Have to admit I did get a touch of nostalgia looking through their featured build page. Still not going to install some dodgy 'wallet' extension to take a closer look. Nice slow loading splash screen though.

LGBTQ Reigns

In August 2023, Somnium Space partnered up with Sansar VR, so that they could both be partners in failure.
Somnium Space, completely empty save a tiny community of about 5-10 people, with an overall monthly concurrency of 3 people, partners up with Sansar, with pretty much the same numbers, so that together they can become an even better failure together.
The owner of Somnium is an ego-driven braggart, so smug in himself he is completely deluded at the success of Somnium and since this attitude is matched with the unprofessional folks that took over Sansar, they should get along quite well together.
Each and every one of them gets to keep their jobs, while their investors, from startup banks like (the now collapsed)SVB, to corporate suckers like LGTV and Sanrio - takes their money and burns it on useless things - Sansar hasn't arguably improved its quality or user numbers in 5 years. In fact, every metric points to them losing users since they opened up to the public.
At Somnium they banned and cancelled and shadow-banned anyone with life in them, anyone who was remotely fun and vocal - (Altspace being notorious for this as well) and Sansar as well.
The idea is to share avatars and other things between Somnium and Sansar (when Sansar can't even get their own avatar right) but there is no idea how a Tilia-abandoned currency and a crypto wallet currency are going to marry..
