Decentraland Districts – district0x

Decentraland Districts Powering marketplaces for the metaverse

One of our favorite projects in the space, Decentraland, is an open source initiative to build a traversable virtual reality world. Within Decentraland, habitants can claim land as their own and build anything they wish upon it, from 3d artwork to fully immersive applications such as a VR poker room, for other inhabitants of the world to discover and enjoy.

With a great deal of interest surrounding the project already and a finite amount of parcels available to be claimed, one can imagine the need for a secondary market for land ownership and rentals emerging quickly. We are excited to announce today, in cooperation with the Decentraland team, our intent to build this marketplace and many more on the district0x Network.

Markets on the network, also referred to as districts, are built upon a shared framework comprised of smart contracts and front-end libraries which provide the functionality necessary to operate communal marketplaces such as applications like Airbnb, eBay, and Uber.

The Decentraland team submitted a proposal for the creation of a secondary marketplace for real estate within...

This is a strange time, the largest cryptocurrency has become a toxic asset. The emperor wears no clothes, pointing this out lowers your virtue in other peoples eyes. That does not change the fact that the emperor is naked, there is greater virtue in standing by the truth.
