Decentraland users watched SpaceX launch on May 30 from the virtual reality world’s auditorium.
Users of the Ethereum-based virtual reality world Decentraland was able to view the historic launch of a space vehicle built in and launched from the United States in almost a decade.
Decentraland announced on May 30 that the recent SpaceX launch would be available live in its VR world.
Users were able to watch the event in the environment’s virtual auditorium as Elon Musk sent two humans into orbit in the first private, manned spacecraft launch in history.
This isn’t the first time inhabitants of the VR world, over 12,000 as of February 2020 have had unconventional access to major events.
While many countries were still in lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic, Decentraland virtually hosted the annual Coinfest Conference in March.
The platform raised $1 million during its ICO in 2017, allowing users to buy virtual parcels of land with the platform’s currency, MANA.
