Unlike other metaverse solutions, we don’t have a proprietary platform that you build on.
With infinity metaverse, you build and own your entire metaverse experience, the same as a website.
You can move your solution to a different cloud provider or even run it on-premise, as long as your server is publicly accessible.
A lot of 3D solutions require massive downloads onto people’s machines, along with high powered gaming graphics cards and processors.
Could you imagine trying to store even just 10 metaverse experiences on your machine, let alone access to 1m+ worlds? Impossible.
The IM Network is a global scale streaming infrastructure, so your users don’t need powerful gaming machines.
Just like Netflix, the content is streamed over current internet bandwidth and speeds.
In order to deliver metaverse experiences using existing internet infrastructure, we needed to develop a new protocol that sits on top of the existing HTTP protocols of today’s internet.
The IMTP (infinity metaverse transport protocol) not only enables metaverse network communications, but it allowed us to fix a number of issues that we believe are incredibly important, such as age verification and user-based privacy requirements baked right in.
Because IM Network hosted metaverses share the same backbone so to speak, we were able to create metaverse portals, that enable people to jump from one world to another seamlessly.
Businesses and Brands need mechanisms to make it easier for customers to shop and engage, along with paying for goods and services.
For the most part, this is done today on existing website infrastructure that has payment flows and all the supporting mechanisms that customers have come to expect.
In order to lower the barrier to entry for the metaverse, we have also developed the first interop between web2.0 and web3.0 using the IMTP protocol, which means that uniquely, users can experience a full 3D metaverse worldspace, and when required, instantly transition to a web2.0 website.
This can make building e-commerce experiences much easier, as businesses can funnel customers from a metaverse worldspace directly to an existing web payment page for example.
There are several well-known metaverse platforms that are allowing businesses and brands to build experiences on their platform, such as Meta, Sandbox, Decentraland to name a few.
If you’re building your own end-to-end platform experience than you also fit into this category.
In order to provide an open experience for all, we will certainly allow .jump domains to redirect to those platforms, which not only gives the experience owner a mechanism to capture traffic, but also a way to provide meaningful search exposure in the orca search engine.
At the moment, this is handled by the .jump redirect, so a Web2.0 transition will be displayed, but in time we believe more efficient mechanisms will be created for some of these platforms to enable traffic redirection.
We will continue to work with any company or platform that is interested in integrating the IMTP protocol to provide even deeper integration for their experiences moving forward.
