What is the EndiVerse?
I recently announced the vision of the EndiVerse Platform. Like many ideas, the message can get muddied with catch phrases, rhetoric, and just information overload. It’s a BIG IDEA, there is a lot to it. It takes time to communicate a message like this. It has to be repeated, re-phrased and shown in various lights to start getting attention and growing a community.
The MetaVerse won’t be built by one company or individual, but it will be the cumulative work of hundreds of Creators, Animators, Entrepreneurs, Developers and Artists coming together to help build the metaverse ecosystem.
The EndiVerse DAO will help drive innovation and collective ownership of a community built metaverse. It is in the early stages of taking shape.
It’s a group of like-minded individuals who can be part of this by contributing either thier skills, time or financial resources and build and own something together.
The project is currently being led/championed by Gavin Stevens, the “original founder” of BitPhone.net — A Global Bitcoin Internet Payphone. — Since closed, but done with Integrity.
In a nutshell, the EndiVerse is an ecosystem to power the creation of meta-spaces. Today, consumers need to learn a lot of new technologies and skills or pay $1000s of dollars to consultants or companies to build their own custom Metaverses.
The EndiVerse will allow users to easily create a new metaverse from a template and customize it. It provides a set of templates, tools and the framework to host and access these meta-spaces.
Creators/Resellers can make money by creating EndiVerse compatible Meta-Space templates and reselling them to others to create custom Meta-Spaces.
It’s a bit more than just Meta-Space tools. It’s just tools in general, things to make the metaverse more accessible for the masses!
The MetaVerse isn’t “one place” just like the internet isn’t “one website” The Internet describes billions of interconnected websites. The MetaVerse is a term that describes billions of interconnected “Meta-Spaces”. Just like the websites, these meta-spaces need to be created, customized and maintained and hosted somewhere by someone.
So, where will Meta-Spaces live? Is it Decentralized? Most meta-spaces consist of a customized 3D model and various data files that gets stored on a web server somewhere. Data / image files can be stored on IPFS, but not all data should be decentralized.
Whats more important is that the protocols to manage digital assets (NFTs) and the technologies used to access these experiences (VR headsets, AR glasses or mobile phones) remain open and accessible to all! We don’t want things like ApplePlay! We want things like BlueTooth! open, and usable by all!
It’s already started. The first Meta-Space doesn’t exist yet, but it will soon. I’m conceptualizing doing some NFT Art Galleries as one of the first EndiVerse use cases. Imagine this use case:
Any NFT Project can create a new Meta-Space with the EndiVerse Platform. To create a new space, just pick a template, pick a name, and enter your NFT contract or OpenSea NFT Collection address and the tooling will generate a meta-space for your NFTs. Imagine a VR meta-space, where fans can browse or buy pieces from your NFT collection in your own private space!
You can buy a 3D template today for Unity, then spend 10–20 hours customizing it. The EndiVerse will streamline the customization / hosting process.
According to web stats “As of Jan 14, 2022, there are currently over 1.92 billion websites online.”
Jeez, that’s A LOT of websites. If a Meta-Space is anything like a website (it’s pretty close really, just add some tech) and it only grows to 1/10th of the size, that means there will be 192 Million meta-spaces in just a few years.
Someone needs to help build templates, create content, provide hosting, onboard new customers, maintain there spaces, etc..
It feels like it’s 1995 all over again. Do you want to get into building websites? I would if I were you, there is a lot of opportunity there.
The technology that makes the metaverse what it is ( VR / AR / XR ) is already here. It’s still really early, but the base technologies have a solid foundation.
3D objects created for 3D printing are starting to find thier way into meta-spaces. 3D characters are getting animated with Maya, blender, Unity and Unreal.
Apple is about to release it’s own VR headset. This alone will bring millions more people into the metaverse.
I wish this was all built already! but then again, do I?
If it existed already, I wouldn’t have the pleasure or opportunity to try and build it, or to try and convince others like you to help build it! Honestly, I don’t have to convince anyone, the technology itself will do that.
I just want YOU to help US, build it TOGETHER! Join the EndiVerse DAO!
Who’s building the MetaVerse?
There are going to be a bunch of companies building closed ecosystems around this technology, think Facebook, Apple, Google, etc…
If you ask me, I don’t want to live in a metaverse powered by big tech!
I want to live in a metaverse powered by the community! An open metaverse where I can take my digital stuff (NFTs) from place to place.
I need your help!
I don’t have millions of dollars to spend hiring Engineers like Meta is doing. I can’t possibly compete with Meta, Apple, Sandbox, Decentraland, they are growing fast and already have tons of money.
Whats with the name?
MetaVerse.com was taken… So was Universe.com, Multiverse.com, Meta.com, etc.. Gotta get something Verse… In the End.. well ya know..
EndiVerse.com — An Endless Universe of Meta-Spaces
It’s better than those others don’t you think ? It’s like Universe, but not…
DAO’s are like little democracies. They form in a decentralized manner with people contributing thier money, time and knowledge to a shared cause.
Communities are incredibly powerful. People, just like you and I, working together on a shared vision. Shared ownership, shared knowledge, shared governance and common goals. Let’s build this thing together! It’s just the beginning!
The DAO is being led by the founders team.
