Space-related altcoins have often fallen short of everything they've promised. Starship Optimus is here to change that with a slew of features that will massively impact the crypto community.
We're back with our latest project, Starship Optimus, a V2 project based on last year's successful Spacegrime. At its peak, it was up 60,000%, and Shiba Inu included this in their investment portfolio as the only other project they invested in. V1 was a fun project built completely on memes, but with our recent partnerships and robotics developments, V2 – Starship Optimus – is GameFI in its purest form.
But why rebrand to Starship Optimus?
The answer is simple: We became ready to step into the direction of closely integrating robotics, in addition to the space work we're doing and the SLA work we're working on with the Optimus Robot team; This vision became most relevant in our GameFI and EcoSphere work.
Starship Optimus offers the same successful features that SpaceGrime had and the reason it had accumulated 28,000 members in its first iteration, but bigger and better than before. The new website ( ) already showcases a variety of upcoming features and brilliantly executed roadmap that details its focus on GameFI, a fully integrated metaverse including retail, as well as a Space Simulation and EcoSphere program that had already been started last year with existing partners.
The developers behind this successful project are known for their ambition and big dreams in the cryptoverse, and countless times have they walked the walk and talked the talk: Pioneering in their scope of delivery, having delivered what they promised–an NFT Marketplace promised in 2021 and since then delivered in the form of BETA testing to the coin's long-term holders—Starship Optimus is in line to build upon their track record and create another groundbreaking project. It's no surprise that if V1 was shooting for the moon, V2 is aiming for Mars and further beyond that with a more grounded and attainable plan of action. Below are just a few of the features that Starship Optimus promises to bring to its holders:
A new way to buy and use $STOP Tokens
According to financial statistics research compiled by Fundera , cash vs credit card statistics show that 80% of consumers prefer spending with a card over cash; This statistic is slowly increasing on a yearly basis. While major credit card companies may not allow cardholders to purchase cryptocurrency with a credit card, the developers at Starship Optimus are boldly going where other crypto projects fear to tread by already working with a company (name undisclosed at this time) to allow users to buy $STOP tokens with it as well as pay for everyday purchases with $STOP, and even allow certain brand retail purchases with this card. Currently, we've seen these same features only begin to happen with major coins like Bitcoin which started in 2009. The fact alone that an altcoin still in its infancy stage is working on making this a reality is only the tip of the iceberg that is the ambition that the Starship Optimus team carries with them.
Promising developments on the EcoSphere started in V1
The last we had heard of the team's innovative approach to food and flora production in space-simulated conditions, land was still being surveyed. For those not in the know, The EcoSphere was first announced late 2021 – a project that would bring about the world's first EcoSphere created on Earth where food for space would soon be grown in space-simulated conditions to the public before growing it on Mars.
Now, the Starship Optimus team have secured a robotics company partnership that will allow them to continue its development; and not only that–it's been determined that this unique EcoSphere will be located in none other than Nevada, USA. No EcoSphere project of this size exists currently within the US and Europe. In line with the announcement and imminent launch of the Starship Optimus Space Program, the EcoSphere will be one of many initiatives that will undergo major progress up until the space program's launch and availability to the public.
One Metaverse to rule them all…but make it crypto
The buzz around Starship Optimus' social media accounts have long talked about what their version of a metaverse will look like. The team promises that this metaverse will be essentially a one-stop retail solution that encompasses everything from social media, gambling, streaming, and even entertainment. It's only now been revealed that quite a few famous meme tokens are on board with Starship Optimus and are gearing up for the launch! This, however, is only a small part of what the metaverse will be: This metaverse would include a multi-chain SWAP, an integrated NFT marketplace with tradeable collateral, a retail ecosystem, as well as direct food purchase from the team's EcoSphere, all in one spot.
Real Estate through NFTs
Starship Optimus has a developmental roadmap that aims to bring the minting and decentralization of NFTs to a whole different level by incorporating Real Estate in and out of the metaverse. Traditional aspects of a metaverse will still be included such as homes, land, hangouts, and other venues with one very important key element: $STOP NFTs. In the metaverse, users will be able to use $STOP NFTs to build those plots of land and sell them at a premium so you're not just selling a piece of land and a cookie cutter home in the metaverse but one built with scarce NFTs minted by you. And if digital real estate is not enough, the team is also tapping into the real estate market here on Earth! How that works is pretty simple: holders will actually be able to sell their own homes or shares of it as NFTs on the platform, hence getting much more massive pricing than the regular real estate market – something that we know will heavily disrupt the housing market on a global scale.
A Space Program for the common man
The outstanding factor that sets apart the Starship Optimus team against other altcoins that have proposed a space program and fallen short, is the team's extensive expertise with world-renowned companies such as Microsoft, Tesla, and even SpaceX themselves. With a proven background in innovation and space technology, the team already boasts that not only is a space program achievable by their hand, but also a lot more cost-effective when integrating with an existing space company–something that the team plans to take on when creating and developing this space program. Plans for this space program includes a promise to the Starship Optimus community that announcements and first payload will be sent out this year, putting the team on track to have human usage begin in as little as two years.
NFT Marketplace integration into the metaverse
When you have a team whose expectations and ambitions are as infinite as Space itself, it's only fair to also consider that absolutely every detail is meticulously planned to the point of perfection. While the initial launch of the NFT Marketplace launched and put the core platform out in BETA mode, the team has since set their sights on metaverse and GameFI integration, both of which are currently in progress this year. But of course, with BETA testing available to holders, an extensive list of recommendations also has been provided to the developers as they continue working on phase 2 of the marketplace.
A deeper look into GameFI
Lovers of all things retro and fans of graphic displays can rejoice! Starship Optimus' GameFI comes in the form of two aspects, ensuring that gamers and crypto-enthusiasts of all kinds will enjoy no matter what their preferences are:
- If you loved Space Invaders, Star Fox, and other pixelated games found on the NES or SNES, you'll love the retro aspect of these games that also use space related characters, space debris and tons of other asteroid-like collateral that can be purchased and used not just in-game, but also in the metaverse.
- For our story-driven folks and high quality graphic lovers, does the Black Mirror game ring any bells? Users will be able to benefit from the same purchasing features while also playing games that are highly intuitive and story-driven, with many choices that will affect your storyline.
The features in this article are all a part of Starship Optimus' initial roadmap, covering all the way to Q1 of 2023. Who knows what else is in store as plans for each continue to unveil and develop? One thing is for sure, this is a team that loves to keep us on our toes, and with everything they've already promised and delivered in the past, we've got plenty of amazing things coming our way with this project. With so much to look forward to, you won't want to miss a single second of the journey.
