The Otherside Metaverse demo starts with 4,500 participants: Highlights

The much-anticipated first trip to Otherside Metaverse ended with 4,500 users, with the project’s Otherdeed NFTs exceeding $ 1 billion in sales.

About 4,500 people jumped into the “first journey” technology demonstration of the Otherside Metaverse project associated with Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

The much-anticipated first voyage took place on July 16 and was open to Otherdeed NFT landowners, known as Voyagers, who all collected tokenized plots of land in the virtual Otherside world. It seems to have been a huge hit, with many community members taking to Twitter to express their enthusiasm for the event.

The first trip

The 4,500 Voyagers first joined an empty virtual lobby as Voyager avatars before all following a giant Bored Monkey through a colorful portal to Otherside Metaverse. When the Voyagers arrived at a place called Biogenic Swamp, they were directed to a centrally located stadium where they could test avatar dynamics such as dance, running, jumping and emojis.

From there, they were able to explore a few other selected areas and interact with the environment, which contained giant creatures that walked around and attacked Voyagers if they got too close.

In the early testing phases of the project, which include several “tours,” Yuga Labs said only Otherdeed owners and third-party developers would be able to access Otherside. The team noted that these Voyagers would be able to provide critical feedback on the platform and essential aspects such as SDKs and building tools in the game.

Little paper

Shortly after the launch of the first tour, Yuga Labs released a “litepaper” that provided a brief overview of the principles behind Otherside and the project’s progress. Initially, there will be three sentences; however, only the former has been described so far.

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

“Travelers will play an important role in building the platform’s core features through exclusive events, game testing capabilities, and as co-developers of our Otherside Development Kits (ODKs).”

“To plant the seeds of a thriving community, we begin development on Otherside with Voyagers, who are our early adopters and believers. They are a crucial part of Otherside’s history and are invited to participate in Voyagers Journey.

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

NFT other actions

Otherdeed NFTs have seen high demand since their launch in May, when the collection generated over $ 1 billion in sales volume in just three months, according to data from CryptoSlam. In terms of all-time sales, the figure places Otherdeed as the seventh best-selling NFT project of all time.

Yuga Labs also has a particularly strong presence in the top 10, with its other original projects, BAYC and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC), ranked as the third and fourth best-selling NFT project ever at $ 2.3 billion. dollars and $ 1.6 billion. sales each.

There are 200,000 tokenized plots in Otherside, and the base price for NFTs on OpenSea is 2.87 Ether (ETH), worth about $ 3,900 at the time of writing. However, these prices are generally at lower levels for minor reasons.
