Additionally, it plans to improve performance to ensure users enjoy an immersive and smooth experience in the metaverse even on low-budget phone devices.
Highlights of the Manifesto: Year of the Creators
Content and experiences are crucial to building a compelling metaverse in Decentraland. Therefore, creators on the platform are an integral part of its ecosystem. These are artists who deliver virtual worlds built on codes, shapes, and colors.
These creators craft experiences to be had, feelings o the world, Wearables for avatars, and Emotes that transform them into expressions of the holder. These creators bring life to Decentraland. 2023 will see the Foundation empowering everyone in its community to become a creator.
It will do this by offering accessible resources and tools they can use to create anything they imagine in Decentraland. It will eliminate barriers that restrict creativity and ensures artists’ works are easy to monetize.
Highlights of Roadmap in 2023
Every creator will be recognized and empowered in Decentraland in 2023. For instance, Scene Developers will have access to Decentraland Editor, SDK 7, and SDK Playground. They will have every resource they need for greater control over the camera, triggering avatar animations through scenes and creating smart wearables.
They will be able to access documentation and tutorials to guide them into effective creation. Wearable and Emote Creators will also have immersive tools, including Builder UX Improvements, Themed Campaigns in the Marketplace, FIAT Payments, and Better Discoverability in the Marketplace.
Highlights of Major Events in 2023
Decentraland reiterates that its platform is built for and by its community. Therefore, any user can create and contribute to Decentraland events.
