Muse is a virtual gallery that gained a lot of traction lately among the CNFT community, collectors and projects use Muse to display their art as well as put them up for sale, while visitors enjoy a cool experience strolling around the gallery. To get to know more about the project we contacted the Muse team to answer some of our questions :
1- First of all what can creators do with Muse ?
“Muse allows anyone to build a 3D website that feels like an immersive virtual world. Creators can start using Muse to replace traditional static websites with virtual worlds. These virtual worlds can represent anything from personal sites, resumes, clothing stores, music videos, and of course NFT galleries. We actually raised our entire seed round without a pitch deck and instead used a Muse site, https://muse.place/yc.”
2- What is the team behind the project ?
“The team is composed of 4 young adults, Alex(CTO), Ben(CEO), Veltson(Head of Business Development), and Steven (Head of 3D and Templates). The founders are Alex and Ben. They have been building websites and companies together over the last 6 years since meeting Sophomore year of high school through the robotics team. Alex and Ben started Muse because they were tired of building the same boring static website over and over again for their freelance web dev agency which they used to bootstrap other business projects. Steven and Veltson joined a year ago just when were getting started when they met Alex at college. Steven has an art degree from UCSB and the rest of us are CS major drop outs. One thing that makes our team special is that we are all technical and every week we continue to contribute to the projects repository. ”
3- How easy is it to setup a virtual gallery on Muse ?
“All you need to do is to signup, select a template, and click spacebar to start building! Overall, it is a pretty easy experience to get started. You don’t need to know how to code or any 3D modeling experience. Once you get comfortable using WASD to walk around and using the trackpad/mouse to start building it is really easy. Some say it feels like Minecraft. When you create your world, be sure to change the url which is found on the home page, http://muse.place, before anyone else claims it! One of the hardest things for people to do is to rotate 90 degrees on an axis. We have made that easier by adding a shortcut that will do it for you. It is difficult to align things to be pixel perfect right now but we are working on that.
