Metaverse Challenges: Is The Darkverse a Real Threat?
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. The dark side of the Internet as we know it today goes by the name of the ‘ dark web’ — a place where activities remain anonymous and private in an attempt to evade government censorship. The darkverse constitutes the evolution, the next generation of the dark web — a place in the metaverse that’s not indexed or discoverable by mainstream search engines. Blockchain technology is based on decentralisation principles, giving the end-user power and autonomy. What happens when that user chooses to abuse power afforded to them by the newfound technology? What happens when the beauty and promise of the metaverse turns into the playground of mischief and illegal activity? Today, we’ll investigate the potential threats of the darkverse, trying to contextualise ideas and hypotheses. Let’s dive right into it. — NFTs are the obvious target - We’ve talked about NFTs ad nauseam in the past few months, and so have we about the potential of crypto scams that have made an appearance in our space. What happens when scam meets NFT, though? The answer is simple — phishing, ransomware, fraud, and other attacks we’ve already seen in the past couple of years. The blueprint is ready and tested, the only difference being that scammers will flip emails for NFTs. NFTs are becoming a core meta...
The Current State of Ethereum
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. The Ethereum Merge event has been highly anticipated by the entire crypto community, and with good reason. Ethereum has been leading the Layer 1 space since its inception and has indeed a first-mover advantage. Its shortcomings, however, have always been there. The network is constrained by the scalability trilemma: a tradeoff between decentralization, scalability, and security. In this new research article we bring you a snapshot of Ethereum’s current state, challenges, and ambitions for the future. — Ethereum’s Roadmap - Ethereum is the first smart-contract enabled blockchain and remains the market leader in the L1 space, ranking second only after Bitcoin on CMC. In order to overcome the scalability trilemma, Ethereum has come up with a series of network upgrades that will be implemented over the next few years. Ethereum Merge: the full transition to proof-of-stake by merging mainnet with the Beacon Chain system. Taking place around September 15th, 2022., EIP4488: this proposal aims to reduce the cost of “calldata”, one of the components that make up gas fees. Calldata is essentially the inputs of what needs to be performed in a transaction. Rollup solutions execute transactions off-chain, but they do post this data to mainnet. Reducing the cost of calldata would bring down the overall co...
Decentralized Social Media: What Does The Future Hold For SocialFi?
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok — social media have been embedded in the fabric of our society for the past 15 years, redefining how we communicate, laugh, work and get the news. The dawn of blockchain technology is slowly yet steadily shaking up every single vertical and industry we know, and social media is no exception. The third generation of the Internet will bring the social media ecosystem in ways that a few years back would seem unthinkable. — Own your tweets, memes and GIFs - Let’s start with a simple example. Whether it’s a group chat, a personal chat, or the comment section of a social media platform, we’ve all used or at least seen one of the memes included on this list. As crazy as this sounds, GIFs and memes have become a humorous yet meaningful way of interaction for our generation, encapsulating a specific mood, feelings or thoughts. Have you considered who the original creator of these viral pieces of content is? Shouldn’t you be given the credit and monetary compensation for creating something the world uses daily? The infrastructure and nature of web2 make it impossible to track and assign ownership. Enter the blockchain. In the blockchain version of social media, people will be able to own the rights to anything they say and produce. For example, the technology w...
Can You Really Predict Crypto Trends?
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. If there were one word to describe the crypto market, that would be volatile. Or unpredictable. Or random. Ok, we can’t settle on one word, but you understand where we’re going with this. In its brief history as a standalone market, crypto has proven to be wildly erratic, making it challenging for even the experts in the field to predict, project, or guestimate the market’s direction. Today, we’ll try to decipher whether crypto trends are indeed identifiable or simply impossible to forecast. Let’s dive right in. — Why are crypto trends so hard to predict? - Crypto carries some unique features that make it harder to predict than traditional markets. We’ve done the research for you, and here is a list of those reasons to help you contextualize this reasoning: Crypto is new: when a market is as new as crypto, it’s hard to find enough information that would lead you to make a buying or selling decision on an asset. Indecision leads to frequent price fluctuations., Security concerns: blockchain technology is a work in progress, a new breed of technology that many struggle to understand and others try to manipulate. Security concerns around the architecture and functionality of the technology can lead to sell-offs., Fraud and manipulation — being so new, crypto is a market polluted with...
Catching up with Polkastars: Blockchain Monster Hunt
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. We’re back with one more installation of our “Catching up with Polkastars” series where we reach out to projects that have had their IDO with Polkastarter to check on their progress, updates and evolution. Polkastarter has become known for helping projects take ideas to market but what has helped us stand the test of time is the deep and meaningful relationships we develop with projects. We care to see them succeed post-IDO which is why we always check in with them to see how things are going. Today’s feature stars Blockchain Monster Hunt, a play-to-earn crypto game where players continuously explore new places on the blockchain to hunt and battle monsters. It’s the first multi-chain game that runs entirely on the blockchain itself. Each block on the blockchain is a unique digital space where a limited number of monsters (of the same DNA gene and rarity) may exist. — What has the Blockchain Monster Hunt team been up to since the IDO? - Let’s look at some stats. Here’s what the project has to show 6 months since Mainnet launch: 🕹109,185 #players worldwide ⚔️ 8,658,285 #PvEs fought 🤝18,000+ #NFTs traded ⚡️25,000+ monsters staked The Blockchain Monster Hunt team were hard at work following the IDO, launching a bunch of interesting features — What is the main thing Blo...
Intellectual Property in The Metaverse: How Will It Work Exactly?
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. When discussing Intellectual Property (IP), we usually refer to literary and artistic works, designs, logos, symbols, and imagery. In the world, as we know it, we have laws and procedures that establish ownership which begs the question: What happens in the Metaverse when all of the above come together to create immersive experiences? The IP logic dictates that if, for example, a game developer is unable to prevent third parties from freely accessing and distributing their creation, how are they going to make money? In the metaverse, this entire logic is reversed. Gaming enthusiasts, developers, and players expect developers to release their codebase on an open-source basis so that the game mechanics can be verified on a trustless basis. Moreover, the community can further develop assets for the game, enrich the code and help it develop faster than ever before. Consequently, what prevents anyone from copying and redistributing the game? The answer is found in the brilliance that has made this technology as promising as anything we’ve seen in our lifetime. You see, playing the game is no longer the only reason people get involved with gaming. The introduction of NFTs has changed gaming mechanics, allowing players to earn as they play. This is where IPD starts to come into the picture. The value of the NFTs ...
The Current State of Infrastructure
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. In this article, we outline the basic elements of blockchain infrastructure and analyze the challenges they’re facing. — Node Infrastructure (MC — US$10B-50B) - The bulk of the market share is represented by Infura (Consensys) and Alchemy. Due to their centralized nature, if any of these node providers were to encounter a fault or accident, the entire blockchain would suffer downtime. In response, decentralized node providers such as Pocket Network have emerged, although their market share remains small. Most Ethereum Hosted Nodes are run by the node infrastructure providers with Geth, which is the Ethereum Client. Hence, it’s all masked under Geth. Decentralized node providers are becoming increasingly relevant if we take into account that businesses such as Infura and Alchemy usually depend on a single cloud provider. This poses a high risk for the network as nodes are centralized on the servers of a few major companies. In fact, 69% of the 65% of Ethereum nodes hosted in data centers are distributed among three providers. Running on a centralized infrastructure exposes networks to censorship and service interruptions. Hypothetically, if Ethereum nodes were not to comply with government regulations, AWS could be required to stop hosting them and 33% of the network would go offline. &mda...
$POLS is Listed on Three Major Centralized Exchanges
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. Last week, Polkastarter’s native token POLS was listed on leading exchange Kraken, making POLS the first decentralized launchpad token to be listed on Binance, Coinbase and Kraken, three major exchanges. In this article we recap the possible reasons behind this, read on! 👇 As you may know, centralized exchanges are heavily regulated entities and have strict KYC procedures in place for both retail and enterprise users. Due to the nature of their business and their large user bases, they need to carry out ruthless due diligence processes before listing a token. — What do exchanges take into account? - Exchanges will go deep into the founders’ backgrounds and history, assessing any previous successes or failures and checking for any malice. Senior team members usually receive the same rigorous background checks, looking for signs that they are capable of maintaining high standards of delivery. When it comes to the product itself, exchanges prioritize projects with an ambitious but realistic roadmap, indicating potential value in their listings further down the road. An engaged community of holders will certainly help, but a clear token utility strategy is essential as it will make or break the adoption of a token when speculation blows over. In a space where rug pulls and scams abound, exchange...

The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. Another week, another catch-up with a project we hosted on Polkastarter. This week, we check on the progress of Ethernity, a community-driven NFT platform that provides you with limited-edition, authenticated NFTs. Ethernity is a groundbreaking NFT and web3 ecosystem which offers authenticated and fully licensed artwork, collectibles, and metaverse wearables in partnership with globally recognized brands, individuals, and artists. — What has the Ethernity team been up to since the IDO? - Since the IDO on Polkastarter, Ethernity has partnered with many of the world’s most recognized brands, artists, and sports stars to create an impressive library of high-quality NFT artworks, collectibles, and metaverse wearables.

NFT Domains: Everything You Need To Know
The Polkastarter blog has moved! Visit blog.polkastarter.com to read this article and stay up to date with Polkastarter. If you’re trembling at the thought of yet another NFT definition, fear not, as that is not what will happen here. We’ve defined NFTs, talked about the future of NFTs, the future of NFT marketplaces, and even how to store NFT metadata. Today, we will talk about how NFTs are set to revolutionize the idea, architecture, and usability of website domains. Let’s dive right in. — How do web2 domains work? - While we all know what a website is, not many of us know much about what goes on behind the scenes to make websites work. What’s a domain, what’s website hosting, and what are TLDs? These definitions make up the entire web2 ecosystem as we know it. A domain is a website address. It’s what we type in the address bar to access a website, e.g., www.polkastarter.com. Hosting refers to the storage of webpages in servers. To have a functioning website, you need both: a domain and hosting space. Normally servers can only be addressed by a unique IP-address which consists of numbers, but numbers are hard to remember. For this reason, you can register a domain name which maps to the IP-address of a web server. Domain names consist of two main parts — a second-level domain (SLD) and a top-level domain (TLD). Second-level domains consist of words or phrases, while top-level domains are predeter...

|Mummy.io Announces Partnership With Polkastarter As Demo Release Approac...
The non-fungible token (NFT) space has been used to innovate across multiple sectors, but the gaming and entertainment industry has seen the biggest benefits. These digital assets have allowed companies to create new universes and models for fans to connect with their favorite artists, or for players to earn real-world rewards while playing their favorite games.
However, as more people jump into Web3 and NFT gaming, more projects try to copy-paste others and the sector loses innovation, creativity, and the features that attracted users in the first place. Mummy.io is a blockchain-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) looking to change the status quo.
The game will put players in a rich world based on ancient Egypt, built with Unreal Engine 5, Mummy.io will be like nothing users have seen in the past. The main complaint for NFT gaming has been its little attention to detail, mechanics, and graphics, Mummy.io will disrupt all of that.
According to the project’s Whitepaper, this is how Mummy.io will revolutionize the sector, the experience will be like that of titles created by major gaming studios:
The player has endless freedom to make choices during the game - whether to embark upon a sidequest, the parts of the world they choose to explore, how they engage with NPCs, and much more. The Mummy world is also rich in lore, environmental storytelling and intricate relationships between memorable NPCs for those who delight in exploring fantasy worlds,...
