What are the main principles of the Metaverse, huh? It might be best to define the Metaverse itself, first.

So, what is the Metaverse? It’s an advanced, spatial computing platform that runs on blockchain technology and renders digital experiences as a mirrored extension of the real world.

It will be a secure, liberating space to roam and create. From buying and selling virtual property, to upskilling with AI learning machines.

Do you know the differences between AI and VI?

From finding new ways to connect with people worldwide, to setting up shop to offer immersive retail experiences… There’s a whole lotta’ potential here.

Awesome, right? Because in the Metaverse, you can be who you want, create what you want, and how you want.

You can become the person you’ve always wanted to be. Uncover talents you never knew you had. Have experiences you never thought you’d get.

You hold the power and choose your own adventures. You discover your own mind-blowing new experiences.

The question is, how?

These nine principles fuse together to spur the Metaverse and its growth.

1. INTEROPERABLE

Full transferability of data and digital assets.

A seamless exchange and use of information across a growing network of virtual lands and experiences.

The term refers to the facilitation of connection across a whole host of domains, software, products and machines.

The end goal? Users will be able to buy, earn, or win a digital asset in one environment and then use it in another.

Users will be able to take out the assets they create inside one platform, and bring what’s valuable to them to another platform. These transitions will occur without the barriers that a closed-wall system has.

2. DECENTRALIZED

Distributed ownership across interconnected spaces.

A shift of control away from centralized authorities. Many view this proposed framework as the only way to run the Metaverse.

How does that work, you ask? By implementing DAO systems. This means that a single supreme corporation won’t run the Exarta Metaverse. Who will, then, you ask? All of us – together.

Exarta will award its users with voting rights and control over the project’s direction. That’s because smart contracts dictate the rules of a DAO. They also make decisions on how Metaverse governance unfolds. And the two combined will lead to a truly rewarding, fulfilling, community-driven experience.

3. CO-CREATED & USER-DEFINED

Built-in collaboration with users to enable them to generate assets, content, and value.

DAOs allow independent users, developers, and businesses to construct the Metaverse. This is so it can function as a mirrored extension of the physical world. And put plainly: if users generate content on our current Web 2.0, Web 3.0 users will develop the platform, create its content, and reap the benefits.

We’ll all experience full self-sovereignty. The Metaverse will allow us what we like to call the ‘5 P’ identity: personal, private, persistent, portable, and protected. And when everyone can control their identity? An online community where inspired creators can collaborate will thrive.

4. PERSISTENT

Always on, always there, and constantly evolving.

For society to shift in a meaningful way into virtual spaces, what we do in the Metaverse must endure. It must continue to exist and develop; even when nobody interacts with them.

The Metaverse comprises computer-generated 3D environments and avatars that can interact in real-time. Real-time rendering enables a virtual world to be “alive” and respond to any given input from a user. It will be a reality available in real-time for all, regardless of location. And, like the real world, a persistent Metaverse will keep moving, even when you leave it.

It will create infinite opportunities for content creators to decorate the space they’re creating in. And they can contribute at any time, from anywhere. Sounds good to us!

5. SYNCHRONOUS

Everyone has the same experience of the Metaverse, in real-time.

The hope is that the Metaverse will one day be woven into everyday life so that shared experiences can persistently exist for everyone.

As an inclusive, 3D virtual space, the Metaverse eliminates all types of barriers (physical, social, or otherwise). It’s an endless ecosystem. It welcomes everyone. And there’s no limit to the number of users that can enter at the same time, from anywhere in the world.

A retail brand can welcome as many shoppers through their virtual doors as they wish. Virtual concerts can have hundreds of thousands of attendees.  The more the merrier – we say. The Metaverse’s capacity for inclusivity is what makes it far more accessible than any current Web2 platform.

6. SCALABLE

Made up of a massively scaled number of virtual worlds.

The Metaverse will be able to support unlimited users throughout many VR spaces. It will one day have infinite, ever-growing, evergreen virtual worlds. Millions of digital avatars will be able to coexist at the same time. The virtual environments will be accessible across a whole array of devices.

So it’s all about giving as many people as much access as possible. People can also follow the top Metaverse trends of 2023.

7. IMMERSIVE

Interactive, 3D objects that once seemed implausible will come to life.

The most important of the Metaverse principles when it comes to experience. That’s because in the Metaverse, experiences will “feel” different from what we can see on a 2D screen.

Spatial computing will mirror the physics of visual detail with digital twins. That way, we can engage with virtual elements as if we were in the real world.

How? Well, firstly, it’ll convert movements, speech, and gestures into digital interactions. This is in line with the hope that one day, we’ll interact in virtual environments as if we were in the real world.

Think about the lighting, shadows, and reflections we can see. The roughness of a ragged wall when we brush our hands across it. How loud or quiet an ambulance siren depends on its proximity to us, and how quickly it’s moving.

Spatial data will add context to objects, spaces, and users in our physical and virtual worlds, to make them more intelligent. It’ll assist real-time interactions to provide an intuitive experience for humans and machines. It’ll also help us all to navigate the Metaverse, which is to be a parallel plane of existence where we can live, coexist and socialize.

Believe it or not, full social immersion is closer to us than you think.

WRAPPING UP

So, have we got your head around the fact a whole variety of principles combine to create the magic of the Metaverse? We’ll be honest – we’ve only scratched the surface here.

The Metaverse is constantly growing and evolving. It’s a joint project. It’s for us all to get our heads around and stick our hands into. There’s something new to learn every day. It’s the future. It will be epic. And Exarta is already making its mark at the very beginning of this already-immense journey. The question is: are you coming with us?
