VR/AR is seeing, touching and experiencing, not clicking, tapping and hitting “play”. VR/AR monetization is constrained by last-century models that work for framed media, but not immersive media. Gaze Coin works at the heart of how this media is actually consumed, enabling brands, creators and users to build a metaverse economy.
Gaze Coin is a patent-registered blockchain platform measured by gaze control/eye tracking. The killer app for VR/AR advertising, copyright tracking and user rewards, we fix the main problem with monetizing VR/AR: How do you measure it?
Development Target: GazeCoin API
The Gaze Coin wallet powers immersive interactions by measuring, conducting and then storing any associated transactions and/or token coins. The Gaze Coin API is able to integrate with any VR/AR content (experience, environment, world) and features a developer toolkit allowing monetization through advertising and gaze-triggered audience engagement.
Virtual/Augmented Real Estate
Gaze Coin is developing a powerful virtual real estate and social network toolkit to function throughout the decentralized platform. Developed from the first use case of Dream Channel VR, an environment already built containing virtual cities connected through an overarching story narrative, the Gaze Coin API will progress to allow unique, custom and connected virtual worlds.
Development Target: Procedural Engine Driving Automated Virtual World Generation
Gaze Coin will build a procedural engine allowing developers to build theoretically infinite immersive worlds created through random procedural generation and deterministic algorithms. A single seed number will be used to create world features via mathematical computation, eliminating the need to create each feature by hand. Content creators (developers) will create a base level design for the look and feel of a singular element (a street, structure or block, for example) and then let the code replicate this for an entire city.
Development Target: Navigation
Systems and The Wormhole
Gaze Coin will build a transport system within the platform that allows users to teleport themselves from one virtual world to another: the Wormhole Transport System (WTS). For the metaverse to reach its full potential, users need both a means and incentive to navigate between worlds and world builders also need an incentive to create these connections. Gaze Coin is the incentive, the Wormhole Transport System is the means.
Development Target: Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Story Engine
Gaze Coin will develop the choose-your-own-adventure (CYOA) story engine. Stories are the true drivers of VR/AR worlds. Story is what keeps audiences engaged and immersed. Content creators (developers, world builders) will be able to use the Gaze Coin CYOA story engine to create the immersive narratives of the future.
Mixed Reality Platform
Gaze Coin will develop the fully-functional Gaze Coin mixed-reality (MR) platform that will employ the AR cloud to power persistent VR/AR worlds. The vision is to connect the real world and the immersive world as seamless environments where all interactions are measured and monetized through gaze.
Development Target: Epic Mixed Reality Game
Gaze Coin will develop a fully developed epic esports MR game that puts the entire Gaze Coin platform into action - an R&D test bed for all stakeholders (content creators/developers, advertisers and users). All revenues generated from the game will flow through to fund the User Growth Pool. The game will test and prove every aspect of the Gaze Coin ecosystem and will be the means of marketing and promoting itself. Esports teams can compete in a winner-take-all matchup for Gaze Coins.
'Gaze Control' is a tool used by creators of virtual worlds that allows audiences to trigger content by looking in the direction of the content - usually initiated by spatial audio - only when they are ready to experience it.
Specifically the model calculates the amount of time users spend immersed inside specific content and creates a micropayment that (i) charges advertisers for that time, (ii) pays the content owner (iii) reward the users for consuming the content - making it free.
Gaze Coin will operate from is own “proof of stake” blockchain, providing VR/AR developers and world builders a platform to launch their own coins unique to their brand or world. The model gives content creators freedom while at the same time building value in Gaze Coin.
General questions asked for participating in the ICO
ETH will be accepted in the crowd sale. You will be required to have an Ethereum wallet of which you control the private key pointed at the token/crowdsale address to participate in the crowd sale. GZE are Ethereum-derived tokens. If you hold BTC, or some other crypto-currency, it can be exchanged for ETH and used to participate in the crowd sale.
There is a hard cap of $35 million. Tokens will be sold at a fixed rate equivalent to 35 US cents per GZE in ETH, until the ICO period ends or the hard cap is reached. The exact ETH to GZE conversion rate will be announced shortly before the ICO start date.
Qualified investors may access a pre-sale bonus through our SAFT (simple agreement for future tokens) partner. A pre-sale bonus will also be offered to strategic investors and investors that wish to invest more than $40,000 USD. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions about the pre-sale. Full details of the token sale are available in the white paper.
