The Viarium virtual worlds Platform will bring together the best practices in the field of technologies of virtual reality and the blockchain.
The technology of virtual and augmented reality has long ceased to be considered a matter of distant future or something out of the domain of science fiction. “One day, we believe this kind of immersive, augmented reality will become a part of daily life for billions of people. Virtual reality was once the dream of science fiction. But the internet was also once a dream, and so were computers and smartphones. The future is coming and we have a chance to build it together,” said Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, already a year ago. His beliefs are not only expressed in words. Back in 2014, the world’s most popular social network acquired Oculus Rift, the developer of virtual reality, for a record-breaking of $2 billion.
According to Gartner, the research and consulting company that is regularly referenced by such IT market leaders such as IMB; solutions using the technologies of virtual and augmented reality will be used by every fifth large enterprise as early as 2019. This market is growing with such a vigour because the technology allows you to personalise and customise the products and services with great precision, closing the gap in the relationship between the company and the consumer and making it more profitable.
The technology of virtual reality also enables companies to save money on creation of showrooms and exhibition halls. Moreover, the number of potential visitors of virtual showrooms and exhibition halls is much larger than in the case of “bricks-and-mortar”, and embraces the whole world. This is why, such important producers and retailers as Ikea, Audi and Alibaba have already started having their own VR showrooms. The technology erases all borders, whether geographic or customs ones, and removes transboundary transfers.
However, the simple showroom models available through the Internet now are just the beginning. The Viarium project creates a next generation platform of virtual reality that will become not just a single virtual showroom but a whole world that would allow to open shops, create exhibition halls, build houses and even lease space to other members of the platform that could use it to open own virtual showroom in turn.
Viarium is a platform that can be used to create an infinite multitude of virtual worlds and can be used to promote goods and services of real-life sector companies. For instance, a construction company may use the platform to create a virtual equivalent of the future house, allowing potential buyers and dwellers to get familiarized with the layout of the rooms in advance, to appraise the view from the window and to design the future apartment when the construction of the house is not yet complete.
The creators of Viarium paid special attention to the data storage safety: to build their platform, they decided to use the blockchain technology. The decentralised register allows to avoid unauthorised change of the content, browse the posting history and to preserve the information in an encrypted form with the use of cryptography on multiple nodes.
All the transactions on the Viarium platform will be performed in its internal currency: the VRX tokens. The initial coin offering will be carried out within the usual framework of a crowdsale. The purchase of tokens will be advantageous not only for those who plan to use the platform to create their virtual showroom or lease virtual rooms and premises but also for investors.
Within the crowdsale, one token will be worth $0.06 but during the presale the customers will get between 5% to 30% discount. The presale of the tokens will continue until 1 July 2018 and then move into an open sale, which will finish on the 31 July of the same year.
The team of the project plans other products as well. It is not ready yet to discuss them in public but it can already announce an additional bonus for those who would buy the VRX tokens during the pre-ICO and ICO stages. All those who will buy the VRX tokens before the end dates of the crowd sale and will continue to hold the tokens 2 to 6 months after the end of the ICO, will be able to take part in an additional snapshot that provides its holders with an airdrop right to a new token that would allow its holders to become beneficiaries of the future developed product.
Unlike multiple projects that exist only in the stage of conception and plan to attract funds by selling tokens, the Viarium platform already has its basic architecture. The first world Genesis Land already exists, allowing to buy land plots and to create virtual showrooms. In other words, Viarium is a functioning business that has a functioning product.
