Ultiverse Becomes First MetaFi Partner on Manta Network’s NPO Platform
Manta Network, the fastest zero-knowledge layer one protocol focused on on-chain privacy, is pleased to onboard Ultiverse as the first MetaFi partner on its new platform, NPO. NPO, Manta Network’s upcoming platform for launching zkNFTs and zkSBTs, will be utilized by ecosystem projects to mint privacy-enhanced nonfungible assets for use within their applications.
Ultiverse is committed to constructing a metaverse platform on web3 that offers many user experiences. Using MetaFi and cutting-edge Dapps, Ultiverse aims to create a diverse and inclusive community of users. The platform will feature a matrix of different media, including virtual reality, to offer users an immersive experience. Similar to the “Oasis” from “Ready Player One,” Ultiverse’s metaverse platform will be a dynamic and interactive space that allows for creativity and exploration.
By leveraging the zkSBT functionality offered through NPO, Ultiverse will release a new game called Meta Merge. Meta Merge allows users to capture their favorite pets, organize a team to defeat enemies, mint zkNFTs, and embark on a magical adventure in the monster world. In the Meta Merge world, 300+ pets are waiting for users to collect. All pets can evolve, and there are multiple evolutionary forms awaiting exploration.
On the NPO platform, Meta Merge is more than just a simple monster-collecting game. All pets in Meta Merge can be molded into one-of-a-kind NFTs, which can be freely traded on secondary markets. Whitelist users can mint an NFT for free. Meta Merge is a strategy game, where users can line up their battle teams and use rules such as race restrictions and team alignment to win freely. As a casual game, Meta Merge also rewards users for simply hanging out.
Kenny Li, co-founder of Manta Network, said, “I’m excited to see such a creative and engaging use of zkSBTs with an on-chain game that captures the essence of many of the wonderful experiences of my childhood. ZkSBTs will bring an element of on-chain privacy to protect Ultiverse users as they explore the monster-filled world of Meta Merge.”
Jimmy, Co-founder of Ultiverse, said: “We are thrilled to be the first MetaFi partner on Manta Network’s NPO platform. Through this partnership, we strive to provide a unique experience to Meta Merge’s NFT holders, particularly regarding Layer 2 and on-chain privacy. Users will be able to obtain zkSBTs by playing the Meta Merge game and engage in Manta Network NPO’s journey.”
NPO is a decentralized zkNFT/zkSBT Launchpad that combines zero-knowledge technology with NFTs, enabling private minting and verification. With NPO, users can easily mint NFTs and SBTs while maintaining the privacy of their crypto assets. By leveraging Manta Network’s zkAddress tooling, NPO enables users to mint NFT/SBT on their zkAddress while using public addresses’ tokens to pay for the minting fee. Manta’s NPO platform is a game-changer in web3. It enables the launch of zkSBTs, which are private and user-friendly SBTs. Leveraging Manta’s MantaPay ZK circuit, NPO provides a secure and decentralized way for users to mint and verify NFTs and SBTs, ensuring that all transactions are conducted with the utmost privacy and confidentiality.
