If anyone is interested in Second Life or has any questions about buying land in SL, please ask.
I am really interested in Bitcoin as a currency for virtual world transactions.
As of now, you can run your own virtual world using OpenSim. Run your own 3D virtual world from your old server box. But the problem has always been currency in such an open environment. Bitcoin can solve this by allowing people to buy and sell goods with a secure currency that can not be manipulated by the hosting server.
In Second Life, the currency is the L$. It is secure because Linden Labs owns the tens of thousands of servers and all the fiber that connects them. But to make an 'open' 3d world, you also need an open currency...and this is where bitcoin can come into play.
Imagine a 3D world, that you can run from your computer, much like a webserver. People can teleport from 'world to world' much like they flip through web pages now....and the currency...BTC.
Any ideas or anything with this virtual world stuff? I'd love to answer anyone's questions...need to get my post count up anyway!
