When we were sketching out our priorities for the Galia Merchants store, on the top of our list was accepting payment in crypto. We are firmly committed to Web3 and want to play our part in furthering the development of this technology. But what if we could enable payments in Atlas? That would be a first and create a new external utility for Star Atlas’s in-game currency.
Michael Wagner, CEO of Star Atlas, has often discussed how people will be conducting business within its virtual economy.
There's a very real potential and high likelihood that people start consuming their digital purchases through 3D immersive environments instead of shopping on a 2D website. You're logged into your avatar, maybe you're playing a game, maybe you're hanging out with some friends, and while you're sitting there socializing, you're also going through your shopping list. Then you pay with digital currency, and it gets delivered to your physical residence. There's nothing preventing that from happening.
We agree, and we are excited to be the first organization to deliver physical Star Atlas products using Atlas.
