How the Blockchain Powers Up the Metaverse with Projects like the Book of Gates
As the digital world evolves towards the Metaverse, we’re seeing blockchainNFT projects (like the super-hot Book of Gates collection) drive the collective change to an evolved digital reality that empowers people and creators alike. And it’s the underlying functionality of the blockchain that helps this thrive. But how? Let’s take a look.
Empowering Everyone ThroughBlockchain Technology
While the true power of blockchain technology can honestly be said to still be in its infancy, its power is already very clear. Sometimes called ‘tokenomics’, its true power lies in the ability to create both a tangible asset- like the image associated with your NFT- but also an easily verifiable, trustworthy utility token that helps you access online spaces in a more secure manner.
Additionally, you have the ability to ‘take it with you’ between digital spaces, bringing that same chain of verification and power to the table. Unlike traditional gaming assets, for example, the asset is outright owned by the user, with the blockchain ensuring creator recognition too. Compare that to the traditional model, where a forgotten creator simply produces something that’s ‘rented’ to the ‘owner’ at the whim of a gaming company.
The blockchain ensures a consistent footprint of security that both helps shape the space and keep the ownership of your digital assets secure.
Powering Up the Metaverse with the Book of Gates
The Book of Gates NFT Trading Card Game shows this principle in action perfectly. Powering up the world of Alexander Black’s graphic novel with the underlying power of the blockchain brings us an exquisite NFT collection with a difference. It’s already become a cornerstone of up-and-coming collections, drawing people in with the iconic art style and rich promise of the underlying story. Imagine a world filled with secret orders, nefarious doings in the shadows, and an entire digital landscape to share, play in, and enjoy.
Now add the web3 gaming functionality that lets you shape that unique world for yourself. Trade, interact, play, and power up your characters and artifacts, secure in the knowledge that you- not a faceless gaming entity- have the power to build the game environment around you. Interact with fellow players and owners, trade your assets as you choose from your wallet, and immerse yourself in a compelling digital landscape unlike any other. Built on the Ethereumblockchain, your assets are yours to interact with as you will. With a familiar (and fun) trading card game format that everyone recognizes, you can have your NFT and use it, too. This is Gamefi principles and the beginnings of a true Metaverse experience at their best.
And the underlying blockchain ‘rails’ are what keeps everything flowing smoothly. It’s the people who create the content, empower the ideas, and interact and transact in the digital space that creates the value. And we’re only going to see more and more innovation and improvement in this space as the wider potential of both the blockchain and web3 experiences are enhanced. The future is, as they say, now. It’s time to enjoy it!
