This proposal aims to address and reconsider the limitations currently imposed on “Worlds” within the Decentraland platform. These restrictions have ostensibly been put in place to maintain the value of land parcels within Genesis City. However, this practice contradicts the initial purpose of Worlds, which was to lower the barrier to entry and encourage a broader creator community. This proposal argues that the existing restrictions on Worlds do not enhance the value of Genesis City, and moreover, devalue the overall platform.
Decentraland offers a unique blend of virtual real estate and content creation, providing opportunities for users to own land, create, and share content. To encourage more inclusivity and wider participation, Decentraland introduced the concept of “Worlds.” Worlds were meant to allow creators to develop and share content without owning land in Genesis City. This innovative feature has the potential to invite more creators into the ecosystem, fostering community engagement and platform growth.
Despite the promising prospects Worlds offer, current limitations make them less useful than they could be. These restrictions include non-accessibility or being hidden from the broader Decentraland community. These limitations ostensibly exist to preserve the value and exclusivity of Genesis City land parcels, yet they conflict with the initial intent behind introducing Worlds.
The hypothesis underlying this proposal is straightforward: making Worlds less useful will not make Genesis City more valuable. Instead, it hinders the value and potential growth of the Decentraland platform as a whole.
Immediate Removal of Restrictions: Lift the imposed restrictions on Worlds in the Places dApp, to make them discoverable for all users.
Increased User Engagement: More creators would be able to share their creations, enhancing the overall ecosystem.
The restrictions on Worlds neither enhance the value of Genesis City nor promote the core philosophy of Decentraland, which is decentralization and open participation. Removing these arbitrary limitations will likely result in a more engaged, dynamic, and valuable ecosystem for all stakeholders involved.
