The first in-game NFTs were created on Efinity with the launch of the MetaHome NFT Collection, immediately usable in MyMetaverse’s full suite of games. MyMetaverse, a game development company specializing in creator-driven metaverses with in-game and earning economies, has ensured that at launch, NFTs perform different functions in three different games.
MetaHome NFTs offer unique game utility in all worlds where they are recognized. In Infinity Auto, a Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 MyMetaverse 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 getting early access to make NFTs available on Efinity, with a range of projects waiting to be integrated over the coming weeks. Enjin, the leading ecosystem for integrating NFTs into virtual worlds, is helping build Efinity, a Polkadot-based parachain designed to enable fast and affordable NFT transactions. The launch of NFTs on Efinity, a scalable, decentralized, cross-chain network designed to bring NFTs to everyone, is an important 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 distinct games, the MetaHome Collection is a blockchain-enabled exploration of inter-game interoperability. Thanks to Enjin’s toolkit, this is now the first playable NFT within the Polkadot ecosystem,” said Simon Kertonegoro, CEO and Founder of MyMetaverse.
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 relies on Enjin’s open platform to integrate the MetaHome NFT collection on its game servers.
“Enjin aims to be the NFT highway connecting game studios and their users to the blockchain. Leveraging Enjin’s comprehensive suite of tools and the scalability of the Efinity parachain, we are excited to partner with MyMetaverse to integrate NFTs into AAA games such as GTA 5, allowing players to own digital collectibles in their favorite games,” Witek Radomski, CTO and Co-Founder of Enjin, said.
