Genius Group is delighted to announce that its Singapore-based Edtech subsidiary, GeniusU Ltd, has completed a seed round to support the development of its Genius Metaversity virtual learning plans, valuing the Edtech subsidiary at $250 million. GeniusU’s online learning platform has attracted over 2.8 million students and 10,300 partners by offering interactive courses and assessments in entrepreneurship, investing, and 21st century skills.

The company intends to expand its courses and programs to interactive learning environments in the metaverse, where students and instructors will connect and learn in global classrooms and virtual 3D environments

In addition, it intends to integrate each student’s AI-based virtual assistant “Genie” into the metaverse as 3D virtual assistants that accompany each student on their personalized journey, as well as its GEMs student credits. GEMs (Genius Education Merits) are earned by students as they study and can be redeemed for GeniusU products and services, in addition to counting toward their certifications.

Existing GeniusU Ltd investors contributed $1.5 million to the development of GeniusU’s Genius Metaversity by purchasing new ordinary shares of GeniusU Ltd at $24.39 per share, valuing the company at $250 million. Genius Group Ltd owns approximately 97% of GeniusU Ltd, making it the majority shareholder. Both are Singapore-based public corporations, with Genius Group being a NYSE American-listed company.

Our plan is to develop a blended solution of real-world, online, and virtual learning to gamify learning and make it significantly more engaging and enjoyable, working with students from around the globe in real time.”

The funding cycle began in February 2022 and concluded in May 2022. It follows the campus subsidiary of Genius Group, Entrepreneur Resorts, raising $0.9 million from existing Entrepreneur Resorts investors in December 2021 at $2.75 per share, valuing the company at $38 million. Entrepreneur Resorts Ltd. is a publicly traded company that is listed on the Seychelles Stock Exchange

Genius Group Ltd is the majority shareholder of Entrepreneur Resorts, holding approximately 95% of the company’s stock

ThirdEye to launch AR metaverse SNS

Published

on

ThirdEye, a global leader in Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence solutions, today announced the beta launch of a fully decentralized augmented reality social media network for consumers. ThirdEye’s AR/AI products have been successfully deployed in the Healthcare/Hospital, eCommerce, Telecoms, and Government/Military markets.

This free decentralized platform will give users control over their own user data, which will not be owned by a central entity

Users will also be able to place virtual AR objects in the real world, upload AR data, create friend groups, have AR calls with virtual annotations among friends, and buy/sell virtual goods/NFTs on a digital marketplace. In addition, there will be an app store where users can add and download third-party apps.

The advantages of this platform over existing social media platforms include the absence of banning/censorship because the platform’s code will run transparently on the blockchain, as well as the inclusion of AR/AI features for a more immersive social experience. ThirdEye’s technology displays relevant AR information using AI predictive analysis. Its remoteeye platform, for example, provides 40 percent operational efficiencies as well as environmental benefits.

“ThirdEye was founded on the belief that mixed reality and artificial intelligence solutions could change the way we work, consume news, and enjoy our hobbies. We’ve successfully developed and launched enterprise products, and we’ve received feedback about developing this platform for the consumer space so that users can control their own data “said Nick Cherukuri, CEO and Founder of ThirdEye. “The extended reality and AI industries have come a long way, allowing us to truly contribute to the metaverse’s construction.”

ThirdEye is a market leader in providing a complete digital end-to-end ecosystem of AI/AR products. ThirdEye develops apps ranging from games to enterprise applications, and its products are sold all over the world. AI/AR has the potential to change the way the world works, and ThirdEye’s vision is to contribute to the creation of the future.

New Salvador Dali art expo in the metaverse

Published

on

Before the internet, Salvador Dali conquered the world. Art fans will now be able to communicate with him in the metaverse. Thanks to the famous painter’s recent incursion into the metaverse, millions of art fans may now be able to enjoy the works of Salvador Dali without ever leaving their homes. A digital art exhibition of Spanish plastic artist Salvador Dal. The exhibition, dubbed “DAL CIBERNTIC” or “Cyber Dali for the English-speaking audience,” will showcase more than 200 of the artist’s works through the metaverse.

Visitors will be able to enjoy an immersive experience using virtual reality glasses, entering a metaverse where they will be able to create their own avatars and walk freely inside the paintings

Exhibition Hub, a company in charge of curating, producing, and distributing major exhibitions around the world, and Layers of Reality, an audiovisual production company specializing in creating immersive content, collaborated on the project. The digital interaction with the painter, who will use his voice to guide attendees throughout the journey, is one of the most realistic features offered by this exhibition. This new model of digital galleries offers something truly unique.

Jordi Sellas, executive director of the IDEAL Digital Arts Center in Barcelona, stated that the goal of the Digital Arts Center from the beginning was to create an exhibition that would be comparable to the “great Salvador Dali.” A dream that they may be able to realize with a project of this magnitude.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for art lovers, as they will be able to walk through Dal’s universe’s four spaces, which include the sea, the sky, the void, and the desert, immersing themselves for 15 minutes in his most striking works.

Although it is currently unknown which metaverse will host this project, it is without a doubt the first to “digitalize” the works of one of the world’s most important painters. We’ve already reached the point where art and the metaverse collide. Perhaps, in the future, the world’s top museums will be housed on the blockchain, democratizing access to world-class art to a wider audience.

NFSeed is a innovative NFT project

Published

on

The Sherwood Project’s first NFT is an acorn, the Oak tree’s fruit and a container for its seeds. The acorn is an united emblem of The Sherwood Project’s goal, radiating color against the background of a question. The Sherwood Project’s NFT, or NFSeed, will sprout like a genuine acorn.

Only 8333 NFSeeds are available. Holders may turn their NFSeed into a new, one-of-a-kind NFT, an NFTree, designed by an as-yet-undiscovered visionary. As NFSeed holders, they will have the ability to help choose the visionary, have a say in the creation of an NFT, have an effect on a film, and have unique access to NFT ideas hatched via The Treehouse program.

This NFT project’s NFSeed is not its final form. For holders, the NFTree visionaries, it is the initial step, the seed of a concept, a blank canvas

Every NFSeed has the potential to become an NFTree, a new NFT designed and created by a budding artist. The holder must determine whether or not to turn their NFSeed into an NFTree. In Q4 2022, the NFTree will be introduced.

The proceeds from the public sale of The Sherwood Project’s first NFT will be used to make a film. The documentary feature-length film, co-directed by The Sherwood Project’s creators, filmmakers Luke Dale and Matt Silverman, will capture every facet of The Sherwood Project’s DNA, from the hunt and finding of an NFT visionary through the Treehouse incubation program and the NFT ecosystem at large.

The film’s modest beginnings will be juxtaposed against the cultural pillars of web3, NFTs, cryptography, and art, providing as a definitive picture, a cinematic Polaroid, of this once-in-a-lifetime meeting of technology and culture.

The Treehouse is a project incubator for Web3 and NFT applications. For chosen NFT initiatives, The Treehouse will offer funds, coaching, and a built-in network of customers and supporters. Only The Sherwood Project NFT holders are eligible to apply to join The Treehouse.

Holders of the Sherwood Project NFT will get immediate pre-sale list placement on all Treehouse NFT projects, as well as airdrops, discounts, and other special offers.
