[DAO: bafkrei] CROSSVERSE: A cross-metaverse play, learn, explore-to-earn game experience

by 0x538ce85ccf6080cec960bc5341787691217c4d97 (Johnny#4d97)

Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Gaming category be approved?

Abstract

DAPPCRAFT has been working with major brands on doing buildings and events and figuring out the problem. There is no clear path for brands to engage a fragmented metaverse audience. Even once a brand gains a metaverse presence, it’s hard to engage users in a fun, gamified experience.

We created a solution, gameplay to direct players to brand locations in Decentraland with smart-wearable technology. We incentivize players by giving tokens, in-game NFTs, and 3rd party NFT rewards for spending time exploring the brand’s virtual locations.

This is the way for everyone coming to Decentraland to have a good experience discovering new amazing places.

Description

DAPPCRAFT is the company behind the CROSSVERSE.

CROSSVERSE is part of the play2earn incubation program from Decentraland for the past 5 months. We are asking for a grant to execute Phase II of the project.

Meet Hyp-0

A cute digital pet that helps players to explore the metaverse and have fun!

Recently Decentraland announced a new game asset – “smart wearable”. Hyp-0 is a creation of DAPPCRAFT’s 5 months of deep research & development of this technology’s capabilities.

We are convinced that he will inspire many other teams to create new unique experiences, like the one we do in CROSSVERSE.

Hyp-0 takes different forms:

  • Idle: Waits for commands from the player
  • Navigate: Shows the direction to brand locations for the player in Decentraland
  • Portal: Show the portal to the player which teleports close to brand locations
  • Claim: The player charging highlighted zone and engaging with brand metaverse location. After the job is done player claims rewards in tokens and NFTs.

Game loop

Marketing platform

Brands buy visits in locations to promote their business in Metaverse. This distributes tasks to the players to visit locations.

Search

A player harvesting locations with Hyp-0. Gets rewards in XVRS token in-game NFTs and brand-specific NFTs as rewards

Laboratory

A portal to upgrade Hyp-0 and boosts productivity by spending XVRS and in-game NFTs

Marketplace

Marketplace to trade in-game NFTs and Hyp-0’s

Phase I

Progress over the last 6 months:

  • Hyp-0 game concept
  • Created 2d and 3d forms for all states
  • Basic animations for a smart wearable
  • Backend server architecture
  • APIs for Decentraland Hyp-0 gameplay
  • Front-end for Decentraland Hyp-0 gameplay with 4 modes and transitions
  • Smart contracts for XVRS token, Rewards, Hyp-0 NFT

Use Cases

We are excited to announce that CROSSVERSE partnered with TrustSwap company to bring users to the HQ in Decentraland with Hyp-0 gameplay and incentivize with NFTs.

More use cases are in the negotiation process.

Specification

Hyp-0 is a digital pet (smart-wearable) NFT that enables gameplay in Decentraland.

Laboratory

A place to upgrade your Hyp-0s.

4 RARITY TYPES: Common, Legendary, Epic, Mythic

Every player starts with a common type. Players can upgrade the rarity level.
Requires: XVRS token + NFTs

4 PROPERTIES TO UPGRADE: Navigation, Charging, Storage, Release

Properties can be downgraded to basic levels if Hyp-0 is not active.
Requires: XVRS token + NFTs

Upgrades

The next generation after Mythic enables a secret PvP gameplay.

Future plans. Long-term vision.

The gameplay continues forward and is not limited to Hyp-0. The players will be collecting NFTs which can be used to craft modules and robots. Here is the illustration of technology we developed in DAPPCRAFT which solves the scalability issue.

For land owners

Hyp-0 gameplay brings players to Decentraland locations. This generates traffic and eventually increases the land value.

We are looking for partners who can participate in the alpha launch in the next two months. Please contact me via email: johnny.k@dapp-craft.com if you are interested.

Those who are familiar with Decentraland know that DAPPCRAFT is one of the pioneers involved in metaverse development since the beginning. We are one of the first OG wearables creators and first fashion week participants. We took participation in the creation of the first Emotes Decentraland (the most loved blow-head, for example). The others may know us for creating multiple unique experiences like the one we did for our clients and partners - the first animated mini-movie 12 minutes long for NASA to celebrate Apollo 11 mission with the first man on the moon event.

Roadmap and milestones

We can see CROSSVERSE as a successful business and an important part of metaverse development. Our business model is dependent on Decentraland success and it will take time to build a positive cash flow. For now, we have to rely on grants and investments. Its been almost a year since DAPPCRAFT started this project and invested a lot of time and resources into it.

Whatever we do our core values are to explore limits and expanding the boundaries of what is possible. Inspire our friends, colleagues, and other industry pioneers.

CROSSVERSE is just started. We have plenty of surprises in the future! At the moment we ask for community support.

Wow the demo footage is spectacular. Great concept and game mechanics. The full res models are :star_struck:

Would there be any way for communities or users to build their own quests and offer their own rewards or will it be restricted to ones created by dapp-craft?

I am wildly impressed both by the presentation and the quality of the written grant proposal. I have no doubt that your team will be able to deliver everything promised and MORE!

This is what this space is all about. Pushing boundaries, innovative thinking, and most importantly, putting the community and Decentraland first. Other projects will see what you have done here and be inspired to push their own boundaries and limitations as well.

All my boxes are checked! When I see projects like this I am reminded how amazing and powerful this community is, and I have no doubt Decentraland will change the world! LFG DappCraft!

When @Frank Showed me this proposal yesterday I was seriously wowed! All the promise and magic of a smart wearable. I can see why DappCraft was selected as one of the first preferred vendors to roll out the smart wearable tech in Decentraland. World-wide questing will open up the space to everyone. I hope it will create usefulness out of vacant parcels.

Emphatically voting yes for this proposal.
