Mainbot, the French start-up behind the edutainment robot Winky, just announced that 75% of the first batches of its metaverse, The Winkyverse, were sold in 3 days!
75% of the land sold in 3 days in more than 50 countries
In 2019, the Mainbot company launched its Winky edutainment robot. In 2021, it’s time for her to incubate her Winkyverse project, an educational metaverse with a resolve to become the first of its kind. Finally, on September 29, 2,100 of the first lots of Winkyverse went up for sale through a private sale. Thanks to Winkybot NFT, owners have exclusive access to the sale and a 50% discount on “terre”, ie land in French.
Strengthened by the success obtained with the Winky robot, Mainbot has decided to undertake an important Web3 project: the first educational video game of the metaverse, The Winkyverse. It is a universe designed to be immersive and collaborative, offering a multitude of missions and numerous educational content suitable for adults, as well as children and families.
A poetic story
The story of The Winkyverse is set 3000 years in the future. After the Earth was nearly destroyed by pollution and overexploitation and natural resources nearly disappeared, human civilization had to adapt and evolve. Thus were born the EcoBots, to heal the planet and erase their mistakes from humanity. Through various practices such as recycling or permaculture, humans are now trying to live in an environmentally responsible way. In The Winkyverse, the player can thus travel through a gigantic open world, where Humans, Nature and EcoBot coexist in harmony.
Winkyverse explorers can develop and customize their land there to develop its playful and financial value by building economic structures, but also hosting educational content generated by other users or simply their own creations. Finally, it is possible to earn passive income from title to land through collection, refining and manufacturing taxes.
The system and token on which the ecosystem is based
The 2,100 lots available in this first round of sales are located on Pomokata, the first biome of the Winkyverse. It is an archipelago with high peaks, lush forests and magnificent beaches.
Two types of land are for sale:
- standard plots priced at WNK $ 200,000; And
- the Legendary Lands are priced at WNK $ 2,500,000.
In this metaverse, all purchases are made in Winkies Tokens ($ WNK), a proprietary virtual currency. Winkies are used by the most important players1 uniquely. They can then be converted into traditional fiat currencies (dollars, euros …) to generate a profit.
” This first sale is encouraging with 75% of the land sold in 3 days in 54 countries. Demonstrate the appetite for a new metaverse, the desire of players and investors to take part in a new economy based on exchange, discovery and learning, in a virtual universe accessible to all ”. comments Boris Kesler Fasano CEO of Mainbot.
1 Young players will benefit from a monetization-free gaming experience. The Winkyverse offers two distinct entry points for minors and adults. The Winkyverse Kids is completely free, with no monetization or advertising, and offers content suitable for a young audience. The adult part has a different content and economy.
