Anybody can now visit an art gallery or virtual home inside Somnium Space through the web by simply clicking on a link. Somnium Web loads one parcel, limiting the amount of data and processing power required. Through their browser users can voice and video chat with other people inside the same virtual location.

Somnium Web uses WebXR, making it compatible through open-source software with potentially the rest of the blockchain metaverse. Landowners now have a new way to attract people to their online events, as a simple click on a link can teleport people into the virtual world.

The developers announced Somnium Web back in October 2020. The feature was originally scheduled for a December release.

What is Somnium Space?

Somnium Space is a virtual world in which landowners can build whatever they want to. The program registers landownership on the Ethereum blockchain. In addition all players can visit these creations and interact with each other. The developers have created Somnium Space with VR headsets in mind, even though players can also access to world through their desktop, laptop, or mobile devices.

Value of land in Somnium Space has been increasing incredibly over the year. We can also see this increased demand for virtual land in other virtual worlds and even in blockchain-powered video games. League of KingdomsBrave Frontier Heroes and Axie Infinity are just a few of the examples that offer digital land to their players.

The cheapest lands in Somnium Space cost more than one thousand dollars, or 1.1 ETH. This will get you a small land parcel of 200m2. However, the bigger ones go up in price. The cheapest medium parcel of 600m2 costs 2.5 ETH, which is currently 2500 dollars. An XL parcel will cost you at least double that amount.
