SuperWorld: At The Nexus of NFTs, Virtual Real Estate & Augmented Reality

SuperWorld: At The Nexus of NFTs, Virtual Real Estate & Augmented Reality

,

SuperWorld is the virtual world in augmented reality (AR). What does that mean? Let’s start with the “virtual world.” You’ve perhaps heard of Decentraland or Cryptovoxels, both user-owned virtual worlds who are, like SuperWorld, built on the Ethereum blockchain.

One critical difference between the SuperWorld platform and other virtual worlds, is that SuperWorld has created a virtual world by digitally mapping the surface of Planet Earth, which was then divided into 64. 8 billion individual plots of land, each measuring 100m x 100m of real world space.

And while we all share the Earth here in “real life,” in SuperWorld, an infinite number of unique digital “layers” means anyone can personalize and curate any location on the planet with art / music / video / 3D / animation / design / text and more through AR.

Through a mobile device or headset, every user in SuperWorld can view, create and place persistent AR in geo-pinned locations across the globe that can be shared with followers:

A SuperWorld To Call Your Own

While artists and AR enthusiasts (and YOU) are free to place creative, educational or entertaining projects anywhere on Earth in augmented reality, the SuperWorld Virtual Real Estate Platform lets owners of virtual real estate play a global version of Monopoly in the real world.

As you recall, the SuperWorld platform takes the form of 64.8 billion plots of land, each corresponding to real world space. Every plot of virtual real estate in SuperWorld is also an NFT, and represented by the ERC-721 standard of tradable assets. So, virtual landowners can choose to acquire land from historical landmarks like the Great Wall, to natural wonders like the Great Lakes, along with other iconic or personally meaningful locations.

Any user in SuperWorld — from content viewers and collectors to developers and marketers — can buy and sell virtual real estate on the platform, with every plot of unowned property starting at 0.1 ETH. However, some users on the platform are already listing their land at much higher asking prices. The plot of land encompassing The Statue of Liberty, for example, is up for grabs at 99 ETH!

In addition to buying and selling virtual real estate, landowners in SuperWorld have opportunities to monetize future user activity that occurs on their land (through e-commerce, data, advertising, analytics, etc.), as NFTs are programmable digital assets that can activate DeFi protocols from any economics taking place on a particular plot of land.

A SuperWorld For All Of Us

Keep in mind that you don’t have to purchase a plot of land to place AR in its location. The “infinite” AR layers mentioned earlier means that if somebody owns the Statue of Liberty, for example, you (and everyone else) are free to place AR content in that location free of charge. So if the owner of the Statue of Liberty in SuperWorld doesn’t like that you’ve given Lady Liberty the face of Darth Vader on their property, they can choose not to follow your account.

Think of it working a bit like social media: Whether or not you’re the owner of the land, you’ll only see AR in locations that you choose to see, and from the people who you choose to follow. As every individual user has his/her/their own world to curate and personalize, we can all share one world with endless permutations in the digital realm.

SuperWorld has received support from some of the most innovative and brilliant minds and organizations in immersive tech, blockchain, DeFi and digital assets. The SuperWorld advisory board includes Stephen Wolfram (creator of Mathematica and Wolfram Alpha), Bob Metcalfe (Inventor of Ethernet & Metcalfe’s Law), Robert Scoble (author, futurist), and Nitin Gaur (Head of Digital Assets at IBM), among others.

Notable investors include: Draper Goren Holm, Outlier Ventures, SOSV, Capital Factory and Altered Ventures, to name a few.

For some, crossing the digital and physical divide can seem like a leap of faith. But today, SuperWorld has built a bridge over which migration into immersive AR puts users at the leading edge of creativity — and offers a groundbreaking new way to monetize and conduct blockchain commerce on a decentralized platform. As such, creative artists, entrepreneurs, educators, organizations — anyone — has the opportunity to build a better world in SuperWorld.
