The first-ever fully decentralized virtual world, owned and governed by its community of users, opens its gates to the public.
After thousands of hours of development from a dedicated team, over 100,000 parcels of LAND transacted and 25,000+ Avatars created, Decentraland – built on the blockchain and the first-ever decentralized virtual world – is going live to the public.
The launch includes the establishment of the Decentraland DAO leading to a decentralized ledger of ownership for virtual real estate, full decentralization of the world’s infrastructure (communications between users in a peer-to-peer fashion, and the serving of content), the already existing and constantly evolving protocol for describing the content of each LAND parcel, and, most importantly, public access to the very best the Metaverse has to offer.
From 20.02.2020, no single agent will have the power to modify the rules of the software, curate LAND content, modify the economics of MANA, upgrade the LAND smart contract unilaterally, or prevent others from accessing the world, among other decentralization features.
Get involved in the virtual gaming event of the year
To celebrate the Public Launch, Decentraland is hosting a four-day celebration, the highlight of which is a Treasure Hunt inside Decentraland’s first metropolis, Genesis City.
Decentraland has joined forces with big names in the crypto space to offer valuable game item NFTs, crypto tokens and in-game versions of products (redeemable for real-life products) for visitors to find and collect.
We’ll be announcing this exciting group of partners as we move closer to launch.
The product of over two years of development, testing and creative contributions from Decentraland’s 100,000+ community members, the Public Launch is just the beginning of an exciting new era for Decentraland.
