MetaMundo launches the first 3D NFT marketplace for the metaverse
MetaMundo partners with a curated selection of leading 3D creators active in design in the metaverse and in real life, such as renowned artist NFT Dutchtide, American modernist architect Luis Fernandezand metaverse architect Mila Lolli. At the start of launch, MetaMundo will have weekly NFT drops hosted. Each has an in-depth editorial interview.
“MetaMundo’s vision is to facilitate a beautifully designed, interoperable and open metaverse – an immersive 3D social internet, where anyone can own and build parts of it using blockchain technology. Market launch is our first major step towards realization of this vision, said Finn Hansenone of the co-founders of MetaMundo. “For the first time, we’ve enabled metaverse users to collect high-quality 3D scenes, created as NFTs, for use in many virtual environments.”
The first 3D NFT drops include: A Japanese Zen art gallery inspired by brutalist architecture, by the Netherlands-based by artist Dutchtide, and a sprawling oceanfront luxury villa, reminiscent of the work of Adolf Loos and Mies van der Roheby Luis Fernandez. The gallery will be auctioned in 1/1 edition; the villa will be available for purchase from an edition of 100.
A marketplace designed for 3D NFTs and interoperability
MetaMundo has developed its own Ethereum-based NFT specifically designed for 3D files and metaverse interoperability, solving a number of issues with 3D files, metaverse, and NFTs. Thanks to a flexible metadata structure, multiple 3D files can be included in an NFT. Each NFT sold on MetaMundo includes a set of 3D files compatible with Decentraland, The Sandbox, Cryptovoxels, Spatial, VRChat, and more. Over time, new 3D files may be added to the NFT that are compatible with emerging metaverse environments. MetaMundo takes the 3D file developed by the creator and puts it through a conversion and optimization pipeline, resulting in the creation of multiple 3D files optimized for the metaverse.
Finn Hansenco-founder of MetaMundo evokes this solution: “We solve the lack of NFT interoperability with a unique architecture we’ve developed that features a versatile and extensible NFT metadata structure, supporting multiple versions of 3D files and providing the ability to add new file versions later. additional to enable future-proofing as 3D technology evolves.”
“MetaMundo responds to the immense demand for creating dynamic environments and virtual cities within the metaverse, by providing a scalable and creative solution, which is also compatible with The Sandbox”, said Sebastien Borget of the sandbox.
Intuitive user experience for collecting 3D NFTs
Most of today’s NFT marketplaces were originally designed and built to collect 2D NFTs. With the rapid growth of the metaverse and 3D virtual environments, MetaMundo has designed and built a user experience specifically geared towards collecting 3D NFTs. The MetaMundo marketplace allows users to preview and interact with the 3D files bundled in each NFT, via an immersive and interactive viewer, before collectors make a purchase.
“With the launch of MetaMundo, we are excited about the possibility of being able to collect 3D scenes that work across multiple metaverses,” said Everyrealm’s TJ Kawamura. “MetaMundo’s unique NFTs feature makes it incredibly easy for anyone to build on our terrain and create engaging metaverse environments from today’s leading 3D designers.”
MetaMundo is the first NFT marketplace entirely dedicated to 3D scenes and assets for the metaverse. Each 3D NFT sold by MetaMundo is interoperable between virtual environments and games. MetaMundo partners with selected creators active in design, art and architecture.
