We have started a collaboration with Bloktopia, the VR metaverse that aims to become the edutainment hub for all levels of crypto experience.
Built as a 21-floor high-tech tower rising from a decaying world, Bloktopia offers a compelling gateway into crypto for metaverse explorers. Its NFT-based economy allows entrepreneurs to own land and develop it as virtual real estate, with advertising and events that create earning opportunities for users.
Through our collaboration, Elrond has become an Anchor Tenant in Bloktopia, which means that a virtual Elrond HQ will be placed in Level 1, where all players spawn by default. This means maximum exposure for our customized lounge, and soon the customized content, such as ecosystem highlights or educational material, that will be made available in the virtual location.
We are further exploring deeper technical integrations with Bloktopia, such as bridging a portion of the BLOK supply as an ESDT token in order to give Elrond users easier access into the VR metaverse, and enabling Bloktopia NFTs to be purchasable in NFT marketplaces on the Elrond blockchain.
“The convergence of virtual reality and blockchain offers an unprecedented opportunity for creative expression, adding an immersive digital dimension to interpersonal relationships. Through the collaboration with Bloktopia, we reaffirm Elrond’s strategic focus on being at the forefront of the metaverse revolution.” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO.
“Our metaverse was built exactly for the kind of vibrant and savvy community that has coalesced around Elrond’s remarkable technology. We are excited to have them present at a prime location in our crypto hub and look forward to learn, have fun and build the future of Bloktopia together.” said Ross Tavakoli, Bloktopia CEO.
Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
Bloktopia is a VR skyscraper made up of 21 floors to commemorate 21 million Bitcoin. It will act as a central hub and welcome all levels of crypto experience. For the first time ever, users will have access to crypto information and immersive content all in one place.
