Blockchain-powered 3D and VR open source platform for creation and integration of spaces and objects, MARK.SPACE is now making strong inroads in the rapidly evolving world of Virtual Reality. The project’s recently launched token crowdsale campaign has already caught the attention of the investors and VR enthusiasts from all corners of the world.
There is no denying the fact that VR is an incredible technology with unlimited possibilities. However, in terms of content production and usability, this technology can be rather complicated for most of the potential users. Moreover, so far, the need for expensive specialized equipment has restricted the growth of VR audiences.
MARK.SPACE looks to overcome these barriers by developing and implementing a user-friendly tool to quickly create and launch all types of VR/3D projects. Most importantly, all projects created on this open source platform can be accessed from the commonly used devices such as a PCs, laptops, tablets or smartphones through any web-browser, or using a VR-headset.
The ultimate goal of the project is to create an economy that would enhance, complement and, ultimately replace the existing online economy by merging virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and cryptocurrencies into a fully functional ecosystem.
The MARK.SPACE ecosystem comprises of multiple VR units, each of which can be linked directly to its own top-level domain. All transactions involving these units are recorded on the blockchain to guarantee property right to the units. All unit owners will be able to buy, sell or rent their units to others by executing smart contracts on the platform. All transactions within the platform can be completed using an internal currency called the MARK token (MRK).
This utility token allows users to sell and buy VR spaces and objects, consume various goods and use services, pay salaries to their employees and to buy ads to promote their businesses through MARK.SPACE.
Unlike the other existing VR platforms, MARK.SPACE makes it possible to visit the virtual spaces without pre-registering or paying any membership fees. The platform currently offers four thematic districts, viz. shopping, business, residential, and community.
These districts allow users to visit virtualized copies of actual fashion boutiques, offices, apartments and fan-clubs. It also presents lucrative commercial opportunities for the business-owners or freelancers to create a stream of income, and productize processes by turning virtual services into sold goods. The platform’s demo is currently available online at https://demo.mark.space/
In the recent months, MARK.SPACE has garnered much attention at some of the most renowned blockchain technology events and conferences all over the world. During the World Blockchain Summit in Dubai, the MARK.SPACE team had the opportunity to meet key representatives of the financial and real estate sectors, and Science institutes.
The team has also pitched the platform to a major architecture firm while attending the CryptoBazar event in Hong Kong. In November 2017, Jaguar Land Rover Russia has decided to collaborate with MARK.SPACE to integrate JLR products and services to the platform’s VR system.
Headquartered in Singapore, MARK.SPACE is the brainchild of a team of experts with a wealth of experience in a wide range of industries and functional areas. This team has invested more than two years and more than $5m of personal funds to bring MARK.SPACE to its present stage.
Highlighting their development plan, a senior spokesperson from MARK.SPACE mentioned, “After the Token sale, our prototype will be further enhanced to improve the functionality. The goal is to achieve full decentralization for the benefit of both users and those providing computational capacity and storage resources. This will enable rich functionality from the platform.”

MARK.SPACE is a new generation of the Internet: compatible websites that, on the one hand are independent (since they have their own domain) and on the other are united by a common transaction and accounting system on the Blockchain and a global search engine. In addition, any user can visit and even have his own the 3D / VR / AR (virtual reality / augmented reality) space inside the universe MARK.SPACE for free
