Into the Metaverse: What do Big Eyes Coin and Decentraland Have in Common?

By August 23, 2022 No Comments

The Metaverse is an online virtual reality where users can have 3D experiences. Decentraland (MANA) is a space within this world where you can create, explore, and trade in the ‘first ever virtual world owned by its users’. At its base level, Decentraland (MANA) is a cryptocurrency that users can buy, sell, and swap. However, the gameplay makes it so much more than that.

Meanwhile, Big Eyes Coin (BIG) is a community-driven cryptocurrency with a cat mascot. Unlike Decentraland (MANA) it does not have a huge virtual reality world in the metaverse, however, these two coins are more linked than you might think.

A Look Inside Decentraland (MANA)

Within Decentraland (MANA) players can create scenes, artworks, and more using their ‘Builder’ tool. Decentraland (MANA) wants to ‘test the limits of your imagination’, enabling people to lose themselves in a creative and evolving world. In the metaverse, anything is possible – you can have adventures in space, enter a medieval dungeon, and explore entire quirky villages made by Decentraland (MANA) players.

Decentraland (MANA) is also a place to earn money as it’s a virtual destination for digital assets. Players can buy and sell LAND, Estates, Avatar clothes, and unique names. The Decentraland Marketplace is supported by the Ethereum blockchain and stocks the best digital goods.

Decentraland (MANA) is the first fully decentralised world, controlled by a DAO, allowing the community to make the decisions. Standing for ‘Decentralised Autonomous Organisation’, the DAO owns the smart contracts that make up the virtual world. Therefore, players can vote and decide on what happens within it.

How Does Decentraland Relate to The New Big Eyes Coin

Although Big Eyes Coin (BIG) does not have an immersive virtual reality world like Decentraland (MANA), it does have a virtual world centered on its cute cat mascot. Built into the whitepaper is a backstory for the cat, explaining how Big Eyes Coin is cultivating his ‘cute’ and has created a cryptocurrency. He has an appetite for sushi and wants to donate 5% of his coins to ocean sanctuaries as a result. If you’re intrigued by this, there’s a whole animal kingdom of cryptocurrencies to explore here.

The Big Eyes Coin (BIG) website has cute graphics showing different elements of the cat’s life – from his bedroom and his office, to his sushi-making machine. We can imagine this cat’s life as little pieces of his stubborn, witty, cute personality shine through the website.

For an experience more similar to the immersion of Decentraland (MANA), Big Eyes Coin (BIG) has an NFT Sushi Crew, giving you personal access to more Big Eyes Coin content. For merchandise, events, meetings, and networking within the community – join the sushi crew and immerse yourself in this crypto-cat community. If you’d like some of the Big Eyes Coin merchandise without the community membership, there will also be a ‘Supurrr-store’ enabling users to buy stickers, NFTs, products, and more.

Despite their oppositional structures, both Decentraland (MANA) and Big Eyes Coin (BIG) use the metaverse to build community strength and camaraderie, bonding their users through the creative and enticing online worlds that they’ve created.
