Upon exploring the website, one can discover the opportunity to acquire Metaverse properties and preview the WAGMI Temple Alpha Flyover trailer, providing a glimpse of the forthcoming Metaverse environment.
The trailer showcases 112-second footage of the WAGMI Temple, highlighting a tranquil setting adorned with verdant greenery, majestic mountains, pristine waters, and Japanese-style temples. The stunning graphics are a testament to the utilization of the Unreal Engine.
Early Land Sale Stages
Meanwhile, land purchases can only be made by integrating a Metamask wallet. Some users have asked for diversification to include more wallet options. Notably, users will need Ethereum (ETH) to bid or purchase land, but they will also have to lock up their DogeKiller (LEASH) or SHIBOSHI tokens for the first two stages of the early sale phase.
The preliminary sales phase comprises three distinct stages: Bid Event, Holders Event, and Public Sales. The Bid Event, which will span three days, enables participants to bid on Metaverse lands. This event gives users an exclusive opportunity to secure the initial batch of lands for themselves.
During the Holders Event, which will last for 7 days, participants unable to mint lands in the Bid Event will have a chance to acquire lands without bidding. In this event, lands will be available at set prices, eliminating the need for auction-style bidding. It’s worth noting that participation in the Bid and Holders Events is exclusively for LEASH and SHIBOSHIS holders.
The Public Sale marks the third and final stage of the initial land sale phase, and it is accessible to all participants without any restrictions or prerequisites. Unlike the Bid and Holders Events, the Public Sale does not require users to hold or lock LEASH or SHIBOSHIS to participate. This stage presents an open opportunity for interested individuals to acquire Metaverse lands.
