Welcome to a new reality in the metaverse. Welcome to Africarare.
Africarare is building a metaverse for African creativity. It is a 3D virtual reality experience, powered by the Ethereum blockchain, and set in Ubuntuland, a virtual world which marries creativity, crypto, and commerce.
Ubuntuland allows users to create, experience and monetize content and applications like art exhibitions, concerts, film festivals, business meetings, play-to-earn games, social experiences, and much more. The possibilities for meaningful metaverse experiences are almost endless for the creation and monetization of whatever digital goods and services translate into the world of the metaverse. There are 204 642 plots of land available in Ubuntuland. The land plots are positioned and priced according to a tiered value system. The land is owned by the community, giving users full control over their creations. Land owners control what content is published on their land. Land is a non-fungible, transferrable, scarce digital asset stored in an Ethereum smart contract.
The content of land parcels can be explored by all users. For content creators, the establishment of districts provides access to targeted traffic. Users can travel through neighbourhoods and interact with applications that they stumble upon. This discovery by adjacency would have far less power if infinite plots of land were available because users would have a hard time finding relevant content if the available land wasn’t finite. With scarce land, developers can acquire users by purchasing land in high-traffic areas. This will allow secondary markets to develop around land ownership and rentals.
Landholders can customise their territory to do anything from hosting shops, producing resources, housing NPC’s and developing games or any other applications. And there’s more to come, like staking, DAO and blockchain play-to-earn gaming. Users can share experiences by becoming part of a tribe or setting up their own tribe or community in a virtual village. There are various sizes of villages in Ubuntuland, ranging from 24x24, 12x12, 6x6, 3x3 and 1x1 villages that form community-based hubs of like-minded interests and adjacencies. Users are able to buy, sell or rent digital assets within Africarare, and develop custom-made experiences for their community or guests.
Title deeds and certifications of ownership are issued when you purchase land, in addition to a blockchain confirmation, so you know it’s a legit transaction.
The currency within Ubuntuland is the $UBUNTU token, which is built on the Ethereum blockchain. Everything in Africarare can be bought, sold or traded using $UBUNTU tokens including buying, developing, selling or renting plots in Ubuntuland and the in-world purchases of digital goods and services.
