While the combination of metaverse and cryptocurrency is still a fairly novel concept, a few existing projects have a similar focus. Often the STARL community and potential investors ask, “what makes STARL different?” The term “metaverse” is being used more and more frequently by projects, and while there is not a well-established definition for it yet, there are many interpretations. STARL believes the “metaverse” should focus on unlimited access and potential, allowing people to transcend physical limitations in a virtual world. Ownership of virtual real estate, unlimited self-expression, and unending adventure with a deep virtual interactive economy will help users explore and expand beyond what they have access to in the physical world. While other projects also claim the “metaverse” tag for various reasons, it might not necessarily mean they are comparable to STARL in form or function. These projects may only be a gaming platform, or simply an NFT marketplace with a standard game attached. The goals for STARL go much further than these concepts alone.
STARL has been cultivating an increasingly talented team composed of community members and professionals hired to help guide and develop the project. STARL aims to bridge the gap between the professional gaming industry and cryptocurrency. We believe bringing together people, not just concepts, from both sides is the key. To succeed, it cannot just be one group trying to excel at both things. Each has skills grown through experience and education, and combining those skills is the true advantage.
We have brought on gaming industry veterans like Shahid Ahmad, who has an extensive list of accolades, including having been named one of the Games Industry International’s Top 10 Persons of the Year and 100 Top Influencers in the British Games Industry, as well as previously holding the position of PlayStation Content Director at Sony.
STARL also has onboarded Scott Brown and his team, who carry vast experience in MMO-style games, having created Jumpgate and other games filled with exploration, economies, and virtual worlds, bringing Warp Nexus to the STARL Metaverse. The Metaverse & Gaming team Scott has built has collective experience in the field working for companies and projects like Pixar, Disney, Lucasfilm, Lionsgate, Sony, LEGO, and Enjin where this experience brings a deep level of understanding of what is needed to accomplish the goals at STARL.
STARL Artist Guild has been established and is full of passionate concept and 3D designers from the community and abroad who love to create and expand the vision of the metaverse with satellites, living modules, character designs, robots, level designs, terrain, and much more.
Above all, the most crucial piece of the puzzle is our community, which is incredibly passionate about the project and goals that lie ahead.
These are the factors that make STARL stand out in the crowd.
