What even is this?
Cryptovoxels is a virtual world built on the ethereum block chain. The world consists of a city called Origin City, which has streets, that are owned by The Corporation, and parcels, that are owned by individual people. If you have an ethereum wallet, you can buy a parcel.
What can parcel owners do?
Parcel owners can build on their parcel. They can add and remove blocks (voxels) and features on their parcels. They can also make their parcel a sandbox parcel, which makes it free for anyone to build on.
Features include things such as audio, buttons, images, voxel models, text, polytext (3D text), and gifs.

How can I get started?
You can explore the world even without an ethereum wallet or a parcel - just go straight to play and see what you find.
If you want to try your hand at building, you have three main options:
- Purchase a parcel of your own and build on that
- Build on one of the available sandbox parcels
- Use a space! Free editable non-grid space - under your account settings
Building parcels is done completely in the browser, you don't have to use your coding skills, just click to place blocks and build your parcel.
Buying your own parcel
You can buy a parcel from OpenSea. Once you own a parcel:
- Make sure you have metamask unlocked and then click sign in above
- Go to your parcel from the parcel list and click visit

How does this use Ethereum?
Can I resell my property?
Yes, you can resell your property using OpenSea.
I bought a parcel but it's not showing up under my account. Help!
Sometimes the app misses the update to the contract. In that case, find your parcel on the map, then go to your parcel and click the 🐙 button to refresh the parcel's ownership record from the contract. You can also use visit thecontract on etherscan to confirm you are the ownerOf your parcel. Jump on discord if you can't get things straightened out.
