MetaDojo’s partner DeStore, who specializes in decentralized commerce, launched a series of engaging and informative AMA sessions at their custom-made Dojo earlier this week. During this session, both voice and text chat features that are built-in in all Dojos were adopted so the audience could ask questions and interact with the hosts in real time, in the metaverse way. Here are some of the key questions our community asked.

Who is Josiah and Lisa?

Based in Yowah (Australian Outback), our hosts Josiah and Lisa extract the most unique and natural opals while also being mindful of their impact on the environment. They mine exclusively using renewable energy, and use a small jackhammer 10 meters underground to extract the precious stones.

They work alongside other locals in the opal industry and their story is being featured worldwide as the Digi Diggers on the popular television show “Outback Opal Hunters” on Discovery Channel.

Who is DeStore?

DeStore is a community oriented multi-chain NFT minter which aims to lead the way in decentralized commerce in the Polkadot Ecosystem. The platform is positioned to be a dedicated Phygital Marketplace empowering DAOs, SMEs and Creators to start selling phygital assets on Web 3.0 native infrastructure.

Offering a unique solution for an emerging market, the DeStore team has built a protocol that is based on RMRK 1.0 minting standards, but optimized for real world assets with a digital twin. Creating a Digital Twin for real world items enables real world assets to be identified virtually, this is done via easy to use pathways that allow users to trade peer to peer in an immersive digital reality.

What are Party Rocks?

The Party Rock Collection is the first phygital test to prove DeStore’s concept of combining the physical and digital realms, allowing you to enjoy the beauty and uniqueness of your physical necklace, while also having a secure and easily accessible digital version.

The Party Rock Collection is a limited edition release of phygital necklaces that are truly one-of-a-kind. Each necklace is handcrafted with a unique Australian opal that has been formed by the natural elements over millions of years. They can contain all the colors of the rainbow, combined with beautiful natural patterns, which make them stand out when worn. They are suspended from a rugged leather string, giving them a rustic and stylish look.

How will DeStore partners with MetaDojo?

DeStore Network and MetaDojo have joined forces to revolutionize the future of e-commerce by seamlessly integrating DeStore’s cutting-edge decentralized commerce platform into MetaDojo’s state-of-the-art virtual 3D spaces. This pioneering partnership is set to take the customer experience to new heights, as it brings together the best of both worlds — the security and decentralization of web 3.0 commerce with the immersive and interactive capabilities of the metaverse.

Josiah Kotzur, Co-Founder of Digi Diggers and DeStore
