Moreover, the Somnium Space Metaverse ecosystem is based on Polygon, which is a very good choice for its speed and cost benefits. Additionally, users and gamers can purchase virtual residences and land, and other in-game assets in Somnium Space.
Benefits of Interacting with the Metaverse
Users can also build their places and monetize them within this Metaverse. Like other popular Metaverse ecosystems, it uses nonfungible tokens (NFTs) to give users digital ownership rights.
In this case, Somnium Space partnered with Sony to utilize their 3D model creation technology in 2019. This allows users to create full embodiment avatars of themselves, which Karel Janeček has done.
Furthermore, Somnium Space has also partnered with major crypto exchanges FTX and Gemini for NFT sales. It has its native token called CUBE which has a market cap of $21.6 million.
