Google Plus to Close! Where to now for Opensim Virtual?

It is a sad day to learn that Google plus social media platform will be shutting over the next ten months. This really is a bitter disappointment and a blow to the Opensim community that has come to rely on it to reach a wider public than just the Second Life community. I saw the potential to reach existing and new Opensim users as soon as they launched it back in December 2012. It wasn't perfect but it had an easy names policy and I just went for it and created the Opensim Virtual community which everyone knows has been a great success. I think it was the first and grew quickly to lead the field with over 2000 members while others opened their own communities for services and in support of grids. Opensim Virtual turned into a popular community for news and promotions as well as help and friendly advice and social exchange.


I personally feel the loss considering how much time and effort I have put in to developing the community over the years. In the early days I pretty much worked alone in posting topics of interest to give the community life and material of interest. But others saw how useful it was to communicate and promote so it didn't take long before others started posting too. It just kept growing because Opensim was getting better anyway and more grids were opening so that today there are many G+ communities on all kinds of subjects from Hypergrid travelling to support groups for the hundreds of grids that make up the Opensim Metaverse.

Opensim Virtual As it was on day 1, December 2012
Opensim Virtual has always been at the heart of the Hypergrid community along with many other groups so it would be a shame to loose such a powerful platform that brings community together. I don't know yet what I personally will do but there are options and I still have my web site and grid at Farworldz. Perhaps there is a case for using Discord and connect it here on Metaverse Traveller. Each article, rather than having a comments section would display a full Chat window and Opensim Virtual forum to support the community and invite promotions as part of it. There may be other ways that are better. I am going to have to do the research and work on it double quick because time is short.


Opensim Virtual as it is today


All I can say right now is Opensim Virtual is still open and doing well so I have time to promote again once a new plan is set. Just watch this web site and Opensim Virtual for the latest news.

Time to sit down, have a virtual drink ( a real one too!) and think.

  8. EGO.com, a Cardano-based NFT services provider with an iconic name, has been making rounds within the NFT space. This up-and-coming project with a promise to facilitate a “Digital Renais-sance in art” is quickly gaining a “crypto gem” reputation in the current bear market.

    EGO.com, a decentralized creative realm for artists and collectors, is quickly gaining the attention of retail and institutional investors within the Cardano ecosystem. Harnessing the power of Non-Fungible Token (NFT) technology, EGO.com has marketed itself as the key player in facilitating the NFT market transition from “JPEGs with bragging rights” to a “Digital Renaissance” in art.

    The project has seen substantial investor interest, even within an otherwise squeamish market dominated by ‘bearish’ sentiment. EGO.com private sale, which has been running since May 25, has been attracting record numbers of investors who have been persuaded by the potential of EGO.com to radically reshape the trajectory of modern art with the help of NFTs. The private sale is still ongoing (until June 15), and some of our readers may be eligible. Please reach out to sales@ego.com.

    EGO.com has also secured a strategic partnership with ADAX, a Cardano-based exchange, with an EGO.com public sale scheduled to take place on ADAX on June 16, with a 24-hour priority round for ADAX stakers. Projections derived from early private sale data indicate substantial investor interest, signaling the likelihood of a massively oversubscribed first round.

    About EGO.com
    EGO.com is a fully decentralized creative realm built on the backbone of Plutus smart contracts. Led by a team of artists, art dealers, and DeFi professionals, EGO.com is harnessing the power of NFT technology to ensure that artists and collectors make the most of their digital assets. Artists can show off their prowess by minting NFTs of their artwork. Collectors can earn rewards from staking their Cardano-based NFT collections. Investors can hedge against short-term price fluctua-tions in style. Every step towards the ‘Digital Renaissance’ in art, EGO.com is there to provide pro-fessional, 360° degree support for all of your NFT needs.
