Real-time MMO Metaverse powered by Village Protocol Social graph blockchain interface
Established in 2021
Teaser of the company
Digital Village (DV) is a recomposition of social media, gaming, and e-commerce. DV is the first real-time sustainable Multiplayer Metaverse connected to its Social Marketplace, which merges the physical and digital world with its social graph blockchain interface, Village Protocol, and allows real utility of digital assets.
Digital Village tested and validated the following blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:
The prototype product implemented brings clients closer to their communities and customers. Digital Village offers the Marketplace and the Metaverse. Customers are able to rent or buy land in one of our zones. At DV, we are collaborating with our clients to meet their needs, this is possible thanks to our 300 3D artists and designers, collaborating with us. Events hosted on DV could include fashion weeks, E-games, conferences and overall interactions.
The Village Protocol focuses on decentralizing data instead of monetizing user interactions. Village Protocol is an interface to show their blockchain data in a way consumers understand easily.
The market potential is increasing globally, as our clients and end-users. DV is soon enabling real-time audio chat within the Metaverse, combined with AR/VR functionalities. Furthermore, we are aiming towards launching Metaverse mobile access in the near future.
Technical development during Prototype stage
During the development of Digital Village, the following technical developments have taken place:
DV’s frontend development is connected to the implementation of our database and API system. Currently, within DV, we are setting up consistent team meetings every week – to check in, evaluate and set new goals. Thus far, we are on track with our timeline and in fact 5 month ahead, in terms of easy access to the Marketplace, and all relevant aspects of the website, visible for the public starting in Q2 2022.
With our current prototype we enable an easy sign-up process, easy client onboarding, seamless log-in from our Marketplace to the Metaverse, Product Creation, and viewing. We are blockchain agnostic and currently support Ethereum and Vechain.
The Metaverse, currently platform agnostic, combined with AI/AR/VR functionalities enables users to have utility to their digital assets in real-time, socialise via positional audio chat, create video and photo content directly from the Metaverse. Furthermore, we are aiming towards launching Metaverse mobile access in the near future.
Business development during Prototype stage
During the development of Digital Village, the following business developments have taken place:
We have not fully implemented our PR/Marketing strategy – we will have it running step by step whilst our beta version evolves and enables users to enter the Marketplace and finally, the Metaverse. The market potential is increasing globally and so do our clients and end-users.
We see the size of companies using our service could be anything from minor design studios to major/world leading organizations or brands.
2 is an ideal number of SMEs adopting DV to test the platform. This number is to enable DV and the SME to work closely together and take advantage of the experience to experiment and implement R&D for the DV products. The small number of SMEs would also enable DV and the SMEs to push the boundaries and innovation further, potentially discovering new solutions and improvements.
5 is the maximum number of SMEs for adopting DV. At this early stage of Web3, it is vital to educate the customers about the concept and opportunities of Web3, Blockchain, Metaverse, NFTs and so on. We believe in quality over quantity and would prefer to take our time with each SME to result in success stories, helping the SME, and turning them into long term clients of DV.
