Announcement: SORA's community and RMRK partner up!
RMRK is proud to announce a partnership with SORA's community through our Kanaria project and RMRK2.0 standards!
Kanaria is the most advanced NFT project in the world built on the world's most advanced NFT protocol: RMRK.
Kanaria NFTs are birds that can own and even equip other NFTs, building an item economy that can span not only different projects (automatic cross project compatibility) but also different chains due to being launched on Kusama - a "Layer 0" for chains to connect through. Kanaria are also the precursor to RMRK's upcoming metaverse - Kanaria: Skybreach.
SORA and RMRK have collaborated to combine SORA's and RMRK's feature sets and extend SORA-bonuses to existing and new Kanaria bird owners.
On SORA's end, SORA has committed to supporting the addition of RMRK's pallets into their runtime, thereby integrating natively with the world's most advanced NFT logic (the addition is still subject to community governance vote).
RMRK on the other hand will reward the top 100 crowdloaners participating in SORA's crowdloan. These champions will be airdropped a special Kanaria-compatible item - a child NFT that can be equipped onto one's Kanaria bird, and which will give the owner platform bonuses all across the SORA network, and may bestow advantages in RMRK's metaverse.
You do not have to have a Kanaria bird to get this bonus item, but you do have to be in the top 100 contributors. Those among the top 100 contribtors who do have a bird (any bird) in the moment of the crowdloan's close will get two items so that they can use them at the same time in SORA's network and in the RMRK metaverse.
Note: multiple birds does not mean you get multiple items. But, if you are within the top 100 contributors with more than 1 account, then yes, you would qualify for multiple items.
Among others, RMRK brings the following features to the NFT table:
- emoting to NFTs on chain
- custom burn messages
- NFTs owning NFTs
- NFTs that have conditional rendering (if this, show that)
- NFTs that have slots for upgrades
- NFTs that have multi-resources (i.e. contain both code for a game and high-res cover art)
- NFTs that can be governed as DAOs
It thereby far exceeds what the current ERC721 / ERC1155 standards and their derivatives can do.
SORA is both a new economic system that decentralizes the concept of a central bank as well as a network in the Polkadot ecosystem that will connect to the Polkadot relay chain and the parachains with built-in tools focused on DeFi, such as Polkaswap. The SORA network excels at providing tools for decentralized applications that use digital assets, such as atomic token swaps, bridging tokens to other blockchains, and creating programmatic rules involving digital assets. Recently, SORA has released the stable asset XSTUSD.
