Virtual Land in the Metaverse Is Selling for Millions of Dollars

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies

People and companies are betting on life becoming more digitized and the much-hyped, little-understood metaverse taking off; virtual land is becoming as much of an investment as physical land, and if current trends continue, may stand to give early adopters a huge payout. Metaverse Group chose its plot of land very intentionally, and knows exactly what use it will be put to; located in Decentraland’s Fashion Street district, the space will be used “to facilitate fashion shows and commerce within the exploding digital fashion industry.”

Let’s back up a bit. Decentraland is a decentralized virtual world built on the Ethereum blockchain, with “decentralized” obviously being the key word and the platform’s big differentiator. “The people who use Decentraland own Decentraland,” Dave Carr, communications lead for the platform, told Euronews Next. “We have a decentralized autonomous organization in which people can submit proposals and vote on proposals submitted by others. And this effectively determines the future direction of Decentraland.”

Facebook, now Meta, aims to rule the metaverse of the future, but it seems likely that people will gravitate towards platforms like Decentraland precisely because they’re not owned or controlled by a centralized authority. Facebook hasn’t done a great job of earning its users’ trust, and it could take a long time for the company to turn consumer sentiment around. Meanwhile, Decentraland’s emphasis on autonomy and the lack of a single powerful decision-maker may be just what virtual world enthusiasts are looking for.

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, internet

It’s a web of endless possibilities, but there’s a chance we might find ourselves interwoven in the same old web of Big Tech.

The emergence of blockchain-based technologies such as cryptocurrency, NFTs, metaverse, blockchain, and distributed ledger technology, etc is being seen as the herald of a new era of the internet — a more transparent and open version of the web that would be collectively controlled by users, instead of tech giants like Google and Facebook.

Elon Musk’s Revolutionary NEW School Revealed!

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, education, Elon Musk, media & arts, robotics/AI, space travel

Ad Astra School is the experimental school that Elon Musk started in one of SpaceX’s factories to give an education to his own children and selected children of SpaceX employees. The future of work will require a set of skills that are not taught in schools today. The future of work will involve robots and Artificial Intelligence collaborating with humans. The Astra Nova School’s pillars include caring about community, focusing on student experiences, and sharing the work they do with the world.
Here students learn about simulations, case studies, fabrication and design projects, labs, and corporate collaboration. In general, school systems are rigid. They are more system-centric than student-centric. Astra Nova is changing that by creating a philosophy of student centricity, a value for individual abilities, praising curiosity, and encouraging problem-solving and critical thinking.
