Mainbot, the French start-up behind the edutainment robot Winky, has just announced that 75% of the first lots in their metaverse, The Winkyverse, have been sold in 3 days!
75% of the land sold in 3 days in more than 50 countries
In 2019, the company Mainbot launched its edutainment robot Winky. In 2021, it’s time for her to incubate her Winkyverse project, an educational metaverse with the determination to be the first of its kind. Finally, on September 29, 2,100 of Winkyverse’s first lots were put up for sale through a private sale. Thanks to Winkybot NFTs, holders have exclusive access to the sale and a 50% discount on “land” or land in French.
Based on its success with the Winky robot, Mainbot decided to embark on a large Web3 project: the first educational metaverse video game, The Winkyverse. It is a universe meant to be immersive and collaborative, which will offer a wealth of quests and various educational content suitable for adults as well as children and families.
A poetic story
The story of The Winkyverse is set 3,000 years in the future. After the Earth was nearly destroyed by pollution and overexploitation, and natural resources nearly disappeared, human civilization had to adapt and evolve. Thus EcoBots were born to heal the planet and erase their mistakes from humanity. Through various practices such as recycling or permaculture, people are now trying to live in an ecologically responsible way. In The Winkyverse, the player can thus travel through a gigantic open world where people, nature and EcoBots live in harmony.
Explorers of the Winkyverse can develop and personalize their land there to develop its gameplay and economic value by building economic structures, but also host educational content generated by other users or simply their own creations. Finally, it is possible to earn passive income from land ownership through collection, refining and craft taxes.
The system and the token on which the ecosystem is based
The 2,100 lots available in this first round of sales are located on Pomokata, the first biome in the Winkyverse. It is an archipelago with high peaks, lush forests and magnificent beaches.
Two types of land are for sale:
- standard plots priced at WNK$200,000; and
- the legendary lands are priced at WNK$2,500,000.
In this metaverse, all purchases are made in Winkies tokens ($WNK), a proprietary virtual currency. Winkies are used by big players1 unique. They can then be converted into traditional fiat currencies (dollars, euros…) to generate a profit.
” This first sale is encouraging with 75% of the land sold in 3 days in 54 countries. It demonstrates the appetite for a new metaverse, the desire of players and investors to take part in a new economy based on exchange, discovery and learning, in a virtual universe accessible to all”. comments Boris Kesler Fasano CEO of Mainbot.
1 Young players will benefit from a non-monetized gaming experience. Winkyverse offers two separate entry points for minors and adults. Winkyverse Kids is completely free, with no monetization or advertising, and offers content tailored to young audiences. The adult part has different content and an economy.
