Technological developments are fueling the new and exciting ways users can perceive and experience new realms of reality. From virtual exhibitions to Sci-Fi settings and extraordinary digital event spaces, many companies are unleashing their creative ambitions in a race to create the most outstanding and intriguing lure for their customers.
DecentWorld, a Swiss-owned metaverse platform, has decided to take an unorthodox approach by creating a 1-to-1 copy of the real world, enabling users to mint scarce NFTs in the form of Streets, and inviting users to experience the 3D virtual world of Downtown Dubai in a gamified and interactive way.
An Artistic Interpretation of Dubai
DecentWorld is on a quest to challenge how people view architecture and explore their surroundings while concentrating on the two most important sensations: familiarity and recognition.
“Our 3D rendering of Downtown Dubai was inspired by hundreds of images which were posted online. Each photograph, obtained via satellite as well as a number of other sources, was diligently researched and evaluated to represent the real world, but in an artful way. We want to create a platform which excites and plays with the users’ senses,” the design team reveals.
Overall, the 3D world consists of more than 50 buildings and other objects, which were artistically interpreted by the design team and made available for the users to explore. The team has already plans to adorn their 3D metaverse with other cities, such as Paris, New York, São Paulo, and many more.
Additionally, in order to provide users with a completely unique experience, the team is also giving an inspiring glimpse of how Dubai will look in the near future. When creating the virtual world, the design team also included buildings, which are still under construction in real life.
“Some of the structures in the metaverse won’t be completed in the real world until the end of 2023. In actuality, we are offering our consumers a chance to imagine how the city might look in the future. They will be able to claim to have seen it before it was even constructed,” the team says.
Inclusivity Is Key
When working with ambitious and young projects, such as the metaverse, companies must be very well aware of the users’ expectations and needs. DecentWorld has decided to take a bottom-up approach, focusing on the user’s experience and feedback instead of merely focusing on business goals. The team is planning to enrich and adjust each feature so that it brings unique and exciting value to each user.
“Our ultimate goal is to create a platform which would become a key tool for people to meet, interact, shop, and engage in various other activities. This is why we are serious about taking each user’s opinion into account,” the team explains.
The DecentWorld team purposefully chose to launch the platform on a desktop, allowing users to access the metaverse through their PCs. Nevertheless, the project owners also have plans to soon enable users to view the 3D environment through VR headsets.
“We wanted to be inclusive by allowing everyone to join our metaverse, even if they do not have a VR set at their disposal. We are aware that the metaverse is still a relatively novel idea, which means that the hardware still needs to catch up, but when it does, I am confident that it will become a real breakthrough in the technology sector,” Audrius, one of the project’s design team members, shares.
DecentWorld is a Swiss metaverse digital real estate platform built on blockchain technology to introduce a next-generation web3 experience. The platform allows members to mint and trade digital Street NFTs, which can then be combined into Collections. Completed and staked Collections have additional value as they generate yield that is paid out to the owner. Using state-of-the-art security features, DecentWorld also stands for trust and transparency in the blockchain industry.
