Spheroid Universe (SPH)
Spheroid Universe (SU) is a platform that is meant for developing and launching projects in Augmented Reality (AR). According to the SU, their platform utilises Spheroid AR Cloud OS and Spheroid Script programming language. The vision behind the project is to connect the AR world with the real world for different use cases including gaming, education, entertainment, and advertising.
The Spheroid Universe is the world of planet Earth’s Extended Reality which is parceled out into plots called Spaces which are essentially ERC-721 non-fungible tokens (NFTs). These Spaces are not only digital assets but also intellectual property which means they are created, registered and protected in accordance with EU laws. The Spaces can be occupied by ads, images, references, or other content grouped into layers with the Space.
The ownership of a Space is permanent and owners have the right to resell, lease, gift or use them as collateral. Space owners also receive profits from ads.
The Spheroid ecosystem consists of Demiurge, which is a visually integrated development environment for programmers and designers. It makes it possible for collaborators to create digital worlds, populate and animate them. In the Space marketplace, users can buy and sell or trade Spaces on primary and secondary markets and also earn money on transactions. SPH tokens can be traded on Uniswap, 1inch, and LATOKEN.
VIBE is a blockchain-powered protocol for developers with a focus on the gaming and entertainment industries. The ecosystem is made up of VIBEHub which is a gaming and entertainment ecosystem that features a range of products including a virtual reality application. It’s claimed that users of VIBE should be able to play games, attend events or even go on virtual dates all in virtual reality on the VIBEHub application.
VIBEHub also has a strong focus on developing augmented reality elements, however, the VIBEHub app can also be accessed without a VR or AR device. Users should be able to access a less immersive version of the platform through their browser making it a more inclusive ecosystem.
VIBEHub is said to capture performances and streams using Volumetric videos. The technology, according to VIBE, allows them to capture a hologram image of a performer for instance, in a live setting and place that performance in their own custom VIBEHub VR environments creating unique immersive VR experiences. Apparently users can watch their holograms on the Feel The VIBE mobile app which is available on iOS and Android app stores. In addition, the VIBEHub Virtual World also has VR support.
VIBE is an Ethereum based cryptocurrency that powers VIBEHub. It’s required for accessing content, attending events such as concerts or going on virtual dates. VIBENet is the private chain that makes instant atomic micro-transactions with no gas fees possible. Users can use ETH, BNB, NEO, and GAS to play games in the VIBEHub gaming ecosystem. Exchanges that have VIBE trading include Binance and HitBTC.
