In an immersive future like “The Oasis,” trust in identity, payments and freedom of expression will be cornerstones of any successful immersive experience. Blockchain technology will build that trust; a revolution enabling crowdsourced creation and sale in the new virtual economy. Is crowdsourcing the future of AR/VR? Will immersive applications be the ultimate blockchain application?
A panel of experts including representatives from:
- a VR platform powered by blockchain
- an award-winning AR company that combines object-sensing software with an advanced smart projector and camera system
- a VR content distribution company with a platform that leverages blockchain to quickly and securely deliver and sell VR assets
..will discuss the immersive economy giving rise to “The Oasis."
