Decentraland is a virtual world where you can build and explore 3D creations, play games and socialize.
This is the Metaverse where the world itself is owned by its users. Those who own land in the form of a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) decide what to build for the world. So, what is built on the land, well that is 100% up to the land owner. Whether they want it to be a casino, a common house, an art museum, or even a virtual strip club, the choice is theirs. The currency of this world is MANA, an ERC-20 token that is used to purchase land or in-world items and experiences. However, here’s the best part of the project. The servers that support Decentraland are made up of a system of nodes, in other words, a decentralized network.
Let me reiterate, the world is literally owned by its community members. This ownership allows real-world businesses to sell real-world items to real people in what will one day become a virtual world. From a business perspective it allows online schools to give its students a more hands on experience. It allows companies to conduct meetings out of the office. On a personal level, maybe you got that promotion and want to celebrate with your friends at the casino. Or maybe you just to frequent social clubs and play arcade games with your friends! Decentraland has something to offer for everyone.
With this being said Decentraland is still in its early stages as it just opened to the public on February 20th of this year.
There have been a lot of creative builds and content from the users and I encourage everyone to check out the unofficially official directory at this link here! https://dclplazas.com/
This weekend I am organizing a contest on behalf of TheBlockRunner team and MetaZone.io. TheBlockRunner team is a group of guys that are developing fun arcade-like games for Land owners to buy and deploy to their land. MetaZone.io is the marketplace where you can buy and sell custom builds. This is a service that can connect developers that do not own land, and land owners that do not have strong developer skills.
Starting on Friday at 12pmEST myself and about six other hosts will be conducting a BlockRunner contest.
We are giving away around 2 ETH in prizes! (~$250 at time of writing). The prizes will be given out on a random basis, and also to users that score over 50 on BlockRunner, a game in which you must jump over oncoming blocks!
User can also earn prizes by scoring over 100 on BlockHole, a game where the floor disappears below your feet if you are not on the correct colored tile. Users will only be rewarded 1 prize for their first score above the aforementioned amount. However, there is an unlimited amount of Free random prizes you can win! This weekend is to have a fun gathering amongst friends, amidst a world of social-distancing. The Contest kicks off on Friday at 12pm EST and comes to a close on Sunday at 7pmEST.
See you all in the Metaverse!
