NFT Art Gallery at VR Expo World
April 26th, 2021
We are pleased to inform our users about the imminent launch of a completely new exhibition space, a virtual art gallery – VR NFT Gallery.
VR Expo World is the virtual world on your PC.
Many of our users often ask questions, comparing the virtual space of VR Expo World with a game, 360 panorama or even a catalog site. This is due to the fact that the very concept of “virtual exhibition” is rather vague. There are many browser-based panoramic exhibitions, the perception of which has changed a lot among users. Limitedness, dry picture and no additional functionality. We have nothing against panoramic exhibitions, but we believe that this is already “the last century”. That is why we have created a full-fledged virtual exhibition in which the user can fully immerse themselves using VR glasses. VR Expo World is a special application created by us, in which various industrial sectors as well as the arts sector were implemented. In the industrial sectors of companies, we place virtual models of equipment from tech companies, create a stylized interior and supplement the application’s functionality with various educational quests. In the arts sector, we create virtual galleries where we host the work of our users, various authors and creators. These can be digital or digitized paintings, photographs, 2D / 3D models and sculptures, short videos, etc.

The application implements 2 modes of user interaction with the virtual world: control and viewing using a PC; viewing and control using a VR headset (glasses + controllers), having previously installed the application on a PC.
What is a virtual art gallery and what is it NFT ?
The virtual art gallery is a separate space in the virtual world of VR Expo World, in which we place various works of authors (photos, paintings, 3D models, etc.). Each of the works takes its own place in the exhibition hall. Next to the works there are stands on which are indicated: the title of the work, the name of the author and a link to the author’s instagram. Imagine an ordinary museum or gallery. Everything is the same here, only you can visit it without even leaving your home.
Everything seems to be clear with the gallery. What about NFT? For the whole world, this is a fairly new technology, inextricably linked with cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
The abbreviation NFT (non-fungible tokens) translates as “non-fungible token”. Each such token is unique, it cannot be replaced, counterfeited, and all information about its author, buyer and all transactions with it is securely stored in the blockchain. And in simple terms, an NFT is a digital certificate attached to a work of art (any digital or digitized work) or any other object. The Certified User (NFT) is the owner of a digital artwork (or other digital object) or the owner of a real painting (object). And such technologies in art are just the beginning. So the Hermitage announced its plans to hold an exhibition of works made in the NFT format, and the artist Mike Winkelmann received a record $ 69 million for his NFT painting.
In our blog, we will try to introduce you in more detail to NFT technologies, tell you what blockchain is and how cryptocurrencies are related to the world of art. Stay tuned for further VR Expo World news on our website, in instagram and on our channel in YouTube
