One core pillar of the open web3 metaverse is virtual tokenized land. However, as it sits today, there is no fluent way or well defined standard for different virtual worlds to be able to have an interoperability component within their land across the realms.
Establishing a standard for interoperable districts is of critical importance, because, if we are confined to silos within the metaverse then it goes against some of the core principles of what the metaverse actually is; a truly persistent, immersive and open space measured across time.
Under the last PODE announcement (Can be viewed here) extensive details were shared in regards to implementation of the Player Creator Portal as a native web3 steam alternative. The concept of Virtual Land Offerings (VLOs) for indie developers and modders within the platform as they integrate web3 value layer mechanics through NFT wrapped content and assets was described as well.
One of the most prominent pathways for these VLOs to promulgate beyond the initial seed game environments where their utility and value is first surfaced is done through a clear and established standard for the interoperability of these NFTs across different virtual worlds. This standard will first have strong usage within the IMG (Indie Modder’s Guild) Constellation and also can be adopted with a soft enforcement mechanism by any web3 orientated virtual land protocol, present or future.
With that said, this proposal is to start initiating the deliberation around both the establishment of the web3 realms interoperability standard, as well as the role of PODE V2 holders within the platform in relation to governance and influence over the interoperability standard itself, the mechanics behind a indie game or mod gaining VLO status and select functions within the IMG as IMG members expand into PODE V2 holders.
As the deliberation progresses more suggestions and comments will be added to this thread.
For this, governance voting functionality will be added for PODE holders across these select proposals.
