Lepasa - The Idea and Startup Story
2021 has been crazy or we may say the craziest year for the Crypto community. DeFi & NFTs have stolen the show from top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. It is such strong evidence that NFTs are bringing a massive number of “New Crypto Owners” to the industry. A scenario where a new user buying any crypto for the first time to buy NFT is too common nowadays.
They had started working on the “NFT” concept back in late 2020 when Cryptopunks were everywhere & the entire industry was in awe of the pixel arts. On that very day they had decided that if they are going to NFTs, it has to be something else, not just one another project in the crowd.
Being in Blockchain Tech for almost a decade, their seasoned & dedicated team suggested having an equal proportion of Tech & Art go ahead. Oh WOW! That was one strong statement that laid the founding stone for this world-class Fine Art 3D Game Ready NFT project.
They onboarded world-renowned Traditional Fine Art Artists, and CGI Artists and formed a strong bond with the Tech team. Even though NFTs have been one of the largest real-world use cases of blockchain and smart contracts to date, their adoption has been unidimensional. NFTs have been restricted to GIFs and JPEGs in popular culture, failing to incorporate the vastness the technology is capable of.
Lepasa - Products and Services
Virtual lands are envisioned as spaces where anyone can go and hang out with their friends via a monitor or through their virtual reality headset. Eventually, enthusiasts expect metaverse real estate properties to support virtual structures, where users can build whatever they’d like. But contrary to the fact most of the existing options are either low poly, cartoonish, or tokenised games. It is difficult to think of a real, immersive experience in the current scenario.
Web 3.0 will lay the foundation for the phenomenal evolution of the Internet. That’s the reason the millennials are flocking into this, their expectations from metaverse could be immense in the context of enhanced experiences, gamification, and financial gains. True to the belief of web 3.0, they are adding a 3D layer to the existing model of the tokenised, low poly/2D version of the constrained metaverses. They are building an enthralling, immersive 3D visual experience. A planned Metaverse will provide immense opportunities to participants.

Lepasa - Growth
Their Launch event was one of the most exciting and successful events so far, as mentioned above they had 200+ customers on day 1. They have been working constantly and their user base is growing constantly since.
The integration of blockchain technology with the real-estate could bring a revolution in the industry & will result in a lot of benefits including increased trust, enhanced loyalty, proficient data management, and access to real-time information. They have added a layer of state-of-the-art conceptualization & planning to bridge the gap between virtual & real. To create a Virtually-Real experience, it needs to perceive, conceptualize & planned as a real-world project.

Right from the ideation phase to town planning, they have followed real-world objectives & principles.
