VOXELS - VOX
“Official Coin of Virtual Reality” - Halsey Minorhttp://www.voxelus.com/VOXELUS & VOXELS
"Voxelus" is the name of the VR Platform which allows anyone regardless of skill level — to create VR (Virtual Reality) video games, experiences and virtual spaces without writing code. It consists of "Voxelus Creator" (Available Here
) a 3D design app for PC and Mac (open source building software), and the viewer known as the "Voxelus Viewer" (Available Here
), which works on desktop PCs, Oculus Rift and Samsung VR headset devices. The Voxelus ecosystem, uses an in-game cryptocurrency known as "Voxels" (VOX). Voxels is the official currency of VR and the only form of money used inside the Voxelus Platform. Voxels will power the Voxelus ecosystem and will be used for the purchase and sale of all content, services and awards. Voxelus plans to offer a revenue share with creators as the VR game industry is estimated to be a 12 Billion USD market in the coming five years. Samsung's coinciding Q1 planned release of the Samsung Gear VR Headsets
will allow the technology of Virtual Reality to finally reach mainstream adoption with Voxelus primed as the leader in VR content. Estimated prices will range from 99.99 to 299.99 USD for the Samsung Gear VR Headsets.
Previously, VR headsets were too prohibitively expensive even for developers to use, let alone end-user gamers. VOXELUS PLATFORM SCREENSHOTS VOXELUS MARKETPLACE
The "Voxelus Marketplace"(launching Q1 2016), allows creators to sell and users to buy VR content and games for use on the Voxelus platform. Any user is free to operate and build in the Voxelus Platform, however in order to purchase new or premade content in the Voxels Marketplace the user would require the in-game cryptocurrency ‘Voxels.’ A person is also entitled to expand the asset library by purchasing desired content from anyone and from any part of the world in the Voxelus Marketplace. As the Voxelus Marketplace comes online in Q1 of 2016, it will be just in time for the shipping of consumer grade VR headsets.
