Sam Tucker Takes On Somnium Space

Sam Tucker is a comedian who makes YouTube videos about technology. His YouTube channel, called SAMTIME, has nearly 200,000 subscribers.

Today, Sam released his latest video, a rather funny look at the social VR platform Somnium Space, titled Virtual Real Estate! The Only House Millennials Can Afford!:

Even if you know nothing about Somnium Space, I still recommend you watch this video. Sam actually does a pretty good job of describing Somnium Space’s features, while gently poking fun at things such as that “Live Forever” feature which (let’s face it) is such an easy target to make fun of.

And I cackled with laughter at the wickedly clever insertion of an infamous clip from the Bitconnect blockchain-based Ponzi scheme promotional video, when Sam talks about “the security of blockchain” near the beginning of this video! Sam certainly knows his references, and that tiny little detail is something only a crypto geek would catch, and I loved it! So shady, Sam!


And if you are not familiar with the Bitconnect meme, here it is in all its glory:

Somnium Space may have been a sponsor of this video, but I’m not entirely sure that the company really knew what they were getting into with Sam Tucker! Still, it’s a very funny, well-done video, and any promotion is good promotion, right?

Sinespace Introduces a Referral Program

In an effort to promote their social VR/virtual world platform, Sinespace has unveiled a new user referral program.

The details are on this page. You will have to sign in using your username and password, and you will receive a unique referral link:

Here are the details of the referral program:

How to refer?
To refer a friend, copy the referral link above and share it via email, social media or message it to your friend.

1. Whenever your referred friend purchases gold, you get an extra 2% gold of the total amount e.g. if they buy 10000 Gold, you get 200 Gold.
2. If you refer 5 friends who become Premium members, you get your Premium membership free while they are subscribed!

Gold is one of the in-world currencies in Sinespace (the other is called Silver). So if you have family, friends and acquaintances whom you want to introduce to Sinespace, there’s no better time than now!

In fact, here’s my personal referral link, I’d be absolutely tickled pink if you decided to use it to join Sinespace! No pressure, though 😉

Sinespace has available desktop clients for Windows, Mac and Linux computers, as well as iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices. There’s even an experimental version of the Sinespace client that runs in your web browser!

Thanks to Wagner James Au of the blog New World Notes for the heads up!
