ViMarket.io: Connecting the Virtual Universe and ViR Token
VR marketplace ViMarket has announced its plans for its new ‘Virse,’ upcoming token sale and Flight Deck VR at CES.
ViMarket Inc has announced its plans for its new “Virse” ™, upcoming token sale and Flight Dek VR at CES. The upcoming token sale of its native cryptocurrency, the ViR (Pronounced Vee-R) or Virtual content Token. This cryptocurrency gives users of the new immersive social gaming and E-Commerce platform, access to experience and participate in a virtual universe of digital content.
Recent video game phenomenon “Fortnite” exemplifies the consumer appetite for virtual goods, with players purchasing over $300M USD per month of various items for their characters including virtual clothes, weapons and even dance moves (called “emotes”). This represents just one of the successful MMO (massively multiplayer online) games out there and this sector represents a hundred billion dollar market alone.
Virse allows its users, known as citizens, to utilize ViWallet, its cryptocurrency wallet, to purchase and store its digital currency ViR, which is used within the platform for the purchase of virtual items and assets.
Kant Jain, the former CEO of Virse’s predecessor, ViMarket, stated:
“There are numerous reasons that building a blockchain and cryptocurrency based content marketplace is advantageous; cryptocurrency tokens are indestructible and offer the flexibility of allowing our citizens to participate in a real economy, compliant with the prevailing regulations in their jurisdiction.”
Unlike traditional in-game tokens, which cannot be transferred between users or earned and redeemed for real-life (RL) wealth, Virse allows its users to benefit economically from using, consuming, and even creating on the platform. Citizens of the virtual universe can also utilize the ViMarket exchange which allows them to exchange the native tokens of a growing list of independent crypto-powered virtual worlds thereby facilitating the ability to seamlessly travel between their favorite ecosystems.
More details will be released throughout the token sale, the private pre-sale of which commenced in October, and culminates in the public token sale, aptly named “The Big Bang,” early next year.
