Otherside Metaverse: How Different It Is From Metaverse?
Can technology enhance the RPG game and make it much better? Yes, it can! The introduction of Metaverse was just the beginning of offering an immersive experience to users. However, today with the evolution of technology, one can see endless possibilities and potential in the virtual world.
One such grand offering is the Otherside Metaverse, a whole new world filled with adventure.
This article will explain what the Otherside Metaverse is and how it is different from Metaverse.
Otherside Metaverse Explained
It is a three-dimensional digital world venture that is similar to Metaverse projects, such as Sandbox, Decentraland, and other Metaverse platforms. The objective behind the creation of this project is to offer an immersive experience and interactive experience to the users and also give them an opportunity to users to shape their experiences.
This multiplayer game was created by Yuga Labs and is said to be one of the most sought-after projects due to its gamification model (MMORPG model). Moreover, this game has a deep association with the BAYC project. In fact, Otherside Metaverse marks the entry of BAYC and MAYC founders into the metaverse space.
Blockchain technology acts as a base for this virtual world venture. Furthermore, this virtual environment is interconnected and facilitates communication (plus voice chat) between ten thousand players simultaneously with the help of avatars.
Users can create and customize their own avatars, which can be used to explore different virtual environments, attend events, and interact with other users. One of the key features of the Otherside Metaverse is the creation of digital assets, such as virtual real estate, clothing, and other items.
These digital assets can be bought and sold using cryptocurrency, which is the primary means of exchange within the Metaverse. The ownership and transfer of digital assets are recorded on the blockchain, providing a transparent and secure way of managing assets.
The Otherside Metaverse is also designed to be interoperable with other blockchain-based platforms and applications, allowing for seamless integration with other digital ecosystems. This simply means that users can get their digital assets from other platforms into this platform and vice versa.
Otherside Metaverse: Explain its working
To understand the workings of the Otherside Metaverse, one must first learn about its major components, such as APE and Otherdeed non-fungible tokens.
APE: ApeCoin, or simply APE, is a Bored Ape Yacht Club-affiliated cryptocurrency with various functionalities. It was developed by Yuga Labs on blockchain and was envisioned to back decentralized Web3 development. Initially, APE was distributed to everyone who possessed BAYC or MAYC non-fungible tokens.
Additionally, users who owned these crypto tokens were given the right to vote (on improvement proposals) and govern the community. Apart from this, users can enjoy other exclusive advantages related to ApeCoin.
Otherdeed: Also known as Otherside land non-fungible tokens, it was initially launched as 55,000 virtual plots in the Otherside Metaverse and forms an essential part of this ecosystem. These plots include various terrains or types of land that the users can discover. Some of the terrains include glaciers, lava-laden forts/castles, psychedelic environments, and so on.
These are dynamic in nature and include diverse game components in it. In fact, each Otherside land non-fungible token possesses a set of resources and lends a different metaverse experience to the user.
Furthermore, the dynamic nature of these non-fungible tokens enables them to have different traits per user activity. In other words, the traits of Otherside land NFTs change with changing using activities.
Additionally, this aspect helps in including and removal of assets from the digital plots easily. Therefore, one can say that these non-fungible tokens form a base for a secondary marketplace within the Metaverse.
There are 5 basic traits of the Otherside Metaverse, of which two are constant as the metaverse substrate. Here are the five traits:
Here, the sediment and environment represent the natural surroundings of the plot and also give a description of the nature of the plot. Koda and artifacts, however, are scarce assets that have the potential to boost the value of these plots. Resources are dynamic and exist in the environment; they can be added or removed from the plot.
While APE and Otherdeed NFTs are the two essential components of the Otherside Metaverse, there are other vital elements, such as NFT characters and Kodas.
NFT Characters: As we already know that Otherside Metaverse is a virtual environment built for gaming purposes; thus there is huge scope for diverse playable characters.
Koda: As mentioned above, these are rare assets and are a set of the latest NFT characters that have a vital role. They are 10,000 rare ‘race of celestials’ that possess unique traits and have a high value in the Metaverse.
The information on Kodas is somewhat secret and remains somewhat of a mystery. However, going by trailer and pitch deck details, one can deduce that they are the ‘Primal beings’ who usher us into the ‘Otherside.’
According to the lore:
Kodas channeled their cosmic energy into transforming the last microverse into “our dimension.” This microverse is known as the Otherside. Not wanting the Otherside to be barren and willing to go to any length to keep the universe in balance, the Kodas drew bored apes and other NFTs into the Metaverse. One can find the following NFTs in the flying submarine/spaceship in the trailer:
- MAYC – Mutant Ape Yacht Club
- World of Women
It is difficult to explain how the Otherside Metaverse works; however, by knowing how each component works in this ecosystem, you’ll get a brief idea of how it works.
How it’s different from the usual Metaverse?
Both the Otherside Metaverse and Metaverse offer immersive virtual experiences. However, they differ in their underlying technology, governance structure, and community features. The Otherside Metaverse focuses on blockchain technology, decentralized ownership, and democratic decision-making, while the Metaverse focuses on immersive gameplay, virtual economies, and socializing with others.
To understand how the Otherside Metaverse differs from others, one must first examine how their virtual lands ‘Otherdeeds’ are classified:
Interesting storylines: One of the fascinating aspects of Otherside is the folklore around Koda. The Kodas are accountable for taking us to the Otherside Metaverse, and one must be careful in that environment. The rest of the information about Kodas is still a mystery and has not been revealed.
Various land perks: There is a diverse range of plots available in the Otherside Metaverse. In fact, Otherdeeds have 5 various arenas, such as:
- Cosmic dream
- Infinite expanse
- Chemical goo
- Rainbow atmos
- Biogenic swamp
Each of these lands has unique aspects and resources that are related to it and also includes distinct artifacts.
Open data kits: Also known as ODK, these kits help users allow users to create and expand their plots on the platform. One can argue that it is a great opportunity to create unique lands or plots. Furthermore, users can also customize their avatars along with games, environments, and other features that shape their experience.
$APE Coin: The holders of this coin own special rights and also possess the authority to vote and make a decision on various aspects, such as the allocation of funds, establishing rules, and so on. Additionally, the owners can also get some utilities and access to special features.
Partnership with improbable: The Otherside Metaverse, which is linked to the M2 Network, allows users to create customized avatars that assist them in gaining new experiences. Furthermore, this partnership enables thousands of users to play simultaneously.
The Otherside metaverse is a brand new metaverse platform that has been associated with the Bored Ape Yacht Club ecosystem. This platform aims to provide a superior game experience to the players with the help of powerful tools. As a result, one can look forward to having new experiences and adventures on this platform.
However, one must note that this platform is still in its infancy, and detailed information about its workings and components is not known. The promotions by the founders, however, are gaining a lot of traction and promising favorable prospects for its growth.
