Tokens․com Makes a Big Metaverse Move into SuperWorld4 min readReading Time: 3 minutes
PRESS RELEASE. The Web3 Investment firm has purchased 40 NFT plots of virtual real estate on the SuperWorld platform.
From companies like Apple and Facebook to brands like Puma and Gucci and beyond, suffice it to say the Metaverse is becoming the new frontier for commerce and community. And right now, many forward-looking investment firms and financial institutions are exploring the myriad opportunities offered by Web 3 and the incipient Metaverse.
SuperWorld is a virtual world in augmented reality (AR), similar to Decentraland or Cryptovoxels, both user-owned virtual worlds who are, like SuperWorld, built on the Ethereum blockchain. However, one critical difference between the SuperWorld platform and other virtual worlds, is that SuperWorld has created a virtual world by digitally mapping the whole surface of Planet Earth, with each individual plot of virtual real estate represented as an NFT, and measuring 100m x 100m of real world space.
And recently, Metaverse Group, a subsidiary of Tokens.com, has put down stakes in SuperWorld to the tune of 40 plots of NFT land with more to come, including virtual real estate encompassing Central Park Zoo, the Eden Fine Art Gallery in Manhattan, the Pelican Hotel in Miami Beach, and the Louis Vuitton store in Las Vegas, just to name a few.
And right now, Tokens.com is the only publicly-traded company that has extensive exposure to Metaverse real estate with paying tenants. Its virtual real estate generates revenue through digital advertising and from retailers setting up virtual storefronts.
“Holding landmark locations is essential to Metaverse Group’s growth strategy,” commented Andrew Kiguel, Tokens.com CEO and Executive Chair of Metaverse Group. “Buying landmark properties increases Metaverse Group’s advertising potential in SuperWorld. As the landmarks themselves will attract foot traffic and maximize our advertising opportunities.”
In SuperWorld, an infinite number of unique digital “layers” also 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.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Metaverse Group and their world-class portfolio to the SuperWorld platform,” says SuperWorld Co-Founder & CEO Hrish Lotlikar. “With the purchase of virtual real estate encompassing these 40 landmark locations on our platform, Metaverse Group puts itself at the vanguard of the virtual real estate space, and will serve as a catalyst for bringing more brands, organizations and individuals into the Metaverse.”
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!
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.
With its purchase of 40 plots of virtual real estate on the SuperWorld platform, Tokens.com and Metaverse Group are laying the foundation for a decentralized future, and showing the world that digital assets are indeed the real deal
SuperWorld is a virtual world in augmented reality (AR), digitally mapped over the surface of the Earth. Plots of SuperWorld land are represented as non-fungible tokens (NFT) corresponding to real world space. Any user in SuperWorld can explore and create AR content, engage in a virtual real estate marketplace, or buy and sell NFTs in the SuperWorld NFT Salon.
