Want one NFT that can be used across multiple platforms to transform into avatars, game items, exclusive game perks, course material, virtual land access, activate discounts, and much more? For this week’s spotlight, we’re introducing Metakey – an NFT that does precisely that.
What is Metakey?
The Metakey was first conceived to push and explore the boundaries of NFT utility and interoperability— a single key that could offer the holder hundreds of use-cases across the web3 environment for years to come, and connect with the most compelling projects that emerged over this time. The goal is to partner with both legendary and emerging NFT-native artists to empower each edition to stand as collectible and iconic art pieces in their own rights.
Metakey is an experiment exploring the unlimited use cases blockchain technology can bring to a token. Metakey as a project attempts to integrate one key for as many use cases as possible, in as many projects as they can. It is not a game in itself but an NFT that unlocks the Metaverse. The owner of a Metakey has the power to unlock NFT bonuses in games that have partnered with them. It is an NFT that unlocks the Metaverse.
Metakey founder Matty S. AKA DCLBlogger was an early adopter of Decentraland and made his mark trading in virtual land prior to launching the DCLBlogger brand becoming a respected NFT community voice on Twitter and YouTube.

But this isn’t limited to gaming, you can also receive exclusive airdrops, discount coupons, giveaways, and even physical merchandise through owning a Metakey. There is a secret area open in Decentraland to those who possess certain art NFTs from a partner site attached to your Metakey.
