OASIS DIGITAL STUDIOS APPOINTED EXCLUSIVE AGENCY FOR NEW METAVERSE AFTERMATH ISLANDS
Oasis Digital Studios
Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of
Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc.,
has signed an agreement to be the exclusive agency for virtual land and items, NFTs (non-fungible tokens), business development, and promotion for a new, in-development metaverse,
Aftermath Islands, which will provide on-line users with theme-based, first-person, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences, quests, games and integrated e-commerce activities, creating a virtual world supported by users and brands.
Oasis will receive up to 30 per cent of the revenue from all sales, including primary virtual land (VL) and items, a portion of land and item resales, property management fees, together with a significant grant of VL and exercisable equity in the platform. The Liquid Avatar mobile app is also slated to play a role to support digital credentials required to manage
metaverse accounts and asset verification.
Aftermath Islands, a thematic virtual world consisting of genre-specific islands, communities and estates, users can buy, develop, trade and sell VL, other property and assets such as buildings, crafted items, transport, and others -- all through NFTs, non-fungible tokens that represent the ownership of virtual and other assets. Each plot or parcel of VL is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their VL. This can range from simple scenery and structures to an interactive game, store, warehouse, dwelling, facility or destination. Users can purchase VL as well as all other goods and services in
with credits, the current code name for in-game currency, fiat and other authorized currencies, digital coins, and tokens.
Initially, VL will be available as NFTs, convertible into property when the metaverse launches, which is expected mid-2022. Limited VL will be available in virtual single lots measuring approximately 1,000 square metres, allowing for a dwelling, game or business, where applicable, to operate on the property. A selection of multiple lots and larger parcels will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The first five theme-based islands, five community islands, 10 estate islands and other items are expected to become available for sale later this month, October, 2021, according to
Aftermath Islands, with up to 7,500 parcels of virtual land NFTs with a potential retail value of up to $1.4-million (U.S.) available in phase 1. Additional phases are being developed that will include new and exciting themes, communities and estates.
Aftermath Islands, with the support of Oasis, is exploring brand partnerships that will allow consumer, entertainment, sports and commercial organizations to build and manage their own
experiences inside the Aftermath Islands metaverse and co-operative programs with other metaverses that will allow interoperability across platforms.
players will also have access to create a Liquid Avatar account allowing them to manage their digital identity and certain crossover assets and activities connecting their in-game activities to their real-world activities and engagement. Potential opportunities include managing avatars, items, integrated augmented reality (AR) events and programs, and purchasing conventional items like sneakers or trainers through KABN Kash and receiving exclusive bonuses, like a matching digital pair for use in
"Metaverses are potentially poised to be the next breakthrough in on-line entertainment, e-commerce, virtualization and virtual asset ownership. Major companies like Facebook, Epic and others are staking their claims to this evolution and its dynamic growth opportunity. We believe that Oasis's exclusive agreement and potential equity partnership with
Aftermath Islands provides the opportunity for our organization to get in early on this new and exciting area of on-line growth, digital asset development and credential management,"
said David Lucatch, managing director of Oasis Digital Studios and chief executive officer of Liquid Avatar Technologies.
"Metaverse applications have the ability to integrate real and virtual worlds together, creating more opportunities for avatars and digital identity to exist cross-verse and opening up new and innovative growth and revenue programs for Oasis, the Liquid Avatar mobile app and Liquid Avatar Technologies."
advises that, in the coming months, updated white papers and technical reviews, the initial governing counsel, additional themes, new communities, and estates will open, allowing players to own virtual land across a wide range of islands. For commercial, entertainment, financial, game, product and other brands, select island environments will allow commercial operations and ownership, allowing for enterprises to create economic opportunities.
About Aftermath Islands
Aftermath Islands, as first described in the initial white paper published in 2017 and then subsequently updated, was based on the premise of a water world with islands that represented destinations in a global virtual game. Since then, the Aftermath Islands metaverse has evolved and now represents exciting theme-based islands, communities and estates where players can experience a wide range of adventures and opportunities.
In Aftermath Islands' virtual world, users can buy, develop, trade and sell virtual land (VL), property and assets, like buildings, crafted items, transport and other items, all through NFTs, non-fungible tokens that represent the ownership of virtual and other assets. Each plot or parcel of VL is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their VL. This can range from simple scenery and structures to an interactive game, store, warehouse, dwelling, facility or destination. Users can purchase VL as well as all other goods and services in Aftermath Islands with credits, the current code name for in-game currency, fiat and other authorized currencies, coins and tokens.
Aftermath Islands is a shared virtual world, much like the metaverse described by author Ernest Cline in his science fiction novels
Ready Player One and Ready Player Two. Expected to launch mid-2022, Aftermath Islands will allow users to connect and interact with each other, create content, craft, participate in activities and quests, and play games. Aftermath Islands will have a virtual economy where users can engage in a myriad of in-world economic transactions as well as monetize the content, items, quests and applications they build.
