F.A.Q.

ARCONA

What is the Arcona project about?


Arcona is the global augmented reality ecosystem where thousands of developers and 3D artists, businessmen and enthusiasts of this breakthrough technology will communicate, interact and work together. The system is based on its own unique technological platform, which automatically generates a layer of augmented reality everywhere across the globe. This layer called the Digital Land is intended for simultaneously functioning huge number of AR projects of all kinds – related to gaming, historical reconstructions, educational projects and tourist attractions. The format of an extremely large-scale ecosystem will make the AR technology popular, mass and public.




How can I run AR projects on my Digital Land plot?


The most important thing is an interesting idea and access to digital land on the Arcona platform. You can buy any land you want from the system or rent from an owner if that land is already occupied. Then you can create content and install it on your land. This is easy to do since the digital land is fully ready for remote placement and management of virtual objects.




Can users without any programming skills do that?


If you are not able to render your content on your own, you can find suitable objects on the marketplace or order from 3D artists and developers that are members of our system. The ecosystem itself will assist in advertising and marketing your projects.




How many projects can run on a single piece of land?


One physical server can generate one region of digital land measuring 200 х 200 meters. Each piece of land supports a limited number of virtual objects and visitors connected simultaneously. This is called land capacity. You can increase capacity by gathering a pool of several plots in order to support more objects and connect more users. Arcona allows to gather a pool of plots that do not have a common border and transfer the capacity of all plots in the pool to one plot. The transfer of capacity allows the system to generate a layer of augmented reality and bring into active circulation digital land outside high-traffic territory.




How do I set up paid demonstration of AR content for people that are not yet Arcona members and do not have your tokens?


Any user who wants to view project on the Arcona platform has to download the AR Viewer. This application will enable to buy arcona tokens online. Any person can then use these tokens to pay to view or participate in your project. Obviously, any potential customer will need access to the Internet to download the AR Viewer application and pay for the “admission ticket” with tokens.




What game projects are working at Arcona?


Game Gold Rush in Play2Earn format. Install the Arcona XR Metaverse app and go treasure hunt in augmented reality. Open the chests with hidden silver coins. You can use the accumulated wealth for in-game purchases or exchange it for ARCONA tokens. Another exciting AR game in the Play2Earn format Arcona Castles awaits you very soon. Its concept combines revenue pharming in the AR world and gamification with NFT support. The Arcona application takes you to a parallel world, where medieval castles grow against the background of modern landscapes. They are guarded by fire-breathing dragons and other fabulous creatures. You can become the owner of the castle, equip it and accumulate wealth. Each castle has a treasury that generates a regular income for its owner. ' But there are robbers and fantastic creatures in this world who seek to take possession of your castle. So you have to bravely defend your possessions.

Finally, you can join the Freemasons Guild to build the finest castles in the world of Arcona and help defend them. * All castles, characters and attributes of the game "Arcona Castles" are designed in the form of NFT standard ERC-1155. The property rights to them, as well as copyrights are reliably protected. All these tokens can be sold on any NFT marketplaces and used in other blockchain projects without losing value.




Why is Arcona XR Metaverse built on blockchain technology?


Blockchain is the ideal foundation for the economic model of our global metaverse. What in the real world is ensured by the economic and legal laws of different countries, corporate rules and commercial agreements, in the digital worlds is guaranteed by the blockchain. And these guarantees will be universal for any part of the world and absolutely transparent for the participants. Plunging into the metaverse built on the blockchain, you cease to be an ordinary user of the application, you become a co-owner and co-author. You can purchase pieces of space - Digital lands, characters, virtual artifacts. You can create them, sell them, rent them out, give franchises to use your concepts - just like in the real world. Only here will your assets be described in the form of tokens, which confirm the authenticity and your ownership, as well as the right to manage and monetize this asset. Everything that belongs to you in the blockchain metaverse is actually yours in the form of an NFT. And anyone can see the details of any NFT transaction and access the records of who owns what. Blockchain technology is enabling the rapid expansion of the ecosystem through the participation of a large number of interested token holders from all over the world and filling the platform with the most incredible content. The in-system ARCONA token entitles all ecosystem participants to buy and lease plots of Digital Land, create their own projects on them and demonstrate the results of their creativity. In addition, it is the transparency of the blockchain technology and the operation of smart contracts that provides additional guarantees of the ownership rights of the owners of the territories of the Arcona platform, the protection of the copyrights of developers and artists, and also makes all transactions within the system more reliable and transparent.




Tokenomics Arcona


The main asset of Arcona XR Metaverse is the universal information AR layer - Digital Land, where users can independently and remotely (from the workplace) post interactive content anywhere in the world. A ready-to-use web of markers is placed across the planet's surface to anchor interactive content. The open modular architecture allows any third-party solutions to be integrated. You can buy, sell, lease Digital Land in exchange for the ARCONA Token. ARCONA Token - Equivalent to the value of all digital assets in the Arcona metaverse. Using the ARCONA token, you can sell your lands, creative 3D content and software to users, attend interactive exhibitions, buy professional services in the Arcona ecosystem (software code, advertising, content, etc.), participate in promotions, games and special events. - ARCONA is a 100% utility token. The crowdsale of the project ended in July 2018, and the total supply was 15 181 707.01308544976911725 ARCONA. Tokens were distributed as follows: team - 20% (vesting: 5% for 6 months, 5% for 12 months and 10% for 18 months after the completion of the ICO); advisers - 7%; bounty - 2%; reserve fund - 11%; sold to users - 60%. Currently, all ARCONA tokens have been bought out by the community and are in circulation. A fairly even distribution of tokens between holders protects the market value of the token from manipulation by large players, which ensures stability and complete decentralization of the project. Other ecosystem assets such as Digital Land, content or software code are non-fungible ERC 721 tokens. The ownership of these assets, as well as the terms and value or royalties for their use, are recorded in the smart contract. Thus, each piece of Arcona Digital Land is an ARDL token of the ERC-721 standard. Its smart contract contains all the basic characteristics, including an identification number, geographic coordinates, information about current and previous owners. Smart contract: 0xdf5d68d54433661b1e5e90a547237ffb0adf6ec2 In June 2021, at the request of our community, the team launched ARCONA on two parallel blockchain networks - Binance Smart Chain and Minter. At the same time, the total volume of tokens simultaneously in circulation on all blockchains does not exceed 15 million ARCONA. Now our users have more freedom to use Arcona digital assets at various sites, and the project has become more resilient to external influences. In the near future, Arcona will be deployed on several more blockchains.




What is the key advantage of Arcona


Arcona is focused on remote positioning of virtual content and lowering the threshold of entering the AR market by making it faster and cheaper. Arcona Core is more than a development framework like ARCore or ARKit, but a fully-featured ecosystem which allows the creation of AR experiences without coding - AR content can be placed remotely, using just a web browser. Arcona solution is an independent cross-platform and not tied to Google or Apple services - the core library is written in C++ and 3D/UI module is based on Unity. Additionally, the core library is designed with shared/multi-user AR approach in mind, provides both outdoor/indoor usage scenarios, and works in low-light conditions. VIO/SLAM, based on sensor fusion of image data with IMU and GPS - performs accurate positioning and distance measuring using sensor data of smartphones and other commodity hardware; Cloud-based geo-information system with fast algorithms of creating digital plots anywhere in the world and assigning virtual content to them; Cloud-based feature-map/relocalization system which utilizes sensor data collected during user sessions or taken from publicly available datasets. This allows us to eliminate GPS inaccuracy and provide shared AR experience by using visual recognition and geometry alignment. As an extension of the feature map system, we can create dense 3D models for visualization, passing the data which we collected and aligned to photogrammetry software like Photoscan/Metashape





DIGITAL LAND
