A creative startup called Bali Twin Metaverse is attempting to create a digital twin of the destination. The project aims to change the way visitors can engage with the local way of life.
Gamers and blockchain fans can explore a playful, full-scale recreation of Bali as part of the Metaverse experience, which is advertised as metatourism.
The Indonesian government has supported Bali Twin Metaverse. PT Blackstone Indonesia, Black Lava Camp, Grhadi Bali Entertainment and Kicau Mania are the owners of the digital objects. However, Since the Bali Twin Metaverse opened, anyone in the world can visit the virtual replica of the tropical paradise at any time.
Bambang Soesayto, the creator of Blackstone Indonesia, outlined how the project works in an Instagram post. “Metaverse is an augmented reality (AR) technology that allows individuals to virtually interact with other people. In this metaverse world, users can do everything in virtual form, e.g. B. Gathering, holding meetings, working, playing, organizing various events, attending concerts, shopping online or buying a digital property.”
The Bali Twin Metaverse will essentially transform Bali art, landscapes and architecture into digital duplicates that can be traded as NFTs on the Metaverse Marketplace. The goal of the project, according to the company’s litepaper, is to “merge the boundaries between blockchain and traditional gaming and help preserve Bali’s culture.”
With the backing of notable partners like the Indonesian government, Blackstone Indonesia (not to be confused with Blackstone Group), AWS and Epic Games, they will no doubt make a difference. Building an advertising platform for brands and property owners is one of the goals of Bali Twin Metaverse. They want to create “the most detailed digital twin in the world”. They pay close attention to every aspect.
Bali Twin Metaverse has just announced a collaboration with Kicau Mania, which has one of the largest collections of Balinese bird songs in the world. The sounds will be integrated into the Metaverse experience, adding an additional element of realism to the digital encounter.
The metaverse is a “A real-world simulation sandbox that reveals the mysteries of ancient Balinese civilizations in a futuristic setting.” According to the game description. Users will be able to start their own businesses, make real money, create and monetize objects, and even buy, rent, or sell land in digital Bali through the Metaverse.
The game’s graphics are impressive, as is NFT’s digital artwork. At the end of August, the company offered the first NFT Hanuman and Barong masks on its Internet marketplace. It was hoped that by digitizing and modernizing traditional Balinese arts, the program would help promote the island’s distinctive culture.
