The pioneering metaspace, Somnium Space, has been at the forefront of blockchain technology. Now, they are preparing to incorporate cross-chain compatibility into their virtual world.
Their first focus is on the Solana blockchain, which will be integrated in early December. As a result, users will have full access to their Solana-based NFTs in the Somnium Space world.This means that interactive avatars and in-game objects will all be supported on VR, PC and WebXR clients.
Somnium Space will greatly benefit from Solana’s efficient blockchain, resulting in NFTs with incredibly low casting fees and ultra-fast transaction times. Of course, this is a much sought after badge of honor as a supporter of eco-friendly networks.
However, Somnium Space’s multi-chain ambitions don’t end there, with work currently underway to bring the NEAR blockchain into the connected family in early 2022. This in turn will open up the meta-universe to a large number of additional assets and their owners.
Somnium Space is currently at the tail end of development to incorporate Polygon, a second tier extension solution, into their local marketplace.
A true cross-chain revolution is coming to the meta-space.
