OVR sees itself as a world-class emerging metaverse platform that bridges the gap between the virtual and the real world. The platform is based on augmented reality and the Ethereum blockchain.

OVR wants to bridge the true digital divide with augmented reality experiences across multiple camera-equipped smart devices such as smartphones or virtual reality glasses. With the expansion of the Metaverse, OVR aims to expand the digital space of accessibility, ownership, and investment opportunities.

OVR is specifically designed for interaction and content creation. Users can create and trade 3D content and participate in play-to-earn games similar to Pokemon Go. The AR platform wants to enhance the attractiveness of its own platform through these financially profitable and interactive experiences for users.

Total: Dividing the world into hexagons

The aggregate is basically a 3D digital plane that divides the real world into 1.6 trillion hexagons. The OVR team chose hexagons rather than the usual squares or triangles, believing this division is more accurate.

In addition, more digital lands are created – which in turn increases sales: with OVR tokens, users can buy and permanently own the coordinates corresponding to a hexagon. Each hexagon is about 300 square metres.

Similar to web domains, the purchased coordinates are unique and unambiguously owned by individuals in the aggregate. Each property, or OFRLand, is an individual NFT. According to its own data, the startup has already auctioned more than half a million digital properties.

In the next step, OVR wants to expand the real world with real-time augmented reality experiences. Inspection in a physical location aims to bring users into a world with a specially designed AR environment. Virtual events should take place in real time in real concert halls or malls, for example.


The OVR platform wants to be the communication element between the real level and the digital level. Users interact as realistic looking avatars that OVR automatically creates based on their profile picture.

OVRLand users and owners can also publish and share the 3D content they create using OVR Builder, an in-browser 3D editor. One OVR user describes his strategy: “Buy Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle) -> Turn it into a Haunted House -> Enter Fee -> Boom, passive income!”

The principle of play to earn is intended to encourage the desire of users to participate in the development of the platform. Specifically, OVR provides a “map to earn,” where users go on a treasure hunt and search for physical locations for tokens. OVR can use the data to improve its maps.

Diego de Tommaso, COO and co-founder of OVR explains that like the rest of the OVR metaverse, Map-to-Earn is still in development. Geolocation poses some problems because GPS accuracy is limited.

The OVR app is available on the Android Store and iOS Store. At the end of January 2022, OVR announced the switch to Polygon, which will reduce transaction costs.
