DOGAMÍ’s “Petaverse” on Tezos moves one step closer as NFT minting begins today, February 22
Everyone’s talking about the metaverse, a digital world where the real and virtual worlds converge into a vision of science fiction. You can think of the metaverse as a virtual world where millions of people could gather to work, play, and socialize in immersive virtual environments. But what about the Petaverse? Now one startup is introducing the idea of Petaverse–a metaverse world for pets.
DOGAMÍ is a tech startup aiming to establish the Petaverse, a Metaverse initiative where users and their pet companions can live together, level up together, and explore new things together. Having a virtual companion in the Petaverse creates a very different experience and enables a different take on play-to-earn mechanics.
DOGAMÍ is taking the next step toward building the Petaverse with the announcement of its minting phase. Tezos users can access the private and public sales, with generation Alpha NFTs to start unboxing (holders can choose whether to unbox or not) on March 1, 2022.
The DOGAMÍ project spans over 300 breeds of dogs, each of which has unique traits and characteristics. The Dogamí NFTs come in four rarity tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. NFT holders can interact with their Dogamí through augmented reality and the DOGAMÍ application on their mobile devices. A recent trailer reveal showcases what users can expect from the Petaverse.
Taking the Dogamí NFT into the Petaverse enables broad exploration of a virtual environment. Moreover, holders can train, customize, build traits and compete in challenges. Those challenges are an essential part of the play-to-earn mechanic, as ranking well earns users more $DOGA tokens. A beta version of the play-to-earn game will launch in Q2 2022, and DOGAMÍ will gain DeFi features (farming and staking) to enhance its appeal.
To gain access to the DOGAMÍ Petaverse, one needs to mint one of the 8,000 non-fungible tokens in this collection. The prize per NFT is set at 50 XTZ and can only be done through dedicated Tezos wallets rather than wallet addresses belonging to centralized exchanges.
Access to the private sale is granted to all the OG Dogamers. They will have a minting limit of 2 Dogamí NFTs per wallet, with the minting link being disclosed via Discord. Additionally, eligible users for the public sale can mint 1 NFT per wallet, with the minting link revealed on Discord.
The DOGAMÍ project notes strong attention from NFT enthusiasts worldwide. Its community has grown to over 80,000 members worldwide, with 28% of the members creating a Discord account for the sole purpose of accessing DOGAMÍ. Furthermore, DOGAMÍ notes over 13 international communities and a constant Discord activity level of 10-20% of the total member count.
Additionally, the recent free NFT giveaway drew over 27,000 entries, confirming strong community support for this initiative. That free NFT airdrop pertains to Doga Bones, which gained the #1 Hot Collection spot on Objkt. It is the first project as a free NFT airdrop to hit that spot. Moreover, Doga Bones has a floor price of 15.99 XTZ and over 47,100 XTZ in total volume. Doga Bones will be used within the DOGAMÍ Petaverse, making them of great interest to those who aim to support the project for the long run.
DOGAMÍ secured $6 million in funding in late 2021. investors include Ubisoft, Animoca Brands, and co-founders of The Sandbox.
DOGAMÍ is the first mass-market NFT play-to-earn AR mobile game, where you adopt and raise your 3D dog and earn $DOGA in the Petaverse. Co-founded in mid-2021 by Max Stoeckl (CEO, previously BCG), Bilal El Alamy (chief technology officer, blockchain serial entrepreneur), Adrien Magdelaine (chief operating officer, previously Wamiz, pet industry serial entrepreneur) and Kristofer D. Penseyres (chief business officer, previously Sony Pictures, branding & partnership expert). Supported by a European team of 30+ including art director Gregory Magadoux (previously Ubisoft).
