Star Atlas, the blockchain-powered next-gen gaming metaverse, has launched its own feature-rich Marketplace, a decentralized exchange (DEX) that is fully integrated with Serum on the Solana blockchain. The integration with Serum enables the community worldwide to seamlessly trade meta-posters, spaceships and any other asset. This core launch lays the foundation for a full-fledged metaverse marketplace and allows users to manage all of their asset transactions.

Serum’s DEX protocol fulfills the needs of the expanding Star Atlas metaverse economy, bringing light speed settlement, near-zero operating costs, and a robust framework for a wide range of DeFi tools powered by Solana’s processing capabilities of over 50,000 transactions per second.

Leveraging Serum enables Star Atlas players to participate in play-to-earn and decentralized finance activities through a unique in-game interface. Users are able to access the decentralized Marketplace functionality simply by connecting their Solana ecosystem wallet, such as the community-preferred Phantom wallet, and trading their assets. “With this Serum integration, we have laid the foundations to a blockchain-powered experience that rewards players and gives power back to the people,” says Michael Wagner, CEO of Star Atlas.

Serum, launched by the Serum Foundation, is a complete, non-custodial spot and derivatives exchange running on an on-chain central limit order book (CLOB) capable of ultra-fast 400-millisecond updates. This speed is enabled by Solana, an ultra-fast Layer 1, Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain using innovative multi-threaded processing of transactions.

We’re happy to see the Serum DEX give rise to exciting, concrete use cases like supporting the NFT market of Star Atlas, and we’re excited to see where Star Atlas will go next as an immense metaverse MMO. Michael Burgess — Advisor to Serum

The Star Atlas team in collaboration with its partners will continue to expand the array and functionality of tools for the metaverse, enabling new ways for players to take destiny into their own hands.

With the support of teams at Solana and Serum, Star Atlas is equipped to offer the ultimate gateway into the future. We are humbled and grateful to be the pioneers of the inward expansion into the metaverse. As explorers on the collective frontier of humanity, we are delivering the features Star Atlas community worldwide needs, and opening up an entirely new industry-disrupting class of revenue opportunities. Pablo Quiroga — Star Atlas, Co-Founder & CRO
