NFT Worlds, the newest player in the digital land game, is making a big splash in the metaverse. The project minted October of 2021 -for free- and offers 10,000 worlds, now for sale on secondary at Looks Rare and Opensea. Today’s floor is almost 4 ETH.
This project has two major differentiators from its competitors- Sandbox and Decentraland. Firstly, The devs have not tried to break the mold here. They have utilized the open source ecosystem of Minecraft. For context, Minecraft has a current user base of 126 million monthly users, and the familiarity of such a game has been a huge asset to the NFT World’s community. The doxxed team is composed of @Iamarkdev and @temtranquil, along with a large number of community managers and building partners. Their knowledge is seemingly vast, and with over 10 years of experience in the Minecraft ecosystem, they are proving their worth by hitting milestones on their roadmap with ease. Secondly, the NFT worlds are more scarce, offering only 10,000 worlds, vs. the 90,601 offered in Decentraland, and 166,464 offered in Sandbox.
The recent buzz around this project also comes from an announcement about a scavenger hunt in one of the NFT Worlds. In this hunt, a person needs to find 12 words, and these words are the pneumonic phrase unlocking a wallet containing 40 ETH. That’s right. 40 ETH. It’s no wonder the degen community is excited.
Additional excitement comes from the gameplay. The more you engage, the more WRLD token you earn. The worlds are also decentralized, community driven/developed, and cross-platform. You may currently upload your world to Minecraft and create anything you wish, and even re-sell the creations on the openmarket. This private island is a great example of the possibilities. It will be interesting to see how the community utilizes these features, and what the future of digital land in the metaverse will be.
As always, do your own research, and happy hunting.
