Name of Project: Slothtopia
Slothtopia is a 3D metaverse that was originally deployed on the Fantom blockchain. We have taken a “tech first” approach the building a metaverse game. We launched the first in-game avatar mint. You can mint in game and then play with the avatar minted. In addition we allow interoperability between our avatars and the avatars from other projects. This allows anyone on Harmony who has a metaverse ready avatar to allow their community to use that avatar in Slothtopia
We also allow for other projects to mint their NFTs in our metaverse. Their NFT will render in game for immediate use by their community.
In addition, we have condos/galleries that are ownable and fully customizable by our users. Hang NFTs on the wall, play mini-games, use your custom avatar, furnish with in-game assets, invite friends over, exit into the main world. This is much like a mix on OnCyber and Portals. Land sales are coming next. Same fully customizable interface as the condos/gallery where land owners can use in game assets (or build their own) to customize their land. Land owners also get full access to the functionalities built in game (like minting).
We would want to build a Harmony downtown area where we feature Harmony and it’s top projects in custom builds. The builds will have functionality built in per the projects request. Allow for mints, trading on DEXs, or curated galleries. A place for the Harmony community to gather, learn, and interact. We would also launch a new collection of avatars and in game assets that are all themed accordingly to the Harmony blockchain
We currently have a community of over 3,000. Over 1,500 MAU in game in our prototype release. Our team consists of 13 people, with seven being daily contributors to the project. The project was self-funded by the creator and then we received more funds through our avatar mint.
Our next steps (besides the condo/galleries and land sales) are to build an in-game DEX/AMM that allows for NFT staking as well. This will be in game and also a standalone webGL build (a first of it’s kind). We think gamifying a DeFi protocol could bring in new users and ease the difficulty of using DeFi for beginners.
Metrics for success:
We want to break the 10k MAU mark for users in-game. Would like to become the first webGL built DEX/AMM to reach $50m TVL
