On October 28th 2021 Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook’s plans to become a “Metaverse”, officially changing their name and brand to Meta. What he forgot to tell you is that this concept was not original and other projects had already built incredible Metaverse technologies of their own — pushing the boundaries of how we understand and interact with virtual worlds, cryptocurrencies, and online gaming communities. Enter the LeapNverse!
LeapN does “metaverse” differently, instead of pixelated 8-bit graphics, like we are accustomed to from projects like Sandbox, or Cryptovoxels, (as made famous by iconic games like Minecraft and Roblox), LeapN harnesses the power of Unreal Engine to bring crisp clean graphics, that give PS5 and Xbox One a run for their money. Who else has this?
One of the most interesting aspects of Web3 and metaverse projects is that they are intrinsically tied to the user’s ownership of digital goods and services; referred to as NFT’s (if you aren’t familiar with Non Fungible Tokens and owning digital assets, read this first). LeapN brings some very interesting opportunities for monetization of complex ecosystems developed by the community and its growing network of users through these groundbreaking concepts enabled by digital ownership.
There are 603 NFT virtual worlds in LeapN which you can buy, trade and sell in various NFT marketplaces called Founders Deeds. A Founders Deed world contains 500 acres of virtual real estate waiting to be turned into the metaverse you’ve always dreamed of. Founders Deeds are perfect for creators looking to build out a whole experience for their project, game, or personal artistic vision. The owner can build and develop their world to the extent their imagination can be driven, through the LeapN world builder module, an easy and intuitive pallet for creating 3D worlds [link to video]. If you want your Web3 avatar to fly around the world with a Jetpack, even that can be owned as an NFT in LeapN. The Founders Deeds can also be fractionalized into smaller 5 acre parcels known as Alpha Plots.
The real magic here is the backend. LeapN is unrolling a decentralized, scalable platform for these 603 different metaverses, with the capabilities of hosting thousands of players at the same time in any given world, as well as Governance/in-game token that can be used for selling and purchasing goods and services. This architecture allows NFT’s to be utilized as the literal key to teleport in and out of different worlds and access exclusive features seamlessly.
The community members and holders of LeapN NFT’s will be included in its native governance token, $LEAPN, allocation. The distribution is projected on the pie chart below. The tokenomics are still being finalized and not all details, nor utilities, of the $LEAPN token have been disclosed at this time. Stay tuned for exciting future updates.
LeapN already has 5 groundbreaking NFT projects currently building out their own experiences. One of them is a very special, native project to the LeapN ecosystem, called Machine Elves. Before getting into the other 4 projects, Ape Gang, MEFaverse, Auralia, and Metatravelers, let me tell you a little bit about Machine Elves.
Machine Elves is a 10,000 PFP (profile picture) NFT collection scheduled for public launch in Q3 2022. The Machine Elves art brings a different flavour to the aesthetics of PFP collections — with over 350 hand drawn traits and will add some exclusive utility to holders in the LeapNverse, within their own exclusive world. Stay tuned for more information and join us on weekly discord channel calls, where we discuss and finalise the mechanics for whitelist/allowlist and future utilities, like a lottery system for holders to win LeapN NFT drops and wearables/cosmetics.
Method Man, of the rap group “Wu-Tang Clan”, has introduced “The MEFaverse” on LeapN. The Mefaverse is a metaverse world, Wu York City, where holders get to experience a graphic novel in a completely unique way to how it’s ever been done, and not simply read it. The project combines all things Hip Hop, skateboarding, and comic books in a format that speaks to all ages.
Ape Gang is currently building out Ape City in LeapNverse, where the owners of this 10k PFP collection will be able to let their ape avatars run wild and join gangs to fight for rewards in Gang Wars (currently being held in tournament style bracket system on discord and web browser) as we eagerly await the completion of Ape City functionality. Currently, you can go play around in this world now if you own an ape.
Vol. 1 of MetaTravelers will showcase 7777 avatars of the Nibiru guild. These NFT’s will also act as an access key to unlock future events, discord channels and gamified experiences in the Metaverse. MetaTravelers are building out a universe of guilds from different worlds of the Metaverse. Each MetaTraveler guild will be its own collection with unique traits and designs.
Aurallia is an immersive sound adventure metaverse game, a collaborative NFT experience and community-driven platform, that aims to create true utility on the blockchain. This project is doing everything different. Aurallia hasn’t sold an NFT yet, is building a module first, and then offering early access. They’re not making promises or creating hype, instead they are working hard to a dream. Aurallia created a world to honor the community. Each city, town and module on the map is named after a real life person in the NFT community. They gifted shops months ago for free to those who arrived in the discord and participated. Auralia is giving back before they even gain a dime.
The unique architecture, platform, and in game elements of LeapNverse, coupled with the amazing early partnerships, native NFT’s and future Token Generation Event (TGE) under a DAO structure with in game commerce utility solidifies LeapN as one of the most underrated lesser known opportunities in the cryptoverse. Not only does this game have all the right ingredients for a really fun and endless gaming experience, but also presents some attractive beta as a lesser known “dark horse” Metaverse platform — being one of the few early pioneers in this space. Come join us and help us imagine, build, and monetize what the future will become.
TLDR Why LeapN is unique:
- The tech and architecture
- LeapN is a metaverse Platform and Network not just a metaverse game
- Other metaverses are individual games, LeapN is 603 unique game worlds
- The amount of land you get
- The clean crisp graphics
- The customization and building you get (ex. Build a concert venue and sell tickets)
- DAO with Governance/Commerce Token Generation Event (soon)
- Native and no Native NFT projects
