Unstoppable Domain : Building Decentralized Digital Identities for the Open Metaverse

 

Metaverse Summit is honored to present Unstoppable Domain – The #1 provider of NFT domains on the blockchain

Unstoppable Domains is on a mission to return the power of the internet to people. To accomplish this, we are creating NFT domains that put you back in control of your data. These aren’t just traditional domains, these are domains with superpowers.

 

NFT domain and decentralized digital identity for Metaverses
TLDR; NFT domains are domains that live on a public blockchain and give users complete ownership of their stored data. The main benefits to owning one are simplifying crypto transactions by replacing wallet addresses with the domain name and easily creating and hosting websites on web3.
If you haven’t heard yet, NFT domains are the newest kids on the block(chain) and they have the power to change what we know of as the internet today. But before we dive into all that goodness, let’s take a step back to run through what traditional domains are and define NFTs — that way, you can truly understand the superpowers behind NFT domains.
Typically, you interact with a traditional domain when you type the address (like Twitter.com) into your browser. But did you know traditional domains were originally built to do so much more on the internet? Think of functionalities like email and payments. Hard to believe, right?
But as we can see, traditional domains haven’t progressed much beyond displaying websites. This might be because traditional domains have been controlled by centralized servers since the internet was created. This made it much more difficult for developers to innovate on top of that technology.
Luckily for us, the tech that powers NFT domains (a.k.a. blockchains) opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for us on the web!
What is an NFT?
NFT (non-fungible token): a digital certificate of authenticity used to assign and verify ownership of a unique digital or physical asset. Unlike fungible tokens, NFTs are not interchangeable with one another.
Okay, so how does blockchain technology make these NFT domains so special?
Great question! NFT domains are essentially a suite of smart contracts, which is a fancy term to describe software written on a public blockchain. This means that instead of one company controlling your data online, the power is transferred back to you as the user. And by being built on blockchains, anyone can look at the data stored there, creating a level of ultimate openness and transparency. 
On top of that, there is the benefit of enhanced security — only you hold the power to make updates to your NFT domain, which minimizes worries about servers getting hacked or domains getting stolen.
All that to say, blockchain superpowers give everyone a safer way to surf the internet while also giving control back to you over what gets shared and where it gets shared.
Cool, I’m starting to get the power of blockchain but am still not 100% sure what I can DO with an NFT domain?
We were just about to get to that! To quickly summarize, here are your domain’s superpowers (with more exciting new features on the way):
Simplify crypto transactions by replacing all your complicated wallet addresses with your domain name as your username.
Use your domain to receive 275+ coins and tokens across multiple blockchain networks. 
Login to apps with your domain name as your universal web3 username.
Unlike traditional domains, fully own and control your domain. You buy it once, you own it for life!
Easily create and host websites, ranging from personal websites to NFT galleries. 

 

Why did we choose Unstoppable Domain?

 

Below are 5 reasons you need an Unstoppable Domain that range from the superpowers they provide compared to regular domains (such as also functioning as a wallet address) to the unique benefit of never having to pay renewal fees.

 

#1) Zero Renewal Fees

 

Unlike traditional .com domains, you fully own and control your Unstoppable Domain, so you never have to pay renewal fees. Ever. You buy it once, you own it for life!

 

#2) Seamless Crypto Payments

 

No longer fear your payments getting lost in the ether (pun intended). Instead of copy and pasting your wallet address (which is similar to a bank account number and can look like: 0xc6b0562605d35ee710138402b878ffe6f2e23807), use an Unstoppable Domain as your one-stop-shop username to store all of your wallet addresses for sending and receiving crypto. 

 

#3) Multi-Chain Compatibility

 

Your NFT domain comes with the superpower to receive over 275 supported coins and tokens, with many more on the way! Now you can navigate crypto transactions with ease, regardless of the blockchain network. Browse the complete list of supported cryptocurrencies here.

 

#4) Decentralized Websites

 

Want to create a website on the decentralized web? Create one in just a few clicks with our pre-made templates. Own any NFTs? Create a gallery-style website to show off your favorite collectibles as your collection grows. We’ll be adding more features and templates in the future, so stay tuned here.

 

#5) Own Your Identity on Web3

 

As the world shifts to web3, it’ll be more important than ever to own your part of the new internet. By owning an Unstoppable Domain, you’ll not only help progress the digital world, you’ll ensure your identity is secured for the next wave of technology.

[Metaverse Summit] Blockchain Gaming Guilds, decentralized community beyond Play-to-earn

 

With the emergence of the Play-to-Earn business model, comes a new type of gaming guilds. By playing various crypto games, a guild is able to obtain as many NFTs as possible from various sources, and most of them aim to create their own NFT market if they did not do so already. With the launch of tokens, Crypto guilds have the potential to solve the centralization problem that traditional guilds have.

Mirko from Unix Gaming shared with us the creation and community of an emerging gaming guild.

There is a big difference between traditional gaming guilds and crypto game guilds. While the traditional type is limited to the game, and it can rise or fall with it, the crypto variant aims to become a platform to support new gamers.

 

 

00:00 intro

00:21 Today we have a miracle from Unix.

01:10 Tell us about what kind of game did you play before crypto gaming?

04:41 What is Unix today?

[Metaverse Masterclass] How Luxury Fashion broke into the Metaverse

“Metaverse Masterclass” is a series of reports, articles and interviews from experts around different topics in Metaverse. This is an article by Laura Pan, originally appeared in Resilience of Luxury Companies in Times of Change

Demna Gvasalia, the current creative director of Balenciaga, belongs to a new wave of creative directors that includes Kim Jones at Christian Dior, Matthew Williams at Givenchy, and Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, all of them hand-picked by the leaders of luxury conglomerates to bring new life to heritage brands. Gvasalia, the founder of the cult streetwear brand Vetements, has always been very forward thinking, and in a class of his own. His appointment as creative director of famed couture house Balenciaga in 2015, came as a surprise as it was thought to indicate that Kering SA owner Francios Henri-Pinault could be trying to catch on to the streetwear trend. However, Gvasalia has proven that tearing up the rule book can be both innovative and profitable. In the 6 years at the helm of Balenciaga, Gvasalia had brought so much value to the maison, that it overtook Gucci as the most search brand in 2021, according to Lyst. All of this was attributed to Gvasalia’s out of the box ideas, which caught the attention of Meta (formerly Facebook) in a tweet; days after the announcement of its rebranding, by asking Balenciaga for dress code in the Metaverse.

(Screenshot from Twitter, Meta Oct 29, 2021)

It all started in 2020, when fashion companies were looking for innovative ways to showcase their upcoming collections. While most brands resorted to the classic livestream fashion shows, Balenciaga announced that it will show its fall/winter 2021 collection as a fully interactive video game. Gvasalia and his team at Balenciaga created an online role-playing game (RPG) titled Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow, where players take a journey into a dystopic world set in New York in the year 2032. Attendees of the fashion show were able to follow the main character as they explore the realm. The character follows the illuminated arrows through a series of zones, and encounters non-playable characters (NPC) — models wearing the latest collection. This digital realm mimics game play, where you move from one level to the next, with each level designed according to a different theme. What Balenciaga created was out of this world, or rather a parallel universe where reality meets virtual reality. The show was an astounding success, as it resonated deeply with its target audience because they now believed the brand truly understood what was relatable to them.

(screenshot from YouTube, Balenciaga Dec 8, 2020)

Luxury fashion has always been about pushing the limits of creativity and finding newer ways to engage with the end customer, but Gvasalia found a revolutionary format to showcase that creativity while connecting with Balenciaga’s target audience. The dystopia Balenciaga created for Afterworld demonstrated how digital realms (Metaverse) can offer a kind of escape. This was the first taste of the potential fashion and luxury brands have in the metaverse.

Since 2020 has been a time of great distress; with many of us facing new feelings of constraint and isolation. It is games like Nintendo’s Animal Crossing that transported players away from their mundane zoom meetings and daunting housework to another world. More than a distraction, Animal Crossing allowed people to travel vicariously to different islands and socialize with friends from all over the world. Players were able to connect both on Nintendo’s online platform as well as Discord to have a full experience, e.g.: I would be playing my character in Italy, and visiting my sister’s island, but she was physically located in Australia. It also gave players the opportunity to dress up in designer clothing as a way to express themselves freely. While fashion and gaming collaborations are not new, cue EA Games’ The Sims and their collaborations with H&M and Moschino in 2007 and 2019, respectively. It is the ability to connect with one another, not only online but through other platforms such as social media, forums and livechats that has allowed a kind of synergy between fashion and gaming. Still, today only a handful of brands have ventured into this segment, most notably Louis Vuitton and League of Legends for the 2019 World Championship held in Paris. Other brands slowly followed suit, starting with Valentino and Marc Jacobs with Animal Crossing, Gucci and Pokemon Go, and more recently Balenciaga and Moncler for Fortnite.

Luxury brands’ late entry into the gaming sector was not a lack of vision, but rather the lack of complimentary between the two industries. Many would assume that fashion could only exist in dress-up games, yet they have completely neglected the profitable skins segment on all online games’ platforms. According to Forbes, 69% of Fortnite players spend money on the game (Fortnite is actually free to play, but you can buy battle passes which offers more bonuses during the gameplay), and the average expenditure per player is about US$85.In 2018, almost 60% of Fortnite’s revenue came directly from skins. It wasn’t until 2021, when brands such as Ferrari, Balenciaga and Moncler decided to be part of the Fortnite repertoire. Even then, it was Louis Vuitton that pioneered luxury’s entry into esports. The brand had been involved with sports in the past — since 2010 it has designed the trophy case for the FIFA World Cup — so its 2019 announcement that it would be creating the case for that year’s League of Legends World Championship in Paris should have come as no surprise. After all, Louis Vuitton was known for its unexpected collaborations, teaming up with cult streetwear brand Supreme in 2017. This time, it worked with Riot Games (the developer of League of Legends) to dress hip-hop group True Damage in Louis Vuitton skins for their opening ceremony performance at the championship. Following the success of this alliance, Louis Vuitton created a League of Legends capsule collection of 40 pieces designed by womenswear creative director Nicolas Ghesquière.

(Source: Louisvuitton.com, Nov 14, 2019)

League of Legends is one of the most-played multiplayer games, with around 115 million monthly players worldwide. It is also the most-played game in esports worldwide. The esports industry is worth US$950 million as of 2020 and is predicted to reach US$1.6 billion by 2023, according to Statista.This is a huge opportunity for luxury brands, considering the vast exposure it provides. Unlike any other platform, the esports stage has a dedicated and concentrated viewership composed of people of all ages and various financial backgrounds. More recently, we are seeing a rise in newfound wealth among gamers and live streamers. Current estimates suggest that top streamers earn upwards of US$500,000 a month, potentially outpacing high earners in traditional career paths. In April 2020, in the middle of the global pandemic lockdown, Travis Scott, an American rapper, drew a crowd of 27 million players to a digital live show on Fortnite’s platform. On the day of the show, Fortnite offered unique skins that could only be purchased prior to attending the live concert.

Even till this day, players of Fortnite are complaining about missing out on the skin and upset that it was never made available again. It was because of this, Fortnite restructured their strategy with Ariana Grande’s Rift Tour which was held from the 6th — 8th August 2021 over several time slots.

(Screenshot of actual game play on Fortnite, Aug 6, 2021)

Ariana Grande’s rift tour was the perfect example of what the Metaverse could hold for fashion and luxury. Minutes before the show, players have the opportunity to choose and purchase skins and emotes. Then as players wait in the lobby before being transported to the concert, player could connect with one another either through their Discord Group, private calls or livestream to discuss or provide commentary of the events. Now, imagine if this was a virtual fashion show — just like the one Balenciaga did in November 2020. It would really transport all of us, not just the fashion influencers, celebrities, and journalist, into the metaverse to experience the brand-new collection.

  • Julien Bouteloup, Founder / CEO Stake Capital
  • Ivan de Lastours, Blockchain/Crypto Lead at Bpifrance
  • Sebastien Couture, Host Epicenter Podcast, Angel Investor

Metaverse Summit presents:

Blockchain “Made in France” Panel Discussion

Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and Web3 are hotter topics than ever before. More and more “crypto curious” people have become enticed by the promise of blockchain: some hope to join the ranks of the “crypto-rich”, while others see only scams and hacks and remain curious but skeptical. But the fact remains that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies continue to be adopted by companies across many industries: to paraphrase Marc Andreesen, crypto is eating the world. With the recent emergence of the Metaverse thesis, the vision of a blockchain-based Web3 is closer than ever before to mass adoption.

You may not be aware, but France boasts homegrown crypto heroes in several distinct fields. These industry leaders are advancing the democratization and adoption of crypto not only in France but more importantly around the world. In this panel, we have gathered five French entrepreneurs, investors and influencers in the sector, each with a different focus.

They are well positioned to insightfully discuss topics including:

  • – What is DeFi (Decentralized Finance) and why does it matter?
  • – What will the financial market look like in 20-30 years?
  • – How do crypto, blockchain and NFTs fit into the “Metaverse” thesis?
  • – How is crypto currently regulated in France and under “European Sovereignty”?
