Investing.com – It’s called OMA3, the Zurich-born association, and its core members include some of the biggest and most innovative names in the industry, such as Animoca Brands, Alien Worlds, Dapper Labs, MetaMetaverse, SPACE Metaverse, SuperWorld, The Sandbox, Upland, Voxels, Unstoppable Domains and Wivity.

During the 2022 Lisbon Web Summit, the co-founder and COO of (Sebastian Borget) told us about Metaverse, about the collaborations underway and how he sees this innovative and particular world.

About Web3

“An association was born to create an inclusive Metaverse, it’s called OMA3to create technical standards within the Metaverse, to date the Metaverse is still very fragmented, with several different projects, and we had the idea of ​​giving a voice to users by combining more realities that can have a single voice, Together we are stronger!

Within the “open” Metaverse, digital assets flow freely between OMA3 virtual worlds, benefiting from greater security and traceability of assets between worlds. By creating common standards, users can transport the digital objects they own across metaverses, creating a universe of interconnected virtual worlds that prioritizes user experience and ownership over domination and platform censorship.

It is not only a representation of the simple transport of one’s goods from one world to another, but also a means of not losing one’s memories, one’s history and one’s nature when moving from one world to another.

There are four groups organized and divided according to the tasks to be performed.

  • The first group deals with the transfer of assets (NFT, identity, account) between different Metaverse (creating transfer standards that require different technologies).
  • The second group deals with portals and mapping, trying to develop solutions that allow you to create round-trip portals to move between worlds.
  • The third group will be of a legal nature and will deal with data protection, GDPR and, more generally, all the problems of a regulatory nature of the environments.
  • The fourth group will be linked to the ecosystem in general, responsible for the relationship between the partners and for all issues of a relational nature.

The success of this new alliance is quantified in two ways, the first on the technical articles published and put online and the second is linked to the number of users and companies that will use it, such as the number of avatars that will move between worlds For example.

Among the questions asked was the current situation of Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ :), a very underperforming tech company that has long specialized in the Metaverse (the stock is down nearly 70% from its highs) and how OMA3 intends to overcome this “Winter Metaverse” by exploiting new technologies …

To which Sarojini McKenna, CEO and co-founder of Dacoco (sitting next to Borget) replied:

“We are trying to define together a new category, a new technology and users are experimenting with a new way of interacting with the Internet and other users within the metaverse. I think it will be interesting for users to test this new way of interacting with content in to which users will be co-owners and entrepreneurs, and users respond very well by creating their own assets, games, we have also tested this and it is a winning model in the mix between identity and content.
