Development Update October 2022

The evolution of Bit.County & Metaverse.Network is underway!

Recently, we joined leading crypto voices at the Token2049 event. Our team was invited by Polkadot to host a booth at this global crypto event. Our Founders networked and showcased Bit.Country & Metaverse.Network to other crypto project founders, executives of leading Web3 companies, investors, developers, the media and industry enthusiasts.

September has been a month to remember. Proudly, on the 12th of September our team made the Pioneer Bit.Country application live to the public. Pioneer users are now able to easily use our tools to build their own metaverse project in 12 seconds. Pioneer Bit.Country’s focus is on user experience. Upon going live, early adopters staked over 1 million $NEER within the first 24 hours to start earning $BIT rewards. Organic growth has been impressive, Pioneer Bit.Country has ~1,100 daily active users and over 4 million $NEER staked in the network to date.

Early supporters of Pioneer Bit.Country will be amongst the Web3.0 trendsetters who will help to ignite the great migration away from centralized and advertised controlled Web2.0 content. Metaverse brands will revolutionize connectivity with their communities. Metaverse builders will soon be able to build immersive 3D worlds that will act as time capsules to showcase their legacy.

With only 10% of Pioneer Bit.Country features released, our team is excited for our users to get familiar with our application and unlock the full potential of metaverse utility.

In October, Raw Land Block auction sales will commence with our Xenoform Event. Follow our Twitter @BitDotCountry to make sure you don’t miss the announcement.

Token2049 Event

On the 29th of September Bit.Country & Metaverse.Network were invited by Polkadot to host a booth at the premier crypto event known as a Token2049. To celebrate the event our team built a Token2049 theme pavilion to showcase to event goers to future opportunities of metaverse utility for brands and projects in our industry.

Token2049 has over 7000 attendees, more than 200 speakers, 200 journalists and more than 250 exhibitors. It was a great opportunity for our project to be on the global crypto stage. In the future, Bit.Country will have the capability to host events like Token2049 in the metaverse. Events will be able to run event campaigns where attendees can be airdropped NFTs, wearables, or tokens to interacting with event exhibits or watching speakers.
