VIRTUAL UNIVERSE

This is an epic, story-driven open world game in the Living VR powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and block chain technologies which enable the users to connect with their friends and embark on emotionally engaging grand adventures in a living world.

PROS:

  • The platform enables the players to explore the vast universe discovering places, meeting new people  and hence enjoying their exciting experiences
  • The users within the platform are able to choose between many unique  and compelling adventures to experience it solely or with their friends  building their interests
  • The platform enables the individual players to get rewards upon creating their own experiences  and items for the other players to discover and enjoy
  • The players on the platform are entitled to unique assets in the game which they can customize  as per their wish enabling them to enjoy their life of adventure or creation of beneficial projects
  • The platform is founded by well qualified personnel with many years of experience as the founder Jeroen Van de Bosch has created many award winning products in the online gaming industry.
  • The platform website and white paper are written in different languages which enables a variety of users from different countries to understand the project implications

CONS:

  • The platform VU token is not exchangeable with  any other crypto currency outside the game
  • The token use is restricted in some areas hence limiting the token use
  • The platform lacks a well generated mobile application to enable the users in remote areas access the platform game via their smart phones

SUGGESTIONS:

  • the platform VU token should be made exchangeable with major crypto currencies and fiat
  • the platform developers should develop a mobile application supported by Android to enable the remote users access the project via their smart phones

NOTE:

The platform leverages multiple technologies enabling it to create an entirely new entertainment experience that helps in driving the future of virtual creation, social and gaming making the project vital and I would highly invest in it.

Virtual reality has seemingly limitless possibilities, this is certainly true when combining the described features of their project into one application. It's machine learning, artificial intelligence and augmented reality all wrapped up into a virtual adventure supported by blockchain technology. Current products out on the market lack the appeal that VU is trying to leverage. We can only hope that their product can sustain the hype with an intuitive and functional game that immerses you into a reality similar to the plot of HBO's Westworld.

The game mechanics will promote excellent use of the token by creating a marketplace for virtual land and goods, this could see well for the future token price. This virtual reality project is still in it's infancy so there will likely be little to no short term profit from this ICO, staying in it for the long haul is your best bet, that is only if you truly believe in the technology and the team behind it. Because as far as we know, the only reasonable development over the last 5 years is a Grand Canyon VR prototype.

Differentiation:  The platform differentiates itself from competitors by aiming to introduce artificial intelligence (AI) to create dynamic environments based off of biometric data that is collected from the user in real-time. Additionally, the platform will emphasize story-telling. The team wishes to build a product that allows the user to participate in world-building (akin to Minecraft) with the use of “co-creation”, a “set of creative mechanics that will allow users to create, customize, and optimize their experience inside the game.”

Market Penetration Potential: The VR market is far from developed. An application of VR that has massive widespread appeal has yet to be seen. As a result, the likelihood of gaining significant share of the market is considerable.

Solution Advantage: The two largest advantages of the platform compared to other VR ecosystems that utilize cryptocurrency is the ability to have dynamic environments via AI and biometric sensors as well as the co-creation aspect of the platform which allows users to “create, customize and optimize their experience in the game”. Additionally, VU further differentiates itself from other similar projects by emphasizing storytelling elements via MicroStorie.

Long-Term Vision: The whitepaper presents virtual-reality as a true paradigm shift in user-experience as opposed to leveraging it as a means for investment funding.
