In our second part of the two parts series – The Next-Gen Gaming Metaverse, Star Atlas, we shall dig deep into NFTs and finally Star Atlas.
In 1991, the first technology innovations (WEB 1.0 websites) were alive and it was nothing but a simple page with texts on it and some hyperlinks. Neither dynamic user interaction nor user-generated content, just texts on the screen.
WEB2.0: community based, highly interactive and yes, you can accomplish a lot with it. However, there is only one thing you can buy and own on the Internet, only one thing: “A domainName” and it is a unique name, no one else can create a website with the same domain name.
WEB 3.0: Because of the blockchain, everything you do on the Internet belongs to you and more precisely the genesis of Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs)
What is NTFS?
NFT: stands for Non-Fungible TokenNon-fungible = Non-replaceable
According to wikipedia, A non-fungible token (NFT) is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain , a form of digital ledger that can be sold and traded. Each NFT represents a real-world object such as: music, video, game item, or virtual baseball trading card. These digital assets are bought and sold online, usually with cryptocurrency.
So, Non-fungible tokens are unique and each has a digital signature that cannot be exchanged. The owner of an NFT can verify ownership using this digital signature.
For instance, in-game items like avatars, digital and non-digital collectibles, domain names and event tickets…
A TOKEN represents what the person owns. Therefore NFT is a non-fungible token.
You have the ability to own something and use it in WEB 3.0 contexts
Virtual Reality seems to be the only thing people are talking about, even though it’s only part of the metaverse.
Does playing video games cause attention problems?
The simple answer is NO. According to Childmind.org,there is no evidence whatsoever that TV or video games cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), explains Natalie Weder, MD, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Child Mind Institute who has treated many kids with the disorder.
Playing video games will make your brain smarter, better and stronger. When we say video games most people think of children: yes 90% of children play video games, but the average age of gamers is 33 years old and not 8 years old.
Playing video games has its benefits, including:
- Improved vision. Studies suggest that video game players may derive unexpected benefits like better vision.
- Brain booster. Playing video games has a direct impact on brain regions responsible for memory, spatial orientation, information organization and fine motor skills.
- Improved life skills. Video games involve taking risks and the ability to strategize. It teaches patience, perseverance and good judgment.
- May relieve anxiety and depression. It has been found that people are more confident, energetic, and emotionally positive when playing video games, which is the exact opposite of what depression causes.
People who feel depressed lack physical energy, find it difficult to perform daily tasks, and are generally pessimistic. Thus, playing can reduce the risk of depression, help fight arthritis and even be a treatment option for aphasia.
- Pain killer. Video games, especially 3D ones, may help reduce the brain’s response to physical pain.
WHAT IS STAR ATLAS?
Star Atlas is a space-themed massively played multiplayer online game. It is centered on space exploration, territorial control and political domination.
Players will be able to buy and own ships, land, buildings, structures, crew members, all as NFTs, be able to navigate the stars, conquer planets, attack other players, complete missions and simply explore the universe in ways that we physically cannot do today.
Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse emerging from the confluence of cutting-edge blockchain, real-time graphics, multiplayer video gaming, and decentralized financial technologies.
Immerse yourself in a future metaverse the size of an entire galaxy. Experience realistic Unreal 5 graphics as you explore, conquer and win, its fate is in your hands. Welcome to the final frontier. Welcome to the Star Atlas.
This project is going to be one of the best metaverse games out there.
What’s nice about this is the idea of customizing the metaverse in this way by colonizing different planets.
Now imagine entering the planet and setting up a shop.
You’ll be able to drive some ships, it might be a bit tricky at first, but once you get used to it, you’ll be able to do things like mine and attack other vessels.
You will be able to explore different planets and mine different territories, you can choose your own faction. There’s a lot of pretty cool stuff going on in space right now.
You can buy terrestrial digital video games among other things. Some would say it’s a waste of money, but for educated people It is the first step in owning a part in a video game.
Imagine being a digital real estate investor in the years to come, Imagine being a digital retailer.
Star atlas doesn’t have a game available yet, but they’re currently trying to get people into the community by selling a bunch of NFTS first. Eventually, people will be able to buy NFTs and sell them in the market.
Which is happening right now, people are buying ships and making money out of it, but the games aren’t available yet.
The sooner you buy a ship, the better for you, because with the way people buy ships on star atlas, its alarming, in the next few years the price of ships might increase.
For better understanding and more clarity we suggest you go through star atlas white paper and learn more from other people’s experience , then depending on how you understand it from there, you can decide whether to invest in star atlas or not.
Star atlas is a virtual game metaverse based in the year 2620. In this distant future, three major factions have emerged.
- The territory of mud ruled by man
- The ONI region as a consortium of extraterrestrial races
- The ustur sector controlled by sentient androids.
These factions are in a constant struggle for resources, territorial conquest and political dominance. Star atlas faction citizens will have the ability to influence the outcome of this intergalactic conflict while creating the opportunity to earn rewards for contributions.
Based on star atlas space age technology.
Real-time graphics technology using Unreal Engine 5’s Nanite enables cinematic-quality video game visuals. Blockchain technology using the Solana protocol has established a largely serverless and secure gaming experience.
Non-fungible tokens earned and traded within Star Atlas create an economy that replicates the tangibility of real-world assets and ownership.
You can do a recap from where we started with the first part of this series, The Next-Gen Gaming Metaverse, Star Atlas – Part One.
