Bringing People Together

We started off by organising the biggest blockchain hackathons in Europe. Thousands of people from all over the world travelled to the Dutch countryside to work out solutions to real-world problems in an abandoned sugar refinery.

Pioneering Digital Collaboration

When the pandemic hit, we realised that no existing online tool was good enough to host an engaging hackathon experience. So we built our own platform: Momentum – a 3D online mass collaboration arena.

Igniting the Metaverse

We refined Momentum together with some of our partners, and then it hit us: we had created a metaverse. We transitioned to a decentralised Web 3.0 ecosystem and joined the Kusama community. The Kusamaverse was born.

Going beyong flat 2D media

We learnt that Creators are eager to explore the digital format of 3D, but face time-consuming and unintuitive processes. So here we are: Odyssey, reborn from its ashes, is now the place for content creation, collaboration & community building in 3D.
