Copernic Space and AdShares ($ADS) team up to bring physical space assets into the Metaverse
From the Metaverse to the Moon…literally.
“To the Moon” is now a real opportunity
Space rules everyone’s imagination these days we are going back into space with giant strides. No wonder “To the Moon” has become the synonym of tokens reaching outer space valuations. But now, economic participation in space is available to anyone who wants to own an asset in outer space, in this case, the Moon.
The Web3 marketplace for space assets, Copernic Space recently teamed up with Lunar Outpost to launch the first-ever sale of tokenism space payload. Set to land on the Moon in 2022, the sale of payload on Lunar Outpost’s MAPP Rover enables the commercial market to send physical cargo to the Moon and the retail market to buy fractional ownership of the payload as an NFT. Copernic Space has now joined forces with the blockchain advertising protocol AdShares to bring true space assets and experiences into the Metaverse following their recently launched sale.
Mission Control – in Decentraland
Copernic Space and Adshares ($ADS) will bring space assets hosted on the Copernic Space marketplace into the Metaverse through various experiences. A “Mission Control” showroom will be created in Decentraland, where guests can experience the MAPP Rover, see and buy ownership of payload space on it, and stay up-to-date with the mission. A Decentraland advertising partner, the Adshares protocol will power the experience and campaign to convert users in the Metaverse into experiencing true space assets and the opportunity to buy and sell their ownership.
“Opening up the opportunity in the Metaverse for users to experience space assets and directly participate in the economic growth of the new space economy is building the foundation for the future of both markets. We’ve been actively working with innovation leaders in their field, such as Adshares, to provide these opportunities in a variety of ways. The Metaverse is an organic expansion for the space assets and companies on our marketplace.” – said Grant Blaisdell, Copernic Space CEO.
Creating lasting value
Sending cargo to space is nothing new, but the capability has never been widely commercially available, let alone turned into an asset for the retail market. Physically putting it on the surface of the Moon for later generations to “unmoon” adds another first-of-its-kind opportunity.
“Brands and companies looking to stand out are given a historic opportunity to be the first on the Moon and in the Metaverse at the same time. We’re giving you the Moon – but brands can build their own narrative and related space assets for their base on top of that,” – says Jacek Studziński, Adshares Head of Communications.
The birth of a new business and advertising model for space and crypto, the sale will give the owners of the Moon cargo a way to earn a new revenue stream from their cargo by fractionalizing and selling their space assets.
Copernic Space and Adshares will begin testing various experiences in Decentraland for the upcoming public sale allowing the retail market to buy virtual ownership of the Moon cargo.
