ARtoken - Decentralized AR/VR ecosystem for 3D content exchange
AR/VR will shake up markets to the tune of $80bn
Cappasity, being a well-trusted player in 3D digitizing and its applications for
augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), is announcing a crowdsale of ARToken (ART).
The ART crowdsale will signify the start of the Decentralized AR/VR Ecosystem that
enables easy AR/VR/3D content generation. The Ecosystem leverages blockchain
infrastructure to create, rent and sell AR/VR/3D content. This approach ensures
decentralized and trustless copyright storage, so people can enjoy borderless content
exchange within the AR/VR Ecosystem.
Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) promises to change the way we live, consume,
interact with digital environments and each other. The AR/VR market is forecasted to
become a multibillion dollar business in the next decade and to have sweeping
demand. Nevertheless, the lack of compelling AR/VR/3D content, its labour intensive
production and imperfect quality hinder the evolution of AR/VR industry and AR/VR
We believe the AR/VR revolution will be driven by content creators. For this reason,
we have committed to our ambition and experience to launching a content-oriented
AR/VR Ecosystem. The utility token, ARToken, will be used as a native digital currency
for content purchase and for active community member rewards through dedicated
Immediately after the token sale is finished, Cappasity will give crowdsale
participants an opportunity to pay for its already presented 3D modeling services
We believe the AR/VR revolution will be driven by content creators.
That’s why we are introducing the first platform that leverages
blockchain infrastructure to create, rent and sell 3D content. This
approach ensures decentralized and trustless copyright storage and
content exchange within the AR/VR ecosystem.
Based on the principles of decentralized economy, we are building an ecosystem full of AR/VR/3D content
In the Cappasity AR/VR ecosystem marketplace, content makers and content users from all over the world meet each other’s needs. To facilitate 3D content exchange, we are introducing a digital utility currency — the AR Token (ART). The ART decentralized billing system is capable of handling a large number of microtransactions and will be secured by well-designed smart contracts.
Pay with ARTs for
- Subscription to the 3D content base
- 3D content purchases at a seller’s price
- 3D content rentals for commercial purposes
Get ARTs for:
- Uploading unique 3D content
- Verification and moderation of the content
- Sale or rental of self-created 3D content
Before Cappasity, 3D content creation was time-consuming, complicated and not scalable. So, we created toolkits that make 3D digitizing of real objects available to everyone. Along with our thorough efforts to make embedding of 3D content to virtual galleries and websites easy, we also created tools for mobile and AR/VR apps. Our SDK is open to developers to build their own apps based on the platform.
For all ecosystem stakeholders, e.g. content creators, app developers, businesses and end users, we need to be sure that all copyrights are respected. For this reason, all transactions are immutably stored in the blockchain. To ensure a robust transaction flow, we chose an EOS platform capable of withstanding up to millions transaction per second.
Cappasity AR/VR Ecosystem Scheme
The Cappasity Ecosystem encompasses participants willing to sell or buy
AR/VR and 3D content. The ecosystem consists of supporting elements —
the marketplace, blockchain and storage infrastructure. The
decentralized storage infrastructure is provided by the independent
storage service providers. The sandbox area is used as a testing
environment for the AR/VR/3D content in practice. AR/VR developers and
active community contributors will be supported through dedicated ART
AR/VR will shake up markets to the tune of $80bn
AR has the full potential to be a major element of e-commerce and
m-commerce. Nevertheless, there are many other fields ready for AR/VR
disruption. Goldman Sachs expects the AR/VR software market to achieve
$35bn by 2025 with 60% of AR/VR software revenue driven by the consumer.
