Designed by leading architects and artists from AAA game studios, the new KEYS Metaverse will enable users to create interactive communities that bridge digital and physical realms.
KEYS Token, a startup powering real-estate and luxury-asset transactions on the blockchain, announces the launch of Meta Mansions by KEYS (“Meta Mansions”), a first- of-its-kind residential community of 8,888 virtual NFT luxury mansions built inside the new KEYS Metaverse on the Ethereum blockchain. Today’s private launch will allow whitelisted KEYS Token holders to gain exclusive access to the Meta Mansions NFT mint, with additional benefits to come in the forthcoming KEYS Metaverse.
The Meta Mansions NFT collection was created for the unique mobile-first KEYS Metaverse that is built on Unreal Engine (UE) 5 – the most advanced digital game engine in the world – for an immersive, true-to-life user experience. Those who mint a Meta Mansion will be airdropped a plot of land in the KEYS Metaverse that will become a fully interactive, customizable, and livable environment in high-fidelity VR/AR/3D space. Features include eight unique biomes within the KEYS Metaverse, exclusive skins and texture packs, and more. Users will be able to monetize their mansions as well as gain unique access, benefits, and discounts within the KEYS Metaverse.

“We chose to partner with some of the most influential architects and 3D designers in the world to build Meta Mansions by KEYS, including celebrity architect Kobi Karp, Compass Architects, and Veliz Arquitecto, our lead 3D designer. The combination of bringing experts from both architecture and 3D graphics was essential to bring our vision to life,” said Navjeet Chhina, head of Metaverse development at KEYS and Founder, Genius Ventures Inc. “For the KEYS Metaverse, we chose to use Unreal Engine 5 because developers have access to the source code, which makes it very adaptable to our goals. In order to provide users the highest quality [AAA] and most engaging KEYS Metaverse experience, we’re leveraging Genius Ventures’ team of artists, engineers, and game developers sourced from the world’s top AAA game and Hollywood studios, along with experts in networking and game design that we’ve brought onboard specifically for the KEYS Metaverse project.”
To mint a Meta Mansions NFT, people must first hold a minimum of 100 KEYS Tokens. Holding additional KEYS Tokens grants access to the LoyalKey program, a tiered rewards and loyalty program. Users will be able to enhance their Meta Mansions and expand their experience in the KEYS Metaverse through game play, participation in platform governance, and with KEYS Tokens, as additional utilities and assets will be rolled out in the coming KEYS Metaverse.

“Meta Mansions is the genesis of our industry-leading mobile-first KEYS Metaverse, bringing accessibility to all,” said Nima Ghassemi, Chief Executive Officer, KEYS Token. “One of the most exciting features of Meta Mansions is its ability to bring people together in a way that they never have been able to in Web2. Building on Web3 has allowed us to create new mediums that foster deep connections. We’ve watched as the community has already grown pre-mint with investment from Fortune 500 CEOs, celebrities, professional athletes, real-estate moguls, and more. This unprecedented level of connection, combined with limitless active and passive-income generation capabilities, positions Meta Mansions to be a real game changer for blockchain and Web3.”
