After years of hard work and much anticipation, the RFOX VALT SHOP auction is finally live! We enter this moment with much appreciation to the people at the RFOX VALT team who made this milestone possible and especially our ever-supportive community. However, this is just the beginning for our work in turning our vision of the metaverse into reality, and we also offer you a new roadmap for the next steps in the process. Join us as we talk more about this landmark step in the RFOX VALT journey.
If you missed last week's blog, never fear; you can read it here. Here’s the summary of what you missed:

RFOX VALT SHOP Owner's Guide release
We have opened the RFOX VALT metaverse to the first batch of people who will own SHOPs at the Callinova quarter. As of 4 PM today (September 17, Vietnam time), we have officially closed the auction on SHOP 1, which went to our first official SHOP owner through a bid worth 2,000,009 million RFOX.
With a lot of shops still available for auction over the next few hours, we’ve started to notice some emerging patterns in the bidding and locations process for our auction participants. Here are some quotes we have got from the community so far:
“Day 1 of the auctions and the bids are already through the roof!”
“Shop 14 has best lines of sight/visibility plus on the route from station to plaza, borders plaza and is most central location.... lowest current bid. All the action is still to come.”
“If you see a shop the moment you step out of a train, I would say it is more valuable that some shop far away.”
“I think Shop 1 might be a steal as it sets the price floor only 1 hour to go.”
“Smart people are waiting for last minutes to put their bids...”
At this point, we encourage everyone to join our ever-growing RFOX community on Telegram and Discord. It could work to your advantage as you plan your bids accordingly in these last few exciting hours of the auction.
To give you a visualization of the metaverse we’re building so far on RFOX VALT, we give you two videos. First, we look behind the scenes of those working on the construction of Callinova and the RFOX VALT.
Next, we provide actual footage of the interior of our SHOPs inside the RFOX VALT, as filmed through a VR headset inside the build. SHOP owners will have a choice of 5 interior templates and will be able to choose which NFTs to display via our SHOP owners’ portal.
Last week, we showed you templates, outside designs, some of the customizations and many more features, and even a VR walkthrough using the Oculus headset. This week, we have a comprehensive FAQ video on the SHOP auction, which you can view below.
This week, as promised, we have created The SHOP Owners’ Guide to the RFOX VALT. It includes important information about RFOX VALT, the SHOPs in it, your roles, responsibilities, and benefits as owners, and more. This guide is informative and a must-read even after the first SHOP auction is over, because it also provides a glimpse of what’s next, especially for the next RFOX VALT quarters that we will open in the future.

The SHOP auction at the Callinova arts-themed quarter is just the first step of our journey of building the RFOX VALT metaverse together. We have more developments in store for you, including the following:
VFOX Farming will be finished
We’ll also announce the initial details of the first VFOX payments
The next SHOP auction, which will be held on RFOX VALT’s Gaming Quarter (yet to be named).
In addition, we’re launching the closed beta release for the RFOX VALT on PC and VR
In this closed beta, we allow VIPs to visit Callinova V1 in multiplayer mode
We’re debuting the launcher and updater features
We’re also letting you choose an avatar for your virtual character on the RFOX VALT from readyplayer.me
In addition, we’re launching voice and text chat systems
Updates on the SHOPs and Exhibitions are coming
The Music Quarter is next in line for SHOP auction
We’re launching the closed beta release (PC/VR/Mobile), allowing early adopters to visit Callinova V2 (final).
By this month, all systems should be in place for SHOP owners to modify their SHOPs as needed and either HODL and use or trade or sell.
By this month as well, the multiplayer system should be robust enough to cater to any number of visitors.
We have a jam-packed rest of the year ahead of us, and we’re happy to have you along the way. Just a small reminder: timelines may vary, but we’re aiming for these updates on these dates. We have more updates to come for sure.
Before we end this update, we want to let you know that we are in the process of creating avatars on the RFOX VALT metaverse very soon, through ReadyPlayer.Me, an online service that lets you have one avatar for many parts of the metaverse that you want to explore.
ReadyPlayer.Me, is already working with some of the important names in the metaverse space right now, including DUNE, VR CHAT, vSpatial, Sidequest, and more.
Soon, you’ll see me in avatar form, guiding you through RFOX VALT and even accepting questions from the community. I’m pretty excited for that, and he’s much better looking than me too.
Now that the first SHOPs are being sold in the Callinova quarter, we need to find our Quartermasters soon. Do you have what it takes? Read below and apply.
