DEFINITIONS / KEY CONCEPTS

The Metaverse is used to describe the concept of a future iteration of the internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces linked into a perceived virtual universe.

A Multiverse is a new term coined by our company. A Multiverse is a universe of universes.

The term Multiverse is significant because it speaks to our approach, one that champions creativity, utility, monetization opportunities, variety of currencies, and an approach that welcomes the integration of third-party technology and IP.

“AlphaVerse” is our commercial name to designate our Multiverse. We chose the prefix “Alpha”, which means “one” in Greek, to clearly spell out our goal which is to be the largest of the metaverses.

Our company is uniquely positioned at the convergence of blockchain, gaming and popular culture, with a distinct vision for the project that leverages the company’s brand recognition, strong industry relationships, valuable IP, and growing footprint in blockchain and cryptocurrency.

ALPHAVERSE / OVERVIEW

AlphaVerse aims to connect many universes into one large metaverse. AlphaVerse is the first metaverse that aggregates other universes in the blockchain space into one shared ecosystem. We will connect as many universes as possible: some will be developed by our company, others will be developed by third-parties.

Participants will be able to travel across universes, experiencing new and different things, all while being able to bring their content and assets with them wherever relevant.

In AlphaVerse, there is a Hub, a central place.  The Hub is the center of the AlphaVerse; acting as a starting place, a gathering place, a place of discovery, and a portal to the multitude of worlds that surround it.

With its open plaza surrounded by oversized screens and kiosks, The Hub will play an important role in accessibility and discovery. Personalized messaging, broadcast streams, and data visualizations will introduce participants to a universe of sensory experiences.

In a nutshell, from that Hub, you can go to different universes. One of them is the Atari AlphaVerse (see below).

Players will be able to play, create, interact, socialize, collaborate, discover and build value. By emphasizing engagement, utility, and rewarding a wide variety of behavior, the multiverse will encourage active participation.

For more information, please see “User Experience” below.

The Atari AlphaVerse is a district of the broader AlphaVerse. Our company has secured a license from Atari to use the Atari brand name & logo, as well as the names and logos of Atari games, for the purpose of branding the Atari AlphaVerse.

So the Atari AlphaVerse is a district of the bigger AlphaVerse. And the Atari AlphaVerse is not the only universe. You can also go to other universes that are NOT branded Atari. Some universes will be about music, some about specific games or experiences.

The Atari Casino is being developed by the ICICB Group. It is a different universe, and will be connected to the AlphaVerse to offer players a seamless connection between the 2 metaverses.

ALPHAVERSE / TECHNOLOGY

AlphaVerse is being developed using Unity.

AlphaVerse will use Binance Smart Chain. If you happen to buy an NFT on an exchange that does not support BSC, we will swap it for a BSC-compatible NFT at no cost.

The metaverse will be a browser-based experience, so you will need a computer, browser and internet access. Technical specifications for hardware will be provided at a future date.

If you happen to buy an NFT on an exchange that does not support BSC, we will swap it for a BSC-compatible NFT at no cost.

USER EXPERIENCE

When you have purchased an NFT, you will be able to modify the name represented in the metaverse.

  • For a piece of land, you will see your name on the land
  • The same will apply to a house, building, flat, etc

There will be some privacy rules, i.e. you will be able to restrict who can enter your private place.

In your metamask wallet.

If you happen to buy an NFT on an exchange that does not support BSC, we will swap it for a BSC-compatible NFT at no cost.

You can rent it, build on it, host events, make it private or open it to the public. You can sell it in the multiverse marketplace, and in most instances on third-party marketplaces.

You can also use your store to sell your NFTs.

There will be some privacy rules, i.e. you will be able to restrict who can enter your private place.

The Multiverse will support both native and third-party creation tools.

Yes. You can rent space from other owners using blockchain smart contracts. In addition, retail and event space will be available for rent in The Hub.

Our development team is prioritizing the development of layered and complex player properties, including personalization of avatars and attributes.

These will be paired with accessible customization tools. In the same manner, the team is working to both provide first-party and to integrate third-party building tools.

COMMUNICATION AND DISCOVERY

AlphaVerse will support P2P, group text chat, voice chat, and video chat.

AlphaVerse will feature innovative, tiered data visualizations, supported by powerful search and filter schemes, to help participants manage the volume of information, and variety of destinations.

We believe the ability to broadcast — to communicate with players that you don’t already know —  is a critical success factor.

As such we are going to build in a variety of communications mechanisms, including native information feeds, kiosks, and advertising platforms that can operate both in a one-to-many, but also in a personalized

manner.

The hub, with its open plaza surrounded by oversized screens, will play an important role in message delivery and discoverability.

Yes, if the player makes their land public, or invites you to if the land is private.

ALPHAVERSE / ECONOMY AND NFTs

AlphaVerse will have a tiered economy, with primary & secondary marketplaces, third-party market integration, and microtransactions to increase adoption.

The economy will also reward participation, similar to a loyalty or rewards program, and allow individuals and organizations to take part in that reward loop.

We believe the future of NFTs are in part tied to enhanced utility, and AlphaVerse will be a platform for innovation in NFT utility. In addition, all tradable objects will operate on a blockchain ledger ensuring uniqueness and traceable ownership.

We will initially offer land, buildings, flats, different types of houses. More categories will be added at a later stage.

Please note that some assets will not be on the blockchain, but only in the Unity game engine. These are smaller assets (chairs, tables, posters, trees, benches, fences, etc…) that players will use to decorate their land, houses, flats, etc..

There are a number of ways that participants can build value in AlphaVerse, starting with buying, selling and renting land they own. Participants can also utilize native farming, crafting, personalization and building tools to create assets that can be traded and monetized.

There will even be opportunities for participants to monetize their actions within the multiverse by sharing their anonymized behavior data with third parties.

If you happen to buy an NFT on an exchange that does not support BSC, we will swap it for a BSC-compatible NFT at no cost.

Each universe, piece of land and building is different. For each of these items, the number of NFTs available is clearly mentioned as part of the minting process. Please check them out.

The multiverse will have different universes. Each of these universes will have a specific and limited number of lands, depending on the gameplay and on the proposed experience.

The number of universes in the Multiverse will be limitless, and it will be expanded in controlled phases. Before buying land in a given universe, please make sure to verify the number of land plots it contains.

Land sales will start with private and pre-sales. If you are interested in being an early purchaser in the multiverse and want to acquire land, please register now.  After the private sale, then the pre-sale window will be opened with a series of sale events. After the launch of AlphaVerse, all original land sales will take place in the multiverse marketplace or in third-party marketplaces.

For each of these items, the number of NFTs available is clearly mentioned as part of the minting process. Please check them out.

This is on a case-by-case basis, please check out the specifics of the building.

Crypto-currencies will be used for governance, and to buy NFTs. A soft currency will also be used to purchase minor assets (chairs, tables, decorations, etc…).

Yes. You will need a wallet to participate in the AlphaVerse. Wallet creation will be part of the onboarding process for new users. Your wallet is your account.

Having said this, you will be able to enjoy some of the games and of the experiences without spending any currency.

We plan to offer a guest feature in the near future, ie to enable you to access to join AlphaVerse without a cryptocurrency wallet.

Our goal is to offer maximum flexibility to the players.

AlphaVerse is using Binance Smart Chain.

In The Hub, we will allow for the use of BNB, bATRI (Binance Smart Chain version) as well as other crypto-currencies, including CRYS for governance and for transactions (See Governance).

ATRI is the main token for the Atari AlphaVerse,

You will need the Atari Token to have access to certain experiences in The Hub and in the Atari AlphaVerse.

In any other given universe, the situation will depend. If the universe is operated by a third-party and they already have a crypto-currency, we will allow for the use of that crypto-currency in that specific universe. We will not always be able to negotiate the use of bATRI, BNB, CRYS or other crypto-currency in their worlds.

In the Atari AlphaVerse, of course. You will also be able to use it in The Hub.

You will need the Atari Token to have access to certain experiences in The Hub and in the Atari AlphaVerse.

The Atari Token will be the crypto in the Atari AlphaVerse.

 

In the other worlds, it will depend on a case-by-case situation. For instance, if we deal with a 3rd-party metaverse and if they already have their crypto, they will keep it and we will add our own crypto-currencies whenever possible.

Finally, in The Hub, it will really depend on the players as we are going to offer the option to use different tokens.

You will be able to join the world but you will not be able to trade NFTs.

BEAT UNIVERSE

The range is approximately 70-75%.

The money is allocated based on the NFTs you are buying. If you buy the NFT of “United at Home”, the portion of the proceeds will go to that charity program or programs selected by them, and not to any other charity program.

David Guetta has so far performed in 4 concerts for United at Home: Miami, New York City, Paris and Dubai.

  • For each of these concerts, in the AlphaVerse about music, a special 2-story house will be offered through auction. There will always be one of such a house per concert, so 4 in total so far.
  • For each of these concerts, in the AlphaVerse about music, a special 1-story house will be offered through auction. There will always be six of such houses per concert, so 24 in total so far.

If new concerts are organized by United at Home, one special 2-story house and six special 1-story houses will be offered through auction.

The offering of these houses is extremely limited and we hope you will enjoy them. You can check out their design and locations on the map in the AlphaVerse about music.

When you own the 2-story special house for any of the concerts (1 house par concert, so 4 in total so far):

  • You are the VIP for that concert
  • Your name can be mentioned on the website of United at Home if you desire
  • You benefit from 4 backstage passes that you can use in one of the future concerts of United at Home in the real world (not for a virtual concert).
  • You also get a personalized gift from David.

When you own one of the 1-story special houses for any of the concerts (6 houses per concert, so 24 in total so far):

  • You are the VIP for that concert
  • Your name can be mentioned on the website of United at Home if you desire
  • You also get a personalized gift from David.

GOVERNANCE

We believe in a decentralized, player-driven metaverse. In the initial phases of development, the Multiverse will start as a more centralized environment and governance will expand and evolve over time.

In order to establish proper governance, we have a specific token on BSC (Crystal – CRYS). CRYS can also be used for transactions.
