Affyn is a Sinapore-based company operating in the blockchain gaming space. It’s goal is to leverage the play-to-earn model so that rewards earned in the virtual world have the ability to also be utilised in the real world.
The NEXUS World metaverse is part of that goal. This will take advantage of mobile geolocation services to directly map metaverse cities to the real world.
Affyn has announced that Singapore will be the first city within this world. 2,000 plots of Freehold Land NFTs will be featured. These NFTs will correspond with actual locations in Singapore.
The NFTs are hexagonal in shape, representing approximately 15,000 square metres. They are also further categorised into rarity levels – Common, Rare, Epic and Mythical. The NFTs will be further distinguished by their own features. This includes attributes like grass, rock, sand, snow, and well as a combination of climates.
As is typical for metaverse games, higher tiered users will be able to access more benefits. One of these benefits includes a greater chance to spawn what are known as “buddies”, in essence rarer collectibles. Land owners will also get access to invite-only events and campaigns.
After developing their land, landowners have further options. They can rent portions of their virtual real estate to other players, host events, build businesses and complete a range of other activities to help raise revenue.
On December 17 at 12:00 UTC, users who have bought Flags will be able to claim plots of Land within the Singapore metaverse city.
“The initiation of Singapore as the first metaverse city represents a major milestone for Affyn and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the product development roadmap,” says Founder & CEO, Lucaz Lee.
“We are beyond excited for NEXUS World Landowners to experience the metaverse coming to life and take part in co-creating and powering the economy. These encouraging developments and more cities arriving in the coming months will prove invaluable catalysts for ongoing Web3 gaming adoption.”
Adoption within Web3, of course, has cratered this past year. As markets across the space have tumbled, interest within play-to-earn games has waned, given the price of rewards in real life has fallen do drastically.
Affyn, however, are determined to press on.
