Should the following $111,000 grant in the In-World Content category be approved?
This is a continuation of the CROSSVERSE project by DAPPCRAFT. Our focus is on working with traffic in metaverses and attracting players to locations.
We built a smart wearable called Hyp-0 which is kind of a key for players to CROSSVERSE ecosystem within metaverses.
111,000 USD in DAI
As part of our previous grant goals in February 2023, we conducted alpha tests of the Exploration mode (Single-player) with great success. We received a lot of positive feedback from the community. 12 players completed 400 quests. The six landowners got 400 visits to their locations.

In August 2023, we were the first to release smart wearables on the Decentraland marketplace, and everything sold out within hours.
In September 2023 we launched a Tournament mode (Multiplayer mode, a PvP gameplay). It’s a multiplayer tactical-strategic action game in augmented reality format, the first of its kind in Decentraland. You should see these battles! Players can build their networks and hack other player’s networks.
Players spent 100s of hours playing, built 29 521 nodes, and made 62 435 connections. This is only with 30 unique active players during two weeks’ time. The tournament exceeded all our expectations in terms of player engagement. Therefore, we’ve decided to delve deeper into its improvement.

We run tournaments on different locations in Decentraland on maps with different sizes. This is what the latest map looks like. Different colors are different players. Dot’s - flag user placed and connections between dots are links.
People build networks, hack other networks, and explore the territory while playing. One of the locations we did the tournament was the Consensys. Players got engaged with the scene and received cool wearables.
This is how CROSSVERSE brings traffic to the Decentraland’s locations.
- PvP & Exploration improvements
We take a constant lean approach to developing and testing new features with quick release. We plan to constantly sync with the community and implement/remove PvP features based on feedback.
- Laboratory Front end and Back end
Upgrade Hyp-0 rarity and visual elements. Below you can see our concept for visual skins, but as we have to do with reality - DCL SDK has not allowed us to do it exactly as we want so it will be simpler but still we and our community love and want skins!
This project has gone through a challenging journey. Our grant was frozen a few months after the start due to uncertainties with the release of smart wearables by the Decentraland Foundation. Miraculously, we managed to retain the core team and continue the project until the grant was unfrozen.
This affected our original roadmap, where we had to change priorities and sacrifice some goals
Our previous grant ends on October 31st, and we need funding to continue bringing our metaverse dreams and vision to life for all of you.
