There are a number of organizations and industry players championing the Metaverse movement. However, Realm appears to be at the forefront of the Metaverse buzz.
Realm is a cross-chain, open-source, community-driven, and blockchain-based platform for players, creators, and collectors. The platform allows both creators and collectors to fully express themselves and their artistic vision in its purest form — their own special and magical virtual realm.
Realm Breaking Records
Realm recently broke records in both their Launchpool AME and Polkastarter IDO whitelisting. Over 2.26 million people staked $LPOOL for $REALM, and close to 17,000 people have entered the whitelisting. Both these numbers broke both platform averages. The highly anticipated $REALM token is set to launch on September 14, 2021 on Polkastarter.
Leveraging the Realm platform, users can create distinct and customizable virtual ecosystems. In these virtual ecosystems, known as realms, users can host their NFTs, own genetically encoded living NFT pets, and explore other realms using augmented reality (AR). Users can also mint collectible NFTix to grant access to events in their realms and use live audio streaming to connect with their friends and fans. The combination of the visual, audio, and gamification, is what sets Realm apart from others in the Metaverse movement and is making them a leader in the space.
Investments and Mircoverse Denizens
Realm closed its first investment round last May 2021 bringing in over $2.25 million. The round was led by Alphabit with strategic investments from NGC, Genesis Block Ventures, LD Capital, Moonrock, and SL2 among others. Microverse denizens are welcome to sign up for early access to claim their realm this coming Fall 2021.
