With the ongoing health crisis and most of us trying to stay at home as much as possible to avoid any risk of infection, technology has been booming. And among them one trend that has already been well on its way: Virtual reality. The computer-generated virtual environment can usually be explored by users and lures our senses into experiencing it as if we were really there. The success of Immersive films and games like black mirror, ready player one and west world show that the interest in VR is huge.
And with technological advances, VR goggles and headsets could soon be highly available and cheap enough for mainstream consumers. However, so far most VR environments were mostly a replication of the already existing world or were used to train for certain scenarios that were difficult to train in real life – such as flying planes.
One blockchain company is looking to expand what VR can offer and help users overcome social exclusion and loneliness: Sensorium.
Sensorium is building a Social VR that allows users to immerse themselves in a virtual environment while having the opportunity to interact with others verbally, visually or both. Their overall mission is to achieve a breakthrough in the entertainment industry based on their Social VR technology.
To achieve that goal the team behind sensorium has created an ecosystem that contains a Digital Media platform that aggregates social VR content and other features allowing users to not only consume but also create content and monetize it.
The Sensorium platform is powered by the SENSO token. Initially, nearly 7,7 million tokens were issued at a price of 0.1 USD. SENSO is a ERC-20 token that can be used to pay for content, access on-demand services within the sensorium platform, transfer funds or value and to receive 20% discount when buying in comparison to paying with other currencies on the platform. The token also represents a share in the right of ownership of the brand which is provided via smart contract.
Recently, sensorium teamed up with a leading Ibiza EDM nightclub promoter: Yann Pissenem to create virtual night clubs. Considering how far we’re in most countries to get back into any nightclubs, this initiative could prove to be a great alternative to still connect with others.
The SENSO token will be featured on the Bitcoin.com Exchange on Friday, May 22nd 10:00.
