Luxury glamping, augmented reality (AR) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are all part of the experience offered by a new resort due to open near Edinburgh next spring. Mythtopia will feature 150 geometric domes and lodges, along with a restaurant, clubhouse, bar and spa, all built on the site of a former gold course near West Linton. Each guest will receive access to activities including a geofenced AR playground based on ancient Celtic mythology called Mythtopia Legends. The game allows players to explore the surrounding woodland while following a story of mythical creatures. Participants can build their own AR character, interact with talking trees and dwarves, and go on missions alongside the characters of their friends or family. The resort will also offer open water swimming in its own lake, along with stargazing, horse riding, yoga classes and silent disco parties. All NFT holders can stay at Mythtopia for up to three nights every year, and can take up to three other guests along with them. Alternatively, investors can stake their NFTs to earn a percentage of the booking revenue over their allocated nights. With the first mint date set for mid-October, other developments include customers being able to purchase a cryptocurrency token called OXEGEN (OXE), which is like a ‘digital carbon credit’, where the liquidity will come from the carbon credits of a planned 120,000 trees set to be planted. This carbon credit-based crypto currency is currently being developed, with hopes of launching the token in 2026, as the company has to plant, maintain and report its carbon sequestering over two years before being approved for the carbon credits to be issued. This would then form the liquidity of OXE, which will then recycle profits into seed funding of other eco projects, in turn growing the carbon credit pool and fuelling the token. Oliver Pyle-Santini, founder of Mythtopia, said: “We are aiming to create a Scottish getaway with a difference in this new digital landscape, as well as an amazing experience to help unite families, teenagers, and adults alike. “Something like this has never really been done before, and by blending together eco-tourism, gaming and the cryptosphere, we’re hoping to create a new era for travel and tourism. “We have been very careful to maintain the cultural heritage of the land the site sits on, by entwining Celtic stories into the experience for all ages to enjoy.” Mythtopia anticipates that first visitors will be welcomed on site in April 2024, with capacity continuing to expand into the summer, reaching full capacity of 150 dwellings in early 2025 – as well as having the Legends game operational in early 2025.
