in virtualreality •  last year 


Nowadays one of the key problems preventing active development of VR technologies, is lack of high quality content for VR equipment.

Our team offers a solution that will attract thousands of developers and authors from all over the world to create and monetize high quality VR content — the VRT platform, which is a tool for creating VR content and a decentralized marketplace. The platform will be based on blockchain technology that guarantees transparent distribution of funds and enforcement of intellectual property rights. Moreover, we are working on creation of special SDK and API which will make it possible to significantly simplify the creation of VR content, and, as a result, to involve wide audience engaged in the development of the system.

Our team will actively promote our VR parks and partner other companies, what will allow to boost demand on VR content at our platform. In order to develop this branch we attract investors and franchisees, what enables us to scale up in geometric progression. Constant marketing support of the VR parks will create hype around them, and as result VR parks visitors will learn about the opportunities of the VRT platform and will be able to use its services.

A particular advantage for the VR content developers will be an opportunity to test and monetise games at offline sites in different countries — in our VR parks, the franchise network of which we actively develop. Another way to monetise projects will be the ability to find customers at the internal marketplace of the VRT ecosystem. Thanks to blockchain basis developers will have guarantees of the fully transparent automated distribution of money and intellectual property rights protection. Every time a piece of content is purchased, the smart contract will be automatically created in order to check the licence and/or to distribute royalties. The most perspective developers will get support of the special fund.
