Yuga Labs tests its Otherside metaverse : Here’s what Happened
During the highly anticipated load test of the metaverse, members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and holders of Otherdeeds made it to the Otherside on July 6th.
About 2500 Otherdeed holders entered the Otherside for the first time on Wednesday during the metaverse's load test.
The two load tests and the First Trip tech demo itself were only available to desktop and laptop users with at least one Otherdeed NFT in North America and Europe.
Otherside Load Test: Details about what happened
The 2500 holders leapt, ran, and communicated in the Otherside for almost 30 minutes to determine what the technology could manage.
Steve (@NFTbark), a BAYC holder, described his experience on the first Otherside load test. He began by stating how, at first, there were some sign-in issues for him and many other holders. After entering, the holders could add a name to their profile or change the appearance of their character.
Furthermore, he added that the characters were generic and didn’t have faces. Also, there wasn’t any kind of landscape. The members were provided with text chat and a proximity-based voice chat.
Likewise, according to a social media post following the test, many holders of Otherdeed were pleased with what they observed.
“Extremely impressed with the @OthersideMeta stress test today,” BAYC member Adam Hollander tweeted following the test. “Thousands of active players running around as 3D models with absolutely zero lag Bullish and excited for July 16th Nicely done @yugalabs.”
