peer networks, is the real estate sector.

According to recent market data, the total value of real estate transactions in the Metaverse reached UAD500 million in 2021, and it is anticipated that the volume will double this year. The market for real estate in the metaverse is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 31 percent between the years 2022 and 2028.

Utilizing Dubai’s savvy investor community and a relatively young population, which is characterized by high levels of familiarity and comfort with the concept of virtual worlds and its prospects, USH intends to develop and sell ultra-luxury digital properties as NFTs. These properties may or may not have their physical twins. USH will leverage these factors to their advantage.

MetaIncubator, the first Metaverse incubator in the Middle East, was recently launched by Dubai World Trade Centre. In the Metaverse, the Ministry of Economy hosted the world’s first ever economic summit, the Investopia Investment Summit. The Ministry of Health and Prevention has also created a new Metaverse platform that allows people to virtually access medical care and support. Eikonikos, a Dubai-based metaverse startup, recently received USD2 million in pre-seed funding from the private sector.

Customers who purchase digital mansions not only gain ownership of the properties but also have the ability to interact with other users and digital neighbors by viewing their properties in augmented reality.

Tezos engages in the metaverse with new release

Published

on

Tezotopia Battles could change the Tezos ecosystem’s metaverse outlook. This gaming metaverse, which has been abstract for a while, is finally becoming functional. Tezotopia Battles’ ambitious roadmap will provide web3 use cases.

Tezos users who are interested in GameFi and the Metaverse are likely to participate in Tezotopia Battles. GameFi was initially conceived of by Joab Garza, who is also the founder and creative director of Gif.games. A metaverse ecosystem has been built as part of the Tezotopia Battles project by GameFi.

Tezotopia has battle strategy-like gameplay. Players select and send into battle various units in order to earn rewards. A game that can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes has cool features and an engaging user interface

After launch, it was noted that there was no matchmaking system for battles. To fix this, the Tezotopia team has assigned battle values and limits to the units. It balances games by matching equal-value opponents for fair play.

However, the gameplay in this game is not the only standout feature. The Pay-to-Win model of the game features loot boxes that contain collectibles and tokens from the real world.

Because the team has listed some assets at their initial price, players will be able to purchase these assets at a reduced cost. Additionally, the project provides rad artworks that you can use to represent yourself in Tezotopia.

Participating in the project is more profitable than ever thanks to several giveaways. Work on the project began months before the demand-driving date. After a month, Tezotopia’s secondary market is busy.

The new project, Tezotopis, does have a few minuscule drawbacks. Joab Garza, who works for Gif.games, believes that blockchain will have a significant impact on wait times. The group is working on a new feature to speed up the process of entering games and lock down large units.

The gameplay in Tezotopia is not given much importance because the primary goal of the project is thought to be improving the metaverse functions of the Tezos ecosystem.

Each complimentary NFT will grant access to a free delicious, made-to-order Original Fatburger, thanks to a collaboration with Supper Club, a Web3 eating community that supports restaurants.

On National Hamburger Day, May 28, 500 NFTs will be minted and distributed to fans

Guests will be able to access their specialty NFTs through their Solana blockchain wallet beginning June 1 and continuing through the end of the month. They will also be able to redeem a coupon for a free Original Fatburger with any online purchase they make during this time.
