Description

Cryptovoxels is a virtual world built by Nolan Consulting, an independent game developer based in Wellington, New Zealand.

History

Cryptovoxels started as a project to build a metaverse (ala Snowcrash or Ready Player One) on the web. It followed on from the authors earlier work on SceneVR and A-FrameVR. Upon realising the potential of a virtual world were land ownership was recorded on the Ethereum blockchain (using an ERC721 token), the author started full speed at building a user-editable world that doesn't require programming knowledge.

The project was first released behind a secret beta key in May 2018. The first land sales were made to the authors friends and advisors and June 2018, and then to early adopters through the OpenSea cryptocollectibles marketplace. Betakey was removed and land sales were opened up to all comers in July 2018.

Quotes

I'm a firm believer that the next stage of the internet will look something like Cryptovoxels
 — Nick Chapman - Indigorenderer.com
No other blockchain metaverse is more accessible for content creators than Cryptovoxels. In-world voxel building is a proven approach, and as any metaverse is only as good as its content, Cryptovoxels is one to watch.

The building tools ... has made are what set this project apart from others. cryptovoxels accessibility and straightforward design are intuitive enough that my 6 year old son is already building for me!
