A resolution between 4K Ultra HD and 8K HDR, TouchID, a ray tracing system, up to 120 frames per second and a design that has made many think of the Nintendo GameCube: these are the promises that revolve around the next console that seeks to revolutionize the world of web 3.0.
This is a project announced by the company Polium that seeks to manufacture a console that will allow users to play video games where they can exchange cryptocurrencies and NFTs, as well as make purchases with different tokens. It is called Polium One and from the manufacturing company, they assure that it will be released on the market in 2025.
However, there are many doubts about the ambitious console designed for the world of blockchain; Well, not only is there no prototype of the device so far (only a 3D render of the product, but several of its specifications seem too good to be true, such as the promise of using a Touch ID authentication system: a technology that is owned by Apple and not usually shared with any company.

What is known (and what is not) about Polium
Little information is known about the company that has made the announcement. Until now, for example, its origin is unknown. However, there are details that draw attention (and not exactly for the better), such as the fact that on the blogging platform, Medium, Polium has only seven followers; and that on Twitter they only have 2,048.
But there are more doubts about the console that promises to “revolutionize” the world of NFTs, because despite the fact that there is not yet a single first console built, the manufacturers are offering those interested in cryptocurrencies to separate the device by buying it in pre-sale . This point becomes more suspicious when you consider that said console “will be built by the community,” according to Polium.
The first model of Polium One that will be available to investors, intends to come out in 2024. However, the games it will have are also unknown. According to the company’s website, there is no confirmed title yet, as they are allegedly in talks with some developers, which, of course, are not mentioned.
in front of the critics Having received the announcement, the company claims to have a track record in hardware and software design and that they hope to have a first functional prototype ready in November 2022.
