What does it mean to be a Meta Cat?
Well, for starters, it means I have 999,999,999 lives. This may seem like a lot, but just like mortals, Meta Cat can’t gain more lives. But what good are these lives if they have no purpose? Just like those of real people, Meta Cat’s lives need purpose for Meta Cat to feel fulfilled.
Meta Cat is, after all, a cat of the metaverses, and shall seek to bring value to people in real life and of the metaverses alike! Meta Cat is not a security; thus, I shall be a currency — a currency of the Metaverses!
There are several reasons why I choose to go the route of a metaverse currency. First, I belong in the metaverses — not only does it dovetail well with my branding, but it’s who I am in essence. The route of a metaverse currency also seems to be the soundest approach given the current regulatory climate surrounding cryptocurrencies, and responses/reactions to ways projects seek to add utility for their users. In short, we want to be able to appease any concerns or anxiety our community would have revolving around security designations when we propose utility for this token. Metaverses are one of the most viable use-cases of crypto and blockchains. A lot of other use-cases tend to be circular in the actual value they bring to their users — metaverses allow communities to be built, where its members can interact with one another in a unique and unobstructed way in a decentralized fashion. Metaverses only truly have promise if the systems governing them are indeed sufficiently decentralized — currencies — how goods and services will be exchanged in the metaverse — is one of those systems.
If a metaverse is sufficiently decentralized, think about all that can be accomplished on there. Think about the ways people can connect with each other and enrich each other’s lives — these are ways they currently wouldn’t be able to due to the constraints of social media UI. It’s no wonder that Facebook (now called Meta) is pivoting into such a space.
Being used as a metaverse currency also benefits the token from a tokenomics standpoint. Being used in isolation as a currency should take supply away from the decentralized exchanges, as its use on the metaverse increases.
In keeping with the theme of this article, we’re happy to announce our first competition! I’m getting awfully lonely in the metaverses — there’s no one to play with! So, I’d like you guys to make me some meta cat friends! This article will no doubt be posted on twitter — in replying to the tweet for this article, design me a meta cat friend, post a picture of them, and give them a backstory. Make sure to include their name, age, gender, and keep the rest of their backstory restricted to the number of characters ONE tweet permits. We will pick one winner based on backstory, and another based on the picture of the friend — both will win 1 ETH each, so make sure to do a meta marvelous job on both!
