The cryptocurrency world includes many unknown nuances to new users, making it increasingly difficult for users to navigate their way around. Crypto Twitter, Telegram, and YouTube contribute to the currency ecosystem of disjointed information that users face.
Fortunately, the concept of the metaverse might have the ability to unite information. In simple terms, the metaverse is aimed to bring interconnected experiences together into a single virtual environment. These otherwise isolated experiences are then crafted in a way that is logical to the user.
For example, a user might explore artwork and videos in a game by walking into a virtual museum, just one room in a larger virtual world. The user is then participating in an experience as an avatar thirsty for knowledge that is striving to improve its position in life with educational achievements and expensive assets. Although just an example, the metaverse concept is clearly illustrated by combining experiences that may be seemingly isolated to define a whole that is more valuable than the individual parts (such as owning digital assets and watching videos).
While many are still quick to attribute a metaverse’s applications to gaming, its uses extend far beyond that to educational or business applications with entertainment capacity more interactive than the original video game, Pong. Therefore, with the right setup, disjointed data can be eliminated by providing users with the ability to access all crypto-related information from a single location.
Bloktopia is a virtual reality metaverse that provides users with experiences complete with the ability to learn, earn, play and create. The platform itself provides content for users to educate themselves in the basic and more advanced concepts of digital currencies from the world’s most leading minds while also earning revenue through real estate ownership (including rentals) and advertising, playing online games and building networks, four otherwise isolated experiences. When brought together, users will have the opportunity to be a part of the community shaping cryptocurrency usage for the future.
When asked about their progress so far, Ross Tavakoli, Bloktopia’s CEO shares, “we were overwhelmed with the interest that we have had from investors, and are delighted to be able to close our private round of funding with some amazing backers.”
A skyscraper filled with knowledge
In actuality, the Bloktopia platform is designed as a skyscraper with 21 different levels — in recognition of 21 million Bitcoin (BTC). Each token holder in this setting will be known as a “Bloktopian,” who can then interact on a central hub designed for all levels of crypto experience.
The team has released a list of brands that will act as residents in the Skyscraper as “Anchor Tenants.” As primary content creators, users can expect Animoca Brands, Anti Fund, Kucoin, Polkastarter, Travala, Polygon, Avalanche, DuckDao, Collateral and influencers like Jake Paul, Bitboy and Wendy-O. These are only some of the partners that users can expect, as several more agreements are underway.More insights on Bloktopia here
Additionally, the platform also supports a user’s purchase of real estate, also known as REBLOK. Real estate can be purchased through a portal and later act as a valuable commodity for resale or rent to a tenant. The process can be likened to the purchase of property in the physical world and gives the metaverse a “play-to-earn” component. Users may own their own space that can be customized to their liking or they can join a tenant board of 100 virtual landlords.
On Oct. 5, Bloktopia plans to complete an initial DEX offering (IDO) or initial game offering (IGO) on four launchpads, which will follow with the Bloktopia Land Sale Portal. The team shares this event will offer NFTs a real use case that can appreciate and generate revenue.
The rest of the game will launch as a phase one version in March 2022. In the meantime, the team aims to continue building the content available in the ecosystem and further increase the number of key stakeholders involved in Bloktopia.
