CNFT HISTORY: VR CNFTs - WORLDS WITHIN
Our CNFT space is so young, that doors to innovation are always wide open. The project that we will be covering for this week’s piece is well-known to our readers and continues to bring fresh ideas to the table.
Worlds Within is the first project to introduce explorable CNFTs through
Virtual Reality, the idea behind it is to give holders the ability to explore their lands as well as discover new ones, and thanks to the VR compatibility the experience becomes totally immersive.
To get to know more about the project we have the Worlds Within team as our guests for this week to answer some of our questions : 
1- What is the team behind Worlds Within?
“The team is a collective of VR and Crypto Enthusiasts, we originally started as a team of guys who loved playing Echo VR. Our love and passion for Echo VR turned into a want to build community tools for the game. We create a suite of tools for players and the organizations broadcasting VR e-sport matches. During this time we were carefully watching and participating in the Cardano community. “

2- Why a VR project? 
“VR is the unifying factor that brought us together as a collective. We have thought about many ways of introducing the Cardano community to the community of VR enthusiasts and vice-versa.”
3- How did you find the CNFT community’s response to the project? 
“Our community response was fantastic, people were very excited to check out each world as each world is 100% unique. The addition of having no rarity scaler also enticed holders as they could come up with their own stories and create their own value.”

5- What are your long term plans? Will there be new innovation implemented into the project?
“Our plans for the future are a Marketplace, Avatar System, and a UI System coming in the first quarter of 2022. And multiplayer coming in the second quarter of 2022. We are very exited to showcase these new updates when they are ready.”

CNFT ACADEMY :
CNFT Academy is an e-learning platform focused on CNFTs, the first four lessons were posted last month, and are open to everyone. These first lessons cover the setup of a Cardano Node and how to use it to send ADA transactions as well as mint CNFTs, more lessons will follow to dig even deeper into Cardano NFTs. The lessons are available via videos and written tutorials making them easier to follow and understand. In order to get more information surrounding the project we asked the CNFT Academy team some questions : 
1- Who is the team behind CNFT Academy?
“I am, Raul Rosa. CNFT Academy is still early, so I am the only team member. I hired a friend for the website but content (video and texts) are made by me.”
2- How did the idea for a CNFT learning platform come? 
“Many times I got asked how do I run my own Cardano node and how to start. Online material is not so clear and easy to understand that’s why I decided to make some videos to make it a piece of cake.”
3- What courses are already available ?
“Videos available are a guide to run a Cardano node from zero, sending ADA transactions and minting CNFTs.”

4- What will be your future lessons?
“The future is really wide, how to run a minting vending machine? How to create on-chain NFTs? Different approaches for minting (pre-mint and on demand mint).”
5- What are your long term plans?
“I would like to improve my courses content with Plutus development and create certification courses for developers. The future of Cardano is built together with new devs coming in the community.”

FEATURED NFT OF THE WEEK: UNIVERSE 25
Universe25 is a critique to the modern age instant gratification trend that we mainly consume through our phones. They approach this theme by exaggerating the practice itself with a very peculiar approach to their PR and Community Management.
The team has setup a whole Discord Bot, O’Brien the rat, who manages the community & shares interesting Lore about the projects and what it encapsulates. The idea is that we’re all slaves to the instant gratification and it makes nothing more than subjects to a higher race controlling us.
As they like to frame it: “ In the beginning there was a world, it was a beautiful world, that breathed life into everything, and everything was balanced. Then we came along and well, we kinda fucked things up! Not all of it, but human nature lead to some very bad things…”

The Team is composed of 4 main team members:
  • Max, he’s the main person in charge of communication.
  • Ivan, the project manager.
  • Flavio, the artist behind all the artworks.
  • George, the engineer who is building everything UNV25: Vending Machine, Blockchain etc.
And they want to make sure everyone knows that what they are building goes BEYOND just selling NFTs or a simple release program, with a stake pool already announced and a really cool roadmap layout showing this is only the beginning.
