Zilliqa, a layer-1 blockchain protocol, will soon launch Metapolis – an extended reality (XR) metaverse that offers its partners a MaaS platform.
With Metapolis, Zilliqa offers users a data-centric and fully customizable XR experience accessible via web/Artificial Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). Metapolis is already building cities with a host of brands in games, esports, and the music industry, with $2 million in pre-launch revenue from the initial partnership.
Built on the Zilliqa blockchain – which uses sharding technology – Metapolis is highly scalable and affordable, with less energy than other blockchains, making it more environmentally friendly. Metapolis is essentially a blank canvas; brands define their space as what they want it to be.
Metapolis creates digital locations that meet the unique needs of each of its customers. For example, a world where users can connect with their favorite artists will vary greatly from a world to engage with sports teams.
Metapolis highlights include:
- Built for interoperability – open teleportation between cities in Metapolis ensures it is a connected metaverse with no digital boundaries.
- Advanced Game Engines – Unreal Engine and Unity are used, ensuring that each location is visually appealing and fully operational.
- Priority to user safety – Metapolis is built with Know Your Customer (KYC) controls and monitoring to ensure the highest level of security.
