“I’ve proposed to my girlfriend using Metaverse (Spoiler; she said yes). The first metaverse proposal on the blockchain! Congratulations to our OVRCommunity member, Atticus and his fiancé! Let’s plan the wedding on OVRLive!”
How Atticus built his experience
In a series of descriptive tweets from Atticus, the cryptocurrency and technology-loving husband-to-be, it is possible to see how the choice of the OVR metaverse was for him a unique, out-of-this-world place to propose to his fiancée.
Atticus recounts a favourite spot of the couple where they occasionally go in the car or to the beach to relax, listen to the waves and seclude themselves. With this place in mind, Hungarian Atticus bought that land in OVR, creating a 3D model of his handwritten note that reads “Will you marry me?”.
The experience was built on OVR Builder and published by Atticus on the purchased OVRLand land. Here is how Atticus then describes the moment:
“I’ve waited till the next time we went there and asked her to take a photo of me on the beach. She had no idea what is about to go down 🙂 I’ve started a screen recording, opened the OVR app, loaded the experience and then handed over my phone to her to ‘take a photo’. And there I was, standing (and on one knee a few seconds later), with my handwritten 3D note in the background. She said yes 🙂 …”
The new updated Tokenomics: the Token Burning Program
Meanwhile, OVR has opted to revamp its Tokenomics by introducing the Token Burning Program, with the aim of making its own OVR tokens rarer and more valuable.
The results of the first month of the active program (i.e. November 2021) saw exactly 40% of the OVR collected from sales burned, representing 246,146 OVR, while 10%, or 615,365 OVR, were dedicated to mining among new buyers of OVRLands on Chainlink.
This Token Burning Program idea came after the OVR team burned nearly 1 million of their tokens last May.
