The first in-game NFTs have been minted on Efinity with the launch of the MetaHome NFT collection, immediately usable in MyMetaverse’s full suite of games. MyMetaverse, a game development company specialising in creator-led metaverses with play-and-earn economies, ensured that on launch, the NFTs perform different functions in three different games.
The MetaHome NFTs offer unique gameplay utility in every world they’re recognised. In Infinity Auto, a MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 server, they take the form of a rare vehicle; in Survival Infinity, a MyMetaverse Minecraft server, they become a special sword.
MyMetaverse is one of the ecosystem partners to be granted early access to make NFTs available on Efinity, with a range of projects waiting to be onboarded over the coming weeks. Enjin, the leading ecosystem for integrating NFTs into virtual worlds, is helping build Efinity, a parachain built on Polkadot and designed to enable fast and affordable NFT transactions. The launch of NFTs on Efinity, a scalable, decentralised, cross-chain network designed to bring NFTs to everyone, is a significant milestone for Enjin and the next generation of blockchains built on Polkadot.
“We believe the most valuable NFTs will be those that have the greatest impact on people’s everyday experiences. With utility in three separate games, the MetaHome collection is an exploration of blockchain-enabled, cross-game interoperability. Thanks to Enjin’s toolkit, it is now the first playable NFT within the Polkadot ecosystem,” Simon Kertonegoro, CEO and founder of MyMetaverse, said.
In addition to the GTA 5 and Minecraft servers, the MetaHome collection is already functional in other MyMetaverse titles, including the massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Infinity Realms. MyMetaverse leverages Enjin’s Open Platform to integrate the MetaHome NFT collection across its gaming servers.
“Enjin aims to be the NFT highway connecting game studios and their users onto the blockchain. Leveraging Enjin’s comprehensive suite of tools and the scalability of the Efinity parachain, we are excited to collaborate with MyMetaverse to integrate NFTs into AAA games such as GTA 5––allowing gamers to own digital collectibles within their favorite games,” Witek Radomski, CTO and Co-founder of Enjin, said.
