Today's news is that OVR, a mobile application connected to the world of blockchain and NFT, is heading towards a new front, that of augmented reality chats.
In fact, the new update of the application, available for both iOS and Android, promises a face-to-face AR chat or the possibility of talking with friends within the application using avatars and interacting with them.
OVR, the first augmented reality application
This is the first application to allow such a feature, especially if we think about the crypto sector and the implications of OVR in the blockchain world.
Therefore, OVR is moving towards a new inclusion direction and further customization of avatars also thanks to 10 new characters and ethnicities that can be used in the application.
In addition, with this new update of the application, you will be able to receive notifications of the chats with your friends and avatars that you meet in the OVR metaverse and also the possibility of sharing the links of your LANDs.
Before this update, in fact, it was not possible to share a simple URL from your LAND to invite you to enter your metaverse. Now, however, each of the 1.6 trillion hexagons into which OVR's virtual world is divided has its own link to share. In each LAND it is possible to organize all kinds of experiences, from concerts to virtual NFT exhibitions and more.
In short, great news for this app that has also recently partnered with Chainlink and has sold over 300,000 LANDs at auction, including the Eiffel Tower, which sold a few months ago for $ 100,000.
OVR also has its own namesake token that can be purchased directly with a credit card on the company's website.
Metaverses and the NFT world
According to data shared by Reuters about the world of NFTs this year, the market for metaverses is growing with more than 37,000 NFTs sold in this category in the first six months of 2021.
More generally, the NFT market it's a $ 2.5 billion industry in 2021, while in 2020 there was talk of "only" $ 13 million.
