Depending on who you ask, “Web 3.0” is either the internet’s blockchain-powered future or a meaningless buzzword applied to cryptocurrency scams, NFT y Metaverse.
Therefore, many are wary of the recently announced Polium Onewhich some doubt will ever exist
However, the developer of Wasteland 3inXile Entertainment, at least managed to have fun at the expense of Polium One.
The present day, inXile Entertainment tweeted its “new logo,” a purple cube with the company name inexpertly slapped on the side.
This is a direct parody of the logo of Polium which many feel is a shameless scam of GameCube.
The parody logo is a purple cube with the “inX” part of the company name carved into it and the “ile” that looks like someone drew it on the side with the paint brush tool. MS Paint. “Thinking about changing to a new logo,” reads inXile’s tweet, “(sort of ran out of space).”
Unfortunately, not everyone got the joke, and other users had to explain the context in replies to the Tweet. Still, anyone privy to the Polium One announcement will probably pick up on the joke reasonably quickly.

For anyone who missed this news, the tech startup Polium announced the Polium One July 4.
However, the first console NFT of the world almost immediately received criticism for its logo. The emblem resembles a gray and white cube with a stylized black “P” cut out so that the letter has a smaller cube inside.
This is remarkably similar to the GameCube logo, which does the same thing but with a purple cube and the letter “G”.
Polium denies having copied the logo of GameCube of Nintendoarguing that many companies use similar designs.
Although the logo GameCube comes from the name and shape of the popular game console Nintendo, Polium claims that its cube represents blockchain technology. Still, the similarities are striking.
The company also didn’t fight much to defend its design, quickly switching to a self-styled “original” logo. However, Polium’s admission of the old emblem’s lack of originality did not go unnoticed by the console’s detractors.
