Earth 2 Metaverse: A Dive into Buying and Trading Virtual Lands
Earth 2.io is a futuristic concept of the second earth where real-world geological locations are user-generated worlds. The team has basically laid each tile on a grid by using satellite data of the earth.
It is a virtual Mercator projection of a global map using MapBox technology that is cut into 10 x 10 meters square grids of approximately 5.1 trillion unique tiles.
Each tile has a distinct combination of characteristics divided into four classes (Class 1, 2, 3, and 4), which makes them different from one another.
Just like other metaverse lands, this platform also has some popular spots that are already sold out because of their value in the real world.
The game isn’t built on a blockchain but recently announced a partnership with Polygon Studios to bring the metaverse to Web3 and utilize the scaling protocol to convert in-game assets.
Users can use fiat currency through PayPal or a Debit/Credit card to purchase land, making it easier for non-crypto Web2 users to adopt this new concept quickly.
According to the website, one tile price begins from $0.10. If the tie belongs to Land Tier 1, then it will be more expensive on the second buy while T2 is comparatively less expensive.
When compared with other virtual real estates, Earth 2 gives a good amount of space for owners to build their own worlds without any restrictions; some people even called it the next Bitcoin.
