With COVID-19 cases on the rise and the worldâ€™s top economies re-considering strict lockdown measures, cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex has taken an interest in SENSO â€” a token focused on bringing high-quality entertainment into the rapidly expanding VR space.
Poloniex Lists SENSO
SENSO is the in-platform currency of Sensorium Galaxy â€” a social VR platform designed to enhance digital communication through compelling virtual experiences like music concerts, dance performances, art exhibitions, and many others.
Developed in collaboration with world-famous artists, producers, and media companies, Sensorium Galaxy has attracted huge interest from the investment community. The project launched in 2018 backed by Forbes-listed billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. Since then, the company has raised over $100 million making Sensorium Galaxy one of the best-funded VR projects to date.
While the platform is scheduled for public release in early 2021, high-caliber artists like David Guetta, Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, and Sergei Polunin have already confirmed their participation. Performers will be virtually recreated to host exclusive shows in Sensorium Galaxy. Users willing to join these VR events would pay with SENSO tokens.
Taking Entertainment To the Next Level
Brian Kean, Sensorium Corporation CCO, explains that â€œSensorium Galaxy is taking communications and entertainment to the next level. People from all over the world will be able to get together and join mind-blowing events prepared by their favorite artists. All done in a safe, virtual manner. Weâ€™re using SENSO to ensure transparency and flexibility when it comes to value transactions within this alternate world. From buying tickets to avatar customization, everything is paid using a reliable and widely accepted blockchain-powered SENSO.â€
Earlier this year, Jay Z-owned music streaming service TIDAL partnered up with Sensorium Galaxy to allow their listed artists distribute content in a VR setup. The international music service invested $7 million in SENSO tokens.
â€œOur relationship with Sensorium provides TIDAL with the opportunity to gain exclusive rights for its stellar artist roster to have their shows and music broadcast exclusively within Sensoriumâ€™s themed virtual entertainment worlds. The Sensorium Galaxy is a next-generation platform for entertainment consumption which will elevate the connection fans have with their favorite artists, and bring the artistâ€™s vision to life in a new and exciting way,â€ says Lior Tibon, Chief Operating Officer at TIDAL.
But Sensorium Galaxy seems to offer a lot more than just quality entertainment. Aside from the shows, the platform allows everyone to generate jaw-dropping avatars and environments in AAA quality powered by Epic Gamesâ€™ Unreal Engine 4. Users can also customize their avatars with a large selection of items and special effects. Of course, all transactions are processed in SENSO.
Sensorium Corporation expects to capture over 1.8 million users who would use SENSO tokens to actively participate in Sensorium Galaxy and purchase VR content. The platform will be available worldwide and accessible through VR headsets (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift S and Valve Index), PCs and mobile devices.
