Ever wondered why you get bored with that profession you loved and have a passion for? Or should I ask why you are beginning to get tired of eating your favorite pasta? I have a simple answer to the” Why”: Lack of spicing.
Sticking to the “Status Quo” is boring, sometimes, spice it up. Don’t go the usual route. Give it a new look, a new way so you can continue to enjoy what you love and won’t feel bored.
Talking about spicing things up, Realm has taken its time and resources to introduce a new way to showcase NFTs in such a way you can create unique and customizable virtual ecosystems with NFTs. A unique way to own genetically encoded living NFT pets and travel between realms through augmented reality (AR)
What is Realm?
Realm is a cross-chain metaverse, built on the Ethereum network where most of the valuable NFTs exist. It is a community-driven open-source project that supports NFT collectors and creators to express their artistic vision most purely. A project that encourages NFT collectors to create their magical virtual realm.
It is a virtual space powered by the Godot open source game engine, giving a creator complete control over their realm. A Realm can be minted as an ERC-1155 with an address on the Ethereum blockchain. They can be traded, securitized, and hold other ERC-721 such as sculptures and objects. As an ERC-1155, It can also hold ERC-20 tokens such as $REALM tokens.
