The blockchain gaming platform, Enjin and Metaverseme, an augmented reality (AR) platform are set to introduce tradeable AR fashion assets to the Ethereum blockchain. The Enjin-powered non-fungible token (NFT), which can be worn by users’ avatars in the Metaverseme app, will launch on February 23.
Revolutionary Apps and Games
According to a statement, the Metaverseme app will allow users to quickly snap selfies in the real world and generate hyper-realistic avatars. The AR mode maps users’ real-world environment, where their digital avatars can be brought to life as they wear and interact with their NFT fashion. Users can then record their avatar wearing fashion NFTs in AR and share the videos via social media.
In his remarks following this announcement, Martyn Hughes, a founder at Metaverseme, talks up the importance and potential of blockchain technology. He says:
It won’t be long before blockchain is recognized as the internet of value for all immersive experiences. Being able to take your assets and use them across all of your favourite games and apps will revolutionize the digital economy.
Meanwhile, in their statement, the two entities explain that “the first NFTs that Metaverseme will adopt is a collection called Pluriform, a limited run of digital-only fashion items created through an ongoing partnership between Enjin, Atari, Metaverseme, and the Fabricant. The Pluriform NFTs will be available till February 28, and “all [the] unsold supply will be burned at the end of the sale.”
For his part, Enjin CEO Maxim Blagov praises the possibilities that arise from the combination of the blockchain and AR. He says:
Soon, your likeness will be able to ascend across the entire internet, and we’re excited to work with the Metaverseme team to make this happen.
Since joining Enjin, Atari and other game developers have locked over 10 million Enjin tokens inside high-functioning NFTs including those that can be used in Metaverseme.
