You might've heard of The Sandbox, Decentraland, Axie Infinity and other Metaverses, but what about a true virtual reality Metaverse. Somnium Space is one such Metaverse and it's completely an immersive world for users to experience. Its whitepaper claims that the Metaverse provides a "true Ready Player One experience".
Today, we will talk about Somnium Space, what it is and how to download it. So, let's dive in!
What is Somnium Metaverse?
Somnium Space is a social virtual reality Metaverse built on the Ethereum blockchain. The ultimate vision of the team is to build a new world for the next level of communication, e-commerce, entertainment; and a place to live.
The Somnium Metaverse is all about socializing, playing, working, trading goods, and creating content in VR. Everyone can buy land, build or import content, use avatars & scripts, and monetize their experiences.
The Somnium universe has an interesting feature called Karma. Like Reddit Karma, it represents your social status and how others perceive you in the virtual world. Your Karma level will be based on how other players rate you, how engaged you are inside the virtual world and various other factors.
Somnium Space is powered by the in-game currency Somnium Space CUBES (CUBE). CUBE is used as the medium of exchange for all in-world transactions, purchases, and renting in the Metaverse. In future updates, Somnium players will be able to earn CUBE tokens based on their Karma level.
