Cutting-edge platforms such as blockchain technology and augmented reality are increasingly intersecting and creating new digital boundaries that promise to change the way we interact with the virtual and real world.
Latest efforts In this area, the blockchain startup WAX is presented in collaboration with the VR entertainment provider Terra Virtua to connect the world of cryptography with Augmented Reality via games.
The Worldwide Asset eXchange is a Blockchain-based platform that allows users to create, buy, sell and trade digital assets. For the uninitiated, blockchain technology enables secure storage and tracking of digital assets in a distributed ledger. This means that everyone has access to a digital log of what every other user on the platform owns.
With public-key cryptography, the distributed platform ensures that a digital asset remains unique and can not be copied. Access to and control of these digital assets is enabled via a private key. This dynamic, which essentially makes digital assets immutable, allows trading in digital objects in a blockchain as if they were unique physical objects.
Terra Virtua's Augmented Reality app now allows users to access their digital WAX assets interact in the real world. The first type of WAX collector's items made available through Terra Virtua are VGO skins.
These are unique digital weapon skins (such as custom graphics / coloring pages) owned by people they can trade with and even play with compatible games.  Crypto Startup WAX features blockchain-based collectibles that can be viewed in AR via Terra Virtua App. "width =" 532 "height =" 532 "style =" max-width: 532px; height: auto; "/>
