Welcome to the new Decentraland Forum!
Hi, I'm Manuel, part of the development team of Decentraland.
Since we started the project with @eordano back in 2015, the team has grown a lot, as people started to get excited about building a decentralized virtual world.
I've been dreaming and thinking about VR since I was a kid. The idea of creating, inhabiting, and building stuff in a common virtual world thrilled me. But I couldn't help to think that whoever owned the world would have immense power, and control over the players (See Ready Player One by Ernest Cline). After working for years with blockchain technology, I realized it held the potential to solve this problem, so I started experimenting with the idea of a decentralized virtual world. That's how we got Decentraland started.
We're still far from realizing our vision, but it's now clear that something like this needs to happen. The potential is too big to not try this experiment out. We're going to make this happen, and hope you help us by giving feedback, and building awesome stuff in our shared world!
Thanks @HPrivakos for setting up this forum!
See you all around!
