Metaverse, as it is more commonly known, is a decentralized virtual world created in 2009. The Metaverse is based on blockchain technology, and it features a user-generated economy and user-created games. Metaverse has been downloaded over 225 million times since its inception, and it has also received investments from some of the biggest names in the tech industry.
The history of Metaverse game development begins with creating the OpenST Metashare in October of 2009. This project was spearheaded by Jack Lu and aimed to create a digital asset platform that could be used to build games online. The OpenST Metashare launched on February 16th, 2010, and it featured the first-ever virtual world named Datacenter 1. Datacenter 1 featured a user-generated economy where users could buy and sell goods and services using digital currency.
Since its inception, Metaverse and NFT game development has seen several prominent updates. On October 17th, 2017, Metaverse unveiled its new blockchain upgrade dubbed Arkittai Version 2. Arditti Version 2 offers enhanced security and scalability for the metaverse network. In addition to these upgrades, Metaverse also released an updated version of Arkitekt’s Mux. The new mux dubbed Mux v3.0 offers the network a much-needed upgrade to enhance its security and scalability. In October 2017, Metaverse became the first blockchain-based virtual world to overthrow its association with UNESCO when it enlisted the support of UN expert Shannon Williams on its behalf in advocacy for digital currency to lift children out of poverty around the world.
