For the past few days, Facebook’s name change has grabbed the crypto media headlines, which marked the company’s ambition to drive into the metaverse field. From the well-received film “Ready Player One” to today’s emerging market crowded by tech giants, the popularity of the metaverse continues unabated throughout the year. It has given birth to more and more new projects, and Starl is one of them.
In August 2021, Starl sold 18 virtual satellites in a bidding auction for about $1.75 million, attracting tremendous attention among cryptocurrency investors. However, once regarded as a shitcoin, how come Starlink made a comeback and peaked as a record hit? To explain that, let’s have a look at its relation with Shib.
Starl was created by Woof Decentra, Moe Larson, and a diversified team consisted of 3D artists and technicians. Of the two project leaders, Woof Decentra has been a member of the Shib team and the founder of Leash, and Moe Larson is an investor and developer of several cryptocurrency projects.
Backed by the development team, Starl had become an instant hit, with many metaverse investors calling it “the next Shib.” Even Vitalik Buterin had claimed that in the next 5–10 years, a real “metaverse” would take shape on Ethereum, and by then, Starl would play an essential role in industry development, leading the metaverse market to true glory.
Starl is a metaverse and NFT project that is 100% owned by the community and features decentralized virtual space. It stimulates an international space base located in the Galaxy, where planets and satellites can be bought and traded freely, just like property sales on Earth. Users create their planetoids in the universe, conduct NFT auctions, trade virtual satellites and spacecraft, purchase lands, and trade commodities for space use in the Starl ecosystem. In the virtual world created by Starl, users can interact in various ways and explore the universe through social interaction.
In addition, Starl has also incorporated space travel, space base connections, asteroids mining, and space combats to build a complex and fun virtual game economy. It is committed to providing users with opportunities for personal development and revenue growth in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and to creating a novel financial model with limitless possibilities.
Its coin, STARL, is a medium for in-game trading and governance voting. STARL allows users to exchange and modify assets in the game or gain access to games, participate in virtual concerts and clubs, enter travel mode in the metaverse, invest in virtual real estate, collect in-game materials, and pay other players for social experiences. In addition to games, STARL also supports applications such as media, entertainment, and education.
It’s worth noting that most non-fungible tokens were sold out soon after being listed on Starl’s official website, which is a sign of the project’s popularity. Also, Starl has joined the Play-to-Earn gaming guild to work together with the E-sports team and entertainment organization Mazer Gaming. According to its official website, the project is expected to launch Starlink DAO in December 2021 and MetaVerse 3D in 2022.
Only 50 days after its cold start, Starl was listed on gate.io without a listing fee or investment to the exchange, with the momentum to be a leading metaverse game. For now, it is available on many other exchanges, including CoinEx. As a project that interests even Vitalik, all eyes are on Starl to see whether it can continue Shib’s legend.
