Last week, Zilliqa announced it will launch an expansive metaverse platform called Metapolis.
Metapolis is a gamified extended reality (XR) metaverse platform that is set to launch in January 2022. This metaverse is designed for games, events, concerts, and e-commerce. Zilliqa will sell ads in Metapolis. Users will be able to interact with Metapolis through AR and VR.
The Metapolis metaverse is split into sections that Zilliqa is calling "domes." Each dome is "conceptualized to house brands, artists, concepts, games, e-stores, real estate, and more." Domes will also include non-fungible token (NFT) “land” that users can purchase and operate. Zilliqa also says that users will get customizable NFT avatars for interacting in Metapolis.
Zilliqa claims it is the first Layer-1 blockchain to offer this large of a metaverse. The project seems extremely ambitious, and it's unclear how much of the metaverse will be available to the public at launch.
