What is Somnium Space?
Somnium Space is a virtual world that people can visit from their desktop computers, mobile phones and through VR headsets. The mobile phone version is toned down, as it allows users to travel to one parcel at the time by following a direct link.
The virtual world uses CUBE as its native currency. Players can purchase virtual land to build a home, office or museum. At the same time the developers have introduced Somnium Space Worlds, which are instanced servers that allow more gamified experiences. Only landowners can place a portal to a World.
Somnium Space taps into many open source systems. For example, they allow users to mint their own avatars. Projects like Crypto Avatars allow users to buy an avatar that’s unique and usable in Somnium Space, but also in other virtual worlds like VR Chat and Webaverse.
