Momentum is supported by the EU

The ERDF program of the EU is supporting the creation of a decentralised, open-source metaverse utility with a contribution of 750.000 euro.

Only open-source and decentralised tools will enable an online society to thrive. The EU recognises the potential of technologies like crypto (tokens), NFTs and immersive 3D to contribute to the society of the 21st century, when used and developed right.

Odyssey has received a grant from the EU of 750.000 euro to build its Momentum World Builder, making it possible for everyone to build a (3D) environment and own it too. With web3 tools and crypto economic infrastructure integrated, everyone is enabled to shape the governance of their own world any way they want.

With this grant, the EU is supporting the development of open-source technology and permissionless metaverse utilities.
