Neal Stephenson’s Lamina1 Reveals New Partners For Its Open Metaverse

CEO says, ‘We intend to listen, learn, and deliver something of vision and value’

Layer 1 blockchain optimised for the open metaverse, Lamina1 has announced the launch of its early access program to kickstart the onboarding of diverse and vibrant content as well as infrastructure builders from gaming, film, and music.

This is a critical step in bringing the metaverse to life as imagined by company chairman Neal Stephenson – the very same that first coined the word ‘metaverse’ in his 1992 novel Snow Crash.

Selected projects include HTC, Dubit,, and NEON — all of which will play a critical role in testing tools and resources on Lamina1 while providing feedback that will shape its development into performant and thoughtfully-designed infrastructure that activates the open metaverse’s trillion-dollar economy.

“We aim to enable the ambitious builders and storytellers that will conceive and construct the open metaverse — a thriving, immersive internet rich with connected experiences, and owned by its makers,” said Rebecca Barkin, CEO of Lamina1.

“There is utility in blockchain; strong use cases, experience design and tooling is the catalyst we need to offer content creators new inspiration and economic opportunity. At this early stage of development, we intend to listen, learn, and deliver something of vision and value.”

Following the launch of the Lamina1 Testnet in January, the early access program seeks to offer a limited number of partners and developers support, documentation, and a tight feedback loop as they leverage blockchain and tooling.

Its initial members are a small group of developers that will receive personalised support in testing, integrating, and onboarding their tech and experiences onto Lamina1, with the opportunity to feature on the emerging open metaverse platform at launch.

Throughout the program, selected partners will be invited to provide a fresh perspective to improve design, features, and operations on Lamina1, with specialities ranging from content creation to infrastructure development, hardware, and tool building.

These initial partners include Dubit,, Mystic Moose, NEON, Patch XR, Rensa Games, Sons of a Bit, Walker Labs, Wevr, and
